This is a call for the
something. At present, the US is standing
passive and looking confused. In time it
will need to act in support of a new regime.
For the present been passive may just be the best answer. The Libyan people seem to be able to get the
job done and they need the esteem builder.
The Arab peoples elsewhere also need to see it unfold that way. US
Also we really do not want to rush in every time someone hits the bricks
Most everyone knows where the presidential palaces are and need no help to place pressure on the regime. The best an outsider can do is to assist in the escape. Actual intervention means that you end up owning the problem as was done in
Yes, we need to come out in favor of the people’s revolution now. This is the only president in the past forty years who seems to have to think about it at all in this particular case. This homicidal maniac ordered the Lockerbie atrocity and many others because he could. He only had second thoughts after Reagan reached out and touched him with an air strike. He only listened to wiser heads when his own sons grew up and finally convinced him of the stupidity of his ways.
Land relief and aid support in the east and do not worry about arms. They are moving freely enough right now.

Action in Libya

Muammar Qaddafi’s goal is obvious: If he goes down, he wants to bring
He wants the day he falls to be remembered as a day of bloodshed, not of joy.
His fighter jets are firing on protesters and a new report says he
has ordered the destruction of his country’s oil facilities, which would
eliminate 75 to 90 percent of the next government’s revenue and
make the world feel his pain as oil prices skyrocket. It is time
for the Libya
to step in. U.S.
President Obama finally made a statement yesterday about the uprising in
saying the violence is “outrageous and unacceptable” and that the
government had a “strong responsibility to refrain from violence.” As for
a response, no specifics were offered beyond: “We are reviewing a variety of
options with our international partners…” Libya
President Obama should have called for Qaddafi’s resignation days ago. If Hosni Mubarak qualified as a leader unworthy of office, then Qaddafi surely does as well. Yet, in the speech, Qaddafi’s name was not even mentioned. The Obama administration has made improving the image of the
a top objective of its foreign policy but its failure to decisively side with
the people dying for the rights we cherish is tarnishing it. It is time to
unequivocally stand in favor of the Libyan revolution. U.S.
As Paul Wolfowitz points out, the Arab world is seeing a connection between the unengaged attitude of the
and Secretary of State Clinton’s 2009 meeting with one of Qaddafi’s sons. The
Libyan ambassador to the U.S. U.S.
has turned on Qaddafi and is cautioning the
that its current posture gives the appearance to the Arab world that the West
“has only a materialist mind—they don’t care about human rights…except when it
comes to their own interest.” The Arab and Muslim world, he said, “[won’t] trust U.S.
or the West if they behave that way.” America
U.S. and its
allies should immediately reach out to any non-Islamist party or opposition
leader in ,
including the tribal chiefs, to begin forming a transitional government. This
expression of confidence that Qaddafi will not last will do much to motivate the
Libyan people. This transitional government, if put together before the
dictator falls, should be given authority over liberated territory like Libya . Benghazi
The military and police who have defected can become part of the new security forces that can prevent anarchy, and elements of the regime that have embraced the revolution should be welcomed. Through this government, the West can deliver humanitarian supplies to bring relief to the conflicted areas. The creation of this body would help non-Islamist forces organize for the day when elections are held and would make for as smooth of a transition as possible.
must take the lead in the international community in warning that the names of
anyone carrying out violence against the protesters are being collected and
they will be prosecuted. The assets of any official who has not turned against
Qaddafi should be frozen. Fighter jets being used to fire upon the Libyan
people can be shot out of the sky, especially if Libyan airspace must be
entered to evacuate staff and citizens. The mere threat of this would cause
most, if not all, of the fighter pilots to go AWOL. The alternative is to watch
Libyan protesters get massacred while they ask why the U.S. does
nothing and time is given to Qaddafi to destroy his oil infrastructure. U.S.
