    Admit it. You hadn't even heard of him until a week ago. None of you had. Useful idiots can always be found apologizing for the one term Marxist president Obama.

    If the US is going to intervene in other countries, this is exactly the type of place and situation where we can do a lot of good for very little cost. I'd much rather be involved here than in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and Libya.
    In other words you prefer to use the military for frivolous reasons instead of defending or furthering US national security interests.

    Why aren't you calling for us to be in every nation where kittens have been harmed by bad guys?

    Yet another war we are going to be engaged in, ahem what is the direct threat again? Oh yea, who's paying for it both in blood and treasure, the American family who is already tapped out and tapped out for the next generation. This country can ill afford any gallivanting on white horse all around the world.

So destroying them doesn't exactly help "another pack of assholes gain more power," it just helps secure the area.
    Given your train of thought should the one term Marxist president Obama send one hundred US special forces to south central Los Angeles?

    To be fair, even the bush Admin knew that they couldn't sell the war w/o the WMD threat. So to point out that the main reason we went to war was not as it seemed is actually a valid and potent critique. They literally had a meeting and realized that they couldn't get us to go to war w/o that threat.
    Your response that there were other lesser reasons which would not have motivated us to war by themselves does not lessen the power of critique about the main selling point of the war which motivated people to agree to the war.
    I may be wrong.

    You have yet to provide hard evidence that President Obama is a Marxist.

He specifically stated Saddam's abuse of Iraq citizens, the very reason obama is sending troops to Africa to take sides in a civil war. A move you libs fully support. Your hypocrisy is staggering in it's scope.
    I focus on WMDs and al Qaeda because those were the two justifications the Bush admin emphasized before the Iraq invasion. The other reasons were just cushion justifications that he knew would not be enough to go to war with right after 9/11. The rest of your post is just unsubstantiated, emotional claims about a person you don't know.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I certainly had. Joseph Kony has been one of Africa's most notorious murderers for years. Just because YOU were ignorant about the issue doesn't mean that everyone else was.

    Useful idiots can always be found apologizing for the one term Marxist president Obama.
    It doesn't have anything to do with Obama. It has to do with being able to stop a disgusting band of butchers from wreaking havoc on innocent people, at very little cost.

    Why do you think hard evidence is necessary? What would you consider hard evidence? Supporters of the Marxist president are unlikely to find any evidence convincing. Yet, what would a Marxist do to the US that this one term president has not done or said he intends to do?
