“Please don’t intervene”

The GuardianMuhammad min Libya writes today for the Comment is Free section, saying that Libya is united in popular revolution.

“We welcome a no-fly zone, but the blood of Libya’s dead will be wasted if the west curses our uprising with failed intervention”

The Guardian

He writes that despite all the violence and bloodshed, Libyans have high hopes. Gaddafi and Saif’s threats, he says, backfired as everyone across Libya went out to assert national unity. All Libyans feel it is only a matter of time before Gaddafi regime is gone.

“This happy ending, however, is marred by a fear shared by all Libyans; that of a possible western military intervention to end the crisis,” he says.

“So as the calls for foreign intervention grow, I’d like to send a message to western leaders: Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy. This is a priceless opportunity that has fallen into your laps, it’s a chance for you to improve your image in the eyes of Arabs and Muslims. Don’t mess it up. All your previous programmes to bring the east and the west closer have failed, and some of them have made things even worse. Don’t start something you cannot finish, don’t turn a people’s pure revolution into some curse that will befall everyone.”

    Do the revolutionists have a navy?

    OK but if Gaddafi unleashes deadly weapons on newly liberated town’s civilians; should the outside world simply watch it on TV.
    How long will you depend on goodwill of your patriotic pilots defecting to Malta or deliberately missing targets, what if Gaddafi has mercenary fighter pilots?
    Your struggle has been inspiring, but just don’t shut yourself off from the world’s view, like it happened in earlier. We are not all that different, we are all Human.

    I think military intervention is really dangerous. Gaddafi is probably counting on the Americans to intervene and may try to provoque them to use ground troups in order to win part of the population back (most Libyans are against American ground troups). How he will do that i dont know, attacking refugees? using human shields in air attacks? We shouldnt underestimate him because he says rediculous things, he was able to play out tribal differences for so many years.

    Could someone please forward this to EVERY head-of-state in the Western world? Let the brave young (and old!) people of Libya win their freedom on their own terms..Gadaffi will fall and the people will have their justice..

    If the freedom fighters can get the oil flowing again, they could use that money to buy the supplies they need. It seems they have plenty of soldiers, but arms and ammo might be a problem.

    When people use machine guns, they tend to spray them all over, wasting bullets and sometimes not even hitting their targets at all. A study was done and it was found that firing single shots was way more deadly, it forced the shooter to actually aim and so the kill ratios were way higher.

    In any case, good luck to the freedom fighters
