    Re: U.S. Tomahawk Cruise Missiles Hit Targets in Libya

    Looks like Obama's war is actually helping Al Qaeda as alot of us had feared, now the question is do we bomb Al Qaeda in Libya as well as Gadaffi ? I say yes....

    Link

    "The Islamists of al-Qaeda took advantage of the pillaging of arsenals in the rebel zone to acquire arms, including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries in Tenere," a desert region of the Sahara that stretches from northeast Niger to western Chad, Deby said in the interview.

    "This is very serious. AQIM is becoming a genuine army, the best equipped in the region," he said.

    His claim was echoed by officials in other countries in the region who said that they were worried that al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) might have acquired "heavy weapons", thanks to the insurrection.
    With Egypt heading for Muslim brotherhood control, I think its a distinct possibility that they take power in Libya as well. One more step towards there goal of a global caliphate and we can at least partially thank Obama for this.

    A stark difference from the "bring it on"/"your either for us or against us" stance of the last administration in dealing with the rest of the world.

    obama in the AUDACITY OF HOPE, his second book, the title of which was taken from a sermon by his SPIRITUAL MENTOR, the good rev from the gd church of chickens roosting:

    The fact is, close to five years after 9/11 and fifteen years after the breakup of the Soviet Union, the United States still lacks a coherent national security policy. Instead of guiding principles, we have what appear to be a series of ad hoc decisions, with dubious results. Why invade Iraq and not North Korea or Burma? Why intervene in Bosnia and not Darfur? Are our goals in Iran regime change, the dismantling of all Iranian nuclear capability, the prevention of nuclear proliferation, or all three? Are we commited to use force wherever there's a despot regime that's terrorizing its people--and if so, how long do we stay to ensure democracy takes root?...

    Without a well-articulated strategy that the public supports and the world understands, America will lack the legitimacy-and ultimately the power--it needs to make the world safer than it is today."

    Prof,

    More accurately...

    The Western alliance already has assumed control of the arms embargo, led by an Italian vice admiral, and has agreed to take over the no-fly zone in coming days, Gortney said. But there is disagreement over the third mission, which includes air strikes to stop Gaddafi from attacking his opponents.
    2 out of 3 ain't bad. I suspect turning over responsibility of the 3rd phase of the mission will take place soon. At the very least, U.S. military forces can only be there for 60 days maximum. To be there longer requires Congressional approval. So either way, coalition forces will assume full command authority in about 50 days one way or another.

    And about this claim of "nation building," Republicans didn't seem to be so concerned about that with Iraq. Why all the concern now? Besides, you have to have "boots on the ground" in order to conduct any activity remotely resembling "nation building". So, let's stop with the here and see things as they really are for a change.

    Re: U.S. Tomahawk Cruise Missiles Hit Targets in Libya

    from the ap above:

    In interviews taped Saturday, Gates and Clinton also defended the narrowly defined U.N. mandate to prevent atrocities against Libyan civilians and said the U.S. had largely accomplished its goals.
    thank goodness, aren't you gratified to know we'll be outta there soon

    aren't you relieved we have statesmen like abdel akim al hasidi to hand off to

    Prof,

    Another falsehood. NO ONE HAS DECLARED WAR AGAINST A-N-Y-B-O-D-Y! I know you and your Conservative cohorts love to make that claim, but the has not been a declaration of war issued by Libya, by any coalition party and not by the U.S. As I said in a previous post, the situation in Libya certainly is a civil war, but until a delcaration of war is proclaimed, it's just an internal squabble within Libya - nothing more.

    Again, stop the and the foolishness and present the truth w/the facts.
