    Obama Dismisses 'Fuss' About Libya Battle

    “We have engaged in a limited operation to help a lot of people against one of the worst tyrants in the world, somebody who nobody should want to defend,” Mr. Obama told reporters in a wide-ranging news conference in the White House’s East Room. “And this suddenly becomes the cause celebre for some folks in Congress? Come on.”

    “A lot of this fuss is politics,” he said.

    Chatter. Fuss. Do your homework.
    What's with this guy?

    Lots of bad guys in the world.. but he chooses Libya.. what did he just say a few days ago about drones being so great?? Yeah.. he finds his ways around getting Congressional approval (We The People).. cap and trade goes to EPA, Dream Act sneaks in through ICE.. now war is apparently not war that needs to go before Congress if there are no boots on the ground... bombing all over the place.. Yemen, now Somalia today... I know what's with this guy. He is so full of himself he does what he wants any way he has to do it. Total disrespect for We The People, his own Generals, he is answering to a different boss. High degree globalist, never lets his feet (ideology) touch the ground here in the USA if he can avoid it... I could go on all day, but that is as close as I can get to staying on topic..

    Right. To hell with those Iranians who tried to oppose that killer regime and are now either dead or in prison. Not even an encouraging word for them from Oblahblah.

    Correct. He passed on the war we should have fought, passed on taking those nuke sites down when we had the chance... (New here, not well versed in the rules of staying on topic yet.. mainly just reading and watching..)

    What?

    Iran would be a far more difficult war than Iraq and Afghanistan were. Not an engagement the United States wants at this period in our history.

    Libya is mostly a European interest. Obama is assisting them via NATO in a limited role because they did the same in Iraq and Afghanistan, even though Europeans outside of Britain had no vested interest in either territory.

    Point taken. But not even an encouraging word. Not even a rebuke of the regime. I think at that point in our history Obama still believed his own press and thought all "the one" had to do was meet Ahmadmanijad and he'd magically transform into a man of peace.

    Pray tell, how do you define globalism, and what is your problem with the given definition of that ideology?

    Funny thing about Iran is since 2006, unofficially it has been suggested that the CIA helps and funds a terrorist group that plots against Iran and helps the CIA to spy and understand Iran even more. Despite our limited role in Libya I still think we need to get out of there totally and to me, it seems as if though that will be the case in a few months.

    Re: Obama Dismisses 'Fuss' About Libya Battle

    My opposing U.S. military intervention aimed at regime change in Libya has nothing to do with seeking to 'defend' in any way one of the world's more brutal tyrants. It has strictly to do with the absence of critical U.S. interests or regional allies being threatened. Continuation of the Gadhafi dictatorship would not imperil critical U.S. interests or regional allies. On the global stage, the U.S. has far more important geopolitical matters to attend to and, in a looming era of fiscal consolidation, will need to learn to better prioritize. In the meantime, Iran continues to pursue its nuclear activities and maintains its push for regional preeminence. Iranian regional preeminence would pose a substantial threat to critical U.S. interests and key U.S. allies in the region.
