    wait until terror attacks happen more now since we (US) stepped in and was the big bully. I am sure china, russia, soem other countries have some good airpower to do harm, WHY US every time. it just makes them all hate us. now when we accidently kill a civilian, we are the devil to all involved.

    I don't think anyone is calling us a bully. This operation has pretty broad support throughout the Middle East and shouldn't be confused with our occupation of Iraq or Afghanistan.

Just like Bahrain. Welcome the 4.00 a gallon oil price.
    Because Bahrain isn't using fighter jets to attack their own civilians. I'm not sure you've been following Libya closely...

    Kucinich says it could be an impeachable offense.

    Not so fast. http://www.france24.com/en/20110321-...it-ranks-again

    I'm not sure anyone any where is positive on their stance of Libya. Seems like everyone changes their minds from day to day.

    Russia and China were both against the strikes.

    Imagine that. Russian Prime Minister and all-around completely-scary former-KGB plutocrat Vladimir Putin told reporters yesterday that the strikes were akin to the Western crusades of the middle ages. Russia isn't entirely concerned with whether a civil war breaks out or not, but they're going to be obstructionist because it's what they do.

    Someone else told you the facts about Bahrain so I won't touch on that. $4.00 a gallon is coming this summer no matter what! But, in the past few days prices around me is going down! People see the no-fly zone as a message that the area will be some what stable.
