Posted on 03/18/2011 3:44:12 PM PDT by Fennie
A "coalition of the willing" is rapidly forming to strike back at any military advances of the Ghaddafi regime against the rebels and Libyan civilians. Ten nations already are ready to attack.
An immediate attack on pro-Ghaddafi forces after this night's UN Security Council resolution had been carefully planned, with many Arab and Western nations putting military vessels and aircrafts to the disposition of the operations.

He’s triggered the consultation requirement, and (shortly) the 48 hour notice requirement, but I don’t think he needs approval. They can vote to shut off his funding, but he could keep fighting with his “stash”.
The anti-war left must be tied up in logical knots at the moment. We’re going to war, but we’re doing it to save members of one of their protected classes.
Granted, WE know how to get it done but you forget Barry's in charge and he's on his way to 'parte' in Rio.......la cucaracha, la cucaracha.....................
Why not, the War Powers Act seems pretty clear that he needs prior approval unless America is under attack or under a serious threat. Neither exception applies in this case.
It's an impeachable offense, if he does it without their approval. However, I think a resolution reprimanding him would be more likely to be successful and avoid letting him set a new precedent.
What’s Qatar going to contribute?
If I remember right, W had a congressional authorization approving force in Iraq in response to failure to meet UN inspection requirements. Bush used that. However the 'rats were trying to make a case that the authorization was a couple of months old and he needed a new one. Bush disagreed and went ahead with the one that he already had.
Yeah, and that would be like us supporting the Russians against the Nazis, too. Oh, wait...
The Constitutionality of those provisions is very much in doubt. When Bush went to Congress prior to Iraq, his message in response to the resolution made it clear that the White House was not agreeing that there was a Constitutional obligation to obtain Congressional approval.
Impeachment would never get out of the House in this circumstance. The Republicans are split on the issue, and few are going to want to be accused of being soft on genocidal dictators during the next campaign.
42 killed today in Yemen and how many in Bahrain? How many last month in Sudan? How many Christians burned alive in Egypt, Iraq and Pakistan? How may North Koreans starved in the past 30 days.
But 10 chickenhawk governments (browbeating Barry) all riled up by euro business elites with pipelines from Libya want us to think they are humanitarians
Although Libya’s portion of global oil supplies is not gigantic, the truth is the no fly zone would NOT have come up and never would have approached approval at the U.N. if Ghaddafi already held the oil export port of Bengazi - now held by the rebels - and if the rebels held Tripoli instead - an area not as central to Libya’s oil industry.
Find a “rebels vs dictator” scene anywhere in the world (like Ivory coast right now, for example), now and in recent history, and you’ll likely find if the nation concerned is not an oil exporter, there likely was, or is no call for a “no fly zone” to favor the rebels.
There is, and has been for decades, good cause to oppose Ghaddafi. None of the good reasons ever led to concerted action against him, even after Lockerbie, until political leaders saw an opportunity to separate him from Libya’s oil.
Call me a cynic.
Red China's abstention was fully expected, once again big weapons deals with leftist terrorist Col. Qaddafi.
Brazil, now controlled by a Marxist 'ex'-guerrilla & her anti-American cohorts, also gave support to Libya's dictator by not voting in favour of the no fly zone.
Germany also abstained. Really something! It's reminiscent of what some Germans still consider "The good old days", when Nazi Germany gave full support to the pro-Nazi Arab Grand Mufti, who supplied thousands of various Muslim nationals for Himmler's Waffen SS divisions.
NO WAR FOR OIL!
The New World Order is now deciding who is allowed to rule over each country and which ones will be “removed” or their departure “demanded”.
There’s more going on in the background here than any of us would care to know. When Obama gave up our sovereign rights as a nation and put us under the jurisdiction of INTERPOL, and made deals with Canada about their military, I knew our time had come.
We’re about to be had. America, RIP.
President Clinton signed Congress' Iraqi Liberation Act of 1998 into law, remember?
King James Bible
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].
Not comfortable with the uncertainty in the nature of the new government.
Besides, I have been looking at the crowd pictures since this thing started and noted every “protester” appears well fed, healthy (very big mouths) and muscular. I am not suggesting they are soldiers in civilian clothes, but that's my observation is these are not deprived people.
We know he is a terrorist and supports terrorism in many places. But, just how cruel has he been to his people? Where is some evidence?
Don’t cross the Line of Death.
“Dont cross the Line of Death.”
He’s a pisser ... a total dictator and he makes himself a Colonel.
