  1. I don’t like it.The terrain doesn’t offer itself to the same tactics acoss the board. This is some frendly fire bullshyytttt…….

    17:53 Reuters NATO helicopters attacked military convoys trying to resupply Gaddafi forces fighting over Brega. “It seems the helicopters were gathering reconnaissance in the past two days but … this morning they hit Gaddafi convoys coming from the west and south,” a revolutionary spokesman said by telephone from Benghazi.
    13:29 Washington Post In a letter to the editor, Mike Huff endorses a proposal by senator Johnny Isakson to use a portion of the frozen Libyan assets to compensate victims of the Lockerbie bombing, since it is argued the $1.5bn given by Gaddafi does not fully meet what the State Department had recommended as a compensation for the victims.
    Everytime that ground gains are made, some idiot comes up with a plan for theft that works as propaganda to further reentrench populus wavering in their support of the regime!!!

    Mr Huff why don’t you consider the USG paying the victims of this flight some more money ?

    Iran Air Flight 655 (IR655) was a civilian jet airliner shot down by U.S. missiles on 3 July 1988, over the Strait of Hormuz, toward the end of the Iran–Iraq War. The aircraft, an Airbus A300B2-203 operated by Iran Air, was flying from Bandar Abbas, Iran, to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, when it was destroyed by the U.S. Navy’s guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes, killing all 290 passengers and crew aboard, including 66 children,[1] ranking it ninth among the deadliest disasters in aviation history. It was the highest death toll of any aviation incident in the Indian Ocean and the highest death toll of any incident involving an Airbus A300 anywhere in the world. Vincennes was traversing the Strait of Hormuz, inside Iranian territorial waters, and at the time of the attack IR655 was within Iranian airspace.[2]

    Regarding the training the young fighters are getting I say is the least they can get to keep them alive . I think is good work.

  3. I’m about tired of them speaking of the initial people who took to the roads in a negative light. They feel they must do this to justify the fact that these people made enormous gains where they can’t figure out where to start. It took enormous courage to do what they did, and the title of Freedom Fighter should be reserved historically for the initial group, and the second wave that set out to find and defend their fathers and friends. Hold it. It aint my country, I forgot myself for a moment…….I guess I was inspired……….
