Is "Regime Change" The End Game In Libya?

What's the outcome of this mission? According to Marc Ambinder's sources, getting rid of Qadaffi.

End game? Admin official says: "we have multiple scenarios, but none of them end with Qadaffi in power."

Might be nice if the President mentioned that at some point, no?

As for the US military role, right now according Vice Adm. William Gortney, Director of the Joint Staff we're taking the lead but will hand it over to our allies soon.

But echoing comments made by President Obama this afternoon, Gortney said the United States will bring its “unique capabilities” to the front end of the operation to enable the enforcement of a no-fly zone led by international partners. Gortney acknowledged that the U.S. military command and control and logistics capabilities could be tapped for the operation, as well as its aerial refueling tanker fleet.

The airstrikes began after the sun had set in Libya, delaying the damage assessment for several hours. Once coalition forces confirm that Libya’s surface to air assets have been taken out, the U.S. military could deploy Global Hawk unmanned surveillance aircraft for the assessment, in addition to other assets, Gortney said. That would presumably include satellite imagery.

The coalition includes U.S., British, French, Italian and Canadian forces, in addition to other countries—including Arab nations—who have asked not to be named publicly yet.

Meanwhile, the President explains from Rio why we are doing this.

I am deeply aware of the risks of any military action, no matter what limits we place on it. I want the American people to know that the use of force is not our first choice and it’s not a choice that I make lightly. But we cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people that there will be no mercy, and his forces step up their assaults on cities like Benghazi and Misurata, where innocent men and women face brutality and death at the hands of their own government.

...I've acted after consulting with my national security team, and Republican and Democratic leaders of Congress. And in the coming hours and days, my administration will keep the American people fully informed. But make no mistake: Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world.

This whole notion of "acting in the interests of the United States" is simply argument by assertion. What interests? How will the US be impacted at all if Gadaffi stays or goes?

If there's any "doctrine" here it's, "We are answering the calls of a threatened people." If that's really the standard we better hope like hell the North Koreans, Cubans, Chinese, Saudis, et al don't manage to get on Skype and get people on their side. If they do, we may find ourselves in a lot of wars.

Amazing that this is the President who went out for ice cream while Iranians were begging for some supportive words while they were being slaughtered by their government but now we jump into a war with no debate and no discussion of the parameters or end state.

2 Not to be a dick, but who are the rebels and who's leading them? I have heard a few opinions that al Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood may be involved on the ground. Do we really want to dump Qadaffi - which I'm all for - so AQ of the MB can step in?

6 As long as it ends with 'regime change' and does not continue on into 'nation building' I'm not wildly unhappy.

There is an element of the rebels being the devil we don't know, of course; Qadafi has been a devil, but a fairly well contained one in recent years.

24 1. Is Gadaffi an illegitimate ruler?
If so....precisely when did he become illegitimate? He has been in power there for some 40 years....and asI understand it, he had been a bit of a favorite at the UN...having, as he did, a spot on the UN committee on Human rights.

2. When an insurgent group attempts armed insurrection against a legitimate government....is that government expected to meekly acquiesce, or is it reasonable that they employ force to surpress the uprising?

3. When, exactly, is the no-fly zone going to be imposed over Barain? I understand that they are "killing their own people" there. How about Yemen?

I have never had a good feeling about Gadaffi.....someone could have put a bullet into him any time and I wouldn't have lost a bit of sleep. I was really hoping that we would have wiped him out when we conducted those air strikes all those years ago...

Nonetheless, I have a very bad feeling about this intervention....

To say nothing of the UN's philosophical underpinning for their decision to authorize force....very, very shaky!

38 Is this the same guy who joined John Kerry in criticizing Bush's "rush to war"? I am positive there is a speech in which "regime change" was criticized by Obama.

Qaddafi has been in power for decades. Why only now have our "national interests" become jeopardized by his further rule? He's going to commit atrocities? He's committed atrocities for decades to a yawning Western press.He has supported terror groups from his first day as dictator.Hell, he and Obama were practically pals. Did the cuff links Qaddafi sent him for the Inauguration start turning green or something?

