    Doesn't matter how he responds or when he responds - they stopped taking us seriously the moment Obama's ass was put in the Oval Office.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Sense - you're not making any.

    Of course you think your rhetoric is witty or even intelligble, but everyone knows that it was Bush who no one could take seriously.

    Except he's already did both those things and nothing he could do could expediate the process of helping Japan.

    But yeah, don't let logic and reason get in the way of your drivel.

    He doesn't have to say what the plan is or even really have one yet, but try to look less like a weak kneed coward and more like the leader of the free world.

    Obama is an embarrassment.

    Very well said, so true.

(If he was worried about what other countries would think, he could have picked up the phone.) Very strange.

    I agree 100%

    As a response to the countless Obama bashings already done in this thread, that have almost nothing to do with the actual topic of the thread.

    Of course, you probably believe Obama playing golf when its 3 AM in Japan is relevant to his remarks on Libya.

    It makes strategic sense if you think about it from a foreigners point of view.

    As soon as American boots hit the ground, it's an occupation. That gives the whackos in caves ammo to feed their followers to recruit people to try to kill us. As long as its American bombs and not boots, nobody can call it an "occupation."
    Ghostbusters?

    I understand that as soon as our boots hit the ground it's an occupation. But why even address the issue? We're participating in and helping to coordinate a no-fly zone. Period.

    No, that is not occupation... Occupation is territory where we establish military authority.
