The Libyan debacle plus other News

The drama really seems to be gaining steam in the Middle East  and today is no different. Call me crazy, but it seems that we are actually at war with Libya. First we were hesitant to get involved, then we spent $100 million shooting missiles over the first weekend of bombing, and now the CIA is on the ground advising. Kind of sounds like Afghanistan to me, when are we going to learn? I understand the situation was bad in Libya before we got involved, but what about all the other countries in the Middle East right now? Should we go into Syria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, all those countries that have had innocent citizens die in protest for a chance at a better life?

With everything going on ,with all the debt we are in as a country, how is it even possible that we are this involved in Libya. What happens when Muammar Gaddafi does not leave and it's a stale mate ? What happens in ten years when the Libyan rebels we want to arm now turn against us like we are fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan? We literally can't afford to fight these wars anymore and when are we going to get it?

We should have a poll, would you rather your Social Security age be raised to 70 years old or do you want to fight some more wars in the Middle East?
