By the time the UN passes a bunch of resolutions to decry these actions everybody will be dead.

I'm thinking these are Saudi pilots firing on folks. Saudi Arabia doesn't want this stuff spread anymore and this appears to be the line drawn in the sand. Like the above poster said this will make many think twice now before going out on some peaceful protests.

Send in the US Marines,,,,"from the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Triploi."
They have been there before.


I'm sure the marines are already there trying to get our diplomats out or at least protected. If they get fired on this could get real ugly. There were also reports they were brining in foreign fighters from other african nations to clean house.

Yeah, I needed to read all the way down to where is says CNN could not independently confirm.

It does seem to be corroborated by the two fighter jets landing in Malta. They were Mirage F-1 fighters. Old, but still serviceable against civilians it seems.

This just makes me sick.

Something really does need doing and fast but what? send in the army and cause more death? Which is the greater evil I wonder?

I wish someone or something could make this all end peacefully...


that being said... dying for peace.

Yea there are more and more reports coming out it's not that i do not believe this could be happening it just seems unreal that there is not one photo of it yet given that it has been going on for a while now with 20 minuet intervals.

This from the BBC:


Ominous news from our colleagues over at BBC Monitoring: "'Libyan military source confirms orders were issued for the aerial bombardment of Benghazi within two hours,'" reported Al-Arabiya TV in an urgent screen caption at 1947 GMT.

Well, what would you rather be doing? Looking for cover, make yourself hidden... or stand out in the open taking pretty pictures of the giant shadow that is about to drop on you?...

I'm pretty sure Tripoli is visible from a distance. Were i outside of the city i sure as hell would be taking pictures of fighter jets dropping bombs within it's limits and be doing everything i could think of to get them out as fast as possible.

I read the Quatar is calling for an emergency meeting of the Arab League to discuss Libya, but I haven't heard a peep out of the UN yet. They should be in an uproar over this atrocity.

This,if true,is beyond evil.
Imagine the same situation transfered to your country:

It would be like Obama ordering the airforce to bomb DC

David Camergoon bombing London

Merkel bombing Berlin...

Now Sky news are saying that Heir Gaddaffi is "en route to Venuzuela."
Wouldn't it be a crying shame if NORAD thought his plane was a hostile airboune vehicle...a HAV

And wouldn't it be a shame if some semi automatic missile defence program "accidentlly" shot down said HAV?

I mean no one would get blamed for a computer error would they?
with Gadaffi

I remember this clown from the 80's very well. Even though he has been fairly quiet of late he is still crazy, an enemy to all western countries and it does not surprise me one iota that he would do this sort of thing to his own people. Even his son "is alleged" to have said they will fight till the last drop of blood. Get him out! Mubarak is an angel next to this terrorist!. Looks like the military is starting to make their choice!

After seeing this it gives me a greater appreciation for our Founding Fathers and those who fought for this country, United States of America, and what they had to go through against the British Empire.

Oh i'm sure the UN and the US are involved, they're doing a lil practice run before they start in on us.

no one can be trusted at this point of the game, they've made it abundantly clear its time to rid the world of the working class and the poor

I really don't see our military doing this in the US.
There are reports that military members are fleeing Libya

Ah, the spirit of a true tyrant shining through. I can hear the cheers of tyrants and dictators the world round cheering at Gadaffi... it is truly sick.

This world has never been able to shed itself of tyranny despite 2 world wars and there is no question we will see more of this in the near future. Even potentially in the United States of America. Take notes citizens when governments kill their own people; those people will be you.

Note to self... peaceful protest != armed revolt. Bullets do speak louder then words.

Feb 21 (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon had an extensive discussion with Libya leader Muammar Gaddafi on Monday, condemned the escalating violence in Libya and told him it "must stop immediately," a U.N. spokesman said.
