US Senate Backs Attack on Libya

A number of US senators have introduced a draft resolution, expressing Congressional support for any American military operations against Libya.

Key Senate Democrats and Republicans formally introduced the bipartisan resolution on Monday, endorsing US military action in the North African country and asking the US President Barack Obama to clarify his policy-objectives regarding Libya, Reuters reported.

Drawn up by veteran Senators John McCain, a Republican, and Democrat John Kerry, the resolution "supports the limited use of military force by the United States in Libya as part of the NATO mission to enforce United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.”

ROTTED Neo-Con war-mongers all.

And the American sheeples stand by and say baaaa.

They're too caught up with "Dancing With the Stars" to notice or care.

The title is misleading

the Senate did not back it. Only a few senators signed a draft.

Wasn't Hezboola originally formed by Israeli Terrorists

Just an observation..

Our country is lost.

Fittingly, I am watching the house of reps. fall all over themselves to clap and cheer for the murderer Natenwahooo as he openly attacks and threatens Iran and blustering as he presides over the largest open air prison in the world. Is it the Iraeli lobbys money that makes otherwise normal Americans kiss his ass? I am sick of it all. These people do not represent me.

The double-standards of hypocrisy can be seen here.

These people don't have a single unbroken mirror in their homes.
They are amoral, and without a heart or soul. Yet, they sleep like babies.

yea, lets all have one big freaking war so we don't have no see

that our dollar is in crisis, unemployment is increasing and the TSA is groping our sons and daughters.

We are so screwed!

Just some senators signed on to this,

the Senate did not. The deadline was already past and Obama did not present a resolution, just a letter of support for a resolution.

Surprise Surprise!

Who would have guessed it?

Support the war even though they don't know why?

So they support making war but they'd like to know what the goal is? This is a body which is supposed to represent the people? What a pile of garbage.

This should be interesting.

WILL most GOP senators and Democratic senators running for reelection in 2012 march in lockstep behind Obama's illegal war? They should be trying Obama for impeachment for abuse of power.

I wonder what Rand Paul will do.

It's a "Stick-Up"!

"explore ways to use frozen assets of the Libyan government to cover the expenses of the military intervention in the North African country"

Give me all your money or I'll blow your brains out.

strike buildings on 9-11 and we call it an act of war.
firing munitions from a military aircraft we call "logistical support".

sadly, many loyal to their D or their R will defend this inconsistency.

Excellent observation.
