Hillary Clinton: No-Fly Zone Over Libya Must Be An International EffortSecretary of State Hillary Clinton told Sky News Wednesday that a no-fly zone over Libya cannot be a U.S.-led effort, and would need the backing of the international community.
"I think it's very important that this not be a U.S.-led effort, because this comes from the people of Libya themselves," she told Sky News.
"This doesn't come from the outside. This doesn't come from some Western power or some Gulf country saying this is what you should do, this is how you should live."
I couldn't agree more. If the international community wants something done in Libya then the international community needs to do it. This crap of everyone else standing around with their hands in their pockets while the U.S. does the job and then criticizing the U.S. if it doesn't go correctly is getting old.
I still wish Hillary had gotten the Democratic nomonation...

I don't see why we have to do anything at all with it. Its EUropes problem, let them handle the millions of refugees when they come flooding into Europe. We have millions of illegals coming here and I don't see Europe saying ANYTHING about it.
If we can take 30 million illegals they can to.

Yes and Europe doesn't use any oil, right?
Actually if you do some reading you will find that most US politicians support staying out of it and so far we have. If we get involved it is because the rest of the members of the UN lack the spine to perform any military action on their own, as usual.
Also, getting involved for oil would be kind of silly seeing as Libya only produces about 2.5% of the world's oil. However, they are where Europe gets much of it's oil. Perhaps the UN push for the US to get involved is because of Europe's own thirst for oil.

The days of "It's Europe's problem" or "It's Africa's problem" are over. 50-100 years ago, that may have been so, but today, it's a global economy, global community, and a global problem...and there should be a global solution.
"I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."

Personally I think we need to stay out of it, period. No matter what happens, we stay home. If this turns into an outright massacre, it isn't our problem.

Many times its America sticking their nose in things and causing these problems. How many dictators has the USA put into place and how many death have those dictators caused? America has alot of wrongs that need righted and they need to figure the best way to do this,turning a blinds eye and ignoring this is not the way. They can supply the rebels with medical aid, maybe food fresh water. freeze these warlords/ dictators/ect. assets show the world the America has compassion and doesnt need to resort to handing out guns/drugs/or invading countries and destroying whatever.

Compasion is also about not prolonging the death of the doomed.
