Yes, we would kill Gaddafi:Defence Secretary admits tyrant is a 'legitimate target' (UK)
Daily Mail ^ | Last updated at 11:45 PM on 20th March 2011 | By Tim Shipman and Michael Seamark

Britain is ready to launch a surgical strike to assassinate Colonel Gaddafi. Defence Secretary Liam Fox said yesterday he would sanction a ‘bunker buster’ attack on the Libyan dictator’s lair as long as civilian casualties could be avoided.

Dr Fox vowed to destroy the Libyan dictator’s entire military infrastructure as senior officials privately admitted they want to engineer regime change.

As Britain launched further strikes using Tomahawk cruise missiles last night and RAF strike jets prepared for a second night of raids, fears grew of ‘mission creep’ in the military assault intended to enforce the United Nations resolution authorising a no-fly zone over Libya.

Three Cabinet ministers refused to rule out the eventual deployment of British ground troops, saying only that there are no plans to do so ‘at the moment’.

So who/what is going to replace this half-baked idiot Gadhaffi?

Al Qaeda has influence among the people there.

Besides... There already ARE boots on the ground:

SAS teams are on the ground in Libya with orders to pinpoint and destroy Colonel Gaddafi’s weapons.

Dozens of the crack troops have been operating behind enemy lines to identify targets for bombing raids.

Highly-trained units, known as ‘Smash’ teams for their prowess and destructive ability, have carried out secret reconnaissance missions to provide up-to-date information on the Libyan armed forces.


A senior defence source confirmed that there are special forces operating in Libya and that more could be sent.

The source said: ‘What is ruled out? An invasion. What is not ruled out? Everything else.

On second thought the Brits are probably paying off AQ not to hit them, after all they were more than willing to turn the plane bomber out of their jail.

It’s not that simple though is it?

The Taliban, Chavez and Farakhan are against the strikes.

Are you with them then?

It’s not simple. It’s a mess.

A mess I think we might have been better off just staying out of.

Your support of AQ noted.

Don't speak for me, you're not smart enough.

Your support for Gaddafi, responsible for the killing of 189 American citizens is noted.

Your call for the hanging of the Brits, who are the only ones brave enough to go after Gadaffi, is also noted.

I tell you what.

When you identify an Al Qaeda figure, whether it be in Libya or anywhere, you remove that creature from the planet.

While we have Gadaffi, the murderer of 189 Americans in our sites, we need to remove him.

Best.

The Brits may still be holding a grudge because the Libyans trained the IRA bombers/terrorists in their desert training camps.

With all those boots on the ground, it would have been a realtively simple task to penetrate the rebel army, get a good reading on who they are and what they want, and report that vital political intelligence back. After all, it might have been a bit of a good idea to find out who we were crawling into political bed with before having unprotected political sex that coud give us some really bad STDs or, far worse, produce a Rosemary's Baby.

You're the one who said the we should kill the Brits responsible for the targeting of Gadaffi.

Yet it's Gadaffi, and now it's who ever killed 200 Americans soldiers in Lebanon that you defend.

And you are assuming that this isn’t exactly what has taken place?

I personally don’t know. Cannot rule it out though, I do share your concerns on the nature of the opposition. It it pretty much undisputed that it contains islamist elements.

Yet their leadership talks a good game about democracy.

I don’t trust them.

I agree. This will not sit well in the muslim world. (Prepare for a LOT of trouble).
I mean they allready accuse us (since years) that we are just a bunch of
imperialist thugs who bomb everything out of our way which stands beside us and the black gold.
And sorry to say but at the moment we look exactly like this!

I think there is a war crimes court already in existence, run by the UN and the third world countries, that is unless you have gotten it changed. But the no fly zone came from the UN, if you party with the fat lady you need to dance with her.

This is insanity. We have no reason to be over there much less assasinating this particular leader. And the UN resoltion said nothing about assassination. If we want to assassinate leaders why not look at Venezuela, NK or Iran? Those countries pose more of a threat to the US than Libya. What the heck is going on here?

You're certainly entitled to your opinion. I however, don't agree with it.

I don't recall the Brits, the US or any country giving up their sovereignty to the UN.

Talk of it up here....

Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon...

In an interview Saturday on CBC Radio's The House, Cannon said Canada is "open to all options" in responding to the Libyan crisis.

When asked by host Kathleen Petty if that includes "boots on the ground," Cannon said if that were required to "protect citizens that are being literally murdered by [Libyan leader Moammar] Gadhafi, that's what the resolution calls for."

I'm liking this less and less....
A no fly zone morphing overnight into much greater involvement.
And most important...Who are we helping??? Who is going to take control if G'daffy loses?

When JFK was first in office, one of the newsmagazines (US News, Time, or Newsweek, I dunno, probably US News) had a head-to-head comparison of how much time Ike had spent on the golf course compared with JFK.

Compared to assasinations of the leaders of NK, Iran, Venezuela we have no reason to focus on taking out this particular leader. And as you say we have no idea what follows him. No congressional authorization. They should start impeachment hearings in the House.

Anyone old enough to remember knows Gaddafi owes a debt to our country’s, and revenge is a dish best served cold.

Bomb the shit out of Gaddafi, see how much he like having a 747 worth of destructive force crashing into his town murdering his friends and family.

That, of course, is the $64,000 question. If we do nothing, then Gaddaffi will crush the uprising, killing lots of people in the process. If we intervene, then Al-Qaeda or Al-Qaeda aligned powers may take over. OTOH, if we intervene we might be able to influence who takes over. We may be able to oust Gaddaffi and cut out Al-Qaeda as well.
