No quick end of the Libya-operation

Despite ongoing attacks of the international force, theres no end of the mission in Libya in sight.There are Disagreement on the objectives, and conflict in the command, and Gaddafi's not the goal.


Every day coalition forces fly the air attacks on targets in Libya, but an end to the mission for the North African country is still not in sight. Now, already expressed concern that head of state Muammar al Gaddafi may be contained despite the attacks on its troops, remains in power and force the international community in a dangerous stalemate.

Gaddafi has experience with it, to dig in and persevere until the storm has passed. He ruled Libya since 1986 and survived 42 years of heavy U.S. air strikes on his residence in Tripoli. The current mission in the narrowly defined mission objectives could encourage the Libyan authorities continue to ride out the crisis easily. Obama had already been assured that Gaddafi is not in itself aim of air strikes.

The coalition had to agree first on binding targets before the implementation could be planned, says the analyst. "If we want to sell the regime, then we must go further and attack Gaddafi's centers of power and ground targets, " said Cordesman.

  26. I don't think we should try to influence Libya's decisions

  27. This gave me a good perspective because up until now I haven't really known what has been going on over there

  28. America shouldn't get involved in this. Our first president said "Steer clear of foreign affairs"...apparently Obama never heard of that saying.

  29. I wonder how many other countries controlled by a dictator will go down.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like seeing all of these countries following suit and taking their governments back from the dictators.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Inspiring to see these countries take down their oppressive leaders. Makes me feel lucky to be in a democratic country

  32. Well Gaddafi has been a pain in the West's side for a long time now so, the way I see it, we should take any chance we can get to get rid of him and those like him

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pretty much agree with everything you say. Damn, speaking the truth.

  36. It's going to be another long war...
    I think Gaddaffi would rather take Libya with him with a nuke, than leaving peacefully.
    It worries me because it's a mess all around europe, you just can't help but wonder when the sh*t is going to hit the fan and get to us...

  40. Stuff is going on all around, people are mad at other people, some people want to be heard, some want to be be seen, some want to be leaders, some want to be feared...
    And many just want to have stuff even if they have to take it by force.
