Should the multinational military force supporting Libyan rebels remain in action until Col. Muammar el-Qadafi is removed?

  • The military should support the rebels, because Col. Muammar el-Qadafi is being unjust to the citizens.

    The citizens of Libya are not being treated fairly. Qadafi is not listening to the people, and is doing whatever he wants by using the military to his own benefit. The citizens should be treated fairly and be given fair rights. The military is helping to see that Qadafi is removed, so that Libya can become a better country.

  • Only when Qadafi is captured can the rebel forces say they've won and, since they do not have the armaments to win without help, the multinational forces will need to continue providing aid.

    The only way to win the war is for the rebels to have help from other nations that are better armed. The rebels are basically relying upon what they find that's been discarded, or which they capture. And, that isn't sufficient.

  • I agree that the military force should remain in action until Qadafi is removed, because that's why they're there in the first place.

    Why put a multinational military force into action for the reason of removing Muammar el-Qadafi if you are going to remove them before the job is complete? It makes no sense to even have spent the money to deploy such forces, if they are not going to see the mission through to the end.

  • I agree the multinational forces should remain until the rebels are able to overcome Qaddafi, because they need as much help as they can get.

    The rebels are willing to fight for a cause. They need as much help as they can get. A man who has been in power for so long needs to hand over his power to some other leader who is willing to accommodate the needs of the people. If he is not willing to leave, then he needs to do as his people are asking.

  • I agree that the troops should keep helping the rebels, because of the genocide that was occurring in the country.

    When the troops went in to help the rebels, many of the rebels and innocent citizens were being slaughtered. This is why the troops need to stay and defer genocide from further occurring. It is the only reason that the troops should support the rebels. It is to make it a fair fight, and protect innocent citizens from being killed. Genocide will continue as long as the current dictator is in power.

  • I agree, because the people of Libya have been subjugated far too long under the rule of this dictator, and he has shown that he will do anything to stay in power and will not take into account the wishes of the people.

    When the people of Libya decided to finally ask for a regime change, they were met with oppression and brutal tactics from their government. As fellow humans, we can not sit idly by while they are being terrorized and murdered for wanting a better chance at life. No one should have to fear their government. As neighbors to the world, we can do nothing else but support the actions of the Libyan people by trying to force their government into a peaceful regime change.

  • Yes, because he is a cruel leader that oppresses his people and only with him out of power can real change be brought about.

    The multinational force supporting the Libyan rebels should remain active until el-Qadafi is removed from power, because he has been oppressive and brutal toward his own people and with him remaining in power, real change could not come about. Assuming the goal of the multinational force is to bring democracy to the Middle East, they have to stay committed- otherwise, it was pointless to have gotten involved in the first place.

  • The forces in Libya, under the approval of the UN, should continue to aid the rebels.

    The struggle in Libya will only become messier and bloodier as its timeline grows. For the sake of the Libyan civilians, the UN should approve much more decisive action, for one side or the other to end the fighting as soon as possible. It is the most effective and humane choice to make in this situation.

  • We are already involved in two military actions, and we need to focus on those, before we get involved in others.

    We are already involved in two military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. We need to focus on those, before we get involved in others. Also, Qadafi shows no signs of backing down. So, how long will we be paying for this additional military action?

  • The support of the Libyan rebels should not last much longer, because they are terrorist sympathizers.

    The time is now for the forces from America and other countries to get out of Libya. The country needs to work itself out, and people fail to realize we should not be taking sides. The rebels have ties to terrorism, and yet we all continue to support them. This needs to stop before it gets more out of hand.

  • I disagree with maintaining multinational military forces in Libya, because of the neo-colonization by these supportive countries.

    I believe that the multinational military forces are not "helping" Libya in this revolution because of the need of proper democracies in the world. These military forces are concerned with the wealth of their own countries, and often prey on countries in distress to find cheaper sources of labor and goods. This is how capitalism works. If they really wanted to help poor countries like this, there would have been more people in Darfur, or in any of the South American countries that have had problems with dictators.
