possibly in the very low hundreds on the opposition side.” Speaking of those air strikes, just how is Gaddafi’s military avoiding them in their sweeping offensive? They downsized their armored vehicles to something a little more sporty and a lot less conspicuous: Moammar Gadhafi’s forces recaptured strategic territory and moved within striking distance of another major eastern city in Libya on Thursday, nearly reversing the gains rebels made since international airstrikes began. The rebels, meanwhile, pleaded for more help, while a U.S. official said pro-Gadhafi forces were making themselves harder to target by using civilian “battle wagons” with makeshift armaments instead of tanks. They shifted their transports to pickup trucks and other passenger vehicles, betting that NATO won’t fire on civilian vehicles on the road. That may or may not be a good bet long-term, but in the short run it appears to have been effective. The siege of Misrata turned critical today as well: Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi shelled the rebel-held city of Misrata on Thursday and dozens of civilians have been killed in the past few days when their homes were hit, a rebel spokesman said. Misrata, the last big rebel strong-hold in western Libya, has been encircled by pro-Gaddafi forces for weeks and repeated Western air strikes aimed at protecting civilians there have not so far succeeded in halting the attacks. “Massacres are taking place in Misrata,” the rebel spokesman, called Sami, told Reuters by telephone. “Artillery bombardment resumed this morning and is still going on. The (pro-Gaddafi) brigades could not enter the town but they are surrounding it,” he said. The West’s attempt to push Gaddafi from power rests on a force that can’t possibly accomplish it on their own. NATO and the US will have to reconsider the parameters of their mission if they hope to avoid the embarrassment of a rout of the rebels, with an ascendant Gaddafi and his family atop the dictatorship once again.
QWAK,canucanoe,NO you STILL don't understand about MONEY and CURENCY or that because the US DOLLAR has been the worlds RESERVE CURENCY the FED (privetly owned BANKS) have been able to SCAM and RIP OFF the whole world and yet remaine in the back ground and NOT be blamed and held accountable for its ACTIONS!
The FED is NOT the US GOVERNMENT but the US GOVERNMENT must and DOES defend thease UNKNOWN BANKERS who HIDE in the SHADOWS pulling strings and causing WARS to happen! :(
The IRS is just a COLECTION AGENCY for the FED and all our TAX dollars (which they create out of thin air) go to the FED to pay intrist on the DEBT!
They ROB every one EVERY WARE systimaticly, backed up by US MILITARY threat to "PAY and OBEY" or suffer the CONCIQUENCES! :(
There system of GREED and DEBT SLAVERY has percipitated ALL of the mysery and upheaval both here in the USA and around the WORLD but is distorted in your MIND and 99% of other people -- because of the ARTIFICIAL disconect from the ACTUAL CAUSE of the problem! :( People generaly do NOT understand MONEY and what it represents (the WORK and EFFORTS of another person!)
The FED owns and runs the mass media and the GOVERNMENTS (FEDERAL and STATE) at all levels -- but hides in the SHADOWS with out ANY ACCOUNTABILITY to the PEOPLE of the USA or the WORLD -- for the actions they take which PERCIPITATES all the problems the PEOPLE must deal with -- that are ECONOMICLY based!:(
They (the FED) are the MASTERS and virtualy ALL the people EVERY WARE who use FIAT CURENCY are DEBT SLAVES and like your self -- do NOT realise that GREATER TRUTH/REALITY! :( GOLD is MONEY -- FIAT is NOT!
By condestinely minipulating the price of GOLD and SILVER that GREATER TRUTH/REALITY has been BLURED and hidden so that other wise inteligent people like your self -- see GOLD and SILVER as "ONLY COMODITIES" and NOT what they have always been -- REAL actual MONEY!
Obama is just there latiest PUPET -- a MONKEY on a STRING -- born in AFRICA and NOT actualy -- LEGALY -- the PRESIDENT -- the ULTIMIT proof and in your face demonstration that THEY (the FED) own and run/manage virtualy every thing, YET the ignorent people are CLUELESS that they are DEBT SLAVES being MINIPULATED and forced in to situations that the FED percipitated!
When all boiled down it REALY is the DIFERENCE between REAL MONEY and what it REPRESENTS and the intentional IGNORENCE projected by the BANKERS -- that the FIAT CURENCY they ISSUE -- is NOT -- real MONEY -- but rater DEBT which IS -- the modern form of SLAVERY on a GLOBAL SCALE! :(
