    Anyone remember how easily we defeated Sadam's army? Anyone remember when the statute of Sadam was pulled down? Anyone remember the MISSION ACCOMPLISHED banner behind Bush? Of course we do, esp the left because they love to toss it back in the right's face! However, they forget the sense of accomplishment back then (by both the right and left). We thought it was as easy as Desert Storm, but we were wrong. The struggle was just about to begin. The feeling of accomplishment was lost quickly and forgotten!

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7g_lxhNUUM&feature=player_embedded]Five Years On: The man who toppled Saddam - 09 Apr 08 - YouTube[/ame]

    I believe that is what is happening now! The news is playing heart warming stories of the Islamic Rebels taking for Tripoli (just as they did with the fall of Sadam). They are making it like a Democratic free country will emerge! What they are not seeing is Libya, while ruled by an iron and unjust fist was relatively stable. It was a poor country, but it's citizens weren't starving or without water. It had less crime, AIDS, poverty and the HIGHEST standard of living of any country on the entire AFRICAN continent! That somewhat stable society has been dismantled. No one knows what will emerge, however, if it follows the trend of other African countries after a coup, you can expect violence, political and ethnic civil war, atrocities committed on both sided, famine, rape and a 10 fold increase in poverty. This is far from a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! In fact, Obama should learn from Bush's blunder when declaring victory to early!

    In fact, while Gaddiff was in power, Libya was NOT an Al Qaeda sanctuary and they weren't developing WMD!!! They weren't a threat to us. That could and probably will change.

    Now to the rebels. We don't know who they are! We don't know if they will move in Sharia law, but there are already signals that it will be part of it's structure (much like the Taliban coming to power in Afghanistan after we helped them remove the Soviets). Who says they will be pro-american? The Ficticious country of Kosovo is far from pro-American. In fact they are a Islamic terrorist hotbed! Afghanistan worked with OBL to launch 9/11! Kuwait backstab us! Sadam was disloyal after we armed him to the teeth against Iran! So what makes you think these Libyanese rebels will be any different? In fact, the greatest amount of foreign fighters in Iraq came from the Libyanese rebel ranks! THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN FIGHTING US FOR YEARS!!!

    Now to the Libyanese society. It's a tribal society. They are more loyal to their tribe than to the country (sounds like Afghanistan). Gaddiff kept them all in check. Now there is a power vacuum and their will be a power struggle! Expect ethic fighting for supremacy!

    I caution libtards to scream victory too early! It can and most likely will bite you in the ARSE! It could and probably will turn into this:

    They can't possibly let the thought that Obama's foreign policy decisions lead to the eradication of an Islamic dictator without one single loss of an American life sink into the brackish hateful goo that's inside their brains.

    It freaks out anti Obama folks when Obama's policies work regarding foreign military policy...work better than theirs.

    I think the OP is trying to assert that Obama is repsonsible for Libya for the next ten years. I mean it does make sense...Bush left Obama with two unfinished wars and a trashed economy, and now it's all Obama's fault. Never underestimate the conservative Christian right.

    what 'policy'? His 'policy' was to let someone ELSE take the lead for once. So far, so good. But it's not Peace Prize worthy or anything.
