  •  What hogwash. (0+ / 0-)
    The "third camp" politics espoused by the anti-ANSWER article are way off base. They are out of step with people in the U.S.—who polls show oppose the war on Libya 2-to-1—and they are out of step with the people of Libya, who just had a massive 250,000 person march against the NATO bombing this past week, as bombs were dropping around them. Civilian casualties of the NATO bombing are now mounting—even the LA Times and CNN are reporting this.

    It's amazing how deluded some people are...  250k Libyans protesting for Gaddafi?  Where?  In your mind? In la-la land?

    If anything even remotely similar to that had happened, we'd be seeing those images all over the place, and especially on Libyan propaganda tv, which the pro-Gaddafi Cynthia McKinney was oh-so happy to appear on.

    Cynthia McKinney has allowed herself to become a Gaddafi mouthpiece and is a terribly deluded lady.  It's no wonder that ANSWER blocked actual Libyans from your Cynthia McKinney, pro-Gaddafi event, as can clearly be seen in this video:

    As for McKinney, I think that Tasbeeh Herwees said it best:

    She’s the worst sort of person to be involved in the Libyan conflict: not only incredibly uninformed but deluded as well, having fully swallowed the lies of the Gaddafi regime as unalienable truths. Mckinney continues to defend Gaddafi as a ‘hero’ of African rights (we’ll talk about this more below) and refuses to acknowledge the crimes of his regime.  Her justification for doing so indicates a stunning ignorance on her part. Even as damning evidence of the Gaddafi regime’s unspeakable cruelty mounts against it—countless videos, photos and eyewitness accounts of citizens, journalists and others—Cynthia Mckinney stands by Gaddafi, recently making an appearance on Libyan State TV from Tripoli as part of an NGO “fact-finding” mission.
