    NATO drone goes down in Libya - CNN.com

    "One of the homes belongs to Khaled el-Kweldi, a top aide to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, Ibrahim said. He was not home at the time of the attack, but Khaleda el-Kweldi, a 6-year-old girl, was killed, along with Khalid el-Kweldi, a 4-year-old boy, the spokesman said. Another 6-year-old, Salam Lanouri, was also killed, according to Ibrahim."

    You have NATO bombing and killing Lybian civilians with reckless abandon while American Troops are brought up on charges for murder if a civilian is killed in Afghanistan in a crossfire. At least give the American Troops the benefit of the doubt if you sanction NATO killing of civilians.

    China makes oil deal with rebels?

    I think we should let China take the lead in securing ME and troubled oil. They have a vested interest in keeping the price of oil affordable as well as we do.

    China..and most of the world have a different way of doing things. Reprehensible as it sounds they make the right bribes to grease the wheels.

    The US has a more ham fisted way of doing things. But heck, it keeps that ol' industrial military complex a' rollin'.
