    Depends, when is Obama going to ask for congressional approval? You can't vote for it and then against it until you get a chance to vote.

    @Alex

    No, they are not 2 extremely different things. The only way that this would be different is if Libya had performed an act of war against the United States. Obama must get authority before bringing our troops into a war or performing acts of war, against another nation. The UN resolution (UN resolution 1974) does not compel the United States to be a part of the actions.

    Obama must give reports to congress and if he cites Section 4(a)(1) (50 USC Sec. 1543(a)(1)) of the War Powers Act he can keep them there for 60 days.

    The president can not act unilaterally unless the US has been attacked.

    John Kerry is a fake. First of all, he's not Irish, despite his name. Many people know that his grandfather was a Jewish convert to the Catholic Church and his mother was a Protestant. He calls himself a liberal, but who can tell what his values are, since he changes his opinions all the time. At least Ted Kennedy was a man you could trust to be consistent, regardless of whether or not you liked his politics.

    We are not in war with Libya. The UN ( not us alone ,UN) is Enforcing a no fly zone. These are two extremely different things.
