As with other people on these topics any type of information that comes out that doesnt support their argument is dismissed and labeled western
propoganda. I still yet to have Agent actually tell us what he considers a valid source.
Now, if the information in the article supports their view, then its taken as being reliable.
What they seem to miss is the fact that the people started the uprising, and its not just Libya. Apparently its difficult for some to accept the fact
that an uprising by the people can be successful without the US / West direct involvement.
Libya will survive and the people will get the government they want, one that represents them, or we will see the same issue we now see in Egypt. The
people are demanding change of the Egyptian leadership since they have not delivered on promises.
I think Egypt is entering phase II of the revolution, the power struggle phase where we find out which faction rises to the top after the Night of the
Long Knives. Libya isn't that far along yet, they are still in the euphoria between the stages, but they will eventually follow, Syria is still in
the initial phase, the "People's War" against the government. Should Assad bite the dust, Syria will follow the same progression.
For all of this baloney about "democracy on the march" and "Arab springs" I think folks are about to get a rude awakening as to what it is they
are REALLY wishing for in the form of a rude wakeup call, and an explosively destabilized Middle East - something like we had in Central America a few
years back, but more focused and inimical to western interests.
I believe that western efforts to "install democracy" where democracy is anathema will have severe unintended consequences.
