Other people...of course...not...you.

    Hell to the no...you should snatch up your slingshot and get your ass over there and put some muscle behind your hustle. NOW!!! What the hell are you waiting for?

    It seems the primary disagreement is that many people thought enforcing a no-fly zone meant...well...enforcing a no-fly zone, not launching air attacks against ground forces. Thats kinda different from a no-fly zone. In other words the UN wanted a bunch of jets flying around to show how relevant the UN was and somehow the Brits, French, and US took that to mean they had a license to take aggressive air to ground actions.

    Why the hell would anyone want that to be the case? I could understand if thats you're opinion, but to list the failure of western nations to respond to a crisis and act together has something desirable? What the ****.

    Anyway, any bickering in the coalition is normal, its what allies do. There was plenty of bickering about how to deal with Germany and Japan in WW2, how to deal with the USSR, the Gulf War, the Yugoslavia break up, the Afghan conflict, the Iraq War. Bickering is nothing new and it hardly means the alliance is going to break up.

    When did we give them $2 billion? If President Obama did this, there's a smoking gun. If not...just another example of American taxpayers' money being squandered.

    Gezz, do you conservatives never learn when it comes to FACTS?

    Their "facts" are Hannity sound bites.

    President Obama Finances Offshore Drilling in Brazil - WSJ.com

    last saturday:

    “We want to help you with the technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely. And when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers. At a time when we’ve been reminded how easily instability in other parts of the world can affect the price of oil, the United States could not be happier with the potential for a new, stable source of energy.” - White House Press Briefing, March 19th
