    Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Code Pink and other pinkos were involved in the Gaza Flotilla. I can't help but think they are involved in all of these "spontaneous" uprisings too. I hope our pilots don't have to fly over Libya. Let France do it, it's their business not ours. They use the light oil from Libya, we don't. Gad, sickening world.

    UN Security Council Authorizes Military Strikes on Libya
    "Any foreign military act against Libya will expose all air and maritime traffic in the Mediterranean Sea to danger and civilian and military [facilities] will become targets of Libya's counter-attack," the ministry said in a statement.

    Qua-Daffy sucks and needed to be dead 30 years ago. Go ahead, give him the business.

    Hopefully it's not too late for some "change".

    It could be just a matter of hours before British and French aircraft, along with an undefined Arab ally, could be attacking Gaddafi's air defences and ground forces. Does anyone think this is a bad idea?
    I hope we stay out, it will be nice to see the children acting all grown up.

    Eventually, Gadaffi and his troops will have to be taken out, and it remains to be seen if the rebels will be able to do it. The UN Resolution does allow for international assistance (arms), but no foreign country can occupy Libya, so as of right now the rebels will have to do the ground fighting. IMO, that's they way it should stay.

    This is exactly why I oppose this. "At least they're doing something" is NOT a valid reason to launch a war of choice. The risks are substantial, and "at least they're doing something" just fills an emotional need to assuage our own guilt and act like we're helping, when the conflict is not about us and never has been.

    Maybe air strikes will be able to sweep away Gaddafi's regime easily in a matter of days. Equally likely though is that we'll get bogged down in yet another quagmire. And frankly the potential downside is a lot greater than the potential upside.

    Oh, so it's okay if they die, but not you?
