#1 The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu has rejected any foreign military intervention in troubled Libya.
Ihsanoglu also pointed out that the UN Security Council should enforce a no-fly zone over Libya.

Stupidity this profound ought to have consequences. What the fuck does this imbecile think a no-fly zone represents, anyways? Does he imagine that Gaddafian warplanes can be grounded by position papers and hot air?

#3 "We join our voice to the voices asking for a no-fly zone in Libya, and we call on the Security Council to do its duty in this regard," he said.

You go ahead. We'll be right behind you.

#6 I'm hoping for a drawn out civil war with arab nations taking sides and destroying each other.

Pakistan sent units to participate in the Six Day and Yom Kippur wars, and Jordan's little Black September adventure. Perhaps they could join in the Libyan festivities, too.

Come to think of it, the Black September thingie is the only war Pakistan's army has been involved in that it has won. But the BS thingie really is "quelling an internal uprising", not a proper war at all.
