Will the right "support the troops?"
When the Iraq war was launched, we learned from conservatives that patriotism required all Americans to fall in line behind any military action, no matter what, once American service men and women were in harm's way. Any criticism is to be seen as "aid and comfort to the enemy" and, thus, treason.

So, that will apply to the attack on Libya, too, right?

2. Well theres oil, and theres money to be made by the MIC, so I am sure the RW will support it.

There hasn't been a Mid-East war they haven't supported. Hell, most of them want to invade Iran.
