I'm starting to wonder if it's a "Wag The Dog" War...

Remember the movie of the same name, in which the US President blew the shit out of someplace in order to wipe some scandalous shit out of the headlines with non-stop war news ?
The same sort of thing that Bubba Clinton was accused of when he started the whole Bosnia/Kosovo business. Some said it was to knock reports of his extramarital carryings-on out of the news.
Now, Obamsky ain't having no fun on the side, of course, but news reports on his tenure have been tending toward the negative... ...economy still weak...hideously expensive efforts to remedy same largely ineffective and apparently tantamount to a giant giveaway to the exact sort of rich folks Obamsky will likely turn to for big campaign bucks in 2012...Everybody and their brother looking to bail on Obamacare via "special examptions" from complying with its labyrinthian regulations...Inflation rearing its ugly head in spite of all assurances to the contrary by the FED...All ends of the political spectrum disappointed in "Hope & CHange" turning into "More of Same" - just to mention a few choice items.
Now all of a sudden all we're seeing is Libya this, and Ghaddafi that, "moral imperative" this, and "duty to act" that.
If it was all about oil - I might well say More power to our Mighty Kenyan Muslim Socialist !!!
After all - no matter who gets Libyan oil, the supply disruption is still making ours more expensive. Seems like it'd be infinitely easier just to sink our own wells & affect our supply that way, but maybe I'm just a poor, dumb Polack who don't grasp nothin'...
