I dunno dude...
What you say makes sense.
But if they did link Osama to Iran, it would be pretty funny.

They are not going to link them to Iran!

The US does not like Ahmadinejad, but another war is something they can ill afford and I believe that Ahmadinejad's days are numbered regardless.

Paphitis...No, the NATO airstrikes are not overly-damaging the country - yet - but there's still time. Oil is the main goal of NATO/USA.

There is no way on this Earth that anyone can beat China, so a war there will not happen. It would be interesting to see what steps the West would actually take if North Korea bombed South Korea and came out and admitted it. What would they do? What could they do? If it finally came down to it, I would think the West would tell South Korea to take a running jump.

You are far too cynical Mapko!

Oil is not the prime objective, and nor do they want to pulverise Libya to ground.

The war almost ended when they nearly got Gadaffi last night, but alas, the fight continues unless Gadaffi unconditionally surrenders.

The Libyan people will eventually be freed from this tyrant, the question is, how long can Gadaffi hold out?

You will notice that the US has only authorised Air Strikes. They do not want or envisage a Land Operation and a prolonged occupation.

Why the hell would we want a War with China? China is a major trading partner and whilst the dollars are there, we are more than happy to have friendly relations. They are our manufacturing base and they consume our resources and materials, thus propping up our economy.

We have no interest in having a War with China, and China can't afford a War against the West. China can not win any War against us if it became adventurous.

North Korea did attack South Korea recently. But this action ceased as quickly as it had started. The West is fully committed to the security of South Korea. It is a very important country, and the allies will never abandon it under any circumstances. North Korea would be very foolish to start anything, and it will be China that will tell North Korea to take a running jump if anything. China will not risk its economic ties for a tin pot Communist regime with a starving population. Chinese interests lie with Australia and the US.

Anyone targetting civilians for any cause whatsoever is an enemy of humanity. Have no pity for Bin Laden, good riddance.

Paphitis...This world is cycnical. There are too many people out there who shaft others making it difficult to trust, hence the cynics.

Look, everyone knew what Gadaffi was like and yet the West has allowed him to stay in power all this time. Is it a coincidence that the West are targetting countries with vast amounts of oil that aren't really rich? Of course the USA has authorised airstrikes - that way, they can do more damage without losing men on the ground.

No, I didn't mean the West would want a fight with China, I meant that China will look after its allies - North Korea is China's ally - so nothing will be done about North Korea. We can only speculate that North Korea bombed a South Korean island, but what happened? There were some very strong words banded about, but no action.

The West is targetting Libya with Air Strikes only, in order to assist the rebels and protect revolutionary Libyans. There is no desire to take over the country.

If Gadaffi didn't move against Benghazi, then the West would in all likelihood not act, and Gadaffi would remain in power in a partitioned country.

If think it is very unlikely that China would do anything to assist North Korea if it attacked South korea, because the US and allies would most certainly declare war against North Korea. China will turn its back on North Korea because it will not sacrifice itself and its economic ties.

If anything, China is in Australia's pocket. If trade ties cease tomorrow, our economy will decline, but it will be lights out for China and the country will collapse.
