In Libya the coalition is cracking and the abstentions are speaking up
I just heard the first US fighter aircraft just went down. The pilot bailed out and was rescued by rebel forces. I hope and we will keep watching. Plus as some of us suspected I just heard a retired General say you can bet we have had special forces there from day one and there will eventually be ground forces but not ours. Damn!

Libyan air strikes: reactions around the Middle East
We have to take out as much of Gaddafi's military capability as possible and get out of there. If France wants to hang around, good luck to them. While we are watching one town Gaddafi's thugs are in another machine gunning the people and laughing.
When we are gone those people better be prepared to fight to the death. Even if Gaddafi was to be killed his sons are just as vile and ruthless as he is and the military seems more than happy to slaughter their own people unlike the Egyptions.
I fear for those people who want to go after Gaddafi themselves saying it is their fight, I remember from day one when Gaddafi said he has not begun to fight and there will be 200,000 dead. There is the mustard gas but I fear how far he will go to slaughter his people and stay in control of the Libya he plans on passing to his ruthless sons. While the world is confused as to what to do Gaddafi and his sons are not. Bad things are coming!
Where is this going to go? Do we want the rebels to win? I just don't see it happening on their own! Gaddafi is going to retaliate against us and the rebels any way you look at it. Remember Lockerbie!
