Washington (CNN) -- The United States is weighing a possible military role to help the Libyan revolt against leader Moammar Gadhafi, but top U.S. officials warn that the issue is controversial.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a Senate panel Wednesday that "there may well be a role for military assets to get equipment and supplies into areas that have a need for them" and in areas where the United States is welcome.

Even with the liberals, we just can't stay out of conflicts.

As much as the US wants to be the hero in all of this. We can't put ourselves in other countries' business... that's what the U.N. is for. What?! It's going to be another Iraq and Afghanistan? There was no legitimate reason for troops to have been there in the first place. IMHO.
