"Gaddafi on Saturday called on war with Italy"

What does "called on war" mean?

Crazy like a fox. This invokes NATO by definition. If Lybia manages an actual op against Italy, *we* as in the US is obligated to respond if requested (as are all NATO members).

So let’s say that happens. That either put US boots on the ground or obama abrogates the NATO alliance.

Either way, Qadaffi wins.

Of course, none of that happens unless Lybia successfully attacks Italy.

Or am I wrong? I only skimmed the treaty that created NATO. And that was over a decade ago.

Well, I can understand why Obama is involved. He wants to help the Muslim terrorists take over all the Arab states.

But why on earth has Italy allowed itself to get involved? This is war in the Mediterranean, right in their neighborhood. Did they really expect to help bomb Libya and not have Libya bomb them in return? Or their ships or citizens? Is Kaddafi just supposed to take it, and never retaliate?

I certainly don’t want to see any Italians killed. But what on earth are they thinking of? And France? I know they have colonial ambitions in Chad and the Ivory Coast, but why on earth do they want to provoke and alienate Kaddafi?

Gaddafi was Italy’s immigration gatekeeper for the mere sum of $8 billion annual if I’m not mistaken. I’m sure both nations are not pleased with the disruptions.

I'll get some flack for this... but if it's true that Ghadiffi son's house, a civilian residence, was bombed and his grand CHILDREN were killed, I would consider that a war crime.

Ghadiffi himself is evil, but sorry I gotta problem with bombing a house full of kids who aren't. It may not be true, don't know. But if it is, I'm disgusted. And it's not a whole lot different than a terrorist attack....
