I am ashamed as an American that we fight some third world country without a modern military. We need to pick on someone our own size. I am a man dammit, I love my country, but my country needs to act like a man and pick a fight with Russia, china and GB all at the same time for it to be interesting. We should be ashamed...its like a tank vs a Hyundai.
If it was a modern war we would be seeing body bags by the plane full coming, even a possibility of a carrier loss. state of the art SAM systems...but noo..we have to pick on some third world rag tag African country with a lot of oil...

Have you even considered the person your talking to may live in Iraq or even Libya? This an International forum. The Iraqi people you are suggesting would prefer to have Saddam insane and his torture chambers back and up and running? I'd love to see your source?

Libya has brushed off the UN resolution. At a news conference in Tripoli, the deputy foreign minister Khaled Kaim said the country would deal positively with it, and he thanked nations who abstained from the vote.
He said Libya had offered a ceasefire, saying it could happen immediately – although the “technicalities” he said would need to be worked out with the UN.
The government’s intention, and that of the police and armed forces, was the protection of civilians everywhere in the country, he insisted.

WTF is the problem with you people? Gaddafi threatens to bomb his own citizens for heavens sake.
The funniest thing is if he indeed scrambles his warplanes and massacres his own people, you lot will say "yeah it's their business and we shouldn't bother them".
You guys don't care the slightest for people's lives, you only care about the fact that the oh-so-hated-US is involved.
