The MSM performs fellatio on Barry

This is supposedly a "watershed" moment for his administration, and they are being "prudent," and "cautious," if the headline is to be believed.

The downplay is continuing with spreading the culpability; "Obama's aides insist that Washington is merely following the Europeans' lead(s)," as if that's relevant.

They're almost orgasmic with this one;
"As the crises accumulate, Obama has remained the picture of detached serenity."
Barf.

James Wesley Rawles has this to say of the situation, all of which I agree with;
"The UN seems intent on invading or at least bombing Libya. And U.S. forces will it seems, as per usual, be in the thick of it. Pardon me for sounding like a hick who inappropriately points out the obvious at a swank soiree, but I must ask: 1.) Why are we directly sticking out noses into a civil war? 2.) Who gave the U.N. debating society the God-like omniscience to deem Gaddafi's national government "illegitimate"? 3.) When did Congress abrogate its power to declare war? And, 4.) Why is the current Administration so intent on replacing an ostensibly secular dictatorship with an Islamic dictatorship?"
Word.

Note to the clueless on this whole bit; George Bush was much derided for taking this country to war with another Mid-East dictator...FOR EXACTLY THE SAME FUCKING REASONS BEING TROTTED OUT TO YOU IN THIS CURRENT FIASCO.

I'm laughing at all that change from The New Boss.

I hope this shit bites Barry in the ass.

Makes you wonder what Libya has that the UN child-rapists and drug-dealers want. Is it a captive audience? A captive consumer-market for their nasty African stuff? A dumping-ground for all the Bosnian whores and addicts they created? A ditch in the middle of the desert they can fill and doze-over??

Stipulating that Ghaddifi/Khadiffi/however-the-hell-you're-supposed-to-spell-it is a festering carbuncle on the ass of humanity, Jugears had two choices with regard to best U.S. response and completely fucked up this yes/no question by voting "Present".

Either he and the U.S. assume the lead in taking the asshole down (Dubya's endgame in Iraq) which would have gotten The Current Occupant poleaxed with the base (especially with Calypso Louie's crowd) or sit it out completely and letting the (spit) French, who DO have a vested interest in the region, take the lead and the heat. Gotta say, if Hillary had his chair right now I suspect shed've bombed the shit out of something and found someone else to blame. I can't think she's in this loop, other than having to explain after the fact.

What's most upsetting to me is that our foreign policy has been so vacillating over the last 40 or so years that potential local allies have been alienated to the concept of trust in the U.S. IF Jimmeh had had more balls we'd not have the problems with Iran we now do. IF Reagan would've gone after Syria after the Lebanese embassy bombing; IF Bush 1 hadn't geeked after the "Highway Of Death" coverage and instead taken Saddam out in '91; IF Clinton hadn't decided on killing an aspirin factory instead of K/Ghaffi.

All hypotheticals of course. Up until 2005 the Kurds loved us even though Bush 1 pussed out and dumped 'em under the bus because of concerns with respect to Turkish sensibilities (yeah George, that's workin' out so well, ain't it?).

If I were a member of the Libyan, Egyptian, Saudi, Syrian, Lebanese, Sudanese, Eritrean -- hell, you name it -- resistance, I wouldn't trust U.S. statements of support as far as I could throw a house. Our word is worthless to those who would most wish to rely on it. The merits of the various "liberation" movements in all those countries aren't the immediate issue; whether or not our government's asuurances are worth a shit ARE.

Don't suppose I have to keep my own counsel on that one . . .
