Where was this anti war bullshit when Obama wrecked Libya and helped kill their leader?

    So, your question is why, I assume the left is anti-war, when you don't want war with N-Korea? I'm a bit confused.

    Now I am too. I guess I misunderstood your original post?

    I'll try to rephrase. I understood the question as why did the left didn't oppose Libya while now being vehemently against war talk with N-Korea?
    I replied by stating that Libya was not so much considered a war, as a liberation after the populace rose up against a hostile regime. While N-Korea although arguably even being more oppressed doesn't have the same friendly populace and even more importantly can't be liberated without causing unacceptable loss of life.
    I thought my reply covered the premise of your OP.

    It may have but I've spent the day watching ball, teaching my grandson to ride a tricycle and drinking.

    Never mind then, I just saw you were active on this OP and I thought it interesting enough to want to discuss. Since I could understand how the 2 positions could be considered hypocritical.

    Fair enough but the op is kinda old at this point. At this point I'm relegated to watching Lego Batman to stop my grandsons protests so I'm relatively useless

    You have no clue what the Libyans wanted, all you heard was propaganda to justify a war. You are a big dumb dupe.
