    Where do you get your info from?
    From sources as neutral as possible and as close to the conflict as possible. At the moment Libyan health officials have said the death toll from UN air strikes stands at 63.

    Well by your own logic you can't know that they aren't the majority of the people. BTW, are you dumb? Because British forces pulled out of Iraq ages ago.... Also we aren't going to send ground troops to any of these countries, the UN didn't clear that and there is no political support for it.

    China, Russia and Germany didn't take part, so what? They don't have to intervene if they don't want to, they may feel like they are undermining the credibility of the revolution, which is a perfectly valid excuse.
    Ha I meant Afghanistan, calm down. People on here get so excited.
    My point is still that they do not represent the Libyan people; everybody has seen some of the protesters supporting Gaddafi. Just because they have the Arab League's backing, which again does not represent Libyans, doesn't mean they have the right to start bombing the country and consequently killing some of the innocent civilians they went in to protect.
    I doubt that none of the countries involved will send in ground troops, it will happen eventually.

    Do you not see it as completely foolish to be supporting these 'rebels' when we have absolutely no idea who the hell they are, or what they represent?
    They are people asking to be able to choose their own leader through democracy after being ruled by a slightly crazy man for the last 42 years. I think that's worthy of my support.

    Yea, but they know what they are doing when it comes to sanctioning a middle-eastern country.

    No one point of view ever represents what an entire nation of people think. The rebels represent THE MAJORITY of the populations views. The UN has expressly forbidden ground troops from being deployed, so it's not gonna happen.

    am not very sure about that.......they are more ant gaddafi than pro democracy to be honest......somehow am not comfortable with the channels using pro democracy (that doesnt mean there are no ppl wanting democracy....yes there are).....but considering the ppl.....the culture and the ground realities.......the common binding factor has more been anti something....rather than a lucid pro something

    Ha! Didn't the UN try and stop the UK and USA from going into war with Iraq?
    Look what happened there.
    The UN isn't exactly the most trustworthy organisation anyway, plenty of dodgy things they've done in the past.

    You are an idiot. You think the West gives a s.hit about innocent lives. What about Yemen and Bahrain, innocent people are being killed there? Why aren't the West interfering? They're just doing it for their selfish needs you cretin. Learn to think for yourself instead of recycling the crap you hear.
    Oh wow your ad hominems give so much substance to your view :rolleyes:
    They could be doing it for the good of mankind of for the mystical space jelly, either way they will save civilian lives. How is this a bad thing? Clearly you haven't thought about this for more then a second and instead knee jerked at the words "military", "war" and "oil".

    Well as far as I'm concerned Anti-Gaddafi is a good point of view. Just out of interest, what's with all the "..." in your post?

    mayb yes......but even to impose sanctions u need money.......and they can ill afford to ignore their depleting coffers.....or mayb its precisely the reason why they are there........i can only hope its for a humanitarian cause rather than economic.....but then past history has told us otherwise
