    Ok, I was trying to prove the point humorously, but look at it this way, the tomahawk missiles have a range of 2,500 km's, that covers most of Afghanistan (from the closest point, just east of Qushm Island in the Gulf of Oman), it travels at 880km/h, and the closest Afghanistan gets to the ocean is roughly 500 km's, so it'll take it 3/4 of an hour just to cross into Afghan airspace, by the time it reaches where it needs to go, the Taliban would have been shot or have buggered off. Submarines armed with Tomahawk missiles are completely useless in the Afghan war.

Or, when I stuck my dick in my intern's/apprentice's mouth it wasn't sex. It's getting to the point we can start filing your claims in the "I never had sex with that woman" Dept.

    You learned well my friend, but unfortunately it was a bad school to go to.

    We are at war with Libya. Even NPR had War in their title and changed it; perhaps someone from DC called them to tell them to knock it off or their funding will be cut from the Left and Right! For what use is NPR if they don't support the home team.

    Perhaps we can find compromise. We won't call it "war". We will call it "Waging an Aggressive Response". I'll use the acronym so I don't have to write it out in full all the time. So, Obama has declared WAR against Libya. Better?

    The first headline is guaranteed to send the Left in a full fledged Tizzy... ROTFLOL...

    That's a comment worthy of a fifteen year old. The Constitution should not be violated becuase the President has to save face with the French.

    No vital US interests was threatened in Libya until the US commenced bombing raids in Libya today. We had nothing to win, and now we still have nothing to win but we've already lost sixty million dollars and counting, to name just one thing, and now we're enaged in three wars simultaneously, only one of which was justifiable.

    Tomahawks have their place and should not be wasted for trivial purposes in a nation bearing no interests vital to the security of the United States.

    The US military WAS NOT founded nor funded to interfere in minor internal squabbles of irrelevant minor nations, and Libya has never been, in it's entire history, anything but a minor pain in the ass. If France wants to play hero in Libya, fine. There's no reason the United States should jump in and help them out once again. That's how we got dragged into Vietnam.

    Ok, but Tomahawks are not needed to defend troops in Afghanistan.

    Yeah, but that's for slicing up the food, not defending yourself.

    For now. They're certainly not needed to interfere in a civil war in a nation we don't give a crap about.

    If this is the right decision today then it was the right decision weeks ago when the rebels still controlled most of Libya. However, now that the US and our allies are finally acting I support the President and his efforts. I hope it isn’t too late.

    What happened to “Gaddafi must leave”? UN 1973 doesn’t mention it.

    I have lots of problems with the initial stages and especially the lack of US attacks against Gaddafi’s ground forces. Perhaps that is coming. The lack of US carriers in the Med is astounding.

    So far we have attacked Quacky’s air defense. The one weapons system he’s not using against the rebels. This is of course necessary to establish a NFZ but it isn’t helping the people fighting in Benghazi right now.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.
