Aren't these the same countries that have savagely attacked America in the past for exerting its military?

The French started it, so let them finish it alone. Their last war hero was Napoleon. Have never been any others.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Now, countries realize how hard it is to run a coalition when other countries keep reducing their participation. They have to learn to do stuff without the US doing the brunt of the work. The US is already busy in Afghanistan.

War in Libya is expensive; China Russia know this well.

That implies leadership and the decisions a leader makes, not voting "present".

I like what Obama is doing. I think it's good for Europe to take the lead role (and the majority of the criticism that goes along with it). And in the end they can become more self-sufficient. I hope he continues to take a back seat.

But WHEN is NATO gonna help out in Bahrain?? The Shia MAJORITY is waiting for them to stop the live bullets from the Sunni MINORITY sheik. Oh, but wait...the US 5th Fleet docks in Bahrain to protect the Sunni oil from Saudi Arabia et al. Now I get it!!! Qaddafi can't be controlled, so the West bombs him to get him outta there -- hoping that the 'rebels' will repay them with access to the oil fields. Well, I'm sure there'll be some unintended consequences for this hypocrisy. Mind you, King Qaddafi is no saint, but compared to the Saudis & other hardline oil states in the region, he's a SAVIOUR. Women in Libya have waaaaay more FREEDOM than in Wahabi kingdom of Saudi Arabia. You think the West would appreciate this.
