    A Russian newspaper is quoting the Kremlin’s special envoy to Libya as saying Muammar Gaddafi has threatened to blow up Tripoli if it falls into rebel hands.

    Mikhail Margelov is quoted in today’s edition of the Izvestia newspaper as saying Gaddari’s Prime Minister Al-Baghdadi al-Mahmudi recently told him, “If the rebels seize the city, we will deluge it with missiles and blow it up.”

    Margelov also is cited as saying: “I presume that the Gaddafi regime has a suicidal plan of this kind.”

    The war in Libya appears to have hit a stalemate, despite a protracted NATO bombing campaign against Gaddafi-loyal forces under a U.N. mandate on protecting civilians. Margelov has been a mediator in the standoff.

    Russia abstained in the U.N. vote on military intervention and has voiced concern about civilian casualties.

    Some media reports say Gadaffi has surface to surface missiles.

    My question: Why did Obama and allies fire some 120 massive Tomahawk Cruise Missiles into Libya if they were unable to destroy "Gadaffi missiles"?

    Past 4 months what are Obama and his allied countries leaders doing with Libya, if allies were not able to detect missiles with Gadaffi.

    If Obama and his clowns cannot control Libya then what will happen if there is a confrontation/fight with China or Russia? Everybody threatens USA since Obama became president.

    This is what happens when a liberal leads a war effort. They wanna appear to be tough, but not acutally fight the war. The idea of "All In" is foreign to a liberal. Bush, for what its worth, was "All In" for Iraq/Afghanistan. Regardless of how one thinks about whether we should or shouldn't have gone in, no one can deny that Bush put 100% of our military's ability to the initial invasion.

    Obama, however, believes how most liberals do. Don't REALLY go to war. Just kinda lob some bombs, dont call it a "war", but do just enough to say you did something, without having to defend doing it.

    Honestly speaking USA army and its allies are exhausted and tired of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq for past 10 years. Otherwise USA army is excellent and one of the best in the world.

    World War 2 was fought for 7 years only.
