SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, R-ARIZONA: Somewhere, Chris Stevens is smiling. This is what we knew -- what Chris Stevens and I and others knew about Libya. Chris Stevens and I were in Tripoli as I'm sure your correspondent was on the night of July 7th after they had voted in overwhelming numbers to reject Islamists.
Thousands were in the downtown and Chris and I were down there. And as they drove by by the thousands said thank you especially to Chris Stevens, thank you, America. Thank you. And they obviously overwhelmingly wanted to reject this radical Islam, which has committed such a horrible crime. And I'm very happy about it.
Could I just mention one thing? It's interesting it comes when a few hours from now, we're going to have a vote on a Senator Rand Paul amendment to cut off all aid and assistance to Libya. This shows how ill-founded and frankly bad idea that Senator Paul and the isolationists have.
True - not usually But this civil war happened for more than one reason - and the opportunists don't run the show - yet If the people of Libya are going to make their stand - they have to make it now My money is on them
Libya has cracked down on its powerful militias following a mass protest against the armed group believed to be behind the deadly attack on the US mission in Benghazi earlier this month. German commentators on Monday praise the development, but question what it will mean for the country's future.

So if we assume that the all2human is referring to this article from the British newspaper The Guardian as "biased or misleading in nature", I would have to assume that someone in the British power structure must be profiting from such information. Who do you think would profit from such information in the British government? No one I would think.
Otherwise, calling it propaganda makes no sense. None whatsoever.
I believe the Lydian people are smart enough to know whats up, and what to do, and in most cases it just seems to be making the best with the situations you are given.
And the opportunists, well they will have less opportunities overall...
...and most importantly, we could probably even get at some important problems instead of the drama that is sticking our noses in places were we really do not even care about...I mean sh*t how many US citizens do you think even know were Libya is? Oh I am sure they know why were there, after all its all over the pictotubes, but if you asked them to point to it on map. How do you think that would go
