    Try reading what was posted. If the US isn't the leader, the US shouldn't be in the game. Also, without the US, it's not a real NATO action, it's an improper expropriation of assets.

    Regardless, there was never any US interests being served by interfering in that civil war. Unless you're happy that the United States is now fighting on the side of al qeada even as the United States was shooting al qeada's head in the head, perhaps, even, while he was in the head?

    We have lots of bases empty and not that should be closed.
    Yeah, work on your grammar a little. The Mayor has no objections to closing unneeded assets if the defense needs projected over a reasonable period of time shows no expected use for the asset, or if refubishment of the asset exceeds it's expected utility.

    They had the same choice we always have, the lesser of the evils. It is that way in all place except the utopia of the Land of Snorkum.
    So they picked Morgoth instead?

    My exit physical chest xray showed the results in my lungs, the doctor told me to quit smoking.... When I told him I don't smoke, he asked me how long ago I quit. Told him I never started, then explained the second hand smoke situation.
    Thank you, smokers, for being selfish and ignorant....
    Go tell the gov to improve ventilation of their buildings.

    "That Americans face long-term energy delivery challenges and volatile energy prices is the failure of both Democrats and Republicans to fashion a workable energy policy. Energy policy was allowed to drift by both political parties despite its centrality to America’s domestic economy and to our nation’s security.

    It was permitted to drift despite the fact that virtually every American recession since the late 1940s has been preceded by spikes in oil prices. The American people need to know about this situation and be told as well that there are no easy or quick solutions to today’s energy problems."

    "Strong economic growths across the globe and new global demands for more energy have meant the end of sustained surplus capacity in hydrocarbon fuels and the beginning of capacity limitations. In fact, the world is currently precariously close to utilizing all of its available oil-production capacity, raising the chances of an oil-supply crisis with more substantial consequences then seen in three decades."


    "Natural gas is available to heat homes and run power plants in some parts of the United States only because prices soared over the winter to many times previous historic peaks. Gas markets dealt successfully with a supply shortage, but only at the cost of driving a few lower priority industrial users to close plants and lay off workers, and many to desert gas for fuels that were more polluting. If economic growth continues, price spikes and supply shortages could become widespread recurring events challenging expectations of free energy and making the United States appear more similar to a poor developing country."


    "As it is, national solutions alone cannot work. Politicians still speak of U.S. energy independence, while the United States is importing more than half of its oil supplies and may soon for the first time become reliant on sources outside North America for substantial amounts of natural gas."

    When you come up with something official that actually disputes my claim, feel free to post it. Out of date "position papers" don't cut it.

    Of course he is. Like a good little Dem, wars started by Dem presidents are just fine and dandy. I'm sure he was happy that Clinton took us into Bosnia, just as he's happy Obama put us into a third war in Libya.

    He's just doing as he's told.

    More than sufficient to debunk your unsubstantiated claim.
