I agree that the United Nations needs to get involved to stop the blood spill in Libya by their crazed leader. My issue is this...Why are these countries relying on the United States military to facilitate the attack on Gaddafi's defenses and military hardware? I sure hope they will help finance the attack. This proves to these US hating trolls that although not perfect, the United States is still the only major, military superpower in the world. If only we would stop living by UN war policies, we could end wars in days or weeks rather than years. Did you know that an American soldier was not allowed to fire back at an enemy if there were innocents standing in front of the enemy? The enemy can fire on us and we had to wait until innocents were out of the way. No wonder we lose so many soldiers.

So you should just shoot at them and hope the bullet misses the civilian?

Agreed, and also the united nations is a corrupted organization, they only create more chaos, they dont seek to end wars, like they claimed to do.


I would assume russia would step in this conflict because they wont wait longer for the american empire, trying to take over russia.

I really don't understand why people say this will be WW3. I didn't know Gaddafi was so powerful as to start WW3.

That will be 4 continents at war. I don't know what exactly defines a WW, but I bet we're not too far from one.

It will not start WW3! Come on people... I see these types of comments on a daily basis from these people. It hasn't happened then and it won't happen now. When a bird poops from the clouds, they think WW3 is at hand.

Well there you go! I suggest you find out what constitutes a WW before claiming one will start soon.

There's no reason for the United States to lead this. Gaddafi's air force isn't that large that other neighboring countries couldn't enforce the no fly zone. When will the United States start letting other countries settle their own regional conflicts? Why should we risk losing our young men and women in a country where the people are revolting against their own government?

You are saying you are in favour of killing any number of civilians for the sake of time?

This is really my point exactly. All countries look to the United States to resolve all conflicts in the world. It makes me proud to be an American but I feel others should step in when it is needed. Netanyahu just said on an interview tonight that the United States military is the most powerful in the world and feels we should take out Iran before they get the N bomb. I think the Arabian states need to fulfill that goal.

No, I am saying that war is war and we need to do everything possible to prevent innocent casualties. BUT, if we are being fired upon, we need to retaliate immediately to save ourselves.

One question to find out what kind of person you are.

"Terrorists" are firing at you from a building. But its hard to get a lock with your rifle. You have an airstrike among one of your options. What do you do?

I need more information...If the building has been abandoned by innocents and there are multiple terrorists in the building, I would say take out the building. In most cases, the military already knows who is in the building by prior analysis and x-ray tools equipped on humvees and planes.

If they wanted a no fly zone without firing a single missile then they should have just sent in spanish air traffic controllers, there would have been no flights within hours.
