Where to from here.

Uncle Sam has intervened in Libya. You might save those innocents if you are quick.  When Gaddafi gets the flick, will the US pull out altogether or leave a lingering token army there to protect the oil reserves?  How long do you think this will go?  Will we see Obama standing on the deck of the US Stickitintothem claiming the war is won? Any thoughts.

Re: Where to from here.

I will just be glad to get it settled one way or the other, so that normal oil production can get back to normal.... and oil prices can settle back down to where it was before.

 

If it gets below 3 bucks per gallon again, I just might buy another fuel storage tank or two and fill them up before it heads back up to $5-$6+ per gallon again.

 

Better living through hoarding!

Re: Where to from here.

Although 88 per cent of the the US have their primary concern on the cost of fuel, the ramifications will go far deeper than that.  Mama Gaddafi has vowed to stretch it out as long as possible.  Like Vietnam posibly?  How many wars can the US fight at the one time?  Your Wall street guys will throw some light on it today.   We are now paying $6.30 per gallon for diesel and the pike has not hit us yet.  THAT is expensive.

You forget this is a UN operation called for by the arab league. How will it end? With people in charge of the country that hates America more than anything on earth.

Re: Where to from here.

Old mate was right about that Nobel peace priae, what a joke.  It strikes me as odd, every time the UN want some work done, the US are first cab off the rank to help. US involvement will not do the cause of peace over there one bit of good.  It can only end up ugly.

Re: Where to from here.

You got it right. there are other countries in the region with air forces far superior to libya's. Let the ----ing middle east nations handle this situation.  We'll end up with a religion based "democracy" that hates us more than the dictators. I'm growing more convinced that these countries don't have a cultural background to successfully run a free country. Greed , graft, and power hungry people are just endemic to middle eastern culture. The positive side would be that we probably would get to sell them our out of date ordinance!  Win- win!!
