The Antiwar Right on Mr. Obama's War

  • "The Arab League and African Union are denouncing us, but al-Qaeda is with us," reminds Patrick J. Buchanan, noting that "eastern Libya provided more than its fair share of jihadists to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq... [a]nd jihadists are prominent among the rebels we just rescued" — A Foolish and Unconstitutional War. "Gadhafi did not attack the West... We have no vital interest in who wins his civil war."

  • "Now that President Barack Obama has intervened in Libya," writes Justin Raimondo, "his army of apologists is mobilizing to defend his 'humanitarianism,' declaring that his war isn’t at all like Bush’s wars" — Liberals March to War. "The Anti-Bush Doctrine – and let’s call it that, because it reflects the partisan nonsense that passes for informed debate in Washington and in the San Francisco offices of Mother Jones – is merely the Bush Doctrine turned inside out, and left side up."

  • "If the coalition succeeds in killing Muammar Gaddafi, it will inevitably mean more ethnic and tribal conflict, which could lead to civil war," warns Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., "which is exactly what the US needs to control the oil-rich parts of Libya" — Naked Aggression Against Libya.
