    It's a little depressing, the site's short attention span when it comes to issues, but that's just the way it is, and will always be. Plus issues will always take a back seat to politics. Why talk about war when we can talk about the President staged open mike "accident"?

      Is the cheerleading squad. They seem to cheer anything Obama does. Commit to helping rebels, then when he loses interest they lose interest and cheer that. The loyalist core seems pretty amoral to me. ( btw this doesn't reflect on Obama himself, who appears to friendly to rebels consistently).

      Anyway...

        supported the intervention because you thought it was the right thing to do. I disagreed position but knew your position was sincere. Many people here supported it just because Obama did it, and now that things are deteriorating for the Libyans whom they purportedly cared about, not a peep.

        in Bahrain, Pakistan or Afghanistan or anyplace where our national interest and 'security' deems them insurgents or terrorists or unstable,  would not agree with his 'friendliness'. I imagine in this case this unholy threesome have their Chalabi all ready to install.

          It probably made no difference with ME policy if McCain or Obama won election. There is a general decision to repress Shiites - Bahrain, Saudi and Iranian.  Fair enough. Obama and McCain share that policy effectively.

          But I have good enough reasons to want Gaddafi gone. Lockerbie is enough of an excuse all by itself. Actively siding with rebels somewhere is also generally good too. Obama was too laid back in Egypt. Luckily Mubarak acted like a gentleman. With gaddafi Gone there will be free speech in Libya.
