Barack Hussein Reagan And Ronald Wilson Obama On Libya
Rick Rozoff

Ronald Reagan (RR) April 14, 1986
Barack Obama (BO) March 28, 2011

RR:
At 7 o'clock this evening eastern time air and naval forces of the United States launched a series of strikes against the headquarters, terrorist facilities, and military assets that support Mu'ammar Qadhafi's subversive activities.

BO:
Confronted by...brutal repression and a looming humanitarian crisis, I ordered warships into the Mediterranean...It was not in our national interest to let that happen. I refused to let that happen. And so nine days ago...I authorized military action....

RR:
Several weeks ago in New Orleans, I warned Colonel Qadhafi we would hold his regime accountable....

BO:
Ten days ago, having tried to end the violence without using force, the international community offered Gaddafi a final chance to stop his campaign of killing, or face the consequences.

RR:
Colonel Qadhafi is not only an enemy of the United States. His record of subversion and aggression against the neighboring States in Africa is well documented and well known. He has ordered the murder of fellow Libyans in countless countries.

BO:
For more than four decades, the Libyan people have been ruled by a tyrant -- Moammar Gaddafi. He has denied his people freedom, exploited their wealth, murdered opponents at home and abroad, and terrorized innocent people around the world -- including Americans who were killed by Libyan agents.

RR:
Today we have done what we had to do. If necessary, we shall do it again.

BO:
So for those who doubted our capacity to carry out this operation, I want to be clear: the United States of America has done what we said we would do.

RR:
To our friends and allies in Europe who cooperated in today's mission, I would only say you have the permanent gratitude of the American people.

BO:
In this effort, the United States has not acted alone....Our most effective alliance, NATO, has taken command of the enforcement of the arms embargo and No Fly Zone.
