CNN is reporting that Obama has approved the CIA on the ground in Libya. As most are aware from the Afganhi conflict, the CIA his it's own military force. Also, CNN is now reporting stories about Libya's stockpiles of mustard gas. Guess the WMD lies that worked for Bush in Iraq are now going to be put to use in Libya to further the conflict.

I guess since the Libya's forces have retaken some of the oil port cities, good ole Obama changed his mind about forces on the ground. Yeah right! Like they weren't already there from the start.

Hey, I saw that too tonight on CNN. Don't know what to think but figured it would end up like this sooner than later. It apparently has and to be honest, I never in a million years thought Obama would do this. I'm not sure why, maybe because I thought he was into getting away from wars, and getting our troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq and thought he resented inheriting those wars, but now this? I guess he believes in it, but I'm not sold. I'm certainly no expert in the field of politics, just giving my simple, yep, simple opinion.

Just horrible...you have to question why the heck they don't want to eliminate the guy...is it to perpertuate a war which would include getting troops on the ground? I'm sure it would have been just as easy to take out Gaddafi and this thing would have ended a bit quicker and by quicker I mean just like Afghanistan (sarcasm) because all though there are rebell forces trying to out him who the hell knows what side they are on. I try to be balanced when ripping on Bush and Obama but this has to put a nail in his coffin with respect to his approval rating but as I said before this guy will still getting voted in again. If I'm rambling I blame the cold medicine but CIA as mentioned is it's own army in itself they are the great ones with all the fantastic intelligence when is comes to WMD as mentioned earlier...this is just a crying shame and nobody there is necessarily going to be better off unless you work in the oil business.

Boots on the ground and next...

Arming the opposition.

The easiest way to predict how this will all play out is to assume that everything we are told will not be done, will be.


British Prime Minister David Cameron told the House of Commons on Wednesday that he has not ruled out arming the Libyan opposition, but added that Britain has not made the decision to do so.



Clinton and Gates made clear that no decision had been made on arming the rebels, with Congress members from both parties saying they believed it would be a bad idea, according to participants.


I especially like this part of not needing permission. Who needs permission when you make your own laws?


Legislators from both parties said after Wednesday's House briefing that Clinton told them the administration acted within the requirements of the War Powers Act and needed no congressional authorization for further decisions on the mission.

How long before it's not just CIA troops. How long before standard U.S. troops boots are on the ground. How long before were not just protecting civilians? But we want their leader out for good? The news said he was just running his mouth about western imperialism. They said the coalition was their for freedom.

Well he was right, this is western imperialism, this is about oil, this is about corporate greed, corporations, the people who really okay ed this operation, not Obama.


Since when has any country gone into another strictly for their freedom? Never, we went into panama not to help the rebels to build the panama canal. France helped us in the revolutionary war because they wanted to cripple Brittan their enemy. We went into Iraq not for freedom of the Iraqis but for oil and corporate profit. etc.

The U.S is a capitalist society, a capitalist society is run by people with capital, and they don't care how they get it. When the U.S. invades a country their is a reason but not the reason they tell the people through their government mouthpieces like CNN and Fox.

This was about corporate profit from the beginning, and the rebels were their excuse they were the way to emotionally touch the American people, so they would okay this. Don't get me wrong i'm glad the rebels are fighting for their freedom, I just don't the reason America entered.



all the best,
Jacob

I suppose technically sending in troops is different than sending CIA.....but IMO it makes no difference.

CIA has it's own military and they are made up of mostly ex-Spec Ops soldiers from the US military.

America isn't a capitalist society. It's corporatist society that only cares about corporate interest.

Wait, people on ATS are surprised by this? Really, are you serious? I'm sure there were "boots on the ground" prior to the announcement. Some one had to find the targets for the air craft and missles.

We didn't learn from the war between the Afghans and Russians. We will, yet again, sponsor "freedom fighters" without really knowing where their loyalties lie. Then, in a few years, we'll be surprised by their actions against us.

Though, the French got us into this mess, the US will be holding the bag in the end. Right now, with all of the talk from the President about regime change, we have to support the rebels, lest Gaddafi wins. Should be an interesting couple of weeks.

Oh, by the way, whatever happened to that thing that happened over on that large island over by China? Is the US providing any help to them or are we throwing our money into another war? Bet we could have used the millions upon millions of FED dollars to boost our economy and have a lot left over to help the Japanese recover. Just a thought...
