WASHINGTON –– While White House and European leaders have repeatedly threatened a no-fly zone over Libya, mounting such a complex operation could require hundreds of aircraft and a bombing campaign to neutralize Libya’s air defense system, current and retired U.S. military officers said.

Although Libya’s military is considered no match for the U.S. and its allies, it would take such a large-scale Western military effort to establish the around-the-clock patrols over Libyan airspace needed to deter further attacks on rebels, the U.S. officers said.

“This is all doable,” retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Mike Dunn, the former vice director for strategic plans and policy for the Pentagon’s Joint Staff, said of creating a no-fly zone.

But, he added, “The simple fact of the matter is that it’s not simple.”

There is little evidence yet that consideration of a no-fly zone has moved beyond the conceptual stage in Washington or in European capitals, where officials seem to be hoping, at least for now, that the threat of a no-fly zone will deter the Libyan air force from attacking protesters.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said he had ordered his military to begin planning for such an operation. The White House also said Monday that a no-fly zone is under “active consideration.” But a senior administration official said the option would be chosen only in a narrow circumstance ó if Moammar Gadhafi sets off a large-scale humanitarian crisis with new air attacks against Libyans.

“If Gadhafi begins an all-out assault on the opposition, creates a humanitarian crisis, and it includes significant use of airpower, then that would be the kind of compelling situation that spurs the international community to take that step,” said the administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the discussions.

If a no-fly zone is eventually ordered, one of the biggest worries for U.S. planners would be Libya’s surface-to-air missile batteries along its coastline, especially its so-called SA-6 missiles, which though designed years ago by the Soviet Union are lethal enough to shoot down U.S. and European fighters, several analysts said.

Libya is believed to have roughly 50 SA-6 missiles, which are mobile and easy to move to avoid detection. Pentagon planners would likely seek to neutralize the SA-6s by warning Libya’s military not to target NATO aircraft but also with airstrikes against batteries that took threatening actions, such as activating their radar, the officers said.

Officials: Egypt didn’t catch Obama by surprise

WASHINGTON –– A top White House foreign policy official on Monday rejected the notion that President Barack Obama was caught flat-footed by the protests coursing through the Middle East, though he conceded that the speed with which old regimes collapsed came as a surprise.

Dennis Ross, a staff member on the National Security Council, told a conference hosted by the liberal pro-Israeli lobbying group known as J Street that the turmoil in Arab states illustrates that governments can no longer survive by repressing populations demanding change.

The Obama administration has been pressing this point since taking office, Ross said, telling Egyptian leaders they needed “to open their political system.”

That didn’t happen.

“Unfortunately, the Mubarak government chose not to heed those warnings, just as they did not recognize the magnitude of what was about to befall them,” Ross said.
But he suggested the U.S. and even some of the protesters also didn’t realize that Egypt’s government was so vulnerable.

Ross said that “no one predicted the speed at which the revolution in Egypt occurred. Many of us who followed Egypt for years looked at the omnipresent nature of the security apparatus and the level of repression and assumed that in fact change could come, but it would only come gradually and not overnight. Many of the Egyptian activists themselves assumed that, also.”

Since the fall of the Tunisian and Egyptian governments, Obama has faced widespread criticism that he ignored warnings that the old Arab dictatorships were increasingly unstable.

100,000 refugees flee Libya as fighting increases

CAIRO and BENGHAZI, Fighting between rebels and government loyalists in Libyan cities intensified Monday as the United Nations reported that more than 100,000 refugees had fled into Tunisia and Egypt over the last week to escape the bloodshed that had drawn international condemnation.

Rebels in the city of Misurata, about 120 miles east of the capital of Tripoli, reportedly shot down a government plane and pushed back an offensive by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to retake the city. In Zawiya, about 30 miles east of Tripoli, government forces surrounded rebels but had not forced them to retreat.

The fighting across Libya came as international concern over days of bloodshed deepened. Catherine Ashton, the foreign policy chief for the European Union, said: “What is going on with the massive violence against peaceful demonstrators shocks our conscience. It should spring us into action.”

French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said his country was dispatching planes carrying doctors and medical supplies to the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi. Meanwhile, the United Nations warned of a worsening humanitarian crisis as refugees, many of them migrant workers, fled into Tunisia and Egypt.

“We call upon the international community to respond quickly and generously to enable these governments to cope with this humanitarian emergency,” said Antonio Guterres, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees.

On Sunday, Zawiya, a city of 210,000 just 30 miles west of Tripoli, was shaping up to be a potential focal point for clashes as anti-government forces with tanks and anti-aircraft guns massed throughout the city center, and Gadhafi forces surrounded the outskirts with tanks and military checkpoints, residents said.

