Palin was the first national Republican to call for a no-fly zone - LONG before the UN approved a no-fly zone and LONG before Obama committed to a no-fly zone.

Thanks for jogging my memory on that. You're right. She did call for a no-fly-zone before Obama actually committed to doing it.

For what it's worth, I would rather see our troops executing that mission under President Palin's leadership, than under the auspices of NATO, or the UN, like Bozo's trying to do.

At least they'd be under the command of someone who really commands. The mission objectives and the political objectives would be clear under Palin. Not so with Barry.

"The mission objectives and the political objectives would be clear under Palin."

And what would those political objectives be, exactly?

The fact of the matter is it's becoming clear - and many people warned well beforehand - that the "rebels" were and are supported by al-Qaeda. Put another way, our "no-fly" zone is giving aid, comfort and cover to some of the same men who have been fighting US service member in Afghanistan & Iraq for the last 9-years.

There was never and is not now a "mission" in this Libyan civil war for the US military. And, to anyone with even a passing understanding of the history of Libya the last 50-years, this would have been self-evident. Gaddafi has claimed - correctly as it turns out - that the Cyrenaican tribes have been working with al-Qaeda for years. In fact, Gaddafi has been a partner with the us, providing intelligence.

Calling for and implementing a no-fly zone was a huge tactical blunder on our mistake - and it's a blunder shared by Obama, Gingrich and Palin.
