    The British should get along with France and convince the other European countries that their cause is just, if they can, and America can go its own way.

    European countries sit on the sidelines getting rich, like the Swiss and Germans, while the American people pick up the tab for policing the world.

    For decades the Europeans have been critical of American foreign policy so its well past time they had a little bit more involvement themselves. Americans are deeply in debt, it's getting worse, and still they are expected to handle every two bit dictator the world throws up at them. Let there be a New World Disorder and let each hemisphere sort out its own problems. The American people should be sick of it by now and start looking after their own interests.

    Is the war over already and I missed it? Why would you not want Congress to vote whether we continue to support the NATO action?

    Those that wish to know the truth, that the coalition did not have authority under the UN for our invasion. But who really cares about the truth in this country, the truth is only important to the British right?

    Frankly (no pun intended), I think it's about time. All the bitching about the US the Europeans do, they need to put up or shut up. I'm tired of our military protecting whiners.

    Ah, so America should be bombing the ever loving hell out of people?

    That's the way you like it?

    Like it or not America will take the leading role....As a General said yesterday on one of the shows, America's military doesn't subordinate itself to anyone.

    You were talking about the British end of things regarding Iraq and that has limited interest for others. The Americans did not have the same problem regarding Iraq.

    The British were obvious turncoats on Libya however, were unsteady Allies in Iraq, and its clear that their long term interests lie in Europe.

    I don't think we should continue the pretense that we are friends or Allies beyond what we actually are. Britain, France, Germany and the Swiss should act in their own best interest and the Americans in theirs. There is no good reason, historically or otherwise, why the Americans should be in North Africa defending European interests while most of Europe sits on the sidelines. The Mid East should remain a European problem and the Americans would be better off defending their own territory and borders.

    And so you should be.

    Americans spend billions getting rid of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, introduce democracy there for the first time in its violent history, lose thousands of the best people the country has to offer, and are still getting complaints that you did it without any third party's permission??

    What the hell is that all about?

    Americans should exercise their sovereignty and decide alone whether they are going to get involved in any other country and bugger what the UN or the Europeans say.

    I can't believe they have listened to them this far or that they need some sort of 'consensus' to put American lives on the line.

    Then what's this 'consensus' thing all about, J-mac?
