I do not consider myself an unfeeling person....
Since the beginning of the “uprising” and NATO bombardment in Libya, opinion in “progressive” circles has been of two schools. . .
After spending ten years and goodness-knows-how-many millions of dollars, the omniscient US “intelligence” forces claim to have succeeded in tracking down and killing a six-foot-four-inch bearded Arab who moved around with an oxygen tank. What a triumph. Next we will be told that 9/11 was a victory because seven “terrorists” died.
Revolutionaries have never succeeded by “winning over” the masses through word or deed, but by taking advantage of, and in some cases precipitating, a division among the rulers such that the course they advocated came to be seen as the only realistic one.
