    How Will The U.S. Pay For The Libyan War?
    (posted with permission from http://sane-ramblings.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-will-us-... )

    On the 8th anniversary of the Iraq War, President Obama, with U.S. allies, launched the Libyan War. But President Obama didn't say how he intends to pay for this war so presumably like the Iraq and Afghan Wars, it will go on the credit card.

    Given that the U.S. government already borrows 40 cents of every dollar it spends and is running the printing presses at the fastest pace in U.S. history, what will happen to America's finances?

    And as those finances deteriorate even further, what will become of the food and medical programs for poor families and operation head start for their children and in-home health care and food programs for the elderly and frail. Will the U.S. continue to layoff teachers, police and firefighters?

    The President painted the U.S. a hero for attacking Libya's tyrant, Moammar Kadafi, but how heroic is it when those most in need in the U.S. are left to suffer in silence because there isn't enough money for them. Please join me in raising your voice for compassion and fiscal sanity.

    I'll bet they had no problems when BushCo and Tom DeLay ran up the debt like drunken sailors

    The funny thing is all Obama has to do is handle this like W would. In other words, crush the Col. like a grape. He's done the missile strikes, now follow it up with a surgical ground campaign and hang Col. Klink out to dry in the sun.

    But the odds of that happening are slim.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    The French will kill him before Obama does. Maybe they'll smother him in white flags.:eek:

    I would hardly call lobbing a few missiles into Libya a war.
