  •  Of course the "mission" isn't over (0+ / 0-)

    And it won't be over until the US and its NATO puppets install a corrupt, brutal, and obedient client government willing to sell out the Libyan people and protect the interests of western corporate investors. You know. Like they're still trying to do in Iraq and Afghanistan.

      By "NATO puppets" do you mean the majority of Libyans who took up arms to overthrow a 42 year dictatorship starting a month before NATO got involved?

      By calling them puppets, aren't you really saying they are too stupid to understand their real situation as well as you do?

      After all puppets don't have a brain and only move when the puppet master pulls the strings. Is that your opinion of the Libyan people that have seen maybe 30,000 killed by Qaddafi, not by NATO bombs.

      From Democracy Now this morning.

         Interestingly, traveling across the country, there aren’t that many—that much evidence of bombed-out sites within Libya, bombs by NATO. I saw a few areas where no civilians were living, no people were living. These are just infrastructure outside on the outskirts of Misurata. And within Gaddafi’s compound, certainly, there were some areas that were bombed out. And there were dozens, perhaps hundreds, of civilians who were killed in these attacks until now.

    •  You got any facts to back up that statement.... (5+ / 0-)

      ...or is it just conjecture and empty rhetoric?

      Because I sure don't hear any Libyans whom I know worrying about Libya becoming like Iraq or Afghanistan...

      And why should Libya become like Afghanistan, pray tell?  Those two countries have very little in common.
