"We will maintain the pressure on regime front-line troops to show NATO is resolute in its determination to protect civilians..."
Laughable. Then after that comes this: "The alliance urged civilians to move away from the loyalist forces it’s targeting in an effort to reduce civilian casualties. NATO carried out three air strikes overnight on Tripoli."
As if night bombing raids over heavily populated Tripoli is helping civilians.
War = Peace
Bombing = Saving Lives
Creating Unrest = Ending Unrest
And then of course remember how we are trying to cut down on the deficit. HA HA HA. Just throw another 25 million at another useless war. And remember that is only the beginning. This war will draw more and more forces in a la Vietnam. And Libya is only a staging area, a small skirmish being acted out as part of a larger world war geopolitical scheme that will ultimately bankrupt completely the U.S. and UK and possibly other allies if they continue on this path. The U.S. Dollar will die. The present leadership in the West will lead their countries to ruin. It's all set up and exactly as unavoidable as hitting the ground after jumping off a cliff. Splat goes the Western World. Prepare for impact.
