    LIBYA IS NOT OURS
    we don't want it and we don't have to.


    as we should be. We cannot afford to police the world anymore and there is no reason to when other have an equal responsibility since we are all threatened where there are injustices anywhere.

    Multilateral is the word to use for dealing with Qaddafi and should have been the word used when dealing with Saddam.

    When we were being attacked by Qadaffi is when we should have acted and did not. Libya is not our call today and we have done our part. End of issue. We are not the only one that can deal with Qadaffi and it is not ours. We are not calling the shots. No fly zone is no longer ours.

    If Qadaffi is removed, we will not be the one to remove him

    We are a member of a body, not the body and as a member of the UN, we all have a purpose. There are no leaders, we all have a part to play and none play independently. If we had done things differently in dealing with Iraq, we would not still be there 8 years later.

    Obama did this or that, did not do this or that, shoudl lhave done thsi or that, Obama did exactly what Obama should have done as a member of a body.
    There is no we or Obama, but us the UN.

    I think the whole operation is backfiring on not only Obama but Hillary. Mrs Clinton addressed the Country and tried to look presidential and instead looked like a fool while she tried to justify the bombing. Meanwhile the president fled to South America and tried to pretend he wasn't involved. What a bunch.

    What part of "obama and hillary is not calling the shots" do you not understand? We did not start this operation. UN and NATO did with the approval of 28 countries and with mulitilateral action.:confused:

    Obama was in Brazil trying to get our asses some cheap oil since our need for oil is not going to disappear ever. Brazil has a good subsitute with Ethanol also. We need Brazil as our friend for our future.

    Operation Odyssey Dawn is working. FYI. IF it does not work in is no blame on hillary or obama. Not like Iraq.

    We don't want Libya. It's all about the Oil.

    NATO did not start this operation.
    NATO did convey for 4 days, before there could be reached an agreement with serious frictions during the negotiations with Germany pulling all her military assets from NATO operations in the Med-Sea as a reaction to the whole operation which now has been outsourced to NATO.

    This whole thing was started by France, and history-books will write, that USA did deliver the most of the bombs.

    Libya is not ours

    Not yet..give us a few more weeks. You think that air cover is for free? Somebody owes us at the pump for all this stupid turmoil in the Mid East.
