    Libya’s Islamist militia strike from the sky



    A Tripoli-based Islamist militia in Libya carried out their first airstrike late Tuesday on a western Libyan town allied with a rival force headed by renegade general Khalifa al-Haftar, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

    Haftar’s forces, based mainly in the eastern part of the country, have used the air force to pound Islamist positions in Tripoli and other parts of the country. The Islamists have not had similar capabilities, and their first airstrikes have raised fear of possible escalation to air warfare between the two.

    Obama's reaction: It's the fault of those damn Christians!

    One...What evidence do you have that they were "Islamist"? Other than the Alarabia News saying they are "Islamist"?

    You see, it is this kind of reporting that really undermines the president.

    And the fact that it is Libya and "old news", clearly this is a Tea Bagger attack on the truth

    Islamists using slow and unmaneuverable civilian aircraft to conduct air raids?
    Military fighter aircraft shouldn't have much of a problem shooting those down.

    Unless they are using other aircraft. Sorry, but I haven't time to read the article now, but will when I get home from work.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Lets hope those in Syria or Iraq can't get any of their stolen military tech to those in Libya. Like choppers or an Assad Mig.

    Dont know what aircraft were used here but elsewhere they have migs. The problem is three fold, they can be quite deadly even kamikazes, they complicate aid/defense in the region and its a disturbing development for a war that according to Obama isn't happening.

    And what of the dangers when civilian aircraft could now to be targeted.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    The real scary part?

    Four years after the NATO-backed war toppled Qaddafi, Western governments fear Libya is sliding deeper into war as the rival factions battle for control and the country’s oil wealth.
    "Western governments" whom?

    I have not heard such concerns from the US White House.

    And while we're at it, there has been a direct threat issued to a NATO country, Italy. Where is the statement from NATO warning an attack on Rome is an attack on all? Canada, France and the US were pretty eager to start bombing 4 years ago...and now that the chickens have laid and hatched their eggs, where's the fox?
