The picture above purports to be of pro-Qaddafi forces' vehicles being hit by NATO forces fire. Two things are important about this photo:
- It's the same one, differently framed as the 'Maley Dail' used last week and
- It shows you what a ragtag army the Libyan State Army is.
This is not a GULF WAR scenario. The Rebel forces consist of about 1500 men who drive up and down the coast road in an assortment of pick up vans and ONE TANK which they have 'liberated' from somewhere. It says a lot about the capabilities of the State Forces that they haven't been able to put them out of commission and it's probably only the NATO strikes that stops that. Who are these rebel forces anyway? We're told by the MSM, that they're infested with Al Qeada sympathisers.
Maybe we're better off with Qaddafi, a reasonably benign dictator, by the standards of the region, who's oil we can exploit. But, I suppose it's too late for that now. Anyone want to have bets, when the first coalition ground forces will be used?
