Libya.......Boots on the Ground ?

There is mention on the BBC web site that President Obama has authorised covert action in Libya , presumably in support of the rebels . Also that in fact American and British Special Forces are already there anyway.

Does this suggest to you, in tandem with the defection of Moussa Kouassa to Britain, that the policy towards Libya is now hardeneing ?

Any views and comments ?

  • In all matters of War, I feel that the President as a Boss in defence of our American people did his part to help to keep our good standing with Allies that have asked for our help to level the playing field to protect and help our Allies. In hopes that if we need their help at a future time. That we will stand side by side to defend our Country with the Alies that we have helped in defence of thier country.

  • Why am I not surprised. Tell me..what is the objective...? IMO if a single boot hits the ground there he ought to be have Articles of Impeachment brought against him. He has no authority whatsoever to do this. His little war has already cost us almost..if not already $600 million dollars.

  • There was a man on some news channel within the past couple fo days who said he saw us headed for WW 3 with everything going on in lYbia and Syria. Wish I could remember who he was and what news channel. He is on to something.

  • This type of surgical warfare always requires "boots" on the ground to paint the targets...not the Tomahawks but all of the other precision bombing. He lied from the get-go and he is still lying...It would all be winding down if he had cut off the head of the snake. Calypso Louie got to him and reminded him what they talked about when he sat at his table in Chicago...Farrakhan is a friend and supporter of Khadafi, as is Jeremiah Wright.

  • I, too, think we are headed into another war.

    The bad thing is Obama will have us fighting WITH our enemies.
