Michael Moore suggests 'evacuation zone' around Obama's Nobel Peace Prize 

Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore has been on a Twitter tear yesterday and today, denouncing President Obama's unilateral (as pertains to our government, at least) decision to involve our military in the Libyan civil war. Here are seven of his latest tweets,  strung together:

So, what's wrong with this picture (Libya)? Here's what:

  • #1. If the Arab League supports this military action, why haven't they sent in their Arab troops and planes in real amounts? Uh-huh
  • #2. Our job is 2 prop up Arab dictators (Saudi, Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, etc), not overthrow them & everyone in Arab world knows it
  • #3. So knock off "it's our moral obligation 2 defend ppl of Libya." After Iraq & Afghan & support of dictators, we have no moral standing.
  • #4. Too little, too late. So NOW we try 2 help the Libyans after Khaddafy has retaken most of country? Really just a big show, isn't it?
  • #5. We have neither the troops, stomach, or $$ to fight a ground war for months/years to defeat MK. So can we get back to the NCAA?
  • # #6. Unrest forced France & others 2 close down their oil shipping from Libya. Khaddafy then offered China, 3rd World France's oil. Oops.

Moore has been known to argue somewhat inconsistently on the Afghanistan War, which he originally opposed but whose necessity he then embraced as part of his argument against the Iraq War. But no inconsistencies this time. He wants President Obama's Nobel Prize to be returned:

May I suggest a 50-mile evacuation zone around Obama's Nobel Peace Prize? #returnspolicy
