The hypocrisy is staggering.

We need to GTFO of Libya.  We have nothing to do with Libya and we can’t afford to get involved in their internal struggle.  Libya has a history of American Hatred, so they don’t even want our help and they certainly don’t deserve it.  As much as I don’t like that crack-pot over there… he’s over there and has made no threats against the USA.

But what I find most repugnant, is the hypocrisy of this administration.

“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch. It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action.”
-Barack Obama, December 20, 2007

So tell me… Where does Obama get off doing this?  In his own words, these actions are wrong.  If this was Bush doing this… Bush would be the most vile and despicable person in history.  But Barry gets a pass… even if his excuse for doing this mirrors Bush’s reason for Iraq.

MARCH 19, 2011
OBAMA: ‘Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world’… 

MARCH 19, 2003
BUSH: ‘American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the… world from grave danger’…

I don’t know… maybe I’m just not nuanced in geopolitical matters… I mean, I only took a semester of it in college so I am no expert by any means.  But I do know the difference between right and wrong.  And being in Libya is flat out wrong.  We need to GTFO.

Wait… this isn’t a WAR… It’s a Kenetic Military Action.  Oh, well then.  Never mind.

  1. What’s missing in many of the media reports is that the “rebels” are likely Al keida and we, the United States of America, could very well be fighting the wrong people. I don’t agree with a country that has killed our Marines and have taken down jumbo jets (Pan Am flt 103) in the name of terrorism. Obama & his administration has gotten the largest “pass” in American history that could quite possibly do a lot more damage for us in the Arab world than anything else in recent history. Obama is really going for the wrong type of legacy.

  2. I gotta disagree with you a bit here, George. The Libyan rebels want our help. In fact they seem to want us to take Tripoli for them. They’re disorganized and largely outgunned. I really don’t see these guys as al-Qaeda. I’m sure there are more fundamentalist elements within the rebel groups, but they’re not “Islamofacist socialists” or whatever Fox News is labeling them now.

    One thing’s for sure though, they wouldn’t have lasted without our help. Qaddaf and his mercs were poised to take Benghazi when we sprayed Tomahawks at them. The rebels don’t have the strength to win and if we leave, they’ll almost certainly be crushed. We’re stuck.

    Obama tried to start this and hand it off to NATO, but none of them want it. Gen. Ham has command on the ground, but the political situation is a cluster*&^%. Barry’s trying to play this “reluctant warrior” nonsense but is quickly becoming known to the Europeans as “The Great Vacillator.” First he *just* wants to create a no-fly zone, then he says it’s U.S. policy that Qaddafi is removed–but we still want to minimize military force. It’s absolutely absurd.

    1. Supposedly, 112.

      At a cost each of $1.5million+

      But, hey! It’s the humanitarian thing to do.

  3. So, France gets involved in a country, then asks for our help and we give it. Didn’t we do this about 60 years ago? Some little country in Southeast Asia.

  4. This action is about enforcing ELF’s petroleum contracts on behalf of France.

    We should have demanded cash or quid pro quo up front.

    Obama is such a useless tool.

  5. So, if “War” has become “Kinetic Military Action”, does that make our “Warriors” into “Kinetic Military Action Figures”?

    1. Good one. Since an F-15 is already down, I can’t help but worry about the first American casualty of this silliness.

      Mr. President, why Libya, why now, WTF are you thinking you numbnuts? Are we going into Syria next? What about Egypt? Darfur, Yemen, Tunisia?

      Fack all this Libya crap, let’s go into Israel and help them fight back the goat f-ers from Hamas. A few AWACs and strike aircraft and cruise missiles would make a real difference to the world that matters to me. I don’t want peace in the ME, I want dead Islamonutball terrorists wherever they are.

      Our President is smoking crack again, what a total fool.

    1. Well, it wasn’t too hard to call that one. Al Qaeda (I can’t believe I spelled it wrong the first time…) didn’t condemn any US action against Libya, wonder why? Maybe because we were actually fighting FOR them instead of against them. It’s hard to pick a bigger evil, Al Qaeda or Momar Kadaffi…but why even choose to begin with? We have NO BUSINESS in Libya and I’m going to say it again, it’s going to cause more harm than good for the USA than if we just sat back and let NATO take the reins from the beginning. We are not Team America World Police.

  6. One of the few Leftist pundits I’ve come to begrudgingly respect — a former U.S. Army Ranger, Special Forces Medical Sergeant and SFOD-D Operator turned Marxist, Feminist and Radical Reborn Christian, Stan Goff — has said it for years:

    The most dangerous threat to our country is the expansionist Neo-Liberal and Neo-Conservative agenda.

    The U.S. needs a literal, guaranteed “Pax Americana” where we say “FRICK ALL” to the world and concentrate exclusively on internal degradations and corruptions.
