No one has touched on the real reason US got involved; OIL. Why did US rush to aid Kuwait? OIL. Why does US allow Saudi Arabia to give aid and comfort to Muslim extremists? OIL. Why does the Arab world wield disproportionate influence on the rest of the world? OIL. The oil corporations are the global puppetmaster. Pose a threat to the oil supply and watch how swiftly you gat knocked on your ass. Ask Saddam Hussein, hanged by the neck until dead.

When did Obama promise that?

Seems like a popular saying suddenly, which talking head did all you steal that idea from? It's nice to have someone do your thinking for you...

Let's see. 130 Tomahawk cruise missile at $700,000 apiece plus postage and handling is about $1,000,000 each. Hmm. That's 130 million bucks. And they aren't working. Hmmm. Who's smarter? Gadhafi or O'Barry?? Hmmmmm.

Not sure if you noticed this, mom...two of the wars were going on when Obama took office. Do you people actually vote?!? How do you function as a real person without knowing what the F is happening in the world?

The bottom line our politicians need to keep out of the Arab world. Our Goverment needs to be held accountable for thousands of American lives lost in battle. We cannot instill American values on Arab nations. They have been killing each other for thousands of years. All of which is based on tribal and religious beliefs. We as a Nation needs to find alternative fuel sources, If not a third World War is inevitable! Or is the intent?

Yea, but that was then, this is now. Slowbama also gave a no bid contract to Haliburton. Libby heads sploding everywhere? Of course not, you never actually thought they had principals did you? At least Bush got approval.
