While nothing can be derived from these links, unless you understand the language, this type of thing is one of the risks we ran by encouraging the take-overs of the Middle-Eastern nations.

Even with a crazy bastard like Khadaffi, there can be a serious downside to destabilizing him without adequate safeguards in place.

Who knows who will eventually wind up with Egypt’s military assets?

You toss that in with the very real possibility that our major oil suppliers may be under new management in a few days or weeks, and this takes on a whole new complexion.

They are showing a group of rebels who are displaying captured shells, supposedly containing gas. I cannot tell from the pictures if that is really what they are.
I would hate to be around these rebels: like many Arabs, they enjoy shooting guns into the air, which betrays their position, wastes ammo, and sends potentially lethal bullets into the the aloft to fall possibly in another neighborhood with lethal results. Why must they be so undisciplined, with an evident emotional age of about five years?

There’s another video which purportedly shows some of the captured weapons being ‘demonstrated’, but its on a file-sharing site which I don’t want to go near....

There’s little to what they ‘say’; just your standard ‘Allah Akbar-ring’; if this is legit, it’s going to be quite problematic

I always thought the Mujahideen were Afghani warlords who fought the Soviets in the ‘80s...later related to Osama bin Laden.

There’s Mujahideen in Libya?

I have been out for 30 years, but I will tell you with 100% certainty, those are NOT BIO/CHEM weapons, not stored like that, those are either HE or WP, but definitely NOT Bio/Chem ordnance

“Chemical and biological weapons and bombs seized yeaterday afternoon.”

Bush’s fault. Everyone knew Hussein sent his biological and chemical munitions to Libya. But Bush refused to follow up on that because Halliburton/Hussein/Ghadafi(re: Cheney) had an aggreement to screw over America and provide funding for terrorists.

By flooding the nation with cheap gas we would buy SUV’s that would emit dangerous levels of CO2 into the atmosphere which would require reams of paper taken from our national forrests to write up regulations to protect against that.

In other words, did you know Kerry was in Vietnam?

Sorry, needed a meaningless rant. Time for coffee.

“Why must they be so undisciplined, with an evident emotional age of about five years?”

There’s actually a sound sociology for that. Muslim and particularly Arab women are always treated as 2nd class, subservient to men. Even boys are taught to be arrogant, looking down on their sisters and mother...consequently the boys are spoiled with attention and favoritism, and the girls tend to grow up quickly with a strong sense of responsibility (which their brothers lack).

This makes for surly, spoiled, immature and irresponsible men in adulthood—with the family being held together by the mother. (Not unlike that of inner-city America, actually, except that the father is not physically absent...). When this pathology runs its course angry shamefaced men perpetuate horrific “honor” killing, of family females they perceive “dis” them—which routinely occurs in all Arab, Iranian, and Pakistani states, and law enforcement usually ignores it...as it’s only women, after all... (under Sharia law charges of rape are practically impossible anyway too).

Should be a lesson to all of us—you dehumanize one (legitimate) part of society and at the same time even the privileged are dehumanized.

Relax, your biggest supplier is on your doorstep. Europe is screwed, though.

Let's all hope that those are Willie Pete (WP) rounds they're toying with. There would be nothing better than a bunch of crispy critter Libyan Muslims. Allahu Akbar . . . Ka-Boom!

It’s not all that often that I find myself happy to have been corrected, but this is certainly one of them. I am however sorry to have been stating the wrong information.

I appreciate your comments. I must have mistaken a report addressing the largest oil exporting nations (by volume), as the nations exporting the most to us. WRONG!

At any rate, here is a link to the data on the nations we import the most oil from. Bahrain isn’t even on it, and Saudi Arabia is currently third, by a fairly decent spread.

Sorry to have been making claims here that were not on the mark.

Here’s the link: (Thanks again.)

I suggest you get the Mods to do an addon or Modification of that...Title...to reflect what Squantos and Racebannon are saying....Use the Abuse button to get their attention.

We have a lot of headline readers that will believe what the title says.

These are animals...sub-human beings. These people live in the stone age.

Thin the herd people. Let them have it out. Just keep US out of it.

It’s a Muslim thing. Leave it between them.

From a link on the breaking thread .....(no-to-illegals..posted it ) ... Reuters report:

Libya lacks means to use chemical arms-watchdog

*********************EXCERPT********************************

LONDON Feb 27 (Reuters) - Libya retains 9.5 tonnes of deadly mustard gas but no longer has weapons to deliver it, a watchdog agency said on Sunday, amid international concern that embattled leader Muammar Gaddafi might resort to its use.

Michael Luhan, spokesman for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), told Reuters the chemicals were under the army's control but were stored in a remote location far from the capital Tripoli, Gaddafi's main bastion.

"As far as we have been able to verify, and we have no information that indicates anything to the contrary, Libya destroyed the entire stockpile of its chemical weapons munitions -- a cache of several thousand aerial bombs that are designed for chemicals -- in early 2004, seven years ago," he said by telephone from the OPCW's base in The Hague. Luhan declined to say where the mustard gas was located but added: "It's nowhere near Tripoli, let's put it that way."

"It's kept in a location which is only for that purpose. It's a depot guarded by the military."

Well, we mark our weapons with colors and codes, I believe the soviets or whoever he gets them from, do also, yet those have no markings that are distinct or strike out, nor are they stored in any special manner to prevent leakage of the agent, they are basic storage boxes!

NO FOOL would do that, regardless of their religion

explains the color coding for the folks here best....now , after a ChiCom / Sino Soviet gunrunner etc sells and delivers to a third world shit hole... that dictatorship is no more obligated to stay with such markings yet never have seen em repaint their munitions. They may add stencils in their own language in addition, yet, I never saw any replaced 100% .

Mujahideen is just an Arabic word meaning a group which “does” jihad (from the Arabic root letters J, H, and D). It was a popular “title” to ascribe to the guerrillas who fought the Soviets in Afghanistan by journalists who picked it up and thought it was “special”.
