Lets turn this around.  How would you feel if Canada or Mexico decided that they needed to cross our border and attack someone without declaring war?

He may be saying that, too, but that is not the clip I heard/saw.  What 
I saw was his answer to a question about insurgent forces hiding in 
Pakistan coming across the lines to ambush and raid our troop, and he 
was asked if we should be allowed to follow them back across the line 
into Pakistan, essentially, invading without authorization, especially 
since the Pakistan government has forbid us to enter their country.
Obama said we should go after them.

Ironically, I actually agree with that...the McCain campaign did not, 
but I do.

Nukes, submarines, and a power vacuum.  Not a good mix of things.
