You have no point, the only point your trying to make is that iam wrong and you are right.
Im assuming you know before all this libya business, Gaddafi was attempting to move Africa to a gold based currency & was to stop trading oil in dollars, Just like Saddam before we went all out on Iraq. Theres really no more too it, hes not bowing down to western oppression & hes genuinely trying to improve Africa, but they cant let that happen.
So, let the Propaganda war begin, Russia today may be the MSM for Russia & yes generally it does make the West look bad, thats because generally it tells the truth on matters involving the West and Criminal activity. If you are just going to brand RT as propaganda just because its Russian, then i cant think of any other way to brand that except as racist.

Bottom line is - you can't do a "precision strike" with the explosive ordinance, imagine striking the ammunition depot, what would happened, yes it will be destroyed, but all the explosives which are stored there will explode too, and shrapnel will fly for miles in every direction, taking out the innocent people, who just happened to be in a proximity.

Saudi Arabia is suppressing human rights at factory pace but we do not bomb them. Why?

And that's what happens when you put a legit military target next to civilians, which seems to be the most popular thing to do in the Middle East. Saddam did it in Iraq, and Gaddafi is doing the same thing.
No one seems to notice he's lifting a page from Saddam's playbook. Scream about civilian deaths and everyone will flock to your side to condemn the infidel.
Sure, he's killing rebels. And their wives, children, grandparents......

I'm sure there's not many people expecting Gaddafi to be inducted to sdainthood anytime soon, but on the basis of shear scale of threat - I'd wager that he's the lesser of two evils in this conflict.
I dare say there are men with shrouded affiliations whispering in the ears of all the 'leaders' of the nations concerned, dealing in lies and half-truths; pandering to the pride and greed of the status-seeking politicians and businessmen; customising the declared suggestion for conflict depending on the audience, when in reality the real reason for war is probably just...well...war. Good old-fashioned organised mass-murder - it's nothing more sinister than that.edit on 23-6-2011 by Robert Reynolds because: a comma and an 'it's'.
