Just announced on CNN. Sarkozy expected to speak shortly
Wow, good for France for stepping up.
Qaddafi is flat out nuts, and while I wanted something to be done, what I really wanted to see is someone aside from us finally take some responsibility. It doesn’t take a superpower to deal with Libya.
My favorite tweet of the day so far: “Good, you deal with it France. We’re busy blowing sh*t up elsewhere.”
So now it might be a rebel plane too?
It was either LAF or FLAF... I guess we’ll find out later.
FLAF has about a dozen MIG 23’s. So, yeah, could be either.
This is embarassing... The French President is ready to kill a tyrant for Liberte, Egalite et Fraternite, and the USS Enterprise steams in a circle, un used while her commander-in-chief watches basketball.
“Four arab countries in this...UAE, Qatar, Jordon, Morrocco”
Forgive me, but I have posted this video several times, can’t help it. Catchy tune in French and Mirage 2000’s terrain following in Morocco....just another refuel and they are in Libya.....frankly I have no idea why we have to send forces at all. These French pilots seem more than up for the job.
Go Sarko Go! Get that blotch on human race Gaddafi.
as another poster so eloquently put it, “Let the games begin” .... oh boy ... do I ever agree this is what is about to take place .... islamic games and America takes another knife to the throat.
That was one of the rebels own MiG-23s downed over Bengahzi.
We have trained NATO air forces for over 30 years in modern combat. This is something I know. There is no reason not to use that capability. We should definitely oversee the operations and guide them, we are the teachers BTW. (No Union involved, just dedicated whipper snappers)
I agree with the fact of over 30 years in modern combat training, and should oversee and guide, I would simple prefer iran as the target. zer0 and his minions made a mistake and said qudaffi must go, now NATO attacks Libya to help iranian backed rebels (imho) and iran's mullahs go free again along with amadinerjacket. This is the only point I am attempting to make. I simply believe the wrong side has been picked in Libya. I would have preferred America had stayed out of it. This is my opinion. No offense meant.
No offense at all. President Bambi told Muhammar to leave and then booked trips to RIO and Dublin. WE have a moron speaking for the US. NATO is more than equipped to handle this. Idiot needs to keep his mouth shut. He is purposely trying to discredit the office of the most powerful Nation in our time.
Could not agree with you more. Sigh ... on to the consequences, and regrettably there are always consequences, action <--> reaction ... sigh. I pray I am wrong, yet according to the laws of physics ... another sigh.
When you hold high office, playing by the hip doesn’t get you through. High Office means conviction and no lateral movement. Bambi is a fool.
Crap. Jenkins’ Ear was supposed to be a “little war”. So was Vietnam and the wawa ‘twixt the states (American Civil War). There’s no such thing as a “little war”.
Actually the dems have 50 million deaths with their support of abortion.
He was on the beach. He makes the picks, even women’s basketball, but does he watch? Probably satellite in Rio.
Gadhafi gives no credibility to the UN, which we here would normally agree..now we change flavor of the month. The Oil is in crisis especially with hot bed of activity all over the Middle East. Is it time to announce oil/gas production full steam ahead in the US, ANWR etc? Waits...
Where are all the protests on the Left like when Bush was in office "staying the course"?
I agree it was quite a rush to go to war with Libya. zer0 and his minions have their strike. They (zer0, his minions, the left and leftist) now have blood on their hands. I do believe the left / leftists are going to have a difficult time with blaming zer0, though no GOP is to blame this time. While I believe America should not have become involved in Libya and believe another front in this war should not have been opened in Libya, and if another front was to have been opened (as now is) iran should have been the target. Since America has begun (in Libya) though, I support our Military. zer0 and his minions (the left / leftist) can eat their poo. zer0 and his minions started this one.
