    Regime supporters form deliberate human shields around targets

    French air raids and US Tomahawk missiles pounded targets in Libya on Saturday, in an international campaign to prevent Moammar Gadhafi from crushing a month-old uprising against his rule.
    "Crowds are forming around the targets identified by France," the television reported, showing pictures of flag-waving people gathering to serve as human shields.

    Only fools and wild eyed crazies would put themselves in harms way.

    There have been 114 Cruise Missiles launched at 20 targets so that part os over and with about 5 missiles on each target those are toast.

    If they want to die for a tyrant I say let them. I would not give a damn if they want to be really stupid.

    The opposition claims that many of these human shields are children from orphanages and the families of soldiers. I doubt they want to be there.

    It's hard to know who these people are.

    They could be innocent civilians who are being coerced. Gads. What a mess.

    One thing is certain: they're not combatants and can't be engaged.

    No, no, no...killing non-combatants during military operations is a war crime and the perpetrators should stand trial for those crimes.
