    What happen to obamas words about not sending any troops into Libya?

    CBS/AP) WASHINGTON - The United States may consider sending troops into Libya with a possible international ground force that could aid the rebels, according to the general who led the military mission until NATO took over.


    Army Gen. Carter Ham also told lawmakers Thursday that added American participation would not be ideal, and ground troops could erode the international coalition and make it more difficult to get Arab support for operations in Libya.

    I was just In Iraq in Wed., not going to happen. trust me.


    SAS forces will be used with US assistance. what that assistance is, is far above our collective pay grade.

    The mods are cool but 2/3 of the poster-admins are either permanently drunk or not trustworthy.

    Im not really surprised that it's an option. I dont think it's a good option. But then again I don't think we need to be involved in the Libyan civil war at all.

    agreed Avatar, I think we have to wait a few more weeks to see if the French forces can do what is expected. If we have to (ugh) bail them out, then we have a new mess.

    Libya is a BP glory hole, let the UK and CO worry about it.
