Obama warns Gadhafi to comply with UN demands
PMSNBC ^ | 3/18/11 | pmsnbc

Posted on 03/18/2011 12:44:06 PM PDT by illiac

Western allies stepped up military pressure against Moammar Gadhafi, sending warships and fighter planes to the region to enforce a U.N. authorized no-fly zone, even as Libyan forces shelled a rebel-held city despite declaring a cease-fire.

President Barack Obama demanded Friday that Gadhafi halt military assaults against civilians and said that if the Libyan leader did not stand down the United States would join in military action against him.

He might call him a racist...

Or he could appeal to Gadaffi as a fellow Muslim since Gadaffi sees Obama as “one of their own”.

I'll bet that Gadhafi is trembling in his boots!

Gadhafi has not faced a manly man on Obama's level . . . not since he played with one of his preschool children.

The threat of those U.N. blue helmets coming into your country is enough to scare the hell out of anybody. You’ve got to hide all of your women and children from them.

The thing is, Gadhafi has a history of backing down when challenged (by real men, that is).

The thing is, Gadhafi has a history of backing down when challenged (by real men, that is).

The sad thing is, Gadhafi is safe in that respect for a couple of years. Maybe in January, 2013, Sarah or Michele will challenge him. I'm betting he would back down immediately for either of them.

Lol Anything Gaddafi says now has no bearing at all...keep in mind Obama just told him not to do this. And so..

Sheesh Obamaas speech today sounded more like a newscaster report than from a President. But then it is what it is.

In reference to Barny Picture.

There were some occasion where Barny did come though. I think this is insulting to this fine frictional friend. If Obama should have heeded Barny constant call, “ Nip it in the bud.”

I'm sure he's scared, the Europeans and UN are coming! lol

For him it's an end game. The only way he'll respond to threats and the use of force is if we frame it in context with an exit for him. Otherwise this is a nothing to loose situation and he'll go down in a bloody mess.

The world is stranger than fiction. Here's a man that killed Americans, sponsored terrorism, was ruthless as a dictator, was involved in ship hijackings, arms trade to rouge nations, fired missiles on Sicily, declared 1/3 of the Mediterranean as his national waters and threatened to attack all those that entered this space....... and today we find ourselves in the precarious situation of trying to formulate an exit strategy for him or else risk massive blood shed in his own country. How does one help someone who in reality you'd like to see hang?

LOL. Great pic. I saved to photobkt. Hey, did you notice how the bike frame color matches the blue accents on his helmet? What a fag.

In other news, I was very surprised to hear the present of the United States rule out the use of US ground forces - shouldn't we keep a mad cracker like Qadaffi guessing about something like that? I think a smarty would have kept that ace in the hole.

Boy, for the smartest guy in the room, Obama sure has crappy CIC instincts. That's a community organizer for ya,

"the international community will impose consequences."

If these are anything like the "serious consequences" the UN unanimously imposed on Saddam, Gadhafi's home free.

I think our President has not yet seen Team America World Police:

Hans Blix: I’m sorry, but the UN must be firm with you. Let me in, or else.
Kim Jong Il: Or else what?
Hans Blix: Or else we will be very angry with you... and we will write you a letter, telling you how angry we are.
