The Libya War Plans (Slowly) Take Shape: Wired.com

After two weeks of revolution and the deaths of thousands of Libyans, the Obama administration is starting to contemplate military action against the brutal Libyan regime of Moammar Gadhafi.

The United Nations Security Council has already sanctioned Gadhafi and referred him to the International Criminal Court following his violent suppression of Libya’s revolutionary movement, creating the contours of a hardening international position against Gadhafi. And now most U.S. nationals in Libya have now fled, removing what the Obama administration has considered an impediment to action.

So here comes the Navy. The Enterprise carrier strike group, last seen hunting pirates, is in the Red Sea — and may sail through Suez to the Mediterranean — and the New York Times reports that an “amphibious landing vessel, with Marines and helicopters” are there as well. The Financial Times adds that the British are considering the use of the Cypriot air base at Akrotiri as a staging ground to enforce a no-fly zone. Any envisioned military action is likely to be a multilateral affair, either blessed by the U.N. or NATO.

This is a little different perception than mine, concerning Ghadafi. I worked with a religious cult for 20 years. The founder's wife of our organization met Ghadafi at a night-club, in 1972. He got to know them as friends, and in the future they were guests in Libya.

 

They found him very hospitable, and that he really cared for the people of his country. People in the U.S., Canada or England will never hear the good side of Ghadafi.

 

He made a promise, that until the last citizen moved into their own home, he would live in a tent.--And he kept his promise! Have you ever known of a western politician who kept a promise??? I haven't.
