On Man....Schuyler will come down on you like he did me when I posted the same thing a few pages ago.
Schuyler - Great info on the State Department not asking for the military for support.
I don't think the US government wants our military to get involved beyond our usual TR-1 and RC-135 reconnaissance of the area. We've been doing
that for decades. No secret there.
To add to the discussion. The reason the US won't invade or unilaterally impose a no fly zone has already been mentioned. We are damned if we do, we
are damned if we don't. In fact, some posters are already saying the USA is the cause of all this. Blame it on the USA game is the name of the game.
We would have to go through the UN to get that authority, and if you have seen my posts about the UN.....that will take awhile.
As for possible US special forces or agents secretly in Libya, I don't know anything about that. Hopefully, we won't know about that until every US
Citizen is out safe.
