doczoidberg: Not with Obama in charge, pal.

Suck it, libs. Obama will never get credit for ANYTHING.

Liberals, liberals, liberals, liberals....

I don't care if Obama gets credit, even when he deserves it, I care more that the USA wins.

You can shove the partisan hate up your ass, I want my COUNTRY TO WIN.

But you can bet had it not gone well, Obama would've been crucified via every media outlet in the US for weeks.

Not sure if serious...

Obama really didn't do all that much in this case


The president of the United States asked for the people of the CAR for calm, speaking to them directly through the Internet and radio. The president shook $100 million loose from the federal budget, to purchase much-needed supplies to the African peacekeepers struggling to stem the killing and airlift in reinforcements.

Activists and U.S. officials alike say that the speed at which the United States has responded is unprecedented and part of it is due to a little heralded document and the bureaucratic tool it created.

Presidential Study Directive 10 (PSD-10) came into being in 2011, declaring for the first time that "preventing mass atrocities and genocide is a core national security interest and a core moral responsibility of the United States."

US Trained, French backed (the French are really very good at this kind of thing), and locally policed.

That is exactly how this kind of thing should happen.

Thanks, Obama!

Cajnik: They're a little late to the party, and I doubt we'll see a followup tag

Look, a little late is a far sight better than the nothing we more or less did during Rwanda.
