    I am in a state of consternation concerning Congress. We've been told by several congressman and senators that President Obama was not acting with speed concerning the humanitarian needs of the Libyan people. Now that he acted, there appears to be an entourage of rage and furry with Republicans and Democrats, as to whether President Obama sought congressional approval to enter Libya.

    I am a republican, however I believe that the President acted with integrity and honor, as a man of sagacious judgement in determining what the mission and end result is for the independence of the Libyan people.

    It is time for the three piece suits to fall in line with the President and concern themselves with the soldiers that are are fighting for freedom
    and independence, instead of projecting idle statements of impeaching the President. There are not many congressman who have put themselves on the front lines in battle for freedom and independence. For those of you that have made condescending statements about the President of the United States of America, have brought shame upon your office and the country.

    Truly with the turmoil in the middle east, President Obama has distinguished the office of the Presidency in its finest hour.

    Who cares what Ron or Rand Paul says if it were left up to them the U.S, would be isolated and the enemy target of the World and they would be the Kings of the U.S. forever. That's exactly what these Paul's aspire, so Americans need to be careful where they put their vote.

    Why some people is commenting and critizising the operation now? What? Did we have to way until the murder in Lybia killed his onw people? I can believe it. They are critizising President Obama, but they do not say anything about what the murder has done around the world supporting terrorism and killing American people. Did you people forgot what this beast have done? It is so easy to critizise when no one in your family has been hurt or killed by a terrorist. This operation, is the best thing we can do to help Lybian people.

    Mr Paul sensationalized that we dont have have arab support, we have good relations with key arab countries. We have working relations with the Russian president. These missles were already factored into the US defense budget, probably from prior years. Yes they were alot of $$ but were factored into the budegt from prior years. Ron sensationalized that we're spending money we dont have, when these are sunk costs. I respect the time President Obama took to reach a decision. When lives are at risk, restraint is important. President Obama cool as a cucumber?

    The so-called :international community" now, and always meant: U.S., Britain, and the rest of NATO subservients. That is altogether governments ruling 600 Millions, half of whom are against wars.

    The total of humankind is 6.5 Billions.

    Accordingly, the real international community is against mad racist colonial crusades by the old and new colonialists of the West.

    Watched your comments on AC 360. Well said, why aren't more Americans thinking like you. I am in no way, shape, or form anti American, however, the US cannot police the world. The US can ill afford another war and this one is going to open up another can of worms in the middle east. It is not going to be a short conflict, and as with Afganastan none of the UN countries have an exit strategy. I do not support Canada's involvement in this war. We have lost enough good young men in that hellhole.

    How many thousands of citizens would be slaughtered while Congressmen and Senators talked about doing something? By the time our government got through discussions and committees there would be no one left to save.
    This why we have an elected President. If we are going to be a part of the UN our leader has to be empowered to act according to UN emergency resolutions. Sure it will cost money. How much is a human life going for today on Wall Street?

    Ron Paul makes so much sense. I hope he runs in 2012.

    When we attempt to create peace by economic means we only create chaos, confusion and conflict to give rise to those who seek even greater control over that which is beyond our control.

    It's like putting a hand in a hornets nest.

    Peace comes from being comfortable with our creator. No other means of peace can prevail.

    Until mankind accepts this fact unequivacally, we continue down a path where both the Liberals and Conservatives keep picking the wrong leaders.

    We are in need of a "David the little shepard boy" versus "Goliath".

    Humility is not the strong suit of any political party nor the courage to stand apart.

    Infusive leadership must prevail.
