    Two or three weeks ago Libya was all over the news.

    And president Gaddafi was another Hitler.

    Now it's barely a blip on the news media.

    What gives?? :confused:

    1. NATO military operations are being revealed as a completely disorganized fuck up.
    2. Al Qaida (Supported by the US in Libya) is both against Kaddafy AND NATO! It's not good to report that you know.

    But we had a plan to bomb Gaddafi/Libya into democracy?

    Isn't that our standard M.O.?

    Maybe we won and just forgot to inform the media?? :cool:

    unreal.

    With U.S. in support role, NATO's Libya mission 'going in circles'
    Kadafi's forces have been able to intensify their counteroffensive while NATO members don't appear willing to escalate their intervention.


    snip-

    We rushed into this without a plan," said David Barno, a retired Army general who once commanded U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan. "Now we're out in the middle, going in circles."

    The failure of the international air campaign to force Kadafi's ouster, or even to stop his military from shelling civilians and recapturing rebel-held towns, poses a growing quandary for President Obama and other NATO leaders: What now?

    Privately, U.S. officials concede that some of their assumptions before they intervened in the Libyan conflict may have been faulty. Among them was the notion that air power alone would degrade Kadafi's military to the point where he would be forced to halt his attacks, and that the U.S. could leave the airstrikes primarily to warplanes from Britain, France and other European countries.

    way more embarrassing idiocy here-
