    Well Mr. McNerny... agreed that Ghaddafi is a brutal dictator, but how many of those are around the world? With Iraq a case could be made that aside from the massacre that Saddam Hussein was committing over there, he was also a huge threat to 40% of our oil imports in Saudi Arabia.

    We only get 5% of our oil from Libya. What "huge" threat to our national security is he? Answer... NONE!

    Still, if Obama really wants to "free" the oppressed people of the world from these tyrants, why not Iran? The Iranian youth have been slaughtered for 2 years while on Obama's watch! And yet he was virtually silent on Iran.

    No sir, I contend to you that there are other reasons why Obama is all of a sudden jumping in with NATO in Libya. Research George Soros' Open Society Institue and how he's funding all these uprisings in N. Africa.

    Wake up people! You're being bamboozled!

    Going in without leadership is not a strategy.

    Also, I am tired of Obama making it sound like NATO is in charge when France left NATO many years ago. We nned to be in charge of our own military, PERIOD!
