I heard a good point brought up. the UN and NATO are freaking out about getting rid of Gaddafi because of human rights but NOT ONE airstrike in Darfur. Why? NO OIL.

OMG, you're right. Why is Congress not screaming bloody murder? (oh what a horrible, accidental pun.) Who re-wrote the definition of fundamental acts which constitute war against another? Whoever wrote this story, it's playing out like a stupid, predictable B movie. Only, it's real. (At least they tell us it is. Who knows... )
Well, who knows anything really, except what we're privy to.
But you're right, in my opinion. He is sending people to a battle. To say it's 'reinforcing a no-fly zone' is semantics-- simple word play-- when it still results in soldiers dropping bombs out of fighter jets. The UN gave its blessing. Did our Congress?
ARTICLE 1, SECTION 8
The Congress shall have Power:
To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

Who agrees with me that the West is doing nothing but occupying countries all around the globe, triggering false revolutions and civil wars and arming both sides while sneakily stealing their natural resources, false flag trigger to go to war, human rights violations, international law violations, human genocide, depopulation, prohibited weapon testing, and next is Libya, syria, jordan, iran. Africa is already fallen in civil war funded by the West, mid-east is their next target and now they are being really successful, they already grabbed eastern europe, south asia, east asia, almost everything but russia and china
its a modern crusade in disguise of "doing good"

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??
