Misrata Libyans now fear chemical weapons are coming next, me too
Moammar Gadhafi's forces used tanks to shell the besieged western town of Misrata on Monday, as rumors fueled fears that the Libyan leader was preparing to use chemical weapons. Hundreds have been killed in Misrata over the past two months as Gadhafi has attempted to seize the only major rebel bastion in the west of Libya
The Libyan government said Sunday that ruler Moammar Gadhafi's son and his three grandchildren died in a NATO air strike, and vowed to retaliate with death to "invaders" in the nation. That was predictable but the rebels better be even more fearful and wary of horrific methods and forms of slaughter being used on them.
This is only going to make him slaughter more people. He and his children will go nowhere, they will have to be killed.He is slaughtering his people and it is a must he be targeted. Anyone around him can not be considered a civilian as they are complicit in the slaughter. Remembering his original statement many thousands will be killed I am afraid he is getting closer to using his cyanide, mustard gas and vast reserves of chemical weapons.
We are getting dragged into a third protracted war with a Muslim country. This is going to work against us. We are also gearing our navy with weapons to deal with the unique threat Iran portrays in the Gulf. We are getting more involved with Syria which will bring Iran on. I am absolutely nonplussed over all this! We are getting dragged into a vicious protracted ground war unless we can target and kill all Gaddafi's and their followers and I do not see that as a possibility.
Gaddafi is right now issuing gas masks to those doing his murdering for him. What choice will we have but to drop a MOAB (mother of all bombs) or a 30,000 pound bunker buster in the middle of his compound designed to dig 7 or 8 stories underground before detonating and take as many of them out as we can. They are not going to relent period. WTF?
