Mr. O'Bombers' War

Advertisement

Barack Obama who ran on a platform of ending his predecessor's wars has apparently decided he wants his own war. As candidate Obama, he felt Congress should have a role in such decisions. As President O'Bomber, he thinks he can ignore Congress.

Like his predecessors O'Bomber is starting out with a bombing campaign. He hasn't said whether he will send Marines back to the shores of Tripoli if the bombing campaign fails to cause a surrender. Bombing didn't produce a surrender in Vietnam and Iraq. Muammar Gaddafi doesn't seem any more likely to relinquish power because of a bombing campaign than Saddam Hussein was.

Barack O'Bomber claims he is acting because the Libyan government has attacked those protesting the government, but Libya isn't the only government to use violence to put down protests.

Syria has been accused of using violence against protesters. Will O'Bomber also attack Syria? It would be easy considering we already have troops in neighboring Iraq. They could be moved out of Iraq and into Syria.

Will O'Bomber attack Iran which reportedly has been putting down mass protests? He could use it as an excuse to take out Iran's nuclear facilities. Prior to the election O'Bomber said he considered Iran a "tiny country" even though it's the 17th most populous nation in the world with a population is 78% that of Nazi Germany, a country which conquered Europe. from the Atlantic's to near Moscow.

China has killed protesters before. Does that mean the U.S. should consider attacking China?

I'm worried that if Gaddafi does give in to the bombing campaign, O'Bomber and the other Western Imperialists will think they can do the same thing in any country with a form of government they disapprove of. That is if they are really motivated by Gaddafi's treatment of his subjects rather than his oil.

If NATO is really concerned about injustice, why didn't it intervene in Darfur?

If O'Bomber succeeds in destroying the Libyan military will he or the Europeans spend years reestablishing order setting up a new government? Or will they let it become a lawless country like Somalia"

The most disturbing aspect of O'Bomber's action is his failure to consult Congress like Lyndon Johnson did before bombing North Vietnam and George W. Bush did before bombing Saddam Hussein. Both of those presidents took the lead in getting the U.S. involved in a war. O'Bomber seems to be following the orders of the European governments who get their oil from Libya.

Regardless of whether or not Barack Obama was born in Hawaii or not, he was born a British subject because his father was a British subject. Unless he formally renounced that citizenship he may still be a British subject and may be following the orders of his Queen in determining how to respond to Libya.

Those who like to protest America involvement in foreign wars need to start protesting now instead of waiting until the Marines land in Tripoli.

It's official! Obomber has launched more cruise missles than all other Nobel Peace Prize winners combined.

so first you are okay with war, then you hate it? (This isn't even a war?)

He's also acting with several other allied countries, lest I remind you all. It's not a decision he sounded like he took lightly. Did Bush bring up a vote when he decided to declare war in 2002, or whenever that was, with Iraq? No. And I'm willing to bet none of you said ANYTHING at that point. Not that I'd EVER compare the two presidents...just pointing out the irony. He's not sending troops there (or so I gathered, last time I heard), and he's not declaring war. He's helping people who are being murdered because of a tyrant. I don't like it at all that innocent civilians have been attacked in this raid, I will say that...no excuses. Wouldn't you all want help in that situation? I believe none of you could even imagine what it's like anyway, but if the tides were turned, and we couldn't defend ourselves, would you brush off the idea of outside help? Let me guess, most of you will start with your patriotic "We'rethemightyUSofAandwecan'tbetouched" garbage, but...just think about it.

I also think Reasonmclucus brought up some very important things worth thinking about. There are a few inaccuracies in his post, and the suggestion that President Obama is somehow carrying out the wishes of an entirely ceremonial, and politically speaking powerless British Monarch is absurd.

First the two inaccuracies:

The President has explicitly stated that he will not send ground troops into Libya. (source: http://edition.cnn.com/video/#/video/bestoftv/2011/03/19/exp.sot.obama.libya.us.strike.cnn?iref=allsearch ) You've stated in other posts on this site, that Obama can't be trusted because his predecessors Bush and Clinton were liars. Could Obama back on his word? Sure! But the decision to do so would be immensely unpopular here in the US, and it would be political suicide. It would certainly cost him the upcoming election and could lead to impeachment hearings. At the very least there would be a vote to withdraw ground troops or refuse funding for ground troops in Congress. There is no real support for ground troops. It's very unrealistic to assume there will be Marines storming the shores of Tripoli again given that 70% of Americans are opposed to the use of ground troops according to polls conducted over the weekend.

Also, Reasonmclucus wrote that Obama ran on a platform of ending both his predecessors wars (Iraq and Afghanistan). This is incorrect. Obama ran on a platform of ending the war in Iraq in order to re-focus US military efforts on Afghanistan. Obama made it very clear when he was running that he would remain committed to Afghanistan. Somehow there was and still is this notion that Obama was the "peace candidate", and wanted to end both wars. This notion is just blatantly false. Obama was pretty hawkish on Afghanistan and Pakistan during the campaign.

The only reason the repubs are whining is because their cohorts aren't getting uberrich.

If republican contractors stood to gain billions of dollars through humanitarian efforts, faux news would be chiming about how we are doing the lord's work and their 44 million couch dwelling viewrs would be bleating their support. But, nope, we are only protecting innocent strangers and repubs hate that crap.

My question remains: What does O'Bomber really believe or believe in?

The only thing I can see, is that he believes he wants to be President, and a celebrity.

Actually, I think this blog raises some interesting and good questions.

What is our rationale for getting involved in other countries militarily? Is there any consistency to it? Why do we accept human rights violations in China, but make a big deal out of them in other countries? If we are to get involved whenever there is an injustice going on, we'll have to get involved in a lot of places. Are we ready for that level of involvement? And, why didn't Obama consult with Congress?

This is just another in a long line of gobble-di-goop splashed on the floor by the janitor. The author would make it sound as though the President unilaterally attacked Libya. Mr. Mucous, this is one of your poorer efforts. You should maybe engage in some research before you put finger to keyboard and attempt to gain some slight bit of insight into the subject matter. You get a D minus. The O'bomber thing did make me crack a slight smile.

What I learned from this post is that you don't like Obama. That's all.

"may be following the orders of his Queen in determining how to respond to Libya"

You are an anxious man who needs to learn to regulate his emotions. That statement about the Queen is preposterous. 1000% ridiculous. Not even in the same galaxy as the planet Sanity. Your brand of reason came to you from that alternate universe where Mr. Spock has a beard. It's the anti-matter of rationality.

Take a nap, then come back and re-read what you wrote. If you still think it makes sense, then see your doctor.

If you're serious, lol.

If you're not, bigger lol. What a waste of time. Good satire, though.

Honestly, your blog is dumb, dumb, dumb. You haven't the fortitude or knowledge to write a blog. Destroy your computer, and the urge to ever write again. Stupidity knows no bounds, evidently.

This is the STUPIDEST blog ever. Sorry, there is no reason at all with you. Grow up, get a job, stop crying.

Nazis and birther comments in the same blog? Sure, you are serious.

However, you actually got a laugh from me for your use of "O'Bomber." Usually used for his basketball game, this time it was funny. I just wonder if there is a return policy for the Peace Prize.

Despite the laugh, you still get a Godwin flag.

Dennis Kucinich is piping hot about this. He said Obama is not a "king" and where does he get off not consulting congress. Obama is.......I don't know what he is. A community organizer gone bad? Who knows. He's let politics run his entire show.
