No. No. No. No. No. Not Happy

Been off-line most of the day. Come home and read the news. Not liking this. Just damn. We're in another war?
BENGHAZI, Libya — A coalition of American and European forces bombed Libyan targets by air and sea Saturday in the first phase of a military campaign to drive Moammar Gadhafi from power.

French warplanes fired the first shots in the broadest international military effort since the Iraq war, destroying government tanks and armored vehicles in the region of the rebels' eastern stronghold, Benghazi. Hours later, British and U.S. warships and submarines launched more than 110 Tomahawk missiles against Gadhafi's air defenses around the capital Tripoli and the western city of Misrata, which has been besieged by Gadhafi's forces, Pentagon officials said.
Obama says we won't send group troops. Good news as far as strategy goes, but small comfort. Everybody knows our air power can annihilate any country in short order. We're still in another fucking war, dammit. Not what I voted for.
