Uhh or it could be the fact that Qaddafi is a certified psycho path that has turned military lose on his people authorizing them to kill any protesters......
Or the fact that hes hiring mercenaries from all over to come and do what the other half of his military wont.....
Or the fact that hes gone on live television telling the world that if the protesters want to die then he will kill them all...........
Maybe the fact that he has Jim Jones syndrome and is hell bent on taking his whole country down with him in blood if he is going down too?
Nahh........couldnt be any of that..........

But wars make money remember?
Wait. That was when we manufacured our own goods in the US.
Now we outsource almost everything, so.. it will make China more money!
I am sickened by this, and yes, I agree, the statement becomes more of a truism each day that goes by, each week that the King continues to rule. He chooses to "not defend" rules of law, he continues to push a law that was declared Unconstitutional, and now decides to tell another country, (the second in as many weeks) that their leader must step down.
So he fancies himself not only the King of the US, but the world, as well? Or at least some parts of it?
I am simply at a loss right now, I truly am. Not that I didn't see it coming, but I suppose this is what was meant by "The Audacity" of Hope.
Little did the unsuspecting voters know...
Unfortunately, I do not view the current WH Occupier as a person who desires American Sovereignty and we know he's aligned with Soros. So what's his MO in this?
This is still an emergent theory and I'm not sure where it's going but I'm trying to follow the money.
Is Barack Obama About To Order The U.S. Military To Invade Libya?
Friday, February 25, 2011 5:34
A recent article in the Wall Street Journal went on and on about how concerned the U.S. government is about the "weapons of mass destruction" that are still under Gadhafi's control....
The government of Col. Moammar Gadhafi hasn't destroyed significant stockpiles of mustard gas and other chemical-weapons agents, raising fears in Washington about what could happen to them—and whether they may be used—as Libya slides further into chaos.
The Wall Street Journal article also stated that U.S. officials believe that Gadhafi possesses "1,000 metric tons of uranium yellowcake" which they believe are a serious threat to the international community.
Doesn't that sound exactly like something we have all been told before?
U.S. Fears Tripoli May Deploy Gas As Chaos Mounts
Gaddafis' hidden billions: Dubai banks, plush London pads and Italian waterLibya's oil wealth has been siphoned out of the country by a powerful elite – including Gaddafi and his nine children
The Gaddafi family could have billions of dollars of funds hidden in secret bank accounts in Dubai, south-east Asia and the Persian Gulf, much of it likely to have come from Libya's vast oil revenues, according to analysis by leading Middle East experts.
Professor Tim Niblock, a specialist in Middle Eastern politics at the University of Exeter, has identified a gap of several billion dollars a year between the amount Libya makes from its oil reserves and government spending – a shortfall he expects has contributed greatly to the wealth of Muammar Gaddafi and his nine children.
Qaddafi Deposited Billions in London Ahead of Asset Freeze
Published February 26, 2011
LONDON -- As the United States moved to lock up the American assets of Muammar al- Qaddafi Friday, it was revealed the Libyan leader secretly deposited £3 billion --$4.8 billion -- with one of London's private wealth managers last week in an attempt to protect his family's fortunes.
The deal was brokered on Qaddafi’s behalf by a Swiss-based intermediary who had previously approached another well-known British stockbroking firm five weeks ago with a view to depositing funds.
Obama wielded presidential power in an executive order, seizing assets and blocking any property in the U.S. belonging to Qaddafi or his children.
In a statement, Obama said the measures were specifically targeted against the Qaddafi government and not the material wealth of the Libyan people themselves.
"By any measure, Qaddafi’s government has violated international norms and common decency and must be held accountable," Obama said in a statement.
"These sanctions therefore target the Qaddafi government, while protecting the assets that belong to the people of Libya."
