America is reigning in the wasteful spending to make room on the balance sheet for another war. Conservatives will never complain about the expense of bombing more brown people, but I have to wonder: if the Libyan Rebels go on to form a Democracy with taxes, schools, roads, health care, unions, and pension plans, will the GOP regret investing in the development of such a recklessly wasteful society?
As for Obama, he promised no boots on the ground. I suppose he’s kept his word. The CIA operatives that have been in Libya for weeks probably wear flip flops.
