Let’s see…he murdered 250 or so with an airplane bomb!

Do we want him dead?  If we don’t, there’s something wrong with us in my opinion.  How soon we forget the victims, whose cries we can no longer hear.  Gaddafi can be easily beaten, given a no-fly zone, and that’s without us putting a boot on the ground.  And even if all we get out of it is another Gaddafi, maybe he’ll, the new Gaddafi, will be less likely to bomb a plane with American’s aboard.  The guys a scum ball and we should get him off our sole…or souls.  I see hand-held ground to air missiles being carried by the rebels and presume that’s our doing…but it’s time to do a lot more.  And I don’t mean our troops.  We have the technology, let’s use it.

Things aren’t looking good for the Libyan rebels, who were pushed by Gaddafi’s forces to the outskirts of the oil town of Ras Lanuf on Saturday. There has been intense fighting in Ras Lanuf for several days, and government planes have bombed the refinery and rebel checkpoint. Earlier this week, Gaddafi’s forces took back the town of Zawiya. As the rebels lose ground to pro-Gaddafi forces, they’ve been asking the international community to impose a no-fly zone: “The Libyans are being cleansed by Gaddafi’s air force. We asked for a no-fly zone to be imposed from day one, we also want a sea embargo,” said Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, head of the National Libyan Council. Although President Obama said “we are slowly tightening the noose on Gaddafi,” and that he hasn’t “taken any options off the table,” prospects for a no-fly zone looked less likely following a meeting of the European Union in Brussels. The Arab League is meeting in Cairo to discuss the possibility of a no-fly zone.
