    US role in Libya costs hundreds of millions so far - Politics - More politics - msnbc.com

    I can only assume Obama is borrowing money from Communist China to fund this operation. I will ask the same question as I have asked about Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq. What are we getting for our $$?

    And if history is a good predictor of our next moves....we will spend billions bombing the shit out of Libya, and then billions more to build back what we spent billions to bomb the shit out of....

    We are lift holding ther bag as usual, this "coalition" is already falling apart and the US still has the lead in combat operations, so much for leading from the rear. We are going to have to put humpty dumpty back together again as usual.:doubt:

    Where is the outrage from the Tea Party over this? We are broke, remember? We can't afford another $1B to blow up yet another ME country....

    Per usual, VaYank is spot on, this is a time for people who claim to be fiscal conservatives (myself included) to prove it by speaking out against this.

    what makes you think members of the tea party are not against it?
    I have seen members of all walks of life against it...of all parties...of all ideologies.
    I am sure there are some tea partyers that are for it as well....so are some democrats and so are some republicans.

    Why are the tea partyers held to a standard of "all is either black or white"?

    Me?

    I was all for the no fly zone.....But I am not interested in our broke country spending all kinds of money tossing in tomohawks at 500K apiece.
