Forum Post: What's really happening in Libya?

Even with the Libyan rebels being known for slaughtering blacks in Libya simply for being black, and the rebels now have a makeshift prison system where the rebels are holding blacks by the thousands, Obama supporters still try and argue with me that the Libyan rebels are good people and that Obama was right to help them. Sorry but it seems like Gaddafi was replaced by another form of a Gaddafi. A little reminiscent of when the US supported the Mujahideen and the Afghan Arabs in the 1980's in Afghanistan.

Murder and persecution is still happening in Libya. But in a different way. If we're going to be the world police, we need to step up our game and assess situations properly. Hopefully Libya can work this out. But with the rebels taking all of Gaddafi's military weaponry, the civilians targeted by the rebels don't have much of a chance to fend for themselves in NATO bombed cities. Helping the "rebels" was not the right path. If intervention was the path to take, I think they should have thought about their footing on the path a little longer.

The Libyan rebels fought for freedom (democracy ) something the west will not allow them to have. This revolution is a foothold for the us to install its own dictatorship. At 1.5 million barrels a day the oil will last for 80 years. The us isn't world police- Its military is to conquer the world and keep its people oppressed making its corporations and 1% very rich.

"The Libyan rebels fought for freedom (democracy ) something the west will not allow them to have."

Bullshit. The West gave the rebels the opportunity to throw the Ghaddaffi regime out and usher in an era of democracy. It was precisely in support of the democrat aspiration of Libyan rebels that the support was given. The rest was up to them.

The West did not dictate that the rebels, once victorious, must follow any Western model of government. There was such a hope, but there was, and should not have been, such a demand. That would have been imperialism.
