      Ah, how refreshing. Another anti-Obama thread.

        You expected anything else from me.  Come on, John, honestly.  Just for you I will come up with something other than an anti-Obama thread.  Maybe an anti-Marx - Karl that is, not Groucho.

          Why not a pro-Groucho thread?

            I will see what I can cobble together.  May take a couple of days ignoring the news and clearing my head.

              What is the difference between a flower and a weed?  Perception or maybe public relations.  The insidious and insipid nature of liberalism is more accurately analogous to the weed than the flower.

                you're claiming the dandelion as your metaphor.  I simply completed it.

                  I have never understood the desire to kill all dandelions.

    Compared to who? Compared to what alternate foreign policy?

    President Obama is not running against himself. If/when a candidate shows up with better ideas,  I will vote for him (or her). But when I compare what Obama has done, mistakes and all, with any GOP potential presidential candidate, I am grateful for who we have in the oval office.

      You mean repeating "W"s foreign policy and ladling a heavy syrup of Libyan killing on top is your kind of foreign policy.  That is good to know.  Maybe the next Democrat war monger will get us back into Vietnam.  Four More Years!

      As for the "her" candidate - Hillary has said Bashar al-Assad is her man - yet another foreign policy genius waiting in the wings.  She also thinks no Uncle Hosni in Egypt is better when the Muslim Brotherhood is poised to take over. Awesome.  Barry and Hilly what an unbeatable team!

        Lets look at Newt's policy on Libya. He was in favor of a no-fly zone, until Obama endorsed a NATO no-fly zone.

        The other front-running GOP candidates (Palin & Trump) couldn't find Libya on a map.

          Who cares what that media whore and friend of Pelosi has to say.  He is as wrong as Barry.  An act of war is an act of war - we are now at war with Libya.  Way to go Peace Prize man!!

          As for the Palin/Trump crack - that is just the typical arrogance.  Oh Republicans are dumb because they just are..blah, blah, blah...worthless twaddle.

          By the way - WE ARE NATO.  NATO has no meaningful military capacity without the United States.

              Doug Hughesposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              There's 28 countries in NATO including Great Britain, France, Italy, Spain, Greece.... All of them closer than the US to Libya. In many ways all of them stand to be impacted more than the US by unrest in the region. We are not going to put boots on the ground. Supporting NATO is the lesser of two evils.

                Agreed, but the US has most of the muscle. I am not anti-Nato.

                Not one of them has a tenth the American EUROPEAN inventory of assets.  The Brits fired ALL of their cruise missiles the very first day.  None of those countries is capable of extended air action because not one has an aircraft carrier.  American defense forces make up the most substantial portion NATO's military capability. 

                In some cases equaling or surpassing the military capacity of countries containing American bases.

                Do a little search on line the vast right wing military empire of the United States spans Europe.

                So it is a good thing for Americans to slaughter Libyans for Europe's irrational addiction to Libyan oil?  I guess we owe them a favor(except France) for their support during our "unilateral" war in Iraq.

                If Iraq was a "unilateral" war and over 20 countries were involved isn't Libya a "unilateral" war - our president is still killing brown people for their oil.

    we have  boots on the ground.  CIA   Trainers  .At least i read that.

    1. Doug Hughes profile image61
      Doug Hughesposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      CIA, yes. Not trainers. We know who Ghadafi is. He murdered hundreds of American civilians bombing a plane over Scotland. Three years ago, using influence with BP, Ghadafi got the bomber (serving a life sentence) released. We know Ghadafi now. No doubt.

      We don't know much about the opposition and we need to know. This is info you can't get from satellites or drones. My hat's off to the CIA operatives on the ground.

      1. uncorrectedvision profile image59
        uncorrectedvisionposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        He is also responsible for the bombing at a German Disco that killed American soldiers - wait they shouldn't be their that is just too darn close to Libya.  The fact is that the American soldiers, sailors and airmen are in harms way as much as any of their European counterparts and at least as well if not better capable.

        Not three years ago but in 2009(under Barry and Hilly's watch.)

            WOW, you just don't do sarcasm very well.  But that just makes me love pushing those buttons even more.  You liberals are a never ending source of fun, sometimes I feel guilty at how you jump when you get poked.  It really isn't fair.  The cat has much more fun than the cat nip filled ball.

                  Joyful, fun, shares with the rest....

                  And the only ones squirming are the Weasels who are now having to face the wrath of the people they "weaseled".

                  have fun with that....

    Do the CIA ware boots?  And i read that they are  advising the rebels . We just had 9 guys killed in Afghanistan  by a guy we were training. I think its imperative that we stop the practice of   teaching and arming   other army's.

    Also  Qaddafi isn't  a target.  The one guy  that we know needs killing isn't in our sights . Our policy is flawed
