    Is it remotely possible that Obama has been less than forthright in the degree of our involvement in the Libyan theater. Say it's not so.
    So, is this like the Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq? Did you forget how the GOP King was forthright with his comments concerning Iraq?

    I thought the Enterprise was decommisioned.

    If Sarkozy was willing to put French boots on the ground in Cote D'Ivoire for absolutely no good reason, then I'm positive NATO doesn't sweat a few helicopters hovering over Libya.

    Just saying.

    Yes, a combat arm would be a weapon a soldier carries, flies, drives, fires or operates. A support arm is what you might find on an office chair.

    Perhaps you want to know if I understand the difference between a truck carrying supplies for combat troops and the actual combat troops. If you think me ignorant on issues such as combat roles and combat support roles, you will soon be humbled. Feel free to act like a typical Army drone and challenge me however you like. You’ll need to wrap it up tonight though if you want answers because I go back to work in the morning and won’t be available to debate further for at least 2 months.

    Are you trying to make the case that the US’ role in Libya has only been logistical? If so, how do you explain the US F-15 pilot who was shot down in Libya or the US bombs and missiles that took out Libyan air defenses etc.? I just don’t understand your logic here.

    You need to change that political “lean” description from “very conservative” to “republican” because real conservatives have more respect for the Constitution than you are showing while republicans don’t really give a rip about the Constitution. Republicans and Democrats are both just as guilty of tearing up the Constitution when they are in power but Republicans like you are notoriously war mongering thugs who have never seen a war they didn’t like.


    Obama himself described his actions as unconstitutional, as did Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Harry Reid et al. Liberals tend to decry violations of the Constitution when they are out of power but when they are in power, they walk all over it. Republicans like you have a thirst for blood so you love every potential and real war there is. At least you are consistent in your desire to support war no matter what. Too bad you do it at the expense of the US Constitution though and are creating an imperialist executive branch in the process.

    Iran was on the verge of socializing its oil industry, which is why the CIA helped to overthrow the democratic government of the time.

    Anyone who threatens the oil gets destroyed. It's just that simple. There is no other reason why we are there.

    I think it is a bit naïve to say there is “no other reason” we are there. 911 comes to mind for starters.
