SHOULD OBAMA ARM THE REBELS?

March 31, 2011

President Obama has now sent secret CIA operatives into Libya to gather intelligence and make contact with the rebels.  Meanwhile, the rebels are in full flight before Gadhafi’s heavily armed forces.  The rebels are begging for arms to try to slow Gadhafi’s murderous advance.

The there is speculation that within the Obama administration there is a fierce fight going on as to whether to try to arm the rebels or not.

Both Britain and France have raised he possibility of arming the rebels, although no decision has yet  been taken.  “I’m not ruling it in, I’m not ruling it out”  Obama told NBC News.

Should Obama arm the rebels?

If he does not, the rebellion will be crushed and Gadhafi will stay in power.

If he does, the United States and the coalition will be sucked into a raging civil war that could go on for months.

SHOULD THE COALITION GO AFTER GADHAFI PERSONALLY?

March 22, 2011

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?
