    I doubt that is ALL they would be doing, in honesty.... but EVEN doing that is 'picking sides'... what happens if ghadaffi beats down the resistance?? Are they going to create MORE resistance fighters>?? Are they going to stir up civil war to accomplish the objectives?? Are they going to dress themselves as rebels ??

    Not a good idea from the get go.

    You jokers didn't have a prayer without us. Neville Chamberlin et al was the order of the day for you sheep. Lend lease was what kept the Russians in supplies. And then they reniged on their debts to us. Such a rewriting of history in your mind is so easily reduced to complete rubble.
    I understand why you would have an inferiority complex by this date, but try and snap out of it before you polish the Queens slippers.

    Isn't that as far as Kennedy wanted to go in Nam?

    Mate, just look at the sheer statistics. The death toll, on each side. Even Wikipedia proves your nationalist bull**** wrong. Take a gander.

    I cannot explain to you how insulting it is to the millions of Imperial and Soviet dead that you think throwing money at the problem, Lend Lease, and the Americans finally entering the War in Europe in 1944 after the Nazis were already in retreat, is somehow equivalent to the Britain withstanding the Blitz, fighting the Nazis alone for two years, and the Soviet Union beating back the largest military operation in the history of man.

    Libyans begged for help: from Bush!

    "Bring Bush! Make a no fly zone, bomb the planes," shouted soldier-turned-rebel Nasr Ali, referring to a no-fly zone imposed on Iraq in 1991 by then U.S. President George Bush.

    A no-fly zone would be a good idea, I agree.

    Here is a rare point of agreement between us. I also believe a no-fly zone would be helpful on so many fronts at this moment in time...

    As sorry as I am for the Russian people themselves, since they suffered millions upon millions of losses in WWII, the fact is that happened only because Hitler stabbed Stalin in the back. Stalin had planned to be Hitler's ally. Instead, he became Hitler's stooge, and in doing so inadvertently turned the war around to the allies' favor.
