"Senators John F. Kerry and John McCain, seeking to defuse a contentious debate over funding for US military operations in Libya, proposed a resolution yesterday offering congressional support for President Obama’s policy in the North African country. The senators, both high-profile members of the chamber and former nominees for the presidency, sought to project a united front in support of the NATO-led action to protect Libyan civilians from Moammar Khadafy’s forces and curtail the dictator’s ability to wage war. 'The last message any United States senator wants to send is that this madman need only wait us out because we are divided at home,' said Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts." [editor's note: The first message we need to send is that USA Inc. is no longer in the empire-building bidness, and that a free America is once again the focus; I ain't holding my breath, though - SAT] (06/22/11)
