Of course, “genocide” means whatever she wants to mean.

Charismatic? Other than having written a book that the libtard liked and having married the metrosexual Cass Sunstein, there isn’t much else there. Charisma? I saw her do an interview once - it looked like she was talking to her shoes.

The phrase “testosterone fueled war” (or similar) was used countless times in reference to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Would it be fair to call Libya, and other “humanitarian” interventions “estrogen fueled wars”?

What is she thinking? Just peruse her infantile book. She is as whacked out as any Code Pink dyke.

The better question is why the Rats always slip in to there diatribes that she is attractive. This broad couldn't get picked up at a convention for Blind Sexaholics.

Power is obviously an impressive intellect, and her ideas cannot be easily dismissed.

There are probably several hundred thousand FReepers who would have no trouble easily dismissing her ideas.

Where is the evidence that a genocide was about to occur in Libya? I keep hearing the claim but what was it based on?

The question is not what is Samantha Powers thinking, but what is the leader of the greatest nation in the world thinking when he listens to three dipstick broads and goes to war while on vacation.

Obama isn’t a fool , he is a damned fool and he is saving the Titanic by going below decks with a hole saw.

Just a personal guess here, but I think it was based on the fact that Obama wanted to wag the dog, and the word "genocide" might be accepted a a casus belli by the U.N. Ipso facto, genocide is happening in Libya.

None. Wishful thinking on our part that when Daffy beat the rebels he’d do something like in 1996 when he executed 1200 jihadis in prisons after some jihadis tried to kill him.

Something akin to what Mubarak did after a failed assasination by AQ in AddisAbaba in 1995.

BTW, the Egyptians just released Zawahiri’s brother from jail on terror charges as part of a political prisoner amnesty.

Genocide - Use the word and peoples programmed response kicks in.

A slaughter, a massacre, a bloody victory - the viciousness that accompanies a losing failed rebellion, but a genocide....

Liberals have their own lexicon-”genocide” just means “lots and lots of people”. It’s like when they say “racist” (meaning, we don’t like what they’re saying) or “redistribution” (meaning, stealing money to buy votes), or “freedom” (also stealing money to buy votes.)

So Sa-Mahn-thu wants to stop massacres wherever they happen?

Stopping bloodbaths was one of the reasons the United States went to war against a variety of Communist insurgencies and regimes around the world for 70 years. How did she feel about that?

I recall quite clearly that Hanoi Jane REFUSED to condemn either the North Vietnamese with their "re-education" camps and the Khmer Rouge with their insane Year Zero massacres of 2 million people. Is Ms. Sunstein of the same opinion?

Funny how I think she might be in the "Yes, but..." camp on that.

Saddam Hussein was responsible for the deaths of 1.3 million human beings. Those on the left didn’t think it was a good idea to capture and hang him.

Whatever is right.

Obama’s certainly picked a nice distraction to the the budget battles.

And led to war by a bunch of harpies with no plan, no endgame, no strategy for victory (wazzat, too male centric a concept)an open ended bombing campaign with CIA boots on the ground for weeks now (Obama LIED the other night) technically not “troops” and a rebel force consisting of jihadis!

Brilliance, thy name is Obama’s “strategery”.

The War of Penile Envy, brought to you by Powers, Rice, Slaughter and Clinton.

Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Obama, How many Civilians did you kill today!

All to support an oil grab by France and Britain.

Power is going to learn that anti-genocide campaigns conducted with air strikes and cruise missiles often break more eggs than they rescue. There is always a butcher's bill. If Qaddafi and his loyalists burrow in and hold out in Tripoli for an indefinite period NATO (the U.S.) might be faced with sending in ground troops or conducting a more brutal air campaign with collateral casualties. If fighting turns into urban warfare civilians are sure to be the first victims.

BINGO!

Libya is already a “success” whether it fails or not.

That is because Libya is the precedent.

Israel and ‘ Da Jooz ‘ are the REAL TARGET !

To expand and clarify your remarks - she wants the US military to invade Israel to stop the “ongoing genocide” of Palestinians.

Dangerous woman working for George Soros. That's what make her dangerous. She would be nobody without his support.

You are right, their R2P is a blueprint for attack on Israel.

I've been told by somebody who knew her that she actually used to be a nice person. Something happened at Harvard that took her soul away.

Actually, I think this foreign born socialist hag believes that undermining US sovereignty in favor of the UN is the top priority.
