    I'm with you brother, let's stop bombing countries everywhere. And let's stop our military occupations around the globe. Will save us a ****load of money. Bring 'em all home!

    Sure let's put 'em to work rebuilding our country instead of others that we blow up.

    Go look in the mirror. But first, get a sticker that says "sucker" and put it on your forehead. THEN go look in the mirror.

    Bush did the same thing. He even went to Congress.

    The thing is that is $131.1 Million and does not include the cost of fuel and the bombs used to attack ground targets which has got to be way into the Millions of Dollars. The laser guidance package Production unit cost, Air Force: $23700. Navy: $26100 this is on top of the cost of the bombs these are added to.

    Frankly we can't afford this with no chance of return on investment. Libya is not in the top 20 nations we get oil from, so even with luck we get no benefit there.

    I have to believe it would have been more efficient to put a hit on Gadhafi.
    Good points all Councilman but IMO the return is another free and peaceful country in the world community.

    If we fail in Libya, and Gaddafi stays or jihadis take over, it was still worth the effort IMO.

    Hopefully the Libyan people will want to end the tyranical nature of their government in favor of democratic process of their choosing.
