Gadhafi forces shell western city while NATO meets

Apr 15, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KLKN-TV Lincoln

Troops loyal to Moammar Gadhafi unleashed heavy shelling Friday on Misrata, pushing troops and tanks into the rebel-held western city, a witness said, while NATO officials struggled to overcome differences over its mission to dislodge the defiant Libyan leader.

How misled Leftists allow these Communist Americans to get away with these increasingly absurd violations of international law is amazing. Violating national boundaries, outlandishly using media and distorting international criminal law to support their invasive ends is insulting to anyone with any perception remaining. Obama giving high tech weaponry to anyone within the al Qaeda structure makes it not only worse, but insane.

I thought odummy was going to end this war in a matter of days. How many weeks has it been now? I will bet this war will still be going on in November 2012.

I agree with Trump on this one ... he stated he would pull out all troops from the middle east if they did not compensate us the over $2,400,000,000,000 they owe us!!!

and he would stop foreign aid while our own citizens are suffering!

odumba can learn alot from Trump! Like how to be faithful to America & quit apologizing to shithole countries that hate us!

Hussein Obama has given the 'rebels' in Libya the most modern weapons in the U.S. military arsenal.

The rebels are muslim; Taliban, Hamas, Al Quada, etc.
In other words they are TERRORISTS, aka Muslims Brotherhood, of which Hussein Obama is a devoted card-carrying member.

With the coordinated efforts of Hussein Obama and Ahmadinijad, tens of thousands of muslims were tranported from different muslim countries to Libya.

Hussein and Ahmadinijad want to muslimize Libya just as they did in Egypt.

Hussein Obama is a traitor, an islamofascist whose hope is to become America's first black muslim dictator.

Gadhafi has every right to neutralize any and all invaders. He is on the defensive.
Perhaps he will unleash his nukes on those responsible.

Gadhafi may not be a nice person, but how much worse is Hussein Obama?

Libya vs. U.S. self-interest
March 22, 2011 by Elan Journo

Two brief thoughts about the international — actually, US-led — military campaign in Libya.

1. My view is that the campaign in Libya runs against genuine U.S. national interest — i.e., the protection of the lives and freedom of Americans. It has all the trappings of (and has been sold in part as) a humanitarian effort to quell the attacks by Gaddafi’s forces against the rebels. It’s far from clear why or how it is in our interest to do that. A so-called ‘humanitarian’ mission like that (as I argue in my book) risks sacrificing American lives and mires us in needless conflicts. What’s actually unfolding is a campaign without a clear objective or justification (unseating Gaddafi? yes? no? backing the rebels? both? who are the rebels and should we back them? what if there’s a prolonged civil war?). That should worry us profoundly.

2. There’s a glaring double standard in America’s (excuse for a) foreign policy in the Middle East. Consider the situation in Libya and the one in Iran. When massive protests took place in Iran during 2009/10, Washington was mute then grudging in its wishy-washy response; ultimately, it failed to lend the protesters even a shred of moral support against the militant, Islamist regime in Tehran, a regime that poses a demonstrable, existential threat to our interests. Contrast that with the response to the Libyan uprising (tribal civil war?). Yes, Gaddafi can be classified as a menace, but a trifling one, far less of a problem than the threat from Iran. Yet it is in Libya that America decides to take military action to back rebels against Gaddafi’s regime.

Let’s unpack that for a moment: we do move against a minor, tinpot dictatorship where we have little at stake, while leaving the fire-breathing Tehran regime in place — tacitly endorsing its rule by failing to help the protesters. We do launch bombing raids in Libya — if the UN and Arab League approve it — for the sake of rebels whose goals we don’t know if we share, against a regime that’s of minor significance to our security. But against a threat to us, from Iran, we adopt statue-like passivity.

Put another way: When our interests are at stake — as they were and are in Iran — we hold back and appease. When someone else’s interests appear to be on the line (the rebels and civilians in Libya), we dutifully scramble jet-fighters and put American lives in harm’s way, for the sake of serving others. Why? That double standard is rooted in the prevalent, and perverse, moral view that permeates our foreign policy — a view requiring that we put the needs of others ahead of our own goals and interests. Acting in accordance with that view — as I argue in my book — has been enormously destructive to American security and freedom, across decades.

Depressingly, under the guidance of that same view, our leaders are drawing us into a crisis called Libya.http://blog.aynrandcente r.org/libya-vs-u-s-self-intere st/

Good article....and the reason why USA and NATO doesn't face Iran is now clear:

They are running out of precision ammo and don't have enough air planes even to use in Libya and are BANKRUPT !!!!

If they can't sustain a war even against Libya and same time be in Iraq and Afghanistan, how could they face an Iran even a Iran W/o nukes ?!? THEY SIMPLY CAN'T !!!

USA and NATO are crumbling !!! "The King is w/o cloths!!!"

He's not. Do a search on what Libya did about securing water. AND WITHOUT one cent of Financial Marxist loans!

This little act in just ONE thing that pissed off our ruling DC Marxists.
