    Great reporting. Here's my thoughts – I lived in the Middle East for 24 years. I can't recall seeing an Arab nation reach out to help another Arab nation. So, I think you should be asking viewers what they think of the idea that the GCC states [okay, excluding Oman and Bahrain, who are in turmoil at this juncture], and the Arab League send troops, planes, and humanitarian aid to its brethren. Abu Dhabi has $875b in its sovereign wealth fund. The same is true for Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi. The USA has been blamed for war mongering and external interference ever since President Allande of Chile was assassinated in 1956. Nor does the USA have any money now. Look, our own backyard is in tatters. Please talk about the Arab nations condemning the Gaddhafi, and taking care of their brothers.
