    Our elected officials are more concerned with the almighty dollar than our lives. This situation in Libya will be a black mark on all the free world if more innocent people are murdered before action is taken. Look how long we waited for help after Katrina. How quick we forget. I'll never forget the words of that brave woman who is waiting in fear, but so brave just wanting to be free from a ruthless dictator.

    Anderson – I heard you say last night that people have complained about your focus on the Middle East and Northern Africa, because other things are happening in the world and at home. I disagree. I want to hear more. I want all the details and all the updates. This is VERY important. Keep up your great work. Also, keep us posted on Egypt and other countries besides Libya. Thank you.

    Dear Anderson

    Currently I am watching your show about the Libyan uprising.
    Regarding President Obama's disappointing response; I remind them and everyone else that it is a known opinion about the US foreign policy. The US foreign policy actually help radicalize moderate muslim people by such diappointing responses to such critical events in their lives. When the US doesn't take an effective stand when it's needed and instead show its conceren about scarecrows (Al-Qaida etc). I can see the making of a new radical nation by such stupid foreign policy.

    The US should take the initiative and effectively call for sending in UN troops to protect innocent demonstartors from genocide which is a crime against humanity. If the US doesn't effectively step in now then don't be surprised if the US interests in Libya, Morroco, Bahrain and Yaman etc will be negatively targetd and the US will be once again appears a hypocritical in talking about freedom & democracy and support dictators around the world.

    There is an ongoing discussion by some people to completely burn this evil oil in order to live free from the hypocrisy of the Western world.
    Please, please Anderson I beg you in the name of humanity and the values of democracy that America stands the leader for them convey the following paragraph or all my message to President Barak Obama; thank you:

    So please President Barak Obama do not stand idle and watch genocide committed in your time as a president. Please do not alienate the libyan people and turn them against the US and the West. You can't blame them for that if you don't help them now. there is a systematic killing against armless citizen in Tripoli at this minute. Please intervene or send UN peace keeping forces to protect peaceful demonstrators and openly support what the people call for. President Obama don't let the history record your stand negatively; didn't you learn from Rawanda or Bosnia etc. Thank you Mr. President and I hope you will not let down the call of freedom, democracy and justice.

    Thank you Mr Cooper and the 360 team for allowing us express our opinion

    Another way developed countries can help developing countries is by refusing to give aide to any country, which is not practicing practical democracy. One person can’t be the president for almost 30 years in a democratic country.

    I'm proud of the good job CNN is doing in the strike areas. But i think they are forgetting Africa, there is strike in Cameroon, Congo etc. We need America's help to put down the Dictator in Cameroon; he's been in power for almost 30 years and plan to be the president for life. There is a lot of suffering in Cameroon while government official continue to still siphoned money to Switzerland Banks. There will be probably be a strike in Cameroon on the 1st of March 2011; please we wish CNN talk about it.

    I am a Libyan student at the US. I am living the worst days in my life ever, nowadays. I am too scared of losing my family in this massacre and worries are killing me about my country. On top of that we- The Libyan students here- do not know if our scholarship and allowance will still be given to us or not. We receive warnings from the embassy to either demonstrate in the favor of Gaddafi or else. Why is it the case with us- Libyan people- to live all our lives under oppression?We paid enough for the change. We lived 42 years of fear and humiliation and now we are losing hundreds of our people for the change which does not seem to be happening quickly. All we need from the world is a real stand with us to get back our freedom, respect, justice and dignity. Our main problem now is the headquarter ( alqiyada) that Gaddafi lives in now. It represents a central location to control all the finance, media, broadcasting, weapons and the attack. Gaddafi will resist there for a long time attacking his people , giving orders to the mercenary and his followers to kill Libyans in the streets, depriving the Libyans from food and money and chasing anyone raising a word against him.
    It seems that these big countries and organizations can not be modest enough to feel those people who are not of benefit to them and who represent no threatening to Israel. Why care then?

    Thank you again Anderson for bringing this story, and others concerning the Middle East to the forefront. People who complain that you are focusing too much on these stories don't realize this is history being made and the risk these people take to get the story out. So many dead and others living in fear for wanting what we all take for granted every day, freedom.

    To hear the voice and perspective of someone in the middle of this tragic state is really unsettling. I feel for our president because these various uprisings are putting him in a very precarious situation. I do think that we need to, along with other countries put more effort into helping the people of Libya. I have so much respect for YOU Anderson for not turning away from this, you are a light for the people in Egypt and Libya...and a light for us here in America.
