You rightwingers need to stay on script.  Not  more  than a couple of days ago your news network was complaining about the administration NOT doing anything.


That was a complaint about him not doing anything about the Japan disaster.   And he's still not.   He's not handling that situation any better than Bush handled Katrina.


By the way, I"m not a "rightwinger".   I dont give a crap for either the republican or democratic party.    I just call it as I see it.

Exactly what would the US government do if it faced a heavily armed citizen uprising? Waco Texas ring a bell? Were those people shown mercy?....A battalion of tanks was the government's response! Would the UN set up a "no fly zone" over the US? Then would the British & French take out anti-aircraft installations here?
Furthermore, the evacuation channels made available to Western nationals airlifts across the Mediterranean were not and are not being offered to Libyan civilians nor African migrant workers trapped in Libya. If the humanitarian welfare of civilians in Libya were paramount, they, too, would have been offered this secure escape route. Instead, once Western nationals were safely out of harms way, coercive measures were adopted without any effort to protect or evacuate the civilians that were left behind in Tripoli and beyond.

You seem to be confused between a psychotic pedophile with a messiah complex and an "armed citizen uprising."

You peeps are grasping for straws - from comparing the Japanese crisis to Katrina and now the Libya action to Waco.

Any way to find an angle to criticize the administration.

It's so transparent.

Let us know when Obama does something right.   I haven't seen it.

Shouldn't you be monitoring Fox News for irrelevance?

Maybe a poor example but let's say the Nation of Aztlan movement gains momentum and poses a serious threat to national security and the President orders the military to crack down on it.
Would the UN intervene on behalf of the uprisers?  Like him or not, Gaddafi is the established ruler of Libya, has been for 40 years  Doesn't he and his govt. have the right to defend their power base against a coup d' etat?  What right does the U.S., Britain, or France have in getting involved in a Libyan civil war?  And what are the real reasons for it?  Did we get involved in Zimbabwe in the 1980s when thousands were massacred?

Good to know Barry will have followed all the steps precedent to attacking a country - the whole discussion with congress, their agreement and authorization....

You rightwingers need to stay on script.  Not  more  than a couple of days ago your news network was complaining about the administration NOT doing anything. BTW, this kind of action doesn't require Congress's approval.


Dbucfan is Murdoch??

Oh, the whole thing is hypocritical; I agree. But it's not valid to compare Waco to the citizens rising up to overthrow a tyrant. Still, we're only getting involved because we don't like their current government and we're just seizing an opportunity. If Libya was closer or more pertinent to our political agenda, we would have manufactured said opportunity long ago. But the whole thing is subjective, as the saying goes "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter."

For the record: If Barry wants to bomb Gadhafi back to the stone age, I'm all behind him. 'bout damn time I say. As long as it is limited to Tomahawks and Airforce I have no problem.


Just NO ground Troops.

here's a hope, thought - perhaps Barry outwaited NATO and the Arab countries and made them commit in order to get American participation.  and if Gaddafi happens to not make it - well there is no downside.  now wouldn't that be nutty
