    What happened to “Gaddafi must leave”? UN 1973 doesn’t mention it.

    I have lots of problems with the initial stages and especially the lack of US attacks against Gaddafi’s ground forces. Perhaps that is coming. The lack of US carriers in the Med is astounding.

    So far we have attacked Quacky’s air defense. The one weapons system he’s not using against the rebels. This is of course necessary to establish a NFZ but it isn’t helping the people fighting in Benghazi right now.

    Three B-2 stealth bombers have dropped 40 bombs on a major Libyan airfield:

    "Three B-2 stealth bombers flying non-stop from the United States have dropped 40 bombs on a major Libyan airfield tonight in an attempt to destroy much of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi's air force, CBS News David Martin reports.

    At the same time, US Air Force fighter jets conducted missions searching for Libyan ground forces to attack. No US aircraft were lost during the missions. Libyan state TV is reporting that air strikes have killed 48 people and wounded 150 in "civilian areas."

    Libyan state TV is controlled by Muammar Qaddafi's government and it was impossible to confirm the reports of civilian deaths Saturday."

    Libyan television reported citing military officials that at least 50 civilians were killed and over 150 wounded in military attacks of the coalition forces, adding that many health and education facilities were ruined.

    Obama is airraiding cities and killing civilians.
    Where are the ground troops Mr. President? Or are you satisfied simply airraiding cities and killing and maiming innocent civilians? Where are the leftists on the streets in protest? Where is Jane Fonda? Where is your outrage at dead civilians? Will we begin seeing a body count in Libya?
    Remember this?


    Degreez:

    It seems Gaddafi Duck believes he is at WAR. "Unprecedented... eeeeveeehn."

    He said that the military operation launched by the United States and its allies was an "unprecedented war"
    Libya hands out arms to people in defense against aggressors - Gaddafi | World | RIA Novosti
    "This is a new crusade, unprecedented in its treachery. All traitors who will collaborate will be immediately eliminated," Gaddafi said.

    The Libyan leader also said that Libya was preparing for a long-lasting war with foreign aggressors.
    Seems like Gaddafi Duck is going all-in.

    I wonder if I did a search on the wars during Bush's administration, what would I find you saying. You want to save me the trouble, and tell me?

    IMO both you and Spud are correct about the use of cruise missiles.

    They are effective against fixed targets like SAM and AAA sites in Libya but quite useless against mobile targets like those in Afghanistan.

    Of course you won't, this war is humanitarian. It just, and Obama needs a war to get reelected.

    Wonderful!! We eliminated his air force.

    Now, about Gaddafi's tanks and artillery slaughtering the Libyan people? When do we start attacking them?

    The French already have.

    Up to 20 French planes were said to be patrolling the air above Libya enforcing the no-fly zone and had destroyed four Libyan tanks in air strikes.

    I believe we, as a coalition, have already started.
