"To brush aside America’s responsibility as a leader and – more profoundly – our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are. Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different. And as President, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action."
~President Obama's speech on why we needed to get involved with Libya.
Wrong. Not to mention the images out of Iran in 2009 disproved this idea, but what happened in Syria over the lat 48 hours takes the cake. That is most certainly an image of slaughter; I suppose that means Obama has betrayed who we are?
