Allied forces attack Libya – WW3?

Us and Company are calling themselves Allied Forces these days and have now attacked Cuba, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen Libya. Yep. For sure. They have attacked Libya. Funny. I always remember the world wars when I think of Allied forces - and the Axis of evil of course.

For a force committed to peacekeeping, they sure start a lot of wars. Worse, they know how to enter a war, they rarely have an exit plan. I fully expect Libya to become another Afghanistan, simply because these guys don't know how to stop. Parking lot, while mercenaries and ammunition factories eat up the American tax money.

Okay, Ghadafi is evil. He is killing his citizens. Sure. Someone remind me how many times Allied forces freed those people dying in Sudan? Or are those not humans or deserving of liberty? Incredible how some countries are more equal than others.

I am nor disappointed in this, simply because it was pretty much guaranteed that US and Company would be striking somewhere or the other. I fail to see how they are going to use fighter planes and cruise missiles and distinguish between people on the ground? Anyone taking bets on when their joint forces enter Libya on the ground?

How does it help the Libyans to have their country bombed?

I am not supporting dictatorship, or attacks on civilians by their own governments. However, it is far more worrying than even Al Qaeda that the mightiest power in the world has one solution for all ills - war. Libya is a piddly little mark on the map. I'd bet that a vast majority of people in the world have never heard of the place. On the other hand, America is the most powerful country in the world currently, even if it is now diminishing out of its own folly. We have been seeing how they have flaunted laws and norms in countries around the world, the UN itself. What is their moral authority to do these things?

The only two good things I can think of right now are that thank goodness Japan's nuclear crisis would have become worse if bombed and thank goodness India, Russia and China have the good sense to condemn this attack.

As for India, this just goes to show that when they are not obsessed with fleecing the country and vote bank power plays, they do have a functioning moral compass.

    That is the media line. America has no problems seeing dictators slaughter civilians. It has unquestioningly sponsored Pakistan in spite of three massacres by its Army. The ones in Bangladesh and Balochistan were its own citizens. The one in Afghanistan also had its Army officially posted with the Talibans. Hindus were virtually wiped out from Kashmir through militancy directly sponsored by the Army. For that matter, it is directly the constant wars and Army fueled paranoia that has led to a Pakistani doctor diagnosing the entire country as suffering from schizophrenia (that is, the ones still alive). US had no problems with the Sri Lankan genocide. Sudan has people dying left, right and center. Or are only Libyans ruled by an insane dictator?

    How does one quell a civil war with cruise missiles?

    The people of Benghazai have also declared Jihad against the country. Crazy dictator's son claims they are Al Qaeda. How do planes verify whom they are supporting?

    It is plain wrong to invade country after country as though there is no solution other than war.

    But I guess time will see us through. Its only a matter of time before we see if once Libya's air power is destroyed, if US and Co go back home, or put boots on the ground.

    What moral compass are you talking about ? India has no moral compass..India claims to be a super power in the making, they aspire to a permanent seat in the security council, but they have no guts to take a decision when a call for action comes..India's decision was definitely not based on moral compass..If it was they would have jumped in along with U.S, U.K, France to stave of a dictator going to massacre his citizens..Did you watch Gaddafi's interviews??.He's a lunatic..There are times when leaders should act...France was not part of the Iraq war.They opposed and stayed out of it. In this case they joined. This effort is also supported by the Arab League. This effort is also supported by the people of Benghazi..What more proof does any one need to act.. India has no leadership qualities and no guts to stand for what's right. Its leaders are minions with no backbone. You see it in domestic affairs (tolerating and making excuses for corruption) and you can expect the same behavior in international affairs.
