General: U.S. may consider troops in Libya

Secretary Gates smugly announced that this would "not happen under his watch". What a bunch of bull! A local talk show had a father on the other day. His son is finishing up a rotation in Afhghanistan and is going for training police actions followed by a deployment to Libya. CBS News reports supports the father's claim: "WASHINGTON - The United States may consider sending troops into Libya with a possible international ground force that could aid the rebels, according to the general who led the military mission until NATO took over."

Hi Bob,

It looks like the use of airpower alone in Libya, at least under NATO, has resulted in a stalemate. Perhaps announcing that there will be no US Boots on Ground, while politically important to the left, gave the wrong message to the Bad Guys.
