  •  Some more fun poll findings (0+ / 0-)

    from that same dubious poll:

    81%(!) of Libyans have "total trust" in the NTC!

    57% think the Muslim Brotherhood should play no role in Libyan politics

    Oh, and this one, from the same poll but not in the previously linked summary (I wonder why):
    "Libyans would prefer one-man-rule over democracy "
    http://www.ox.ac.uk/...

    Do you really believe any of these "findings"? If you believe the last one then obviously "dictatorship" (or "elections" for that matter) was never the problem. It's just different sects pissed off that the other guy, and not their guy, is the dictator (or King, as the rebels would tend to prefer it).
