    Just heard a report that a US f15 had a malfunction and crashed in Libya. Crew ejected. So now we have 2 sets of boots on the ground, and no doubt a rescue crew going in.

    Fuax Rage? I'm not raging at all. Just think it was silly of Obama to promise no boots on the ground, and act like no Americans would be at risk, when clearly they are.

    You might want to look in the mirror before you start calling me a Partisan. Where is your out rage? Or do you reserve that for Wars started by Republicans only?

    lol

    Awesome good news indeed.

    They only reason I even posted this, is because it brings to light the dangerous game Obama is playing. Trying to pass this thing off as a 0 Threat war. He basically said no Americans would be in harms way when this started, when it is pretty clear that is not the case.

    By 'no boots on the ground' was he referring specifically to American 'boots'?

    Grow up kid.

    You accused me of having Faux rage when I have no rage at all.

    In fact I support fully what Obama is doing, though I do have some questions about his end game. (are we going to remove Qaddafi or not)

    I do think it is pretty funny that Obama just did exactly what he called unconstitutional when Bush did it (attacking another country with out Congressional Approval) But that just means he is a hippocrate, I already knew that, so no rage here.

    Well yes and no.

    Personally I think it can not succeed with out boots on the ground, But I sure remember Obama saying in no un certain terms that there would be no US boots on the ground, and basically trying to sell this as a risk free war for our troops and pilots.

    now once again our credibility is on the line. IMO if this thing ends with Qaddafi still in power. It will once again make us look weak and ineffective. I genuinely hope Obama has what it takes to be in this to win it.

    And Obama has said too many conflicting things. He isn't (Nor has he ever been) consistant...

    Publicly declaring our strategy to the world and our enemy was not very brilliant.
    Bet ya a dollar we have a few boots on the ground already.
