    Are they all good guys? Are we all good guys? All members of the United States are good guys? No one with deranged illnesses? No terrorists, home grown or otherwise? No society is without a few problems. Compared to what? To Whom? We must have the future for another country planned before we go in to assist? They must develop their own government, over time. Mistakes will be made along the way, just as it took a few generations to shape and mold our constitution.

    No wonder Gadhafi or his followers are not weakening. They expect us to give up. This could be a chance to overcome terrorism by encouraging Democracy. This could be a tiny step on the path to world peace.

    How could we possibly protect the civilions of Libya without ending Gadhafi's murderous regime. Gadhafi has promised to go door to door getting retribution for his "people's disloyalty". I'm afraid all this televised nay saying weakens America in the eyes of our enemies who are listening to every word and worse it discourages the youth of the Middle East who are trying to decide if Democracy is the way to go or not. No wonder Gadhafi or his followers are not weakening. They expect us to give up. This could be a chance to overcome terrorism by encouraging Democracy. This could be a tiny step on the path to world peace.

    This is so horrible. My heart goes out to all the Libyan people. My thoughts and prayers are with them all. Keep up the great reporting Anderson Cooper and CNN!

    Hi Anderson:It looks like the National Security Council and the Arab league will have to go back to the table again and make some drastic changes to the resolutions. To protect a few of Khadafi's supporters who are just as horrible as him, who he uses as Human Shields; the rest of the Libyans can not be sacrificed or left in the hands of this brutal dictator. We already know what his offspring is like. They will continue their father's legacy. He has to be removed, dead or alive. Thank you & CNN for keeping us informed.

    My child is in the Army and they don't know if they are getting paid on the first because the government is "broke". It seems that paying our military personnel should be a priority, but that's just me!
