It is already been a major concession from the arabs, long wary of US and Western powers, with frequent calls for the the 'death to US', 'death to
infidels', etc, etc.
That today the Arab league could unanimously seek for western powers help through a security council session, speaks volumes.
Amongst many, it proves their capabilites and tech is sorely lacking that they could not have done it on their own in order to help their fellow
arabs. They know full well why. Buying armaments is different from building up a capable advanced society. It requires certain ingredients and in the
light of current events, may they be aware of what they are.
But still, at least the Arab league has its heart in the right place, and that is to save our fellow human Libyan brothers and sisters, no matter the
cost. It goes to show how common our values and aspirations in life each and every human shares, no matter our differences.
And that cost will not be costly financially. It is from the heart called honour. Today, the arab league had called for help. Tomorrow it may be US or
western powers whom will call for help in the name of humankind's survival. The only constant in life are changes, for no one will know what tomorrow
will bring. That help will be appreciated and return in kind, as long as there is honour.
Some pratical minded will say honour is just a word, like love, which doesnt pay the rent. But without love, that sense of purpose in life is
meaningless and cold. It is only a human character trait but priceless beyond measure. Similarly with honuor. Without it, there is no sense in any
committment or pledges made, and those that lack it will pay a price beyond mere finacial costs. We came into this world with nothing and will leave
with nothing anyway.
To Gaddafi, we are ready and waiting. The clock....is ticking.......
