Newscast Media WASHINGTON—As US President Barack Obama prepares to start yet another war in Syria, House Republicans are asking him to justify such military action against Syria's Assad.  Obama has not yet made a case against Assad, even though he and his Administration have accused Assad of using chemical weapons, before the UN inspection has been finalized.


Boehner asks Obama for answers in his letter as the administration continues to sound the war drums.


"What results are the Administration seeking from its response?" Boehner asks.

"What is the intended effect of potential military strikes?

"Does the Administration have contingency plans to respond should Assad retaliate against U.S. interests or allies in the region?

"Does the Administration have contingency plans should the strikes implicate foreign power interests such as Russia and Iran?"


Republicans have threatened to impeach Obama, in particular, Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) who last year introduced a resolution saying the use of military force without authorization from Congress was an impeachable offense.

"If one of our troops goes to Syria and is killed, I will introduce articles of impeachment against the president," Jones said.

"No president, Democrat or Republican, should have the authority to bypass the Constitution and the will of the American people and bomb a foreign country because he does not like the leader of the country," he said.
