Libya

Unread postby danwismar » Wed Feb 23, 2011 3:04 pm

Just thought it was about time to start a thread on Libya....seeing as how the one with Egypt and Cleveland in the title has devolved into being about anything but those two things...and because Libya just seems to be on the front burner today.

How do people feel about establishing no-fly zones over the country? It's something Libyan officials (diplomats?)have specifically asked for. How long should we (the international community?...whatever that is) let the nutcase dictator massacre his own people....sow chaos in the oil sector...or turn his navy on his port cities?

Will it be left to us to enforce it? Is that a bad thing? Damned if I know.

Ex-CIA guy Bob Baer, who seems to me a smart and well-informed dude, says he thinks it will get worse before it gets better....in Time mag...

Hey no need for Obama to say anything, when officials within the Libyan government denounce their own leader...

http://www.politico.com/blogs/lauraroze ... ocide.html

"The world is watching the situation in Libya with alarm," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement Monday. "We join the international community in strongly condemning the violence in Libya. ... Now is the time to stop this unacceptable bloodshed. We are working urgently with friends and partners around the world to convey this message to the Libyan government."

I said the same thing in the Egypt/Cleveland thread. Take up a firearm and stake a claim for your own rights and freedoms.

All i'm saying is if you arm a population and it devolves into factional civil war or some Islamatard regime, you really haven't helped the cause of Democracy..... Or Oil Production

Plus the idea of dropping weapons on any country in the ME is laughable. They have that covered. No shortage of Soviet era arms.

Don't be such a stuffed shirt Dan. If you want a serious dialogue skim through 200+ posts of the other thread. I am sure our opinions on Egypt/Iran/Tunsia/Whatever else is in there will suffice. No need to write another bible on a mostly parellel situation.

It's just that I'm tired of the 3rd world. Why does the answer always have to come from outside? Why does the answer for their dictators and starvation have to come from the U.N.?

Are you Libian? Are you patriotic? Do you care for your family? Community? Self? Then do something positive about it. Don't wait for the blue helmets to overthrow Khadafi. Americans wouldn't wait.

Do it yourself, and you pick your future. The rest of the world should butt out (except those airdrops :clap: ).

Like, you missed my point dude. I never advocated the US or UN arming those people. All I am suggesting is that if citizens of certain countries are pissed off at The Man, take some damn action and do it yourself. No more help, no more big brother. And guess what, if those same seekers of democracy who overthrow a government rise up only to be a bigger threat than their predecessors, someone mentioned the concept of carpet bombing in another thread.

At some point, this shit comes to a head and a country/region will either fall in line or war breaks out. Is what is. Why not let those folks kill each other off (if that's what they wish) and have the chips fall where they may? I am seriously at the cusp of not really giving a fuck about the world except for the continental United States. We have enough problems internally and with the growing instability of northern Mexico, the baddies south of the border are going to do something reprehensible to the point the US has to get involved. Maybe not now, maybe not soon, but eventually. Other than 9/11, and WTC, the US is fortunate not to have as many domestic attacks due to us being isolated topographically. Who knows, maybe I am just a crazy, tunnel visioned, xenophobe, but I'd like to think people can pull themselves out of the stone age without the help of the good old U S of A.

This is all tongue-in-cheek, right? I mean comparing a poorly educated dirt poor population with no resources to the US with respect to rambo-ing their way toward democracy? Egypt was the perfect storm in terms of a revolt, and EOD, the military is still in charge. For all we know the situation might get worse. Everywhere else, the uprisings will be violenty crushed without some type of suport/intervention from either the US, UN, NATO....

Which is unlikely to happen. So as much as the US government likes to arrogantly sit back and yell "go for it" all that does is get more people killed. Worst case scenario - the first in with support is militant Islam, while the US cheers from the sidelines. Those countries just can't do it on their own, if the regime is not threatend from the outside or at least pressured to change.

