    i think the war in libya started because of switzerland they want to push through.. theyre the one who started the war in iraq also...now also pulling down america against syria...they are the main trigger of the middle east war.

    wasn't it several months ago that obama said our little adventure in libya would take "days, not weeks"? i bet a year from now it will still be dragging on. obama switched parties after nov. 2010. he should return his nobel peace prize. what a joke. the norwegians should have waited a couple years, instead of just handing the prize out based on hopes and dreams.

    Just because there isn't any actual U.S. Foot Soldiers on the ground doesn't mean that the U.S. is not engaged in some type of action in Libya. Case in point, any money spend in support of Libya, to me means, the U.S. is engaged in Libya. Why? because engagement means money, and the American tax payer has to endure that cost. So, any activity of any kind that is going to cost the American people money, "Needs Congressional Approval" in the eyes of the American people. I had enough of "War Mongering." Bring it to an end Mr. President. Do it Now!
