    I know what it says, but you do not prepare combat troops to sit on board a ship you prepare them to fight on the ground.



    Lejeune Marines prepare to deploy off Libyan coast.

    Libya's rebels will need training, not just guns
    WASHINGTON, March 31, 2011 (AFP) - If the West decides to arm Libya's disorganized rebel forces, they will have to deploy trainers on the ground and not merely deliver crates of weapons, former US officers and officials said.

    With opposition forces in a panicky retreat in the face of tank and artillery fire from Moamer Kadhafi's troops, the United States and its allies are weighing arming the rebels to back up an air campaign already under way

    You can bet your ass Special Forces, SAS and the French equivilant are on the ground and have been for quite a while. CiA as well.

    The Prez says we will have no boots on the ground as does the SOD. I sure hope they aren't blowing smoke up our ass. WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER WAR. Jeeze.
