Analysts: More Libyan bloodshed could prompt U.S., NATO intervention

Excerpt:
(CNN) -- If the U.S. military were to intervene in an increasingly chaotic Libya, it would most likely be part of a NATO action in which Libyan bloodshed has reached a humanitarian crisis, analysts said Thursday.


As reports emerged Thursday about deadly clashes between leader Moammar Gadhafi's forces and anti-government protesters in the town of Zawiya near Tunisia, analysts highlighted how Gadhafi has already pledged to fight a rebellion to martyrdom.
Military intervention "is something which I hope doesn't happen, but it looks as though at some point that it should happen," said Simon Henderson, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Should the United States and NATO intervene to stop innocent civilians from being slaughtered by Forces and Mercenaries loyal to Gaddafi?

One possible solution is pressure on Libya's neighbors to step in and put a stop to this but that could spiral into an even bigger mess.

It's possible because a situation like this would feed their agenda but Al Qaeda's not ordering fighter jets and helicopter gunships to launch attacks against innocent civilians..

Al Qaeda has pilots and has used aircraft to target innocents. Remember 9-11?

Al Quida is a fiction. All the actions attributed to them are caused by the CIA and Mossad - at least that is what many believe.

I wonder if this means that Libya will lose its very important role as a human rights watchdog at the UN?

Are Libyans asking for outsides to intervene? The coverage on the radio made it sound like Libyans feel they will soon have their revolution, if not in hours, in the coming days. Jumping in when help isn't being asked for sounds like a bad idea to me.

NATO could probably do a better job than any other organization. The UN and the AU are pretty useless.

Reports from the Cities that are no longer under the Wackos control are asking for medical aid and a no fly zone at the least to protect civilians from being massacred by planes/choppers. It would save lives -

For once we finally agree, we do not need another war or attrition, if Gadhafi wins so be it, if the people win they will be the better for it, plus it will be their win. We all should just shut up and stay out of it.

Then we have people like this with a mind set that everything must be the fault of the USA and the CIA. They never will mature enough to cope with this new world that they created whether they know it or not.

What is sad is that every time some really bad **** happens any where in the world - They look to the US - Yet many are often to quick to condemn the same country that has done many things that have impacted the world in a positive way.

Are you denying that the CIA has had a hand in the fall of many a government that was replaced by a US backed brutal dictatorship? Are you trying to whitewash history? Are you a revisionist?

The CIA has had its hands dirty since its inception, so it's no wonder that many people think the way they do.

And so has the former USSR - It was called, a misnomer - Cold War -

But Cliffy - you prove my point.

Which one? The one on the top of your head?

Ya the USSR did a lot a nasty stuff, but it has been the US of late that has been messing up the middle east, big time.

Cliffy - I stated that the US did many good things - yet many would always go back to the past as you did - now you are in the present.

But the topic being intervention in Libya - now who do you think the world would ask if Wacko goes and starts mass murder - perhaps using chem weapons - Will they ask China - Russia - No - NATO and that means mostly the US.

There's a great irony to all this: while right wing liar Bush said he wanted democracy in Arab lands, he did nothing to promote it. Instead, he gave money to those brutal dictators further entrenching tyranny.

Obama was awarded the Nobel Prize much to the hate and consternation of the far right, and now all these tyrannies are being toppled with Obama's blessings.

Why don't the far right Obama haters on this forum say anything about that?

The sanctions unilaterally imposed by Obama are OK. No further action is warranted.

Ironically, the great ''pro democracy'' Bush did nothing like that.

''USA demoncracy''

40% of Libya's oil is owned by American companies. Therefore, USA demoncracy is in full force there.
