Obama: US launches military action against Libya
BRASILIA, Brazil -- President Barack Obama authorized limited military action against Libya Saturday, saying Moammar Gadhafi's continued assault on his own people left the U.S. and its international partners with no other choice. The Pentagon said 112 cruise missiles were launched from US and UK ships and subs, hitting 20 targets.
Obama said military action was not his first choice.
"This is not an outcome the U.S. or any of our partners sought," Obama said from Brazil, where he is starting a five-day visit to Latin America. "We cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people there will be no mercy."
Note: Read the comments in this article, sort by highest rated, the American people are overwhelmingly against this murder campaign, they're all spouting Ron Paulisms! What a difference an economic downturn makes in people's willingness to fund and support the killing of strangers!
