Has the U.S. entered another Middle Eastern War? (Post #21)

Many questions have been raised since the United States began air attacks on Libya a week ago as part of a United Nations coalition. America turned the lead in the air strikes over to the U.N. Sunday night. President Obama will address the nation Monday night to answer some of the people's questions about our nations involvement in another foreign entanglement. The president's worst critics accuse him of an unconstitutional war and call for his impeachment while his supporters claim that the action prevented a massacre and will lead to eventual democracy. We are all feeling the effect of the disturbance in the form of rising gas prices. How do you feel about our military's involvement in another conflict? Can we afford the sacrifice of blood and treasure required to maintain our role as the moral police of the world? Or, is this a key key battlefield in the war on terrorism? Check the links for more information and respect others opinions when blogging.

  1. Our military involvement in Libya has its pros and cons. As a pro, the U.S. is helping the people of Lybia from a tyrant. As a con, it basically is another war intervention for America who is already suffering. Yes, the U.S. needs to remain and keep the face of a world police, but sometimes it seems like a little too much. Many lives can be saved from the help of the U.S. and U.N. in Lybia, but how many other places have the same situation? We can't tell the whole world what to do. There should be a point where the U.S. stops, and takes the time to say...is this really worth it?

  2. First of all, America is NOT the moral police of the world, we stick our nose in everyone Else's business, we're more like the nosy younger sibling. Military involvement is morally right in this case, but there are economic factors to consider, is the possibility of a democracy in Libya worth adding to the deficit? We have to worry about the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, the up uprisings in Egypt, and other places, the relief for the Japanese, and now Libya, we're spread too thin. As for the gas prices, there's always other options, public transport, bikes, shoe lace express, car pools, ect. As a Motor vehicle owner myself, i do not like the rising gas prices, it just means i cant drive as much as i'd like to.

  3. I believe that the United States should of stayed out of this conflict, we dont have the money and we don't have the time, we can be spending money and time, on other things that are useful to OUR country, why do we keep putting other countries before our own? i am not sure if we are doing this to help them or to stop terrorism, the only person that can tell us that is our president, but i believe that it is part of the reason we got involved

    It's nice that we're trying to help out other countries and stuff, but I don't think it was a smart move this time. We can't afford to run our country properly; why would we go try to change another? I know it's morally correct, but there just isn't enough funding right now. I'm not sure why we're named the world police. Why is there a United Nations organization at all if the United States is taking on everyone solely? NATIONS should work together to be a WORLD police. Not let's let the nosy US take care of it. We have enough wars of terrorism to take care of right now. We don't need to enter another. This war is not necessary at all, at least not yet. I must say, I do agree with the president's "worst critics". It's time for impeachment.

    The military's involvement in another conflict worries me only because the United States has other problems to deal with right now. The lady brought up a good point too: If the United States is the "moral police", why aren't we helping people in different African countries and other places around the world? I guess since there is a democratic movement we should be on board, but the United States does seem to be spread pretty thin right now.

  6. I think that America should stay out of this conflict in Libya, it will stir too many mixed feelings here at home. I feel like this will be exactly like Bush when we were in the middle east, it just does not seem worth the trouble and the cost.

  9. With the continual increase of national debt & the war still being fought in Iraq, it is hard for me to fully support the US's entry into Libya. It is far too expensive to fight in Iraq & Afghanistan & to an extent the government should take the war expense into account. I am sure that there are valid reasons to go into Libya and potentially fight, but I think that the timing is a big factor for why I don't support this entry. Gas prices are escalating & pretty soon other goods in our economy will suffer from inflation. The funds necessary for this battle could erase all the work done to improve the economy by sending us into a deeper recession.

    i believe getting involved with Libya was a terrible decision. i know were helping them out by regulating over there, but we are in horrible times here. we need to worry about ourselves right now and fix our economy. with gas prices soaring, we do not need to be spending more money on another unnecessary war. it is already too expensive to be fighting over in Iraq, and now this Libya conflict is just adding on. i think we should not be over in Libya right now because of our on economical problems.

    Weird how the the guy who said he would fix Bush's "mistakes" on war got our country in the middle of another conflict. Our country, vastly in debt now has to worry about losing more money in an impending war that would certainly cost a hefty penny. The U.S dosn't have to get invloved in this, the U.N. can handle things without America being the leaders. For once we should stay out of other countries affairs. Funny how people are not hammering Obama as much as they did Bush.

  18. I think the US should step down as the moral police of the world because it is too costly right now, in peoples lives and also money. Also I think as long as this "war" is short and the US doesn't stay in Libya the economy won't be hurt too badly.

