  •  War lust? really? (0+ / 0-)

    I think you are making assumptions here. Just a little bit....

    I am saying... if things work out well, which we are a far way from knowing that.

    This will save thousands of innocent lives in the short run and MANY more in the long run if we do not have to deal with the current Libyan regime

    Also it seems to me you either think that soldiers fighting for Moammar Gadhafi  and innocent civilians that were being indiscriminately shelled in towns by Moammar Gadhafi's forces is no difference... I just dont agree there

    •  I can see that we don't agree... (5+ / 0-)

      I can see that you are convinced that war is the answer...because dropping bombs is war.

      What with bombs being so precise, I'm SURE no women and children will be blown to pieces...really, I'm sure.

      And here you are...promoting an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth...both of which can be found on any battlefield.

      Mark my words...however this ends up, you and your children or grandchildren will be fighting the relatives of those we will be killing in the Middle East.

      •  thats just really an inaccurate statement about (0+ / 0-)

        what I think.

        But sure keep making inaccurate generalizations about what I think or believe that's fine

          isn't it...Maybe you have not really thought out your viewpoint or realized the firm ground upon which you stand...take a minute...we actually need thinking citizens in this country...not ones who can be manipulated by rhetoric and blood lust.

          •  I havent backed off one word (0+ / 0-)

            I just dont agree with your over broad general statements that try and pigeon hole people into things that they never said.

            All I have said from day 1 is this could end very positively for the people of Libya. Many lives could be saved by this operation. Yes Many Lybian lives. Will some innocent people die? Yes, they will but a lot less innocent people will die if this operation goes well than if Ghaddafi had gotten his way to mow down these people and indiscriminately shell this towns. Thats my point of view on it.

            If that meets your definition of war lust then to me its quite warped and wrong

            •  I REALLY think you need to volunteer (0+ / 0-)

              to go to Libya and sort this all out...they need you.

              •  you still do not address anything I say (0+ / 0-)

                you just do short little phrases that do not say or do anything.

                And I would love to volunteer to go to Lybia. I have been there a couple times already. Well only to Tripoli. But I bet its more than you have been to the region...
