    Actually one of the reasons we have been more chummy with Libya is because they abandoned their secret nuclear program and made it entirely open and transparent. A state where nuclear weapons, technology, and know-how flood the world is NOT a scenario anyone wants to see.

    Trying to compare them does defy the imagination. If it does, what took the Obaminator so long to get off the pot?

    Saddam:

    1. Started a war, lost it and agreed to disarm.
    2. Attempted to assasinate a US President.
    3. Was shooting at our planes in the NFZ with regularity. A hostile act from someone who should have been cooperating.
    3. Had WMD and used them.
    4. Was not transparent in any manner with the UN Inspecteurs de la Sortie. Read Blix's testimony before the war started. He spells it out.
    5. Kicked out Inspecteurs.
    6. Was killing 100 of his own people on average per day for years, and Post Gulf War 1, cleansed a town for its uprising.
    7. There were 17 UN Resolutions in 12-years, and still Saddam kept waving with his middle finger.
    8. Every ally, and all the Democrat Leadership warned about Saddam's WMD... before Bush 43 was elected.


    Gaddafi Duck:
    1. Has killed his own people in an attempt to retain control.


    You're right, there really is no comparison.

    Liblady: If you recall, the press didn't like Bush giving multiple reasons to go into Iraq... WMD was one, and serious. Read Blix's report before we went in. It's chilling if you understand what WMD and weponized WMD can do.

    Re: U.S. Seeks UN Resolution Authorizing Strikes on Libya

    For all those liberals who whined that there was no security council authorization for Iraq (though in reality, there was), there is now clear and unambiguos UNSC authorization for action in the air regarding Libya... I wonder what argument they will concoct now?

    I support a no-fly zone... it was needed at least two weeks ago... it may now be too late...

    One poster posited that the rebels don't want this, where do you get that from? I have seen far more evidence that the opposite is true, but Kane may blame that on the programming we get from the media... lol

    Well know UN have decided on a no fly zone. Then it comes to Iraq USA can be extremly thankfull that the sanction and weapon incpection worked very well. Else wmd would have been in the hand of terrorists and insurgents and used to kill Americand. Because the Iraq war was a total catastrophe. Becuase USA didn't know their the wmd that they said existed was located. They didn't either have the manpower to secure weapon site. So many weapon site was plundred and the weapon later used by terrorist and insurgents. So if Bush had been correct that Iraq had a lot of wmd those wmd had ended up in the wrong hands. So thank UN for that Iraq war didn't become more of a catastrophe it became.

    According to what I am reading, Britain, France, and some Arab countries.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
