SHOULD GADHAFI BE ASSASSINATED?

Remember when President Obama said Gadhafi had to go.

Well, he hasn’t gone yet.  Apparently he doesn’t plan to go anywhere.  So where does that leave Obama and the coalition.  Especially when you consider the Libyan dictator is decimating his opposition who are fighting among themselves.

Suppose Gadhafi hangs in there.  This would be a dreadful intolerable defeat for Obama and the United States.

So what are the options.?

Here’s one.  We know there are American secret service men on the ground in Libya.  What do you bet these intelligence experts don’t know exactly where Gadhafi is.  One smart bomb dropped on his lair and Gadhafi is gone for good.

Isn’t that the cleanest and quickest way to end Gadhafi and the civil war in Libya which could carry on for months.

Should Kadhafi be assassinated?

What do you think?

    Wow.

    I’m shocked that Neil would even ask such a question. It makes me speculate as to the influence his supporting of the community organizer has been having on both his psyche and his ethics.

    Assassinating a country’s leader because it is the “cleanest and quickest” way to solve a problem? Whatever are you thinking, Neil?

    What is this, M&M’s? No chocolately mess? Melts in your mouth not in your hands?

    The reason assassinating country’s leaders is not and has never been the solution to political or military conflicts is that it sets a dangerous precedent that puts allworld leaders at risk. Tit for tat. You killa mah faddah I killah you faddah. Real Hatfield and Mccoy’s kinda stuff.

    But this is the kind of thinking we have come to expect from those who support someone who took the office of President of the United States with zero executive experience.

    Just to be clear, Tony. Not all supporters of Obama advocate taking out Gadhafi. You make a good point above about it setting a dangerous precedent, not to mention it being wrong, wrong, wrong.

    I think the war-monger label is a bit much, though. I find Obama is not one for snap decisions and sees in the long term. I am concerned about any covert involvement in Libya, but I will save any condemnation for when the truth comes out. That can take time.

    Obama commits the U.S. to a military operation in which innocents are killed — and under the guise of “humanitarian” purposes — and you want to “save any condemnation for when the truth comes out”?

    Well, try this one on for size: the U.S. Arabic-speaking military fellow who befriended Saddam Hussein while he was in jail during his trial said that Saddam purposely led the U.S. and the world to believe he had weapons of mass destruction because he was afraid of Iran.

    I see as much of a war-monger in Barack Obama as I saw in Bush. But, go ahead, you and Neil can delude yourselves that he is somehow different…

    Pardon me, but didn’t President John Kennedy sign off on the killing of a leader in Vietnam?

    It would come under the banner of “Mercy Killing”, in my book.

    I rest my case.

    Yes, Gaddhaffi should be executed, but no, we in the rest of the wrold should not be the ones to do it. He’s got enough enemies in his own country that will volunteer for the job, if only they could get to him.

    I vote we help them.

    Killing Gaddhafi will not sort things<infact it would bring more problems.Libyans should resort to dialogue.Its surprising that we have people in a country fighting and instead of sorting oout the problems we have we start to look at America and say hey American you want our oil.Assuming we proffessionally sort things within can the American find a way in.Lets be clever
