    Hmmmm!

    So Hillary was only deceiving Gadaffi when she said there would be no grounds troops. It was all just a trick to lull him into complacency!!

    The first casualty of war.

    There is an idea floating around of an opera based on the story of a blond woman of a certain age whose husband was the leader of a powerful nation, and when he was no longer able to serve his wife decided to take his place. The tentative title is "Hillary!" and Madonna is apparently in talks to play the title role.

    Your first link has nothing to do with the US attacking anyone.

    Your second link is weak as it cites state media and we all that Gaddafi would never lie, right?

    If someone sent 112 flying bombs into the USA, would you call it war?

    So, it is moral and wise to bomb, but evil and stupid to use ground troops?

    Iraq was all about oil, you say (despite the fact that oil was flowing just fine at the time), and this IS NOT about oil, even though we're experiencing bad price hikes due to the conflicts currently ongoing in the MidEast?

    If ground troops go, I'd oppose that.

    The UN authorized all kinds of things against Saddam, which he ignored, and authorized the use of force, which apparently didn't matter a fig to the Left THEN.


    The hypocrisy of some just amazes me.

    I support this action, btw.... should've been done three weeks ago without waiting for that corrupt and nearly useless body known as the United (cough cough!) Nations.

    Just making a point. Are you going to live by a double standard, too, or just make personal attacks?

    But do you support having the US rush into Bahrain to fight off Saudi Sunni troops who have come in to support the Sunni government against the protestors?

    Really don't understand how we pick and choose where to send our money.
    Perhaps we are in Libya due to Gaddafi being a more well known infamous celeb.

    This may be more about hating Gaddafi than really having any love for the protestors who months ago probably celebrated the Lockerbie bomber's release from prison.

    Re: U.S. Tomahawk Cruise Missiles Hit Targets in Libya

    A hard-core group of liberal House Democrats is questioning the constitutionality of U.S. missile strikes against Libya, with one lawmaker raising the prospect of impeachment during a Democratic Caucus conference call on Saturday.

    Reps. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Donna Edwards (Md.), Mike Capuano (Mass.), Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Rob Andrews (N.J.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) “all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president’s actions” during that call, said two Democratic lawmakers who took part.

    Saturday’s conference call was organized by Rep. John Larson (Conn.), chairman of the Democratic Caucus and the fourth-highest ranking party leader. Larson has called for Obama to seek congressional approval before committing the United States to any anti-Qadhafi military operation.

    “They consulted the Arab League. They consulted the United Nations. They did not consult the United States Congress,” one Democrat lawmaker said of the White House. “They’re creating wreckage, and they can’t obviate that by saying there are no boots on the ground. … There aren’t boots on the ground; there are Tomahawks in the air.”

    So Kucinich was being honest, big whoop
    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.
