Two-Bit Napoleon
Things get worse by the day in our country.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Pentagon is seeking congressional approval for development of a new weapon able to strike distant targets an hour after they are detected, a newspaper reported on Monday.

The International Herald Tribune said the weapon would be a non-nuclear version of the submarine launched Trident 2 missile and be part of a president’s arsenal when considering a pre-emptive attack.

The president’s arsenal? But… but… that old, outdated, quaint Constitution, which we were foolishly taught to revere as the highest law of the land, makes the now laughable claim that only Congress has the power to declare war — and that the President of the United States is not a King.

Evidently our republic is finished. Oh well.