What are the terms of victory in this military action? Qaddafi's forces dug in around the capital and the rebels dispersed elsewhere? Stalemate, in other words, which means Qaddafi will bide his time until the West gets tired of it, which it inevitably does, then he will proceed to reconsolidate power, committing atrocities as he goes.So, if regime change is not the goal then this whole exercise is a waste of time and money and is not worth the life of a single service man or woman.

But it is obvious what this is all about. For Bill, it was Monica .. for The Won, it is all about reelection.

I was just reading the War Powers act...
SEC. 2. (c)
The constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief to introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to (1) a declaration of war, (2) specific statutory authorization, or (3) a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.
He then must report to Congress what he did, and why, in certain timeframes... but from what I read, 2.C LIMITS the President...
And I sure don't see any of those conditions applying... as there is no National Emergency, and OUR Territories are not threatened.

Posted by: Flapjackmaka at March 19, 2011 06:17 PM (c5RQr)

75 We can't spend a couple weeks b---hing at Obama because he's not doing anything and then knock him for getting involved.

I will continue to b---h at him because, if he was going to do this, he should have done this a while ago. By now, it's probably difficult to accomplish anything without ground troops. Yeah, I don't think it's realistic to get rid of Qaddafi at this point unless you actually want to invade. He's a fool if he thinks that. And his statements to that effect are idiotic--maybe he's trying to establish a bargaining chip, but I can't imagine Qaddafi takes that seriously. He just winds up looking weak.

As far as America's interest, though (and that if we're going topple one dictatorship we need be topple a bunch more of them)--this is the same argument liberals had over Iraq. We have limitations in our abilities. By all means, I see the argument that we can't do everything. There's merit to that argument. It doesn't follow that we should not engage in actions like this, merely because we can't take care of all of these instances, especially when there are tens if not hundreds of thousands of lives on the line and especially when it would get rid of a guy who's long been a thorn in America's side. Just because you can't solve every injustice and stop all massacres in the world doesn't mean you cease trying to stop them at all.

After refusing to enforce a no-fly zone that was implemented in the wake of one of the most humiliating military defeats for Iraq in all of recorded history, which ended up yielding the real big WMD that everyone had wanted so much - but from LIBYA!! - this same set Axis of Weasels is goign to now put in place a new no-fly zone over a de-WMD'd Libya - after having already given Q'Daffy enough time to get organized and on the offensive on the ground. So the no-fly zone goes in and the French start shooting tanks.

attacked a military airport where Muammar Gaddafi's loyalists are based,
two residents have told Reuters, denying reports on Libyan state TV
that fuel depots were hit.



Muammar Gaddafi's loyalists? Do they mean the army of the Libyan government? Last I checked they are the ones that run the STATE TV. Let's be honest here. We are there to support a rebellion against the current government.

152 Clinton hails Gulf Arab nations for leading charge on Libya
U.S. Secretary of State seeks to bolster strained ties with Arab states as analysts say Bahrain crisis pushed U.S.-Saudi relationship into dangerous territory.

By Reuters
Tags: Israel news Hillary Clinton Saudi Arabia


U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday hailed Gulf Arab nations for leading the charge on Libya, seeking to bolster ties that are under strain as allies such as Saudi Arabia assess the U.S. stance toward protests shaking the region.

Clinton, in Paris for a conference to determine the next steps against Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi, said Washington viewed Arab countries and particularly those in the Gulf as key to the campaign's success.

What is that bitch babbling about? The Gulf States don't have one Soldier anywhere near Libya and they sure as hell are not listening to Obama about their protesters

153 Simple. If you don't have a mission or a goal, then you cannot fail and you cannot be criticized for not achieving what you set out to do. Then, when there are signs of positive results and the landscape is clear, you can swoop in and claim that you have accomplished something that you set out to do.

Fits his profile. Let others commit and lead and then swoop in and claim credit - that it was all part of your master plan.

If you don't commit, you cannot disappoint (except for those you don't care about committing or disappointing in the first place).

Not to be a dick, but who are the rebels and who's leading them? I have

involved on the ground.

