    Re: Arab League condemns broad bombing campaign in Libya

    If the latest quotes from the Arab League Secretary General are representative, it appears that the Arab League may have backtracked on its earlier criticism. Haaretz reported:

    Arab League chief Amr Moussa said on Monday that he respected a UN resolution that authorized military action on Libya, after earlier comments suggested he was concerned by actions taken by Western powers.

    "The Arab League position on Libya was decisive and from the first moment we froze membership of Libya ... Then we asked the United Nations to implement a no-fly zone," he told a news conference with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.


    A reversal of position is helpful. Of course, it does not change the basic facts concerning the Arab League's previously hollow gesture (a declaration not backed by actions) and baseless criticism following Western coalition efforts related to UNSC Res. 1973.

    I would have no problem if they would handle their nut jobs. But they won't. They leave them to us and make it our problem.

    As far as I'm concerned, if they won't solve the problem, they ARE the problem.

    It took less than a page for this thread to become about Obama. Did you call people out for Obama Derangement Syndrome? Let me go recheck the thread to make sure...

    I suffer from no such thing. It's merely a fact that no one in this administration amde such a silly claim. I suggest we see, recognize and know the differences.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I have to wonder if you understand the difference between rebels and protestors.

    the difference is that who is in power calling the shots right now. Let me ask you, 2 1/2 years ago would you have called me nuts if I told you that Obama would be taking us into yet a 3rd Muslim country with military force?

    I think we all know the differences. However, it is people like you that would get to the end of Obama's term and still be arguing that the piss poor job the partyer n chief has done is somehow Bush's fault.

    It would be very Islamic of him. When in doubt and when looking for a rallying cause, remind the people who they are supposed to hate.

    So much between Libya and Pakistan are so related and common that it staggers me how people demand they all be a separate issues simply because they see borders on a map. It's funny how they all come down to oppression and brutality, the same radical religious angles, dictators, former Cold War issues still lingering, and the bitter Sunni tribe. The Western blinders are as black as ever. Looking at the situation through cultural lenses will make those impractical lines on a map dissapear. Then people in the West will begin looking at this like the Muslims in the MENA region do.

    Re: Arab League condemns broad bombing campaign in Libya

    It is humiliating and holds very negative long term consequences that the Western democracies should be asking for permission from the Arab League or the UN as to what is best for the democracy, human rights, and the future of the world. These are the same despots who refuse to recognize women's rights. children's rights, human rights, religious rights, or basic human freedoms, and we have to ask them whether we can eliminate one of the world's most dangerous dictators, responsible for the deaths of thousands.

    What wimps we have become, and it will not serve us, or our children, well. We have apparently learned nothing from our fathers and grandfathers.
