Do you support this action although it may result in U.S. involvement in a third war? Are the humanitarian considerations sufficient to justify this action?
Sometimes you have a choice between bad and worse and the unpleasant task is figuring out which is less ugly. Ghadafi is a terrorist, and he has huge reserves of oil. That's not a good scenario.
The timing is lousy but it is what it is. Europe has shown interest in shouldering the load. If the regime is toppled and an elected government takes control of the wealth to benefit the people and not harbor terrorism, that's a good deal. The question is - can we shape that outcome without a huge investment of ground troops and cash?
Beg to differ my friend. The only two terrorist countries in the middle east not including the Palestinians of course are the two that are not controlled by the big oil companies, namely Iran and Libya. If they go into Libya it is for the oil. Their only consideration is, will it increase the uprisings already going on, such that they could lose control of what they already control like Bahrain. But according to
