The Libyan War? Bill Van Auken writes about it:
NATO formally ended its seven-month predatory war against Libya at midnight Monday, having achieved its aim of regime change and opened up the country to what its imperialist member states hope will be the unrestrained exploitation of Libya’s huge energy resources by Western oil companies.
Speaking in Tripoli at a joint news conference with Mustafa Abdul Jalil, head of the NATO-backed National Transitional Council (NTC), Monday, NATO’s secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, described the war as “a successful chapter in NATO’s history,” claiming that it had created “a new Libya based on freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.”
“Free Libya” lies in ruins. Much of its infrastructure has been destroyed and whole cities, like Sirte, the target of a barbaric NATO siege that ended barely one week ago, have been turned into ghost towns.And get what John Glaser reports: "Abdurraheem el-Keib, a dual US-Libyan citizen, has been elected prime minister of Libya by members of the National Transitional Council who voted in a televised event on Monday, sticking ballots into a transparent box."
Maybe there will be some outrage when the US tries to replace Fidel with a Cuban exile? Maybe not. It's all about giving Barack a pass and an excuse, right? Convictions and beliefs no longer matter. Just blindly cheering War Hawk Barack is what it's all about, right?
I don't think my side (the left) has ever been so craven before.
