    an intervention is overdue. the rest of the world should be standing and acting together with the U.S. and saying enough is enough.

    hundreds of kids and women are being murdered by their government for registering their legitimate demands, while the rest of the world who has the necessary means to stop these killings just curl up under their desk Costanza style and go back to sleep.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Why?

    Africa has had worst atrocities done upon it by the Government.
    The US and NATO/UN most certainly did not act with such similar speed to atrocities a million times worse than what is happening now in Libya.

    I suppose the oil must play a role eh ....

    and screw the oil. who knows, someday the voting public might actually elect someone who will be untouched by corruption. somebody, somewhere has to love the truth.
    Not even in the past. In the last decade, genocides where tens of thousands have died have been happening. Where was the world then?

    Libya loses a couple of hundred and people are starting talking about war and intervention? You can understand my confusion right?

    The Libyan people can ask for what they want. They can also fight for it.
    I do not want any of my tax money spent on it. What is happening in Libya is not that tragic compared to their neighbours on the continent.

    The US and UN (when the UN still had a purpose) acted with great speed to help S. Korea.

    They didn't have huge oil reserves. Neither does Haiti, Panama, Bosnia, Grenada or Somalia. We helped out anyway.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    What about Sudan? Who I think atrocities and deaths eclipses many of the others you mentioned.

    Darfur did not call for a intervention and war. Why should Libya?
    What makes Libya so special to get the world's attention but Darfur was ignored?

    We would have to go up against the Chinese Army and the Muslim militias that are committing the genocide, if we intervened in Sudan. I don't think anyone is ready to open that can of worms.

    You ready for U.S. forces to go into Sudan and start hosing down Muslims with heavy weapons fire? Be honest.

    Why should Libya register the world's attention when Darfur did not? What makes Libya so damn special? Just thinking about it makes me furious. Tens of thousands died in Darfur. Thousands and the UN most certainly did not act in the same speed.

    Leave Libya alone. Let them deal with it and their own Government.
    And if the people die. Well ... every revolution in history has shed blood. This will be no different.
    Yeah, ya'll expect us to sit back and watch, while ya'll **** things up worse than they already are.

    Hey! I say let'em get after it.

    For that matter, why are people that are today calling for intervention in Linya so aghast about our war against IRaq? In Hussein you had a brutal dictator that spent decades slaughtering opposition, going so far as to gas an entire village. I thought eliminating despotic leaders from long term genocide was a BAD idea...

    Only if the United States does it. If someone else does it, it's wonderful and champagne rains from the heavens.

    Arrogance and stupidity are bad combination.

    Its very interesting to see some of the most spineless chicken ****s on the planet that post on this site suddenly calling for someone ELSE (not THEM mind you...they would never lower themselves to actually back their words and go do the job themselves) to go to war over a brutal dictator that is killing his people. The same people that would and have called Bush a war criminal for removing the same kind of sadistic asshole. I guess that little party letter behind the presidents name means everything...
