    I would very much like to see the UN regain it's legitimacy. The world needs an organization like the UN used to be.
    Me too, and our support of the UN helps in that effort.

    Many times there was a choice between so-and-so and another communist state.

    The rebels in Libya are far from an ideal ally but if they win and Libya becomes free to decide their own system of government its a win-win.

    Should the rebels win and Libya is one day ruled by another tyrant people will say we removed Gaddafi and supported tyrants and dictators.

    Man, you sure about that?

    Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi's regime.

    They killed Americans in Iraq, now Obama is going to arm them? How does this even come close to making sense.

    I've read the reports about al-Qaeda. Even the one where they pilfered SAM-7's and other stuff from a Libyan arsenal.

    This is where 0bama's leadership is going to be tested. He needs to insit the rebels weed out the jihadis in their midst.

    If jihadis gain control in Libya this will be for nothing.

    Yeah, he's not going to do that, hell Obama is afraid to even say we are involved much less show any leadership.

    Perhaps you should mention which Administration was responsible and name these dictators. Would you have had the the US go to war to eliminate all dictatorships? Was there ever a case of choosing one more benign dictator over another who was far worse?

    His performance has been less than inspiring so far no doubt. His speech was late and tepid.

    Hillary is in/going to London to meet with rebel leaders this week and hopefully she will make it quite clear we have no intention of supporting jihadis.
    I don't believe that's 0bama's intention.

    I'm willing to give him some room on this one. After all, he's a community organizer by trade.

    But what evidence is there that they are not all Islamists in Libya, Egypt, and throughout the ME?

    It seems to me that we are just guessing on the side of optimism.
