  • I never liked the saying the enemy of my enemy is my friend sometimes they are just another enemy. What a mess.

  • I figured this was the case. I find it a tad worrisome why this was the fight we chose to get into.

  • We aren't arming them, this administration IS, they ignore the majority of the U.S. citizens...

  • This is one of those times when you want on the ground intelligence types...possibly embedded for years...because you often find necessity breeds strange bedfellows. In less stressful times, it would not be strategically beneficial to align with those terrorists...but when you (Libya) are being pushed over the abyss, you look to what is available...and we all know al-Qaeda are master opportunists...as are socialists which are infiltrating the Muslim Brotherhood which is rabidly anti-Israel. What a mess!
