Independent media arises in Libya in the midst of the revolution.

This is one of the most amazing reports I have ever seen.

Thanks for posting... 17.Mar.2011 17:43

Fan of DN!

Amy Goodman and Democracy Now has been a staunch supporter of Libyan revolution. Let's hope the U.N. No-Fly Zone grounds Gaddafi warplanes.

There isn't that much oil involved.

Russia and China could have easily blocked this. They could have easily sold S-300 air defense missiles to Iran too.

Rather, the plush red carpet has been rolled out. Come for it! The casino pit bosses await! Our turn to roll the pricey dice!

Soon, our fanciest B-3 will be rolling to Russia in a big truck.

Yes, check out the Right Wing wingnut 18.Mar.2011 00:28

Security Council

This wingnut who has been posting pro-Gaddafi comments, and opposing aid to rebels, has posted voice over in above youtube comment. His identity is "108morris108" in other youtube videos -- check them out. He is anti-jewish, anti-multicultural, anti-genderequity, among other things.

Oh, by the way, he does't think the U.N. protecting 1,000,000 people in Bengazi from Gaddafi warplanes is worthwhile. Because other bad guys (western imperialists) will just subvert the revolution anyway.

Some Say Qaddafi Provides The Best Education, Free Medical Care In Africa 18.Mar.2011 01:07

Some don't. SOMEBODY is supplying the Libyan "rebels" with machine guns, anti-aircraft artillery, etc, etc.

But some say Qaddafi gives the oil money back to the people. We can't have any of that, now, can we?

Who cares about "right wing"/ "left wing" mind games? Why can't we all enjoy (approximately) equal wealth? Why not be equalitarian?

When the rich are gone, the wars will be gone.

Why do we need another war anyway? Will the rich pay for it? (Of course not.)

"Let's hope the U.N. No-Fly Zone grounds Gaddafi warplanes. "

Uhh, yeah, I don't think either DN nor activsts in America OR Libya want foreign intervention in a civil war... So no, please no no-fly zones (acts of war which will kill tons more civilians than Khaddafi can).
