Obama's war to prevent mosques from being destroyed

President Obama will go to war when Mosques are destroyed and Muslims are murdered. He apparently doesn't give a rip when churches are destroyed and Christians are murdered. Please read the article.

I'm not sure I understand why you have posted this link. Do you believe that President Obama has sent the United States to war with the single purpose of protecting Muslims and mosques, but that all things being equal he would not go to war to protect other people? You think this protect Muslims and mosques motivation trumps all other motivations for war like access to oil and stability in the region?

My take: The cited source is an editorial that focuses on a single phrase "mosques destroyed" as the basis of its argument claiming the President is discriminating against Christians. It cited another editorial as its source. It fails to cite that President Bush (whose Christian faith has been lauded in some Christian circles) also went to war in a Muslim country, but didn't go into war in Sudan.

Obama's practice is to do what he thinks needs to be done for whatever his reasons and say something else that sounds noble and right; whatever makes the people feel good. What he does and says are not generally connected, at least causally.

One of the reasons Obama cited for his military action in Libya was the destruction of mosques. If that was really true, then why has he not so much as lifted a finger to protest the destruction of churches and persecution of Christians?

I have to conclude that either

1) Obama is concerned about Muslims but doesn't give a rip about Christians (given the fact that it seems to be politically correct to stand up for Muslims but not for Christians, this is a real possibility) or more likely,

2) Obama's concern about the destruction of mosques is a trumped up lie to justify military action for other reasons.

The purpose of my post was precisely to provide an example of the fact that Obama will do whatever he wants and say "something else that sounds noble and right; whatever makes the people feel good. What he does and says are not generally connected, at least causally."
