    NATO Says It Mistakenly Hit Libyan Rebels Again

    The rebs aren't having too easy a time of it. They'll never win as long as they have to fight NATO and Gadaffi.

    TRIPOLI, Libya NATO acknowledged Saturday that its aircraft had mistakenly hit a column of rebel military vehicles last week near the Libyan oil port of Brega.

    Well you yanks killed quite a few of our guys in Iraq and we still finished the job

    This happens, god I mean given the fact that these guys are mostly plain clothed, the amount of friendly fire they've probably inflicted on each other far outreaches anything NATO has done.

    No, it doesn't, "just happen". It happens, because there's no liason between ground and air units.

    We shouldn't be there in the first place.
