Who can the US hand off the Libyan War to? The EU?Submitted by TexanInSweden on Wed, 03/23/2011 - 11:59
Some experts believe only NATO could effectively take over from the U.S., while others say that keeping the Arab League and Turkey in the coalition is crucial, so an alternative will have to be found. "Perhaps one way around it is to use EU (European Union) military staff and EU military headquarters in Brussels. It is very much an air operation so it is not as complicated as when you have many different services involved. I am sure NATO will remain peripheral to the operation," says Heyman. - CNN

The Libya situation is complicated but could pull the EU together.
More likely rip it apart. The EU is not stable enough to withstand leading a protracted war that entails civil war and regime change. Unless their plan is to start shipping in unemployed starving Irish men like they did back in 1861 in America's Civil War.
The above article from CNN Question and Answers is a very informative article as it does explain the complicated situation that the Libyan War is bringing up. It explains the that US can not afford to go to war against another Muslim country Financially as well as Politically. The Arabs cannot touch it because their already riled up populations would take to the streets in even greater numbers. NATO cannot have it because Arabs Nations will not fly under a NATO Flag and Arab participation is necessary to sell the war to the world.
It seems like the elite jumped into a war and didn't have a plan. However I highly doubt that is the case with a group as meticulous as the Money Power. Maybe the plan was to strengthen the EU military the entire time? After all it is a European problem or so the elite would like us to believe.
"Libya is on the fringes of Europe and the reality is that you can't expect the U.S. to pay for Europe's defense. The U.S. is under all kinds of pressure... the U.S. defense budget is sucking $712 billion from the economy every year. It is also facing pressure over its presence in Afghanistan."
