Put your political bias aside and consider the implications of a US president bypassing congress and ordering planes in the air to bomb a defenseless country in Europe. The concept is preposterous but it happened about a dozen years ago. I saw prime time news feeds showing Belgrade Yugoslavia citizens dressed in suits and carrying briefcases on their way to work running for cover as sirens sounded and a police station blew up. For what? To force the surrender of a single man? To deflect criticism about disgraceful conduct? When you have the cooperation of the media anything is possible.
