Few savor the idea of voting for military action with the midterm elections looming
中期选举逼近,几乎没有人赞同采取军事行动

White House photographer Pete Souza tweeted a photo of President Barack Obama and Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough taking a meditative walk on the White House grounds Monday. It was a small reminder of the infamous walk the pair took nearly a year ago when Obama decided to go to Congress for permission to bomb Syria. That proposition turned out badly: Congressional support cratered and Obama was left to scramble a diplomatic solution.

白宫摄影师皮特•苏萨在推特上发布一张照片,照片中总统巴拉克奥巴马和参谋长丹尼斯麦克多诺于本周一在白宫草坪上进行思考性散步。这让我们想起上一次他们两人进行这种非正式的散步是在一年前,当奥巴马决定寻求国会的允许攻打叙利亚的时候。这个提议的结果糟透了:国会支持出兵,奥巴马扰乱了外交解决方案。

On a gorgeous Monday evening nearly a year later, the pair in their shirtsleeves could have been discussing almost the same dilemma: How does Obama continue to bomb Iraq and begin aerial strikes on Islamist militants in Syria without permission from Congress?
在一年后的一个美好星期一晚上,这两个人的衬衫袖子峰会可能讨论的几乎是同一件处境尴尬的事:奥巴马要怎样在国会不同意的情况下继续攻打伊拉克以及对叙利亚的伊斯兰激进分子展开一系列打击?


There are some in Congress who are calling on Obama to push through a War Powers Resolution. Article II of the Constitution grants the President the power to defend the country. But Article I gives only Congress the power to declare war. So, what in a post-War-on-Terrorism era constitutes an actual war?In 1973, afraid of Vietnam mission creep, Congress passed the War Powers Act, which requires the President to consult Congress 60 days after engaging in hostilities. If you count bombing a foreign country as hostile—as the U.S. did against militants in northern Iraq on Aug. 7—than the 60 days expires Oct. 7.

国会的一些人建议奥巴马推进一项战争权力决议。宪法的第二条授予总统有守护国家的权力。但是宪法的第一条规定只有国会有权发动战争。所以战后恐怖主义时代的什么构成了实际战争?1973年出于对越南使命蜕变的担心,国会通过战争权力法案,法案要求总统在发动战争行动之后的60天内要同国会商议。假设比起看成为期60天到10月7日的终止你更愿意把攻打外国看做敌对,正如美国在8月7号时对北伊拉克激进分子采取的那样。

ps;红色的是不确定的。
