    Default No, it wasn't bush league

    The political skill of the administration in dealing with Libya and setting up a no fly zone is to be applauded. Instead of acting unilaterally, or "Bush League" as I call it. They get the Arab League to come out first and endorse action. The UN security council votes for action, with likely backroom maneuvering for Russia and China to abstain. They get France to take a lead. They are working on getting other Arab countries to maintain the no fly zone. There will debate on whether we got in too early, too late, shouldn't of got involved etc. The no spin zone will be doing it's spin, and the other right wing talking comedians... er ...heads will find fault, they always do. How this turns out only time will tell. But there was skill on how it started. No, it wasn't bush league.

    No, it definitely wasn't "Bush" league, ie "the Cowboy way" where it took us 3 years to "rush to war" in Iraq "for oil"..

    Anyone else notice that France has contracts to build 2 nuke plants in Tunisia (now in turmoil), that are set to be operational in 2019? Also that a huge solar farm is planned for the Tunisian desert and to be powerlined to southern Europe. In addition the French are one of Libya's biggest customers?

    No, this is "The Chicago Way" where you can get your own personal little gang war for cheap energy, oops, "to spread democracy" in about a month. But it looks like this "war for oil" will be ok with the left, since it was started by the socialists against another socialist?

    No, the current POTUS simply waffled and wrung his hands and refused to do anything against a staunch supporter (never mind the staunch supporter is a butcher and terrorist thug) until world pressure forced his hand. Even the Washinton Post derides his lack of leadership in an above-the-fold editorial. I will give it to you lost, you got one part right--even the left and left-loving media is questioning BHO's abject lack of decisiveness. Even Hillary urged doing something long before our wishy washy lightweight leader.

    Just because someone isn't jumping in with guns blazing, willy-nilly, without taking time to consider the consequences....doesn't mean they're indecisive.

    All the Bush disciples should take notes on this operation. Just up to this point, I'm sure they're in awe of how a military/state operation should be run.

    Yes, Hilary urged action sooner. Gates urged more restraint. The president waited until a multinational concensus, including the Arab league, solidified against Kahdafi, then acted. As a result, its not just American taxpayers and American troops carrying the load. Pretty nice, eh? The conservatives out there ought to applaud his carefully planned actions.

    that 'independent' moniker that you so blithely fling around must give you a real sense of "I'm so above it all", because with each post you become more delusional. And if Bill want's to give me crap for making a joke about a post that is his decision, not the class tattletales.

    1) Please elaborate on what you feel is delusional.
    2) I have no idea what Bill or to what joke you are talking about. Who's being delusional now?
    3) Not sure how being independent makes one above it all???
    4) was there anything untrue in my statement that makes you think it was delusional? If not, maybe I'm not the one who's delusional?

    It should be obvious now that there was a great amount of work being done behind the scenes leading up to the events yesterday. Not only are we not carrying all the load. But, not seen around the world as blind aggressors again. And yes the conservatives ought to applaud his carefully planned actions. Just as the President George Bush carefully orchestrated the the first gulf war. But they won't. I recall Rush, a day after Obama's election, calling the recession "Obama's Recession" as a case in point. So much poison. And so it goes.

    It may well be the cleanest military event ever, but we do NOT know that yet.
