Should the US Congress restrict military action in Libya?

The US is taking military action in yet another oil producing nation. Should the US Congress restrict the ability for President Obama to escalate the US' military effort, such as preventing him to introduce ground troops outside of rescue missions for US citizens, or airmen downed enforcing the no-fly zone?

Get out - get out now - stop doing what you're doing and go and sort the US economy out instead of meddling overseas!

That'd be my advice to BO

Hillary Clinton apparently disagrees with you.....In fact, in her experience, doing nothing is worse.

The UN resolution already limits his (and others) actions. There will explicitly be no 'invasion' forces.

I think the deal is we are geting out...But will still be playing Quarter back because of our logistical strong arm the French and Brits need.

Sure Congress will aprove fueling ,supplies, data yada yada yada,,,,but no boots.

Any hoot it's where we want to be command and control..

UN resolution limiting military actions?

Surely you don't think a UN resolution would keep the US, or UK for that matter, from taking whatever action is deemed necessary by their respective military CiCs?

This is going to be another insurgency, destroy infrastructure and secure the wealth.

War theater number four. Wake up.

I think you should reword "the ability for President Obama" to the ability of the Obama government. Meaning the behind the scenes puppet masters telling him what to tell you through the corp. war machine controlled media.

He is a puppet, not capable of this decision making on his own. These things are made up well in advance. He (Obama) is mearly the messenger of death forced to do the bidding of the elite with a gun to his head and/or a billion dollar bribe.

Go ahead, elect a new puppet. It happens all over the world, all the time. If they aren't elected out, they are bombed out.