From the east, small bands of armed men traveled in the direction of the capital from Benghazi.

The developments in Libya occurred as the wave of unrest continued Sunday throughout North Africa and the Middle East, enveloping the usually sleepy gulf sultanate of Oman, where government forces were blamed for at least two protesters’ deaths.

But the world’s attention remained focused on Libya as military and civilian leaders in Benghazi, the city that gave birth to the uprising, said they had no immediate plans to send large groups of fighters to Tripoli to assist other rebels besieging the capital. Instead, individual fighters have gone on their own.
Khaled ben Ali, an organizer of the provisional government in Benghazi where the eastern uprising against Gadhafi erupted Feb. 17, said Sunday that a total of about 300 men were traveling in small groups in private cars, with little or no coordination among them or with protesters in Tripoli.

At a Benghazi army barracks, rebels collected weapons including anti-aircraft guns and Kalashnikov rifles taken from Gadhafi loyalists. There was continuous talk about going to Tripoli, but no serious effort had been mobilized, air force Col. Ahmed Omar said.

“Our bodies are here, but our hearts are in Tripoli,” he said. “We are thinking, the idea has been there since the first day Benghazi was liberated, trying to get to Tripoli.”

A few men phoned the provisional government center in Benghazi’s central courthouse Sunday to report that they had arrived on the eastern outskirts of Tripoli, Ben Ali said. But the vast majority of men have not been heard from since leaving Benghazi over the last several days, other officials said.

Most of the fighters are impassioned young men eager to play a role in deposing Gadhafi, who has ruled for 41 years. A few are soldiers who defected from Gadhafi’s army, Ben Ali said, adding that leaders of the rebellion don’t fully trust them.

Inside Tripoli, the situation was grim. Two-hour lines awaited people seeking bread or fuel. Official forces melted away to be replaced by young men or teenagers who were armed by Gadhafi, giving the city a sense of wild unpredictability.

“The city is controlled by these mad dogs. They make it absolutely impossible to enunciate any view against the government,” a sobbing 62-year-old businessman said by phone.

The Gadhafi government attempted to appease the uprising with an announcement on state television Sunday that $400 grants would be distributed to each Libyan family as part of the “beginning of the redistribution of oil wealth to Libyans.” But long lines of people at the banks were turned away.

Ask a lawyer: My roomie is horrible. How can I get out of my lease?

Let’s take it even further: Your roommate is deranged and deadly, like the character in the film “The Roommate,” playing now in theaters.

Deranged or horrible, a bad roommate does not give you legal grounds to terminate a lease. Think of it this way: in exchange for taking your rent, your landlord is required to provide you with a habitable space (basic quality of the physical space) and to not intrude upon you. Your landlord has absolutely no duty to make your interactions with your roommate tolerable, so you cannot use your roommate troubles to get out of obligations to your landlord.

Lately, there’s been an epidemic of serious roommate disputes in the CSU student population. If you’re in this situation, you have two choices: work it out and stay; or you or both of you leave and deal with the aftermath of breaking a lease.
Here’s the good news. When you break a lease, the landlord has a legal duty to “mitigate” or lessen the losses caused by the break. This means the landlord must take reasonable steps to re-rent the premises.

In the current market with high demand from renters and low vacancy rates, we expect landlords to be able to find replacement tenants relatively fast. Still, you have to expect to pay when you break a lease. You are responsible for the rent until a replacement acceptable to the landlord is in place, as well as the landlord’s other expenses like advertising and sometimes an extra tenant-change fee written in the lease.

There are many tricky issues when breaking a lease. For example, what if the remaining tenant doesn’t cooperate with selecting a replacement? What if the landlord refuses to take responsibility for mitigating? What if the landlord says you must continue to be responsible in case the new person turns out to be unreliable? What if you truly feel your life is in danger and you want to apply for a restraining order? Do you fit under the special law that allows a victim in an intimate relationship who has a police report or court order showing the domestic violence to get out of a lease with a lease break fee of only one month’s rent?

If you have to break a lease, do it right. Student Legal Services will help you make a plan and execute the break in the best way. You’ll need the right paperwork to protect yourself, which SLS will create for you. You can find more details at

If you’re not dealing with a murderous roommate a la Hollywood, consider mediating your disputes and salvaging the rest of the lease term. Contact the office of Conflict Resolution, 491-7165 in 325 Aylesworth Hall NW. The mediator there, Melissa Emerson, will even help you invite your adverse parties to the table.