I read something on Dekba (yeah, yeah, I know) that indicated Hezbollah had a role in the Libyan uprising. Lord help us all if that's true and the rebels prevail.

184 Any possibility that England asked for support in this as a return of the favor of supporting us in Afghanistan so long? They DO need the oil, after all.

I can accept a limited amount of engagement if that's the case; otherwise, I don't see why we had to get involved here, since we don't even know if the rebels are any better than Qadaffi.

the difference is that Bush got Congress's OK to invade Iraq...

President needs either a decleration of war (wwII), authorization by Congress (Iraq and Afganistan) OR National Emergency, OR American troops, or Territory must be in danger (or an allies IF there is a Ratified defense pact with them).
I really do not see how helping Rebels in Libya is covered under the War Powers Act, without cover from Congress.

Posted by: Uncle Jefe at March 19, 2011 07:11 PM (CMPXK)

224 As per Wiki: Libya: about 6.5 million people, roughly 90% in 3 coastal cities, with about 90% of the country essentially uninhabited (and borderline habitable). Effectively, the neighbors are the ones also on the coast: Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria. The rest are on the other side of the Sahara desert, and with few access points, and they usually don't pass as Libyans.
I see failure due to political reasons as very much more likely than due to military reasons.
Let's simplify the Libyan Question:
Since it looks like there is a good chance for regime change in Libya, what are the potential outcomes, ordered by most favorable to the US and allies, to the least?
1. Q retains power.
Q. is a more-or-less known quantity, but if he stays in power, he will be much more of a problem. He knows how to run a country, at least better than the Muslim Brotherhood, and he knows how to deal with the West, at least businesses that like his money. His oil brings him lots of money, so he can afford to cause all sorts of trouble: rent mercenaries from Chad, Sudan, Niger, ... (real popular with the Libyans), finance harbor terrorists, pursue nukes again, funnel hundreds of thousands of refugees through Libya to Europe.
2. Egypt, and maybe Algeria invade, and partition Libya.
Might happen. But Egypt is in political turmoil, and may yet become an Islamic regime.
3. Islamists, most likely the MB, manage to take over, or obtain heavy influence in the new Libyan regime. My guess is that they will in fact do what I suspect Q. might do, only on a larger scale.
However, the MB has never run a country, and judging by the way Islamists run their concerns, they are inept and, like just about all tribalists, will end up fighting over the Libyan oil money and "people" money, like a dog over the piece of meat the other dog has. The sizable majority of the ~6.5 million Libyans are quite well aware of Europe's standard of living: cell phones, the internet, etc. How likely is it that they will give these things up to become Shari'a-compliant?
I see Q as a very-serious-but-short-term threat. I think he, or his sons, will try for PanAm 103 Parts 2 - ... simply for revenge. Let's end this before it happens.
The MB or other Islamists are a very serious long-term threat, but they are marginally competent. Worst case, giving them control of Libya (the keys to the car) will result in Libya being driven into a ditch within a year.
Egyptians are also aware of Western "stuff", and the lab experiment of Libya, Right Next Door, just might wake up many Egyptians, Algerians and Tunisians.
This is a big risk, but it helps blunt the Islamist cause in the Muslim world.

The liberal media is orgasmic over the thoughtful reasoning of Obama to
halt the wanton killing of innocents in Lybia, however, Bush the Butcher created
an unlawful coalition that attacked the innocent Iraqi people for the
purpose of evening the score for the attempted murder of GHW Bush, and
to steal Iraqi oil. Only elitist liberals have sufficient brain

Drudge's point (the way I interpreted it anyway) was that the Left claims that Obama is CHANGE! from Bush. But here Obama is using similar words as Bush did on the same day 8 years later.

He's pointing out the irony. That's how I took it anyway.

I agree with your point that Obama bypassed everything (debate, speeches, going before Congress, etc) that led up to Operation Iraqi Freedom.

I took it in the same manner that people sarcastically have pointed out that here we have Obama "going to war for oil" just like the Left accused Bush of doing in Iraq.

I don't read Lefty blogs, so I have no idea how they are reacting to all this. But, if they were consistent, they would be as enraged about Obama's actions here as they were about Bush's actions RE: Iraq.

