    This source is from CNN - which is a pretty major news channel.

    Over the past few decades, there have been some very real genocides happening all over Africa, but the U.S. never seemed to care about any of those.
    But now the mainstream media has been trying really hard to spin the civil war in Libya into a “great humanitarian crisis”.

    Of course Scheuer was exactly right. We never should have gotten involved in the civil war in Libya. It was none of our business. When the rebels picked up arms and started shooting at government forces, they should not have been surprised when Gadhafi’s forces started shooting back.

    HAHA, I was right from my previous thread that the Libyan Intervention is WRONG, was planned WAY BEFORE and Qaddafi is just being used as a mere SCAPEGOAT
    And you thought we "conspiracy nuts" were a bunch of retards :rolleyes:

    Well firstly Lets not forget Gadaffi started shooting unarmed protesters first.

    I shall edit this after I watch the video.

    Whats he saying really? Don't arm the rebels because there may be elements of Al Qaeda in the rebels?

    Ok thats fair enough. But most intelligence right now seems to say that most of the rebels are not Al Qaeda and there are only "flickers".

    I don't agree with the oil comment. There is no proof of this.

    But I agree with the boots on the ground part. There is always a fear that states will rather put in troops in the country rather than admit to be wrong.

    He did send that interviewer running though haha.

    You weren't right, or at least, we don't know if you were right.

    He makes some good points, but what one guy says proves NOTHING, he could be a 'conspiracy nut' too for all I know. He has no evidence of anything, it's just his opinion. He has some interesting opinions, but where facts are concerned, opinions count for nothing.

    what?
    If he is so clever (as all conspiracy theorists are of course, more clever than the proles who don't realise how the world is controlled by this NWO of lizards anyway) then why didn't he change his username and risk getting told off for having a duplicate account?

    even if you change your name you still can get found out. Happened to me when I got banned.

    If he's using the same name, he's an idiot.

    Also this guy is a complete pleb who can't form a logical argument, probably just butthurt because he got fired from the CIA.

    I don't see how this source supports your argument anyway. His main argument isn't that intervention is morally wrong, but that it is not profitable for the US.

    Libya Intervention planned 'way before'? Of course they've planned it. The Military have plans for just about every eventuality, the United States has up to date plans on what to do in case of an invasion by the Canada, plans for how to invade the United Kingdom, plans to overthrow China, plans to conquer Australia, plans to subdue Mexico. If they don't have at least ten to twenty plans on how to deal with Libya and agents everywhere I'd be shocked at their lack of preparation.

    I'm probably the wrong person to ask, I read the news but I'm not 100% clued up on the whole situation, I doubt anyone is though anyway. Why do you ask me?

    Actually I predicted this in 1986 when I was about your age and knew about as much about it.

    In time I shall post carefully selected links with various dingbats to prove how right I was all along.

    I just liked how he got under the skin of those two bimbos. These are the people reporting our news? They didn't want to argue rather dismiss him with their comments. The comment about Rice was taken personally by the blonde. She was very annoyed. Can you imagine how presenters like this filter the news? We have Paxman, who you can all hate, but he plays devils advocate well. The equivalent of them two idiot is that ***** on Sky, Kay Burley.

    As for the ex-CIA man himself, he makes some good points but no coherrent argument other than that "we should serve US interests". Except that is what the US does and tramples over other nations at any cost. So I can't say I agree with him. He called other Arab nations tyrannical (which they are) but didn't exactly object, factor in that he worked for the CIA so was complicit, I don't exactly trust him.
