    AJE mentioning Machine Guns, Snipers, and mercenaries, being used on protestors.
    Protests are apparently very widespread despite lack of much getting out.

    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    If thousands of people massed together and demanded the overthrow of the American government, our government would turn machine guns on them, too. And unless I was among the protesters, I'd support them in doing so.

    Depends in what they're protesting over really, and the validity of the government.

    In a democracy the government would be justified to defend itself. In a dictatorship, not so much.

    A dictatorship could be a good thing if the dictator puts the people before himself. It is very rare.

    What do you have against the Libyan people? Do you know any? Or are you just a racist?

    True.

    Why would you admit to that? You know just because the "leaders" change does not mean the system does. And if the system is corrupt it then needs to go.

    How pedestrian...last time I looked Libyans weren't our BFFs. So if there are fewer of them it is of no concern to me.
