    Then you're either functionally illiterate or driven 100% by politics.

    Nice dodge.

    We're talking about 0bama's blatant hypocricy on the issue of the President using military force. Not what past Presidents have done.

    Considering the actual quote, one has to wave away the more obvious meaning of the words to reach the conclusion that the WH is "installing a democratic system" instead of the what the sentence structure actually dictates—the Libyan people are the installers of the "democratic system".

    Sentence diagramming FTW.
    I may be wrong.

And that is something we will never do. We don't have the will to start it or to carry it out over the generations necessary to achieve it. Hell, we've stopped making immigrants to this country adopt the American culture, so what makes anyone think we'd do it to someone else in another country!!

    Waht will happen is one of those false rebel presidents will just keep getting elected. And they'll ask for monetary support from the US and forgiveness of debts by the European countries. That will be the worst case scenario.

    Who will pay for that? Take a guess
    Nobody is suggesting that we want to change the Libyan's culture or establish a US style democracy there.

    That will be up to the Libyan people and as long as they are free and peaceful it's a very positive thing for the free world.

    Tyrants around the world with itchy trigger fingers are paying attention to the resolve of the free world and especially the US.

    Ahhhh.......no, 0bama's own statements require no clairification.

    Senator/Candidate 0bama would be opposed to what President 0bama is doing today.

And no...we didnt 'defeat' global terrorism, that doesnt make the reality that Saddam supported global terrorism less true. And the claim re WMDS was that Iraq refused to comply with UN resolutions demanding an accounting of their WMDs...something we still dont have. The UN passed 17 separate resolutions demanding Iraq state where the chemical weapons are that were cataloged post GW1. Weapons everyone knew or at least believed he posessed...EVERYONE...including every elected democrat long before Bush2. Three primary reasons...agree with them or disagree...but thats what was given. Genocide was used by Clinton and now Obama as their primary motivation for staking us to war against the Serbs and now Libya. Its apparently a relevant reason...when it is a democrat taking us to war.
    genocide was also the reason bush gave us. and not EVERYONE not me.
