Team America to the rescue!

Hi, we're America, and there's no job we can't f*ck up. Need help because you're living under a brutal dictator? Don't worry, we'll invade and you won't have to worry about living any more. Team America, you request our help, and we'll be there, to bomb the shit out of your country. Having some problems with drug gangs? Don't worry, team America is here. We'll take that problem and multiply it tenfold, because we're just that awesome.

Team America, no problem too small that we can't make bigger, no job too easy that we can't utterly fail at.

We're team America, and we're in your corner(picking your pocket and fisting your wife, whilst singing 'With A Little Help From My Friends'), as long as there's something worthwhile in your corner for us to take.

Except, enforcing a no fly zone does mean bombing their anti-aircraft installations, etc. So, yes, it is a kind of invasion. Not the same as Kosovo, no. However, some people talking about this don't seem to realize what it truly means (not saying you don't, but wanted to clarify).


It does? How do you know that for certain?

If you're hearing voices that is a problem.

Which civilians? Who? Or according to whom? Any sources at all?


Well, today we sent medical supplies (America sucks) and food (America sucks). I can't find any sources, guess it's just a rumor for now.

I will keep you posted on what I "hear"

Well, today we sent medical supplies (America is so benevolent) and food ( all bow down to the grace and generosity and be thankful that America is always there to save the day). I can't find any sources, guess it's just autofellatio for now.

Some sarcasm had somehow crept into your post scotty. Luckily for you, I'm always on hand to fix shit that needs a-fixin'.

Saxi agreeing with Player?! :o Say it ain't so! :P ACK! LOL!

It seems popular to imagine No-Fly Zones as some kind of pacifist application of military force, ignoring the personnel manning ground-based SAM batteries that get hit with Anti-Radiation missiles within five minutes of the No-Fly Zone starting.

Well, today we sent medical supplies (America sucks) and food (America sucks). I can't find any sources, guess it's just a rumor for now.


I had to Bing-Dot-Com what you were referencing (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/babylon ... tinue.html). This, cautiously, seems okay but I'm skeptical that it's a beachhead to sending supplies to the eastern part of the country under the guise of helping refugees but, in fact, feeding and clothing the insurgents.

I saw that, last week, the UK and Germany both sent military-marked aircraft deep inside Libya, ostensibly to evacuate foreign nationals. This was done without any permission or authorization from the PLAF, is a horrendous violation of Libyan territorial integrity and speaks to Britain's neo-colonialist, paternalist attitude in dealing with the Arab world. Germany's operation is an even worse violation than Britain's considering their history in Libya.

Brit Invasion Force Stopped
A recce squad for a UK empire-building force brigandishly eyeballing Libyan oil resources has been arrested in rebel-held Libyan territory where they were operating without authorization. The Libyan National Council are holding the NATO invaders in their stronghold of Benghazi. MoD press officers have released the cover story that the SAS operators were simply chauffers to a diplomat who was visiting the area to say hi. On several occasions in the past the UK has attempted to sow crime without the aid - or in opposition to the wishes - of the kingpin of the NATO gang (the US) which has generally resulted in comically bumbling hijinx (e.g. Suez).

http://af.reuters.com/article/libyaNews ... 0520110306

The SAS have extensively trained Col. Qadaffi's secret service which is likely to viewed skeptically by insurgents.

LOL! It appears the vaunted SAS were captured by some guy out milking his cows ...

"We fired into the air, and said 'Hands up, don't move'. They did as we said. It was not very difficult, we just asked them to move away from their bags to the side, and they did," said a Libyan farmer who captured the SAS.

this is absolutely WRONG

here are some key dates...

on 14th of February, the revolution started with peaceful protests... Gadafi immediately started oppressing protesters...

on 15th and 16th, protesters were attacked with airplanes..

meanwhile, USA, EU, NATO, UN...etc were just discussing a dumb solution..

on 21st or 22nd of February, OIL extraction & transportation stopped. immediately the above mentioned bullshit (aka governments & organizations) panicked and took the situation seriously...

if anyone is telling us that USA fights for freedom of people, then he/she must be completely liar or ignorant..... if Libya has no oil, no one will even care...

and in Libya, no one wants the USA mess in his country.... Libyan people will keep fighting until they get rid of that insane dictator, then their country will be reborn...

please tell Uncle Sam, UN, NATO....etc Andrea Pirlo says f*ck you...

now i read that quadafy army, again not manage to take back misurata town against unarmed civilians, They use tanks, mortars, airplane,and again can not take town(who have 500000 citizens). Its so funny,when they write that quadafy bombard and attack unarmed civilian, and yet,hes army can not defeat unarmed protesters. But these kind of propaganda have effect,and people start to belive. These scenarion are many time whas very sucess, to get support for attack or invasion to other countries.

RT had an excellent report today about how the media - Al-Jazeera included - are broadcasting total lies about the unrest, including staging demonstrations for cameras.

Gadafi is no longer fighting for regaining control over cities.. he's now fighting to survive as long as possible after too many military leaders defected...

go search for the massacres he committed then talk... get a clue..... however, they still don't want any foreign asshole to stick his nose into their country business

Don't worry about it. The Libyan government will crush them pretty efficiently provided the west doesn't intervene.

The so-called insurgency is a handful of Berber street gangs run by the US-based "Libyan Youth Movement" and their 70 year-old, CIA-backed leader Ibrahim Sahad (http://www.libyanfsl.com/tabid/70/mid/4 ... fault.aspx). If the west does intervene it means the insurgency is on the verge of defeat.
