Plenty of Libyans, women, children, and blacks died, but I guess they don't count. US pays 80% of the bills for NATO, so let's quit pretending NATO did it.

Gadhafi wasn't captured, he was murdered.

Great, lets get ready for our next war then!

Everyone aboard the neo-con train to Africa and SE asia!

Obama is the neo-con change Cheney hoped for.

War with no need for congressional authorization, extra-judicial killings of americans, etc.

Cheney couldn't be more proud.

Uh- those were Libyan citizens who rebelled against their tyrant leader. Except for the broken down cars, they were pretty much like the guys who fought our own war for liberty.

And instead of the French helping out with their fleet, like we had, the Libyan rebels got help from NATO jets.

Same deal, 200 years apart in different countries.

What's that? Unintended consequences you say? Be careful who you get in bed with you say?

Screw it, we're all Cheney-ites now. Let's overthrow all the governments we think are bad.

The result? Gadhafi is down and CHANGE is happening in Libya.

He did this without the usual interference from the regressive obstructionists (Republicans in Congress). This is also how he got bin Laden, without giving those losers a chance to oppose and cause the effort to fail. Nothing any of the joke GOP candidates can say about this. If they had an ounce of brains, they'd congratulate the President on his victory. Great to have a man of intelligence, character, integrity, and depth at the helm.

Another plus for President Obama!
I'm waiting to hear the GOP's response, I doubt if they will give Obama any credit grrrrrrrrrr, probably not, I'm sure Cheney and Cantor will say their BS

Hurray! Hurray for Obama!

Let's go to more wars! Who cares that all the people that supported Momar are going to want to drive planes into our buildings for intervening in their internal affairs.

If there's one thing we've learned over the last few decades, it's that there's absolutely NO consequences for helping islamist overthrow their government!

I look forward to more military intervention throughout the globe.
