Looks like Obama finally has his "little War" Take note of how differently the MSM reports on this, than they would if BUSH had done this.

The west needs to back off and the dice fall where they may. This is Libya’s war, not anyone elses.

I hope they don’t cut into the tourney to cover this - what if the reporting on 0zer0’s brackets is interrupted?

Democrats wars are always good and republican wars are always bad.

Except when democrat wars go bad (ie vietnam) in which case they pin the war onto the next republican President.

If things continue in Libya well into a Sarah Palin administration you will see the anti-war protests miraculous appear in the streets come jan 20th

Sky News was earlier reporting that Qadaffi was shuttling civilians this morning to their ground based anti air assets. i.e. human shields.

Though there is a huge media war between the two parties. I don’t trust half of what either party claims.

“Democrats wars are always good and republican wars are always bad.”

No, no, no, you just don’t understand...
Democrats kill DIFFERENTLY than Republicans do. It’s a kinder, gentler way of killing that doesn’t involve TV cameras, or left-wing outrage.

Just ask any of the 5,700 civilians killed during Clinton’s Serbian War about this. They became INVISIBLE to the US Media.

Oh I agree. The French are waging war why the punk president adjusts his tournament bracket.

What does it mean when the French take the lead and we sit on our hands? This is Obama’s America, softer than the French.

Amen! Daffy was not strickly using his airforce on the rebels. He only started to use it once he heard a possible no fly zone was mentioned a few weeks ago. He probably figured he'd use them while he could.

I was expecting something like ‘Mo’s holed up in Switzerland under house arrest, not coming back, so I hope you rebels and Mos’ supporters don’t make TOO much of a mess until we get this sorted out.’

You're saying Qaddafy is not a problem to us???

I've got a one-word answer to that, which, if you don't understand, there's always Google...

Gadaffi, who has been a target of Al Qaeda in the past, has been aiding the US with intelligence in the War against Al Qaeda.

Fine, the battle ground will become somewhat equal when the tyrants air power is gone and then let the people who want their country back from a whacko who stole it from them 40 years ago, duke it out!

Macquire, The only thing America should do is defeat islamofacism...........Period!

I could give a flying flip who is in control.

Until those people ( yes those muslims) stand for freedom and not the muslim brotherhood they can have a daily circular firing squad and I will buy the ammo.

Let them clean their own house.

Replacing ghaddaffi, with a fundamental islamist gov't is not a victory, it is a invitation into another war.

No, he was born in the right century - he REMEMBERS Serbia & Kosovo and how well defending & installing radical muslims in an overthrow of an existing government worked out so damn well for us.

What the heck? I thought this was a “no-fly” zone????? Didn’t the froggies get the message? nobama will be irritated and feel disrespected. nobama may send them a slightly strongly worded note.

Hillary Clinton just ate it up while Al Queda laughed at the misinformation given us by him...

You think Quadaffi wanted Al Queda hunting him?

Number One: It was under George Bush that Gadaffi joined in the war against Al Qaeda. He was one of the anonymous countries on that list.

Number Two: Al Qaeda has been trying to gain control of Libya long before Sept 11th and several assasination attempts have occurred against Gadaffi. In other words, the hunting started first.

Are you saying this is the first you have heard of this? It's time for you to be using Google and not the rest of us.

Freeper 'The KG9 Kid' identified it as a MiG-23. Maybe he should be working for CNN as a highly-paid consultant.

Such naive and uninformed opinions come forth from you.

Bet your arm chair is really comfortable.

What a brilliant response, from some one who is also typing at a computer.

This is a absolute nightmare waiting to happen.

I will not support another war unless we goin to win and I dare you to find a winning situation in Lybia.

In fact I would have rather gone into Darfur than this hell hole.
