Good thing we went into that country and freed them. Are we now going to chose a side between these 2 rebel groups?
Democracy seems to be flourishing in Libya.

Libyan bandits vs. North Korea. Does it get any better than that? China will finally get to enjoy a taste of…. “Why is the Muslim world so crazy…. we paid them for the stupid oil.”

Good times. Welcome to global-economy-adulthood, China. You are in for a treat.

Obama, Clinton, and Rice gave Libya more than one type of democracy in which ballots AND bullets prevail. Every voter has at least one assault rifle; machine guns count for more than one AR; RPGs give more votes than MGs; and so on to artillery, AFVs, and tanks. Superior democracy through superior firepower is the American Way!

After the “special force” sent by “Libya’s parliament” captures “all rebel-held ports,” who is going to capture them from the “special force?” Fortunately for the US and NATO, their exceeding of the UN mandate to become the Libyan Rebel Air Force instead of setting up a No Fly Zone in 2011 has caused Libyan oil exports, most which went to the US and NATO to drop to 10% of normal, helping to keep oil prices above $100 per barrel. This causes the US and NATO to spend more to run their mechanized economies and mechanized militaries. In one glorious campaign, the West managed to damage their economies, damage the militaries that are paid for by their economies, sent more money to Arab oil countries, increased donations for al Qaeda and the Taliban from Arab oil countries, and forced the US and NATO to pay for both sides in their current wars. According to the US Marines, “Payback is a female canine!”
