1. Seems to me that fundamentalist Christians like Graham are overly obsessed
with domination and submission.

2. This is Lindsay not Franklin. I'm thinking Lindsay is trying to be a macho
man or something after those "come out of the closet" stories. He's ridiculous and trying way too hard.

3. Graham is wrong to advise that we violate the UN mandate. However, on the other side
there are plenty of liberals who also want to ignore the UN mandate and refuse to intervene in Libya at all even though it was sanctioned by the UN. So both sides are not respecting the UN's mandate.

5. The Security Council resolution authorizes "all necessary measures."
The Security Council authorized member nations to take all necessary measures to protect civilians, diplomatic code words calling for military action.

Diplomats said the resolution which passed with 10 votes, including the United States, and abstentions from Russia, China, Germany, Brazil and India was written in sweeping terms to allow for a wide range of actions, including strikes on air-defense systems and missile attacks from ships. Military activity could get under way within a matter of hours, they said.

I object to your use of the term "Obamaesque lie." President Obama is not liar and it's a real shame that we have to put up with people calling him a liar on this Democratic board. This is the same board that raised money for his election campaign and now we have to put up with this on this same board.

8. The nerve some liberals have, to not "respect" the UN mandate!
Because as everyone knows, the UN is infallible. Always has been. And besides, we don't have any serious problems in this country, so we might as well borrow as much money as it takes to protect the Libyans from their dictator.

And while we're at it, maybe we should send in the military to protect the Syrian people from their dictator too. But wait, there's no UN mandate. Hmmm, I wonder why. It wouldn't be because there's no oil in Syria, would it?

7. General "Spider Marks" (CNN Military Consultant) said on CNN to Crowley..."Blow His Face Off!""
I thought that was quite an agressive statement from Brigadeer Gen. "Spider Marks" on CNN to Candy Crowley.

BLOW HIS FACE OFF!

I had to think about this for a moment. I was glad that I didn't have a "little kid" standing next to me in the kitchen as I was cooking and heard this. I know how "little kids are." I would get asked:

But, "Mom, Auntie, Grandma"....why should we "Blow the man's face off?" Most of my family are Christians who (ARE NOT FUNDIES) and WE don't BELIEVE ...in Blowing folks Faces Off! Nor, do we believe in torturing Humans, Animals or Sea Creatures for the PLEASURE OF WAR.

Sorry if some here don't know that there ARE CHRISTIANS...who are NOT FUNDIE WAR MONGERS! But, it's the truth of it.
