Ask Obama as he's continuing this farce that Bush started. And NO to your suggestions that Conservatives support wars only started by Conservative Presidents.

If Obama was honest during the campaign and stated that he would keep Gitmo open AND continue on in Iraq and Afghanistan he would have NEVER been elected.

Kanye West/rapper. He was on TV with Paul Simon. It was hysterical to see Simon's face when West said it. And imagine - Bush stated it was the worst moment of his presidency - go figure.

Republicans' mileage will vary
You really are clueless to bring up the SPINELESS Arab League ???

How many cowards are in this "Arab League" and why aren't they doing the fighting???

Quit trying to find LAME excuses YOU and everyone else knows the USA will do the bulk of the grunt work and bear the most costs.

The Arab Nations are ALL talk and when things don't go their way they'll blame the US anyways, It is a JOKE for the Obama Administration to even mention the Arab League.

They'll only show up after it's over to parade around a secure area for Al Jazeera cameras.

According to Al Arabiya, Qatar and the UAE will most likely get involved. Egypt is not but they have been helping the rebels already..

They HAVE been taking the lead. They were th first to recognize the rebels and they pushed the UN resolution with Britain. they were also the first to send planes to attack.

I can't believe we went and started another war. This is not our fight! Let the people of Libya deal with their own crap!
