US getting ready to go to war again?

.... according to mainstream media accounts of it, it seems that way.

"War" again ... but not declared.

Gotta' problem with that?

Some people do, including many members of Congress ...

From Truthout:

... "at least 162 Members of the House of Representatives, including 64 Democrats, have done at least one of the following things in the last few days: 1) signed a letter initiated by California Democrat Barbara Lee saying that there must be Congressional debate and vote before war with Syria; 2) signed a letter initiated by Virginia Republican Scott Rigell saying that there must be Congressional debate and vote before war with Syria 3) issued a statement calling for a Congressional debate and vote before war with Syria. I don’t claim that this count is exhaustive. If you know of other examples, please share them in the comments."

What are the mainstream media outlets saying about this?

Not much. Instead:

White House making case on Syria

U.N. inspectors start leaving Syria
