More power to the rebels, if they are fighting for freedom and an elected government. If they believe in democracy and the rights of women I am 100% in supporting them.

as the pig flees, who's next? Bashar al-Assad is a dead man walking. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be strung up by his testicles. And the evil of all evil, Seyed Ali Hoseyni Khāmene’i, is weeks from a horrific death.

God willing of course!

George, what makes you think this is what they are fighting for. It is too early yet but my hnch is they are fighting for a money and ofro Western power who want their oil. I do not beleive that anyone cares two hoots about Libyan people including women. Not NATO, not Obama,not Sarkozi ,mot Cameroon. Everyone wants a piece of the Libyan Oil. Western nations have found another way to coloinalize. Libyans will suffer the same fate as the Iraqis. years of instability,turmoil,more deaths, Ilsamic radicalization, etc but who cares , you and other westerners will get oil!!!

The Arab world needs the oil revenue as much as the west needs the oil to grow the food and keep the cogs of industry turning for a better future for all, which will keep us all safe.
In the real world the truth is, what future did any Arab nation have without oil
The west pays for oil we do not knock doors down and take it as some of your so called leaders do with your basic human rights.
I feel pride for the people of Libya and wish them well for the future.

And Bobby there is one thing you should learn about the West we are free, and will fight along side anyone who wants freedom, but it would be better just to be friends, and not fight anyone. not even a hand full of so called men who have squandered the Libyan peoples wealth obtained from OIL!!!! for Forty two years, and yes a bit of truth about Iraq bad mistake, or was it? a lot of western troops lost their lives there for freedom and the chance of democracy more deaths, yer your right keep your oil and your leaders, I have just bought an electric car
