Typically when congress gives the president the power to do so.

I'm pretty sure they have been using executive orders and then have the backing of national security which allows them to do it without congress.

He set up that precedent.

Well, any way you slice it - it's harder to get away with it without congressional input for hot topic issues. Syria is definitely a hot topic issue.

Because any other country won't step up to the plate to help these people out and America always saves the day.

Are you suggesting that Assad and ISIS are on the same side?

What's happening in Syria is horrific and Assad is a monster

But we can not bomb a country into stability that much should be obvious by now

I don't want to say yes, but yes Assad hasn't done anything to stop the spread of ISIS which leads me to believe he's okay with monsters running around with bombs and guns and beheading Christians.

We contributed to ISIS via these kinds of policies

Every time you topple a regime there, an equal or worse one will sprout up in the name of restoring stability

He may be irresponsible, wreckless, and short-sighted with it, but all of those attacks that kill ****loads of his civilians are targeting ISIS.
