: : I read this forum but I've never commented. But I wondered why nobody is talking about what is going on in Libya? Do you think the US is right to be fighting a new war over there?
: What is there to say? Who knows what is really going on over there? Are "the rebels" just normal folks wanting to get rid of their leaders, or is is a military coup? How do you tell?
How do you tell? You can't. The US military learned their lesson in Vietnam, and that lesson was to make sure the people of the United States do not get ANY information about what is going on. The only information we are likely to get is military propaganda to make sure we think they are doing everything exactly right. If we ask what the plan is, we are being unpatriotic to even ask.
