With reports that NATO’s going to stop bombing Libya by the end of the month, a number of US Senators are hoping to get in on the ground floor of open-ended funding for the new regime, something which they’re sure is a good idea.
Sen. John McCain (R – AZ) said the US needed to “deepen our support for the Libyan people” with major funding for the National Transitional Council (NTC), saying the money would let the NTC focus on “strengthening their national unity.”
“We’ll get our money back,” insisted Sen. Lindsay Graham (R – SC), who says he’s positive the NTC would eventually reimburse the US for funding them, and that the funding “will allow American business to prosper from a free Libya.”
The US started bombing Libya in March, and while most of Congress expressed concern about the lack of Congressional authorization for the war, Sens. McCain and Graham were both outspoken supporters of the attacks.

Such typical American arrogance. Who says the people of Libya WANT Americans to have any "role" in their country?
Libya is one of the wealthiest nations in the middle east. Therefore what these Arschlochs are talking about is bribing the NTC to love us while raiding the taxpayer, again.
Did anyone bother asking them how they intend to finance this giveaway of US taxpayer cash that we don't have? Especially since McCrazy and his fat-butt stooge buddy only recently stood at the microphones lecturing Obama on how we need to be more responsible in how we spend the taxpayers $$$. Oh, well, but "they'll be able to pay us back!!!" Well, Mac, how's that payback from Iraq going – and Afghanistan? I don't remember seeing any boatloads of cash coming our way in repayment for "fighting for their freedoms." The Iraqis don't intend to pay us for bombing their country back into the stone age – and I wouldn't expect the Libyans to do so either.
Somebody want to tell me why we are still listening to these…can't find anything that would get past the censor-bot.

1) Emit call for tender at newly refurbished office in Tripoli with a US flag in front.
2) Two "security" outfits and two "oil exploration" outfits turn up and submit their dossiers.
3) Hand each a container of greenbacks freshly printed at the Fed that were exchanged with US T-Bills at Goldman-Sachs.
5) Kickbacks for selected Senators and assorted hanger-ons.
McCain and Graham need to shut up. These two losers promoted these Zionist wars from the beginning, and should cease giving advice. Both Senators need to be replaced in the Senate by their States.
Hey, moron MadMcCain, the only thing the US needs to do is deepen its support for the American people. For once. And the American people need to start electing a Congress that will do just that. The day that lunatic is not elected to Congress will be one of the greatest days in US history.
Yeah! Sadly McCain is still fighting the Viet War from 40 years ago. He was flying a Skyhawk jet, the only one they would trust him with, and was still shot down. His prison time with other US POW'sa in N Viet Nam was no fun, but over 50,000 US military were blown to bits or died in battle while he stayed alive. The only reason we would be so enthusiatic about getting into Libya is in hopes of getting oil concessions away from the French, Italians, and Brits.
McCain and Graham bloviating again?
Now, someone tell me he still doesn't understand why Americans no longer trust their "leaders."
Here is a short documentary on Libya "before and after" the "Revolution". Happy kids, happy people, prosperous country. Now everything is destroyed.
For the sake of American oil companies the clowns are rushing there with blank checks hoping to secure the oil contracts for their rich friends.
