    Kinda like Egypt, where we encouraged Muslim extremists to oust a U.S. friendly government.

    Re: Libyan rebels round up black Africans

    Which snide comparison to make, now?

    Do we highlight the information that sounds familiar with African of centuries past - drawing connections with this and the beginnings of Slavery in the Congo?

    Or do we highlight the other information that sounds familiar with Nazi-Germany of decades past - drawing connections with this and the beginnings of the Holocaust?

    Which one - do you think - would be more suitable?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    The new government has the right to make sure their new government will be secure. Now, they also have the right to deport them. Foreign citizens ALWAYS may be deported by the government at ANY TIME. They are guests. We don't know what they are going to do with them... perhaps only to verify that they are simply working and not fighting for the former dictator. We simply don't have enough information at this point.

    The future of that entire region looks bleak. You think al-Quaida is a bitch? Wait until you see the entire Middle East and Northern Africa ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood, except for Israel.

This is like the first negative thing on the rebels' side and the detractors are trying to make a big deal out of it. Gaddhafi was much worse and at least this is just rounding them up and holding them until they can figure out what to do with them, the US does that to suspected insurgents too.
    They are rounding them up on the sole basis of skin color. Surely you can understand how that is a bit different.

    Given the various reported instances of violence and outright murder of black Africans in rebel-held territories I am not terribly confident that they will mete out a fair ruling. Also, some of us have an understanding of democracy and liberty that does not include arbitrarily expelling any non-citizen the government likes without a legitimate cause. Being black is not a legitimate cause for expulsion.

    Re: Libyan rebels round up black Africans

    Let's understand one major thing.....Barrak Hussain Obama has given Millions upon Millions of U.S. Dollars to these Muslim Rebels.
    That is a very unstable country. And within a few months, I will say that Al-Quida will be involved, and part of their internal governing future.
    Rounding up all the Black's..Yep! - that is only one influence of Al-Quida's way.
