Obama Speech

Sooooo the war in Libya is justified, but the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are not?

Quote:
"To brush aside America's responsibility as a leader and ó more profoundly ó our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are," Obama said. "Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different. And as president, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action."

Re: Obama Speech

I think Bill O hit the nail on the head when he said that he believes Obama simply has a different view of the world now. But the comments he has made compared to his actions are laughable.

Re: Obama Speech

He took a shot at Bush. Saying, 'Frankly we tried that in Iraq. It taken 8 years and nearly a trillion dollars so far..' Not a direct quote, but he was speaking on the topic of overthrowing the Libyan government and occupying the country, rebuilding with a democratic government.

Anyone notice that he didn't sound as smooth as he usually does? It seems like his presidential speeches aren't as charismatic and smooth as his speeches were during the election. I am pretty sure that he feels the heat, knowing people aren't happy with him..

Re: Obama Speech

The second one is exactly how I felt watching the speech last night. "Non war," but yet you're shooting Ghadaffi's (or however you spell it) forces with Tomahawk missile's and dropping bombs from F-15s??? Word Pause Word. Almost as if he is questioning his own speech or doesn't know what the hell he is talking about...

Re: Obama Speech

This is what is not making any sense whatsoever. People of North Korea and China are being killed and mistreated far worse than what is happening in Libya, yet we do nothing to them? If this isn't over oil I don't know what it is. Again folks, we are fighting France's war for them. Italy and France are one of the largest consumers of Libya's oil. This is total BS.

War has cost the U.S. so far $580,000,000.00 so far. Yes those are correct zeros. Over half a trillion! It has only been over a week so far! Bush is starting to look like a genius.
