The intelligence sources are finding an easy way out to “guess” Al Qaeda and Hezbollah among rebels. We need to demand the NATO commander to produce verifiable information to be certain that Al Qaeda and Hezbollah are with the rebels.
President Reagan’s wisdom echoes in my ears, “Trust but verify,” we need to quit guessing and blunder as we did with WMD and
If we cannot aim Gaddafi, we should not fire.
Caution is preferable to blind shooting; we are not there to shoot, but there to protect the civilians from the massacre.
Throwing Gaddafi is the responsibility of the Libyans and not ours, we are there to prevent a massacre and NOT fight for them.
The usage of the phrase Allahu Akbar, which is God is great is common among Muslims, the Al-Qaida Gang uses it and it is used when the Green bay Packers won the super bowl. When your friends little girl kicks the goal in soccer, Allahu Akbar is said out loud.
Muslims routinely use the words like Allahu Akbar to appreciate things and not necessarily as a battle cry. They seek refuge in a higher power. In the Libyan context, it simply means God is great, Gaddaffi is not.
We have an opportunity to regain our dignity we lost in
and Iraq by targeting the civilians; we have to be an example to the world in civility. Afghanistan
