    No, I agreed with you that I think Obama should have gotten Congressional approval as well as UN approval. Obama is more of a war hawk than i would have liked in a president, but the only other viable choice was someone even more of a war hawk, so what are you gonna do?

    Do you think Congress should cut off funding for this endeavor until they've had a chance to make their decision on the matter? I will support you in that call if you like.

    Actually it does, though Wiki never mentioned the terrorism part. Perhaps they suffer from "Islamophobia" themselves and wer3 fearful to offend.

    you know when you stop and think about it, it's really sad that innovation and technology is driven by war. imagine the wonderful things we could create and achieve if war wasn't motivating us and peoples brains were used for something worthwhile.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Do you have a link as to which Christians you're referring to?

    You really don't know the meaning of many words, do you?

    Is it safe to say English is not your first language?

    The plain truth is that 0bama dithered while Libyans were fighting and dying and begging for help. I support the President on this one and was very glad to see the US air strikes on Gaddafi's ground units south of Benghazi. It's 11th hour and should have been done weeks ago. Gaddafi's tanks were literally on the doorstep.

    If a handful of Harriers can make a difference just imagine what 2 carrier air groups could have done three weeks ago. They are vulnerable in the desert. Heavy bombing of his ground forces will weaken them enough for the rebels to defeat them and drive out Gaddafi. Short of sending in large numbers of ground troops, which I do not favor, that is the best outcome for the actions we are taking. If the rebels fail and Gaddafi stays in power this will be for nothing.

    From a point about five miles from the northern entrance to Ajdabiya, rebels jumped into dozens of vehicles and made a massive push toward the city Monday when they heard jets in the air and the sounds of bombardment. But after about half a mile, the rebels came under fire from loyalist tank and mortar shelling and promptly turned back.

    Afterward, rebel commanders said they plan to wait for more allied airstrikes against Gaddafi’s forces before pushing forward again.

    The purpose for waiting was so that we do not create another whole round of terrorists by the way we've been waging wars unilaterally in the Middle East without UN approval.

    Yes, people die in revolutions and civil wars, is this the first you have heard about this?

    People die in traffic accidents also, Catawba, but few feel the necessity of pointing it out.

    What was your point in mentioning that people die in civil wars?
