Anti-war filmmaker Michael Moore tore into President Obama for taking military action in Libya on Saturday. Moore, a frequent critic of President Bush for launching the Iraq War, unleashed a string of tweets comparing the U.S. military’s mission in Libya to Iraq and Afghanistan, using a mantra coined by Charlie Sheen:

+It’s only cause we’re defending the Libyan people from a tyrant! That’s why we bombed the Saudis last wk! Hahaha. Pentagon=comedy

+And we always follow the French’s lead! Next thing you know, we’ll have free health care & free college! Yay war!

+We’ve had a “no-fly zone” over Afghanistan for over 9 yrs. How’s that going? #WINNING !

+Khadaffy must’ve planned 9/11! #excuses

+Khadaffy must’ve had WMD! #excusesthatwork

+Khadaffy must’ve threatened to kill somebody’s daddy! #daddywantedjeb

Moore also suggested that Obama should return the Nobel Peace Prize he won in 2009:

+May I suggest a 50-mile evacuation zone around Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize? #returnspolicy

Moore’s comments came after the U.S. launched 110 Tomahawk missiles at military targets in Libya as part of an allied effort to prevent forces loyal to Libyan leader Col. Moammar Gadhafi from overtaking the rebel-held city of Benghazi.

The strikes on Libya began on the eighth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War.
