    It's not a humanitarian effort. It's a war. War is never a humanitarian effort. It is only an anti-humanitarian effort.

Now, even though tanks and artillery will be chased away from Bengazi, the flow of death squads in unmarked pickup trucks will continue.

    "Libya's air defenses have to be destroyed", and such destruction using American rockets does not constitute and act of war? Since when? I think even the Kanuckistani's would consider 112 rockets into their country an act of war.


    There we go... at least someone is willing to admit it's Obama's War.

    It is a war. No doubt. It is a perfectly legitimate war by the rules of Just War. Humanitarian Intervention.

    The UN has authorized and enforced the no-fly zone, I don't see a problem with the US participating.

    If ground troops go, I'd oppose that.

    With all due respect, the Tomahawk cruise missile is not a "rocket." It is 3000lb GPS guided missile with a 1350 mile range that was capable of carrying a W80 nuclear warhead. These were decommissioned in accordance with the SALT treaty, though.

    It's not war. There have been no formal declarations of war. They are safeguarding the interests of the civilians of Libya. Again, it's not war.

    Oh I see, this is why you were so down on Obama for not foolishly rushing to attack without UN consensus, so that you wouldn't have to wait so long to chastise him once he was part of the effort to protect Libyians.

    Those death squads can be beaten by the rebels as they have done before. It was the heavy armour and artillery that the rebels have had hard time dealing with

    I wanted to highlight this for all of you who feel UN approval is so damn necessary. Seeking the fig leaf of UN approval had significant costs. It was not necessary.

    Yes, but they would have been able to deal with them in Ras Lanuf, Misurata and Az Zawiyah, instead of Bengazi with the initiative of the rebels completely reversed and Ras Lanuf lost, Misurata who knows and Az Zawiyah decimated.
