Re: Tripoli About to be Taken Over by Rebels

I'm a bit stunned no one is commenting on this. I've been waiting to see if anyone would. Maybe only some of us recall the 1980s and the Lockerbie bombing, among other things. This guy was as feared as any leader. But was soon forgotten with the "rise" of Saddam and Bin Laden.

So now in less than a year, Mubarak is overthrown and exiled, and Bin Laden and Gadhafi are dead. Unbelievable

Re: Tripoli About to be Taken Over by Rebels

Syria needs to be next.

Catching Qaddafy is a big moment not just for the Arab world but for the globe. It also is a huge moment for Libya, which has been marginalized by other countries, including Arab countries, for decades. Now Libyans can begin to join the mainstream of world culture and can have a democratic voice in their own affairs.

Gadhafi looks good in red

Quote:
Jeon bought an $800 one-way plane ticket from L.A. to Cairo two weeks ago, then snuck across the boarder into Libya. He of course has no actual affinity for the rebels: "At spring break I told my friends a 'sick' vacation would be to come here and fight with the rebels," he told a Christian Monitor reporter. And he is about as good a soldier as you would expect, according to the National:


Quote:
"How do you fire this thing?" he asked on Wednesday as a bearded rebel handed him an AK-47. Locating the trigger of the assault rifle and switching off the safety, Mr Jeon fired it in the air in two short bursts.
"I want to fight in Sirte!" he proclaimed, using hand gestures and pointing west towards Sirte. Whether the rebels understood him was far from clear. "It's hard to communicate. I don't really speak any Arabic," he said.


Also, good for Libya now that Qaddafi is dead.

Re: Tripoli About to be Taken Over by Rebels

Not sure what to say about this other than - - "Hooray!!"

Another dictator gone. I hope that the revolutionaries are able to set up a representative government and not another dime store "revolutionary council" that is simply a front for another tribal oligarchical autocracy.

Re: Tripoli About to be Taken Over by Rebels

This is how you win against dictators. Turn their people against them and help them not invade their country and invest in trillion dollars and countless American lives for ungodly amount of years without any help.

Another victory notch for Obama and co. They managed to do what a lot of administrations couldn't do....Give it up!

Yes. Obama deserves credit for what he did do...and what he didn't do...to bring about a desired result.

Re: Tripoli About to be Taken Over by Rebels


It's amusing to see Americans become squeamish and bewildered when they hear Sharia Law. A few facts...a) Lybia is 97% Muslim, b) all Muslim countries have some sort of Sharia law. Some are lax others are very strict. Some are mixed with common law, some are not, others have two court systems for common law and sharia law.

Now that we have the basic facts down we are left with one question, what kind of Sharia School of Law will they establish in Libya? Obviously whatever they establish be based on Sunni School of thought. Will they transition to the Hanafi school used in Pakistan and Turkey? Hanabali like the Saudis? Maintain their existing Mālikī school of law much like the rest of the north African countries? Or will they adopt Shafi'i which is used in east African and south east Asian Muslim countries?

Obama doesn't have to do anything to turn the people against their oppressive dictator. To attempt to coerce people into such a natural thing is futile. What Obama did was to protect the people and aid them any possible way. Operation Odyssey Dawn, read about it. Obama brought the initial planning and the most muscle but you already know all of this right?

Seems like pretty simple stuff. Some of which was talked about in the article.

It does seem like simple stuff and so I am left to ask "is this simple stuff news worthy?"

Besides Qaddafi being a miserable dictator economic conditions were the primary cause of the uprising and Obama did in fact instituted the sanctions on Libya that were lifted by GW. We also provided them with material support in food aid, air support, and medical supplies. That's called turning their people against them.
