WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Pentagon is moving military ships and planes closer to Libya, a Pentagon official said on Monday, as the Obama administration stepped up calls for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to step down.
"We are moving ships closer to Libya in case they are needed," said Colonel [COLOR=#366388 ! important][COLOR=#366388 ! important]David [COLOR=#366388 ! important]Lapan[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], a Pentagon spokesman. He said planes were also being repositioned closer to Libya, where Gaddafi remains defiant in the face of intensifying pressure from the West and from his own people to end his decades-long rule.
The Obama administration has said military action is one option it is looking at, although many analysts say the [COLOR=#366388 ! important][COLOR=#366388 ! important]United [COLOR=#366388 ! important]States[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] is highly unlikely to launch a ground invasion or air strikes because of the volatile situation on the ground.
It was not immediately clear what ships the U.S. Navy has in the Mediterranean but it does have two aircraft carriers stationed further to the east.
The U.S. Sixth Fleet has its headquarters near Naples, Italy, across the Mediterranean from Libya."

Sweet! Another potential war we don't need.
With national debt equal to the total size of the economy, we may not be able to borrow the $ to pull this off.
We'll just refinance the Washington Monument and throw in Cleveland as collateral.
Don't want to seem too eager to give away the blight of the country.
We'll probably have to give it to them as part of an interest payment at some point.
Course he'll invaid a muslim country, do you not get whats happening?? Its another OIL rich country for their interests, the whole world is corrupt, Especially the American gouvernment, all these fake terrorist attacks just an excuse to go to war so they can yet again control the oil flow??? Come on 9/11 was a big fucking hoax, they wanted to invaid Afghanistan, to do so they needed an excuse. Have you seen LOOSE CHANGE FINAL CUT, get it on youtube. It fucking tears apart the fake terrorist attacks. Im English, most of you guys are American, Im all for fucking destroying any Terrorist groups Al-Qaeda etc... but its not the normal Americans or British im having a go at... its the fucking greedy bent corrupt to fuck gouvernment, sending vunreable young lads and girls to go to war just so they can bank the oil profit, fucking ass holes the lot of them. Fuck Libya, let them get on with it themselves, concentrate on our own problems. Do they not realise even if we won Libya in a pointless war lives would still be lost....... ???? A couple of lives to him is just a piss in the ocean if he gets a few billion $ a year profit
No we don't. It's all a matter of immediate gratification, consequences be damned. It also helps make the decision to go to war easier when you and your family don't have to worry about going.
too many resources to be commandeered by fundamentalist types. so we have to keep stability by flexing a little. big deal.

The only way Obama/UN/NATO is getting a no-fly zone is to take out Libya's anti-aircraft defense system which isn't exactly archaic. That's going to require air strikes and troops on the ground. Do you think Obama and the left want to be responsible for starting another war particularly in a muslim country?
IMO, I say let these fukkers fight each other until the last man stands while Obama dithers from DC.
how exactly does continuing spending monies (that we don't have) with no financial returns benefit the US?
William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.
In addition to what I said previously, it's not going to help our so-called cause in Irag or A-stan if we invade another Muslim country. The only way Obama is going into Libya is as a collective group of nations.
