Okay. We’re Bombing Libya.

    Now what? After playing Hamlet for a period of some weeks, a supremely disengaged President Obama has been nagged into action on Libya. Over the weekend, US and allied forces hit Libya with a barrage of cruise missiles which was followed up by airstrikes directed not only at infrastructure supporting the Libyan air force but also against the Libyan army What has been more notable | Read More »

    Farrakhan To Obama On Libya: Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?

    (Via The Other McCain*) Yikes. When Barack Obama has lost Louis Farrakhan- Well, you know the rest: “I warn my brother do you let these wicked demons move you in a direction that will absolutely ruin your future with your people in Africa and throughout the world… You can’t order [Qaddafi] to step down and get out. Who the hell do you think you are?” | Read More »

    Where’s the antiwar movement?

    Below I’m going to answer some questions asked by the Brittanica Blog (via Instapundit), in the order that they were given at the end of a blog post.  To give the background, the author of said blog post has noticed something that the rest of you knew already: based on recent events, the Democratic party never really gave a tinker’s dam about the Iraq War | Read More »

    Obama Experiment Failing

    At first blush I was jumping on the conservative’s band wagon saying, “Where the hell is Obama on Libya and the crisis in Japan?” Then it dawned on me that so long as Obama is keeping quiet, America is far better off. Other people were upset that Obama appeared on ESPN to make his predictions in the NCAA basketball tournament, rather than focusing his attention | Read More »

    Libya Update

    So, who are the rebels? This is the same as asking if we win, then who wins in Libya? This is a really big unknown. Surfing through all of the news reports on the Libyan Civil War, the story that we would expect to see is the very one we do not. The one definite thing we know is that when the British sent in | Read More »

    The Libyan Kerfuffle

    Undoubtedly, the Obama apologenstia will come up with some lame excuses fo explain how the Dawdler in Chief suddenly became bellicose. I’m also looking forward to some of the explanations they will have for us as to why Obama is using military force to ?stop? Gaddhafi, or whatever it is we are doing.  I’m sure right now the Journolisters and Democratic spokesmodels are busily trying to think up reasons | Read More »

    What is America’s *Goal* in Libya?

    Update by Jeff 3/20/11 22:15: According to Jake Tapper, it now appears that SecDef Gates is warning against setting any goals for this action whatsoever. How’s that for clarity and sound military strategy? Update by Jeff 3/20/11 18:10: The muddling continues, as it’s being reported that SecDef Gates, who initially opposed any action in Libya, is now opposing any action that would specifically target Qaddafi. | Read More »

    Darned *straight*, Glenn.

    People like Andrew Sullivan were dumb rubes to actually believe that any functional candidate for President would actually believe in the progressive anti-war strategy (let alone implement it, once they were in office), and you told them so.  Heck, I told them so – admittedly, when I wrote that it was before the financial meltdown turned what had been a moderately tough election campaign cycle | Read More »

    Qaddafi reminded who the weak horse is after all?

    So.  Now that the UN has authorized a no-fly zone in Libya – which is another way of saying that we have decided to create a no-fly (and no-drive) zone in Libya, using the UN for cover – it’s being reported that the Qaddafi regime has immediately declared a cease-fire.  As Glenn Reynolds put it: “Blink.” If true: well, we should have done this a | Read More »
