Skip to comments.African migrants and black Libyans put in danger by 'mercenary' propaganda

The rotting bodies of 30 men, almost all black and many handcuffed, slaughtered as they lay on stretchers and even in an ambulance in central Tripoli, are an ominous foretaste of what might be Libya's future.
The incoming regime makes pious statements about taking no revenge on pro-Gaddafi forces, but this stops short of protecting those who can be labelled mercenaries. Any Libyan with a black skin accused of fighting for the old regime may have a poor chance of survival.
The atmosphere in the Libyan capital is frighteningly uncertain a week after the sudden collapse of Gaddafi's forces. Nobody knows who is in charge. Some dozen members of the Transitional National Council based in Benghazi gave a late-night press conference at the Radisson Blu Hotel to announce they were taking over, but appeared strained and nervous after landing by plane on a makeshift airstrip in the mountains.

While the article is interesting and probably accurate, I wonder if this is one of the Marxist Cockburn boys including Alexander, etc?
Ho hum, this is just the normal progression of most revolutions.
As I recall after the French revolution the real “Reign of terror” began, anyone with a grudge could (and DID!) denounce their neighbor, banker, land-lord, or anyone else they wanted to be rid of.
To be accused was very likely a death sentence.
From the article this is actually fairly mild injustice by comparison to many revolutions.
Of course the victims probably don’t see it that way.
Gadaffi’s forces did not collapse.
Gadaffi’s forces, posing no threat whatsoever to civilians in Tripoli, had their purely defensive positions bombed by NATO in direct violation of the UN mandate that authorized only missions that protected civilians.
Rather a lot of war crimes should be prosecuted among NATO personnel.
There are other reports of several hundred people apparently shot before the rebels came in and then the building burned over them. Also concerns that 50,000 political prisoners in Tripoli are so far unaccounted for.
Hey Zero, “You break it, you buy it”. Remember?
They all immigrate to the US as refugees and are put on welfare for the rest of their lives like all the Somali refugees.
The politicians don't care that you have to pay for this and live next door to these primitives who generally hate you.

Congrats LSd you seen well on your well to true elitism.
Reflect a bit, consider, and reverse. r.
You have a problem with gritty reality???
History repeats, nothing new here.
Actually surprising it has not been worse, but the reports are not all up to date and it is still fairly early in the outcome.
The U.S. revolution was (mostly) the great exception, at least on the American side.
Well, this is definately Obama’s Iran; just as Carter helped in overthrowing the Shah, Obama has overthrown one of few non-radical Muslim African dictators. The similarities are incredibly striking, no?
Obama needs to go to Libya right now and stop this. Is he done being Grand Pooba of the weather yet?
