Keating: U.S. Involvement In Libya ‘Unwise’

HYANNIS (CBS) – Massachusetts Congressman Bill Keating feels the U.S. military has enough to handle already, and any involvement in Libya may prove to be too much.

“We’re already extended near the limit, and I do think opening up in another theater is unwise,” said Rep. Keating.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope reports.

Keating said if Libya’s government was to change, that’s the responsibility of Libya and not the U.S.

“If the U.S. is even seeming, is having the appearance of being part of that, that very effort won’t be successful,” said Rep. Keating.

He added that Libya remains very unsettled and things could spin out of control very quickly.

    I find myself in the odd position of actually agreeing with Keating.

    Meanwhile, our Coward in Chief is partying is up in Rio while he sends our troops to their almost certain death.

    Where is MoveOn.org? Where is Cindy Sheehan? Where is MIchael Moore? Where is Code Pink? Did I leave any hypocrites out?

    As a veteran (Vietnam) of the best example of staying out of other countries business, I do agree with helping the Libyan rebels with air support. But no boots on the ground. I do however wonder about our “good” intentions. Libya has oil (money). Yemen, Syria, Jordan do not. Yet we do not hear a word about them killing protestors who are trying to make a better place to live for themselves. I also wonder how far such a movement would get in this country before our government started doing the same thing.
