Look at the fun video we made! We have to admit, this war in Libya, at the moment, doesn’t seem so bad. The rebels are being protected, Gaddafi may eventually fall, and Libya could one day wind up a liberal democracy, a free country that emits shining Hope Rays to the rest of the dank, unfreedomed region. But if he isn’t deposed in the coming days, will Obama invade? Even if Gaddafi does fall, there are signs American ground troops could be headed into Libya. Is that why it was so easy to make this video? We’re not even that good at making these little videos. Why does Obama sound so much like Bush announcing the start of the Iraq War?

Make no mistake: last’s night’s address was a war speech. And, like in Iraq, the U.S. is going to be involved in Libya for a long time to come.

President Obama boasted about the rapidity with which the U.S. and its allies got involved in Libya. Some defense wonks, like Andrew Exum of the Center for a New American Security, criticized Obama’s team for not exhibiting diligent planning before Operation Odyssey Dawn began. Obama didn’t signal an endgame in his Monday speech

Oh God. Here we go again? At least this guy didn’t lie about why we’re going to war, we guess. [Wired]

      Unfair to compare it to Iraq? I'll grant you that, but there are fair comparisons to be made to Afghanistan, which is still a mess. "We just have to help the Northern Alliance and everything will fall into place!"

      • mumbly_ジョジョ

        Honestly, at least half of why Afghanistan is still a mess is that the President who led us into that war started suffering a bad case of IWDD (Iraq War Deficit Disorder) nearly as soon as boots hit ground. If we had actually committed, rather than ignoring the war for five years to start another, dumber war, we might have actually made some progress.

        Still, even the best intentions, *and* half-decent execution, can net us a Somalia, which is a somewhat more likely picture of failure on this one.

        • Lascauxcaveman

          I'm cutting Barry some slack on this one. No way in hell Libya=Iraq, and it's not Afghanistan either. You want to tell me Libya is similar to US going into Bosnia or the Croatia-Serbia thing, I'll say, yeah, it looks a lot like that, only we didn't let the bad guys get so far ahead this time.

          Afghanistan was a case of the Taliban saying neener-neener-neener, we're helping the Al Quaeda mess you guys up and we plan to continue doing so. So whaddaya gonna do?

          Iraq was all about Bush measuring dicks with Saddam.

    • Bluestatelibel

      Damn, I hate to say it, but it always happens, not just to the U.S., but the "liberators" are always eventually seen as the oppressors. You just need one meathead ground soldier pulling some shit (as in the lovely photos we saw the other day), and there the whole thing goes. It can be done, but the risks are huge, and the U.S. is as wobbly as it can be nowadays. I know we don't have ground soldiers in there…yet, but the whole thing makes me queasy.

And sometimes, you don't even have that choice.

        There is a slight difference between adverting the slaughter of civilians, and bombing the shit out of all of a country because they once talked shit about your Dad.

        • For realz. Let's not forget it was Bush's fucking Dad who allowed Saddam (WHAT A BAD BAD MAN) to strafe Kurdish refugees from helicopters, like Sarah on a wolf hunt. It's the President's job to pretend that even though the shitstorm is being unleashed, things are cool and operating normally. Difference between Bush and Obama is that Obama is probably bothered by the truth, at least a little bit.

          • Lascauxcaveman

            Yeah. You could say "Grrrr! Barry is just like Bush!" and if you were talking about Bush I, you wouldn't be too far off the mark. If you were talking about Bush II, you'd be retarded.

      • Negropolis

        and just admit the stability of the price of oil is the Elephant in the room in Libya

        Bullshit. The best thing for oil prices would have been to let Q-Daff brutally crush the rebellion and make everything go back to normal. No, this was about a Libyan crackdown sending Libyan's running for the border and swamping the nascent and emerging democracies of Tuniisia and Egypt on either side of it.

        • Moonbat

          Let's assume that's true. Is the best way to deal with Libyan refugees to bomb the crap out of the country they're running from? Is that even a good way to deal with that problem?

