BENGHAZI, Libya -- A plane has been shot down over the main rebel-held city in eastern Libya.

what’s to prevent the so-called rebels from shooting at our planes if we go in ? And if they do , what will keep us from blowing the crap out of them ?
Get coordinates on Gaddafi and blow his ass to hell .
Use our most effective ordnance .
That’s it , call it good .
Decapitation without Congress’ approval is generally frowned upon if an R does it... let’s see what happens if a Rat does it.
Not the place to risk having American Airmen downed and paraded.
I know exactly how the Rats do it. They will Google the Iraqi war and search for the republican responses to their "we need Congress' approval" and use those responses for this one.
They have absolutely no principles.
Kind of looks like one...
Obama will still choke on his morning Latte when he sees this on the front page of the morning paper in Portuguese.
Who are the rebels?
Not so,An American would.
Going to be hard to tell from the air, not to mention the Libyans also fly French aircraft. Wouldn’t want to have to do IFF in this environment.
Well, not now.
Benghazi is a port with an air base so presumably it would have air defenses. The rebels may be in control of some SAM or gun sites.
Yeah you got a point there
This could turn into a horror show
Thanks,you must be a flyer,God bless you.Have no idea what you said:)
