Why don't we just assassinate Khadaffy?

 and why did it take 2 countries, to get Bin Laden when all it took was a handful of men ibn comparison to get him in the end? Missy Busty will not have an answer for that one.

TMundo - What's the question?

Missy Busty will be happy to provide a clear cogent intelligent answer to any of your questions. However your stoned psycho-babble does not qualify as a question.

I have a question for you. Since Obama has gone rogue in Libya - should he be impeached?

It was clearly done as a favor to the Brits

 They depend on Libyian oil not us.

We should've learned from the Italians learned in the 30s that going into Libyia is a mistake. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. This is the rebels fight to win not ours. The same goes for Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. We can't "fix" these countries. It should've been a special forces operation from the beginning. Go in and kill those who attacked us on 9/11 and get out. We aren't helping us or their people by spending billions of dollars fighting their wars.

There was a movie about the Italians in Libya

It's the 1981 movie LION OF THE DESERT, with Anthony Quinn as the Arab guerilla leader and a typecast Oliver Reed as the Italian general fighting him. (It was directed by Moustapha Akkad, who also made MOHAMMED, MESSENGER OF GOD, in which Islamic decorum prevented him from actually putting the movie's central character on camera!)

Anyway, the best moment in LION OF THE DESERT came near the end when Reed's finally captured Quinn, is about to hang him but makes one last attempt to get him to turn collaborationist.  He says "Your chains must be uncomfortable," and Quinn responds, "They are uncomfortable facts." Now that's a man!

 

My favorite part was...

 Where they lured the Italian's armored column to a field that they had previously planted dynamite and blew them up. Thought that was clever
