    Shouldn't a countries valuable resources belong to every citizen in the country where it's found instead of just a few people who can never explain how they gained rightful ownership of them?

    One would think but rarely the case, since that would be socialism.

      Maybe a mixture of socialism wouldn't be so bad in countries where a very small fraction of the entire population enjoy astronomical wealth while the majority sink in a quicksand of poverty and no-way-out hopelessness. After all most of Europe's wealthiest countries successfully mix democracy with socialism.

    Why haven't we established a no fly zone over Libya yet? Surely this is a sensible thing to do given the huge air resources in the Mediteranean and the fact that Gadafi is now using planes to bomb his own people?!

    "After all most of Europe's wealthiest countries successfully mix democracy with socialism." I agree. Unfortunately there are a certain bunch of very powerful people who are not much into sharing.

    Well last time I knew I have no piece of the pie of any natural resource in America either.  Welcome to Capitalism where a select few benefit from money and natural resources.  EVERY country does this.
