So congratulations, L Grizzle! You've finally gotten yourself on here by being such a vicious, mindless grave-robber that I couldn't ignore you any more!
If we could have kept American air power in the fight it would have been over quicker. Sixty-thousand Libyans have been wounded, 3,000 maimed, 25,000 killed. Let’s get in on the ground. There is a lot of money to be made in the future in Libya. Lot of oil to be produced. Let’s get on the ground and help the Libyan people establish a democracy and a functioning economy based on free market principles.Note the swivel here. Literally immediately noting how many thousands of Libyans have been killed or injured in their struggle against a repressive regime, Lindsey recommends the US sends in people to start making money.
I'd also like to add my utter amazement at the idea that an increased military presence by the Americans would have led to fewer civilian casualties.
I'll grant Gadaffi might have fallen faster with an increased US role. That would also be true had the States simply nuked Tripoli. There is no doubt in my mind that whether or not Graham would have signed up for that approach would depend entirely on whether a nuclear explosion would have contaminated the surrounding crude.
