Arab League Endorses No-Flight Zone Over Libya

CAIRO — The Arab League asked the United Nations Security Council on Saturday to impose a no-flight zone over Libya in hopes of halting Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s attacks on his own people, providing the rebels a tincture of hope even as they were driven back from a long stretch of road and towns they had captured in the three-week war.

Opinion: If the Arab League wants to help the anti Qaddafi forces well fine, there are OTHER WAYS besides the U.S. being the main player (no-flight zone).

THEY can do something themselves; i.e. ARM the REBELS!

MILITARY STRENGTH:

EGYPT is ranked is ranked 17th in the world

SAUDI ARABIA is ranked 25th in the world

 And, if Egypt and K.S.A. isn’t enough, Sarkozy and Cameron can do ‘something’ besides talk, talk, and talk.

As of today, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have cost the lives of 5,502 Americans, and over $1TRILLION; enough already!

Bottom-line: to everyone who wants to drag the U.S. into a THIRD WAR, FCUK YOU!
