According to Stratfor, over 110 tomahawk missiles have hit Libya from US and British ships in the past hour or so. I can’t help but wonder where the shrieking is. When Bush attacked Iraq with nearly infinitely greater provocation than the one to go after Qaddafi, When Saddam had murdered hundreds of thousands of his own people, extincted the Marsh Arabs, used WMD’s on the Kurds and a list of horror to long to recount, American peaceniks where apoplectic.
Now that Obama has committed the US to a 3rd official war and what, a 5th war in total if you count Bahrain and other more covert actions one would imagine the same groups, Code Pink or at least tons of media attention on Cindy Sheehan when she goes and camps on the official Obama basketball court. If she does.
I expect to hear tens of thousands chanting: “Obama denied, people died” or, “Obama why talk-a lot when you can send in the Tomahawk”. I suppose that could be both supportive or sarcastic. In any case, I look forward to their return. Obama needs to know how his supporters made the previous administration, one a hundred times more competent than his own, that much more difficult to manage.
