The Obama Doctrine

We didn’t hear an answer.  He said that we have a moral responsibility to use force to save innocents.  How does that apply to Iraq?  Saddam Hussein was a mass murderer and gassed his own people.  Obama opposed military intervention.  Obama also opposed the surge and advocated withdrawal despite the warnings that it would lead to a bloodbath and possible genocide.  And now that the surge is helping to quell violence and save lives, Obama says that he would still oppose that action.  What does that mean?  What about our moral responsibility to the Iraqis?  Obama says he’s against the Holocaust.  Well, for goodness sakes, who isn’t?  The question is: When would a President Obama order military action?  Based on what criteria?  Do we know?  Does he know?
