We have no right to interfere in a civil war.

Look, say what you will about Kaddafi. The US and its' allies has absolutely NO RIGHT to get involved in a civil war, even WITH "U.N. Authorization".

I heard an interview of an American official on AlJazeera that he said that the US cannot change every government no matter what the situation is, that was a BOLD FACED LIE! If the uprising in a Arab country which is oil-rich, it would interfere. Why can't the UN put a no-fly zone in Egypt, Tunsia or for that matter, Gaza? Why Libya of all nations, because it has oil? Not because a "brutal dictator" killed his own people? Remember when Hosnhi Mubarak slaughtered 300 protesters through his police, the US has done diddly squat to overthrow that moron!

Did the US learn its' lesson from Vietnam that it's not right to intervene in someone else's civil war? And look what happened. And besides, Libya, like Iraq before it, never attacked us nor was a threat to us.

I've been reading reports that slapping a no-fly zone on a country is an act of war, and they would be consequences.

Now the US got involved in three unnecessary wars in three defenseless Arab nations on false pretenses. And you still don't know why the "terrorists" hates us? :mad:
