Also -- the U.S. military is now reportedly providing transportation for French soldiers and equipment headed for Mali.

    This is just another example of how America can ameliorate turmoil in the world effectively without chest thumping and flag waving. The Arab spring was another incident in recent memory where President Obama’s support was extremely effective without direct military involvement in the conflict.

    Mali and France have been entwined since 1892 and our support should be measured by that of our allies needs and not by stupid, arrogant, grandstanding platitudes like McGrumpy’s offensive fundraising ditty; bombbombbomb,bombbomb,Iran

    I like the new selective support direction by this administration for defusing international hot spots and think it will save many lives and produce many alies in the long run. Not to mention save alot of coin.
