"ordered our armed forces to help protect the Libyan people from the brutality of (Gaddafi with an operation of) limited scope and specific purpose," adding "it's in our national interest to act. And it's our responsibility."

-- it's lawless aggression; 

-- the supreme crime against peace; 

-- targeting another nonbelligerent country;
