With US bombs and missiles hitting Libyan targets, lawmakers and other observers want to know how long the fighting will continue and whether Muammar Qaddafi will be forced from power.

Senator Richard Lugar, senior Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, wonders "who it is in Libya that we're trying to support?"
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm Mike Mullen on ABC This Week "is speculating".
The Arab League Secretary General says the missile strikes and aerial bombing had gone too far and we just got started.
Then at the end we get:
SOUND OFF: Did the UN make the right decision in approving a no-fly zone?
“Obviously, the people who are against Qaddafi, but who?? Sen. Lugar asked on CBS’ Face the Nation. ?In eastern Libya, for example, a huge number of people went off to help the Iraqis against the United States in a war that still is winding down.?
The real question is not if Kadaffy Duck will be gone, but when will Barry Barack Soretoes Obama and Richard Lugar be gone?
...and who is calling all the shots on Libya? Who is leading this charge?
This is insanity.
What the hell are we doing bombing another 3d world muslim country?
They were doing a perfectly good job of killing each other off.
This is all about beefing up Obama’s credentials for the 2012 election.
Hillary Rodham Clinton has forged together an alliance or coalition of great powers? Is that why she was in Eygpt last week? OK is she is the political wonk, who is the military genius commanding these international assets?
If we are all smart, it will last as long as it takes to remove Kadaffy and his Family to the presence of Allah.
No solution that involves the survival of the Kadaffy Klan is acceptable.
No solution that involves the survival of any Muslim Brotherhood or Al-Qaeda fighters is acceptable.
I would rather attack Saudi Arabia.
No, Q-daffy was days away from overrunning the rebels.
The no-fly operation will degrade his assets and capabilities to the extent that the 2 sides are now pretty well evenly matched and can pound away at each other for years.
Actually a very clever move..
The pundits say he has no place to run. Not true. Several countries would be happy to take him & his millions/billions. Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, Pakistan, several African states, & maybe Saudi Arabia would take him in & shelter him from the Hague courts.
The closer the JDAMs come to that yellow streak on his back, the sooner he will leave.
BUT shouldn't those people in my Comment know something?Like Sen. Lugar, senior Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee or Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen?
In those outfits he always wears? that stands out..won't get far..and he would make a real ugly woman.
Remember when Kaddafi said: "We are content and happy if Obama can stay forever as the president of the United States."..[pander-pander]?
Before that, the Bush Adminstration and Condi Rice said the "scared straight" autocrat whom Ronald Reagan once said was a "mad dog" became, in the words of Rice, "an important model as nations around the world press for changes in behavior by the Iranian and North Korean regimes."
Now Obama is calling Rio a model for the Middle East. Rio is a safer choice for a model, I think.
How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time.
Can you name three similarities between Islam and fascism?
Can you name any?
They should and maybe they do and aren't saying - or maybe they don't know shit from Shinola.
