Michael Moore Blasts Obama on Libya

Salah Malkawi/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Filmmaker Michael Moore, who was a harsh critic of the Iraq War, blasted the Obama administration Sunday on the action it is taking against Libya and its embattled leader, Col. Moammar Gadhafi.

Moore on Sunday tweeted from his account, @MMFlint, in succession:

So, what's wrong with this picture (Libya)? Here's what

#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.


On Saturday, Moore proposed that Obama return the Nobel Peace Prize he was awarded in 2009.