Something tells me, though, that they aren't planning "anti-war" rallies where they call Obama a war-monger, terrorist and hang him in effigy.

--Delta, did you know that there is an illicit Cisco-like wine making inroads? Last month I went to a baby shower of a friend of the wife's and one of the guys (who was at our wedding) brought this stuff called Four Loko from Mexico. It is banned in the States, but is carbonated and has fruity flavors. It is like supercharged wine cooler, which is no doubt why it is banned, since like Cisco stupid high schoolers would chug it like wine coolers and die from alcohol poisoning.

259 my mind is going numb, fighting myself over this.
1 . people being killed
2. what is the end game for the rebels> what type of gvt.?
3. fighting two wars , the left shrieked about for a decade . called bush our military and republicans murderers , bigots (killing brown people), blood for oil etc etc.
4. U.N seems to be able to have authority control over our military actions. (what's righteous war to them after slapping us around for dozens of years)
5. Arab League. poleaaase they care about the Lybians lives? er whatever
6.Has Lybia threatened us or paid for terrorists to kill americans or allies? not clear
7. fiscal circumstances of the U.S.
8. saving our resources against much scarier countries as NK , Iran,
9. if the reasons we are going in are humanitarian , (laudable ) but why not NK, Yemen, darfur, somalia, etc. etc.
10. why not let Europe take care of their interests, and Help save the citizens that are in danger. We are in two wars are they helping us?
Obama had everything bad to say like any good leftist did about Bush's murderous war, as did his cohorts and political party. so i'm a little bit cranky that I am to be supportive of this action which i find no american benefit in, with exception of doing a good deed, (if it doesn't end up a hezbollah , hamas run state ) and as we've seen from last year on Iran citizens were ignored, yemen? and others but this seems to be where a line that i cannot see is drawn for Obama to act. so there's my mind bend.

I really do not see how most things Obama and the Democrats have done the last 2+ years are covered under our US Constitution and other laws. So this is consistent in their actions the last 2+ years.

Nothing they do surprises me anymore. Neither does it surprise me that the Left and the MF-ing media don't hold them to the same standards to which they held Bush and the GOP from 2000-2008.

And it is exactly because of that, that Obama and the Democrats continue to act in the manner that they do. Why bother following the rules if no one bothers to hold you accountable? If the refs aren't throwing flags for holding, why would an O-lineman stop holding? Same applies here.

Sheik Qaradawai, Muslim Brotherhood member and chief Sunni cleric, has called for the murder of Kaddafy. But then again, he's spelling it "Gaddhafie", so it could be a totally different guy.

But why should it matter that we ally ourselves with Islamists? What matters is that we're in the game, right? Here is Charles Krauthammer letting loose with the Neocon crie de couer- "We must attack everything, Now!":

Air Force or Air Defense? There is a difference. If Daffy has no air force and no air defenses, the field is pretty much level between the rebels and the rest of Daffy's army.

331 What interests? How will the US be impacted at all if Gadaffi stays or goes?

Drew, You are waaaaay overthinking this. Obama wanting nothing to do with this. K'Daffy is a huge supporter of Rev. Wright and is a darling of the Chicago communist crowd (yes, I said communist). The ONLY reason Obama has USA involved in military action is because the French and British had decided to go forward. If the French and British weren't going to do anything, Obama damn sure wasn't going to do anything, despite Hillary's compaining BUT, once the French and British decided to move forward, Obama decided he could not weather the political consequences of sitting on the sidelines and looking weaker than the French. It's really as simple as that.

332 First Farrakhan, now Moore. Aww...Bambi's got no friends...

From The Hill

Anti-war filmmaker Michael Moore tore into President Obama for taking military action in Libya on Saturday.

