Republicans being anti-war, isolationists
oh neat .....
It was the law passed by the Democrats. It is either the law, which should be obeyed, or it is unconstitutional and should be repealed. I would rather see the latter, but either way makes sense in this instance.
The whole Libya thing is an exercise in what everyone on all sides keeps promising we will never do again, even as we key up to do it again. It is an open ended engagement of US forces in a place we have no legitimate interest on a side we don't trust and which does not respect us.
It is this kind of thing that the law was supposed to end forever.
They couldn't be playing politics when peoples lives are at stake could they? So they had the vote & it passed BUT, when it came time to vote on de-funding the evil operation, the Repubs "flinched". Wha happened
By "this kind of thing" do you mean protecting civilians from slaughter by their own leader?
They made their political statement but refuse to cut off money to their buddies in the war machine business.
Defense contractors have been making a ..... tidy profit the last decade w/ Repubs in control of the House for 6+ yrs of that time.
Still making shit tons, maybe more now that Dems and Obama are in office... What is your point? Obama is the biggest war president in our history, why is it a bad thing that people don't like it? Oh, it's all political when Reps call Dems out as being the war party but when Dems do it to Reps it's because... well see, that's where I get lost.
Our NATO Allies AND the Arab League called for action on Gaddafi. You know the guys a whack-job if even the Arab League wants him gone. The U.S. is simply in a supporting/logistical role now anyway. Lettuce not forget that the West has $70,000,000,000 of Gaddafi's assets frozen too
Just a replay, remember how antiwar they were during Bosnia?
And how Bush was against nationbuilding and the US being the police force of the world?
Partisan puppets are so predictable.
