Granted Americans tend to be self-centered in times like these, and the focus on Jobs and the Economy, especially if your a democrat, while the Republicans focus in on cutting the poor, and lowering tax on the rich, with excuse that this would help economy. Not the reality, as the rich will just use it to buy the politicians off, known as Lobbying, some get money for doing it.
Other millionaire/billionaires just put it in their Swiss Bank Account. Its doubtful they'll be investing in USA during these times of change, as its far to unstable.

While I respect and understand the citizens courageous revolutions in the middle east against their dictorial political western backed masters, I don't feel USA nor Nato should interfere in them.

Afterall, Egypt, Bahrain, Iraq, Syria, etc. began as peaceful demonstrations, while other than first day or so, Libya's rebels were armed and dangerous.  Fact is we don't know whom they are, and a significant amount of them could be "Alqaeda". Infact, it was are nations decision to arm Osama Bin Laden, and his group of (What Reagan referred to as Freedom Fighters"), that spawn "Alqaeda", and the same thing could occur if we start arming these rebels, and that is what they plan to do right now.

However, the media often states they may not be strong enough now, to take down Gadaffi even with No-Fly zone, but, prior, they insisted a no-fly zone was enough and they could take care of Tripoli and Gadaffi. I'm personally uneasy about arming unknown militias.

Frankly we don't know whom these young rebels are, and Sarcozy of France has personal reasons for wanting Gadaffi ousted. Fact is, Gaddaffi had blackmail material on him, as Gaddaffi helped get him elected. I'd like them both ousted.
I haven't liked Sarcozy since day 1, and rather odd how he no sooner gets in office, when they make him the head of natal.
Is it possible that its due to his hav ing such strong, Jewish roots?  Go figure!
In return for Gadaffis good friendship with Sarcozy, he was being rewarded with a position on Security Council, (Ha, now thats a laugh, considering what we all know now) and Sarcozy was helping gadaff buildi up arms, and as for the oil,
Italy is the most dependent, they get a whopping 80 percent at a very cheap price.

Despite his return to the international fold following his 2003 repudiation of state terrorism and of efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction, Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi hasn't been the kind of statesman Western leaders have wanted to honor in their capitals — until now. D


The International Action Center calls on all anti-war and social justice activists to call Emergency Response STOP THE U.S. WAR AGAINST LIBYA AND BAHRAIN actions in their areas on Friday, March 18 or Saturday, Marcy 19, or to mobilize support for any already existing anti-war demonstrations called to mark the anniversary of the Iraq War, with this statement and signs to STOP THE U.S. WAR AGAINST LIBYA AND BAHRAIN, as well as to intensify the mobilization for the April 9th and 10th Anti-War demonstrations in New York and San Francisco called by the United National Antiwar Committee.

On March 17, 2011, Washington showed its true intentions by pushing through a U.N. Security Council resolution that amounts to a declaration of war on the government and people of Libya.
A U.S. attack is the worst possible thing that could happen to the people of Libya. It also puts the unfolding Arab revolutions, which have inspired people across North Africa and Western Asia, in the gravest danger.
The resolution goes beyond a no-fly zone. It includes language saying U.N. member states could "take all necessary measures" ... "by halting attacks by air, land and sea forces under the control of the Gadhafi regime."(, Mar 17)
The new resolution not only calls for attacks on Libyan aircraft and air defenses, but authorizes the strafing and bombing of ground forces as well. The U.S. and French governments immediately announced that they were ready to go. Britain and Italy are aiding. In essence the former colonial powers have begun an armed attack on the Libyan government and its people, backing one side of a civil war.

No matter how one feels about Libya today and the role of the Gadhafi government; regardless of how one evaluates the Libyan opposition, a U.S.-led war or intervention in Libya is a disaster for the Libyan people, and for peace and progress around the world.

The U.S. and its allies are repeating over and over the lie that they are trying to "prevent attacks on civilians" and are acting from humanitarian motives. But nobody should be fooled. Consider these “humanitarians” and how they react to Bahrain.
The U.S. Fifth Fleet is based in Bahrain, which is an absolute monarchy. Its people have been valiantly trying to change their government for weeks. They had some initial success. The king responded with deadly repression and later with hints at reform.

On March 14, however, hours after Secretary of Defense Gates visited Bahrain, the Bahraini government commenced a brutal crackdown, backed up by Saudi Arabian troops. Helicopters, tear gas, rubber bullets, and live ammunition were used, killing and injuring many people. Nearly all of Bahrain's security forces are foreign mercenaries.
Unlike the Libyan rebels, the Bahraini people have absolutely no arms. But there has been no talk of a no-fly zone over Bahrain, let alone attacks on the murderous Bahraini and Saudi armies.
This is because the real motivation for the U.S. and its allies in both Bahrain and Libya, and indeed the whole region, is to control the OIL! It is Washington’s main strategic interest and a primary financial interest for U.S. big business.
This is true even though the U.S. is not directly dependent on imported oil from Libya. Oil is a worldwide commodity, and any country which imports oil must deal with a world market, no matter from which individual country or countries they import the oil.
Of even more importance to the U.S. and Europeans is who controls the flow of oil. A military presence or a reliable puppet in Libya would give Washington --and to a lesser extent the European imperialists -- control of the oil spigot to Europe and also establish a military presence in North Africa from which to influence or prevent the development of the revolutions, especially in Egypt and Tunisia.

Not only a demonization campaign against the Libyan leader, but every form of fraud and propaganda is being used to push for this intervention, including a supposed "vote" by the Arab League supporting the latest U.N. resolution. Left unsaid is the fact that only 11 of the 22 members of the League even attended the meeting, which was held behind closed doors. Two of these 11 attending members, Syria and Algeria, made clear that they were completely opposed to military intervention in Libya.

Meanwhile the corporate media has ignored a resolution by the African Union, representing 53 countries, which adamantly rejected a no-fly zone or other intervention.

The U. S. blocked any UN action, even a toothless resolution, during the massive Israeli bombardment of Gaza in 2008 and also during the Israeli bombing and attempted invasion of Lebanon in 2006, as well as the continued bombardment of Gaza as recently as this week!.
It is important that peace-loving and progressive people around the world develop a consistent approach opposing ALL U.S. intervention. This is the only way to avoid becoming just an echo of the U.S. State Department and Pentagon.

U.S., French, British, Italian hands off Libya!
NO to the U.S. supported attack on the people's movement of Bahrain!
U.S. Out of Arab and African Lands!

Sarkozy under fire for nuclear deal to secure nurses’ release

Some feel Sarcozy wants the showdown with Gadaffi, because he lost popularity when news of the nuke deal got out, and he's not expected to win re-election. Following many leaders maneuvers to get re-elected, is to use scare tactics, and appear as though your a great protector. It worked for George W. Bush, whom Sarcozy got along with wonderfully.
Again, George W. Bush, Condi and Gaddaffi all got along real well, since Gadaffi gave 1.5 billion to Bush, and helped round up so-called "Terrorist" claiming they were Alqaeda_rather they were or not, nobody knows for sure? Bush allowed Saudis and men like Gadaffi to imprison and torture them. I expect, these are the ones they now are claiming innocently persecuted now_as that is the way of these hypocritical imperialistic greedy thugs.

Even if you don't follow me, or agree with me on these things, we all have heard over and over that we're broke.

So broke, the Republicans feel unions should be abolished, while ignoring fact we're spending billions already on two wars,
which seem to be endless, and now they are getting us yet into another one.
Its a dangerous game, and its time to quit playing the Holy Roman Empire, and get make to whats best for our Nation, America.
