I was pondering this earlier.........

... and was wondering where all the anti-war protesting was. Then I came across this post and felt it said everything very succinctly.

This small, Oil-rich nation, which we have tangled with and harassed before (does our President have psychological reasons for pursuing this?), has announced a ceasefire and stated its intention to comply with all relevant UN resolutions. The opposition is fragmented and tribal loyalties dominate, meaning that even if we succeed in ousting the current leader, all that may accomplish would be to take the country to the Brink ™ of a Civil War, requiring an occupation in a murky society where we are not wanted. This will, if anything, Create Terrorists ™ and not Make Us Safer ™ at all.

Thanks to "Gormogons"
