    He needs to show his support for the protesters and tell this guy to go. Enough of the silence!

    Yeah that's all he's waiting for, the signal from his "bro" Obama to hit the exits.

    Yep.

    Since he is not an ally, it would not do much good

    Maybe if Scotland told him to go

    True, it would be a good gesture to the protestors but on the other hand he would be wary of the time that the USA encouraged the Kurds to rise against Saddam only to abandon them and see them viciously suppressed.
    Gaddafi is just as capable as Saddam.

    WTF?!?!???

    I don't even know where to start.

    If it were GEORGE BOOOOOOSH! in the White House, we'd have partisan hack crackpots like you complaining (rightly) about pushing around little countries like Libya and imperialism.

    But now, since the dope residing at 1600 Pennsylvania happens to have that (D) next to his name, he needs to assert his authouritahhh and tell other nations how to run their internal political affairs.

    Just shoot me now.

    Gaddafi is looking for an excuse to squash the protests. Obama openly supporting them would give him that excuse

    How about just giving them "moral support" this time? If the citizens want to oust their leader, let em have at it while we watch on the sidelines.