  19. Whenver something in the world goes wrong there comes the U.S. to the rescue. I believe that what the U.S is trying to do, helping all those people, is good but at the same time it is too much. U.S. is overworking itself with all its involvements in war, helping other nations, and trying to help democracy spread. I believe if the UN is taking care of lybia then there is no need for the U.S. to get involved. I also agree with the women from the CNN video clip about how it seems that te U.S. is only focusing in the area at and around te middle east. All the wars and uprisings are occuring in that area, but there are other parts ofthe world that also need the help but are not getting it. The gas prices are rising t ridiculous amounts, and with the U.S. spending so much money it will cause the debt to rise ad for the economy to fall. I do not know why the U.S. keeps offollowing this trend after seeing the negative effects from the other wars it ha gotten and is still involved in.

  23. These hard times have stressed so many people. so much disaster and conflict all around the world. The conflict in Libiya has worried Americans. Another war to fight after the Iraq/Afgahnistan is alot to take. The money that would be put into another war wlll affect the nations economy. Gas prices have rose to 4 dollars a gallon. We as teens who drive now feel this hardship. Although we are in this war to help out the people from the tyrant, we must help our people in struggle.

    This is one of the biggest mistakes Obama has made so far in office second only to health care reform. This country's economy runs off cheap gas prices and by doing something that distrurbs this the economy will get screwed up. Sure people over there are dying due to his corruption, but what do I care? I live here in the United States of America. We had been getting along with Gaddafi just fine, why screw up a good thing. What Obama fails to realize is that the economy of our country needs to come first before we worry about what is happening some 1000's of miles away.

    Although it is important to help other countries, shouldn't the U.S. try to help itself with as much effort as the effort it uses to meddle in other countries' business. The U.S is barely in a position to help its own citizens, and had trouble fighting in the war with Iraq and now its helping citizens from other country fight a war they started at the cost of our resources. The U.S can not afford the loss of more resources, it should first set its own democracy straight and then help other countries create their own democracy.

    Although I don't think Obama not attacking Libya would have led to a big war he did so we'll never know what would have happened if he didn't. Gas prices don't phase me too much, I just don't drive as much as I use to and I watch how I drive too and it ends up costing about the same as before, if not a little less now that I don't speed as much. I believe that Obama was just trying to end this situation as fast as he could and I respect that. What I don't respect is that were supposed to be against killing the leaders of another country in a time of war. Although this is not considered a war I still don't think we should have bombed the castle where the leader of Libya may or may not have been in. If Obama says were going to war I'm behind him though, and I'll be glad to go fight if he sends me there, whether that's because I sign up or because of a draft.

  36. To those whom much is given, much is expected; and, with much power comes much responsibility. We are blessed to live in the United States and most of us cannot imagine the hardships faced by those living under the oppression of a ruthless dictator. The logistics of war are a mess: who we help, how we help, whether or not we have the means to help. But regardless of whether or not this was the time and place to step in, at least we have the right idea:trying to help those who are unable to help themselves.

    There are good things nd bad things that come out of this war with Libya. A good thing is we are helping out Libya. The bad thing is we can't afford to start another war. We are already trillions in debt and another war is not going to help ous get out of that debt.

If Obama wants war then he should be out there fighting.

  46. I find it laughable that the so called "Moral Police" sends its own stooges to die for a cause that their feet weren't even sunk into. The world will spin, even if there is no justice. The U.S. as a country must make the most cost efficient choices for its own people, as that should be its top priority. Trying to turn a war in Africa in our favor is kind of a dumb idea since we're low on money (as always), and it's not a necessary war, it's an optional one. Yet another reason why world peace is an unreachable and laughable goal.

Also, from the provided video it seems that we have the aid of the united nations so thats a plus. However, I understand that financially this could be the a move in the wrong direction. We could argue the entire fix our country before others or the lets keep our nose out of every one else's business. However, I can't complain to much concerning the decision made.

    Personally I was done with the Obama campaign from the beginning. He was suppose to be this big change over America, but so far he is not backing up anything that he campaigned around with. He wanted to cut government spending and so far he has become the largest spending president in history. He wanted to stop wars and be friends, but look were we are now. Sending more troops over sea, day after day. I don't want to hear about this man who was suppose to change the world anymore. He is nothing more then any other president, if not worse. As far as the air raid's, I don't care about the morals, that is their problem. I can't honestly say if we should be there or not, but I don't want to see anymore of his stunts like bowing to other leaders and talk about a better day were we can be at peace. You don't do that crap and turn around and start bombing people...

    Well, i think that if we fight in a war we should get something for our effords. Just like the old days when countries were at battle and then after the winner is declared they got to take over the losers land. I feel that if we are just going to go over there, waste Billions of dollars, then leave, then that is pointless. The world needs to be more grown up and solve conflicts without war. War is a sign of failer, not succsess. Not to put down on any of our soilders, becuse they are only doing has they are told. The problem is with the people who think they run the world...

