U.S. and Allies Strike Libya

Obama or Bush, it doesn't really matter does it?

Gunfire, explosions heard in Tripoli - CNN.com

It's being discussed in the existing Libya thread, FYI

Gaddafi 'may have fled Libya' as Tripoli burns

I checked before posting this new topic.


I did not see it being discussed.


Please post a quote.

I thought it started today, at least the talking about it. No links in there to news report, but I got the impression they felt they weren't needed at the moment, as everyone participating in the thread knew it was going on.

This appears to be the first post with the news:

Gaddafi 'may have fled Libya' as Tripoli burns

It's entirely possible I'm misunderstanding the last page or so of posts, and if so - sorry.

This is the last comment I read on that thread:

I think the numbers of protesters who initially took to the streets in February were significantly high. However, I agree that his doesn't necessarily imply a united opposition.

We were discussing it there. We were talking about whether or not the Opposition will be able to fill the vaccum effectively if and when Gadhaffi's regime comes crumbling down due to the new added pressure the air strikes are putting on.

Please post where you were discussing the U.S. air strikes on Libya.


That was the current news on this thread.

It was mentioned on page 7, and several people commented on their opinions of the action taken. Honestly I don't care where it's discussed lol.

...I don't understand how you're not seeing the discussion, Iron Horse.

Regardless, it's probably better to have a new thread on the topic.

Are you, for some reason, incapable of seeing this posts and those thereafter?

No, they are both the same person. Once you become POTUS you leave your brain at the door and 'the Machine' takes over. Blame the Machines!
