NATO have been bombing Libya relentlessly for six months and have now announced a 90 day extension to their bombing campaign. On whose authority you may ask? NATO don’t ask for authority, they bomb their way to it. Anyway, having declared victory, they have pledged to continue the war. If you are happy with the logic of that, you won’t be interested in joining our anti-NATO protest. If NATO step up the bombiing when they have won, what will they do when they’re losing. The truth, of course, is that they haven’t won and must continue the campaign until all resistance to the puppet government, which they haven’t yet been able to install, is crushed. That is probably impossible since the Libyan people and the Libyan army are maintaining fierce resistance under the leadership of the dictator they are supposed to hate so much.

And so we have started yet another war. Another war to topple a dictator as we call someone who wouldn’t bow to our dictates. Libya’s political system may not have been perfect but, by general consent, it served to advance the development of Libya and the welfare of its people. But it didn’t live up to our very exacting standards and, therefore, had to be destroyed.
