    Re: Do you support America's intervention in Libya?

    Nope I don't support it. The humanitarian reason is a farce. Syria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Zimbabwe, Egypt, and many other oppressed people apparently are not worthy of our benevolent freedom fighters and that's because they already have our puppets in power or they do not have enough valuable resources available for us to kill for. I'm more likely to send my own money through charity to help the Libyan freedom fighter than to support this intervention (except for the forced support my government requires).

    Yes I supported us joining NATO to help protect the Libyan people, and I also agree that it is time now to withdraw and let NATO with the Arab states take it from here.

    Not strictly true. FDR was engaged in an illegal war in the Atlantic against German u-boats in the summer of 1941.

    Laudable, but misguided in this instance. There's no defining US interest being served, and at the present time no dead American servicemen in Libya. It's an excellent time to impeach Obama and get out of Libya.

    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was formed to protect the North Atlantic democracies from any Soviet agression.

    That France decided to make a military play, knowing full well how effective France is at military effort, does not make the silly notion of interfering in Libya's civil war a "NATO" mission. No member of NATO had been attacked to prompt a NATO response. This was France deciding to do what France should have done unilaterally in Bosnia, but did not.

    This is not an American fight, it is not a NATO fight, it's a fight we need to get out of before any American servicemen get injured or killed.

    NATO's main mission has always been to provide a peacekeeping force that acts on the collective will of the member nations. It was created to provide a democratic alternative to rogue nations striking out on their own. If it can be made to work more effectively than it has in the past, I think it is much preferable to us spending ourselves in to bankruptsy with continues multiple wars.

    I am glad to see that NATO has agreed to takeover. We've done our part in the effort to protect the people from genocide, I say leave the rest to NATO.

    Re: Do you support America's intervention in Libya?

    No I do not, Im against all types of military adventurism. Wars should only be fought in defense, its not the job the US to police the world and hunt every scumbag despot on the planet. Gaddafi has to be taken down by his own people.
