Libya’s Muammar Qaddafi stands between the United States and their campaign of destabilization and regime change across the oil laden region. Not only does this stall the Anglo-American agenda, it also sets a precedence of defiance other sovereign nations may duplicate under similar US-backed instability.
There is no doubt that the unrest in Tunisia, Egypt, and now Libya is US-backed. Libyan opposition leader Ibrahim Sahad of the National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL) is literally sitting in front of the White House in Washington D.C. giving interviews, repeating verbatim the talking points covered by propaganda outfits like BBC, CNN, Fox News, and Al Jazeera. Meanwhile, a myriad of US organizations are working in tandem with Sahad’s calls for UN, EU, US, and NATO intervention.
What form might intervention take and is there a possibility that US military support is already underway? According to Brookings Institute’s report “Which Path to Persia?” it is very possible military operations and support were planned well ahead of time.
That's from Tony Cartalucci's "US Intervention in Libya" (Dissident Voice). My thoughts? It really does look like war on Libya is being considered. As if the US isn't enough wars already. My feelings on it are if the people of Libya want to change their government, that's their business and more power to them. But I'm not for another war.
Especially one to replace another leader. Didn't we do that with Iraq?
Didn't we do that with Afghanistan?
How'd those turn out? Oh, that's right, they are ongoing.
Yeah, let's add Libya to that list of Wars That Bankrupt The Nation.
And then there's the fact of: SO WHAT?
Again, if the people of Libya want to revolt, their business and I won't stop them. But I'm sick of hearing about the new 'Satan' and all the effort they're going into (they being the press) yet again to try to enrage us.
You know who should have been revolted against? George W. Bush.
