‘Odyssey Dawn’: U.S. cruise missiles herald the beginning of the end for Gaddafi
An amassed fleet of U.S. warships and submarines in the Mediterranean targeted Gaddafi’s defences near Tripoli and the town of Misurata.
It was part of a combined assault led by the U.S., which also saw Tomahawk-equipped British submarines bombard coastal air-defence targets.
The Pentagon reported that 112 Tomahawk missiles had been fired from both U.S. and British ships and submarines in Operation Odyssey Dawn.
A spokesman said: ‘The missiles struck more than 20 integrated air-defence systems and other defence facilities ashore. These strikes were carefully co-ordinated with our coalition partners.
‘The targets themselves were selected based on a collective assessment that the sites either pose a direct threat to the coalition pilots or, through use by the regime, pose a direct threat to the people of Libya.
‘I want to stress that this is just the first phase of what will likely be a multi-phased military operation designed to enforce the United Nations resolution and deny the Libyan regime the ability to use force against its own people.’
The Image of the Beast is Rising Up
The Beast from the Earth
“11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb, but he sounded like a dragon. 12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast on his behalf and compels the earth and those who live on it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. 13 He also performs great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth before people. 14 He deceives those who live on the earth because of the signs that he is permitted to perform on behalf of the beast,”
One came out of the sea, and the other out of the earth.
The beast that came up from the earth is the United States. Old Rome fell to the sword of its day. It has arisen out of the sea. It is a monster. The Leviathan.
