Weiner: Libya is Like the Start of the Holocaust or Something

Bit of an awkward analogy, we think.
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) said on Tuesday that the civil war in Libya was like the onset of the Holocaust and the Rwandan genocide in that it demanded action from the forces of good.

"My view is that there are times in American history — Rwanda was one, bombing the tracks during the onset to the Holocaust, that we could have sent a bomber wing in to take out the tracks, we didn't do it — we look back and we see we should use military force to try and defend people who can’t defend themselves," Weiner said Monday on the Don Imus show in New York.

“If we are a powerful country one of the ways we use our power is for good," Weiner said. “What’s the purpose of being a powerful country if we are not using it to defend people?”
How about we start by defending the unborn?

Weiner doesn't know history either. Just how could we have bombed the rails, since we did not have the bombers, or protection for them, even if we really knew what was going on. Ask the relatives of all the bomber crews that were MIA.
