    It was a UN-NATO action. Let the UN-NATO do the heavy lifting. Then when they take out civilians in a collateral damage oops!, they will be frantic to find someone to point their collective fingers at since the USA didn't do it... for once.

    Also, I think anyone who endorses this whole sale use of our military in affairs that are not our own should never ONCE bitch about the deficit and our spending since they are endorsing the largest waste of money our government engages in.
    I've heard these arguments before and I don't agree with them.

    When the nations of the world can't take the President's word anymore we lose more than money.

    We have the money to spend on humanitarian military missions and it's a bargain to get a free and peaceful nation in the ME. That is a legitimate expense with great rewards.

    I will always speak out against needless government spending and regulations. Always have.

    I would agree if NATO air strikes were effective. According to the rebels it takes hours after they request air assistance and it's not enough. At the moment it's a stalemate. Gaddafi's guys have ditched their heavy equipment and are moving around in light trucks according to one reporter. If that's true they can blend in with civilians and very difficult to spot from aircraft overhead.

    If 0bama wants to win this it will take a much bigger effort. It might already be too late.

    If he has no intention of achieving his stated goals then letís get out. What's the point?

    Re: U.S. to pull strike jets from Libya mission

    What a grim article. NATO doesn't have anywhere near enough air assets.

    30% of Gaddafi's military destroyed? That's it?

    .....several tanks.....10 APC's......couple of SAM sites......some old planes.....over the past few days.

    Not nearly enough. 0bama has passed the buck to NATO knowing they couldn't get the job done.

    Was he serious when he committed the US to this operation? I'm beginning to wonder.

    he clearly did not think thru the consequences of his latest WAR

    not even days

    let alone weeks

    just between you and me, friend, so long as this keystone klutz is running our pentagon it is PRUDENT to avoid all military engagement (or as much as can be)

    we simply cannot win with this woebegone white house

    stay up

    He still can't believe that Ghadaffy did not just leave when Obama told him to like that guy in Egypt. Doesn't that crazy guy in Libya know that the "change we can believe in" man told him to go???
