    So I guess in another 20-30 years we're gonna have to go through this all over again?

    Ayup.

    It happens every generation. The cycle swings back and forth between isolationism and intervention.

    The pendulum keeps swinging back the other way.

    Nothing he said in that speech, technically, was wrong.

    THEY WOULD!!!


    We have no idea who is going to take power, no idea what the stability of the region will be, etc etc. Which is fine, if our job is to now help overthrow every government in the world we disagree with. If that is in fact our job, then Iraq was a just war. Personally I would rather we didn't waste valuable resources doing so. Also, I love how our government automatically claims to support the rising of the people, but if that ever happened here they would try to squash a revolution with everything they had.

    Is anyone else uncomfortable with the idea that the UN seems to be the new Commander in Chief of our military?

    It's hilarious that people automatically have to take the side polar opposite of the President. Assume Obama said "Despite objections of the UN, The United States will continue to maintain a security presence in Libya until a democratically elected government is in place and transitioned into full authority of the country". How do you think that statement would fly with the GOP?

    No, but we're in a much better position to having a good relationship with whoever assumes power than if we had jammed it down their throat.

    Bill Maher made a joke about that on his show last week. Nice clitoris reference:

    I'm not automatically contradicting this specific President. I don't think we should have gotten involved at all. I think the Iraq war (admittedly in hindsight) was a terrible idea, but even in 2006/2007 I wanted Bush to get us out of there (or at the very least fight a real war). I hate the stimulus packages by both Bush and Obama, and I hated the bailouts by both presidents also. There may be people (cough you cough) that blindly defend either the Republicans or Democrats, but I'm certainly not one of them. I've grown to despise most things about the federal government, regardless of which party is running it.
