Obama Has No Need For Congress As We Blow Libya’s Ass Into Non-Kinetic Pieces

May 21, 2011

In an effort to satisfy those arguing he needs to seek congressional authorization to continue US military activity in accordance with the War Powers Resolution, President Obama wrote a letter to congressional leaders this afternoon suggesting that the role is now so “limited” he does not need to seek congressional approval.

“Since April 4,” the president wrote, “U.S. participation has consisted of: (1) non-kinetic support to the NATO-led operation, including intelligence, logistical support, and search and rescue assistance; (2) aircraft that have assisted in the suppression and destruction of air defenses in support of the no-fly zone; and (3) since April 23, precision strikes by unmanned aerial vehicles against a limited set of clearly defined targets in support of the NATO-led coalition’s efforts.”

“The US role is one of support,” the official said, “and the kinetic pieces of that are intermittent.”

Obama needs no Congressional support for attacks in Libya as we blow their ass into nonkinetic pieces.

Raining Bombs On Libya Redefined As Kinetic Military Action, E Is For Everyone

March 25, 2011

It appears that the United States is not engaged in a war in Libya after all. According to the Obama administration, America is engaged in a “kinetic military action.” Apparently, that is what happens when we rain bombs and missiles on another country.

If the distinction between “kinetic military action” and “war” is lost on the reader, than he or she could be forgiven. The Obama administration is not the first to use euphemisms to avoid using the “W” word and to try to cloak the reality of what it means to kill people and destroy things as a matter of public policy.

Left wing word speak redefines war as kinetic military action in an effort not to upset everyone.
