Posted on 01/11/2014 5:41:44 PM PST by Pan_Yan
The top U.S. military commander for Africa says the Pentagon is planning to begin training 5,000 to 8,000 Libyan soldiers by midyear to help bolster the nation's security. The U.S. is also looking into providing additional airlift assistance to South Sudan, where violence has killed more than 1,000 people and driven 180,000 from their homes in the last month.
Speaking to reporters at the Pentagon, Gen. David Rodriguez, head of U.S. Africa Command, said the U.S. is planning a 24-week training program to help the Libyans, as part of a broader international effort to shore up security in the country and region in the aftermath of the 2011 fall of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

Are we training Hamas, al Qaeda, the Taliban, Hezbollah, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, the PLO and the Somali pirates, too?
Maybe, definitely, absolutely, possibly, probably not, yes and I doubt it.
How long before the first US instructors are shot by their jihadist trainees?
We have to train their military because someone overthrew the Libyan government?
Ummmmmm......that would be us.
Can you imagine how the press would be screaming if Bush had done this?
“You overthrew the government! It’s your fault!”
The American press.....paid Democrat liars.
Why did Hillary and Obama use American taxpayer provided facilities, equipment, personnel and funds to overthrow the government of Libya?
Like Egypt and Syria, the Islamic USSA will
support the terrorists under the undocumented First Moslem.
Where are the courts martial for the American Special Forces who “lost” armored vehicles, weapons and night vision equipment in Libya? I would not be surprised if Al Qaeda is already blackmailing these dumbass Democrats with those missing anti-aircraft missiles.
“We will trade you three missiles for 100 night vision goggles.”
??? We are training who where why???
I wonder how many ambassadors Obama has ordered the State Department to provide for targets?
Because most of the ruling elite had their personal wealth stored in the form of GOLD in the Libyan National Bank. We were supporting the takeover of the Libyan Government by the Muslim Brotherhood and the bank would be at risk. Ghaddafi refused to relinquish control of the Libyan National Bank, and the rest is history.
101 ways to kill Christians.
Gold. Did you see the articles where Germany has been storing some of their gold reserves in the US and they asked for it back? The US said, “Maybe in seven years.”
Saddam wouldn’t trade oil in US Dollars, so Uncle Sugar suddenly became SURE he did 9-11, and BYE-BYE SADDAM.
Kaddafi liked gold, not the US dollar, so, PRESTO..! He went, ‘poof..!’ as well.
You invented a gold Patriot Coin..? M’kay, you’re a terrorist, and all your coins are ours. Just “cuz”.
Hey I’m SURE there’s an American inside each of these Libyans, just yearning to bust out, right?
Whaddya mean NO?
We need to bring our military out of the Middle East and let those people handle their own business.
Anybody seen Valerie Jarrett lately or did she high tail it to Myanmar from Hawaii?
It has already happen.
To do what, storm embassies?
Half the ‘justification’ the Arabs have for hating us are the bases we have in their region.
Delightful. Just what we need. More Muslim fanatics trained by the US Military.
require them to be CHRISTIANS before receiving any training .
NO training of our enemy
They want it back to see if it's real, or if it's that gold-plated tungsten crap.
Do our troops have sufficient training in suicide vests to teach these people how to use them effectively?
Libya is in North Africa. It is about as close to the Middle East as Italy.
Perhaps you meant we need to stay out of these Muslim Hell Holes?
It’s sad to say, but there is no way I’d ever serve in today’s military.
Are we training Hamas, al Qaeda, the Taliban, Hezbollah, Irans Revolutionary Guards, the PLO and the Somali pirates, too?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Yes we are. Why? Because we are training members of the Muslim Brotherhood to fight for Morsi in Egypt, against the Egyptian Military.
I guess I associate anything around the Mediterranean and east of there as the Middle East.
Yes, Muslim Hell Holes would be accurate.
Also, Satan-Worshipping Muslim Hell Holes.
Now that we have a muslim in the WH, what does that make us?
Muslims hate everyone who does not worship Satan.
With THIS administration, I expect the training will concentrate on the most effective ways to kill Americans and American troops.
Well, we’ve always been big on standardization. Start in grade school. I still say peace would break out in Asia Minor if we just gave every adult there a rifle and made sure they know how to use it.
I already assumed everyone in Asia Minor had a rifle.
Let it be the Marines. It would be so ironic.
