US Planned Libyan Regime Change 10 Years Ago: Information Clearing House: ICH & Obama's Bid For Perpetual War

Obama's Makes bid for Perpetual War & State of Emergency  Patriot Act Redux.
Anyway it appears plans to take down Qaddafi and invade Libya has been in the works by US administration and the Pentagon for at least 10 years.
Netanyahu still pissed off at Obama - does this mean Obama is doing the right thing???
Egypt opens border to Gaza.
Obama losing support for escalating war in Libya
Obama forced to reduce military presence in Pakistan
Iraqi leader vows to restart insurgency against US troops if not gone by 2012.

So it appears Obama the agent of change is just another agent of continuing the Neoconservative and Neoliberal agenda to further expand the American Empire under the guise of spreading democracy and ending tyranny .
If so why are Bahrain and Saudi Arabia for instance not mentioned.
So Obama has duped the NATO alliance into doing America's dirty work in Libya while ignoring the oppression in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia .

If so does the United Nations or the International community of nations have it in their power to put a stop to America's self-aggrandizing acts of aggression.
America backs armed rebels in Libya but throws more peaceful protesters in Bahrain to the wolves .

Netanyahu’s Border War
Shlomo Ben-Ami, Project Syndicate: "Binyamin Netanyahu’s furious rejection of US President Barack Obama’s proposal to use the 1967 borders as the basis for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute - frontiers that he called 'utterly indefensible' - reflects not only the Israeli prime minister’s poor statesmanship, but also his antiquated military philosophy."

Awakening to the Limits of the Obama Presidency
Antonia Darder, Truthout: "There are folks who seem to keep hoping that Obama has a 'progressive' side which we will all soon see emerge - reminiscent of the transformation of Clark Kent to Superman in the phone booth. Yet, I can't help wondering if all that progressivism was merely projected upon the handsome black man with the charming discourse style because folks were all feeling so desperate; we were are still seeking a political savior or messiah in Obama."
