White House: Libya fight is not war, it's 'kinetic military action'


In the last few days, Obama administration officials have frequently faced the question: Is the fighting in Libya a war?  From military officers to White House spokesmen up to the president himself, the answer is no.  But that leaves the question: What is it?

In a briefing on board Air Force One Wednesday, deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes took a crack at an answer.  "I think what we are doing is enforcing a resolution that has a very clear set of goals, which is protecting the Libyan people, averting a humanitarian crisis, and setting up a no-fly zone," Rhodes said.  "Obviously that involves kinetic military action, particularly on the front end."

Your freak'en ass, bimbo-boy.  Paint it, pour perfume on it, sprinkle M&Ms on it, but shi* is still shi*!!!  Obama has joined the ranks of war-criminal, right beside Bush - and violated the U.S. Constitution.  Obama is impeachable, but none of the sorry-ass' on the Hill will have the guts to do it.
