    The Obama administration and some european leaders have expressed their willingness to intervene in the political battle between pro-government and anti-govenment in Libya. Do you think this will bring peace in the country?

      Well, isn't it nice of them to "express willingness" at the very moment those struggling to win their freedom are being slaughtered? This crap didn't start yesterday. Unarmed and untrained resistance is being systematically eliminated while hypocrites who supposedly support democracy sit around with their thumbs up their asses.

      This is a no win situation for the USA. We will be better off staying out of it... muslims killing muslims is not OUR problem.

    Let the UN handle it and keep our boys out of it. We pay for the UN anyway. Might as well use it. We shouldnt be so eager to put boots on the ground. Occcupy another middleast country? I think everybody knows how well that would go over.

      Do you really think the U-freakin-N is capable of 'handling' anything? What are they gonna do, send in some blue helmets to be killed, shuffle papers, spread cholera, or rape the local women? Not an option.

        Personally I prefer it to more American boys being killed because we are worried about who controls the oil.

          There's more at stake than just that.

    I really hope they enforce a no-fly zone. Uk and France will push for the EU to unilaterally agree to it today in principle. Unfortunately they will then wait for the UN to agree it; which is the same as saying "it wont happen".

    Can we please stop assuming that "foreign intervention" means just US intervention. European countries hold far more resources in the Med, are more directly affected and will probably shoulder at least as much of the responsibility - Particularly between France, UK and Italy.
