The Arab world is going up in flames, and our can't make a Strategic Decision, ever, worthless piece of crap marxist president fails to make any commitment or do a darned thing. One of the greatest opportunities to aid freedom at little cost is occurring in Libya right now...and Hillary says we're 'waiting for the World to act'.
This empty suit sits in power for a couple weeks of amazing change in the mideast and he can't figure out what to do or how to take advantage of it. Freakin' saddest sorriest excuse for a chief executive this nation has ever seen, bar none. Thanks, leg tinglers, good work!
Morality does not depend on 'consensus', you stupid cow
WASHINGTON, March 10 (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton underscored on Thursday the need for international consensus on the next steps on Libya, saying any unilateral U.S. move could have unforeseeable consequences.
Clinton also expressed deep doubts about proposals to set up a "no-fly" zone over Libya, saying previous no-fly zones set up over Iraq and Serbia had had little effect.
Clinton told the House of Representatives appropriations committee that the Obama administration believed it was imperative that other countries agree on the way forward.
"We are working to create an international consensus because we think that is absolutely critical to anything that anybody, especially us, does," Clinton said, saying there was considerable ambivalence over what should be done.
Freakin' France, of the cheese eating surrender monkey variety, is showing more gonad than the pair hillary swings and O lacks.

France became the first country to formally recognize the Libyan opposition – the Interim Transitional National Council – as legitimate representatives of the Libyan people on Thursday, pledging to exchange ambassadors with the country’s newly created transitional council in a major diplomatic victory for the Libyan opposition.
The announcement followed a meeting between French President Nicolas Sarkozy and two representatives of Libya’s Interim Transitional National Council in Paris Thursday
Speaking to reporters at the Elysée presidential palace in Paris, Ali al Issawi, a former Libyan ambassador to India who quit his post last month, announced that, “France recognises the National Council as the legitimate representative of the Libyan people.
No-fly zones: The devil lies in the details
"There will be an exchange of ambassadors between Paris and Benghazi," he added, referring to the eastern Libyan city that has emerged as a rebel stronghold over the past few weeks.
The recognition comes as European Union foreign ministers meet in Brussels Thursday and defense ministers of NATO’s 28 member states also gathered in the Belgian capital to consider the imposition of a no-fly zone over Libya.
Ahead of the Brussels meeting, AFP reported that Sarkozy would propose “targeted airstrikes” in Libya as a way to end the violence. .
With even the slightest air cover the rebels can end the reign of one of the tyrants of the mideast...and yet O and Hill sit paralyzed with indecision.
