How are we justified to think what is right and what is wrong. It's their country, let them kill each other.

What I want to know is where all the liberal outrage is against the naked aggression our war-mongering president has shown against the poor Libyan government.

Quite a bit of it going around that I can see, particularly on the Twitter. I've also seen it on Fark and Facebook. 

Also, the level of paranoid in this thread, on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being an AM radio personality on a cocktail of cocaine and Vyvanse, is currently at about an 8.3.

I think your scale is horrible flawed Whale. I don't see any paranoia, if anything I see a balance between making jokes and general annoyance at "hey, those are our moneys..."

Not a fan of war, and I hope that another isn't started, but at least they're not saying "BUT LIKE DUDES WE HAVE TO GET ThE WMDS TAHT ARE TOTALLY THERE"

What's really ridiculous is the OMG IT'S OBAMA'S IRAQ that I keep seeing on conservative sites (I'm looking at you Drudge). Both sides are so eager to see the other one fail politically that they literally hope for repeats of the same catastrophic bad decisions. This is so not Iraq it's not even funny.

Good point.  There is even less apparent justification for this action than there was for "Bush's wars" and yet the press is not savaging the President.


My guess is that they figure this is his chance to finally earn that Nobel Prize.

If anything this is most like the Balkans in the 90s with Clinton. It seems like our contribution is going to be blasting some missiles.

What do you mean there's less justification? They took out air defence systems to help allies enforce a no-fly zone.

This is actually really, really straightforward from the sounds of it.

Wars (Or military exercises, what have you) have honeymoons. If you'll recall, the NYT has been heavily criticized for essentially being an executive lapdog for most of 2003-2004, just accepting the claims of WMD stockpiles as truth and never questioning harshly any alternative motives for entering Iraq.

What this is is the first time the international community has really taken the concept of Responsibility to Protect seriously, and enforced it with a proper Chapter 7 U.N. mandate followed by military action. The correct precedent is being set, and after this, expectations will be higher for developed states to intervene when acts of atrocity are underway.

Yup, he actually said that.
