Libya

Its no longer a question of military action, but how extensive that action will be.

Coalition forces declare military action:
Allied Powers Declare Military Action Against Libya - FoxNews.com

US launches Tomohawks:
West Pounds Libya with Missiles; Gadhafi Vows Retaliation | News | English

Obama statement:
Obama Says Allies Acting to Keep ?Tyrant? From Attacking Libyan Civilians - Bloomberg


Typical Democrats spewing their typical bullchit to make people happy:
Quote:
"The U.S. military will be playing a supportive role in this action. We will not have troops on the ground; instead we are providing strategic support where we have unique capabilities to the Arab and European nations that are taking the lead,” said Democratic Rep. Howard Berman
No boots on the ground my ***. Those Tomohawks aren't going anywhere without our guys there to provide intel on where they need to go, paint the targets for them (point a laser designator at the target for the missile to track and lock on to), and confirm the hits.

The US Navy SEALs were probably there at least a week ago, and it would not surprise me if some US Army Rangers were in the region as well. A lot of "forward recon and intel" goes into these operations before the first missile is launched.

No matter how much ordnance we drop on a wayward nation, it still requires "boots on the ground" to effect a change in leadership. Think Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan!

However, this sh*t ends up, I just don't think it is worth any American blood. It's not as though a "free Libya" is going to donate crude oil to us a way of saying thanks. Jeez.....Iraq and Kuwait should have done that for us long ago. Saudi Arabia did not show us much gratitude, either, as we basically saved their sorry butts from Saddam Hussein's war machine.

How about we start harvesting our own oil and we can tell all the ragheads and OPECkers to pound sand?

that gadhafi is a sick a s s hole. i saw his interview, and when they asked him questions he would giggle, and say his people loved him. i personally don't think we need to be in another war right now. i wasn't big in the one in iraq either, but my support goes out to the troops regardless all the way. i am gonna be excited to see what all the liberals who ''voted for obama, because we didn't want another 4 years of bush with mccain who would probably start a war in iran, and anywhere else he felt like'' think about this. i'm really gonna love seeing what all those who voted for obama, because he wouldn't ''push us into another war'' think about this. if this was bush right now there would be a s h i t storm. all the celebrities right now would be coming out, and all the bands calling for bush's impeachment, and to charge him with war crimes. that's exactly what was going on after afghanistan, and iraq. just like when gas prices went up on bush's watch people were ready to tear him up. now that it's happening under obama everyones got other excuses. it's gonna be interesting to see how this plays out.

I just love how the nation is broke.... how much does a Tomahawk Cruise missile run? X 124 = Allot of tax dollars? For what, I mean yeah He's a nut and killing his own people and all... but he's been that way for how long now? As much money they just dumped in those missiles not even mentioning forward Recon, planning, and whatever else it took to make this happen could have went a long way on the border issues with Mexico. But that's right, Obama was down in Brazil on vacation..... I'm just waiting for the libtards to blame this on Bush....
