    Libya is a tribal society and the tribes have been at odds forever. There were no allied forces on the ground and while NATO conducted an air campaign against Libyan military, the fighting on the ground was by Libyan rebels. Bottom line, Libya would be a much better place in the world community had Gadaffi remained in power and the country not seized by Isalmofascists.

    I could care less.

    No one is invading America anytime soon, that is all that matters.

    Walk softly and carry a big stick...and Obama carries the most powerful stick in world history. Only an insecure egotist needs him to strut around like a babbling rooster.
    Let me take a stab at this. Read the title of the thread and ask yourself one question. Why did you post on it to say who cares?

    I can tell you why it matters. We live in a global economy and every nation has an impact, large or small on the world economy. When oil fields are seized or destroyed anywhere in the world, it affects oil prices, which affects food prices which affects world hunger. If you are so short sighted to believe that international relations and foreign policy only affects wether or not we are attacked, you could work in Obama's State Department.

    We'll of course Libya would be better off with Gaddafi in power, as would Iraq with Hussein, Egypt with Mubarak, and Syria with Assad, that's a given. But Gaddafi would not have been toppled without US intervention, period!

Thanks to Russia and China, that was avoided.
    Understand this, it doesn't matter to me how many times you repeat yourself. I don't believe that Obama would do anything other than threaten the use of force to use as a negotiation tactic. If force is ever used, it would have been the weak use of force currently employed against ISIS or a continuation of the drone wars Obama has used from the Philippines to Yemen and Somalia.

    Regardless of meaningless UN proclamations, Obama has no stomach for the initiation of the use of ground forces. Russia was an excuse, not a reason, but Russia came out looking stronger as a result and they are emboldened in the Middle East as a result.

    I've said before, and on this we can agree. The Middle East would be a much better place if Bush hadn't removed Hussein and Obama hadn't helped in the removal of Gaddafi, Mubarak and had supported Hadi. Many Middle Eastern countries are still tribal and as far as I'm concerned need strong men or tyrants to control the tibes.
