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.
