I posted this on Facebook this morning:
How come we are not bombing the shit out of Libya for murdering our Ambassador? How come we are not doing anything about this? Why is our President setting America up as the kid that anyone on the playground can pick on?
Fuck that. America should be FEARED. Americans around the world should cause a wake of fear and caution as they walk around because everyone knows that if you fuck with an American, we will saturate your world with pain and despair. You will show America respect or we will take it from you.
Our President is such a pussy he is putting every American at risk instead of protecting us like the Commander And Chief is supposed to do.
My anger has not subsided. In fact, it’s only gotten worse. Because instead of our President actually doing anything about this, he has Apologized To The Murderers and Terrorists! WHAT THE FUCK, OVER? WHAT THE FUCK?
One of my young sons learned of this attack, the murder of our Ambassador, the removing of our the US Flag… He observed that “the Libyans have in effect declared War on America.” My KID sees this… Why can’t our damned President? Apologizing to Murderers? When did we start apologizing to evil?
In Iraq, we are fighting Al-Qaeda. In Afganistan, we are fighting Al-Qaeda and Taliban. But in Libya, we are Al-Qaeda’s Air Force and our Administration wants to arm them?
While the whole time the Administration wants to disarm us and keep an eye on us because we are the ones that are the potential threat. I’m under the impression that our current administration is goofier than Keystone Cops.
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.

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.
The violence in Libya is horrid and unfortunate… and it saddens anyone with even a small strain of humanity that a government would attack its own people. Because of this, there has been talk of a US intervention. This is a bad idea.
