Latest news is that Gadaffi has brought in mercenaries to help put down the revolt and some residents claim jets have been bombing civilian protesters - there is no proof of that at the moment, although there is other reports that two of his fighter pilots defected aftere being told to bomb their own people.



If the British or American people revolted like this, how do you think our governments would deal with us?

The British and the US would use nuclear weapons. No, seriously I think the governments would resign and new elections would be held. What else do you think as a possible outcome?? We're talking about democracies.

I think most people would wait the 2 to 4 years it takes for elections to be held then just vote them out of office. Gadaffi has been in power for over 40 years...

America really has duty to protect libya's citizens. We launched the push for democracy (2003 and before) and now it's time to stand up. Air strikes on the presidential palace and military installations seems appropriate.

Again, I'm not so sure we're not behind this to begin with. After all, most normal civilians don't overrun military bases and seizes weapons and tanks with the eventual goal of a civil war in mind.

The reason is that when heartless says something stupid, he really means it and believes it.

The Egyptian revolution was started by the Egyptians and not anyone else like you seem to suggest. Mubarak was a puppet dictator of the U.S., and it seems highly unlikely and counter-intuitive to assume that the CIA planned to depose him.
Of course though, the U.S. would try to fabricate American links to the uprising, as it did in 1958 when the Dominican Republic assassinated U.S puppet dictator Trujillo.
Anyways, what I'm saying is, this revolution belongs to the natives and to try and find a Lawrence of Arabia to explain the Egyptian's success is a colonialist attempt to take credit from the Egyptian people.

He was a puppet who was beginning to stray from his handlers, so of course the CIA would have a plan to depose him. They want you to believe it was the people who rose up all by themselves. If there hadn't been been outside interference getting the people to show their hatred for their leader, then why didn't they do it long ago? The main players organising the protests obviously know they're being backed by a higher power, who probably told them they'll back them all the way. People don't just stand up together like that unless they think they're going to get away with it.
Similar thing happened in 1991 when George Bush told the kurds to stand up and fight Saddam, they thought they had backing except on that occasion Saddam put the revolt down and the west thought "Oh well, maybe next time, seeya guys, you're on your own."
