Is it America’s duty to intervene wherever regime change is needed?

I ask anyone that asserts we should be defending American Freedoms in Libya to read and or RE-read Thomas Paine's Common Sense.  It is free on Google Books (125 pages +/-).   In 1776 "We the People" had a common cause.  Common sense established the logistics of the American Revolutionary War.  It is going to burst a lot of bubbles.  Our history books give the victory in the revolution to our war revolutionary war heroes, WRONG.  The American Revolutionary War was won before the first shot was fired, the logistics of the situation predestined our VICTORY.

In 1776 "We the People" had moral clarity. In 2011 in Libya we do not even know what Moral Clarity is.  Revolution can not be fomented from the outside.  Revolution for it to be successful has to be a Common Sense indigenous cause; it has to be driven from the inside out.  We can not impose our view of freedom on anyone.  Revolution has to be based on a Common Sense Indigenous Cause, "a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism" that are felt and opposed by "We the People" the indigenous populace at large. 

Libya like most of the Middle East is flush with OUR western petro-dollars.  There is no Common Sense Cause apart from the greed for our PETRO-DOLLARS.  If we want to establish a truly American foot hold in the middle east, we have to do it with NUCLEAR ELECTRICAL POWER GENERATION at home, not weapons of mass destruction, be they nuclear, chemical or conventionally based.   "The China Syndrome" was and is a fascist's propagandist destructive MYTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE need to wean ourselves of petroleum via NUCLEAR power.  We have the technology we CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!  Nuclear electrical power generation, as a surplus commodity, could be producing HYDROGEN for hydrogen fuel cell technology.  We need to do that NOW!!!!!!!!!!!! 

You want to win in the Middle East do it with the peaceful development of SAFE nuclear electrical power generation at HOME.  Take AWAY the petro-dollars. 

I was a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War, I could not see the Common Sense cause for a war in Southeast Asia.   I oppose the Afghanistan war against a country in search of A MAN, Bin Laden.  I oppose the Iraq war in support our leaders machismo at the cost of American and indigenous people's lives.   

 I do not see a common sense cause in Libya.  I see only greed for petro-dollars.  Tell me where or what it is?
