Rocket Ignites Blaze Near Tripoli Airport, Libya in Chaos
Washington Free Beacon ^ | July 28, 2014 | Patrick Markey

Posted on 07/29/2014 4:53:18 AM PDT by expat1000

A rocket hit a fuel storage tank in a chaotic battle for Tripoli airport that has all but closed off international flights to Libya, leaving fire-fighters struggling to extinguish a giant conflagration.

Foreign governments have looked on powerless as anarchy sweeps across the North African oil producer, three years after NATO bombardment helped topple dictator Muammar Gaddafi. They have urged nationals to leave Libya and have pulled diplomats out after two weeks of clashes among rival factions killed nearly 160 people in Tripoli and the eastern city of Benghazi.

This is what you get when Obama intervenes. The work of Satan continues.

Yep - I often have debates with a lib I work with - I asked him how he would be reacting if Bush were doing what Obama has done. Just as I explained that he recently denied "help" to his own son while thinking it's OK for the government to take his money to give to those far less worthy - he tried to think and could only simper like an idiot...libs have something broken in their brains that defies all logic and resists all truth.

Actually, what is unfolding are the pent up problems of generations now bubbling up to the surface. Satan is not involved

DownInFlames, the "board" as determined that you have not been sufficiently brain-washed, please report to "re-education camp". Until you report, repeat after me:

Sad, but you know this is what the lefties are saying...

I presume this doesn't rise to the level of chaos required for 0's FAA to issue a no-fly NOTAM...

Lets fix this statement - “Lying from behind”.

Mac daddy needs to be behind so he can stab you in the back.

C'mon al, at least *try* to get it right. The correct name is *Khadafi*, or Gaddhafi, or something like that.

This can be resolved easily. Send in the Secretary of State “long face” skerry. Have the peace-maker windsurf into tripoli and make peace. After all, he is sooooooo effective at peace-making. By the way, this traitor “served” in viet nam.

“Bush was an idiot for bombing and taking out Qaddafi”.....

You may recall that the hostile actions ceased when this happened. The entire Libyan Navy (2 destroyers) were sunk at that time, “Omar's” house was bombed. Things were pretty quiet for some time, quiet until odumbo came along and the terrorist’s then knew America was then extremely weakened.

Someone better start looking at the big picture. What is to the east of Libya?

Obama went against Egypt for a reason. The Bruthas are after Egypt and they will do it via Libya. That’s a huge border for Egypt to defend. Especially in its current state.

Looks like Jordan will be the last domino to fall. Funny thing. The only country that can save Egypt and Syria is Israel.

The "geopolical" out look is very similar to the late 1170's. A small Christian/Jewish out post in a sea of Islam. Well at least in the 1170's Islam was a tad more civilized then today.

Things are not looking good for Egypt, Jordan and Israel. I also worry about Ethiopia.

REAGAN was the one who put the first fear of the USA in Quadaffi.

GW did too. KaDaffy Duck gave up his nuke program and WMD after George told him that, he too, might end up in a spider hole with a suitcase of Benjamins.
