According to who? And why?
Why do we have a responsibility to act in Libya and not in Syria? Why do we have a responsibility to act at all, in the Middle East (short of helping our only real ally, Israel)?
Oh, I remember now – we need the oil. Our allies need the oil. Where are all those anti-war protestors that screamed “no blood for oil” during the Bush years? What’s happened to the stupid Cindy Sheehan?
Okay, now this conservative is screaming it: No blood for oil! Bring our soldiers home!
I could NOT care less about muslims killing muslims. And I don’t want our soldiers sacrificed to protect them from each other. When they are done killing each other, they’ll be back to killing us.
This Libya thing is about civil war – a power struggle – and oil.
If we are arming ONE Al Qaeda member, that’s one too many. If we are aiding one, it’s one too many. None of us have forgotten who attacked us on 9/11. I’m sure there are a lot of liberals in this country who have, including it seems, TheOne, but the majority of us, regular Americans, have not forgotten.
The Libyans are tribes, who mostly still live in a stone age with cell phones and modern weapons. They don’t care about or understand western democracy. They aren’t fighting for “freedom.” Who’s kidding who? They are fighting for power and control. And the ones who win (most likely it will be Al Qaeda) won’t be our pals. They’ll be very rich – oil rich – enemies.
Wake up, America! they won’t like us any better than they did on 9/11 or 2 days ago. A no-fly zone and air cover is not going to change that and the president just can’t seem to “get it.” They may have the same color politics – Obama and the muslims – but that’s where it ends.
And while we’re on the subject of a “responsibility to act” – what about the Christians in Ethiopia who recently were terrorized, killed and had their churches burned down? What about the Christians in Afghanistan who are being terrorized and killed? What about the outrage for a family in Israel that was murdered in their sleep?
WHERE IS THAT DAMNED OUTRAGE, MISTER PRESIDENT? WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT ”RESPONSIBLITY TO ACT?”

This is the change he promised.
We are immersed in it whether we like it or not.
The fools that allowed him to achieve the presidency are the ones that should be held accountable for the demise of America’s sovereignty throughout the world.
This tiny man is just that.
The rest of the world sees it, we see it.
I surmise that we will see him scratch and claw for the admiration that he thinks he deserves for the next two years.
It has been obvious to me and you that he NEEDS attention.
He thrives on it.
The Oval Office doesn’t have an audience, that’s why he seeks out other forums to get the reinforcement his ego demands.
Cheers my Friend.

It’s becoming clearer and clearer, AFVET – this man is evil and has no concern about America. Not the America that most of us love and want to keep alive.
