Yesterday was the official one-year anniversary of the “February 17th Revolution,” the Libyan rebellion against the rule of Moammar Qaddafi, with a massive helping hand from NATO.

January 2, 2012

We will never know the artists, poets, and peacemakers who have never lived because their parents were killed in senseless wars. Imagine walking or driving through Kansas City, Kansas, or Syracuse, N.Y., or Rockford, Illinois, and knowing that every single man, woman, and child living in one of those cities represents a person who is […]

The current head of the NATO-installed Libyan National Transition Council (NTC), Mustafa Abdul Jalil, a long-term CIA favorite, recently announced that men in Libya will be allowed four wives because the “New Libya” is going to strictly follow Sharia law and four wives is what the Koran allows.

War in Libya a Failure

October 25, 2011

Seven months after NATO’s misguided war in Libya began, Moammar Gadhafi has been killed. Conventional wisdom seems to be that this outcome has proved the intervention to be right because it “worked.” However, far from vindicating the decision to attack Libya, Gadhafi’s bloody end represents much of what was wrong with the intervention from the […]

September 4, 2011

On April 30th, in a televised address, Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi pled, “Why are you attacking us? Why are you killing our children?

All night in central Tripoli one heard mainly celebratory gunfire from the nearby newly renamed “Martyrs Square” (formerly ‘Green Square’) but so many questions are on most people minds this morning. Most hotel staff at my hotel appear crestfallen. Some ask, are the Qaddafi forces opening a trap for the rebel forces allowing them to […]

July 6, 2011

US congressman Dennis Kucinich is sponsoring legislation in the United States Congress to end US military involvement in Libya for the following reasons: First, the war is illegal under the United States constitution and our War Powers Act, because only the US Congress has the authority to declare war and the president has been unable […]
