I've always said the results of the Iraq war won't be known for years. The Bush legacy won't be known for decades.

One has to wonder how much of role the downfall of Saddam and the fledgling democracy the Iraqi people are beginning to realize has resulted in what we've seen transpire over the last few weeks.

I guess they know better than to think there's any chance of getting help from the "Procrastinator-in-Chief" Obama.
Great!! I couldn't be happier. And if Bush promises to go over there and never come back, i'll pay for his fare. I'll even buy a first class ticket for him.

Sure. Makes no difference to me. I happen to like old H.W. somewhat, but if he's espousing an invasion of Libya, i'll pay to ship his whole damn family to Libya.

But this thread is about the Libya rebels asking for Bush and not Obama.
Libyan rebels? or a Libyan rebel?

Now that the Americans are out safely, I would be pushing the UN into an emergency session and get help for the refugees on the border. Then I'd get some UK and US special forces in there to protect the oil fields and help the rebels over throw the madman.

So far the rebels say they don't need ground forces, but I'm sure some Spec Ops helping to co-ordinate things would be welcome. Plus you'd make some friends that way.

I should have added that the UN could call for a no-fly zone although that takes quite a bit of preparation to actually implement. I don't know if it could be done soon enough.
