NY Times Reports on Libya’s “Terrorist” Rebels

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/11/world/africa/11benghazi.html?_r=1&hp

This very disturbing story indicates the deep trouble the USA has when we go around the world trying to topple foreign governments without having any clear idea as to who will replace the people we topple.  The Daily Beast labels this story troubling.  The writer of this blog labels it prophetic and alarming.  Once again, the USA may be promoting our own demise in the North African region by supporting people who say they are for USA but are merely thugs, and terrorists.  Throughout this who Obama Administration cowboy adventure in Libya, it has been the ordinary citizens of Libya who have suffered.  And please, bleeding hearts, do not whine that it is all Gaddafi’s fault.  The writer of this blog has repeated called attention to the illegal invasive aggression against the Libyan government perpetrated by USA, France and England.  Americans need to constantly remember that in this foreign cowboy movies it is not John Wayne who wins.  It is the usually extremists whose language we do not speak, who culture we do not understand, whose customs are unintelligible to us and whose religion is antithetic to our own.
