    Like George Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton, Obama has done things the correct way.

    Have the correct intel, get the support of our allies, set achievable goals, and be on the right side.

    Sounds great........................but....we don't know who we're backing or the end game, is ghadafi to be taken into custody?, who controls Libya?, who gets the spoils?, OIL. And a whole encylopedia of unknowns. Major mistakes again.

    The same is true of Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Japan, Germany, Vietnam, the Soviet Union, and every other situation in human history.

    Republicans supporting Kadaffy is fun to see though.

    Obama was very clear during his campaign for President that the Iraq war and Gitmo were responsible for creating terrorists. A main point was that Iraq never attacked us.

    Well, Gitmo is still open and Libya never attacked us, and Obama is blowing the crap out of them. Meanwhile...........The left is eerily silent.

    Like I said...

    Get the support of your allies, have good intel, and achievable goals.

    Clinton won the war in the Balkans without losing a single American soldier.

    Bush Sr. got the support of almost all the industrialized nations for the Gulf War, even the Japanese.

    It's called diplomacy. It works really well when you use it.

    So, when we decided to free the Iraqi people from their oppression, it was wrong. But deciding to free the Libyan people is okay?

    You're a fucking idiot.

    This is just another war, like Iraq, that we have no business engaging in.
