‘Stupid Libya war doomed to fail as EU falling apart itself’

The French Parliament is due to vote on extending the military campaign in Libya. It comes after recent remarks by its defence minister suggesting that the rebels should talk to Colonel Gaddafi. This has sparked rumours that one of the most active advocates of the NATO-led invasion, might be starting to back-pedal on the campaign. John Laughland – Director of the Institute of Democracy and Cooperation in Paris says France now realises it has to find a way out of Libya to avoid losing face.

oh RussiaToday, what amazing state-owned propaganda.

@OnlyLifeMatters Russia Today is the propaganda wing of all the political hucksters in Moscow, so it isn't surprising they may…….obfuscate certain details.

Even so, I'm inclined to agree with them this one time. I don't believe my nation has any business whatsoever in Libya.

@OnlyLifeMatters I doubt even 3% of that petroleum will go to the United States. I can understand helping out good allies such as England, but not if means pulling everyone else by the boot-straps when we see nothing to gain…..

Basically, this war is pretext for French oil interests, which controlled a huge stake in the Algerian region.

@inDpendant this war was a war between lybian forces and lybian peoples, usa only gave logistics in this war which cost us jack shit.
our debt is huge but its always been huge, in 1949 our debt to gdp ratio was much larger then today, paying debt isnt as horrible as you may think especially for usa which industry is mostly private thus public hardly has to pay for it

@trvth1s we now know that is bullshit!…..libya is being overthrown, by an imperialistic government, THE USA!….just hope China, and Russia dont nuke the fuck out of us!…their catchin on!

@inDpendant how is that bullshit? all the proof says syrias rebels are syrian civilians, even assad propaganda admitts the rebels are syrians. how are they from the usa?lol if usa had troops there assad wouldnt be in power.
russia and china nuke the usa? usa is chinas biggest customer, they wont make enemys with us for a 3rd world country.
russia is a 3rd world country now.
usa military expenditure is bigger then russia, chinas and eu's combined.

Russia not 3rd world? Tell that bullshit to these children; /watch?v=ErNKZCWo03c
I'm not sure if you knew this but USA helped take care of Russias nuclear stockpile & a report indicated that almost none of them work anymore [unlike USA nukes].
Russia doesnt even have a super carrier! They sold it to China LOL

Russias military is very out-dated, but you're right if they planned it well they could finish us off but theid also end up dead, its a loose-loose. WW3 didnt happen because Washington & Moscow have long known the outcome.

Yes Russia is not a 3rd world, but is still a 2nd world nation, that is highly corrupt, spreads propaganda like here in RT, and people every day flee for a better life. And nukes dont matter, USA needs 2-3 nukes to destroy Russia anyway, just because of Russia's land mass it means shit if your country doesnt have enought population.

I dont care if your comment is 1 year old, but hell US owes China 2.6trillions, out of 16trillion we have now do the 2nd grade math.

Jake Sawy

Nukes do matter, USA needs more then 2-3 nukes to destroy Russia and if they ever fired nukes at Russia they would also get nuked and then there's no more USA. No country should piss of a nuclear country, This is hypothetical by the way…..USA vs UK. USA almost completely takes over the UK within weeks, UK are near annihilation so they just nuke USA and USA nuke UK. They both lose. Nukes mean a lot

The answer is the same no matter how you do the math!…and you are right, it was a year ago!…and that was Libya!..but, now we are in Syria, and who is next!…I know,…Pakistan!…North Korea, Iran!…take your pick!…but who could afford all this war?..I mean our economy is broken..no one pays taxes, if they dont work…so they must be borrowing trillions!…the debt cieling was just raised again!…before Obama is done, it will be 26 trillion!!!.WTF!..is that 2nd grade enough for you?

This is your smart comment because in nuclear war nobody will win. Its a humanity suicide.

I dont like when you get usually your info from RT. We do nothing to Syria besides monitoring situations. We have nothing against Paki's, let India do it, since they love to fuck Paki's alot. We wont attack N.K or Iran, unless they do the attack first. There are alot of people paying high taxes, especially those on food stamps, and unemployment is 7.9% so what? Our dept is public dept which means we owe to our country and not to foreign one, 63% of our dept is owned by us, look at UK 500% dept.

Israel Garcia

We owe to our country, and not private one!….how about this….we owe to federal reserve, which is privately owned bank!….you dweeb!..and unemployment is more like 17%-20%…they keep sayin 10% to keep the people from panicking!!…and now that china is selling oil in Yuen, it wont be long before the dollar collapses!…and its "debt"…and not "dept"!…
