Skip to comments.Libya: US May Arm Anti-Gaddafi Rebels
Posted on 03/24/2011 11:02:12 PM PDT by Jim 726
Western diplomatic sources have confirmed to Sky News that the US is considering the legality of arming the Libyan rebels.
One of the unintended consequences of United Nations' Resolution 1970 was to starve the rebels of the weapons they would need to take on Gadaffi.
It requires all UN members to "immediately take the necessary measures" to prevent the supply or sale of weapons to the Libyan government - with no exemption for anti-Gaddafi forces.
But Sky News now understands the US is looking at a legal framework to allow limited supplies of arms to the rebels, if they can prove they need them to defend themselves from attack.
Mark Kornblau, spokesman for US Ambassador Dr Susan Rice, confirmed it was a possibility.

Aren’t the Libyan “rebels” mostly al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood? When do the US and European mosques get their arms shipments?
...just like arming Osama 20 years ago.
Glenn Beck has this figured out real well.....from yesterday for those who did not see it earlier.... http://newzeal.blogspot.com/2011/03/must-see-glenn-beck-connects-dots-soros.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results...
I just get the feeling that the euros might be getting hoodwinked, that oil is going to other buyers if they get in power. So perhaps they will lose Libyan oil supply either way, qdaffy or rebels. Who knows, what a mess.
As per liberal doctrine; your dead body is proof you needed a gun.
... from a previous post
Screwed himself? Screwed America and the West...
He has taken America into Jihad... and beyond.
The ME? ... consolidating it for his brethren.
His first speech in Cairo... His speech in Indonesia included references against the Jews.
He has more than shown himself to be on side with muslims. Heck! He shares their same mantra....death to America.
Lose the ME? I dont thinkso....consolidate it in the name of Allah.
For Obama? Its the ..current policy from the white house.....the marginalization and destruction of America.
Obama , culturally never was an American as he carries many chips on his shoulder and as we see from his old culture at many levels. He feels for his Kenyan identity, he feels for his muslim identity developed during adolescence in Indonesia, and he feels his angst against white and America....DeSouza went to great lengths to detail this in his book.
Its all about death to America....death to the great satan!
from a previous posting, see second last paragraph...
His associations with the MB? His endorsement of the coup... These are the same guys who are shooting at our troops.
His drive against America is demonstrated in his unfettered support of the OIC driven UN.
All his acts are supportive of Islam.
One of the prettiest sounds on earth is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007
The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.
His biological father was a Muslim.
Because his biological father was a Muslim the Islam world thinks he is a Muslim.
His stepfather was a Muslim.
As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia. An Indonesian Madrasa.
Barack Hussein Obamas first and middle names are Arabic Muslim names.
Barack was the name for Mohammads horse. Husein, enough said.
Obama recited the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer, which includes a vow of fidelity to Islam, in flawless Arabic on a radio program. - Nikolos Kristoff, NYTs, 3-06-07 (***this one is a gottcha moment***)
On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on earth.
Obama belonged to Rev. Wrights (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.
Obamas said that the U.S. is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.
Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.
President Obamas religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.
Obama does not give gifts on Christmas.
Obama doesnt celebrate his birthday.
Obama falsely attributes Muslim participation in the founding of America.
Obama required that the cross be covered when he gave a speech at Notre Dame.
Christian symbol covered up during Obamas Georgetown speech
Obamas first major speech in office was a Muslim outreach speech in Cairo Egypt.
The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim, said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.
Obama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the days end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.
Obama tasked NASA with a mission of Muslim outreach.
Obama referred to his faith as my Muslim faith gaffe in an interview with George Stephanopolous.
Pushes Islamic freedom of religion but not Jewish or Christian freedoms. Several weeks ago he told Israel NOT to build settlements in East Jerusalem. But OK to build that Mosque at Ground Zero.
All this brings on a interesting question... how can America have any struggle against Islam, or protect herself with the most powerful muslim in the world sitting in the White House?
Be wary, wary aware ....and wary, wary afraid...get prepared for more creeping sharia...more than what is coming out of the White House today
Obama and his merry band of fools have sure screwed this up.
Members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group are released from prison in Tripoli after renouncing violence
Any connection to this release a year ago and what's happening now?
Arent the Libyan rebels mostly al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood? When do the US and European mosques get their arms shipments?
Is it legal for us to send aid to rebels affiliated with groups that have declared war on the US like al Qaeda?
I won’t even get into the fact that we don’t have money and should not be funding this for fiscal as well as moral and national defense grounds....
Someone in Washington should be pointing this out....Ryan, Boehner, Bachmann. Hey Washington...anybody home?
Apparently Obama has assigned ALL the costs of the Libyan, apparently-open-ended arrangement, to....the Pentagon Budget!
That's a good question. The KLA was declared a terrorist organization before we went in bombed the Serbs to protect the KLA and John McCain worked to arm the KLA in return for major campaign contributions.
0bummer gets away with depleting the military from both ends if the GOP led House does nothing.
Providing arms to the rebels would be an exceedingly stupid action.
Hussein, therefore, is more likely to follow through with such action.
So we’re going to give them guns that only protect civilians, not those guns that kill people?
I know that’s not it, but it illustrates the silliness of trying to only provide weapons that are adequate to hold off government forces without providing any that will actually be used in an advance on government forces. There are very few exclusively defensive weapons.
This is Farce warfare at a level that makes Vietnam look like a Patton campaign by comparison.
That’s great - so now the taxpayers are footing the bill for a rebellion of folks who’d kill us all in our sleep if they had half a chance.
This world makes no sense.
Probably already have. All the unaccounted for money flying around had to go somewhere.
Count on it, in a few days, there will be headlines that they’ve killed our own soldiers.
It was a trap. The House votes to finance this and if/when any one of them even thinks about questioning his eligibility or authority, he pulls out the voting record.
Imagine you make munitions, or are a banker or investment banker getting free money from Uncle Ben.
Then the world starts to make a lot of sense.
Every weapon we give to the Libyan rebels will one day be used against us..
And that my FRiend, is the plan of the obama administration, the Democrat Party, and the main stream media.Israel will also get its share of attention from same weapons.
NO; I don’t want my Tax $$$$ to fund Alqaeda! This makes me ~almost~ want to become a federal tax-protestor!
Obama Regime wants to disarm anti-Obama Tea Party (the "bitter clingers").
