    I have supported all military actions involving the U.S.A. But, I have a problem with this one in Libiya. what business is this of ours? Who will be taking control? And, are they going to be better? I have not been a supporter of Khadaffi, But thi9ngs have been reasonably stable over in that area lately... Now what?
    If we are there for humanitarian reasons, and keeping him from killing his own countrymen, who are killing his military. Than why are we doing this suddenly? Where were we when Stalin murdered millions of Russians. Or, the many crazy dictators and rebels in several African country... Instead of getting out of 2 wars, we are now in 3. And, if this is not a war, what is it? Police Action? Conflict? whatever you call it. We are bombing and fighting the military of another country... That is war. Not authorized by Congress.
    When we haqd a Civil War, and killing our own citizens fight the north. Did other countries tell Pres. Lincoln to leave and stop killing Confederate soldiers? If we are not trying to kill Khadaffi, why are we bombing his house?

    25 years ago I was attacted to the Strike Force that bombed Lybia. They to said that we were killing the people of that country that had no involvment with the leader. Well guess what? We didnt kill them their own military did. See we flew jammer planes in ahead of the bomber to jam the SAM Sites. When they shot at our planes the missles went up and came right back down on the town folk. Dont blame the US and other Forces for we only did what we had to do to protect and complete our mission. If you dont shot missles at our planes the same missles wont come back to haunt you.

    With all the debates people are having over Libya I think it would only be fair to have an in depth look into the leadership that hass been Gaddafi. I don't know how much accurate history we have of how he has remained in power. I just think the best thing we as Americans can do is learn about who he is and what he has done. Some pople here are under the impression that Gadaffi is elected by his people and not winning through fear.
