    We've already paid for it, through taxation
    It is currently being paid for out of the Defence budget, and there is 6 weeks in the satchel

    The last Iraq war cost me 0.8p
    I can't see the Libya "conflict" costing as much as the Iraq war, but there needs to be a clear exit strategy (should have learnt from Iraq about that)

    Personally, the UN needs to be more proactive and disable all weapons, not just those of the Libyan forces
    However, targeting hand weapons is quite difficult from high level aircraft

    Forget about how much Lybia will cost us.

    I watched a program last night looking at payrises, the cost of living, food increases and mortgages. I think they said in the UK there are 200k homes that are just clinging onto keeping their homes and affording to pay their bills (Known as ledge dwellers). If the interest rates rose 1% there would be another 179k.

    I also read on the net y-day that if interest rates went back upto 5% 3.7million homes would struggle to pay the mortgage with 779k homes being repossessed.

    The average middle income combined was 42k with most people not having a payrise for the past 2 years. The last time we were in this economic mess was 1920

    So what does the government do? Get us involved in more crap we can't afford so they can tax us even more to pay for it. Really is time it stood up and started looking after us for a change

    I wonder if those Ledge Dwellers were given mortgages outside their capacity to pay back, lent by greedy banks at the height of competitive borrowing.

    At which point if these ledge dwellers became unable to pay with the slightest interest percentage rate increase, I wonder if they could sue the borrowing bank for professional negligence and the subsequent hardship they had?

    My point being, they should never have been given the money in the first place.

    Supposedly the money is coming from the UN to enforce the resolution but since the UN gets money from member countries then we will be paying some of it somewhere.
    It would be interesting to for some-one to try to sue the banks, I don't think they would win as they would use the interest rates as a variable outside of there control with would scupper the entire thing.

    True but why borrow what you can't payback? Yes the banks have a moral right to ensure people can pay the money back and they did not but you also got to land it on the plate of the people that borrowed more then they could afford to pay.

    Banks are a bunch of greedy a55es
