The Liberal Libya Hypocrisy

By 45 Comments 905 views

So Obama enters a war against a foe who had no intention of attacking us, where no vital U.S. interests were in jeopardy, and then after the 60 days are up he illegally keeps us in that war lying to us about our intentions (since when do tanks and convoys fly?) but it’s all a-ok because the dictator is dead?

Obama promises US “bugging out” amidst increasing violence

By 69 Comments 559 views

On the heels of Obama’s version of a “Mission Accomplished speech” just three days ago, apparently some militants in Afghanistan are registering their thumbs up by executing twin suicide bombings in the following days. On Friday, ten people were killed, 24 wounded, by a bicycle bomb detonated in a busy bazaar in Khad Abad district of the northern province of Kunduz. 24 hours later, a car bombing at a hospital in Logar province, just south of Kabul, killed 60, wounded 120. The hospital attack has been called “unprecedented” in the history of the near-decade-long Afghan war by officials.

President Karzai, criticizing Obama’s politically expedient announcement of the US “bug out”, issued a statement stating that that militancy was on the rise in both his country and the Middle East region.

So, you’re a liberal who protested against President Bush for being an imperial megalomanic out to control the world and wars against all those oppose him.

By 7 Comments 337 views

Just a bit of happy news… there are some issues where the deeply divided parties can come to some sort of an agreement. And in this case, it’s an official slap on the wrist of the POTUS for his arrogance in ignoring the mandates of the War Powers Resolution. See also Curt’s post on Congress… Read more »
