90 Days, 90 attempts to absolve the president of warmongering in Libya

From 90 Days, 90 Reasons subhead: LET’S GIVE PRESIDENT OBAMA FOUR MORE YEARS. HERE ARE 90 REASONS WHY.

Here’s reason 24:

REASON 24: OBAMA DEMONSTRATED PRUDENT AND EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP IN HELPING BRING ABOUT THE FALL OF MUAMMAR GADHAFI.

President Obama proceeded wisely, in allowing the U.S. to be a key player in a multi-national effort to support the rebels without committing to American air strikes or the deployment of American troops on the ground. He demonstrated his understanding that the world has changed. The U.S. can no longer afford to be the global policeman. It is neither wise nor necessary for America to carry the burden alone for other nations in order to play a leadership role.

My rewrite:

Today’s reason:

President Obama proceeded unwisely, in allowing the U.S. to be a key player in a multi-national effort to support the rebels kill civilians and fund regime change without while committing to American air strikes or and the deployment of American troops on the ground. He demonstrated his total lack of understanding that the world has changed. The U.S. can no longer afford to be the global policeman. It is neither wise nor necessary for America to carry the burden alone at all for other nations in order to play a leadership role in invading other countries, killing their leaders and converting them to Democracy.

Nice try attempting to absolve Obama of responsibility for blatantly illegal and unwise foreign interventionism by blaming NATO, Khaled Hosseini. But since the US is NATO’s biggest funder and influencer  that doesn’t actually work.
