Obama Adminstration: No Clue Why We Are Bombing Libya

Published by at 3:27 pm under All General Discussions,Obama's War In Libya

The Sunday talk shows are meant to be the ‘world stage’ were the reigning politicians parade around their reasons and rationales for current policies. Today, the Obama administration paraded out how deeply clueless they are on Libya:

Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, in a series of Sunday morning television interviews, stressed that the U.S. military mission in Libya is “limited.”

But he also indicated that based on his orders from President Barack Obama, the mission can be considered “accomplished,” even while Moammar Qadhafi remains in power.

As I noted earlier, the implied purpose for all of this was to remove Qadaffi from power, but apparently not anymore. Before the first weekend of the war is completed our firm and resolute young president has once again changed his mind. Something he apparently does many times a day.

  1. WWS,

    All diplomacy is war run on credit.

    The payment being the lives and fortunes of American servicement and citizens.

    The diplometic hole that losing Libya would require a much greater payment later of American lives and fortunes than winning it now.

  2. WWS,

    Obama seems to have at least grasped what total defeat for America in Libya is:

    CBS News:

    “I have . . . stated that it is U.S. policy that Qaddafi needs to go,” President Obama said in a press conference from Santiago, Chile.

    The way to support our troops is to not allow this to turn into a Vietnam situation where society blames the servicemen and women for following orders, and instead putting every single ounce of blame on the people giving those orders!

  4. DJ Strata,

    Yes, the short name for that is “American Military Victory”…

    …but we have a political elites that is allergic to the concept
