Britain, Italy and France send military advisers to Libyan rebels, Libya calls it an act of war. This is how Vietnam went, remember?

Libya rebels to get $25m of US military equipment under Pentagon proposal We are getting in deeper and I do not like it!

UN slams Libyan regime for alleged use of cluster bombs, saying such attacks could be international crimes.

UK to Send Military Advisers to Help Libyan Rebels

UK 'mission creep' fear grows Don't forget who their number one ally is and NATO wants us to take the lead again!

Italy and France sending troops to advise Libyan rebels

Libya calls it an act of war says European military advisers for rebels will extend fighting

This is as Qaddafi Forces Shell Mountain Towns in Western Libya

Rebels will 'fight until they die'

This is another nightmare that is just taking shape. Do not forget Russia and China want Gaddafi's oil and are dead against this and sending advisers first is the way we got involved in the mess in Vietnam. I am sick that we have learned nothing and this will dwarf Vietnam. Let the rebel's fight to the death we are already close enough to ours between all the wars and our growing bankruptcy.

We can't do this and we are getting dragged into it! This is not going to be good especially if Russia and China get involved helping Gaddafi in one way or the other in turn for his oil.

I am all for dropping a MOAB (mother of all bombs) or a 30,000 pound bunker buster designed to dig 7 or 8 levels underground before exploding right in the middle of Gaddafi's 4 acre compound. We are going to end up doing this I am afraid and what about Russia and China?

How quickly you've forgotten some of our basic rules. We don't go around killing a country's leader no matter how much we hate them. Bush seemed to have forgotten that along with our constitution.

That is true but Gaddafi has proven to be a terrorist attempting to slaughter his own people using cluster bombs and whatever he can. Things are developing pretty quick and I do not like everyone sending military advisers. Here we go again!

He's been a staunch ally of the Republicans for decades, much like Saddam was until Bush I betrayed him.

Perhaps Obama is going to let a Republican President kill him?

Right now, Qaddafi has a lot of dirt on Cheney and pals. He kept $billions of Halliburton's illegal gotten gains, safe for over a decade. But because He was branded a terrorist, Halliburton couldn't move that money out of the country.

That's why Bush and Cheney declared him to be a kissy face lover boy and 'really good guy'. they needed sanctions lifted to get Halliburton's money moved to Dubai.

I tend to think Obama is urging the Brits and French to take care of this dirty detail, because the U.S. public won't stand for having U.S. troops do it. Plus, we're already neck deep in two Mideast wars Americans have thoroughly had it with. Oh, and Obama would really like to get re-elected, and realizes getting bogged down in another Mideast war would be a sure ticket back to Chicago in 2013.

I have no proof, though, and realize I could be wrong. Like most Dems, Obama has the gene that makes it easy to wrest defeat from the jaws of victory.

Yeah Wease that is why they keep saying we do not want to kill him. I just heard Gates say our contribution is going to be drones. That will make a hell of a difference. WTF?

an average patriot said...

No you are right S. W.! I just heard Gates say we are contributing drones. They can fire their heavy weapons from the cover of buildings but the drones will see the flash. I see we are arming our Navy to deal with Iran's threat. I will post it next week I think but this really sucks!

Interesting bringing up this is how Nam went ... havent thought about that before ... but it kind of does look that way, eh? Some comment's of interest especially from Weaseldog here ... I didnt catch that, and enjoyed that info, in other word's, I have wrote about many thing's that have as well materialized as I expected based on the math, but alot I didnt know the detail's of what was what or why thing's were being done by the parties, so the piece about Halliburton, and also about Libya ratholing money that was other's make's sense. Thanx ya'll!

an average patriot said...

RC I am stupefied that this is happening at the same time we have two going in Muslim countries and we are arming the navy to take on Iran's unique capabilities in the Gulf.

Having researched our warring past and present I no longer trust why we fight. America the warring Nation! WTF?
