Joint Chiefs Chairman: Situation in Libya is “generally in a stalemate”

In case you missed this amid yesterday’s debt ceiling clamor, outgoing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen admitted that the “kinetic military action” in Libya is “generally in a stalemate.”

Right now you might be wondering, how did the world’s most formidable military power wind up in a stalemate with a Third-world tinpot dictator?  I think the answer is pretty simple.  We don’t belong, militarily, in Libya, period.  President Obama knows this, which is why he is prosecuting this war illegally, without consent of Congress.  And it’s also why we’re “leading from behind” with respect to this operation.  President Obama is neither confident nor decisive enough to order the kind of true full scale military operation that could end this stalemate quickly and decisively.  But he also knows that pulling out would effectively make America the loser in this conflict, and Barack Obama would never willfully do anything to diminish his chances of re-election.

So for the time being, we appear to be stuck in an illegal quagmire in Libya.  Too bad it can’t be blamed on George W. Bush.

    For some reason my eyes read “liberal quagmire” instead of “illegal quagmire”.

      What Barack Obama and certain members of Congress do NOT want all of us to know about when dealing with the debt ceiling while $600 Billion dollars has been “stolen” from us taxpayers. No wonder he and his liberal buddies are claiming they are broke and can not pay social security and veterans benefits.  Just beautiful!

    Correct, an illegal war.   Not worth getting in deeper.   GTFO out of Iraq and Afghanistan, which are far more bloody and expensive, too. 

    That will solve the budget and deficit problem without looting Social Security.

      What do you call what they’ve been doing to SS up to now? Kinetic loan assistance?

      “without looting
      Social Security.”

      How exactly do you loot a “lockbox” full of nothing but I.O.U.’s?

        I said it was illegal, but keep things in perspective:  no U.S. casualties yet in Libya, and cost to date has been a couple billion.

        Not like Iraq, 4474 U.S. dead and $2 trillion cost.  Funny how you ignore that cost, all for Iran to take over Iraq.

          Funny how you ignore the fact that the action in Libya is illegal. Its not a “little bit” illegal because no one has died yet. The final score doesn’t matter.

          Are all liberals Whoopie Goldberg? Its not “war’ war, just like its not “rape” rape?

    Didn’t our wonderful Commander-in-Chief say something to the effect that this ‘kinetic military action’ would take only days?

    • Anonymous

      Yes, on March 18th Obama said US involvement would be days, not months.

      But as with everything Obama says, it’s all words, words without meaning….pure blather.

      • Guess we exceeded the time limit on that promise.

        After all, all of 0bama’s promises come with an expiration date (though the date is not usually specified in advance).

    “generally in a stalemate”mnn the Libya crisis sounds exactly like the debt ceiling crisis in Congress, only without the latter´s hostilities..

      Huh?

       Yeah, well I suppose you could call Kdaffy a peaceful protester.. Once all those nasty radical gun hugging Koran thumping citizens are disposed of properly.

    “the “kinetic military action” in Libya is “generally in a stalemate.” in no small part because the ‘CiC’ doesn’t have the first clue about leadership. He got in without a plan or approval somewhere that the US had absolutely no business being and has since tried to sweep it under the rug when it didn’t go as planned.

        Yeah, almost…

    What we have in the Libyan Kinetic Military Action is an example of the Democrat Party and The World Community Rules of Warfare.

    Winning a war is against the rules for the US.

    This started after WWII, with the Truman led refusal to win in Korea followed by the Kennedy/Johnson led refusal to win in Viet Nam.

    Bush has been vilified for breaking the rules by leading a win in Iraq, and now the Democrats and The World Community must reassert, “The Rules.”

    Afraid to Win is Barry’s military plan of action. His Kerry like smarter approach to war and pert near everything is to never declare war, never submit a budget, never create a job and never follow through on any promises. 

    That way,  the paper trail can’t come back to bite him. Affirmative learned him good..

  • The left has been whining about wars of choice for years but the sec. of def. said Libya posed no threat to the USA and it was a humanitarian effort or kinetic military action, one of the most tortured euphemisms i have ever heard. I can not believe that our military advised him to take this action. Only our state dept. is stupid enough to advocate for a bunch of people that hate us. I would rather we tortured a few terrorists than the english language. Reagan accomplished more with one bombing raid than dumbo has with weeks of attacks.
