Russia? Iran? Syria? any others.....


Um, no. Russia HAS to say that, they always do. China will say the same thing, but that's all. Iran's probably licking it's lips waiting to try and fill any power vacuum as always.

This is an absolute disgrace. The West attacking another country for reasons we will never be told directly. The uprising after decades and they ability of the 'rebels' organise themselves is just way too convenient. There are other motives here - and you can be sure money will be the root of it. How much oil do Libya have?




Libya is an OPEC member and holds the largest proven oil reserves in Africa. Says wikipedia. And picture here shows the export countries.

Libyan TV reports Civilian casualties in Tripoli


I wouldn't put it past him one bit to bomb a building full of civilians and blame it on the coalition just to try and rally Libyans behind him.

Libya only account for 2% of the world's oil.

Maybe the reason everyone got involved in this was to test new weapons? A proper test of HAARP for instance?

Obama speech highlights

we are answering the calls of a threated people

the U.S. will not be sending in ground troops.

U.S. will contribute its unique capabilities to protect Libyan citizens

We cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people there will be no mercy.

Actions have consequences




President Obama spoke by cell phone because the networks could not get him on a video feed

Read the official EU press release. Their stated aim is for Gadaffi to relinquish control immediately, and for a swift democratic transition.

This is so odd... Our president addressing U.S. citizens via cellphone due to 'satellite' problems. Yet, ABCnews has plenty of commentators on hand via satellite from all over the world, even in Libya...

Electronic Attack is something the USA is extremely good at.

It can comprise a lot of things.

Monitoring analysis of enemy comms in real time (Rivet Joint)
Anti Radar Jamming.
Anti Radar Attacks using HARM missiles.
Disruption and subversion of enemy Telecoms. Including TV, phone and internet. (EC-130 Compass Call).

The US/UK and others can quite capably 'break stuff' and have limited EA capacity but not on the same level as the USA.
