The Marxist-in-Chief has told us that we're not at war. That's funny because i was under the impression that when you fly over an independent, sovereign nation and drop bombs on them and fire missiles at them, killing their military forces, that's a war. Apparently, i'm a bit old fashioned in my thinking.
It's also been very interesting (albeit not surprising) to watch the always-anti-govt., (except with the Obummer administration) Leftist media agreeing with comrade Obummer and calling for Qaddafi's demise, while weeping for the poor, anti-govt. "rebels", who they claim, "are being slaughtered by the millions". Odd how they have no video to back that claim up, even with thousands of media people and their cameras on the ground. Hmm... To be fair, it's not just the notoriously anti-war Demoncrats who are calling for us to go there and bomb stuff, but it's also some Republicans. And it's all in the name of helping the "poor rebels", who, after all, only want "democracy and to be free". At no time since this started, has anyone bothered to ask the question, "but who exactly are these (rebels)" ? Only now, after the bombs have been dropped, after the Tomahawks have been fired, and after our warriors are once again being called "murderers", do we start to realize that perhaps, we have really screwed-up again as we did in Afghanistan when the so-called "rebels" there were fighting the Russians with our help, weapons, and money. Those rebels turned into Al-Qaeda. Now it seems, the so-called "poor rebels" of Lybia may in fact be, Al Qaeda fighters and/or supporters.
If anyone ever asks you the question, "what happens when you take a local Marxist agitator off his street corner and make him the POTUS", you now know the answer...
