    And the Left was still Calling Iraq "Unconstitutional" and everything else from Vietnam to Nazism...

    And even Today, the Lefties who are going after Barry for Libya aren't being Honest when they say this is what Booooosh did.

    Barry didn't take it to Congress nor did he get a Joint Authorization for this 3rd War... At least Dubya did... And waited and waited for Saddam's friends in France to hold up the Job for him.

    One more thing... the UN ain't the Boss of us, People... :thup:

    :)

    peace...

    People totally forgot the corruption of Oil for Food (Which was really, Oil for UN security Council votes), which we would never have found out about if not for the removal of Saddam.

    Bush went to Congress to authorize an invasion force of 100,000+

    Obama has approved the launch of cruise missiles

    BIG difference

    No, not really. Frankly, I don't care if I get taken out by a Tomahawk or an grunt with an M-16. Dead is dead.

    BULLSHIT!

    I'm sorry, but WTF is the point? I mean besides wasting money we do not have? What is the strategery? What is the hopeful outcome? Who the hell are we to shoot at a sovereign nation? Libya posed NO direct threat to the US. Everyone against the Iraq invasion and occupation used these same "rules" as to why we shouldn't have been there. RW, if you cannot call bullshit on this one, then perhaps you are not as Independent as I once thought?
