No! Please Don’t! I’m Broke!

There are reports that President Obama is considering using military options in Libya. I really hope he resists the advice to use our military in Libya.

Yes, the attacks on civilians are unacceptable. Yet, our forces have accidentally attacked civilians for the last several years in Afghanistan and Iraq. During that time, civilians were massacred in other African countries but no one advocated establishing a No Fly Zone in those countries.

Congress has authorized millions of dollars to help the Libyans, yet no one said we can’t afford it. Why not use that money for some of the programs that were cut or are facing cuts?

Where is the money coming from if we use our military in Libya? I thought we were broke?