Guest Column: Still life in death through photography

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Guest Column: Still life in death through photography
Feb 282011
Authors: Sam Noblett

The idea of legacy has been on my mind. On Feb. 13 my granddad, Timon Sinclaire, passed away from a brain tumor after a six-month struggle.

He was not only a loving member of my family, he sparked the interest in the one thing I’ve found that has given me direction in life.

When I was 10 he taught me how to load a roll of 35mm film into a developing canister. There was something exciting about the way the film felt as it slid onto the reel while standing in the dark. Long before that, I remember my granddad setting up his studio in the basement to do portraits of my family and me. I remember the large muslin background, the large format film camera and the flashing strobes.

This all led me to become interested in photography. The process was started then, but it took a long time for these ideas to take hold. Now I find myself setting up backgrounds and strobes to try to tell the story of another person.

It wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I truly found that I liked taking photos.

I played with a few borrowed cameras from other family members, and toyed with the standard cheesy red, black and white photos in Photoshop.

At the end of my senior year, people began asking me what I wanted for graduation.

After some thought, I decided that I wanted my first professional style –– or so I thought –– camera, a digital SLR. So I asked my granddad and that same day the two of us drove to a Ritz Camera up the hill from their house to buy my first camera — a Nikon D50.

I now find myself more than five years, multiple cameras, and hundreds of thousands of photos down the road. And for this I have my granddad to thank.
This may not have been his plan. His interest in photography was always a hobby to him; he was a building designer by trade. I have no idea if he ever considered photography as a profession –– he always loved what he did.

But without the interest he shared, I would not have found the one profession that seems to make sense to me.

I spent almost four years outside of high school pursuing photography as a hobby, like my granddad, until I decided that I needed to take it further. I made the leap to applying for a job at the Collegian. I now find myself wrapped up in an industry in which I think I belong. In less than two years I have moved from the position of staff photographer to next year’s editor-in-chief.

My granddad and I drifted apart those two years. Then Last September, I received a phone call saying that he had developed a brain tumor that was most likely inoperable. With this news I flew out to see him toward at the end of October.

Even with our separation leading up to last fall, we still had photo to talk about. Despite his stroke-like symptoms, he still had the life in him to talk about our shared love of photography.

What rings true in my mind from that weekend is what he said: “just keep snapping.”

I hope that I can honor what he gave me now that he has passed. I plan to do this through continuing to shoot photos for as long as I can still work a camera.

Venus vs. Mars: What makes someone undateable?

Just what is it that makes women decide if there will be an exchange of phone numbers? A second date, or even a first?

Is it the fact that he has cigarette-stained teeth or too long of hair? Or whether or not he has good taste in clothes? Or how often he talks to his mother each day?
Essentially, women analyze the little details against personality. For women, this is not new.

We’d all like to think women date men based upon personality and that personality ultimately is the deciding factor for a potential relationship. Interestingly enough, it’s the little, mundane things that will keep women away forever because these are the things that stick in your head –– like the sound of him tapping his fingers constantly or saying the word “bro.”

Guys, I think you would be surprised with the long list of citations you probably don’t even notice, which are keeping you home on the couch instead of next to a girl at a restaurant or movie. I was surprised too.

A junior biological science major told me she is annoyed if a guy uses incorrect spelling or grammar in text messages or on Facebook.

Another turnoff that I heard from a senior psychology major was if a guy wore Ed Hardy. I laughed pretty good after this one.

I was told several other hilarious answers, as well. Two sisters I talked to on the plaza said that if a guy wanted to date both of them, then that would not be desirable. Hear that, guys? Family members are off limits.

Another girl said that hairy chests are where she draws the line. Her friend said that she wouldn’t even consider a smelly guy.

There are tons of things that attract us men to you beautiful ladies. Whether it’s the way you carry yourself or maybe it’s how you take care of yourself. But whether you have all of those qualities, there are definitely some things that are deal-breakers.

First, we men do like our ladies to look presentable when in public, but too much damn make-up or too much tanning is a no-no! No one wants to date an oompa-loompa (is this Willy Wonka? Hell no! Get your crazy ass out of the tanning booth!).

Too much make-up should be the most obvious. You shouldn’t go from looking like Beyoncé to Rosie O’Donnell in one swoop of a washcloth. Caked-on shouldn’t apply to your face. Be liberal or be single.

Women who are constantly hard on themselves: “Am I too fat?” “Is she cuter than me?” No one wants to hear that bull! Like my friend Katt Williams would say ––It’s called self-esteem; esteem of yourself! Stop looking for your boyfriend to validate you.

