    News of my “overestimating” is greatly exaggerated.

    The article’s subtitle says “The Sudanese army has seized a town in southern Libya that is the gateway to oilfields crucial to rebel hopes of establishing financial independence”. This subtitle would clearly be a big deal if the US/NATO thought Sudan was going after the oil. This is why a few posts, in response to this article, are talking about how this changes everything, because it would.

    Rather than assume that this is a game changer for the U.S. in its Non-War in Libya, I did what I usually do and looked for additional information on the topic. Upon realizing there were no other articles, I verified the source and checked the date.

    Now, if you will kindly read what I wrote next time you quote me, I’d appreciate it.

    Actually, the only thing of concern is getting rid of Gadafhi. So long as Sudan does not interfere with that agenda I doubt there are many important people outside of Libya who care enough to bring attention to it.

    Why?

    That notion goes against our core concepts of freedom and self determination. Self determination doesn't mean the right to decide your own course and fate so long as we agree with it. Only when their course is a threat to us and we have to do something in self defense do we have the right to interfere with another culture/nation.

    Very bad indeed, I hope this doesn't complicate the situation there anymore.
