Mattis Wanted Congressional Approval Before Striking Syria. He Was Overruled.

You are making an assumption than anyone attacking President Trump's decision to do this gave President Obama a pass on it. I'm sure some did, but the issue is that you are turning a current political decision re: the current president into one about a prior issue and a former president. It makes it feel like you either just want to attack Obama or to deflect from attacks on Trump that you bring it up at all. I'm just explaining how it seems and why you are getting the reaction you are getting; I'm sorry if the appearances don't match what you are trying to say. Would you want to clarify? What Obama's decisions and administration have to do with criticisms of Trump's? Or why you think anyone was saying in this thread that it wqs okay for Obama but not Trump?
