MARK LEVIN: What the House has done, let me just say this, is extraordinary. They've given the president authority to train 5,000 moderate whatevers in Syria. I guess they know who's what. This is very interesting to me, Sean. The president doesn't think he needs Congressional approval, a declaration of war or what have you, to bomb, but apparently he needs congressional approval to arm 5,000 whatevers.
This is very odd. I just want to point this out. You actually have a revolt going on with the top generals and Obama. I'm talking about tanks pulling up to the White House and so forth. These men are trying to communicate to the American people that they are military men and we cannot defeat this enemy unless we use all of our armed forces and armed services. That's number one. Number two, Obama does not view this as a military action. He keeps telling us it's not a war, it's not a war. For him, the truth is it's about politics. It's about containing this issue politically for him so he can focus on fundamentally transforming America. And this is a very serious matter to understand.
So the generals and the military see this quite differently than our very political president who really doesn't want to defeat this enemy. Or he will go to Congress, get a declaration of war, unleash hell on these cockroaches and then get out. Instead, he speaks to our military men and tells them don't worry, no combat boots on the ground. He has said it a thousand times so everyone of our enemies in every single language can understand under this so-called commander in chief he has no intention of defeating them, period.
