Oh yay, France says they're with us and Britain.

That'll last about four minutes. They'll probably let Gadhafi live there after he gets overthrown and protect him until he dies.

Cant the U.S just stay out of something for once?

Seriously, why is it that we police the world?

It's what we do,

Their are bombing schools, hospitals and residentual neighborhoods

Good thing France didn't say that in 1781.

We're getting involved in this conflict because it's the right thing to do.

U.S. Imports very little oil from Libya, Canada & Mexico lead the way on oil exports to the U.S., Saudi Arabia #3.

Most points of view I've heard are not along party lines, it's about finacing, whether the military is strong enough to handle a 3 rd war and the moral conviction.

This is not a politacal statement it's fact, the Prez cannot authorize troops to fight anywhere without congressional approval, unless we have been attacked or are in iminent danger, neither is reality

I say we should import from the Republic of Texas, or maybe Alaska.  I hear they are really hard working people and they don't have that pesky dictator thing getting in the way.

Economically speaking, it costs less to import oil from Mexico than it does to ship Alaskan crude to refineries in this country.  Most Alaskan crude is actually shipped and sold to Japan.

Hmm, interesting, but it makes sense.  Alaska is pretty hard to get to.

Price of oil is globalized. Where it's imported or exported doesn't matter.

Interesting stuff, but let's stick to fishing.  This is too close to political for comfort.
