If this young Libyan is correct, then the latest Empire invasion may be its Waterloo, or at least, a decisive turning point that will dramatically change the future chain of international events. Cracks are definitely appearing in the ranks of political actors within the Empire.
“What your American government has done in the region to destroy yourselves since 9/11 is amazing to Libyans. Now you are going to fight us?The world was shocked when poorly armed Hizbollah led the Lebanese to fight the US armed-to-the-teeth Israelis to a draw a few years ago. Just think what inspiration other insurgents will get from a NATO defeat in Libya?
You already had all our oil you wanted at a bargain prices, we stupidly put our sovereign funds in US banks and we did not even bother Israel much. Every day that NATO bombs it kills more Libyan civilians.
We sacrificed nearly 1/3 of our population or more than one million of our brothers and sisters expelling the Italians 70 years ago. Doesn’t anyone in your government study history? We are not Bahrainis or Syrians. We are armed and will use our weapons. Among the errors our leadership has made, one of the worst is that it believed the US agreements we made in 2004. The Iranians and North Koreans laugh at us for trusting you and giving up nuclear and biological weapons programs. Believe me dear, if Qadaffi leaves power you will miss him because the Libyan people will be tougher against your projects than he has been.”
