  •  then there are the towns still pro ghaddafi (0+ / 0-)

    at least one was talked about post attack, and in this situation the Bushian move would be to grab quick disinformation and blow the fuck out of the place for the domestic politics of it  pleasing whatever factions in Libya want it to be so..and including those in the Libyan gubbmint who might wish the current gubbmint to be associated with just such an overreach as to attack a school or buiilding containing civilians.

    False intel always very dangerous and a likely tactic in a situation like this.

    Romney et al is providing the very pressure that can lead to just such an overreach in a lesser president.

    Indeed, that one town I forgot the name of is so anti govt it may very well be targeted for just such an operation by the current government.

    And I am not satisfied that just because the crowd drove the militants out of their base that the crowd was acting on any truth either. The militants are in a political situation and have reacted as such in several cases if the media got any of it right..in particular, some calls to disarm were reported heeded. Folding the militants in these militias back into the fabric of the country is a big challenge just by itself without our politics interceding.
        Libya is a complicated place and I hope they can make progress, they have done pretty well so far...I appreciate your observations TDk.

    The Fog of bullshit and competing agendas...

    Good luck to PBO and a trial for Issa and Romney for treason would be my little dream here...

    This machine kills Fascists.