Moore, a frequent critic of President Bush for launching the Iraq War, unleashed a string on tweets comparing the U.S. military's mission in Libya to Iraq and Afghanistan, using a mantra coined by Charlie Sheen:
It's only cause we're defending the Libyan people from a tyrant! That's why we bombed the Saudis last wk! Hahaha. Pentagon=comedyAnd we always follow the French's lead! Next thing you know, we'll have free health care free college! Yay war!We've had a "no-fly zone" over Afghanistan for over 9 yrs. How's that going? #WINNING !Khadaffy must've planned 9/11! #excusesKhadaffy must've had WMD! #excusesthatworkKhadaffy must've threatened to kill somebody's daddy! #daddywantedjebMay I suggest a 50-mile evacuation zone around Obama's Nobel Peace Prize? #returnspolicy

339
Months of weapon-exchange negotiation between the governments of France and Turkey came to a fruitful head late last evening when the French government announced its intent to deliver 15 MIG fighter planes to Turkey by the end of the week to help in Libya's no-fly zone. According to Butrous Dervish, senior French minister for Weapon Technologies, “These planes are one of a kind custom built planes that employ a unique attack mechanism- they come equipped with high frequency Bose speakers that sound off the curse “fuck you” when switched on. The pilot has a volume and decibel meter which allows for real time adjustments, allowing you to attack your targets with pinpoint precision. We also threw in an ‘echo’ control for some dramatic effect.”

However, some Turkish military aides remain unconvinced that it would work in a rural setting. “In a lot of the remote villages and rural areas, the people don’t understand the word “fuck”. Until and unless the mechanism comes equipped with regional language adaptability, we won’t see meaningful results.” says Brig. Babar Khan.

Concerns were also raised regarding the validity of the French claims of “minimal collateral damage” by several military strategists who maintain “How can you even tell the sirens are for you? What if someone happens to be in the sound radius and is bombarded with these profanities? The psychological damage can take years to wear off, or worse, be irreparable”.

The Turkish intelligence authorities have discussed the issue with the French engineers and explained that since they’re putting all the nations money in these planes and hence educating the masses would be impossible, they should look in to added local and specially regional curses. The Turkish authorities however confirmed that if the French engineers install the requested region options in the planes, they would increase the tax rates to collect funds to pay the French engineers for their extra work.

352 THIS IS IT??? THIS IS NATO WAGING WAR????....AFTER 2 WEEKS OF DELIBERATION - 100 CRUISE MISSILES A DAY AND FRENCH JETS KNOCKING OUT 4 TANKS???.....THIS IS IT????....AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO MAKE GADHAFI DUCK???.....ARE WE SERIOUS???

I apologize for yelling folks, but let's just go home. Right now. If we're serious about going to war with Libya, then we go in immediately with everything we have and attack relentlessly and remorselessly - cruise missiles, planes (hundreds of them) which drop their bombs, fly back to Italy, Malta or the carriers they came from, re-arm, and then fly the next sortie, and then the sortie after that, and the sortie after that, and so on 24 X 7. At least both Bush Presidents got THAT part of warfare right!!!!

If we're going to have some sort of fucking "graduated response" the way we did in Vietnam, where drop a bomb and see what the enemy thinks about THAT, then let's just pack everything up and go home. We're wasting our time and unnecessarily endangering the lives of our pilots.

I have to laugh. In the Gulf Wars (and Afghanistan) the MSM was so busy fellating Colin Powell, they came up with what they called the 'Powell Doctrine'. Remember that? When you attack another country, you go in from the start with absolutely overwhelming force - and never cease.

Wow! How radical! As though a fucking caveman couldn't figure out (and actually implemented) such a strategy! But no. According to the MSM this was an entirely new, and unheard of concept for successfully waging war.

But now, with Obama purportedly in charge, let's hold back and revert to what liberals always do when they go to war. Show how compassionate they are. How concerned they are about (gulp!) killing people.

Absolutely guaranteed? Next step, we're going to cease bombing Libya in order to force Gadhafi to the negotiating table. Which leads to the question - Why the fuck should there even be a negotiating table??

BTW: If I sound thoroughly disgusted at this turn of events....it's because I am.

354 Watch the Farrakhan video at Drudge. Classic!
Exit question: How much $$$ has Q'Daffy "loaned" to Farrakhan?







A: At least $5 million. And according to NYT: "Clinton Administration officials said today that they would almost certainly reject an application from the Nation of Islam and its leader, Louis Farrakhan, to be allowed to accept a donation of more than $1 billion from Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi of Libya."

