Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., says U.S. actions in Libya do not make diplomatic sense, when the citizens of countries like Bahrain, Yemen, and Syria are also being oppressed, Politico reports.

“We had better get this straight from the beginning,” Lugar said on Richard Lugar,Libya,Coalition,AttacksCBS's “Face the Nation.” “Or there’s going a situation where war lingers on, country after country, situation after situation, all of them on a humane basis, saving people."

Lugar, the ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee – and one of the few Republicans who's spoken against using force in Libya – said the United States is investing huge sums of money in a foreign effort at a time when the domestic economy is suffering.

“Almost all of our congressional days are spent on budget deficits, outrageous problems,” he said. “Yet, at the same time, all of this passes, which is a very expensive operation.”
