THE BIRTH OF A REAL LEADER - Tony Wong - MapleRipples
 
America should not be expected to police the world... In this particular country, Libya, at this particular moment, we were faced with a prospect of violence on a horrific scale.      -- President Barack Obama
 
Yesterday marked the day of breaking dawn. President Barack Obama, a Nobel Peace Price Laureate, spoke to journalists openly about his stance on the undergoing crisis in Libya, defending his decision to militarily engage Ghaddafi. He said firmly that even when his country is not directly threatened, but when national interests and values are, the United States will take action, working closely with his allies, the United States forces fired hundreds of Tomahawk missiles into Libya in an attempt to neutralize Libyan military threats to its own people. Obama Doctrine is born. A doctrine which favors negoitation and peaceful talks but also no sitting ducks. As the president put it: we won't wait to see a massacre take place. No sitting ducks, but no occupation. We won't send ground troops to overthrow the Libyan dictator which was done in Iraq. Now, what's really behind the scenes? What has made Obama Doctrine. It's the president's political stance (punters and backbench-- middle class, not Exxon Mobil) and the economic bounceback (got more money to buy in more Tomahawks and more food for pilots to be good to fly and fire). Also, it's because of the imminent elections coming close. Why a limited role in the combined operation? Isn't Obama's cleverness coming into play that interests should be given away to allies so that they'll guard the door for America? Look at the second picture, oil reserves by country. You get the point.
