BREAKING: NATO Airstrike On Gaddafi Home Kills Son But Not Colonel Crazy
— DrewM

It's pretty dangerous to be one of Muammar's kids.

It has been reported that Colonel Gaddafi's son, Saif al Arab Gaddafi, has been killed in a Nato-led airstrike.

It is believed that he was killed at his home in the capital, Tripoli, but his wife and the leader - who was at the house at the time - are in good health.

He was the sixth son of the Libyan leader and has been viewed as the most low profile of his sons.

So, I'm still unclear if the purpose of the NATO mission is to topple the regime and/or kill Gaddafi or just protect civilians. I'm not a military expert but I'm not clear on how bombing someone's home protects civilians hundreds of miles away. Actually, I do (no Gaddafi, no danger) but I was told by the President that killing Gaddafi wasn't part of our military strategy. It's almost like Obama and the rest of the NATO leaders are saying one thing but acting very differently.

Don't get me wrong, we should have offed Gaddafi years ago but I seem to remember something about Presidents lying and people dying not too long ago. If I recall correctly, it was a bad thing (even though there weren't any actual lies back then). Now suddenly talking out of your ass about policy and military goals is a good thing, Smart Diplomacy one might say.

Let's just be honest...we want this guy dead and we're going to kill him. Is that so hard?

33 I have many lib friends, and oddly enough, Libya is the final straw for them with Obama.  Most are union people (I live in Mich) so they were already having to try to convince themselves that he was alright, but the war and Gitmo are too much for them.  Barry is a slime, but he is his own worst enemy.  Gas prices and Gitmo and Libya re going to be his undoing.  But Trump-with all his talk about China and jobs-is also helping to chip away at Obama wrt support.  They may be union people, and they may be libs, but they have families, drive, and eat just like us, and there is just too much not to like about Obama.

No shit.  Libya had made and relatives of terrorists had accepted settlements. Relations between Libya and the US improved in 2003 when Tripoli stopped working on weapons of mass destruction.

The decision led to the restoration of US diplomatic ties with Libya in 2006.

In turn, it was removed from America's list of countries sponsoring terrorism.

This makes about as much sense as bombing Vietnam.

76 Remember back in the days when wars were illegal, even after they were authorized by Congress? It was a simpler time, when taking out heads of state that allegedly posed no threat to the US or it's interest was a bad thing. All those impassion speeches from Congress Critters about "air raiding villages & killing civilians". *sigh* Yup. Good times. Not like now when declaring war without Congressional authorization and going after dictators who really do pose absolutely no threat to the US or it's interests and who, not so long ago, we bent over backwards to praise as a changed man and to whom we went so far as to help to free and return a prisoner who had killed hundred of Americans. *sigh* It's enough to make a soul nostalgic for the calls for impeachment of President who actually follow the Constitution and weren't total hypocrites.

If we are going to go medieval on the enemy then let's not stop(or to be frank even start) at one very insignificant loony-tunes despot. Let's carpet bomb Iran into utter collapse just to discourage all the others by the example. But we won't do that will we. Nor should we. Not happy about this. Not happy at all. I really don't see how anyone can be. As was famously stated "It was worse than a crime; it was a mistake."

110 The left screamed at Bush for invading Iraq with express UN direction. He did have resolutions, but they did not include the enforcement-by-invasion authorization. Illegal war, they said. In order to get his piece of paper from the UN and avoid veto by Russia and China, the brits and french (and America, playing third banana) wrote the authorization such that it did not authorize anything except "protecting civilians." Whatever that means. But now NATO is clearly exceeding the UN-determined limit on war. Illegal war? Nah, of course not, it's so totally different, what are you stupid?

Bush had made a deal with Kdaffy, give up the WMD programs and try to stay outta trouble and we would leave him alone.  So of course that makes him an enemy now.  Egypt was an ally, under the bus they went.  Iran and Syria are sworn enemies and are thus be be left unmolested to murder their own people.  The big test will be whether the House of Saud goes under the bus.  The final test will be Israel.  Expect Obama to try to betray both, the question is whether the Democrats will sit still when he really brings the crazy.

Hence, the price of oil no longer is an issue for the Saudi's since Barack Obama has made it plain by his actions that he would stab them in the back at the first opportunity, whereas before they did everything they could to limit price increases during these periods of turmoil.  The cooperation is over until a GOP POTUS is the new sheriff in town.

If this were a regular job, he'd have quit long ago. He's got a pattern of quitting -- from community organizing, from his corporate job, from the law. He likes jobs where he can get by without doing anything more strenuous than voting "present." But in this case, the perks are too good to give up.

235 I don't really care anymore. I just feel that the Islam groups have made it almost impossible to make difference between the moderates and the crazy. Until I see parades in this country and see the moderates come out and say the Islamist attacks are wrong then I put them into the same category as the nutjobs. Sorry, I just cannot get past it and I never will .. at this point. I hate them and everything they stand for and most of America has no idea about what really goes on in the extreme Islam beliefs. What will it take for people to see the truth about them? probably a mall attack on white young girls ... but maybe not.

Apparently it's the equivalent of "Carthage is [just begging to be] destroyed." So yes, and thanks for the gracious correction. (Now I know why we're called Morons.)
