    Just curious if forumites agree or disagree with the US getting involved removing another ME tyrant.

    Do you support or oppose Obama's actions against the Ghadafi regime....

    You should have made the poll show who voted for what.

    Don't want anyone to see who thinks that they are lib/con. The point of the poll is to see who supports or opposes joining with the other nations collectively to help get rid of the bad Colonel.

    I don't want to pick nits about how slow the process was, is it too late, etc.

    I am generally conservative. Well for the most part anyway.

    I support the President in his decision because I am confident that he knows more about the situation than I do. I supported the war in Iraq up to and no farther than the capture of Saddam Hussein.

    I think we need to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan and let those people fend for themselves. However, I am sure there are national security reasons, aka oil, that will keep us in both locations for decades if not forever. I do not want us to get into a war with Libya. I am confident that militarily we can crush them. So we go in and get Qadaffi, then what? More "nation building" Whoopie!!!

    I'm VERY Conservative and I most definitely OPPOSE Mr. Obama's use of United States military forces in Libya; just as I have been opposed to the regime change in Iraq and Afghanistan which was begun under former President Bush.

    The ongoing violence in Libya has NOTHING to do with the United States, therefore we should not be involved in its resolution in any way.

    In Iraq and Afghanistan there were issues related to the United States (Iraq - Hussein's plots to assassinate a former POTUS & Afghanistan - support of individuals who had attacked US soil). Those issues should have been dealt with similarly to how Dresden, Germany and Japan were dealt with late in World War II. Especially Hiroshima and Nagasaki.... Minimal chance of loss of US life with MAXIMUM loss of Iraqi/Afghani life.

    It's not 'Obama's actions', it's a UN action. Completely different.

    Completely oppose....Just like I did for Iraq.

    This is even wore...Congress wasn't even consulted, let alone was their constitutionally required approval sought.

    Our dippy dithering Boyking sat on his ass and only piled on after the UN acted...Since when is any U.S. military action dependent upon the approval of that band of Euroweenies and dictatorial miscreants?

    But there's that (D) next to the name of the occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania, so the Winston Smith wing of the Democrat Party is at full war whoop.

    Nope, the UN doesn't command ANY U.S. military forces. Obama could beg off and say that we are fully engaged in AFG & Iraq, that "this is one that the EU can handle w/o the US."

    Congress wasn't consulted, so next time the dems should remember this one.
