"Obama has Turned America Upside Down When He Bombed Libya"

Victor Davis Hanson,has written an article describing how Barack Obama has turned America on its ear just by bombing Libya.

In it he says this;

By bombing Libya, President Obama accomplished some things once thought absolutely impossible in America:
a) War-mongering liberals. Liberals are now chest-thumping about military "progress" in Libya. Even liberal television and radio cite ingenious reasons why an optional, preemptive American intervention in an oil-producing Arab country, without prior congressional approval or majority public support -- and at a time of soaring deficits -- is well worth supporting, in a sort of "my president, right or wrong" fashion. Apparently liberal foreign policy is returning to the pre-Vietnam days of the hawkish "best and brightest."
Also this;

c) Iraq was just a Libyan prequel. Conservatives have complained that past opposition -- especially in the cases of then-Sens. Barack Obama and Joe Biden -- to George W. Bush's antiterrorism policies and wars in Afghanistan and Iraq was more partisan than principled. Obama ended that debate by showing that not only can he embrace -- or, on occasion, expand -- the Bush-Cheney tribunals, preventative detentions, renditions, Predator attacks, intercepts and wiretaps, and Guantanamo Bay, but now preemptively attack an Arab oil-exporting country without fear of Hollywood, congressional cutoffs, "General Betray Us"-type ads, Cindy Sheehan on the evening news, or "Checkpoint"-like novels. In short, Obama has ensured that the exasperated antiwar movement will never be quite the same.
Be assured,the next time we have a Republician president we will hear from the ant-war left in all its lunacy.For now,it will do as its master (the Democratic Party) commands,be silent.

I've said it before and i'll say it again,Hypocrites,the whole lot of them.
