    If those missiles waste a few civilians, will it still be a humanitarian mission?

    Just thought of something: who thinks there will be the biggest media blackout since WW2 during this operation?

    Yep... I have stated on here several times that it was an act of treason and political expediency.

    After 911 the Libs realized how weak they looked on national security after decades of hostility. So they vote to send troops, and in the senate the Libs asked for and got a 2nd meaningless vote. Then when things got tough and the troops needed their support the most, they turned their backs, grabbed their daggers and slashed away... another move of raw political expediency.

    That constitutes one of the most sickening chapters in American history. And people wonder why I have a low threshold of tolerance for these people and their lying deceitful ways.

    Clearly I not only believe that, but I rationally think that - it is not just a belief. There is ample evidence which you ignore just to feed your view of the world. We didn't go for oil, we didn't go for creating a puppet government nor to establish permanent bases. Crucial question: why did we go?

    Since I obviously support what we did, you are clearly calling me a fool. I want an apology.

    WMDs...revenge and future oil company profits. Had McCain won we would have permanant bases in Iraq. He even said so.
    Only a complete fool believes the invasion of Iraq wasn't a costly mistake and a no win situation for the US.

    The equipment and ordnance being used in Libya is free, or something? Oh, wait, the stimulus package paid for it, huh?


    We replaced one corrupt regime with one just as corrupt and trained their army to control their civilians. Not only that we ended up killing thousands of innocent civilians in the process. Iraq was a complete waste of lives and resources. It never was never an humanitarian mission.
    This fight is only twelves hours old, so don't speak too soon.



    One would have to be a total fool to believe that. You don't bomb power plants, bridges and other infrastructure in a humanitarian mission.
    Do you know how to stop an army from crossing a river? Blow up the bridge.

    Do you know how to cripple a command center's communications, thereby denying it the ability to command and control it's forces? You kill the electricity.

    Do you know what happens when you launch a 750 pounder into an ADA position that is sitting on the roof of a building? You destroy the building.

    Don't worry, that's all going to happen here, too.

    We aren't killing unarmed civilians. Do I really need to point that out?
