Libya: Obama’s $600 million/week ‘turd sandwich’

I find myself sick to stomach hearing Obama calling his war on Libya a “turd sandwich”, while professor Juan Cole calls it philanthropy (humanitarian) and TV host Ed Schultz praised it as (Jewish) vengeance against this month’s Adolf Hitler. Qaddafi has no record of supporting any terrorist activities against the US, while Israeli terrorist activities against the US are beyond the scope of this post

According to the figures provided by the Pentagon – the Obama’s new war for oil and Israel had cost American taxpayers US$600 million in the very first week. Based on the cost of war in Afghanistan ($391 billion) and Iraq ($782 billion), one can judge how much this new war against Muslims will cost Americans in the future.

Last week, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) have joined together to sponsor an amendment prohibiting all funding of Obama’s “we can do” military adventure in Libya. Both also believe that Obama’s war on Libya is unconstitutional (not authorized by the Congress) and therefore, Barack Obama should be impeached. Watch video below.

“We have already spent trillions of dollars on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, both of which descended into unwinnable quagmires. Now, the President is plunging the United States into yet another war we cannot afford. While the Administration assures us that that the US will hand-off its lead role to coalition partners within days, we have not been notified of long-term plans or goals following initial air strikes in the country. The timeline the President gave to Congress was summarized with one word: “limited”, said Rep. Dennis Kucinich.

In 2007, when the Bush administration was rattling sabers toward Islamic Republic of Iran, Vice-president (then-Senator) Joe Biden stated emphatically: “I want to make it clear. And I made it clear to the President (Dubya Bush) that if he takes this nation to war in Iran without congressional approval, I will make it my business to impeach him.” Watch the video below.
