    way past egypt in brutality. is president obama holding back because we still have six hundred in libya.
    gadafi has expressed his desire for "suicide by martyrdom"
    i think that's a great idea.
    should we interviene if he starts blowing up wells , can we say that's a world effecting environmental concern ?

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Without doubt that would be the dumbest reponse we could possibly make.

    Here's a thought...send in some multinational ARAB forces in that event.

    the last thing this nation needs is another Islamic nation occupation fiasco.

    Actually, if they were hired before they went to Libya they did not go there on their own dime, the ticket would be purchased by the company. I was looking for contractor jobs in the Middle East and you don't pay for your initial ticket to the country.

    If there is an American embassy in the country, gather the Americans there and fly them out. Similar things have been done in Lebanon in 2006 when Hezbollah fought the Israelis and even during the uprising in Egypt, every Embassy has procedures to get their people out in case of an emergency, nothing new.
