Is It Too Much To Ask For?

Millions and hundreds are being killed each passing day in Libya.. It's saddening to hear the toll of the deceased being spoken about as if they're counting any ordinary numbers.. What's yet more devastating is the fact that we're hopeless, we can't see anything happening in order to stop all these killings of innocent lives. As if it became the norm to hear/watch people being shot down, murdered without feeling a pang of pity... Can't imagine how the Libyans are living right now with planes flying over them, dropping bombs and killing whoever comes in the way. We'd say it's none of our business, but how's that so? Aren't they Arabs? Muslims? More importantly, human beings? 

Can we live in peace again? Is it so much to ask for under all that's going on? Would I be selfish to wish that all of this stops right now, at this very second? Just last night, my Libyan teacher's brother was killed in his own house..just because he's a reporter, for getting the truth out there. Does he deserve to die for telling the world what's taking part in his country? When did taking one's life for doing his job become ordinary? May all of their souls rest in peace.

A question to think about; Can't we do anything at all to stop this madness?

The UN interfered. That shows how bad the situation is. If he is not stopped anytime soon, I am sure the UN will not stay quiet.

I wish this all ends as soon as possible. All I hear in the radios is how people die in Lybia and how the UN and the leaders are very dissatisfied.

Each Dollar a bullet, each victim someone's son...

Don't rage a war against your country unless you're ready to take causalities, they started the protest but the leader didn't like it, they get shot down and that's their country.

A hype that turned into a disaster, i really hope it ends soon and I hate seeing this happen to other countries
