    So any time there's a protest and somebody gets shot, we should bomb that country?

    Doesn't it say somewhere that violence begets violence?

    So basically, Obama is saying we are doing this because the United Nations told us to.

    How pathetic.

    Are you advocating that we should have launched air attacks against Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Bahrain? Should we be imposing no fly zones and pressing for more severe UN sanctions against China and North Korea? It just seems rather selective were we are justifying the use of force.

    I dont know about how this could have ended 'peacefully'. Those 'rebels' we are supporting actually seem pretty well armed.

    That's a cop-out answer. Obama knows damn well that the UN wouldn't have requested such a thing unless the US supported it.

    When has that every hapened? Not Iraq, Saddam was killing his own people for years and years. Not Rwanada, we never went. Not the Yugoslavian break up, that took years as well.

    What Moore is doing is speaking out. What he and others like myself are doing in speaking out against the war. For example, when I talk to my friends about politics, I go and tell them why we shouldn't be in Libya. We are speaking out, not because we dislike Obama (some are against the war in Libya only because of that), but rather because we truly think that Libya should not be bombed.

    There are actually terrorist elements among the Libyan rebels.

    Re: Doubts Mount on Libya War

    Why is Obama STILL refusing to articulate our mission in Libya to the American people? Why can't he bring himself to say that our goal is the removal of Gaddafi's regime? No one believes him when he says that we aren't after Gaddafi, and Obama knows this perfectly well. The US can bomb Gaddafi's troops, provide military support to the rebels, publicly call for Gaddafi to leave, attack his compound, and state that Libya needs a democratic transition...but is Obama trying to remove Gaddafi from power? Why no, nothing could be further from his mind!

    BP has billions invested in Libya. Maybe that has something to do with selection?
