    I'd imagine the Libertarian wing of the Tea Party wouldn't be happy about "another foreign war", and the Conservative wing would support it because they believe "freedom is the right of all sentient beings" (to quote Optimus Prime ). There would be a lot of mixed feelings on the Conservative Tea Party side, though, about supporting their enemy, Obama. Some would say things like "He's finally doing something right," while others would say "I don't trust him, he's up to something."

    The Leftist-Libertarians would of course see it as further evidence that Obama is exactly the same as Bush, and they're all controlled by evil oil-thirsty corporations. Big-Government Progressives would likely support it because Obama is the one doing it, then switch sides and oppose it if a conservative comes into power. Big-Government conservatives would likely do the opposite, criticizing how Obama handles the war, then boast about how they're doing things "the right way" when they get into power.

    I don't imagine anyone will "blow up", though (if by "blow up" you mean "get really angry and stage protests and/or riots) except maybe the Leftist-Libertarians and Anarcho-Syndicalists.
    Quaero Veritas.

    Cynical, but probably correct. Yeah and I guess the conservatives in congress and in the statehouses would insist on the elimination of more social welfare programs to account for the increased military spending.
