76. Anybody who has followed me on DU knows that I, in fact, do not support Obama...
For a good number of reasons, including Afghanistan, indefinite detention and supporting the coup in Honduras.

So, try again without personal attacks.

But just saying Libya is in the top 10 of oil producing countries doesn't mean shit. It just means *that*: it's in the top 10. Why aren't we invading Venezuela? They've got lots of oil! Oh, I know! No dictator there who massacres his own people.
