The question is..did he actually call for a cease fire? Its on TV now that they continue to fire. So, if Gawdawful has called for a cease fire, and the NATO forces ignore it, then they have a real problem on their hands and in the eyes of the AYrabs, this wont go over so good.

WSJ now reporting that Libya has seized the crew of an Italian ferry boat...

Libya is in desperate need of a navy vessel.

obama will let him stay in power in exchange for changing Gaddafi’s name to something we can all spell.

We should have assassinated him 2 weeks ago. True, we are no longer capable of that, but we could have contracted Mossad. Left alive he’ll be a bigger problem than ever. We blew it. Again.

Cease Fire = Kadafi wins

Obama said Kadafi must go.

Cease fire means he’s not going anywhere.

That's your opinion. but if Obama really wanted Gadaffi out of Libya he would have supported military action 4 weeks ago.

That would be the reasonable thing for a leader to do. Who are we talking about again?

Not as fast as when Reagan hit him. And he didn’t poke his head out again for 20 years. But much like Saddam, Khadaffy was always putting money to “worthy” causes and keeping his fingerprints off bad deeds.

What’s really sickening is the Khadaffy will probably still walk away with money on the order of the Powerball lottery and retire to a Caribbean island. I’m sure there’s a resort owned by some Saudi prince that would love to take him on as a full-time resident. They’ll probably give him a terrorism lifetime achievement award (in the monetary support category) in an underground ceremony.

Exactly...

” Hudna, the second Arabic word translated in English as “peace,” means cease-fire, a temporary truce.

When the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, for example, proposes a hudna with Israel, it’s hailed in the Western media as a peace proposal. It is instead a tactical, temporary break in hostilities, giving Moslems time to re-organize, re-arm, then renew the Jihad against the kafirs when they can be most caught off-guard. “

Heard this today on Fox I think.

And then there was the discoteque bombing in Germany that targeting American servicemen. Reagan did the right thing and bombed Khadaffy’s house (and “accidentally” hit the French Embassy). Khadaffy was still a little bastard that needed to get whacked, he was just a lot less blatant after that.

Yeah, real busy... /s

Heard his speech (the first one) yesterday in Brazil -- he talked about how great it was that they were doing offshore drilling for oil and how the US was going to import it. I yelled and banged the table -- we could be drilling for our own oil and giving jobs to our own people but for him doing his best to shut down US production.

Good for Obama for thinking about Brazil's oil drilling! It's only fair, after all just a few months ago he gave Mexico millions to fund their drilling in the gulf of Mexico. Surely you remember that! It happened during the same week he banned the US from any drilling in the same place due to the BP leak. I see nothing wrong with that picture << s a r c

I would say Lockerbie was worse than the disco bombing by orders of magnitude and supposedly was conducted as revenge for the Reagan bombings in 86.

meanwhile in Rio the obama’s and the mother in law are having yet another party and dinner.
The GOP will not demand that obama comes back because of the attacks he started.
The media will try and quickly claim victory for obama but ignore why he’s over in Rio on our dime having a vacation with his family and mother in law, then ordering massive bombing since he ignored this threat for a couple of weeks.
The debt , economy middle east and north Africa is in turmoil.

Now can the media actually get a map and see that North Africa is not the middle east it is North Africa and I have no clue why they cannot call it that but maybe they think Africa is a black place and because they see no blacks then it must be the middle east.

What an utter sham we have with the freeloading family, a so called media and a cowardly GOP.

Yet another war.
Bush went to congress
Obama went to Rio
and the elites and anti war crowd are silent
Now we’ll probably have some on the right wanting this war too because they are too afraid of facing obama but they will do it in a way of we must support our troops

Foreign policy what policy I’m on vacation on your dime LOL what suckers and I have a media who covers for me while I wage war on my vacation LOL.

That sounds REAL similar to what a FReeper on an Afghanistan thread once described as "The Tora Bora Shuffle".

what was he supposed to do?
HUH Not go on vacation and take his family and mother in law on our dime.
Set up a no fly zone weeks ago instead of a massive bombing campaign wile on vacation.

the middle east, North Africa is in turmoil.
Economy , debt in crisis
Japan

but wait what is he supposed to do.
I can tell you he is not supposed to be doing what he is now that’s for sure.

If we had a free and fair press then they would ask these questions.
If we had a GOP with balls and not cowards they would demand he come back from his vacation.

Exactly who are we supposed to be protecting anyway we have no clue who these people are.
