Sarkozy wins but the UN loses and a little bit more of our freedom is gone.

  1. This is probably the end.  And I am probably one of only a handful that is sickened by this sham.  Please note the AP reporter acknowledges that Paris, (Sarkozy) has always backed the rebels.  Also note that the AP reporter finally acknowledges that the internal rebellion is a “…carefully orchestrated plan by Paris that had a code name and was set in motion many months ago…”  So we ask, what was all of this…it was as this writer has repeatedly said,”… a carefully orchestrated military campaign against the internationally recognized government of Libya.”  The military campaign used the European (read non Arab) military alliance known as NATO.  Essentially, the military campaign was a war for oil.  It was more overt and definitely less enlightened then the Bush war for Iraq.  Nonetheless, the NATO military alliance used a compliant United Nations as a cover for the illegal war for oil.  A war which by every civilized definition was illegal and an egregious act of criminal aggression by the USA, France and England.   Granted there are many who see this NATO based rebellion as an act of freedom.  It is not.  Rather, it is a despicable action of a European military alliance against a singular nation.  It was bullying at its highest level.  It was many nations fighting illegally against one single north African nation.  Well, it seems to be over now, so who cares?  We all should care, that we allowed the USA to be part of the overthrow of a sovereign and Internationally recogised government.
