Army General Carter Ham told Congress today that while sending a globalist ground invasion force including American troops into Libya may not be “ideal,” it is probably the only way to make sure the CIA organized rebels and al-Qaeda defeat Gaddafi and his troops.

The use of an international ground force is a possible plan to bolster rebels fighting forces loyal to the Libyan leader, Ham said at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, the AP and CBS report today.


Dr. Paul Craig Roberts talks with James Corbett about Libya.

“I suspect there might be some consideration of that,” the general responded when asked directly about ground troops. “My personal view at this point would be that that’s probably not the ideal circumstance, again for the regional reaction that having American boots on the ground would entail.”

Ham admitted that the poorly trained rebels are incapable of pulling off a decisive victory in the north African country. The general characterized the current situation as a stalemate. In fact, Gaddafi has pushed the rebels back and dealt them one defeat after another.

Last month Obama said the U.S. would not send troops to Libya. Defense Secretary Robert Gates also ruled out the use of ground troops. Gates declared “as long as I’m in this job” troops will not be sent.

U.S. General: Ground Troops to Invade Libya  101210banner4

Neocons have called for a full military response in Libya. Fox News pundit and leading neoconBill Kristol said a few days after the air campaign began that “unlike the president” he would not rule out sending in troops. He said that regardless of Obama’s commitment to not send troops, he would eventually do so.

Prior to the imposition of a no-fly zone and bombing of targets in Libya, U.S., French, British and NATO troops were sent into Libya, ostensibly to gather intelligence on targets.

“The United States, Britain and France have sent several hundred ‘defense advisors’ to train and support the anti-Gaddafi forces in oil-rich Eastern Libya,” the Pakistan Observer reported. The U.S., Britain, and France dispatched special forces troops in Cyrinacia and set-up bases and training centers in late February, the newspaper reported.
