Can We Get Back to the NCAA?': Michael Moore Rips Obama on Libya

"Our job is 2 prop up Arab dictators..."

As we embark upon what very well may be our third war in the Middle East, anti-war filmmaker Michael Moore threw a temper tantrum on his Twitter account yesterday, blasting President Obama for joining our allies in intervening in Libya.

In a string of tweets--short messages sent out to a network of his followers--we see the man who doesn't like to share his leftovers share his thoughts on the crisis in Libya. Here are those tweets, arranged chronologically:

WAR

We're gonna keep bombing countries until we get it right.

C'mon, boys! Let's put one in the win column!

It's only cause we're defending the Libyan people from a tyrant! That's why we bombed the Saudis last wk! Hahaha. Pentagon=comedy

And we always follow the French's lead! Next thing you know, we'll have free health care & free college! Yay war!

We've had a "no-fly zone" over Afghanistan for over 9 yrs. How's that going?

I hope they defund NPR this week so we can afford this new war! Public radio makes us weak! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Khadaffy must've planned 9/11!

Khadaffy must've had WMD!

Khadaffy must've threatened to kill somebody's daddy!

Khadaffy must've just attacked the United States!

Today, he went on to cynically enumerate what's "wrong with this picture"--meaning America's military action against Libya:

#1. If the Arab League supports this military action, why haven't they sent in their Arab troops and planes in real amounts? Uh-huh

#2. Our job is 2 prop up Arab dictators (Saudi, Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, etc), not overthrow them & everyone in Arab world knows it

#3. So knock off "it's our moral obligation 2 defend ppl of Libya." After Iraq & Afghan & support of dictators, we have no moral standing.

#4. Too little, too late. So NOW we try 2 help the Libyans after Khaddafy has retaken most of country? Really just a big show, isn't it?

#5. We have neither the troops, stomach, or $ to fight a ground war for months/years to defeat MK. So can we get back to the NCAA?

#6. Unrest forced France & others 2 close down their oil shipping from Libya. Khaddafy then offered China, 3rd World France's oil. Oops.

Moore also suggested that Obama's nobel peace prize be revoked: "May I suggest a 50-mile evacuation zone around Obama's Nobel Peace Prize?"
