(CNN) — The key Libyan city of Ajdabiya, the last major point between pro-government forces and the opposition stronghold of Benghazi, was slipping from the opposition’s hands Tuesday, witnesses reported.
Forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi fired artillery into Ajdabiya, and there were eyewitness reports of at least two airstrikes on the city. If Ajdabiya is retaken by pro-Gadhafi forces, it would give access to roads leading to the heart of the opposition’s base.
Opposition fighters in Ajdabiya returned fire with anti-aircraft weapons and rocket-propelled grenades, but eventually had to pull back their defense positions. Gadhafi’s forces approached the city from the south and the west, witnesses said.
Once again the Obama administration is proving to be utterly incapable of making any kind of strategic decision beyond convening “talks”. While rebels struggle to overthrow the terrorist dictator of Libya, Mo Mo Gadhafi, our anointed sultan of Washington is making college basketball picks. No really.
Last month after taking a few weeks to figure out what he was going to do about Egypt, Obama decided it was in our national interest to throw Hosni Mubarak, a staunch American ally for thirty plus years under his always on time bus. This month Obama is sitting back and allowing a terrorist dictator use tanks, airstrikes and artillery on his own people. It would take about ten Navy Seals and three CIA operators to completely kick this guys ass once and for all. Where’s Charlie Wilson when we need him?
America- a shell of a once great nation. If you are in a poor oppressed country led by a dictator, tough sh*t.