Like I said, Obama wanted no part of this. The French pushed him and he could not afford to look "weaker" than the French.

Obama is a damned liar (which you already knew). I believe this is being done for two reasons: shoring up oil for the Euros (especially the frogs, who jumped on the rebel bandwagon early) and his sagging poll number.

They have already received their orders. They know where they are going. They already got the winning the hearts and minds speech.

Not to be a dick, but who are the rebels and who's leading them? I have
heard a few opinions that al Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood may be
involved on the ground. Do we really want to dump Qadaffi - which I'm
all for - so AQ of the MB can step in?

I hope so because we are already officially at war with Al Qaeda. Teh battle field is more advantageous and there is something to gain (oil)

WhiteWimmenz too.

During Mohammed's time a lot of barbaric wars were instigated by the muslims and Mohammed was always the receiver of at least one fifths of the booty. This booty included captured women and children. One can imagine how many women were made into concubines for Prophet Mohammed's carnal pleasure and how many children were his victims.

A unique instance of the effect of female beauty on the Prophet was that of Duba Bint Amr who 'was among the most beautiful of Arab women....her hair was long enough to cover all her body.'(Ibid., p. 153) Mohammed asked her son if he could marry his mother, but later retracted when he heard that Duba Bint Amr, although attractive, was aging.

This shows that Mohammed was only interested in physical beauty and not in providing protection for widows or some other charitable cause as the Muslims have been brain washed to believe. Mohammed was not satisfied with his own overflowing harem and had to marry his son's wife. His son being a devoted follower of the "great" prophet was more than happy to divorce his wife. What a great father-in-law Mohammed was, a model for all Islamic father-in-laws.

As a fitting punishment for all his heinous crimes against women, it was a Jewish woman who poisoned him in her rightful quest for revenge after the battle of Khaybar. During the last four years of his life, his health declined, epileptic fits became more frequent and his other infirmities increased. After living a life of rape, perversion, destruction and plunder, at the age of 62, Mohammed gasped his last breath on the lap of his 17 year old child bride Ayesha who watched him die a slow , long and horrible death.

623 Step 1. Declare war on Libya
Step 2. Go on vacation
Step 3. Mission Accomplished?

Finally, at long last, this asswipe has done something truly unprecedented as President- the Commander in Chief has sent American men in women into harms way and gone on vacation.

And here I thought that it was not possible for this jackass to disgust me any further. This, by orders of magnitude, goes beyond the usual "what if Bush had done this" or, what has become typical of Obama, dereliction of duty.

Seriously, are we, the American public, going to stand by and accept it while a Commander in Chief phones in a war?

If I am ever present when someone starts in on Bush about the "My Pet Goat" thing, I will punch them.

If there were any doubt before, let this settle the argument: Obama thinks that his job as President is to go on vacation and live it up on our dime... and nothing else. What is more disgusting to me is that 52% of Amerian voters thought that they could expect more from someone who's first full time job in life was being President.

Perhaps it's time for someone to tell this fuck that work does not begin at 9:30 am, end at 3pm, and work time does not include Wed. parties, golf, vacations at least once per month, speeches to contributiors or the DNC, or any of the other nonsense he occupies his seemingly endless free time with. No, it is not acceptable or humorous for the President to turn press conferences over to Clinton because he has a party to go to.

And even more disgusting: the media and Republicans are completely mum on all of this.

Fuck every last one of them. If you're not willing or able to do your jobs, then I expect your resignation, not yet another vacation.

Actually the moon comes this close to the earth every month. The only reason this one is unusual is because it's the first time in 18 years that it's also a FULL moon at the same time it's closest to the earth.

Yes, but not in the same way. A number of other presidents have attacked the rich and some would argue certain populations, but Clinton was one of the first to start attacking we conservatives in this way. Still, there has always been animus between political parties and they have long accused each other of some wretched and horrible things.

