Durbin Supports Action Taken In Libya

CHICAGO (WBBM) — U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is voicing support for the actions being taken in Libya.

As WBBM Newsradio 780’s Bob Roberts reports, Durbin says he supports the limited action under international control to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya.

“First, no troops on the ground from the United States. Second, we are prepared to see other nations lead. The United States does not have to be the lead, and third, we’re fully supportive of this effort – Qaddafi is a disaster,” Durbin said.

Durbin calls Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi a madman, and says the sooner he’s gone, the better. He says the U.S. and its allies need to stabilize the situation.

Durbin says he does not want to set a deadline, but agrees with President Barack Obama’s desire to see the action completed in days or weeks, not longer.

    would Durbin send his kids to war it’s easy to say lets do this when you are 6000 miles away .the people in this country are oppressed lets help this country first.

  • southside

    Durbin is true to form. A lapdog for the democrats. Whatever Barack tells him to say, Durbin will spout it. Time for him to go. Stop the spending, Durbin. You’ve bankrupted our country since you’ve been in office.

  • Stash

    Durbin is a guy that sneaks up at night and opens the farmers barn door and lets the horses run out,and the next day comes back and accuseses the farmer of not locking the barn door,Durbin is nothing more than a rotten piece of corned beef.

  • Special Forces

    Isn’t Durbin the guy that called our military men and women a bunch of Nazies and women and child killers,it seems this talk is big in the Democratic Party,or is it the communist party?

  • Special Forces

    This is one clown that needs to be voted out of office along with the muslim in the WH.

  • The Truth

    I wonder how much this will cost the US taxpayers?? Another one of Durbin’s “bright” ideas. These lousy dems need all the minority votes and now apparently they want the muslim vote as well!

    NO TO 4 MORE!!!!

    LMAO! Everyone see how the Republicans attack Obama and anyone else who supports this? Removing a Dictator who’s killiing his own people is something that Republicans tried to use as an excuse to invade Iraq, after thier 360 lies about going there were exposed. But now that Obama is doing the EXACT same thing they claimed was great earlier suddenly its wrong?
    Then again, we all remember how Republicans supported Mubarak in Egypt, calling his overthrow ‘evil’ and ‘immoral’. lmao.
    Why do Republicans support Dictators and war criminals so much?
