  1. I think that it is a shame and a disgrace to our country that the only relatively objective reporting available to us has to come from a Russian news service. NATO will probably succeed, but I am waiting for the reporters to come out of their hidey holes and see what the true reality is. If the history of revolutions replays here, there will be months more of violence and reprisals. We do not even know who these “revolutionaries” are that we are supporting, much less what they plan on doing.

    i don’t understand why people keep saying that. the members of the national transition council have been in the public eye for almost six months. there’s a ton of information about all of them. ali tarhouni (the NTC’s finance minister) is a professor at the university of washington school of business and you can even look at his C.V. online!

    obviously, we don’t know what will happen in libya. any time a government is overthrown there is a great danger that the country will descend into chaos, the values professed by the rebels will be betrayed, a brutal dictator will wrest control of the country, rebel groups turning on each other and fighting over the remains, massacres, etc. all of that could definitely happen in libya. but it’s ludicrous to say that “we” don’t know who the rebels are just because you are not personally familiar with libyan politics. i mean, there’s a fairly detailed wiki page about who is in charge. if no one really knew anything about them, how did wiki get all their names and details about some of their backgrounds? and why have i been watching interviews with them for most of this year? there are plenty of shadowy groups in the world, but you can’t find this kind of information on them!
