arm the rebels, then no fly zone

Reader comment on item: Back to the Shores of Tripoli?
in response to reader comment: A poor case for the Marines

Submitted by Dan Tobin (United States), Mar 10, 2011 at 20:00

Arming the rebels fighting War Criminal Gaddaffi (Abu Minyar) and his entirely criminal regime and family should be the first thing we do. A No fly zone would work well if Sec. Gates gets over his case of cold feet. It was my letter years ago that got Libya to give up their nuclear weapons, and freedom is on the march, so let's remember stateswoman Maggie Thatcher's words, and "Not go wobbly".

If Libya becomes another Somalia, then we have all kinds of ways of preventing the turmoil from reaching Europe and America. Somalia was never a threat to the United States, and will not be, but War Criminal Gaddaffi requested my abduction in 1998 since I issued him and his appointed Pan Am Flight#103 bombers and their familys deathwishes since my brother Mark L.C. Tobin was among the 270 innocents massacred by Gaddaffi Megrahi and Fimah, and perhaps other co-conspiritors, and it is entirley possible that becuause the special ops against Gaddaffi I called for repeatedly was never carried out, September 11 attacks may never have taken place. My meetings with former Sens. D'Amato and ,Lautenberg, Nat. Sec. Adviser Sandy Berger, Sec. State Albright, AG Reno,and US Amb. Bill Richardson over the years did not punish Gaddaffi decisively, or his appointed plane bombers, and the Islamist world was emboldened when they learned that The US Federal Gov. would not punish the foreign criminals, and I regret that I do not have the money and man power that H. Ross Perot had to carry out the special ops in Iran to save employees of his data processing co. which was written about in Ken Follett's "On Eagle's Wings" which was recommended by my Marianist Brothers at Chaminade Genovese and Syriac in Mineola when I was a scholar/gentleman 1983-1987.
