    President Obama authorized limited military action against Libya on Saturday, saying Moammar Gadhafi's continued assault on his own people left the U.S. and its international partners with no other choice.

    "This is not an outcome the U.S. or any of our partners sought," Obama said from Brazil, where he is starting a five-day visit to Latin America. "We cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people there will be no mercy."

    Navy Vice Adm. William E. Gortney, director of the Pentagon's Joint Staff, told reporters that U.S. and British ships launched more than 100 missiles on Libyan air defenses in an effort to lay down protection for a no-fly zone. The missiles targeted Libya's defense system, including "surface-to-air missiles sites, early warning sites and key communication nodes."

    Gortney said they hit more than 20 sites along the Mediterranean coastline, but the success of the mission, dubbed Odyssey Dawn, was not immediately clear.

    The head of Libya's parliament, Mohammed Abul-Qassim al-Zwai, called the strikes "barbaric" and insisted Libya had kept its promise of a cease-fire.

    "This aggression will not weaken us," he said.

    Two thoughts.

    1. America is going to fuck Gaddafi up.
    2. About fucking time.

    Well, Hugo has a really stable relationship with Gaddafi and he condemned the allied intervention.
    Zimbabwe, Syria, Belarus, and Algeria gave military aid to Gaddafi as well.

    The scary thing is that Gaddafi could defeat the National Transitional Council. If he does, he can get a shit ton more troops to fight against the allies.

    The one thing he can't do is stop the Allies from bombingscratch that, nuking him to kingdom come.

    Which, lets face it, could happen.

    Bombing the army of a tyrannical, insane dictator isn't going to violate any moral laws.

    Seriously.

    Yay more war, I wonder how long it will last ? ? ? I wonder what Rummy would have to say about that ? ? ? ? Perhaps "It is unknowable how long that conflict will last. It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months." Oh, sorry, you Repubs out there don't like it when I bring up the Bush years.

    It's funny, you're bringing up human rights in a thread concerning Libya and Gaddafi.

    Oh the irony.

    The title looks messed up now. It makes it look like somebody bombed the shit out of Libya, the US, Canada, the UK, and France. I feel it worked well the way it was before.

    I never said I think this scumbag and his pathetic army should be allowed to live....I just said that no matter how diabolical someone is....people will still defend their right to live......why do you think murderers only get a few years here? .....Its because they apparently have a right to live [​IMG]

    No matter how many people you kill....when judgement comes....they will not remember the right to live of all those who fell before you.....only yours
