    Ive decided though that all this revisionist history is far too entertaining to start debunking!

    Onward!
    Tell me about it...I'm a history major and as much as I like Marteau some of his opinions are just flat out crazy.

    Crap. An important thread on an important topic is once again turned into an international weenie-wagging contest instigated by a first-class America-hating troll, and continued on for four freaking pages by a bunch of fools who can't wait to get his hook in their mouths.

    Lame, dammit. Just lame.

    You are a history major? Good luck with that in the job market. Soon you will be unemployed like me and the million other History majors:p

    The anti-Gadhafi forces have less ammo and weapons than Gadhafi. So it was bound to happen sooner than later. Without international help, Gadhafi is going to win. And he will most certainly cull the Libyan population.

    And they would be right to remind you. You can only live with your parents for so long.

    If you think Diem was a democratic ruler, then I suggest you revisit your Vietnam history. Part of the reason we got involved in Southeast Asia, and wanted to maintain the partition, was that we knew Ho Chi Minh would have won in a real election.

    But that's all water under the bridge. As for your point about the mustard gas, if Gaddafi or a third party makes a move on the mustard gas facility, we'll know about it and we have the option of taking it out with an air strike. Still no real need to get ground forces involved.
    I have to read up on my history?
    You may have to.

    There was some ideology in there too. Not likely a shared one.
