    Like I said in another thread the US should have abstained from the UN resolution. But since we didn't everyone knows the US is the backbone of the UN. We need to take charge if none of weaker members of the coalition are willing to grow a pair and take charge. The end game has to be the removal of Gadafi. The truth is we should have never gotten ourselfs into this mess.

    Obama is not taking the lead, he looks weak and is showing he is not a leader

    It just goes to show you that coalitions of the “willing” are much more orderly than coalitions of the “volunteering” but I will take the latter over the former every time.

    Coalitions are a bitch. 10 - 15 nations with different languages, different rules of engagement, dissimilar capabilities, etc, etc and may look great on paper BUT its usually a case of the sum of the parts being worth far less than the parts individually.

    Typically, one nation does the heavy lifting

    Is it any wonder that our country is bankrupting itself?

    May it also be noted the coalition is half the size of Bush43's.

    Seeing that size mattered back then, it seems Obama has a wimpy little coalition of the unwilling. Perhaps, I should rephrase that... Sarkozy has a wimpy little coalition. Or NATO has a wimpy little coalition. Or Cameron and Sark... ah hell... who's running the store anyway?

    We have no business in Libya, or anywhere off US soil with US troops.

    Typical you... you never understand anything do you?

    This was the Daily Mail headline.

    Who's in charge? Germans pull forces out of NATO as Libyan coalition falls apart
    It is dishonest and wrong and that is what I am complaining about.

    Your links are closer to the truth and it shows that they come from actual news organisations.

    The Daily Mail first claims Germany is pulling its forces out of NATO.. no they are not. They are moving a couple of ships and saying NATO cant have command over them. That is their right to do so.

    The Daily Mail also claims that because Germany is supposed removing its forces from NATO, then the coalition is falling apart. Again wrong and dishonest. Germany was never ever part the coalition so how can the coalition be falling apart?

    The Daily Mail took a story about conflict in NATO and the coalition on who should lead the action and turned it into a story about the end of NATO.... typical Daily Mail bs.

    Obama ****ed up by getting us involved. Now he'll have to end up taking full control, plus the US will have to do most of the heavy lifting again......and our money of course. Instead of letting the EU handle this one....dumbass.
