Capitalism Magazine - At War...with America: Obama's Altruistic War Fighting Philosophy

We have no responsibility to provide the Libyan people with anything, least of all help in overthrowing their tyrant. And about that $33 billion in Libyan assets: It does not belong to the Libyan people; it belongs to us because it represents wealth extorted from the West, especially from the U.S. in the form of oil prices on oil produced from expropriated oil wells and fields. That $33 billion should be applied to Obama's rising government debt, and be returned to American taxpayers by declaring an income tax holiday for the next three years.

Two of the best critiques to date of Obama's Libyan intervention are Richard Salsman's March 23rd Forbes article, "Libya Exposes Obama as Our Latest Neocon President," which presents the moral case against Obama, and Daniel Greenfield's March 29th "The Known Unknowns of Libya" on Sultan Knish, which spotlights the utter recklessness of Obama's irrational, illogical, and perilous actions regarding Libya.
