SHOULD THE COALITION GO AFTER GADHAFI PERSONALLY?

General Carter Ham. U.S.  c ommander in Libya says air attacks are likely to taper off.  He adds that he has no orders to capture, kill or oust Colonel Gadhafi.  The US is on ly over Libya to protect civilians from Gadhafi’s guns.

But wait a minute.  President Obama says Gadhafi must go.  So does Stephen Harper.  But what better way to get rid of him than to take him out.  Which is exactly what the British tried to do in one of the bombing waves.  The missile was intended to kill Gadhafi.  It destroyed a building in his fortified compound.

If Gadhafi is allowed to carry on he will be at the centre of a civil war that could go on for years.

What better way to make him go than to target him either for killing or capture.

Should the coalition go after Gadhafi personaaly?

What do you think?

    There is probably no need to go after him personally. Provided the rebels can get back on the offensive, they have every reason to make sure he is dead or sent in exile permanently.

    It is tempting to suggest that Gadhafi along with his sons should be bombed out of existence. However, it would probably not be wise. The Libyans need to handle this themselves. Which of course is just a moral subterfuge: “we’ll hold him for you, then you shoot him”. In short: no clear answer to this one.

    I agree that the Lybians need to do it themselves, but I disagree that the answer is not clear. They’ve been screaming for someone to kill the bastard for weeks, now. How much more clear can they be?

    I don’t think they should go after Ghadafi. But if they do, they should leave the Lesbians alone.

    Why not, Tony? He’s slaughtering his own citizens to keep himself in power. I say kill the sunuvabitch and be done with him.
