Why? WHY? I'll put it like this, and I know I'll get attacked, so here we go.

The people care more about japan because they along with myself are sick and tired of this two-party monopoly putting our troops in wars that we have no business fighting in!! So much for Professor Tomoe Obama being this anti-war president, which you idiots fell for like the gullible, sheep-like tapeworms you are. I don't wanna say I told you so...but I told you so.

I give a damn more about japan for what that country went through. Why the hell should I contuine to care about our government when they can't even fix the basic problems in their own back yard? I'm suppose to praise Obama for doing what Bush did when they both put our troops illegaly into a war?

Speaking of relevance, I believe what is happening in Japan is more relative to the average person than what is happening in Libya. I recall Libya has a small fraction of the oil production in the world, but even that little can affect the market greatly. Surely people would be worried about that. However what is happening in Japan affects plenty of parts of other countries' economies. That is just one aspect, but the big thing is the future of alternative energies with what is happening over there. Plenty of people are worried about what can happen with a nuclear disaster and others are worried about something that could relieve the dependence on oil. Plus, no one has the appetite for war. It is much easier to unite in a humanitarian way because of an earthquake and resulting tsunami than it is to pick a side in a war.


Continuing on that theme. There's a certain car paint pigment that's only made at one industrial plant in the world. Guess where that is?
Which is why you can't buy a new car in 'Tuxedo Black' (which uses 6 times as much of that pigment as any other colour on the new car menu)
and certain other colours while 'Currently' available using the stockpiles that have now been extended by a factor of 6 are strongly discouraged from sale.

Dude I think you're jumping the gun there. Yes US planes and aircrew are involved in this NATO activity against Armoured columns believed to be a threat to civilians, but the British are equally in there and no one has troops on the ground.

Also I'm not sure what's "illegal" about preventing Large well armoured and armed military formations from killing the civilians they supposedly swore an oath to protect. But then I'm not an international lawyer

Alternative energies as a solution to fulfilling our energy needs, although thought provoking and altruistic, is still a long way away. It is not the economic end all, be all solution presently. Solar applications currently cannot perform major tasks as inexpensively as prophesied by social engineers. Solar can turn on lights, certain relay switches, etc. It's practical as long as the application is small. Larger applications attempted using solar as the main source have not lived up to expectations and have been found to be uneconomical compared to the more prehistoric power alternatives currently available.

Wind power fares no better as an inexpensive choice. It's pricey, very pricey and will likely require subsidy from some governmental agency into perpetuity. The parts wear out after 2 years and have to be replaced. The flip side to this is partial employment for manufacturers Mitsubishi and/or Siemens and the truck lines that have to haul the replacement propellers or rotation motors on site. No one has told or trained certain fowl to change their migration routes or flight patterns where these monstrosities are functioning. Wind power, depending on locale and season, is a starving coyote's dream come true re dinner. Can the lawyers who work for PETA be far away re litigation? Financing is non-existent from the private sector. Early investors have lost money, lots of it. Wind power reliability in the US presently is non-existent. The equipment won't hold up to continuous use. The props run at 20% efficiency to ensure proper functioning.

Clean burning coal and natural gas is where it's at presently. And in the US and Canada these resources are abundant and priced within our means of affordability. Yet we're hamstrung by an overabundance of (damn) government regulations and so-so social activist planners who wish to see our civilization regress back to the halcyon era of cave dwelling or the horse and buggy as the primary means promoting change or relocation. Yippee????

Earthquake is a natural force, but what is happening in libya and other arabian countries is horrible, People shouldn't kill each other! their presidents' greed might even extinct the countrys' people only to stay in their thrones ! The world needs to know about these countries because those people are innocent and getting killed only because they want their rights!

You're obviously young, or perhaps not British/Scottish.

Libya used to export terrorism for decades. To the point of harbouring gunmen in their embassy and having a shootout with the London police. Recently(within the last year or so) a convicted Libyan terrorist who was purportedly dieing from cancer was released from the Scottish on "Humanitarian Grounds" only to get a Hero's welcome in Libya. The was one of the key planners and few captured and convicted culprits in an terrorist incident that dropped an entire passenger jet onto a scottish city, murdering several hundred people ... who probably cared about as much about Libya as you do. Enjoy your next international trip. Fly with confidence!

The world does know about these countries it's only ignorant teens who don't.
I'm not sure it's something so simple as "wanting their rights" the populations of these places have been happy to put up with their various dictator and Junta leaders for over half a century. I think they're mostly fed up because the economies suck. And are giving it a whirl because the first of these uprisings (Tunisia) was sucessfull.

Don't kid yourself that this is the start of democracy and western values in those countries though. It could all be just different flavours of Iran in the 70's when the people there god tired of the Shah and his brutal secret police...

... You all know how that turned out I hope.

It would be simple if the government cares about their people, but libya's situation is different. people need to face against their government in order to have their rights.
i do believe tunisia and egypt didn't take much time to have their freedom from the dictators.
Well, those discators keep forgetting that Hell is waiting them, not to forget that they won't rest peacefully in their graves.

Because the rich countries and everywhere else dont want to help libya they just want their oil it's as simple as that.
Japan is an ally of America and the UK so they would obviously care more for them but in Libya they just want the oil. Think of the stuff happening in Palestine why doesn't anyone care because they don't have any oil or else all the rich countries would have helped Palestine also because America is helping Isreal and because they need Jewish finances.

the world isn't fair because it's corrupted maybe the new generation will be able to make a change that's why i'm going to go into politics.

Though both are bad and I agree loss of human life isn't something to highfive over unless you yourself are in that war but Japan gives us a ton of stuff and keeps contributing to the world, not quite sure what Libya has done. Hell I didn't even know what was happening to Libya till a couple weeks ago but then again i am busy with college so. So i suppose that's my reason for caring more what happened to Japan.