We’re not shrinks and if I’m dating you, clearly I like you so stop asking me if I do. It’s irritating and you’ll probably be single very soon. You know who you are.
Next, close-minded women are a pain. And I’m not talking about sexually, you damn perverts. I’m talking about girls whose standards are too high. All women are beautiful in their own way, but when no guys are good enough for you, lower your standards because clearly you don’t meet your own.

Is that mean? Well I’m trying to care but nope, it’s a no go. Close-mindedness is not attractive. Get over it because if you think you’re too good, you’re probably not.

Speaking of girls who think they are too good, girls who have a big ego are not sexy. It’s okay to be confident but when you start thinking your’rebetter than anyone other girl in the plaza, it’s a complete turnoff. Most of the conceited women are only half as good looking as they think. They have entirely too much self-esteem.

Women and men alike can all benefit from some self-confidence and at the same time, a little humility.

Occasionally, I received several answers about how insecure, inconsiderate or egocentric guys are undesirable ­­–– but this was usually coupled with another of the previous turnoffs.

At the end of the day, not surprisingly, it was always personality traits that takes a back seat. Men, being smelly, the number one turnoff, is an easy fix. How about you go take a shower.

Drifting through the fake real world

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Drifting through the fake real world
Feb 282011
Authors: Jim Sojourner

I’m drifting through an artificial world.

My feet clip and clop and scrape on the path below, wearing the rubber thin on the heel of my hippie shoes as I shuffle through a landscape of concrete, glass and twisted, welded metal. Faux-rock buildings form broken canyon walls, casting shadows on my face and robbing me of the real warmth of afternoon sunshine.
I’m not alone here. People brush past, looking down at their feet or off to the side, some stealing glances at my shaded face, most not. Others, their hand glued to the side of their face, babble on in electronic conversation and seem to recognize little where they are at all.

Sometimes I am one of them, one of the wired masses wandering foggily through the mazes of this surreal world. Today, I am not.

But today, when I am not, I notice even the sound of my shoes on the ground seems shallow, the product of fake rubber against fake concrete, no more real than the planted trees imported to fill the empty gaps between the broken canyon walls where the real wind howls on breezy days.

Here and there, the real trees serve their false purpose, accenting the hibernating grass around the stilled waterfall that, when it’s warmer, gurgles out of its man-made home. The trees and grass and water, meant to make us feel serene in splashes of contrived nature, remind me today only of how out of place real things can be in such artificial places.

I realize the people who bustle by with darting eyes, flapping mouths and shuffling rubber shoes are also real things out of place. And I, with my vacant stare and shuffling rubber soles, am a real thing out of place.

Around me, real emotions flash across the faces of the real people. There, under the tree is frustration. There, in front of me, is joy in the melody of a couple’s laughter. There, on the bench, is pain and sadness, expressed in sopping sobs to an attentive friend.

But there, by the bike rack, is a woman who smiles and giggles as she gazes into her laptop’s pixilated abyss. And there, walking down the steps is a man whose grim expression is matched by the ripping guitar riffs that blare from the plastic headphones that nest in his ears like parasites.

The interplay between the real and the non-real, the organic and the constructed, sends my head spinning.

Do real trees and grass and water inject life into the dead husks of brick and metal constructs?

Can the joy of the laptop girl be as real as the joy of the jolly couple? Can the pain expressed with angry mp3 bytes be as real as the pain expressed with mucus-clogged sobs?

Do real people make fake landscapes any less fake?

Yesterday I thought so, maybe. Tomorrow I’ll think so, maybe. But not today.
No, today, the thin sound of my rubber shoes grating against the breaks my civilized rapture and clears my head.

Trees belong among trees and natural, waving grass and clear, flowing water, not as decorations to break the grey monotony of human-built canyons. And water that gushes from a fountain isn’t a waterfall at all.

And if real trees don’t belong among fake constructs, why do real people? The sun on my face and the wind whistling in my ears and rustling through my hair give me a sense of life, of reality, that buildings and electric lights can never.

The touch of a human hand against mine, the sound of their laughter or cries and the depth of thought in another’s eyes –– not speakers or screens or circuits or buildings or windows or rubber shoes –– make me feel and make me remember what it means to be human.

So as I float through this artificial avenue of falsity, I remember, at least for today, that my humanity is found in real things. It’s found in the wind and the trees and the waterfalls that remind me where I come from.

It’s found in the people whom I wish, instead of bustling by, would turn off their phones, computers and iPods, stop drifting by and sit with me among the real things to smile and laugh and remember who we are.

We have a polished turd

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on We have a polished turd

We, as a nation, have a responsibility to remove the shine from our history. Sunday, the last U.S. veteran of World War I passed away. Had U.S. foreign policy been less misguided, he may have been the last U.S. veteran of any war.
He wasn’t.

