    Is the bombardation in Lybia a war to get oil deposits??

    Is the bombardation in Lybia another fake war (like Iraq's one) to get oil deposits??

    Not sure. But bombardation is unfortunate.

    Where is the option "Help Islamists to establish Muslim State in Lybia"?

    The poll itself is skewed. It only provides for two options, when in reality there are several factors. To say that the war is solely about oil is total BS. Does oil play a factor? Yes, but it is not the sole reason.

    LOL Bombardation hahahaha oh man that should be the next word to be added to the OED...
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    And Palin didn't even come up with that one...

    Seriously, Libya already sells much of its oil to European countries so what would the point be?

    Right... because Ghadaffi massacring the civilians in the east of the country and then reasserting dictatorial control over the country would be SO much better...

    You're right. Honestly I'm a bit sick of the whole "war/blood for oil" bullcrap. It's a huge simplification of the realities and decision-making in going to war. And the fact that we don't even get a whole lot of oil from Libya just ****s on that rationale.

    why would it be there where already oil deals done with Libya.Regardless of a countries resources we should always support democracy over dictatorship when we are able to do so.

    I agree. We have supported too many tyrants in the past. It is about time we support the PEOPLE of the Middle East and other parts of the world. Perhaps if we do that, there wouldn't be so much hatred of the U.S. in many parts of the world.
