Wonderboy's Failure in Libya

It's disheartening to see the US seemingly gripped by fear and indecision as to what policy to pursue as Qaddafi slaughters his own people in Libya.

What good are our armed forces if not to be able to protect Libyans from being killed by their sociopath tyrant?

I've read the pros and cons of establishing a 'no fly' zone. Frankly, I don't think the technical aspects are that daunting, even if it means taking out Libya's air defenses and airfields.

The more pressing issues is Wonderboy's obvious inability to engage in virgin military actions that he didn't inherit. And the Libyan people's awareness that the US won't aid them in avoiding being murdered by their own government.

No matter what allegiances the rebels have, the ordinary Libyans see America now as intransigent and disinterested. And this from a president who claimed that the US is now a 'Muslim nation!'

I'm embarrassed and frustrated to see this inaction on our part. It's shameful.