    I believe that going into Libya is a mistake wheather it be on land or air. I think we should let the world learn how to solve its onw problems. The speech Obama gave monday night was convinsing. It made me support his cause for a while before i remembered the logic behing my opposition. I think the people who say Obama is going against the constitution are wrong. The UN supports Obama. There have been other presidents who have gone into war without ignoring public opion while Obama at least tried to convince us and has the support of the UN. There was also the cold war which tried to spread democracy around the world. Obama is only trying to stabilize the middle east. Although I see the logic behing Obama's cause, I still don't support it. I feel its more trouble than its worth.

    The crisis that will come form being involved in this war will be great yet one must realize that good or bad there are reasons for why the president did it. One must think jezz would the price of has have something to do, well of course the US isn't going to give up on the cheaper oil that they can get at. Also they're not going to risk their own land, such as the Alaskan reserves. i must say that i believe that we should have not gone into this war but what choice is there, whatever the US does they will still be criticized for any little action. But whether we like it or not there is many things that one has no say in and that's one of them, yet we are all not capable to make a choice that pleases all.

  63. I think that the UN is correct in trying to save innocent lives, but America should not be so involved. I think assisting the UN is one thing, but the US needs to know when it is time to back off the wars. We have invested so much time, energy, money, and lives into other wars in the middle east, we do not need to be fighting another one. We need to show our support for their democracy in another way that does not involve all of the fighting. The US could sit and watch from the sidelines for once.

  64. As many of my peers have shown, this was a mistake. Why put ourselves into more problems than we already have??

Does that mean were are going to fight a war in two fronts just like before!? People are either going to agree with obama or likee breana said. have some haters.. ahaha but stil the U,s cannot afford the sacrifice of blood.

    I believe that the U.S. troops should not get involved in another war, because it causes a waste of money, but it also takes lives. Right now, I think that the U.S. should be more worried in other problems than war, especially with the economy so bad. I think that this would lead to terrorism against the U.S. which would be even worse, so war should not take place.

    It is nice to Obama wants to help another country in need, but it may not be the best choice right now for our economy and country. What goes around comes around, and although I do agree that if something like this that is happening in Lybia happens to the US that we would want other countries to help us right away. The US already does so much to help other countries, so I think that there is a certain line crossed when we have helped them too much and i think that we have already passed that line. Other countries have already agreed to help, so i think that we should step back and let them handle it for a while. The US doesn't always have to play superman everytime when it comes to helping other countries first in time of war and crisis.

  73. Im sorry but they really need to stop having our soldiers go fight in different battles if we arn't needed then dont put them there its upsetting enough to just watch them fight in the first place.If a different country doesnt ask for any help then let them try and fight it out themselves.

  74. lets fix our own issues before helping others. People these days are ill-minded. Just remember what "we" are doing over there is going to end up with me investing in bomb shelter companies.

  75. What I don't understand is... why is Libya so important? There is hundreds of countries suffering right now, where were we for Egypt and Jordan? What about when Georgia was attacked by the Russians, a US ally? We need to be consistent if we are going to wage war in the name of Liberty meaning: Support every democratic state or just stay home.

    the war with Libya is a bitter sweet situation. it would suck to be involved with another war. however it looks and feels good to help out a fellow country.in order to get out of debt, we cant be getting into more wars. we are in way to deep.

    I think that America should stay out of this conflict in Libya, it will stir too many mixed feelings here at home. I feel like this will be exactly like Bush when we were in the middle east, it just does not seem worth the trouble and the cost.

  78. The attacks on libya is a good choice made by the president because civilians in thAT COUNTRY spoke to the world for help. We as the strongets country in the world have a right to protect those who cant protect them selfs. Obama made a good choice on helping those innocent civilians who needed our help.

    How do you feel about our military's involvement in another conflict? Can we afford the sacrifice of blood and treasure required to maintain our role as the moral police of the world? Or, is this a key key battlefield in the war on terrorism?
    I think the military should just take care of u.d and dont get into any other conflict then what they should be getting into.. no we cant not sacrfice our soliders blood and we dont have the money for that also.

  80. I personally believe that the United States should have stayed out of this for once and worried about other more important things that actually pertain to the United States, I understand that the United Sates might want to help as much as they can, but it has its own problems as well and should first try to solve those instead of jumping into more problems.

  81. In no way is the U.S. prepared for another war the declining economy is the biggest problem. The U.S. needs to stop trying to create so much conflict and concentrate on ourself before we try and enter another war.

  82. I think it is very nice of the US in wanting to help other countries, but honestly I believe that congress and the president should worry about our economy first. They should worry about decreasing the trillions of dollars that we owe not increasing it. And we cant afford to lose more soldiers or money.
