    But the rebel movement is known to be a group worse than him. The only purpose can be to want a destabilized Middle east. There is no honorable purpose here. Libya will not be worse than it has been for decades.

    I agree, but firmly disagree on the choice made here.

    When is the last time you can factually trace anything Gaddafi has done to deserve such action. Why do you speak of actions four decades old? Is that the best you have?

    What have they done to us, or other countries outside of chain rattling?

    I'm not going to look. Apparently you weren't watching back in 2011 when they were being pointed out. Go back and look at protest YouTube videos. Why do peaceful protester carry weapons? In some of these, you see them firing first if you look closely, unless in over site they were shown and have been pulled since.

    Hypocrisy anyone?

    You know why we knocked out Gaddafi?

    It;'s because he was starting to become a big player in the world game. He had a strong economy and wanted to unite Africa. He had the 8th wonder built, and Libya was thriving. Too bad we bombed the 8th wonder. Anyone know if it ever got repaired?

    I"ll go with the current hot air from a dozen GOPs undercutting the President in a new crisis, just as with Syria.
    ROTFLOL... this coming from a party that did their utmost to undermine Bush43 and the troops on the battlefield... and this after the D's in the senate asked for and got a 2nd vote to send troops to war!

    The Demokrats are vile scum that are willing to send troops to war and then stab them in the back... and in both accounts for political expediency. Filthy, disgusting scumbags.

    This also from a party who had a Senate majority Leader claim "This War is Lost" to the joy of terrorists and Al Jazeera?

    Obama is weak... there is no hiding it. Fark... even the WaPo editors claimed Obama's foreign policy is a "fantasy". They could have put childish in front of "fantasy", but I think they were trying to limit the damage... as always.

    No. The war with Chad was Qaddafi's doing. What he didn't count on was that the Chadians would beat Libyan forces so thoroughly. Ouadi Doum and Faya Largeau were smashing Chadian victories.

    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Go back about 20 years earlier instead of cherry picking your time. This was a conflict before Gaddafi took power. Chad and Libya were warring before Gaddafi took power, and I'll bet relevant truth isn't going to be found on the internet.

    Were you there?

    There was no real war until Qadaffi's invasion. And yes, I was in Chad.

    I have no idea what you read. The Chad civil war touched Libya earlier but that was not significant. Real fighting began in 1978.
