Why should Obama do anything?   What can he (WE) do anyway?

Exactly how many billions of dollars, that we don't have, are we willing to spend?   How many American lives is this worth?

I vote $0 and 0 lives.  Stay out of it and praise Obama for having more sense than his predecessor.

Well as long as it's not our Sun, which does not have the Chandrasekhar mass to go supernova, we still have hope. Take care Gandalf, as Khadaffi is saying on TV at this moment that this star is the rising star of arab freedom threatened by western forces linked to Al-Qaida. Sauron is showing the world his oil ring knowing it mesmerises them. I hope you have your magic staff ready to neutralize this hanky-panky.

KSA ? oh, I get it.

3/11 is not like Christmas, it may have an 'official date', but the effects have already affected people or what you see would not have such unifying power on the diverse minds of all involved.

Should DC be concerned, who knows?  But don't you find it interesting the we now have a new call to arms in the last few days over  that boogie man in the closet next door, USA citizen be damned.

All you ZH folks who don't know what "C" Street is, need to do homework.  More than your pocketbook is involved.

add this to the soup:

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi said in an interview broadcast Wednesday that Libyans would fight back if Western nations impose a no-fly zone to prevent the regime from using its air force to bomb government opponents staging a rebellion.


and what you have is a classic recipe for a complete clusterfuck.

If Q blows oil dumps he will make Russia and Venezuela and Iran very happy. They'll all be running to the bank like the Canacks.  Quack quacking gold backs, not green backs!! 'Cos that's Uncle Sam's toasted roast when oil hits the post of 200/bbl.

Who's to say we aren't secretly backing Daffy?

Maybe that British commando unit was meant to disorient the rebels by feeding them false intelligence and send them into the jaws of death.

Should we be asking ourselves what would the Saudi King want and then maybe assume we are doing his bidding ?

Perhaps all of this official concern for the civilians is just theater.

Oh, we absolutely are. We constantly sell weapons to whoever is on the losing side - government forces AND the rebels.

Once all their energy has been tapped, we'll roll our tanks in and secure strategic sites (ie, oil infrastructure).

Classic divide and conquer.

You sound like you are pounding a key of Appassionata. Like playing ringa-ringa-roses, pocket full of posies; going round the globe selling lovely passion flowers of venomous malice. By the way, repeat performance of Appassionata having been played in Baghdad/Afghanistan, now scheduled for Libya-Iran-KSA et al. will be very costly; especially with a green back that looks, feels, like toilet paper. Being distributed by young US soldiers on food-stamp rations.Tall order for ongoing NWO. When you have a new generation of barbarians with nothing to lose on their backs except their bare bones. From Pakistan to Mauritania...What was that Marines song we heard the other day...? Play it again Sam!

The concern for the civilians might just be that. As TPTB always seem to pick and choose when and where to get involved. Their illusion of morals is never applied consistently. There may be a motive other than oil. Who knows. But it would be safe to assume they don't care about the people.

if the US really gives a shit about what happens to the people...then why did they demand immunity from prosecution for the mercenaries in Libya?

for the answer to that (and many more revealing insights regarding our intentions) you may want to inquire as to just whom is paying for these mercenaries.

According to the Mail, the SAS were captured with the following equipment:

1. Guns and ammunition. (Check)

2. Maps (Check)

3. Fake passports (What?)

4. Explosives (What?)


There's no way this was a "diplomatic mission", when a British destroyer is moored 15 minutes stroll away from the Rebel HQ in Benghazi. Things just get weirder and weirder every time there's a conflict.

Obviously not, and nobody said it was.  The "diplomat" was MI6, and the mission was a classic special forces operation--help stand up the rebellion.

Yes, my thoughts exactly. Our governments are only 'worried' about civilian deaths when it benefits them to worry.

It's tempting to wonder whether the SAS team were sent in to kill the rebel leaders, rather than help them.

I assure you that the Muslims around this world know who and what "C" Street is and has done. 

The plans of the righteous are unraveling and the gold goal maybe be lost to that arrogance.  Not so easy to repeat Indonesia these days is it?

The behind the scenes story here is all about who's God is best.  Their God, your God, or the no god of communists...the work is never done.

We bombed his home when we 'thought' he did the Lockerbe Plane, now we know HE did it.

I am the last person to say go in, but this time we have good reason.  And the people have ASKED for our help this time.

No we will wait until half the rebel forces have been murdered before we do something ( haven't gotten all those commission and royality contracts in place yet).

Actually you're not the last person to say "we" should go in.  I for one think the US government should stay out of the conflict altogether.

And I'm sure there are plenty of other people on this site who feel the same way.

YOU, on the other hand, are free to sign up or volunteer to fight.  No one is stopping you.  Become a mercenary already...and stop signing other people's death warrants.

We will wait until most of the rebels are killed, because then it will be much easier to roll in and make the oil, oops, sorry, Libya, safe for democracy, as most of the people with sufficient balls to object will have been killed already.
