    If we go into Libya, I wonder if the 'no blood for oil' people will come out and protest, hanging Obama in effigy, burning his photo, calling him Hitler, etc., like they did for Bush? I think not.

    Also, if the Obama administration goes into Libya without UN authorization, what will the general reaction be here in the states?
    “The Obama administration said it would not act without Security Council authorization …”

    The FOX News story says the Obama administration wouldn't act without authorization which BTW it's not going to get because Russia and China will delay the question until it's moot.

    It's so that Obama can say "I tried".

    He knows the Russians and Chinese will Veto the resolution.

    I think the difference in this case is we actually would be greeted as liberators.

    But since FOX NEWS is full of liars and such, shouldn't we take that as a lie too? Or do we just accept as lies what we 'want' to accept as lies?

    The major difference is that we went into Iraq as a preemptive attack because of poor intelligence that said that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction.

    But I still don't know on what basis we have to go in. I mean, it's not our war. Either we are the world police and we stop regimes like this, or we are not, and we stay the hell out. ]Well, either way I support our troops!
    And the bolded part makes sense how?

    No matter what decision is made by the CNC, I stand behind our men and women in uniform. Maybe you should try that, sometime.
