    I don't think the Administration is that concerned about the devaluing dollar. If they were they wouldnt be spending so much or printing so much to devalue it.

    The rebels are actually from Libya, so no it is nothing close to what we did in Iraq.

    True but the rebels have been supported by the US for years. They are a proxy US army.

    Yeah? than how come we are not arming the rebels and stood by for a month and did nothing when Ghaddafi hammered them? The US is not as deeply embedded with these rebels as you think.

    This whole operation is a joke anyways, if "NATO" wants Ghaddafi gone so bad they should do it on their own without us.
