    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?
    God bless the British and French.

    Idiotic British. Why are we getting involved? This is not our concern.
    We should have (for once) followed US's lead.

    In b4 more Blacks are massacred because the rebels get weapons from Egypt
    b4 the Europeans kill a few civilians and start an insurgency and blame game.
    b4 Gaddafi clings onto power and we lose all our oil contracts and they get given to another country
    b4 we taint the revolution and enable extremists to get into power.

    We should have done nothing. The "revolution" has been well and truly tainted

    Edit: The French helping is just ****ing amusing on so many levels.
    Why is the French not helping in IC where the election was forged and a civil war is breaking out hm?

    Amusing? I'd hate to see what it looks like when you find something annoying.

    That is not a surprise.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Neither are you, so given our relative positions, I think I'm ahead by a long shot.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    No, not if you're not taking the lead. By definition, you can't be ahead at all.

    I believe that your boy Obama has the intention and the ability to ruin this country for quite a long time. Even if he is in office for only 4 years, he could enact programs and policies that would take us decades to recover from. If we ever do.

    Obama isn't capable of being the leader of the free world, anyway. He isn't going along with this because it's the right thing to do, but because he doesn't have the balls to do anything else.

    Ahead of what? Leadership would be stating a solid case and taking the lead on action to curtail bloodshed, or helping to remove Ghaddafi from power. We've done neither.
