“The world no longer needs NATO!” he said. “The Second World War was over a long time ago, and we try to live our lives, while NATO always do wars and always intervene in other countries’ issues. We are tired of wars, our patience is running out. Let us just live our life.”
Is NATO still relevant?
Great you speak from experience...Well then how can you be so IGNORANT and insensitive towards and about it?
I am speaking because you think that just because you know people that have taken thier own lives, that you know FOR A FACT that people who fail at it are just seeking attention.
You think you have EVERBODY figured out and you know EXACTLY what those people are thinking, what they are experiencing in life to make them consider suicide and most importantly thier TRUE INTENTIONS.
I feel pretty strongly about the suicide issue. I do believe that some people seek attention. They just want to be heard. .........Maybe attention whore was the wrong term to use....Too frank and without emotion. I apologize for this....My mother brought me up not to, "beat around the bush," and tell it like it is. I do realize that my tone is offensive sometimes. That is how Lj01 operates and I am working on it.

This has been one of the funniest threads ive read in a long time. As for the story, yeah its bunk, but still pretty funny. If every kid who ever got scared tried to kill themselves we'd be extinct allready. This girl just has a mental illness, like most suicides that fail shes craving attention. If she really wanted to die she would run towards the bombs.
What about people who don't fail a suicide attempt lokdog? Are they looking for attention?
It has a lot to do with the News, what is the purpose of NATO? Why is NATO attacking Libya? (We have established that it is not Humanitarian reasons), so why is NATO attacking Libya, and what is NATO's purpose?
Also it's not very cool to echo back about flattery, when someones used it against you. It makes you look like you can't think for yourself and be original.

Why can America/NATO end a war then? Becuase....
- It costs billions of dollars putting a strain on their own finances
- It kills inoccent people
- It de-stabalizes a region
- It creates a condition that breeds terrorism(remember we are fighting a war on terror)
- It may force the countries to further commit sending ground forces (remember there are already Special forces operating in Libya)
- It will lead to deaths of soldiers
If this girl isn't a reason to stop a war these are.

Propaganda or not...Isn't that statment true?
Aren't they sending out the right message?
You don't see Russia getting involved in other countries affairs, and bombarding them with missiles...I think they have a right to express thier concerns about the conflicts that are being created, where's the propaganda there?
So I would trust thier words and reports over NATOS, 8 days a week.

I don't know anything as a fact in this case. But my experience has shown me when people want to kill themselves they get the job done.
I also know that attempted suicide especially among teenagers is often a cry for help. Call it a hormonal imbalance if you will.
The way this news has been presented is blatent propoganda, if theres a suicidal girl in Tripoli afraid of NATO airstrikes. Then surely theres also one in Mistrata that is afraid of Gadaffi's artillery fire. Why hasn't RT news covered that side of the story?
