    You know we're rudderless when the Clintons have to serve as the Jiminy Cricket-like conscience on Obama's shoulder prodding him.

    The only thing the Libyian people hate more than Kadafi is the USA.

    Helping to take Kadafi out will not make them like us.

    Yeah, you could be right. I read something this morning that said the US military found that Libya was the source of high numbers of foreign fighters in Iraq...and most of them came from the villages/cities that are at the center of resistance to Khadafi. As you said earlier...perhaps it's better to have the enemy you know?

    Always better to deal with the devil you know than the one you don't.

    After Pres. Reagan reprimanded Gadafi after he bombed the Disco in Germany killing some Americans, Gadafi stopped openly supporting terror against the USA. More recently, he ended his nuke ambitions.

    We help overthrow Gadafi and no telling how much of a terrorist nation they will become. Then what, will we have to act alone or with the Brits?

    And not a shot was fired or a dime spent by the United States military.

    Libya declared a cease-fire Friday and promised to stop all military operations in a bid to fend off international military intervention after the United Nations authorized a no-fly zone and "all necessary measures" to prevent the regime from striking its own people.
    Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa said the decision would "take the country back to safety" and ensure security for all Libyans.
    "We decided on an immediate cease-fire and on an immediate stop to all military operations," he told reporters.
    "(Libya) takes great interest in protecting civilians," he said, adding that the country would also protect all foreigners and foreign assets in Libya.
