ONSLOW COUNTY -- We've seen Camp Lejuene Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan and now they are joining the fight against Libya.The only civilians getting killed are from ZOG air strikes. The Libyan Government is putting down a rebellion. Anyone remember Kosovo?
About 2,200 Marines from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit will take part in support operations based aboard USS Kearsarge at sea. Those support operations have thus far included air strikes and one rescue operation. The overall mission is to help end the violence directed at the Libyan people.
"Protecting the innocent and conducting combined operations are what we are designed to do, our forces are doing both as part of the U.S commitment to protect Libyan citizens."

What did Obama and the lickspittle Generals constantly tell us?
"There are no American boots on the ground from this coalition," Gen Carter Ham, Commander of US Africa Command, told Pentagon reporters during a briefing on the operations in Libya.Anyone who considers the US Government illegitimate, raise your RPG.
I don't know how to be more clear than that: No military boots on the ground," Ham said in response to a question.
He reminded reporters that the US President, Barack Obama, has said that there would be no US troops on the ground in Libya.
