    Nobody can possibly know everything, That is what advisors are for.

    Someone who has a good decision making ability. That's where Obama is sorely lacking.

    huh? how could a commercial aircraft, expected to kill a president, ever get past one of our aircraft carriers and lived to chuckle about it again?

    No it's not just oil. No one on either side should seek to simplify anything or reduce it to any one reason. oil certainly plays a role, as does the desire to have a base close to Iran, and maybe even some misguided idea of spreading freedom. None of which work as a justification for invading another country.

    You guys think, the rebels are disorganized?

    What about Nato allies???....British military officers will be sent to Libya to advise rebels fighting Gaddafi's forces, but PM Cameron insists that Britain will not send ground forces into Libya but conceded the limits set by the UN resolution were making the campaign more difficult then Axel Poniatowski, chairman of France's foreign affairs committee, warned the Nato campaign could become bogged down unless allies put boots on the ground

    Its one big cluster**** with no way out and Obama is in the middle

    Seriously? You really don't understand this? I wasn't suggesting the aircraft was going to attack our fleet or fly all the way to the US.

    Commercial aircraft came and went out of Baghdad even with a NFZ.

    How are we supposed to stop a terrorist getting on a plane and flying out of Iraq?

    Have we been attacked by any plane flying out of Bagdad? Iran? Afghanistan? So while I know there is an issue about airport security, a minor one, the fact is we are not one bit safer for invading any country. It's a false premise, a false choice, and a false argument. Invading does nothing to fight terrorism or make us safer.

    Tens of thousands of dead jihadis has made us safer.

    And once again you have deliberately ignored a very simple point a child could understand.

    It isn't the plane Boo. It's the terrorists on it who intend to do us harm. Once they fly out of Iraq they can go anywhere they want by plane, boat or train.

    It's unbelieveable how dishonest you are.
