-George W. Bush, describing people who protested the Iraq WarIt's fine to hate America if you want, because fortunately you live in a country that allows you to hate it. But making **** up on one hand while ignoring inconvenient realities on the other serve only to have others brush you off as crackpots.
NATO has been bombing Bab al-Azizyah for months.Bottom line, Khadaffi's compound is now in rebel control, and according to NATO, no NATO bombs or planes have been used in the seige of Tripoli.
Well as long as they find some Italian dude to parade in front of the cameras, I guess Obama is off the hook for his war of choice.Mind you, NATO's spokespeople on the Libyan operation are European, not American.
I have no problem with them rebelling and overthrowing Gaddafi on their own if that's what they want to do. I have a problem with the United States deciding that it is going to determine who should be in power in Libya and then deposing the existing government with military force, under the guise of saving lives.The Libyan people began this revolution on their own, buoyed by the success of Tunisia and Egypt. America had nothing to do with any of these insurrections, despite some of the ludicrous claims made in this thread. Sheesh. Just... sheesh.
