Quick Take On Obama's Libya Justification

President Obama said that he justifies our bombing of Libya on humanitarian grounds.

Ehem..., excuse me but where were you, Mr. President, when - god knows how many - were murdered in Teheran (and elsewhere in Iran) in 2009 (not to mention missing a golden and rare opportunity to take down the mullahs)?  Where were you as 800,000 were massacred in Darfur? Or countless others in all sorts of hell holes around the world?

By your justification, the Iranian blood of murdered protesters as well as that of all victims killed by tyrants around the globe while you watched are on your hands! 

But we have you figured out.  It is not humanitarianism or, as it should be, our national interests that guide you (as we have none in Libya), but rather your self absorbed, self aggrandized image of yourself that compelled you to undertake this foolish action after amateurishly waffling for days.
And for that, you will go down in history as absolutely the most pathetic foreign policy president this great nation has had the misfortune of having.
