Ensign, Hutchison Introduce Libya Resolution

Senators John Ensign (R-NV) and Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) introduced a resolution today that would “declare that the United States has no vital interest in Libya,” according to a press release.

The resolution does three things:  declares that there is no vital U.S.-American interest in Libya; states that Congress has not authorized military power in the region; declares that the NATO allies and Arab nations that do have a vital interest in the region should step up their military and financial contributions.  Passage of this resolution by the Senate would express its disapproval of the handling of this intervention and serve as a warning against deeper military involvement in a conflict that does not affect our vital interests.
