    I can’t understand what was the idea of that revo in Libya against Qaddafi. Far from being an angel the guy was in charge. What now? There’s neither stability, nor democracy in Libya! There’s only some fishy interim regime where they are busy sorting it out with each other.
    Meanwhile the armed fighters are dangerously uncontrollable. They have begun real hunt on Qaddafi’s supporters. Those poor things that are seized are often subject to merciless torture! They may be also killed without any prior court proceedings. According to the UN data as much as 10 Qaddafi’s supporters have been held by the fighters.
    Clear thing, Amnesty International has been sounding the alarm over this abuse of human rise and lack of order in Libya. Imo they’d rather have done this earlier ... when the mutilated body of Gaddafi himself was widely shown on TV as some amusing show.... in absence of any relevant reaction of the so called civilized community.......

    The important issue was that Libya was no threat to the US. NATO means never having to say you are sorry. Bill Clinton attacked the defenseless country of Yugoslavia with NATO bombers to deflect attention from his sexual peculiarities and Barry used NATO to advance the interests of the Muslem brotherhood. NATO means neither Barry Hussein nor Bill Clinton is liable for prosecution for manslaughter and both presidents are immune from scrutiny from the friendly left wing media.

    Unless someone here has lived in Libya under Gaddafi we won't really know why the people there rose up either, may want to check with some Libyans and ask them.

    Coalition Led by Pro-Western Official Claims Lead in Libya
    July 8, 2012 — A coalition led by a Western-educated political scientist appeared on Sunday to be beating Islamist parties in Libya’s first election of the post-Qaddafi era, standing apart from an overwhelming Islamist wave sweeping across neighboring Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco in the aftermath of the Arab Spring uprisings.

    Dear, dear... how easily pleased Western propaganda consumers are... One has to show them a circus with a box and a bit of paper and they are happy!

    What "elections"?! What "government"?! A "government" that does not control even the former capital of a former state?

    Already yesterday they were shooting each other in Tripoli! As for the rest of former Libya, it's back to where it was before Gaddafi united it: tribe against tribe...
