    I have no problem providing humanitarian aid, but we should have no part whatsoever militarily. They don't want our help, we need to keep our nose out of other people's business.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Shouldn't the US remain out of this conflict? I mean, if Gadaffi(s) wins, the last thing we want is fore him to spew more anti-western propagadna to the rest of the world just because we provided assistance to the rebels.

    No, it has to do with the fact that Berlusconi and Gaddafi are bosom buddies and have shared teenage prostitutes together.

    Have we even been asked for help? If not, we certainly shouldn't be getting involved. And even if we were asked, I don't know how much aid we should be giving them. I'd be okay with some humanitarian aid if it was requested. I'd even be okay with some limited military intervention as part of NATO or UN forces, but that's about it.

    You don't read too well. He clearly said:
    And in the view by the rest of the Middle East
    i.e. it's not his opinion but how he believes ME opinion would fall. What's hippy talk about that? You think the ME would applaud US military intervention in Libya?

    A no-fly zone would be fraught with logistical impossibilities. The U.S. should not be directing anything, but should participate in whatever UN action is taken. And, we can send food and medicine.

    We do not need another black hawk down scenario.

    He's already been doing that for years. Nobody frankly gives a flying **** about his delusional rants.
