Cruise missiles away!

Libya: U.S. Tomahawk Cruise Missiles Hit Targets in Libya - ABC News

U.S. Tomahawk Cruise Missiles Hit Targets in Libya

Pentagon: Over 110 Missiles Fired at 20 Targets Inside Libya


Um......I take it they need to get rid of his air defense system in order to implement a NFZ? Yes? I hope? Or is this mission creep?

Apparently oil is worth more than the lives lost in Japan.

Sad

Wrong. Libya doesn even supply oil to the US. They supply oil to Europe and the UK. And we thought we won the war against the British. They've been pulling our strings for the last 100 years. I don't consider the British any more of our ally than they were in 1776. A little island of 65 million people wreaking havoc and colonizing half the planet. It's time Europe does their own gddamn fighting for once.

I can't wait for the Russians response on this. Although they are a paper tiger as well. Their ******* lost their balls decades ago.

Yea .. and so much for that "Just Refueling" line of B.S. they tried to pass off on us ..

You know I hate to say it but it's about damn time Russia and China punch us in our teeth for once. Maybe then we'll take our toys, go home, and take care of our own country and the mess that is Mexico to our southern border.

Incase you haven't noticed, gas in the US has went up $.41 per gallon since the unrest began in Libya began. So yes, we don't get our oil there but it sure as hell wreaks havoc on the price we pay at the pump.
