U.S. okays non-lethal military surplus equipment to Libyan rebels

Video: Who’s in charge of the Libyan rebel army?


It’s no small question, not for the generals involved, not for the Libyan rebels, and certainly not for the Obama administration. The top two commanders in the field are Abdul Fatah Younis, Moammar Gaddafi’s former Interior Minister whose defection was an early key for the rebellion’s credibility, and Khalifa Belqasim Haftar, who defected from Libya more than two decades ago after the humiliating defeat of the war with Chad. Both claim to be leading the armed forces, and the rift and dissension in the chain of command could disrupt what little military resistance the rebels can muster against Gaddafi: (More @ link)

Goes a long way to explain those "rising gas prices". And of course, how there's not enough money in the U.S. budget, what with the need for cuts to help lower the deficit, to fund medicare and medicaid, but instead cut's are needed! Not to mention "Planned Parenthood" being a fulcrum point of contention for the GOP!

Let's just hope all this works out as wonderfully as it did when the U.S. created the Taliban and funded that Afghan campaign to fight Soviet Russia's invasion of the country. Big Grin

We really need to get rid of W. Jr. (Stephen Harper) here in Canada or we'll wind up in the same boat. As much as I agree with helping the Libyans with their plight I can't help but wonder why the Americans keep throwing their shit around when they clearly can't afford to. Leave it to the Brits, they'll fill in the void.

I might be ok with helping them too...if we had taken the time to clean up our messes in Iraq and Afghanistan. At this point I'm so sick of my money going to violence I'm wondering if I could be a conscientious objector through taxes: The money you are taking from me doesn't go to a damn thing I want or support, so stop taking my damn money. Call me back when we start spending more on education than we do on killing people.

That's a whole separate issue which I totally agree with, I won't go too far into the politics suffice it to say I'm sick of my government ignoring everyone, career politicians are a plague. We need Plato's republic up in this bitch.

As for Afghanistan and Iraq that would be a nice mess to be rid of but, let's be serious here, there's no way that's ending any time soon. You know what the sad thing is? If they had been left alone maybe they'd have revolted on their own just like the Egyptians and Libyans and then the west wouldn't be demonized.

As it stands the west will gain power over the intervened ones and Egypt will probably be very anti-west. When foreign governments expend resources for someone else's wars they never leave empty handed.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

I just don't get why there can't be a UN taskforce funded by ALL member nations and with the scope of installing a transitional government to provide free speech and free elections.

I swear the UN is so fucking impotent sometimes and all these other foreign powers exploit various countries they "help" and then westerners wonder why the whole world hates them. (I'm not just talking about yanks , mind you)

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!
