The Evil Empire has launched yet another illegal war:
The U.S. Navy fires the first U.S. Tomahawk cruise missiles against Libyan leader’s Muammar al-Qaddafi’s air defenses Saturday, a military source tells Fox News.
Where does Obama think he got the authorization to launch this attack? Like George W. Bush, Obama pretties up his illegal acts with piles of self-congratulatory double-talk:
“Our consensus was strong, and our resolve is clear. The people of Libya must be protected, and in the absence of an immediate end to the violence against civilians our coalition is prepared to act, and to act with urgency,” President Barack Obama said in Brasilia, Brazil, on the first day of a three-country Latin American tour.
I suppose the people of Libya are more important than the people of Yemen and Bahrain, whose governments are killing them, too — but the US Fifth Fleet is stationed in Bahrain, and President Saleh of Yemen is a US puppet, so don’t expect DC to do anything about those dictators. Some dictators are better than others.
An overwhelming majority of Americans are opposed to US intervention in Libya — but then, our betters in DC ignore us on other issues, such as illegal immigration.
Isn’t it wonderful to live in a peaceful democracy?
