It hasn't been mentioned much here, but I hope Obama does not seize reins regarding Libya.
At first, it seemed he was doing just that by keeping a low profile about America's interest/involvement there. However, lately he has been pushing for a UN resolution to allow military action to support the rebels saying more forceful action may be needed including attacks against both loyal troops and naval vessels. Fine, support and push a UN resolution and if it passes, great.
But then what? Last time I checked a globe Europe was right across that pond called the Mediteranean, from Libya. They are the ones who get their oil from Libya and have a vested interest there.
Does anyone remember 1986? When we bombed Libya Europe refused to cooperate and made our planes fly 1,300 more miles to get there. Also, European countries all have military forces; great, use them. They don't spend as much money on their military because they sponge off us; we keep military forces in Europe to this day and they use that to their advantage. Uncle Sam cannot continue to be Uncle Sucker. We are always the ones who send the troops, planes, and ships to do the dirty work and watch our soldiers die, while everyone else sits back and lets us take the hit and pay for it. We are not the world's police force, nor are we the UN's police force. We are already in 2 Arab states and seen as invaders. Now we are contemplating going into a 3rd? No way.
