NATO Strikes Save Ajdabiyah

Ever since Muammar Gaddafi's forces were able to repel Rebel advances in his home town, Sirt, the conflict has gone from bad to worse for the NATO backed insurgents, despite recent efforts to launch more air strikes on Gaddafi forces, which inclucdes Libyan tanks and military installations.

However, there is some excellent news from Ajdabiyah - where the Rebels have been under fierce siege in one of their last strongholds West of Benghazi - and it involves another barrage of air strikes saving the Rebel mission at their weakest moment.

NATO, which has recently come under scrutiny for not strongly supporting the anti-Gaddafi forces, launched numerous strikes and destroyed 11 Libyan tanks on the verge of attacking yesterday. The attacks most likely saved the Rebels in Ajdabiyah, because it allowed them to capture Gaddafi's men within the city and regain control of the crucial intersections.

Our allies in Libya cannot defeat Gaddafi unless we're in it to defeat him as well. We must stop pussyfooting around, and authorize absolute war to remove the despot from power before he succeeds in destroying the honorable opposition.

What say you?
