    Libya was already in Chad, because they were helping in the Civil War before Gaddafi was in power.

    Just the same, there were some loose threads that ended up involving Libya. It wasn't as if there was no reason.

    The only thing that involved Libya was Qadafi's imperial ambition.

    He had some first line Soviet aircraft and the Libyan armored columns destroyed by the Chadians included high end Warsaw Pact vehicles.

    I understand. Truth is hard to defend because it takes serious thought and steadfastness. Propaganda is easy because it isn’t anchored in truth, which takes serious thought, steadfastness and way more work than a propagandist is willing to put in.

    When your propaganda tour is finished and you have time for the real world, look me up.
    You lied about my position, why would I continue with you.

    Lmao, legitimate operation. That's just absolutely disgusting. These operations violate the sovereignty of nations borders, they violate international law, they violate ethics, morals and common sense. The war on terror is a shame and you're buying it. Riot police disperse protesters here too! What ****ing universe do you dwell in. The lengths you go to prop up failed and corrupt US foreign policy is maddening. The only hope is that our influence and military power continues to decline until we can no longer menace the rest of the world.

    Hilarious isn't it. Everybody else gets accused of doing exactly what the US does, perpetually.

    Factual error is only inadvertently hilarious.

    The sovereignty of nations that allow enemies of the US to fester within their own borders? So sue us.

    they violate international law
    International law guarantees every member state the right to self-defense

    Not with snipers.

    It's really no less maddening than the constant stream of nonsense you spew to attack any and all US foreign policy. While I am perfectly content with criticizing military action when I see it as unjust or useless (Vietnam, Dominican Republic, WWI), I have never seen you defend any war of any kind taken part in by a Western nation, even the obvious case of just war that was WWII. In the meanwhile, you always apologize for and explain away the actions of anti-Western dictatorships and autocracies.
