Why the United States!
The Libyan people are at some point, are going to have to figure this out on their own, or without the United States. It is not that I personally do not want to help Libya, but we just can not afford it, plain and simple. Now that we are in Libya, how do we get out? Somebody please tell me how. How are we going to save the day for these people and get out, who is going to pay the bill. Who do we bill for the crashed F15? Nobody? We will as usual, get stuck for the bill. and more than likely be accused of villainous behavior by other Muslim country's. If you have not noticed, this is the third Muslim country we have had military action in. However you slice the pie, however you want to label this action, be it a humanitarian action, it is still WAR. Our soldiers will be just as DEAD, or just as captured and tortured. It is still a dirty business. What really is going to hurt, is when people get up and criticize and demonize the United States. We will be criticized by the same countries who we give millions of dollars in aid. The sad part is even in war, with exception of WWII, we have to be political correct in how we execute a conflict. If a non-combatant is killed, your a war criminal, that is if you are the United States of America. If your a terrorist, well it is OK because the terrorist have been oppressed by the land of the devil. If a United States soldier offends a Muslim prisoner, he is insensitive to their needs, if a Taliban beheads a United States citizen, soldier or Christian, this is ok, because he does so because the Koran told him it is ok. So it is basically impossible to execute any type of war, conflict or humanitarian operation without being demonized by the outside world.
In closing, do I want to be in Libya, NO, do I understand why, yes I do, however there are other nations that can execute this action. We can help with logistics, intelligence and surveillance, but nothing else. We will get strapped with the whole enchilada at some point and again be labeled as the "GREAT SATAN"
and get saddled with the bill, while everyone else goes home.
Until next time....God Bless and God Bless America
