Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Monday a U.N. resolution authorizing military action in Libya resembled "mediaeval calls for crusades" after Western forces launched a second wave of air strikes.
China's official newspapers on Monday stepped up Beijing's opposition to air attacks on Libya, accusing nations backing the strikes of breaking international rules and courting new turmoil in the Middle East. China also did not veto the U.N. resolution.

Putin should know better
GORKI, Russia, March 21 (Reuters) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday said the use of the term crusades to refer to the situation in Libya was "unacceptable".
Medvedev spoke just hours after Prime Minister Vladimir Putin likened the United Nations Security Council resolution authorising military intervention in Libya to "medieval calls for crusades".
Medvedev said Russia would not participate in any military coalition in Libya but was ready to take part in peacekeeping operations.

It is a crusade all right.
Putin got it right for sure.
But it aint no religious crusade.
It is a crusade by humanity against domination!
For too long, mankind had turn a blind eye to the sufferings of others. For too long mankind had been apathetic.
But not today. Not after what had happened in Libya.
Mankind now know which side of humanity do their leaders stand on. And they will face their crusade by their own people.
I am insignificant and a nobody. But there are millions like me around the world, talking and reacting in every lingo to their own fellow man. We are the grassroots activists. We build the crusade from ground up, touching every life to let them consider and act on their own free will after discussion and debates.
We are not limited by the internet or any social media. Cut off the internet, cut off the phones, deny personal contacts and see how it will ruin economies! The only way to stop us is to murder us all as Gaddafi tried to do to his own people, or lock us all up and see what happens next!
Russia, China, Brazil, Venuezela, Arab states, Asian states, African states, etc will NOT be spared, after what they had done and acted in collusion supporting a mad mass murderer and stopping help to our fellow Libyan brothers and sisters seeking freedom.
We are the grassroots on every level. We are everywhere. We are Annonymous...and WE ARE LEGION!

Well, Russia and China in a knock down drag out with the West. Which ones technology will be best? Will it come down to attrition by shear numbers? Buy plenty of campfire popcorn.
