    Re: Libyan Rebels Advance Into Central Tripoli

    Aww, some people on the news are saying this is the happiest day of their lives. They are saying the rebels represent them and aren't paid, but they are defending Libya.

    Benghazi Erupts With Joy as Rebels Advance in Tripoli - Dispatch - WSJ
    By Muneef Halawa

    Amid the rebel advances against Col. Gadhafi’s stronghold in Tripoli, the rebel-held heartland of Benghzai erupted with joy overnight at what appeared to be a quick victory by the opposition forces in the capital.

    Hundreds of cars crammed the streets of Benghazi, with drivers honking their horns and passengers waving the rebel flag. “Your day has come, Gadhafi, your day has come,” they chanted as cars flooded the streets.

    Crowds congregated around the city’s famous seafront courthouse, chanting “Allah is Great” and “We are one voice united.” They urged Libyan soldiers to drop their weapons and join the rebels in the capital Tripoli to present bloodshed.

    “This is our revolution,” said Zainab Al Houni, a 27-year-old old expatriate who returned to Libya from Paris to witness the end of the Gadhafi regime.

    Wow, I am just wondering how much longer their victory will be.

    The most censorship by the Lamestream media on any particular subject in some time. All the liberal talk hosts hope to ignore the subject and then hope for a quick Obama victory. Then, they will all in unison boast a victory for the Party and defend this horrendous illegal invasion, saying "See - the Preznit made the right decision."

    It's like the GOP wasn't jumping his ass for not getting involved in the first place.

    Re: Libya: Gaddafi faces final battle as fighting erupts in Tripoli

    While I'm glad that Gaddafi will finally be gone and I'm hopeful that this means that we can extricate ourselves from this messy situation as soon as possible, I'm deeply pessimistic that the new Libyan government will form anything resembling a functional democracy anytime soon. Either they'll become dictators allied with the United States (in which case it won't be long before they're regarded in the same low esteem as Hosni Mubarak), or they'll become America's newest enemy which we'll regret assisting just like we do with Saddam Hussein or the Taliban.

    I don't see any conceivable way that a democracy is formed and sustained. The combination of oil money, a lack of civil institutions, and a history of totalitarianism doesn't bode well for aspiring democrats.
