  3. If you understand Arabic, watch this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....99d7SVgyQU #

  4. There is no way a stalmate can occur in Libya if Qaddaffi's forces keep losing tank after tank & "rebels" keep getting more weapons, etc. #

  5. Either you enforce the "Responsibility to Protect," including on the ground, or you don't do anything anywhere internal to any nation-state. #

  6. You can't pick & choose when to use the RtoP. If the UNSC is the world cop, then protect regardless of wealth, power, control, & ethnicity. #

  7. If the UNSC isn't the world cop, stop firing on Qaddaffi's forces. In other words, make up your minds. Be consistent one way or the other. #

  8. The French have turned over a leaf. Is it new? They've stepped into Côte d'Ivoire on the ground. They want to do that in Libya. To what end? #

  9. Now that the Gulf Cooperation Council has said Saleh must go, he can't possibly survive in power against that and the US/UN. Wake up, Saleh! #

  10. No-fly Gaza is proper, but Hamas must be willing to take hits without retaliating. It will then gain the undeniable moral upper-hand. #

  20. Deregulation of the banking sector coupled with tax cuts for the rich exactly correlate with the crash. Reverse both, and things improve. #

  21. "Hillary...says...arrest of...Gbagbo sends a strong signal to dictators...about...consequences of ignoring the people's will." Not the UNSC? #

  24. RT @GreeGreece: "Hey, birthers, this looks pretty convincing . I put that on my blog back when. I buy it. Drag Trump in. #

  35. The Egyptian military is being stupid. "Arrest of Egyptian bloggers provokes doubt" http://t.co/HL8HswD..... via @youtube #

  36. Obama is right. Bush's tax cuts for the rich = stupid. You don't hear him give solutions: Nationalize the Fed, & issue United States Notes. #

  37. Nationalize the Federal Reserve, issue interest-and-tax free United States Notes, and pay off the National Debt right now. #

  38. Barack Obama said, "Nobody is an environmentalist until you get sick." Then he's not sick. Either way, he's wrong. #

  39. Fracking: Toxic spills, site explosions, carcinogenic water, huge CO2 releases, unknown seismic risks, distractions from clean sustainables. #

  40. Jonathan Tasini, if bloggers knew HuffPo wouldn't pay but you force them to pay, then I want money from everywhere I've written. Fair? #

  41. UNSC members have the legal duty by any means necessary unilaterally to enforce UNSC resolutions. UK/France, is Qaddaffi violating? Peace. #

  42. UK/France, is Qaddaffi violating the UNSC resolutions? Why pick and choose which laws to enforce and against whom? #

  46. Hillary Clinton didn't tell the Egyptian Military that by cracking down, it can quickly lose its handout from strapped American taxpayers. #

  47. Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton haven't told dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh to leave Yemen. Their failure helps al Qaeda to recruit. #

  48. Obama & Clinton haven't even called on Syria's dictator Bashar Assad to allow multi-party, "free-and-fair" democracy or step down now. #

  49. W/o nationalizing the Fed or issuing United States Notes, the historically low marginal tax-rates for the rich will cause greater problems. #

  50. AP article doesn't say North Dakota style state bank for 5 most populated US states. . Research: "Bank of North Dakota" #

  51. Overview this whole site. I did. Each US state should implement its own State Bank modeled on the "Bank of North Dakota": http://j.mp/da1nxJ..... #

  56. AZ Senate passed bill requiring presidential candidates prove born US citizens — claim no proof Obama born citizen, but: http://j.mp/hfLy29..... #

  57. Crime is caused by hardening hearts, lessened by softening hearts. The US & its prison industry harden — not designed to rehabilitate. #

  58. Anti-litigious? Republican Medicare/tort reform is the poor can't sue the malpracticing rich for full pain & suffering & punitive damages. #

  59. Syria: "Assad blames the violence on a foreign conspiracy and armed gangs rather than true reform-seekers." His forces are the armed gangs. #
