    O Lord, once again saying a prayer for the dead. This time in Libya. I pray you send the souls of the dead to heaven and forgive their sins, Lord.

    This is a tragedy. A prayer of protection to all reading.

    I wonder whether this is foreign orchestrated or spontaneous as the West claims. Since Mohammar Qadafi is no stooge of the West,it's hard to tell.

      How many of you were around for us dealing with Mo? 'cross this line, you die!' 'OK, cross THIS line, you die' 'BLAST! OK, THIS line – LAST line' 'OK, OK. This line?' i can't believe he's still in power. How lame can a people be?

      You forgot to note that Mohammar Qadafi is no run of the mill stooge of the West like Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and that makes the anti-Qadafi uprising quite questionable. Moreover,the Egyptians need to do more to protect women's rights by making harassment and domestic abuse illegal.

    It really is kind of his family investment. The ones we didn't blow up back in the 80s. Without Libya, they're worthless.

    So, I went to the fridge tonight to get a late night snack, but I found out, to my chagrin, that the cheese was moldy. I was faced with the dilemma: do i just cut out the moldy bit and eat the rest or just chuck the whole thing. Anyway, i'm sitting here posting because i still have yet to make a decision. Anyone out there suggest what i should do? By the way i haven't had any cheese for several weeks now and i'd really like some. Thanks for your input. And go Cowboys!

    what these national traitors are doing to the protesters is awfully wrong and unacceptable. As history indicates, killing the peaceful demostrators always fails the regime in control of power. Gandhi and the Indians let the world know how morally off track the britons were. Alabama civil right protesters held their ground to prove how evil the police were instructed to keep segregation at all cost. South africans showed their courage to teach the world of their brutal wounds at the hand of apathied regime supported by us, west germany and the english once again. At the end of the day of each events, the peace protesters were always reasoned with. Algeria and egypt just reminded us recently that nothing can stop the people. It's time MG stop the killing in answer the libyans' call to their country's problem!
