"lawmakers are exasperated with the administration and its ability to spell out a strategy, said one GOP leadership aide, speaking on condition of anonymity to freely describe the situation". Spell out a strategy? OIL, secure it and keep it flowing. They could give a crap about peoples "freedom".

Lybia was selling oil in other currencies NOT the federal reserve note which was cutting the control of the elite. Lybia also has gold, real gold not tungston covered gold.

That is why they went into Lybia.

Yeah ... by all means, let's delay the vote some more.

After all, we wouldn't want to deprive Halliburton of it's $78 MILLION PER DAY for "supporting our troops."

We have oil here. We do not need Libyan oil. I can't speak for NATO though.

GOP denied Obama any landed troops in Libya by vast majority 480-5.

Once again you democrats grasp at straws to defend Obama going AWOL. The WH had inside information that Kucinich's bill would pass so they are PLAYING GAMES AGAIN with deadlines and delays. Obama looking for a reason to stay in Libya now. He never had a goal nor strategy to begin with. His sponsors did. But he cannot outline it as it would involve assisting rebels or possible unknown Al Quaida forces.

Do not open doors to Barack Obama's fake grassroot zombies. Treat emails as spam ----- delete immediately. Do not read, contains lies and key hypnotic words. Keep clear.

Do not watch network news sound bites.

Poor teabagger, "Get Informed"? You're telling me that when you are as lost as a rat in a shit house. He never had a goal or strategy"? I just gave it to you: OIL. If you had any other sources besides FOX and other Republican news sources you would know that there are over 20 oil companies doing business in Libya but by all means, carry on with your IDIOTIC rant.

We should withdraw. We should not even be involved the way things stand.

The president commands the military, not decide where to send them willy-nilly into any conflict he desires.

He acts like he is king, sending out his subjects to support his position in the world.

It's the whole of the Middle East Obama has involved us in.

From Yemen to Syria to Egypt and more.

Tired of our soldiers, our money going over there.

And Obama lies...it's the NATO troops...yeah, filled with Americans.

Can believe what Obama says.

And more money to Hamas.

Obama already sent $900 million US taxpayer dollars to Hamas immediately after he took office, along with another $20.3 million to relocate Palestinian refugees to the US, for transportation, food, and housing, but only for those who were "overwhelming in their support for the Islamic Resistance Movement", aka Hamas.

Can We Give To Gaza Without Giving To Hamas?
http://www.forbes.com/2009/03/04/gaza-hamas-c...

"If stuffing billions worth of aid into the Palestinian territories could end Islamist terrorism out of Gaza, it might be worth the money. That seems to be President Obama's gamble, with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton jetting to a donors' conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, this past Monday, to chip in $900 million on behalf of U.S. tax payers. All told, more than 70 countries, cheered on by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, pledged a whopping total of $4.5 billion in fresh aid to the Palestinians.

20.3 million to move Hamas to US -- May 13, 2010
http://www.independentamerican.org/2010/05/13...

"HB1388 PASSED
You just spent $20,000,000 (actually FRNs) to move members/supporters of Hamas, a terrorist organization, to the United States ; housing, food, the whole enchilada.

Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U.S. needs to know…. Something happened… H.R. 1388 was passed, behind our backs. You may want to read about it… It wasn’t mentioned on the news… just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen."

Obama offers up taxpayer money to relocate Hamas to U.S.-- February 5, 2010
http://www.anobamanation.net/2009/02/obama-en...
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/...

"It appears that Obama is not only opening up the floodgate for the immigration of Hamas into the U.S, he's offering to help cover their moving expenses with taxpayer money.

Canadian Free Press reports:

Obama opening floodgates by inviting Hamas to “migrate” to the U.S.A.?

On his first official day in the White House, President Barack Obama was on the horn to President Mahmoud Abbas.

“The spokesman for President Abbas revealed that Mr. Obama had told the Palestinian leader that their conversation was his first with a foreign statesman since taking office.”(TimesOnLine, Jan. 22, 2009).

Some thought that first call to the leader of the Palestinian authority was for spite. Others for statesman like reasons, still others for appeasement.

Given that a clip from Al-Jazeera televised Hamas-controlled Palestinians “burning up the phone bank from Gaza” to rally support for his presidential campaign, perhaps the telephone call was made out of gratitude.

Seven days later on January 27, President Obama signed Presidential Determination No. 2009-15, which allocates $20.3 million for Palestinian migration and refugee assistance."

I think we should just give Palestinians a big chunk of land somewhere, about the same size as Israel, with the same geography and climate and let them start fresh. A county in Texas should fit the bill nicely. We could give them some land along the Reo Grande. Then the Mexicans would have to get through Palestine to sneak into the USA.

Obviously understanding sarcasm is not a strong point of yours. Getting reliable news and information from Topix is like reading The Onion and believing it's a reputable news paper.