As for politicians speaking-out, I see and hear more because I've "subscribed" to the Facebook feeds of some movers--shakers and I've seen some of the pressers they hold on CSPAN. The two parties hold press conferences in which they attack each other all the time, but they never make the nightly news. I have come to realize that the MBM can say that, if they don't cover it, it didn't happen. Still wish some of them were more forthright in public about defending us, but some do it more than people know.

696 Anyone seen Cindy Sheehan lately? Is she protesting Toonces,
Yes, she was protesting him back in '09 for not ending the wars. Unsurpsingly she became persona non grata in the MFM and on Kos/DU/etc about that same time.

700 RNC chairman condemns Biden rape comment:

"Using a rape analogy to describe one’s political opponents is
inexcusable beneath the office of the Vice Presidency."

More than we'd get from Michael Steele. Then again, I have low expectations for politicians, so little things may sometimes seem bigger than they are.

701 So our ruling class has assumed that they can send our armed forces anywhere in the world and insert them into any situation regardless of the benefit to us or threat against us and expect that we rise to our feet and proclaim that we "support the troops"?

I hate to say this- but I don't support the troops. How can I when there has not been articulated a clear mission? Of course I don't want to see casualties and won't slander our soldiers. But this has gone too far. We have had for some time, a completely out of control foreign policy and a State Department that seems in many ways to be acting in spite of our interests and in some cases clearly against them. Get ready to accomodate yourselves to the hordes of North African "freedom fighters" that we'll be expected to welcome with open arms- we'll be feeding them soon and training them to take over our jobs.

I don't recognize this country today as the one I grew up in.

713 @704

As others said, support for the troops should be unconditional.

That said, there's a part of me that thinks we're getting to the point where large amount of our fine men and women in uniform need to start questioning orders from or supposed CinC (on vacation), particularly the folks in the top ranks. Personally, i'm to the point were I would fully support our military telling the jackass to shove it. Sorry, but IMO he's crossed the line and respect for the office no longer applies to him by any stretch of the imagination.

Agree about the CiC being AWOL. How long do you think these fine men and women would last when they defie orders?

716 How can I be asked to "support the troops" when the mission they've been given is to make way for the rise of the Islamic Caliphate? Everything points to this being the case.

Seriously. There is a point where I as a citizen am responsible for speaking up. I can't support this. They're not even trying to pretend that this action is in our interest. This is insane.

717 To Ronster: I will answer your hello.
To sartana: I will answer to you also.
To: everyone else
I'm not sure how this will work.
I read all the comments up to 719. I also join in the drinking and watching the moon.Somehow that and the tree out back fit in nicely.
This blog has it's own sense of humor. Sometimes it's juvinille(?), sometimes its dark skary. Socks (I think that is wat ya'll call it) make it difficutl to figure out sometimes.
The troops are our son's and daughters. Our neighbors sons daughers. They are not robots, but real life people. They have they're doubts and concerns. they also leave they're sons and daughters behind.
They have faith that the polliiticians, as a whole,willnot sacrafice their lives for politicial gain. Some times this is not he case.
We take our selves seriously ( with abit of humor), but all know what it CAN mean.
They are the ones that give ya'll (me too) the freedom to say what we will. and with the internet, etc. to have it sent all over the world.
No.Ya'll desire not to respect he pre sent. Do so in your own way.
Do not disrespect or tar the US military with that brush.
I thank them for the freedom to make this post.

719 Hey Sartana, get fucked.
The Troops are kicking ass and taking names, with one hand tied behind their backs. And I support them wholeheartedly, because they are killing wannabe-jihadis on a daily basis.
I don't know who the fuck you are or where you came from, but I support The Troops 100%, in spite of the shit 'leadership' that currently controls foreign policy, whatever that means as of 11:30pm Pacific, March 19th 2011.
They are fighting for civilization, believe it or not, with the political odds stacked against them. What they are doing might make it easier for my kids, but that's out ofThe Troops'hands because of milquetoast fag ass liberals who are actively trying to take our nation down.
String that fat fuck mikey moore up and skin him, along with a whole bunch of anti-American bastards who make their $$ off the security that The Troops give them, day in and out.
God Bless the Troops, and God Bless America.
