Obama has continually “revised” our reasons for being in Libya. Now it’s about regime change with the predictable result of another endless war with no exit strategy. Too many Democrats who vehemently protested the Iraq War when Bush was president are of course totally ok with what Obama is doing. Their hypocrisy and craven self-interest is both astounding and depressing. Apparently war is fine so long as a Democrat ordered it.
We have now gone from preventing a massacre to enforcing a no fly zone to close combat support to regime change. Yet, the silence is deafening from Democratic leaders and most of the liberal base. It appears that an undeclared war by Bush is a intolerable outrage while an undeclared war by Obama is a pragmatic necessity.
