Why are we bombing Libya?

I don’t know, I don’t think our president does either.

My latest post for WNYC is on the empty suit president and his minor war:

That we know zero about our purpose in Libya, the president’s rationale toward this war, what we may consider a win, all of it actually fits in with that empty suit who campaigned to be our president and who, in a time of confusion we actually chose. Are we removing Gadhafi? And replacing him with who, exactly? Will we build up the areas we bomb afterward? Is a Libyan democracy the end-goal? Do we have goals? Why is our president still in Brazil when we’re at war?

All good questions Obama will answer with a “let me be clear” followed by no clarity at all.

Because people wanted a no-fly zone. That’s why we’re bombing Libya. I love how Britain and France are straight up after regime change (see Brit missiles into Quaddafi’s compound) and we keep saying we just want to stop him from slaughtering his people. Bringing CAS onto all of his armor and clearing the way for the rebels is _not_ protecting civilians.

Let me be clear, Barry has no clue.

we’d be alot better off if Hilary was president….as scary as that sounds.

Wow…I never would have thought you were at that age in life where you thought people who disagreed with you could just “suck it up.”

Posted by: James at March 22, 2011 at 9:59 pm

James, I don’t understand the “suck it up” reference.

Oh, sorry, I thought it was to me, not to the 18 yr old who doesn’t think we should question the president.
