Cue the overlaid music for a scene of slaughter

Washington Post noted here
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who is opposed to military action in Syria, pressed the assembled witnesses to pledge not to launch any attacks without congressional authorization.
The Obama administration has maintained that it retains the right to act even without congressional approval, but Paul said that flies in the face of the Constitution, which gives Congress the power to declare war.
“Ask the people on the ships launching missiles whether they’re involved with war or not,” Paul said. “If this is real, you will abide by the verdict of Congress. You’re probably going to win, just go ahead and say it’s real.”
Kerry didn’t take the bait. Instead, he repeated his previous statements that the administration isn’t entertaining the possibility of losing the vote — despite clear indications that it could.
“The president intends to win this vote,” Kerry said.
 The administration just informed each member of Congress that it is willing to purchase their votes, because for any member of Congress to do the despicable thing of voting with their actual conscience against war against another nation of people means placing a far too honest decision upon Obama himself, and since he has already demonstrated his mortal willingness to sell away pieces and portions of his soul he will fold as the craven moral coward he is, and a man of such insecure vanity cannot ever triumph where honesty is so public. He knows this. His handlers know it. Kerry knows it.

And now all the evil men and women of soured eyes and sallowed jowls know it, right down to their shriveled, lich-powered hearts.

This is the bloodbath. This is one more step in the dismantling of civic responsibility.
