The Libertarian Patriot
Afghanistan, Iraq and now Libya (somehow I thought that Iran would be next), but why? Libya has not attacked us and Congress has not declared war, so other than the sole purpose of regime change there is no explanation for us to get involved in a civil war of a sovereign nation.
Granted, Gadhafi is a despot and has committed great atrocities against his people but this is not our fight. Nor is it the problem of France, England or Canada. If the Saudis or the rest of the Arab League and Gulf Cooperation Council want to do something about the turmoil in their backyard, let them deal with it, they have the money and weapons.
Of course the war hawks are all too happy to get involved in enforcing the no-fly zone, but that is just them dipping their to in the water. Next they will say we need to supply ground troops to help in the humanitarian clean-up effort should (when) Gadhafi is deposed, followed by a protracted occupation of a peacekeeping force to maintain order.
Nothing is to be gained by our intervention into the affairs of another nation, especially in Libya where we have nothing to gain and everything to lose. Think of it from the perspective of the enemies we already have in the region; once again the US is invading another Muslim nation in order to overthrow the country's legitimate government.
When are we going to learn that our interventionist foreign policy of supporting dictators that kowtow to us and invading the ones that do not, only gives further impetus to the Islamists who's defeat should be our only agenda.
