This is my first pit thread, so it’s likely to be not angry enough.
I cannot believe that people in power (NATO, Congress, President) are seriously considering putting in place a no-fly zone over Libya! Hey, Democrats – remember Iraq? Do you want to have one of those on your head? Hey, Republicans – I thought we were broke! If we have enough money to start up a third war, we should be able to take some of the small change left over to fund childhood food programs here in the US, right?
I tend to vote for Democrats, but if Obama goes for this, I promise I will vote for the most viable third party available in my state, or I won’t vote for the president at all. I don’t care how close the election is – adding a completely unnecessary war to defending indefinite detention would convince me that both sides really are the same.
If Crab-daffy is really that awful, let someone else overthrow him. Germany? France? England? You’re all a lot closer and any spillover will effect you more than the US. Saudi Arabia? I’m looking at you. Let someone else take the heat for meddling in Middle Eastern affairs.
We should cut defense spending by two thirds so we don’t even think about these stupid overseas adventures any more.
