What kind of Toyota is that in pic 13? As long as those savages blow each other up instead of us I could care less about it.

This is why I don't think Qadaffi is going to lose power any time soon.

1.) We're highly unlikely to kill him with airstrikes. Airstrikes are a shitty assassination tool.
2.) Airpower by itself doesn't win wars. Without at least the threat of a ground war, airpower by itself has never won a war. It's just a really expensive way to make your displeasure known.
3.) The Libyan rebels are not an effective ground component to the war.

IMO, we're just wasting a few billion in munitions in Libya. If we'd gone in earlier by just two weeks, it would be over already with the rebels in charge. As it is, it'll take a much, much, much more expensive campaign to get rid of Qadaffi.

probably from the French
FN isn't French, and France doesn't issue F2000s.

Apparently the Libyan military actually bought a small number of them a while back, including some LTL weapons - which would explain the 40mm launcher.

Yea I know its origin is Belgium, I just figured that since France has more ties in Libya than the other European countries, it most likely came from the French.

Because the GLA trucks in CnC:G were inspired by this kinda stuff. People in 3rd world countries have been doing this shit since at least the late 80s/early 90s.