          I mean, maybe it is, but it seems like dealing with a refguee crisis is something we could do without killing a bunch of people ourselves.

  • nounverb911

    Let's have a warm round of applause for George III.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    So, since we are at war again, I assume Libya must have tried to kill Obama's father or something? Or did Obama's Father launch a fairly successful war against Gaddafi, but didn't depose him, and Obama is just trying to prove that he is better than his dad?

    • DownFist Troll

      I think Gaddafi tried to steal his secret stash of smokes.

        Or simply tried to steal his stash?

  • God all mighty! How many of those Muslim Countries do we have to bomb before they get it through their thick fucking skulls that we are there to help them!?

    • Dudleydidwrong

      The bombings will continue until morale increases and the thankless natives become thankful and convert their government to one with three branches: Legislative, Executive, and Judicial, and adopt Ayn Rand as their patron saint. There! That ought to do it!

    • Exactly, that always worked so well over the past 70 years, North Korea, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Panama, Lebanon, Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq and whatever the hell else that I'm forgetting, are all now staunch Amerikan allies right?

      War does not work. The last 70 years of history proves that and will prove it again in Libya. If this country were under attack that would be another matter, but there is not even a pretense of that in this, is there?

      What if the money pissed away on arms, planes, ships, communications, personnel and unexploded lands minds we left laying around had been spent on hospitals, highways, schools, bridges and employment? Might this country be a better and more secure place to live?

      We have to learn, war sucks, costs money, does NO good and kills people. That's not good P.R. Could that be related to the anti-Americanism around the world?

      Nope sorry, this war is stupid, Libyans must make there own way and determine their own fate as they will anyway. No long term good will come of this.

Just because Bush was a pod person who knew how to make maniacal lying and evil sound sensible and pragmatic, this doesn't mean that Barry's stealing a page from his book.

    For me this tears in multiple directions:

    Toxic Bush hangover
    As soon as Barry did something like this it was going to be shit-hitting-the-fan time with supporters. An absolute lose-lose largely because of the Bush hangover (I would argue).

    Crisis is real
    Someone had to do something. The US getting involved all over again sucks, but it was inevitable because of how the rest of the world sees the US. Note that internal US politics and movements are largely unknown outside the US. See the address Gillard gave to congress recently.

    The truth is never neat
    The truth of a complex situation is messy. Any simple reading – Barry is great let's love him | Barry is a cunt he's out of here – is the equivalent of sticking one's head in the sand. It's going to hurt whichever way you cut it.

    As President Bush showed he was profoundly stupid, lacking in character and with sense of morality. He put his faith in men who had never told the truth. Everything he did as president pushed the U.S. closer to the abyss.

    Obama is smart, has a finely tuned (perhaps too finely) ethical outlook and (generally) takes advice from people who are qualified to give it.

    The big difference is Bush looks tormented, scared, like he sees trouble ahead. Obama looks calm, cool, and collected like it is no big deal. SCARY to ME!!!!

    That retarded guy said,"…bare the dooty…"

    I didn't hear Obama say,"Heh, heh, heh." once.

  • I just got around to watching this thing and knowing the context in which both these speeches were delivered makes this comparison a giant fucking stretch for me.

    Did anybody click on the next video? It was about Bush and Barack fulfilling Bible prophesy. Using stick people animation the next video shows that the "evil one" is sitting on the throne (the toilet?).

    We can vote in a new president but we still get the same old foreign policy/defense establishment. Maybe that's the "evil one" prophesized in Tim LeHaye books.

    This is totally like Bush trumping up a case against a latent Saddam – who had been contained and sitting quietly for years – because Saddam tried to do bad things to his daddy way back when, and because Saddam's Iraq didn't offer the correct condolences after 9/11 and putting over 100,000 boots and a big-ass military base on the ground. It's so totally like that.

    Not in anyone's fuckin' dreams is Obama like Bush as far as his view of war is concerned. Obama is shitty for a lot of reasons. This ain't one of them.
