I’m watching with interest how people react to the military action that started on March 19th.
This dictator came to power decades ago. He’s been a thorn in the side of the west for some time. He’s sponsored terrorism, and he has been killing his own people.
Some in the U.S. are concerned that we don’t have a clearly-defined mission. But here’s the truth of the matter. The president, whether you like his politics or not, decided not to take unilateral action, but to get the U.N. to say that if the dictator doesn’t stop, force will be used.
He didn’t. And now force is being used.
There will be lots of people in the U.S. opposed to this action. Others will support it. At least one Democrat has called for impeachment. And the media don’t really know how to handle all of this.
What will I do? Well, I’ve decided to get in my time machine and go forward eight years. 2003 looks like it will be a rough one. 2011 will have to be better, right? In fact, when I get to 2011, I’ll post these thoughts on the Internet somewhere for people to read. They’ll read what I wrote and think how silly it all was.
