10:11 pm
what civilians it supports it doesn't support those civilians remark was it really does the support of want and of course we know that this. was about regimes like wants to get rid of gadhafi if they could just to stop this. if. they don't care about. so the world is terrible killings and so i'm sure. really this is a response well this is a big. event in the middle east have become an inspiration overseas as in the us the occupy wall street complain and say they're using arab spring revolutionary tactics to achieve their goals and corporate protests in new york around to their fourth week and have already spread to dozens of cities hitting the capital washington d.c. organizers claim will be in a thousand american cities by the end of the month as according to
