About time someone other than us steps up to the plate and takes chage.

Does it really matter anyway.

We the US will be blamed for trying to take their oil.

US have said (Pentagon and Obama) he will not send ground forces and UN too. Now what they say ??
Pityfull governments. I hate them.



Just give it some time. Purposefully or not, the US will sooner or later be asked to participate and will do so. The supposed cautiousness is just to keep the home front calm. Obama will simply say that there was no other choice than helping the EU out. And that's only the beginning.


And just like obama's press secretary is backtracking on the signing statements issue - candidate obama criticized Bush for using them and then when president uses them himself - we will get a press release saying that obama really never said no U.S. boots on the ground, or it was a "miscommunication".

All just new ways for the administration to lie.

Libya conflict: EU awaits UN approval for deployment of ground troops


The EU has drawn up a "concept of operations" for the deployment of military forces in Libya, but needs UN approval for what would be the riskiest and most controversial mission undertaken by Brussels.

The armed forces, numbering no more than 1,000, would be deployed to secure the delivery of aid supplies, would not be engaged in a combat role but would be authorised to fight if they or their humanitarian wards were threatened. "It would be to secure sea and land corridors inside the country," said an EU official.

The decision to prepare the mission, dubbed Eufor Libya, was taken by the 27 governments at the beginning of April. In recent days, diplomats from the member states have signed a 61-page document on the concept of operations, which rehearses various scenarios for the mission in and around Libya, such as securing port areas, aid delivery corridors, loading and unloading ships, providing naval escorts, and discussing the military assets that would be required.




1,000 troops to help deliver aid / supplies. Not intended for combat but can defend themselves... 2 different articles with 2 different stories....

I dont exactly consider Infowars as MSM for starters, Secondly their article leaves out some key info. They paint it as an invasion, when in reality its 1k troops for aid / supply security.

You can`t describe the Nato forces as being neutral, i think that much is clear.
So the notion that an active participant, indeed an instigator and facilitator of the violence no less, can just walk in and start handing out candy`s to the natives, while simultaneously bombing them is beyond preposterous.

It reminds me of the bombing missions over Afghanistan, where the US Airforces B-1 bombers, would drop daisy cutters on the heads of Afghan villagers, and then another day they would drop ration packs and candy on the very same villagers.

The Libyans will resist and invasion/occupation of their country, just like the Afghans and Iraqis.
No doubt the msm will describe any resistance as "die hard gadaffists terrorists", not forgeting it will be a cake walk too.
