    We could always LIE about why we are going to war!

    ^ huh?

    Actually, that’s quite slick Glenn. The first cell said everything about that issue that ever needed to be known. The second cell is mostly true and there certainly is a lot of worry of the reports stating that portions of the rebels are actually Al Qaida. That’s certainly a fright.

    Ah, but war is never simple which is why there is always an element of wisdom in those warry of waging it. (working on my alliteration skills, lol… and yes, I may have just implied that some of you libs bare a bit of wisdom in not wanting to go to war so easily. Though the complete write-off, not so much. Call it a necessary evil at times and certainly, I agree, it’s not always necessary or warranted. Just saying.)

    excellent opinion at dated 3/30/11 by Cal Thomas…”Mideast Nonsense: Can We Start Being Honest?”

    noting that last Friday the NYTimes “Islamist Group is Rising Force in New Egypt…. (Muslim Brotherhood, whose motto is “Allah is our objective, the Prophet is our leader, the Quran is our law; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope”)……. and that the London Daily Telegraph reported that the leader of the Libya rebellion said that some of the rebels have ties to al Quaeda……the writer’s analysis is= “while Obama fiddles, the Middle East burns”……

    (and IMO, the radicals take over, country by country) (and the Magician in the White House will find some way of blaming the Loss of the Mideast as a friend to the democratic West is GW Bush’s fault!)

    Disgusting said, “Muslim Brotherhood, whose motto is “Allah is our objective, the Prophet is our leader, the Quran is our law; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope”…….

    Sounds a whole lot like “Onward Christian Soldiers, marching as to War…”

    Just more pure Republican hypocrisy from McCoy.

    Here he’s against Obama because Obama decided to help the U.N. allies attack Libya.

    Last month he was against Obama because Obama wasn’t attacking Libra (or Egypt).

    Bluejays… as a funny coined line in far too many choices… as the Pastor either cannot read, read well or just likes having someone else do it for him as he rips apart the text (usually a total Eisegesis)…


    And there are underlines between each of the words starting with after “onward” that you will have to add back in as this sight translates that as a command to italicize.

    Bullwinkle… you really don’t read well do you? Or is there an actual medical difficulty that we should be aware of as to show some empathy?

    Oddly enough, I was making a similar point as yourself last week against libs/lefties like yourself (though mostly as just playing devil’s advocate). I have no issue with the moral argument of helping those in need, especially if they come a calling.

    However, you blast Reps for doing the same. So pot calling the kettle black. I can’t stand the partisan game where it’s okay so long as your side does something but if the opposite does it then it’s an act of evil. Sickens me actually.

    Look, it’s apparent from my many posts on this general subject that I have sympathy for the situation and actually for BO on this one. I just think his course in such a desire for noble action was unwise (not going to Congress & not knowing your ally and not ensuring the security of your tech and weaponry, etc.).

    Finally, back to you not reading and comprehending well, at which point did I say Fox? I think I said British news… oh yes, by God, I did. How about that. And look… the next comment afterward was even more specific than mine! WOW!

    Look, I could lash out with the whole MSNBC brainless slave thing… but that doesn’t get anyone any where, nor would I have proof. In reality, I would just hope that you’d take a wider, fuller look (from both and/or all sides) and use logical deduction and verifying of facts and make an informed opinion… not just spout off drooling rhetoric and ad hominem attacks.

    The fact that you have said more recently and even made some points in your comments above prove your are capable, at least of thought. Now, it’s just about being willing, reasonable and rational.

    And fair final point Anthony.

    I think what happens, and it’s more than reasonable, is that as we receive more information we tend to change our minds and opinions (that is if we care to actually receive it).

    Just like most libs here are wholly against war, or at least when led by Reps, and last week were equally chastising McCoy and others who were more willing to act with the rebels against Gadhaffi… now they are defending BO’s action.

    But I think what we fail to do is allow anyone to change their mind on something, especially after they’ve become more informed. If that were the case then they’d be no point in debating anything as we have been given our singular course for which we cannot, ever, deviate from even if it sends us off a cliff or into a wall or into the sun and we want to change course.

    So, last week all we knew was Gadhaffi is an evil dictator willingly slaughtering his own people, even rashly bombing innocents. What we know now is that within the rebels are Muslim extremists (al Qaeda specifically known) not just fighting but also getting access to our weapons and then taking it for their own separate purposes (fighting us and the rest of the infidels). And this has been reported in England multiple times (in tv news and print).

    Thus, armed with this new information, shouldn’t we then be wary of just how we help out and who we are helping? That’s the real ultimate point.

    Oh… and even a bigger question is how come our news agencies (oh those brilliant, fair and elite liberal news agents) haven’t reported it at all?

    Egypt is already sliding into the abyss of Muslim Brotherhood planned theocracy of Jihad…. Mubarek did keep them under control….and gave concessions when the public protests became daily world news…..where is a truly pro-democracy leader with power to keep the religious fanatics from seizing power?????

    Libya is ripe for the fanatics to rise into control….today NATO leaders said they will not arm the Libyan rebels… a wise decision….and a rebuke to Obama, a leader most Americans do not know enough about on his beliefs and goals…..and who has spent 2 years bashing the American people and the American form of government … to the world. All the while favoring Islamists and doing harm to Israel, the only “sister” government in the Mideast that is pro-democracy and friendly to the USA and the Judeo-Christian principles.

    (Israeli Jews have collected millions to aid Japan….a trait of the “Bible people”)

    I don’t believe in the integrist threat anymore. Its days are numbered.

    Why? For someone to take power, there needs to be at least a few people (suckers) ready to believe in it, even in a case of dictatorship. Well, thanks to the information technologies right now, people are more and more educated. They see people different from themselves but also different from the evil westerner extremist leaders use to scare them into fanatism. They are much more likely to think by themselves now.

    Any dictator, secular or not, needs to first have a grip on people’s minds. It’s becoming harder and harder.

    DJ: “Thus, armed with this new information, shouldn’t we then be wary of just how we help out and who we are helping? That’s the real ultimate point.”

    Agreed. But I was against our intervention even without considering how affiliated with Al Qaeda the rebels are.

    Even if we magically know they have no such affiliation, I don’t understand how we can afford to intervene, no matter how just the cause.

    I feel great pity for any masses under someone like Khadafy (my spelling du jour). But I also realize that we can’t fix everything.

    I still don’t know how we can send billions to build the militaries of Israel and Egypt each year when we’re trillions in debt.

    Khadafy was less of a threat to us than Saddam Hussein, so I think we should have expressed our displeasure, and sat this one out….just like we should have done with Iraq.

    I’ve never professed an understanding of economics, particularly on a global scale, but wouldn’t the trillions spent on Iraq (and now Libya), have benefited our economy at home?

    Regarding the news agencies…you need to watch their output more. Then you wouldn’t undermine your credibility like you did with your last comment.

    Disgustedtaxpayer, we forgive you.

    Now come back to our planet.

    And give up your idea that the Israelis want to make Jesus lord of the U.S.A.

    I wonder if those guys would have been taken seriously if their name was the Christian Brotherhood…

    DjG, I “READ” (believe it or not, I have read it and sung it before your kind suggestion.)

    So how does “Christian soldiers struggling against the followers of Satan and for the glory and the throne of God” differ substantially from Moslims fighting and dying for Allah? Christian crusades are just as bloody and violent as Moslim jihads. They’re two sides of the same coin.

    “Kill a Commie for Christ” still sounds a whole lot like “Kill the Infidel, the Great Satan - USA” to me.
