World Leaders Debate Libya's Future
Article can be found here
I'm still seriously wondering why after all this talk from Obama in his campaign about reducing the War Efforts, we are now participating in a 3rd front. Was Afghanistan and Iraq not enough? Why is the United States the world police? We are in a ridiculous amount of debt, and the president seems more than willing to reduce defense spending...well Mr. President, how do you propose to reduce defense spending when you keep sending your military into new wars? I personally agree with Ron Paul's ideas of, well, isolationism. It seems like a great plan for the time being, at least until we can get back on our feet. We don't need to be in Iraq anymore, we don't need to be in Afghanistan anymore, and we sure as hell don't need to be in Libya. Not to mention our bases in Japan and Germany, and pretty much everywhere else in the world that are just a giant money-sink for no real gain except for future war efforts.
