Oh Goodie!! Obama to "Install Democracy" in Libya

Leaving aside what Obama (or Erdogan) considers to be "democracy," this is just plain stupid.

...According to a White House readout of a Monday night call between Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the two leaders "underscored their shared commitment to the goal of helping provide the Libyan people an opportunity to transform their country, by installing a democratic system that respects the people’s will."

The term "installing" suggests the goal of regime change.

The White House was emphatic Tuesday in insisting there was no change to the U.S. military mission.

Do the goats get to vote?

I guess this President didn't even have the need to lie to us before he gave the go ahead to launch an unprevoked attack on an insignificant country in the Middle East.

We'll never learn.

Didn't we try this in WWI and helped bring about WWII?

Maybe we should worry about our own democracy and how it is weakened when the President starts bombing another country with no congressional approval. How about that, Obozo?

I don't care what the U.N. thinks about Libya. Obama answers to the American people through our congressional represenatives, not to some world government goons at the U.N.!

”…installing a democratic system that respects the people’s will."

And which people would that be, Mr. President…?

The Warfallah? Masrata? Al-Majabra? Qaddafi? Mesratha? The Berbers? Nafousah? Tuareg? Tebo?
And that’s just a sampling.

There are dozens more groups and sub-groups – not to mention Jews, immigrants and remaining Al-Qaeda members.
