Latest Libya Items
President Obama says he notes the "irony" of his being a Nobel Peace Prize recipient. No kidding - so does everyone else.
@-Text.noindent:It is clear that a major sector of the American public - both on the political right and the left - do not want America embroiled in another war in a Muslim land.
@-Text.noindent:President Obama's decision to take military action in Libya is unconstitutional ("Obama's illegal war," Comment & Analysis, Monday). There was no imminent threat to the United States from the tumult in Libya, nor were there U.S. citizens or interests requiring immediate military action.
The war to get rid of Col. Moammar Gadhafi, the Libyan fashion-plate wreck, is already running $100 million a day. The White House says it is not planning to request emergency funding - at least not yet. The Pentagon will have no choice in the matter. It will have to request supplemental funding when the meter hits $1 billion. In 10 days, that is. But what's $1 billion when we owe China $1.3 trillion - and the national debt meter keeps running at the rate of $4.12 billion a day, for a current total of almost $15 trillion? Federal spending is up to $3.5 trillion this year, with a deficit of $1.3 trillion.
It's no secret how the KGB was actively involved in bankrolling and furthering the radical student and hippie movements of the 1960s in hopes that stinky, stoned hippies and violent America-hating radicals like Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn and dupes in the Weathermen, Students for a Democratic Society and others would topple America or cause it great harm. Why do you think they call it dope?
Well, it's official. The President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, has asked the Nobel Prize Committee to take back President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize owing to Mr. Obama's missile strikes in Libya. The head of Russia's Liberal Democratic Party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, also has weighed in, and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is really in a snit. This is the best news Col. Moammar Gadhafi has had in weeks.
With some members of Congress already staging a minor rebellion against President Obama's decision to attack Libya, House Speaker John A. Boehner on Wednesday blasted the administration for "contradictory" statements and told the president to lay out concrete goals for U.S. action.
A top Navy official in the campaign in Libya on Wednesday said international forces were attacking government troops that have been besieging population centers in the North African nation.
The tensions and calculations involved in covering a war zone spilled out Tuesday in an unusual dispute between rival American television networks over a trip to assess damage to an attack on Moammar Gadhafi's compound in Libya.
