The War in Libya

“The Libyan Revolution is Dead” declares Maximilian Forte in his Zero Anthropology Blog.

…this is an autopsy, identifying the weapons used, and the criminals responsible for killing the Libyan revolution. This is no longer a Libyan story–that chapter is now closed. My autopsy is divided into several broad categories of actors: the humanitarians, the rebels, the international organizations, the mass media, and the Americans. Finally, what we should be watching in the coming days, weeks, months, and years

  1. The death of Gaddafi must serve as a lesson to other leaders espcially in africa once elected as a leader, taking the people of God for granted is very unwise,power is not in the president but in the hands of people, col, Gaddafi was calling his people rats but eventully he dead like one.

    Mugabe watch out!

  2. I call on the National Transitional Council and opposition foecrs to ensure the protection of civilians, to fully respect international human rights and humanitarian law and to act with responsibility in the interests of maintaining peace and stability throughout the country.And if they don’t? Then what? Perhaps more bombers could be dispatched to protect civilians. Whatever happens in Libya now is the responsibility of the European nations that brought this about. They can’t just walk away. Well, in fact they can walk away, and they probably will. The bloodless high-altitude operation is over. Now soldiers would be required, and who is going to carry that burden? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? So if I were you, I would get used to hearing politicians and high commissioners and other bureaucrats calling on Libya to respect human rights, because you’re going to hear that call a lot in the future. In the meantime, I shall patiently wait for 100 flowers to bloom in Libya now that Gadhafi is gone. carl
