Flashback: Activists protest war in Iraq

Do you remember protests on Capital Hill, anti-Bush signs, and blood for oil slogans?  How times change when a Democrat is in the White House.  Libya is, after all, a moral mission with humanitarian aims.  I wonder what made Iraq different?  Oh yes, it was politics.  Despite our feelings of outrage and disgust, Qadhafi presents no vital threat to the United States.  Are we prepared to engage every example of brutal tyranny?  How about Syria, Yemen, the Ivory Coast, or the Sudan?  The American people are interested in taking care of our vital interests first.  They lie right here at home.  We cannot afford such foolish endeavors and I seem to remember they are part of the reason we are in this position.
