    where will it stop? Libyas border methinks

    Probably in Egypt if it can't fly over Libya. Boom boom

    probably when gaddafi and his cohorts are dead or in guantanamo (wasn't obama meant to shut this) and unable to dish the dirt on the grubby deals he's struck with most of the west.

    a complete waste of money and it wont work

    why are the UK getting so heavily involved and threatening military action? Havent we learnt anything from the Iraq and Afghanistan fiascos? Or do the government need yet another way to divert tax income from the poor taxpayers to the rich now that Iraq is winding down?

    All the libyans on both sides have told foreign countries to keep away!

    Our government just can't keep their noses out can they, our country is in a bad enough state as it is without going and getting involved in yet another foreign affair.
    if our government put as much thought into running this country as they do into interfeering with other countries we might be a little better off.

    On the lybia note this isn't going to stop here more and more of these countries are seeing the power the people really have, just imagine what this kind of uprising would do to this country if it ever happened, termoil over night, not that anything liek that would ever happen here lol.

    Indeed. I wonder how much Salmond earned out of his "release the prisoner" campaign!

    I think they should just let them get on with it and do whatever they want to each other. There is no gratitude for getting rid of military dictators so we shouldn`t waste a single bullet. And lets be fair, it'll probably be out with one terrorist and in with the next.

    If they don't interfere it might go on for ages. If it goes on for ages then Saudi aren't going to pick up the oil deficit forever. This means petrol prices will rocket and the economy will suffer. Oh yeah and we need to save the innocent people

    We don't have a repressive murderous dictator.

    Our government did learn the mistakes of irag & afghanistan..... but we got rid of them last year and got a new government with dummies in their mouths. Had we kept with Labour, maybe they would have taken a different approach.

    So lets get this straight.... You want the US or UK to do nothing to help the people in libya and ignore Gaddafi altogether while he commits genocide?

    Hey, I'm with you if thats the case.

    You are aware that Gaddafi is bombing his own citizens - maybe someone in the government sees that as a bad thing.

    The fact that we trade with Libya probably has something to do with it.

    Russia has enough to worry about with Chechen rebels, which is weird because you'd expect them to be more 'peaceful'.

    that approach worked in afghanistan, iraq too didnt it?

    and libya produce around 1% of world oil so hardly significant really.

    Just seems ridiculous that we get told daily about how much debt this country is in, yet seem to still think we're a global power who likes to be a knight in shining armour in other countries problems despiote the fact they probably hate us and want us to mind our own business.

    Almost 8% of Europe's supply comes from Libya. Time and prices will tell if it's significant. Prices have jumped at far smaller things in the past.

    Personally I am hoping Pakistan goes the same way very very soon then its a good excuse to get in there,take control and finally deal with that hell hole of a terrorist supporting country once and for all.

    Considering the 3 superpowers dependence on each other for resources and trade (especially Chinas trade!) it's extremely unlikely for the US to invade Russia or for China to attack us for that matter.

    Fortunately Cameron seems to have a better head on hit shoulders than Brown or Blair ever had. Blair was merely Bushes handbag chihuahua.

    Didnt USA corporations get the majority of business in Iraq and we got screwed with Afgan, what makes this any different? We act all mighty as a country, get involved in someone else's argument and then our "best mate" the USA gets involved and no doubt will get awarded oil contracts etc in the aftermath. It's ridiculous!

    salmond didn't make the decision and it wouldn't have mattered whatever party was in power as he had to be released under scots law .
    Now were it gets murky for me is how far the labour government went in informing and helping the libyans get him released through this "loophole" and what did they get in return.

    quote]We don't have a repressive murderous dictator.[/quote]

    No we don't we just have a lousy government who like to put this country behind the rest, they would rather give our money away then use it to put this country right, they would rather waste millions each day staying in the EU when we never actually needed the EU before, they would rather spend our money fighting wars for other countries than putting that money into our own economy.

    I have no problem with caring for other countries but i do have a problem with it when it comes at a cost to our own country, we have spent decades helping other countries it's time we thought about ourselves for a change and once our country is back on track and we're running properly again then we can start thinking about what we can do for others!

    with apparently the full backing of the "english" labour government. The englishman and then UK justice secretary jack straw even said libya had become an "important partner in the fight against terrorism" and was helping to counter illegal immigration.

    I wonder what has changed, which ties nicely back to my original point of grubby deals.

    just watching sky news & its kicking off, UK, the US and France fire dozens of missiles at Libya targets.A British submarine has fired a number of Tomahawk missiles at Libyan air defence targets.
