I'm reminded of a story I read years ago in "Proceedings". A Soviet ship was shadowing some US ships in the Med. After days of this, the US CO sent a message to the Soviet skipper. They were getting ready for an exercise and if the Soviet ship wanted to participate as the OPFOR they were welcome. The Soviet CO declined.This CO can handle it.
Great article. I think he absolutely needs approval within 90 days, but we haven't even reached 100 days of this term. So much can happen in 90 days!!!Read a recent article which stated that the authority the President has in prosecuting the war against Al-Qaeda & ISIS does not hold against the Syrian government as it is a nation, not one of the 2 terrorist groups mentioned. The article follows that he would need Congressional approval within 90 days. Unsure who makes the call in this case (Supreme Court?), but I am assuming that if Congress really wanted to assert it's authority, they have a case....as per this article.