I probably need to clarify. Self-determination is fine. So after a country determines (for themselves) a new path along which to walk, they do what, exactly? Ask the current government to quitely leave?

I was talking from a pragmatic POV. Extremely difficult to overthrow a govenment, any government, unless you have either your own militia, military, or someone else's, on your side.

Maybe I am missing a couple of regime changes that didn't include the military as part of the process. Bloodless or not, the army is usually part of the package. It certainly was in Egypt. That was my point. It has nothing to do with a people's right for self determination - it has everything to do with the mechanism to enforce that right.

I am with Mattavan, it is one thing to over throw the Brits with muskets and a calvary. Completely different when Gaddafi is sending fighter jets to shoot on crowds. Said the same thing about Iraq and Iran. The people of Egypt only were successful in overthrowing Mubarak because he is only a partial dick head. Saddam or Amedijhardonjihad would have shot first and listened after.

I am with you on that last part in terms of a people needing a mechanism to enforce change. The point I was originally trying to make is hard to put into words. I guess what I mean is if the US and our allies see a significant chunk of the ME as a threat and they want to install a democracy, I just cannot believe it won't happen without an enormous amount of bloodshed. Not to say our proud men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq/Afghanistan don't count, but to make such a sweeping change like Westernizing an entire assbackward region of the world seems impossible without the possibility of WW3. That or the indigenous folks of those countries find a way to do it themselves.

It's a cluster fuck OJ. And since when did US government make something better? Thought you were a free market guy? The free market of world real politic is in full swing. Best to wait it out and let money and the best military gear talk when it is all said and done. This is way the fuck out of our control.

Oh God yes Jim. Agree 100% with your comments. I am not advocating the US send troops, but merely pointing out the fallacy of screaming "C'mon you pussies, man up and overthrow the government" as if the majority of the population of Libya played 8th grade football.


8th grade football?

Holy shit. I played that.

Who's with me? Let's GOOOooooooooooo!!!


I'm with you on the following conditions.

1) I drive.

2) How long will it take to get there?

D) There better be beer.

9) I get to punch any foreinger at anytime for any reason. Even if i'm the foreinger in their country, i'm still right.

X) Everyone has mustaches.


Fuck. The babysitter backed out and the wife has to work that weekend we were gonna do this thing of ours.

Sorry boys.

You guys think we could map this out on CoD and then do it when the weather's a bit better?

And I'm definitely down for the mustaches and the Chinese symbol tattoos.

You'll still be wearing pants, right? I don't actually play CoD so I don't know what you kids consider full renegade.

Can we bring FMB?

Yes, I'll wear pants...

The game isn't CoD. I'm too old to play that with any skill. Mass Effect.

Kiddin' me? Whenever I can be in the company of gentlemen (more or less) who actually give a shit about mama, Jesus and Jones (George, not Turkey) I'm down with that.

You'll never starve, wonder who's got your back or be the dumbest man around the camp fire if you travel with those boys. :lmfao:

And I'm still more than willing to hang with the guys who ain't sold on the whole Jesus thing.

Had you been to my platoon reunion last October you'da considered it Divine Intervention, brother...

28 guys and only 9 Yankees. I should post some pics on my flikr site....every guy in the group photo is someone you'd make fun of if you didn't know your life may be in your hands if you did...

40 fuking yrs gone but the Brotherhood was instant and the war stories awesome to re-hash with those you actually fought with

Got 'em all

From Full Bird Col, brigade commander refusing to use his personal chopper to pick up a wounded man to my platoon sgt getting an Article 15 and a fine for expending too much artillery for 5 KIS...ignoring the fact they were swarming the chopper pad like ants and found 25 or stacked like cordwood a couple week later...

And true story...that Brigade Commander was played in a Korean War movie once by Gregory Peck....Pork Chop Hill

Maybe Obama could pick a side. He is about 2 weeks late from what I thought was the correct action. Imagine if Bush waited this long. How many reporters would be asking him to, "admit mistakes."
