Not in Alaska's interest

Oh boy! A brand new oil war! This without consent or consultation of the American people or Congress (not that Congress has the backbone, intelligence or conscience to stand against another illegal, immoral war) No, it's done using the strong arm of the U.N. under the guise of a humanitarian rescue, as thousands of our bombs rain down on Libya unable to discern between woman, child, civilian or defender of his own country.

This outright act of war is oversimplified as the creation of a "no fly zone"? It will serve Americans right to go bankrupt, as we aren't demanding to our government electees that we stay out of imperialistic wars of aggression. George Washington said the same. Once more I wish to point out to Alaskans and our federal representatives: It is not even in the interest of Alaska to be in Mideast oil wars, we have our own oil.
