Skip to comments.Obama's Libya speech: Libya is no Iraq
Posted on 03/28/2011 6:25:33 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
President Barack Obama, addressing the American people directly for the first time since military operations began in Libya, offered no new details about how the U.S. commitment there will end, but pledged that Libya wont be another Iraq.
Regime change there took eight years, thousands of American and Iraqi lives and nearly a trillion dollars. That is not something we can afford to repeat in Libya, Obama said.
Seeking to sway a country divided and confused by the unexpected air and naval mission against Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi, Obama laid out a sweeping rationale for the action, arguing that it would have been wrong and strategically catastrophic to have allowed Qadhafi to massacre rebels and civilians.
We knew that if we waited one more day, Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world, Obama said in a speech at the National Defense University in Washington....

He is very dangerous to our well being.
No, there was actually a PURPOSE for Iraq.
Clarity and Obama are no match.
I doubt very many Americans watched the teleprompter reader tonight. Commie lib ‘RATS maybe, but not Americans.
“...He is very dangerous to our well being....”
It is much worse than that. All one has to do is digest the content of the Marxist, Muslim and population control timebomb so deceptively called “Obamacare”, which supposes to have something to do with medical care of God only knows who, really. There is so much more, but that should be more than sufficient.
Yeah, why don’t we?
2 Burma (also called my-own-bar, a nickname from the thugs running the place but embraced by the media for god only knows what reason)
4 North Korea
5 You know, by about this country we’d be getting really good at it and could keep going indefinitely, heroes to the world, and actually the only hope for the future in the long run. And I’m serious as a heart attack about this.
Yeah..killing civilians, and breeding more terrorism simply by our involvement...oh ....wait..wait a minute here.
Yeah and Libya has Congressional approval...oh ...wait..wait a..minute.
So then Obama has now vindicated George W. Bush and is now OK with George W. Bush going into Iraq to stop that humanitarian disaster? I wonder if all the lefties are onboard with this?
‘That is not something we can afford to repeat in Libya’-—
So he spends $600 million in 6 days of his war in Libya.
All words and platitudes. Can’t put trust in a word he says.
It ain’t war when the Leftists do it — it’s breathy heroism.
Summary: It is someone else’s fault and I vote “Present.”
“That is not something we can afford to repeat in Libya, Obama said.
But not being able to afford something has never stopped Commander Zero.
Obobo is fully invested in regime change now and that means replacing a lunatic with a new inbred pack of howling pro-Shariah, gang-rapin’ Muzzie dogs.
Win The Future?
No, he ripped Bush on the Iraq war in his speech.
Yep, he declared himself a “real leader”.
Why not challenge Obama in front of his own supporters by commenting?
You will see lots of people like us also challenging him. The more the better. The good thin is... you can protest without even getting up out of that chair
Something had to be done about the aging of the "baby boomber' generation and their "drain on the economy", and nothing's more effective to "solve" the "problem" than reducing their medical care and thereby shortening their "useless, economy-draining" lives. We baby boomers are still young and active enough to fight back with a vengeance against this diabolical plan called "Obamacare", the only question is 'will enough of us recognize it for what it is, (the shortening of our life span), and fight against it'? Respect for human life in America has diminished since the legalization of abortion in 1973, Obamacare is simply the logical progression of this tragic process.
Ironic, isn't it, that the great 'humanitarian' Obama is using American boys to fight for his muslim friends in Libya, while leaving we Americans back home here to fend for ourselves? When will the American people wake up to the fact the liberalism is a Trojan Horse that is destroying us all?
Obama 'birth hospital' hides White House letter
NEW YORK Obama's alleged birth hospital has locked in a storage vault a letter President Obama purportedly wrote to the hospital on Jan. 24, 2009, declaring it his birthplace.
In an email exchange with WND, Slom's office staff confirmed that Martha Smith, the hospital's chief operating officer, said a copy of the Obama letter is currently hung in the administrative section of the hospital, away from public view, while the original is stored for "safekeeping and preservation."
I finally get it now Obama war good, Bush war bad.....
Who voted this man into office I can’t find anyone who wants to admit they voted for him.
I hope we all wake up before 2012
[[No, there was actually a PURPOSE for Iraq.]]\\
There is a ‘purpose’ to obama’;s little private war in libya too- to arm terrorists, and make sure these terrorists get control of the ogvernment there in order to usher in the Mahdi/caliphate in order to wipe out the infidel Jews and westerners
[[But not being able to afford something has never stopped Commander Zero.]]
what he REALLY means is that for every dolloar spent in libya, one less dollar goes toward reelecting obama and lining hte pockets of the grab-happy democrats before they get booted out of office into the gutters and sewers where they belong
Such an irritating quote because it's loaded with backhanded meaning in that typical Obama way. Does he really think anyone thinks this Libya situation is on par with Iraq? Of course not. Mostly he just saw an opportunity to use the phrase "a trillion dollars" in connection with Iraq. So he stands up his little strawman and goes for it.
Libya as Gates stated , is not in our National interest.
And our Pilots were attacked in the UN ‘no-fly-zone’ over Iraq
Those missles we are dropping like candy are $560k - 1.4 million EACH. That does not accout for the down plane and manpower. I heard it was over a BILLION dollars in less than 1 week.
