UN Approves No-Fly Zone Over Libya

The United Nations has approved a no-fly zone over Libya and British and French planes may begin attacking Gaddafi's forces tonight or tomorrow.  Have at it, French and Brits.

Meanwhile, Egypt continues sending weapons and ammunition to the Libyan rebels.  Are the rebels our friends?  Probably not, but no one knows for sure.  I can see no benefit in intervention except on humanitarian grounds, i.e. to prevent the slaughter of innocents; however, what is a limited operation today may very well grow into another full-fledged war.  Color me unenthusiastic.

where war is concerned there are no innocents. when you go to war, you go to war against a nation in order to bring down a State. the sooner people realize this fact the less likely that wars will be fought over power. and that is the only reasons wars are fought.

Are the rebels our friends?

In my view, no.

There is no "good side" to support in this conflict of Moslems against Moslems. **sigh**
