US forces in Libya

This is like Iraq 1991, except the US is helping the rebels this time. This time the US might actually arm the rebels, instead of allowing the dictator to fly his helicopter gunships. Saudi Arabia and Qatar have also indicated a willingness to arm the "freedom fighters" as Ed Schultz says correctly. I guess it's quite different from 1991. I'm glad we're on the right side this time, and it's being done by a Democratic President!

I don't think Obama would have helped Iraqi rebels in '91 either. Iran would have made Southern Iraq a satellite state, much as they've done with Southern Lebanon. They may have even annexed it. Who was going to stop them?
