But but but...Hillary Clinton said the Rebels are "really" Civilians, they just like to carry around Ak47's and shoot at Army personal...So it must be a slaughter! Hillary said so, it has to be true. Oh and those WMD's were never a lie in Iraq either, the White House always tells the truth...We just need to look harder for the WMDs!

If your going to twist things around in your mind, let's just end the conversation here...

Makeing stuff up and twisting and inventing sentiment, expressed by someone who has a different stance than yourself is of very poor taste...

You know that's not what I meant...and I haven't time for below the belt games...later...
You have been called out and don't like it.
You want only to look at only half of the picture and see us in white hats riding to the rescue.
Reality is, we have no moral authority to intervene as our government has plenty of innocent blood on it's hands through our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I'm disappointed in Obama, man. Earlier this week I was giving him laurels that we have a very smart and able president who knows which bullet to dodge.

It's so unfortunate. He sort of reminded me of Hadrian who pulled his troops out of crazy places and built a wall around the Roman empire, giving a clear message that "expansion" is done once and for all, and consolidation was the need of the hour, must to the chagrin of the wingnuts of his time.

But........

When a mad man like Kadafi is in power...such a man takes brutal retribution..(revenge)...on any and everyone he deems a 'trader'...

It doesn't just stop at so called 'rebels' or 'resistant fighters'...it goes into their family, their mothers, relatives ect ect...

Heck, even street gangs over here do that...

These regimes don't play by neat little rules written in some Harvard book...

Just go over there, and you'll see what I mean...

Good grief, you do remember how the situation started don't you? It began with a peaceful protest and turned ugly when government forces began machine gunning the protesters...What would you do if that government was yours? I can just imagine.

Hillary Clinton, drumming up support to attack Libya:

“Qadhafi must go,” Clinton said, calling him “a ruthless dictator that has no conscience and will destroy anyone or anything in his way.” If he does not go, she added, “he will just make trouble – that is just his nature, there are some creatures that are like that.”

Bush, drumming up support to invade Iraq:
“Saddam Hussein the Butcher of Baghdad and his two evil sons must go,” BUSH said, calling him “a ruthless dictator that has no conscience and will destroy anyone or anything in his way.” If he does not go, he added, “he will just make trouble – that is just his nature, there are some creatures that are like that.”


Does Hillary have the same Speech Writer Bush had, or is she just so inept that she has to steal quotes from other people.

Your like arguing with yourself...I'm not you...we have different opinions about things...

Accept that...

What you shouldn't do is 'personalize it'...

If your ok with people getting slaughtered on the streets...than fine...

But I'm not....

Don't do like talk show hosts and try to insult someone just because they have a different moral stance than yourself...

It's about class, and knowing how to exchange thoughts and ideas, without acting like a 5th grader...

Breaking News: First U.S. missiles fired at Libya. No link yet, this is all there is, besides what's being reported live on Fox News and MSNBC.

Apparently Tomahawks fired from a submarine.
