Our captured crew are FREE!!!! Praise the spaghetti monster! I knew the (female)crews member, lovely girl!
Well, you've said it shipmate; but when did what is morally right ever count? Though not the same scenario, this one is shaping up to be the equivalent of the Bosnia debacle, when the world watched as people got slaughtered, until it became unbearable not to intervene. And yes, I've read and listened to all the arguments for and against interevention, and we just have to accept that the Libyan people will not be helped directly to defend themselves against their dictator. And of course, we all still want the oil, so once the dust settles it will be 'business as usual'
I understand that morally count for nothing in Realpolitik, but the Western politicians make use a laughing stock. all the time talking about moral high ground, but when they really have to take action.........
BTW it is in our(European) interests to support the Libyan people, if Gaddafi do win. Italy and Malta will flooded with refugees, mainland Europe will have to take more refugees(greatest fear of Right-wing parties) just like it during the Yugoslavian conflicts.
I always have been supporter of Obama, but men! he lack the balls of Reagan!
