Libya is not in the North Atlantic area and Libya did not attack any members of NATO.

"In 2003 Gaddafi admitted Libya's responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing and paid compensation to the victims' families though he maintained that he never personally gave the order for the attack." Case Closed. Besides, Ghaddafi had an Interpol Warrant put out on Osama bin Laden in 1998 and Libya has been removed from the state sponsered terrorist list.

Yes, NATO itself had congressional approval, a treaty requires a Super Majority in the Senate to be lawful. However, the attack on Libya never had a vote taken in the Congress. That loud mouth fool, John McCain was all for it, but he is a neo-Con so no surprise there.

Are you for real? We have a robot the size of a car driving around on the surface of Mars right now. We have landed spacecraft on asteroids and on the surface of speeding comets. The Voyager probes relayed information from the farthest reaches of the solar system for 35 years. The Hubble telescope has changed the face of what we know about the universe.....Neither the Russians or the Chinese will be capable of such things for 100 years and we have been doing it for 50.

Is that so, you moronic wingnutz idiots stop at nothing to belittle the Obama administration – anything goes, right in line with the rightwing propaganda machinery – truth and country be damned. The unmanned SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral on May 22, carrying 1,300 pounds of food, clothing and scientific experiments on a demonstration mission to gauge the company's ability to safely and efficiently deliver supplies to astronauts staffing the orbiting station. Private space travel -- A new era begins! SpaceX makes history with its launch and marks the culmination of six years of preparation to bring commercial flights to the space station following the retirement of NASA's space shuttle fleet. It's backed by super entrepreneur Elon Musk.

Italy, being a member, was facing financial and security instability, due to the number of north africans, mainly Libyans escaping across the Med, to Italian shores...more than enough to react with other members......As far as Ghaddafi, i would think it was NATO's plan, that his own people, be allowed to get him.....BTW, Interpoll warrants aren't how we roll....special forces sanctions are quicker and cleaner....no lengthy trials...no martyrdom...no more lengthy engagements.....

My personal view is this.
USA need a new founding grand mother or father..
the electoral system smells. It is just controlled system copiously financed like cologne carnival or German football..
Now with the above views i wish Obama get reelcted and help the poor USA#s citizen who deserve their DREAM becoming a reality..
Let me quote this from an article not from Germany nor from India.

"Obama is not only different by the colour of his skin; he is of a different generation, untarnished by the Vietnam trauma and unencumbered by Cold War confines or rhetoric. Rather than simply paint his inauguration speech with patriotic colours he called upon Americans to "pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of rebuilding America". And, internationally he focussed on "mutual interest with and respect of the Muslim world", and diplomacy and dialogue in resolving global affairs, starkly different from his predecessor.
He then jump-started his first term, simultaneously taking on a plethora of complex historically intractable issues such as complete nuclear disarmament, healthcare, withdrawing US troops from Iraq, ending the war in Afghanistan, nuclear proliferation concerns in Iran and North Korea, and the Arab-Israeli conflict, all while responding to the challenges posed by the global financial crisis and the continuing threat posed by terrorism.
I am not yet a pessimist but am already much less optimistic "

Yes. Private Space Travel. Capitalistic Space Travel. It is the model that made the US great.

In that vein:

"In February 2012 Playboy proposed an orbital "space club", in conjunction with Virgin Galactic. Their plans include a restaurant and a zero gravity dance club."

Now, if I'm not mistaken, Obama is in charge of NASA.

Bad day, huh? No reason to be a potty mouth.

We already need to pay 50 million dollars to Russia just to hitch a ride to the International Space Station.

"As of 2012[update], the International Space Station and Tiangong 1 are the only operational space stations currently in orbit."

"The People's Republic of China is expected to launch two more space labs called Tiangong 2 and Tiangong 3 before 2016. It will then launch a three module 60-ton space station by 2022. Project 921-2 is the working name given by the People's Republic of China for plans to create a manned space station."

"The Indian Space Research Organisation has proposed a budget of 12,400 crore (US$2.24 billion) for its human spaceflight program.[26] According to the Space Commission which recommended the budget, an unmanned flight will be launched after 7 years of final approval.[27] and a manned mission will be launch after 7 years of funding.[28][29] If realized in the stated time-frame, India will become the fourth nation, after the USSR, USA and China, to successfully carry out manned missions indigenously."

The United States???

NASA would build a new capsule and a pair of rockets. First, a rocket to take astronauts up to low Earth orbit, where the station is. And then a bigger rocket, to support a return to the moon by 2020.

"The new program was called Constellation, and for years, that was the post-shuttle plan. But after President Obama took office, he ordered a review. A panel of experts said despite the billions already spent, Constellation had been underfunded, was behind schedule and couldn't reach its goals without a lot more money."

"Last year, the administration decided to kill Constellation, and Obama traveled to Kennedy Space Center in Florida to make the case."

A State Of Uncertainty?

"The loss of Constellation was a shock for many NASA workers. Shuttle launch director Mike Leinbach recently expressed those feelings when he made some personal remarks to his launch team after they finished a practice countdown for the final shuttle mission."

"Throughout the history of the manned space flight program, we've always had another program to transition into — from Mercury to Gemini, and to Apollo to the Apollo-Soyuz test program, to Skylab and then to the shuttle — we've always had something to transition into," Leinbach said. "And we had that, and it got canceled, and now we don't have anything, and I'm embarrassed that we don't."
