Nato 'apologises for hitting Libya rebels'
BBC ^ | 07 April 11

Posted on 04/07/2011 9:45:47 PM PDT by keat

abiya. Gen Abdelfatah Yunis said the deadly air strike had occurred despite a warning to Nato that the tanks were being moved to the front line. Nato said it was investigating the claim, without giving further details. Rebels said four rebels died, while local doctors told the BBC at least 13 fighters had been killed in the strike. "We would like to receive answers about what happened. We would like a rational and convincing explanation," Gen Yunis said. He also said such mistakes must not be repeated and called for better co-operation in the future

How much will the US have to pay in compensation? That will be next, if it has not already been demanded by the UN!

One could tell the rebels “you get what you paid for”

I was going to say killing the rebels was the first thing Obama’s done right.

Are they dropping bombs at high altitude leading to inaccurate bombing or could the front line be very close that NATO is hitting rebel forces?

I was just in an Obama birth cerificate thread and read on Trump’s Facebook Page:

“You cannot be President of the United States if your parents were not US citizens even if you were born in USA. The only way Obama could be President is if his dad had as a foreignor had become a US citizen BEFORE Obama was born. I think Donald Trump already knows this and even though he may not mention it specifically yet it’s probably where he’s coming from. Can you imagine what would happen criminally if it’s found out that Obama was not legally the President and he’s responsible for so many deaths in Libya. That would be the MOTHER OF ALL INTERNATIONAL WAR CRIMES.”

What would happen in an even we have a war started by a President which was not legit?

I wonder if anyone imagines the thoughts of the Russians lately, watching the keystone cops try to fight the camel commandos with high tech equipment by committee. They have to be wondering why they were so worried during the cold war, and more importantly, why they didn’t move right on in.

Swedish jets don’t use the same fuel as American fighters, so they could not be used. What, they need a can of “Heat” in every tank? or can they only fight if the air is cold?

Good gracious, now we talk of sending our people in. For what purpose under the heavens will this be in the interests of the United States, or even effective?

The Pharaoh has his head firmly stuffed and now our people will be lead into a fight the they don’t want, we don’t need, and the Libyans will not appreciate. Even Europe will not thank us for saving their oil.

My concern is for who is actually going to control the oil, and will that mean that they will sell less of it so our price of transportation will go up. After all, Obama says trade vehicles if you don’t like the price of gas. What an asshat.

I think the answer came to me. You'll have the Chris matthews of the media bringing back the Bush 2000 campaign and the old liberal term "selected and not elected" and saying what's the big deal. You had Bush as an illegit president and we have Obama, is probably what the liberal media will say.
