We need to stay out altogether - period.

Reader comment on item: Back to the Shores of Tripoli?
in response to reader comment: The U. S. Does Not Need to Solve This One

I am more than fed up with policing an unappreciative world when our own nation exhibits to much cowardice to back any good cause. There is no winning side to be on. Qudaffi is a nut case and the rebels would only present a power vacuum enabling someone like the Muslim Brotherhood to step in.

As for the oil, we have more than 500 billion barrels of sweet crude underneath the states of North and South Dakota and Montana. We are only allowed to look at it. Bring the troops home and have them fight the EPA which is preventing us from going after our own proven oil deposits that are bigger than the whole Middle East's deposits combined. How does $16 a barrel sound to you instead of the over $100 a barrel we are paying the extortionist powers of the world oil cartels?

We've got plenty of battles to fight at home that are going begging for those who would fight them.
