As the situation in Syria and off the coast of Yemen escalates, we face what could be an escalating global conflict. Pushing this to the edge of the verge of U.S. presidential elections, could actually put in a place a mechansim to halt the vote and declare a state of national emergency.

There is certainly no doubt of the term limit for a U.S. president.

Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

comment: also a president may not act without Congress declaring a war or involving troops in one.

The War Powers Resolution requires the President notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30-day withdrawal period, without a Congressional authorization for use of military force (AUMF) or a declaration of war by the United States. The resolution was passed by two-thirds of Congress, overriding a presidential veto.

It has been alleged that the War Powers Resolution has been violated in the past – for example, by President Bill Clinton in 1999, during the bombing campaign in Kosovo. Congress has disapproved all such incidents, but none has resulted in any successful legal actions being taken against the president for alleged violations.[2]

comment: Clearly the election is becoming a circus. Will a first strike be called by the U.S. in one of the flash point areas if Russia sends in more troops or one of the American or Allied ships are sunk by a Russian or proxy missile? 

What would happen?  America would no longer be a true democracy and all the executive orders since Kennedy would become effective.

Yes, it's all over the religious channels. Some people are seeing this as the End of Days and whether it is - is a matter of personal belief.

Yet, things are a mess and without strong leadership and diplomacy - there will be a war. 

At the very least with incidents of violence and a break down of law enforcement in large cities, they could be anarchy. All of this would create a crisis which could result in a declaration which would keep the current administration in office. Sales of weapons and bullets are on the rise and some people are wondering, if it all goes down hard, will they be forced to protect themselves.

Today October 15, 2016 nearing the U.S. Presidential Election - will there be one?

An escalation of wars would proberbly work in favor of trump-so the present US government may want to avoid such an escalation as long as clinton is leading in the polls. Wikileaks may bring out a lot of info the clinton-clan would like to hide. 

It would not be the first time US elections influenced US foreign policy. But it may turn out very dramatic this time.
