I was really hoping he would man up and fight to the death, blow up all his oil fields, and kill as many foreign invaders as he could. All this does if give the Western War Machine more fuel to continue our illegal and criminal intervention into areas where we have no business. It's not our job to run the world. It was a dumb idea to begin with for all the years we've been doing it, and now we simply can't afford to finance the military industrial complex in their make war for profit adventures. TRIPOLI, Libya Ã¢â¬â Libya declared an immediate cease-fire and promised to stop military operations Friday in a bid to fend off international military intervention after the U.N. authorized a no-fly zone and "all necessary measures" to prevent the regime from striking its own people. The announcement by Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa followed a fierce attack by Gadhafi's forces against Misrata, the last rebel-held city in the western half of the country. A doctor said at least six people were killed. The U.N. Security Council resolution, which was passed late Thursday after weeks of deliberation, set the stage for airstrikes, a no-fly zone and other military measures short of a ground invasion. Britain announced that it would send fighter jets and France was making plans to deploy planes, but the U.S. had yet to announce what its role would be. NATO also held an emergency meeting. With the international community mobilizing, Koussa said the government would cease fire in line with the resolution, although he criticized the authorization of international military action, calling it a violation of Libya's sovereignty. "The government is opening channels for true, serious dialogue with all parties," he said during a news conference in Tripoli, the capital.
