Hannity and the Right are Wrong.

For several days now Sean Hannity has been proposing that although there are serious questions whether we should have gotten involved in Libya, yet since we have started therefore we must continue and oust the government and its leader.  There is an old moral principle which says that two wrongs do not make a right.  The escalation of the American military involvement from a no fly zone into attacking the buildings, administration, military and security forces of libya is simply criminal aggression.  The United Nations does not have the legal authority to state that 28 nations can use all means necessary in order to protect civilians, and then be silent as the Obama Administration takes the side of the rag tag rebels forces against the constituted forces of the Libyan government.  The blatant immorality of the idea that the United Nations and NATO can suddenly and without provocation gang up upon a member state is obvious, although ignored by all the allied leaders.  Why do Senate leaders like Mc Cain and Libermann ignore the genocide in Dafur and Congo and the Ivory Coast while warmongering in Libya.  Fearfully, the US is showing itself morally bankrupt in this so called humanitarian war.  So since when are 212 missiles and A-10 gunships taking the side of a motley rag tag rebel force against Gadhadfi a humanitarian effort?
