Typical West, nothing in it for them so they just turn around and say they're "thinking about it"... They don't give two ****s about human rights aslong as they can still go and cuddle up to Gaddafi for some of his oil. The rebels stand no chance against the Army, its going to be a massacre and many innocent people will die, Gaddafi will reagin power and it'll all be over. Sickening!
Haha i'm so angry. No doubt they'll do nothing about Bahrain aswell, just claim the "Rebels" (Freedom Fighters) are supporters of The Muslim Brotherhood, of which the absolute majority are not.
What do you want them to do? they cant go sticking their nose into everything can they? if a country doesn't serve the wests interests chances are they arent willing to get their hands dirty. It's simply a case of "if you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours"
Like, the only reason why America and Israel are such good partners is because theres American-Israeli politicians in congress who speed up several bills to help them. I.E military aid, and cooperation etc. It's interesting to note, that they gain a lot of sympathy because they've adopted some of the same stances that the U.S has, I.E no tolerance on "terrorism" flexing of military muscle etc etc, its all about adopting the same policies to get another country on your side.
Countries like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt and Turkey are their allies. Thats enough influence in the middle east and North Africa for them.
and by the West I am mainly referring to America and the UK I probably should have been more specific
The rebels arent going to win anything, the militaries easily pushing them back. They've just got the technological edge, its near enough impossible for this 'revolution' to fully occur without any outside help.
Let's try pushing for this no fly-zone ASAP, if Gaddafi doesnt comply then just do what happened in the Kosovo conflict. Make a united battallion consisting of Nato forces i.e The U.S, Spain, Turkey, Denmark, Greece, Italy etc and clean it up. Instead of threatening attacks on countries like Iran and North Korea, do something useful with your overbloated military budgets
I'd say that the Arab League should be involved, but their too incompetent to do anything. If anybodies going to intervene, let it actually be a military organisation thats carried out successful operations in the past. Plus Saudi Arabias already helped Bahrain the other day they sent out a convey of 100 armed trucks to quell protests by Shia demonstrators, Egypt has its own problems, as does Tunisia, Iran etc... such calls for 'revolution' are only going to encourage these countries populations to start similar social movements.
