at highly politicized times like this i want to make grand socio-political statement but i can't say that ever gets me anywhere. just makes me feel like i'm trying to be objective about things nobody can be objective about. that is left up to other people with other minds.
i am struck over and over again recently by how much i create my reality by my thoughts/mindset/attitude. i am responsible for it. i tend to want to put off a bad mood on my situation, my job, problems but in this very isolated situation i've realized that nothing is outside me. every moment is an act of creation, how much i put into it, how much i pay attention.
any situation can have a negative tint or a positive tint. all the time the problem is created in mind.
grand statement: everyone should be dropped in the middle of nowhere for a couple of months with little to distract them. few obstacles aside from own mind. this is especially good for self-obsessed, neurotic, 20 something year olds who live in a city.
everyone will then realize they are their own enemy. all of the things that one dislikes in others will be found to actually originate from oneself.
not so fun to figure this out as now one is responsible for ones own situation.
like a walkabout in australia.

NATO takes over command of military operations in Libya

[b]NATO is taking over command of military operations in Libya from coalition forces, world media reported Sunday.[/b]

The UN Security Council imposed the no-fly zone over Libya on March 17, along with ordering "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on rebel-held towns.

The 28 NATO ambassadors met on Sunday to decide on further military plans in Libya.

The United States transfers command for a no-fly zone over Libya to NATO, while coalition forces will continue to protect civilian population from attacks by Gaddafi forces.

The military operation in Libya, codenamed Odyssey Dawn, has been conducted so far jointly by 13 states, including the United States, Britain and France.

NATO members decided on Thursday to assume responsibility for the enforcement of a no-fly zone in Libya, but could not agree on taking full command of all military operations in the country.

Meanwhile, leaders of the 27 European Union states on Thursday issued a statement saying the EU stood ready to assist in building a new Libya "in cooperation with the United Nations, the Arab League, the African Union and others."
