    Gaddafi has around 300 aircraft actually.

    And what the hell? They are bombing military instillations and air defence sites. There have so far been no reports of civilian casualities and reports that do come out of Libya are likely to be exaggerated.
    He's only got 80 but its down to like 20 now that you guys have bombed them mostly. And his aircraft are from the soviet era, can't do much harm compared to the UN and NATO aircraft.

    "Libyan television reported that the air forces of what it called the "crusader enemy" had hit a hospital on the outskirts of Tripoli. Targets in Zuwara, Misrata, Sirte and Benghazi were also hit, it said."

    Thought you supposed to "help and rescue" the Benghazi rebels. Looks like cases of friendly fire. Just what western forces are useful.


    And you realize that this invasion could have further repercussions than you can possibly imagine. There will be terrorist bombs left right center in western countries that supported the military intervention.

    And then the people wonder why Muslims carry out bombings that target countries that have harmed them.

    But they can harm innocent civilians, as he has already demonstrated.

    so the rebels are "innocent civilians" and the pro-Gaddafi forces are "terrorists".

    Laughable to see Western leaders struggling to identify each group of people because they can't seem to call them all "terrorists" because it's not Islam versus the invaders and occupiers.


    Do you believe that Western Military intervention would inflame and increase the frequency of terrorist attacks in the West?

    He's a war criminal, assassinates any opposition, represses freedom of speech, has killed thousands of his own people, etc.

    You would be a fool not to acknowledge the fact that Gadaffi is evil.

    Hmm that applies to other people as well but you don't see the UN and America getting rid of them.

    e.g: Now if America and its allies really cared, they would go after Robert Mugabe and the Chinese Government but they don't.


    Would someone be regarded as a criminal if he sent his soldiers to another country to fight a non existent opposition, bombing innocent civilians, leaving a country in ruins and in civil war, bringing attacks on his own country due to his foreign interventions AND ALL BECAUSE OF OIL??????

    The UN and its allies also operate double standards.
    Why do they not implement a no fly zone over Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Why only Libya?

    Why did Saudi Arabia send 1000 soldiers to Bahrain to quell the protests but organized a no fly zone over Libya?

    Double Standards, that is what it is.
