    Another UN-Mandated disaster. They support an opposition that is as brutal if not more-so than the Government they're forcing out. I can only Pray we don't get involved with that mess. But who knows? I guess we'll see.

    So ALL situations are exactly the same to you are they?

    In order to intervene in the Ivory Coast, we WOULD have to put "boots on the ground". You cannot institute a "no fly zone" there.

    Oh, and the Ivory Coast exports oil.

    Principal exports are petroleum, cocoa, coffee, pineapples, tuna, rubber, and tropical woods.

    Ivory Coast Economy

    Republicans say we are broke. Thus, we can NOT afford another war. And, Republicans say negotiations and talking wont work. Only force will work.

    Note to Republicans, yet again: WE CANNOT AFFORD YET ANOTHER WAR.

    Obama is not the one who got us into two wars. In case you haven't noticed, we have not gone to war in Syria either. As for Libya, our involvement was minimal at best. It's not our job to police the entire world.

    We're broke. We cant afford more wars. We cant afford to be the source of military welfare for the rest of the world.

    Reminds me of Reagan when Sadam used chemical WMD's on Iranians.
