Breaking News: It's On! French Military Jets Over Libya! Obama AWOL!
"French military jets are preventing forces loyal to Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi from attacking the rebel-held city of Benghazi, French President Nicolas Sarkozy says.
It is believed to be the first act of intervention since the UN voted on Thursday for a no-fly zone over Libya.
Western and Arab leaders have been meeting in Paris to agree a course of action to confront Col Gaddafi.
`Our air force will oppose any aggression,` Mr Sarkozy said."
The world leaders meeting in Paris discussing the course of action to take against Gaddafi doesn`t include President Barack Obama. The Leader of the Free World is on an "official" trip to Latin American countries that includes a stop in Rio.
While Obama is ogling Brazilian hotties, the French President has assumed the mantle of leadership, and announced that French military jets are flying over Libya.
America shouldn`t go to war against another Muslim country, our troops and military resources are already over-extended. But having made the decision to participate in enforcing the no-fly zone over Libya, Obama should show a little bit more leadership.
Maybe Obama can set the sun tan lotion aside for a couple of moments, and at least tweet his response to the situation in Libya.
