Exactly why, precisely, the hell, is what happens in Libya our problem?

Its the BUSH DOCTRINE for the Mid East, all over again.

maybe the GOP should start chanting “Unilateral intervention” ? Oh, that was the MSM and Dems chanting it and denying the facts on the Iraq “Invasion”.

I think this war at 10,000 feet is like Obama flying over the “Midwest USA”....no much will happen on the ground because of it. Too little, too late, and hope for change may not yield the desired results. Good luck Rebels, Obama has spoken from Brazil, and his words are empty.

Yeah, he was.

We're living in an Alice In Wonderland world. I thought Gadaffi was the crazy one. maybe I had better step back and re-evaluate the situation.

No,no,no... You just don’t understand....

Democrat ObamaWar is a kinder, more gentle way of killing people, that makes the dead completely invisible to any US network TV camera.

Just ask any anti-war liberal about this.

Obama needs an enemy to get America united around him. Iran was impossible for Obama to go after. They both share the same feelings towards Islam.

I have a hunch military action at this point in his administration had been planned long ago to coincide with the 2012 election. When we're at war they believe the incumbent has even more of a chance to get reelected.

They just had no idea which country it would be.

Nearly a year of debate in congress and the UN before Bush got approval from both to “rush to war”.

Obama holds out for 3 freakin weeks and doesn’t even bother talking to congress and liberals call him “retrained”.

And Iran

Difference is, Relatively speaking Gadaffi and US were warming up to each other compared to our relationships with Iran and North Korea.

In other words, North Korea and Iran are more of a threat to America so Obama's not going to go after them.

Clinton says that "we have every reason to fear that left unchecked, Gadhafi will commit unspeakable atrocities."

Clinton, a writer for Glamour Magazine...

because Libya is where Italy and France get a lot of their oil and where they and Germany have a lot of business investment which Qadaffi has threatened to destroy

Think of the european businessmen, think of the humanity...

Remember 25 years ago, we lost an F-11 and brave pilot out of Lakenheath because France would not let our guys fly through fench airspace to attack Qadaffi’s radars after he killed a US serviceman and threatened international shipping in the Gulf of Surt.

Bah. Humbug.

Now that the administration has decided to go to war with Libya, AP is printing articles that justify Obama’s action.

Apparently, according to the left, Saddam's gassing of thousands of his own people, his use of rape rooms and torture chambers, and his systematic murder of all political opponents were "speakable atrocities."

This creature as our Secretary of State is an “unspeakable atrocity.”

Actually Hillary did make a statement about that. Obama has nothing to say but to her credit Hillary did. Of course since the press is more or less boycotting the story, it wouldn't be widely known that she did.

Secretary Clinton said she was "shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the brutal murder of an Israeli family early Saturday morning in the West Bank."

Clinton also said "This is an inhuman crime for which there can be no justification. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the victims and with all the people of Israel."

I’m more concerned with Iran. I think it is a much bigger fish and this too do about Libya is (deliberately?) drawing focus away from Iran.

Well... we didn't need proof of where zero's sympathies lay, but it's nice of him to put it all out there for those whose eyes are uncovered to see.

Even @ NRO, the readers are 2-1 AGAINST this. NRO!

Yet, there's nothing we can do to stop it. It's not like Congress has a role in acts of war. /sarc

Talk about a lack of legitimacy ...
