    There are reports that between 20000 and 35000 shoulder fired surface to air rockets are missing. Many have been reported to have already appeared on the black markets.

    Yes we spent very little money and lost no lives. "BUT" those weapons have yet had a chance to get into the wrong hands (we hope)

    Soldiers of our armed forces are trained to face and secure such dangers. As it stands be you for this mission or not we had NO PLAN to deal with the possible end results. I hate to see any American life lost but at the rate we are going it may well end up being possibly thousands of innocent lives rather than hundreds of soldiers (who are paid and trained to face such risks)

    This leading from behind without a thought about future outcomes is far more dangerous than most of you are willing to admit.

    Thousands of rockets possibly equal how many airliners shot out of the sky?

    Some 20,000 missiles have gone missing in Libya, ABC News reported Tuesday, raising fears that they have fallen into the wrong hands in an unstable region.

    ABC News' Brian Ross reported that the disappearance of the weapons from unguarded warehouses was made public at a recent White House meeting.

    I'm not saying anything that isn't true. And if you think I am I challenge you to prove me wrong.

    My point is we have NO IDEA what the true cost in lives and money will be. Has everyone forgotten that we armed and empowered UBL?

    Because a great victory for America is a defeat for the Republican Party.

    BULLSHIT

    I am not the republican party. I am me. These are my concerns. Besides the GOP was split on this issue when it arose. Some were for, some were against. Personally I was indifferent but felt that if we go in we need to do it right.

    By the way Chris if you want to use a movie spy to characterize yourself you should use Mr. Bean

    There are all sorts of un accounted for Weapons now. However the Stingers are clearly the biggest problem. Just a couple dozen of those in the wrong hands could be used to carry out a very large terrorists strike in which dozens of Flights are shot down across the US, or where ever.

    As far as the cost of this one, Obama and the Dems are once again being totally dishonest.

    did we stop calculating the cost of Iraq as soon as Saddam fell? I am more than sure we will make many Financial Commitments, and Spend much more money, trying to make sure Libya does not fall into Chaos. The Amount will probably Dwarf what we spent so far.

    So you are saying the US should not be concerned about 30,000 easy to use and very effective man carried Surface to Air Missiles not accounted for?

    Man it must be nice to not worry about anything.

    1 guy can take down a 757 On Take off or Landing with one of those things easy. They are truly a real threat, and it was extremely irresponsible of us to help Create a situation where they could end up in the hands of our enemies.
