    Here is what I find interesting - I see righties taking al-Jazeera as the gospel truth. But when we were in Iraq, during the Bush administration, they exploded when links to al-Jazeera were posted, and asked why we would believe a slanted organization that sides with terrorists. Councilman put this very succinctly, with his tongue-in-cheek statement. I don't know if anybody else got the humor in what he posted, but I sure did. Nice one, Councilman. LOL.

    Seriously, though, al-Jazeera has reported boots on the ground. Are they American boots? That is the question. If they are boots of another nation, which they seem to be, then what does that have to do with Obama?

    What I find most heartening in this thread is that some of our most vocal righties have found something other than FOX News to accept as a reliable source, and it is al-Jazeera. Why do they hate our troops?

    Anyone who believes anything Obama says is a damn fool. Obama is without any doubt the most worthless piece of trash ever.

    He's on par with Bush... Maybe slightly worse in ways.

    Really though, if you loves bush you should love Obama... If you love Obama and hated bush, it's only because you thought Bush did not do enough.

    I think its stupid that there are laws preventing the assasination of world leaders. Some of the most vile of regimes where toppled with the killing of the dictator.

    Every national leader should be free to kill another national leader so long as they are prepared for the consequences of their actions.

    Now stop pussying around with me NATO and just bomb the **** out of every destination that Muammer may be.

    No, and I believe that I heard some time ago that the Brits and French were not ruling out sending in forces.

    The one thing glaring to me is that we, and when I say we I mean NATO, because that IS the US largely, are doing what most liberal whiners usually carry on about meddling in others affairs and such.

    I think we need to get back to a more basic foreign policy. And become more self sufficient as a nation.
