Exactly. And I like how you spelled Q'uadaffi's name.

I've just seen it that way in intelligent articles. And I try to stick to it consistently. I can't say it is right, though. Maybe we should just call him "Big Mo."

I'm pretty sure there was a ton of sarcasm involved there.

fd has a hard time contributing something of value to this conversation. I've chosen to ignore him until he has something constructive to say.

Re: Updated Title: World Revolution 2011

This whole dust up about the war being illegal or legal is nothing more than a few members of Congress not feeling the love from Obama. Truth is, most of them are glad the president didn't "consult" with them as they don't want to be in a pickle come election time for having approved yet another war with an uncertain outcome. I promise you if this thing blows over sooner rather than later and Khadaffy is eventually removed no one will really care and Obama, fairly or not, will look like a hero.

As far as precedent goes, and knowing Obama's style, I'm sure he studied history, among other things, to ensure he was in line with his predecessors. In 1986 Ronald Wilson Reagan bombed this very same country and even took out Khaddfy's home, without the powers of Congress backing him. Similiar ops in Bosnia and Haiti have also occured.

I just hope --really hope-- we can get out of there with no casualties.

Re: Updated Title: World Revolution 2011

The President does not need Congressional approval for peace-keeping operations, which is what the Libya action is. The President does need Congressional approval to go to war. There is a difference.

Further, the action in Libya was mandated by the UN, rather than being in violation of UN standards like some other American military actions.
