Jack Hunter: Obama’s Libyan War 'the same foreign policy insanity'

Our intervention in Libya is simply the latest example of how our current president is no different from his predecessor.

We have intervened in a tribal society, in a civil war. And we have taken sides in that civil war on behalf of a people we do not know or understand, for the purpose—not a vow, but inexorably our purpose—of creating a political vacuum by decapitating the government. Into that vacuum, what will flow we do not know and cannot know.”

Where are the calls for impeachment......

from our newly elected Republican and so-called Tea Party members of Congress?

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Obama Speech on Libya Taken From Bush Afghanistan

Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

Wrong ! This is worse then the previous administration. This...

is totally a dictatorial action. No imminent threat or action towards the U.S. has been made.
There was no interaction with the House of Reps. by the current administration concerning this attack for authorization. The current administration made this decision without a declaration from Congress.
This has very little if anthing to do with Humanitarianism. It's about oil. There is no reason for intervention in the affairs of Libya. Why do we not intervene in Yemen for the killing of people there. Maybe it's is because Yemen does not have oil. There are other countries as well who's Leader or Dictators are killing their people, why not intervene there as well.
Though some do not care what the Bible says. Maybe it's time we consider what scripture says about those that are corrupt.

KJV Rom.3:13 says; Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit, the poison of asps is under their lips:
Rom. 3:15 says; Their feet are swift to shed blood:
" 3:16 says; Destruction and misery are in their ways:
" 3:17 says; And the way of peace have they not known:

The world needs to know the way of peace ( Rom.3:17)
The author of peace (I Cor. 14:33) sent the prince of peace (II Thess.3:16) to set the world at peace with him (Rom.5:1)and to preach the gospel of peace (Eph.6:15)

We should pray for peace (I Tim. 2:2); live in peace (II Cor.13:11).

What will flow

into the vacuum is exactly what THEY want to flow into it...something like the Muslim Brotherhood, perhaps?

After we establish some sort of (100 acre?) embassy in the region...

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
