We're not discussing the Hunters' willingness to fight for what is right. Rather, this thread is about the supposed power of the President to commit American military forces on the basis of a UN resolution and nothing.

Hunter never mentioned the UN. Why put words in Hunters mouth?

Now why don't you post a quote from Hunter's article that you disagree with.

There is so much in Hunter's op-ed that won't stand up to the harsh light of reality it's a waste of my time and yours to do a point-by-point rebuttal.

However, I see that newzjunkey made a good start in his post above, to which I would add (based on what I heard 0bama say last evening) Hunter is totally off-base in his thinking that the massive aerial attack on Libya begun on the night of March 19 was some kind of a surprise.

Of course Gadhafi had been warned ahead of time, and the whole world had to have been aware that the UN Security Council had "authorized" establishment of a "no-fly zone" which to the layman means little but to a Marine veteran of two wars means, just as SecDef Gates had said a week before, you first take out the target country's air defenses.

An act of war? Yes, I think that qualifies. Rep. Hunter must think otherwise.

If you still think Hunter and 0bama are right, you would not want to read the comments that follow his op-ed on the San Diego Union-Tribune's web site. They're more vicious than anything posted here.
