Well, by now all of you good people know that the "no fly zone"bullshit and the attendant air strikes by the newest "coalition" of the all too willing has begun. France claims to have made the first of the air strikes against Libyan air defenses and other targets.
Yes, this is most disappointing to say the least. However, there is one other thing that I saw that is an even larger disappointment. Worse than another "war" or, as it has been billed by some, a "humanitarian intervention"? Yes, worse that that. It was an interview on al-Jazeera/English between two al-Jazeera reporters on the main set. One of the reporters was Marwan Bishara. What is bothersome to me, is that I respect him as an honest person/reporter. He was going on and on how it was "needed" that Gaddafi get pushed out of power as he was using military force against his own people. Marwan, excuse me sir, but why not bomb TelAviv, or Manama, or Sanaa? The Zionist entity has and still does, bomb the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank. Do you not remember that vile "Operation Cast Lead" sir? And what about in Yemen, where the leader of that country has and still does, allow his military and security forces to kill any protestors? Or how about Bahrain sir? The ruler of that island country has even "invited" Saudi troops to enter his country to assist in stopping, aka killing, the protests there? In short sir, you seem to have a very selective disgust with the leaders you feel should be done away with.
Very disappointing sir, very disappointing indeed. While I will continue to monitor al-Jazeera, as it is still better than what is "standard fare" for America, your "star" has certainly been dimmed some.
Just my own very personal 2 cents worth on this.
For the record, I DO think that Gaddafi has over stayed his "welcome" as the leader of Libya. I wish the Libyan people the very best and hope they are successful in getting the old colonel to step down before many more people are killed and wounded. I hope they are able to form the government they want, without being taken over by any outside peoples, such as the US or the EU.
