11. I'm with you.
If the Pro-WAR people could point to a single Military Intervention in the Middle East that has ended well,
I might be willing to listen.
This one will not end well either.

Now that we have started killing Libyans, how do we stop?
What is the exit strategy?
(That should be the FIRST question asked & answered before even beginning to talk about another war.
You would think we might have learned something since 1964, but we haven't.)

The marketing being used to SELL our involvement in ANOTHER war
is the exact same marketing "they" used to sell the last WAR.

Does anyone seriously believe we will be OUT of Libya before Campaign 2012 begins?
After the "New War Smell" wears off this, and we face the realities of WHO we are supporting,
how many we kill, and how much it costs,
it will be a hard for Obama & The Democrats to sell this NEW Quagmire to America.

No specific Military Objective + No exit Strategy = Quagmire
