    another victory for the Obama foreign policy. what dumbass george wouldnt and couldnt do, Barack did.
    Hillary Clinton was there earlier this week pledging our friendship with the new rebel government. while this is no guarantee of success, it does stabilize oil prices and the region, considerably.
    Reelect OBAMA. send the clown circus back to their tent in Tampa. :biggrin1:

    I was waiting to see who would take the lead on this.....
    And I could not agree with you more!
    This may be a good year that foreign policy is being utilize to Obama favor but as we all know he will not get the credit where credit is due!

    Seriously, obama's foreign policy is to thank for this? No, thank NATO and the libya people for ending this horrible persons reign of terror. The Obama administration hasnt received any confirmation of his death yet. If they(obama admin) were involved as heavily as you say they were they'd have known about it by now.

    I believe the OP is mistaken about who carried this out.

    Also, a little early to say the region / oil prices are stable don't you think?

    I think you should primarily thank the UK and France.

    I don't think we should really thank anyone. We, once again, interfered in a region that did not want our involvement and violated our own Constitution by allowing the Executive branch to wage war without Congressional approval. I am happy there is one less tyrant in the world, but I am disappointed in the methods and force used to depose him.

    The downfall was largely the work of the Libyan people themselves (it's a civil war). France and the UK provided the necessary back up under NATO and the UN.The Libyan people now have the where-withall to determine their own future and good luck to them!!

    It is a victory and even if he gets the credit, it won't matter since this election will be decided on domestic issues and not foreign policy.

    Fine dude, but no matter how much you can't stand to give Obama credit for anything, keep in mind that Rick Perry will not even get out of the primaries and will never be president. So you get to keep him in the most do nothing gubernatorial seat in the Country.
    Lucky for the rest of us.

    You shouldn't be so fast to discount the importance of the American role in Libya.

    Remember when they used to call him Gaddafi Duck?

    Bugs Bunny: Say, doc, are you trying to get yourself in trouble with the law? This ain't wabbit huntin' season.
    Elmer Fudd: It's not?
    Bugs: No, it's duck huntin' season.
    Daffy Duck: That, sir, is an in-mitigated frab-rication. It's wabbit season.
    Bugs: Duck season.
    Daffy: Wabbit season.
    Bugs: Duck season.
    Daffy: Wabbit season.
    Bugs: Duck season.
    Daffy: Wabbit season.
    Bugs: Wabbit season.
    Daffy: Duck season.
    Bugs: Wabbit season.
    Daffy: I say it's duck season. And I say fire!


    Guess it was duck season.

    Yet again another success for the Obama Administration.

    Another Victory for a New Approach to War

    WASHINGTON — The final end to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s rule is the latest victory for a new American approach to war: few if any troops on the ground, the heavy use of air power, including drones, and, at least in the case of Libya, a reliance on allies.

    Only a few months ago, the approach had few fans: not the hawks in Congress who called for boots on the ground, not the doves who demanded a pullout and not the many experts who warned of a quagmire. Most pointedly, critics mocked President Obama for “leading from behind,” a much-repeated phrase that came from an unnamed administration official in an article in The New Yorker.

    But the last six months have brought a string of successes. In May, American commandos killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. In August, Tripoli fell, and Colonel Qaddafi fled. In September, an American drone strike killed Anwar al-Awlaki, a top Qaeda operative and propagandist, in Yemen. And on Thursday, people were digesting images of the bloodied body of Colonel Qaddafi, an oppressive strongman who spent decades flaunting his pariah status.

    So much for the swine Charles Krauthammer and his accusation of Obama 'Leading From Behind'.

    Do what we think is best or we will bomb your sovereign nation with disregard as to what our own Constitution grants us power to do.

    how ironic, the best you can. that is exactly what Obama is doing, yet you are still unable to grasp that. and yes, dandelion, Clinton's presence in Libya was to reward the rebels and also remind them that if they become Gaddafi-like, it could happen to them too. the crocodile tears that some of you shed for Gaddafi are so smarmy and phony it is repulsive. those of you worried about his humanity completely ignore what happened over Lockerbie , Scotland in 1983 at the behest of Gaddafi, and the hundreds of terrorist attacks on Americans and allies he either planned or executed since 1969. Oh, wait, some of you are barely out of elementary school. and some of you dont read. and some of you hate Obama. and some of you only care about the oil, wherever it is. again, this is a victory for Obama. He deserves our reelection.
