Obama Rules Out 'Land Invasion' in Libya
Wednesday, March 23, 2011 Washington (AP) - President Barack Obama Wednesday categorically ruled out a land invasion to oust Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi as coalition forces launched a fifth day of air strikes against government military targets in the North African nation.
We have very different definition of that word.
BTW exactly who are we turning this over to? Who on earth wants to control this hot potato? And why, if Obama is doing such a good job, does he want to turn it over?
Great leadership - expecially the part where He exercised a power that He said He does not have.
THAT"S leadership. folks.
NATO will take over when the attacks on Libyan Army (ground-forces) stop.
And France needs to be sent home, I totally agree with today's NYT editorial
That the international consensus through the UN resolution is causing so much trouble within NATO is France's fault. Ego issue.
I am sick of wasting good American lives on these people. I am as liberal as they come, but to send my son to fight for these people who would just as soon dance in the street during 911 it makes me sick.
Yeah, great leadership. He has Obama to thank for only having one leg, considering thats a civilian child , and that and the other civilians shot were locals trying to help, Obama has probably conducted a war crime already just a few days into it. Then again children don't matter to the US government, after the half a million killed due to the Iraq sanctions.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Arab/Islamic world starts writing up Obama's war crimes, and in an ironic flip flop the people who supported this intervention actively condemn it.
Leadership??? Really?? He let the U.N lead on this with our money and our troops without congressional approval. He has yet to lead on anything, he let Pelosi and Reid ram through the 787 billion dollar stimulus bill that still is not working and the massive health care bill all WITHOUT his leadership. He is NO leader. Never has been. Never will be.
France doesn't want to retreat and give command to NATO.

It's either to be NATO or NATO stays out.
Not NATO operating side-by-side of France, who itself is NATO member.
