I think this situation is a ticking time-bomb that could blow in our faces at any time now:
US FIGHTER JET SHOT DOWN OVER LIBYA, 2 AMERICANS DEAD
What happens then?
I mean, you take a quick look at the whole political situation of Libya, and it seems a lot of the political support is coming from the fact that NATO
has been invincible up to the present moment- they have been bombing and shooting at Gaddafi's Thugs for 3 months now without any casualties at all.
I think that NATO's free ride with air-power is going to come to an end pretty quick.
Well, let me say that I think with those billions of dollars he somehow has, Gadaffi is going to get some pretty bad-a$$ hardware and is gonna buy
some pretty bad-A$$ mercenaries to use it. I don't know how many of you ever read read or played Tom Clancy books/games, but Gaddafi seems like the
perfect crazy-dictator to fit most of the villain characters in those stories.
Watch the video at the top of this page (don't know how to embed it):
For those of you who were too lazy to click on a link (I know you are out their), They have found some pretty heavy anti-aircraft weapons right at the
main Benghazi airport- the heart of the rebel stronghold. The Benghazi airport is pretty the much the way of entrance for all western people of
importance at the moment. Its lifeline-like status is reflected by the eerie confidence expressed by the Rebel soldiers, who seem to claim that
surface-to-air missiles found by an airport is not even the slightest of threats (TSA would agree; young children and elderly lady are much more of a
If those weapons hadn't been found, a plane full of American/Western soldiers or even diplomats and politicians could have been killed.
Then what would of happened?
I think an event such as this is bound to happen sometime before the mission ends- probably sooner rather than later as Gadaffi is probably starting
to turn to increasingly desperate measures at the moment- guerrilla warfare will probably be funded by the billions this guy has.
Such an act would be a political nightmare for any leader of the NATO mission. Such incidents have the potential to be a tipping point for this war
(It wouldn't be any stretch of the imagination to picture another False-Flag event).
Obama's excuse for the war in Libya so far has been (as outlined by Ron
The US is not TECHNICALLY at war with Libya as no ground troops are involved, and there is no direct "Engagement" with the Gaddafi forces.
So I guess according to Obama, bombing the Tripoli in a rain of Aircraft-Fire and shooting Gaddafi thugs from the air is not "war". I don't think
Obama has ever read the dictionary definition of war. Though I haven't either (I encourage anyone to correct me if I'm wrong), but doesn't it
involve one country physically engaging itself in another to complete a certain objective?
This will blow up in Obama's face when it happens. People and presidential hopefuls like Ron Paul are already suing
Obama over Libya (see
above link), and when the first American dies, these people are going to be all over Obama like a pack of wolves who have been waiting for the perfect
kill/meal. This issue could turn into one of, if the not main issues of the next election (except the economy, maybe), and it could open up the door
for people like Ron Paul to get his message to people fed up with war (especially if Ground Troops step in).
As soon as an American dies, Obama will be in the biggest political quagmire of his career- he started another war in which Americans have died. He
will be tied at 2 with W (He "lengthened" and intensified the Afghanistan mission- a war if there ever was one).
Could this soon-to-be-event push the US into another full-blown take-out-the-regime war?
Could it be the tipping point for another economic crisis, or maybe occur right at the start of one, especially seeing as how many countries in the
NATO-filled European Union seem to be worried about Greece's
Could this be the turning point for Politicians who have any last shreds of decency to end the blatant corruption and evil that has taken over the US
political system and government?
Or could it be the final eye-opener the average American needs to wake-up to reality? (I highly doubt this one, as I think beer, TV and food are still
a little more important that the blatant psychopaths who are running their country) ?
I think it will be at least a little bit everything, but not too much of one.
Kind of like cooking up your own little regular, typical day-of-geo-political-chaos-on-earth-meal. A little of dash of everything makes the most
interesting dish, but not too much of one, or the entire dish will be spoiled.
