if russia threatens to intervene, the US is in serious trouble because they will follow it up with action pretty quickly. Or probably they are plotting striking first then making a statement. they are perfect chess masters. within hours we could go from attacking libya to defednding ourselves against russia. stop and consider the old saying "an enemies enemy are your friend".. north korea, iran, russia? those three could notice the us is stretched way thin, unaware of the grave danger they are in, and wammo!!! alot can change in 24 hrs.

I just did some research and here in NJ they don't put fluoride in the water, so my sympathies to you.
The only chance for a reset button we have is a revolution, which usually leads to even worse things (perfect example: Libya!)

This whole Libyan situation stinks to high heaven.
At first when we (U.S.) were just advocating him not killing protestors, I was all for it. Now, it just feels like this thing has morphed into something entirely different. It doesn't feel like a protest situation anymore. It feels uncomfortably like the West has manufactured this whole scenario for it's own purposes. Since when does the President have the authority to wage war on another country without Congress' approval? There will be those who say that this is not war but, really, how can a thinking person say that bombing 10s of targets in a foreign country isn't WAR??
