OBAMA: 'Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world'...

BUSH: 'American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger'...
Kliphnote:Is this Obama's "Good War" or the "Dumb War". When Bush did this in Iraq, for more reasons, it was Dumb. How many more country's are we going to attack because their leaders are killing the civilians?
Iran, Bahrain. China, Syria, etc. Let the bombings begin. I'm sure the leftheads will defend Obama, some how!
U.S. Tomahawk Cruise Missiles Hit Targets in Libya
Pentagon: 112 Missiles Fired at More Than 20 Targets Inside Libya
March 19, 2011
More than 112 Tomahawk cruise missiles struck over 20 targets inside Libya today in the opening phase of an international military operation the Pentagon said was aimed at stopping attacks led by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and enforcing a U.N.-backed no-fly zone.
So I decided to head to the fever swamp of Daily Kos to see what they were saying about OBAMA'S ILLEGAL WAR FOR OIL!!!! Just as I suspected, this is a good war.
Comment of the day on that post is this:
The negative comments about this operation are shocking really. My friend is a Red Cross doctor in Algeria and she told me Gaddafi's forces wiped out a hospital treating rebels. The hospital had more than 29 sick children. Why should the world stand back and allow a mad man murder his own people?
Funny, the Kos Kidz were quite content to let Saddam Hussein murder his own people.
Anti-war protesters arrested near White House
WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than 100 anti-war protesters, including the man who leaked the Pentagon Papers, were arrested outside the White House on Saturday in demonstrations marking the eighth anniversary of the U.S.-led war in Iraq.
The protesters, some shouting anti-war slogans and singing "We Shall Not Be Moved," were arrested after ignoring orders to move away from the gates of the White House. The demonstrators cheered loudly as Daniel Ellsberg, the former military analyst who in 1971 leaked the Pentagon's secret history of the Vietnam War that was later published in major newspapers, was arrested and led away by police.
In New York City, about 80 protesters gathered near the U.S. military recruiting center in Times Square, chanting "No to war" and carrying banners that read, "I am not paying for war" and "Butter not guns."
