    Depends how you look at it. The US needs to push for more peace treaties with Israel.

    It's in the how that matters. Regime change, no. Through diplomacy and winning the arguement, sure. We're not rulers of the world. We're not the world police. And we can't force our every whim.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Let's see, when Libyan rebels were being defeated, and Qudaffi the duck was rattling cages saying that he would go door to door to kill his opposition, who did the rebels call for? Was it England, France, China? No, it was the US wasn't it now?

    Which means what? The Brotherhood is pro American?

    Gheeze Joe, sometimes, I swear..... The point was that you were making as far as I saw was that the US is not the world police force. However, when you really are honest about it, it is a dodge to use the UN as cover for sending American resources in to use against a nation state then say that 'oh it is a UN, or NATO mission'... We all know what that means, and that is that the US will be the standard bearer. But nice to see you aknowledging that the MB is really anti America....A bit at a time I suppose.

    Are we? I thought the UN and Nato were bombing. Am I wrong?
    Weak...As I explained above, putting these org's out there as the face of the mission only secures that American's will be running it regardless of what the liar n chief says. Tell me Joe, who is the Supreme commander of NATO? Do you know?

    The UN has no force of its own, but only that of its members. so, for the UN to act, it needs to use member nation forces. One mission the UN should have is to stop rulers from killing large numbers of its civilian population. One mission neither the UN or the US should have is regime change. I makes a great deal of difference if an action is a UN action and not simply a US action. And it makes a difference what the mission is.

    Now, this mission could be clearer. And it should be limited to merely stopping the killing of civilians. But regime change is up to the people of Libya and not the US or the UN. We are not police of the world, or rulers of the world, and should never see ourselfs as the ones who decides who rules any other country.

    NATO = the U.S. is handling it.

    We're doing the bombing, and we're footing the bill.

    As always.
