"In a single week, we prevented a potential massacre, stopped an advancing army (loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi) and expanded the coalition," Clinton said... "The situation is painful. There's no place to sleep, there's no water, electricity, there's shooting everywhere," the rebels say... "The fact is that we have reached a solid and sustainable consensus about our goals among all NATO members, which is necessary in order to achieve them. I have spoken in detail with many colleagues regarding concrete steps and we all need to make an effort in order to isolate Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and protect the Libyan people. I have to say that all the things Colonel Gaddafi and his forces are capable of doing do not surprise me, that's a worrying information and it's one of the reasons why fighting in Misrata is so difficult, because everything is happening in urban zones. This represents a big challenge both for NATO and the opposition," Clinton pointed out... Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has, on the other hand, accused NATO of exceeding the UN mandate...

It did duck bullets amid heavy fire again?
Since when is it our business to stop massacres?
Hey! In a single week we prevented a potential massacre, stopped an advancing army, reached a solid and sustainable consensus, and expanded the coalition. Oh yeah, and exceeded the UN mandate.
Bosnia? Why, that's the best war this country ever fought!! Democrat Bill Clinton's finest hour!
Libya? Why, that's the best war this country ever fought!! Democrat Barack Obama's finest hour!
Iraq? Afghanistan? Ugh! War crimes! Abu Ghraib! George W, Bush! Shameful! Best to be forgotten!!
When Moslims kill Moslims - why should America intervene ?
Clintoon was bombing Serbian civilians on behalf of the Muslim terrorists.
Nice of her to put herself on record like that.
" . . . You think we're stupid?"
We should keep both sides amped up and prevent a truce.
Which is *precisely* what we are doing...
"We" voted for Obama...
So the Dems only believe in fighting wars that we have no business fighting when one of THEM is POTUS? Just trying to understand the rules.
Hell, dumb bitch, you could prevent real missile attacks on the jewsish people, instead of the fake crap in Libya, but then you and the democrats will be happy when the brotherhood takes over and the last Jew is gone.
Correct, we were on the wrong side there also. We never should have been there in clintoons wag the dog war.
She’s a lying cow. The info coming out of Libya says government forces have targeted rebel forces and left civilian populations alone. Do we really think that Washington would have any problems at all in ordering the bombing of US citizens?
In a few weeks, we managed to continue a war that would have been over by now, if we hadn’t intervened.
And I’m not surprised to hear that you approve of your husband’s war in Yugoslavia. I hope you and Bill are still getting payments from the Muslim drug runners and body part smugglers there. They really owe you!
Obama Pre-emption doctrine - go in where we have no US interests, no Congressional vote, to pre-empt a genocide that was never happening and is not as bad as many other places where it actually is happening provided that the Arab League and Arab League run UN says okay.
Sure makes Pres Bush’s Pre-emption Doctrine on behalf of our self-interested national defense look good.
I’m not volunteering any lambs to slaughter but it would have been over if we hadn’t butted in and who’s to say that a thousand dead then is worse than a thousand dead when it’s over.The dems always scream to stay out of civil wars but that’s what this is.
