Re: 2200 Marines on the ground in Lybia???

Those rebels are brave people, taking on artillery and tanks with rifles and pickup trucks.

Why the misspelling? Isn't it Libya?
Let the Germans handle it. Oh, yeah, they refused to vote at the UN.

Re: 2200 Marines on the ground in Lybia???

the report of "on the ground" appears to be misleading.
The 26th MEU was involved in the F-15 rescue with a V-22 osprey. They're deployed on ships and taking part in air patrols to protect libyans around the city of Ajdabiyah. The 22nd MEU has deployed and is scheduled to relieve them.
