I don't think that it will surprise you to know that I oppose the current military intervention in Libya.
My reasons are basically the same as they were for the invasion and continuin occupation of Iraq, and are the same for my opposition to the escalation and and continuance of the war in Afghanistan. I don't think that I really need to enumerate them here... if you aren't familiar with my blog, look around, you'll see what I mean.
I think that there isn't a single, solitary good reason to this military operation, and I think that it should end immediately.
There, you know how I feel about it... but that isn't wht I really want yo talk about, my friends.
What I want to talk about is all of the noise coming from the Republican/Tea Party/whack-a-doodle news network (known by some as Fox News) echo chamber. Aside from taking a crack at our President, why are Republicans against this operation? It doesn't make sense to me that the people who thought that the invasion and occupation of two sovereign nations, in the name of freedom, liberty, and self-determination was a good idea, DON'T think that this operation in Libya makes just about as much sense.
How can you support one or two, if you can't support the other?
To tell you the truth, I don't see why the right-wing whackos aren't applauding our support of people who are actually TRYING to oust their dictator. No... instead, the Republi-dopes have taken another tack. They have used this militay operation, however ill-advised, for political purposes. Our airmen (and likely our Special Forces) are in harms way and the Republicans don't support them.
You know, if I was another sort of person, I might point out the hypocrisy of their position. If I was another sort of person, I might say that the Republican willingness to play politics with this issue smacks of a blatant anti-military bias. If I was another sort of person, I might say that their criticism of a President in a time of war was downright unpatriotic, communist, treasonous, traitorous, and all sorts of other bad things.
Good thing for them that I'm not that kind of person.
You people are a bunch of effing hypocrits, and I wish you great confusion as you destroy yourselves before the next Presidential cycle.
