Traditionally, Congress has had to authorize the use of military force across the globe. One candidate for Illinois’ 13th Congressional District says lawmakers have punted that responsibility to the executive branch too much in recent years.
John Ebel is a navy veteran that is running as a Democrat for the U.S. House seat. He appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show, and says no matter who the president is, Americans should ask themselves if the power to send our men and women into battle should be left to one person alone.
Ebel says his biggest global security concern is what is happening in Syria.
Ebel says when it comes to North Korea, it seems that their primary goal is regime survival, and they aren’t likely to use force to expand their influence.