Franklin D. Roosevelt sits today atop the throne of modern politicians and specifically Democrats. They look to his domestic agenda, his ruthless threats to the Supreme Court –– pass my legislation or the Senate and I will start adding justices until I have the ratio I want –– and his highly successful manipulations to ensure re-election as aspirational achievements.

There’s a problem. Democrats today paint themselves as the party of peace. This is disingenuous at best, but in truth, it is an outright lie.

FDR was the last president to sign a war declaration, meaning we have not been in a formally declared war for 70 years. Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War, Desert Storm, Afghanistan and Iraq; in every circumstance, Congress abdicated their responsibility to put a check on the Oval Office, and in most cases, they enabled the president to entrench the country in drawn-out occupations.

Far be it from me to criticize the elite of the citizenry, I mean, what right do I have to question the oligarchy’s track record of a galactic level of failure and stupidity?

As for the subject of Democrats and their newly found platform of peace, take a quick jaunt through the history books to discover their abysmal record.

World War I? Wilson. World War II? Roosevelt. Korea? Truman. Vietnam? Kennedy. Cold War? Truman again. Desert Storm? Bush. Afghanistan? W. Iraq? W. Over the course of the 20th century and into the first five years of the 21st, war-mongering Republican presidents accounted for three of eight major “conflicts.”
What these snapshots do not reveal is why these conflicts came about. Most of the secondary conflicts taking place as a part of the Cold War led to a series of critical unintended consequences, specifically in the Middle East. To be fair to those on the left who feel I am unfairly criticizing their demi-god FDR and the rest of his minions, those on the right have a highly distorted view of “the Gipper” Ronald Reagan.

Under his watch and command, the U.S. covertly supported two countries in conflict with either Soviet allies or the Soviets.

In December 1979, Soviet forces overthrew Afghanistan’s government and began an occupation that ultimately terminated when, with covert support from our very own CIA, the Mujahideen finally drove the Russkies insane and the Soviets left.
The problems started when U.S. support departed along with them, leaving a vacuum at the top the Taliban readily filled. We know how a great deal of that story played out, but we still do not know the end.

Not 12 months later, a war between Soviet-supported Iran and U.S.-backed Iraq kicked off, not ending for almost a decade.

Any questions as to how that story went? Here’s the unnerving part: The attacks of 9/11 can be tied to Iraq, but not for the reasons claimed by the Bush administration.

Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990; the Saudi Royal family rightfully believed Saudi Arabia was next so Osama Bin Laden offered to bring his Taliban and Al Qaeda fighters to defend the Kingdom. The Saudis declined; they received a better offer, which left him angered.

U.S. forces remained surrounding Iraq up to, including and now after 9/11. Turkey, Kuwait, Greece, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Egypt all hosted U.S. forces. Yet, students last week called for the president to intervene in Libya.

Folks, you really do not want that. Sometimes things just have to happen in ugly ways; it’s better that they work themselves out than have a heavy-handed moron get involved.

Who in D.C. understands this?

Our View: Advocate on Advocacy Day

Feb 282011
Authors: Collegian Editorial Board

It was exciting to hear that on Monday, Advocacy Day, your student government took a band of 45 students down to the Capitol to lobby on your behalf.

After coffee and introductions, the morning started with greetings from legislative delegates from Fort Collins and Pueblo, followed by observation of debate on the House and Senate floors and Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia’s report on the state of higher education.

Then from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., the collection of students –– from CSU-Pueblo and Fort Collins –– set out to find legislators to whom they could advocate on behalf of CSU and the prolonged life and success of higher education.

But rather than send small groups of people to scheduled, intimate meetings with our politicians, the Associated Students of CSU –– from three to 20 strong at a time –– rushed the Capitol, carrying lists of assigned contacts.

Hunting during the politicians’ lunch hour, the collective group had upward of “two-minute” conversations with an estimated 30, according to ASCSU Legislative Affairs Director Matt Strauch, who said the goal wasn’t to have “multiple hour-long” talks.

Thousands of hours of debate and infinite brain cells have gone into the sculpting and bronzing of higher education’s future only to build the shattered, hollowed budget that sustains it.

To protect what little life is left, our student government representatives need to multiply and strengthen their efforts on Capitol Hill. The appropriate tactic here is not to ambush the people who pull the strings for one day but rather, make monthly trips consisting of lengthy, more pointed conversations.

Sure it’s great to show our legislators that literal swarms of students care, but add to that agenda, ASCSU, a more calculated, organized approach that consists of true advocacy for the CSU we know you love.
