Sounds to me that the protestors want all foriegn people out of there and all journalists to go home. Sounds to me that they want to build a country of independence, not a puppet regime.

These people want freedom it appears, not a new US self serving puppet Government.

threatened safety in a lawless country like Libya is news? what about the lawlessness thriving within most major American big cities including racial unrest, or the work of napolitano releasing illegal’s or california releasing prisoners because of purported overcrowding? or the politically maintained open southern border with Mexico that’s a living political lie adversely affecting every American citizen? with so many politically mismanaged issues in America we could care less what happens in Libya.

It seems the Anti-US trolls are out in force, and those types always seem to think a Government run by anyone else is preferable to one friendly to the US. Now, an Al-Quaeda backed one seems fine with them, just like in the old days ones that were run from behind the Iron Curtain were, especially if they kill locals left and right as part of the bargain. Some things never change. After Benghazi it would seem the US has a lot invested in helping Libya make it. If the US walks out and lets our friends be whacked by Al Quaeda types after that it’s not good and it won’t stop in Libya either. A lot of destabilized nations in that part of the world these days. Egypt for one.

This is the kind of crap that happens when the US decides to remove a well liked head of state. Unfortunately, we have just made more enemies of people who were once our friends. :(

Looks like we’re going to do the same thing in Syria. This will all come back to us one day.
