    Behave and get out of the way of the revolution Dr Jibril. This is not a blue collar renaissance movement. The majority in Libya are Muslims.

    Don’t like it. GO.

    I like to think that the team running this site are now very busy maybe setting up a political party, or taking part in the day-to-day administration of their city or whatever, which means they have less time available.

    Sakyabuni? I’m pretty sure they’re much more disciplined than our Congress in US. The Tea Partiers would have the country sink like a stone then jump in in 2016 with a ‘save’ toward normalcy using all the good ideas they passed up while O’bama %%- was president. I’m satisfied the NTC is WAY more focused on a positive future and they’ve had SO many losses to achieve this victory. Am glad we could ‘get away with’ joining NATO in helping…never mind that 100% of the Senate on March 1st, 2011 voted to do just what we did: Help enforce a No-Fly Zone and protect lives. I’m late catching up with the news however. Perhaps just as well as I was chewing my nails as things were there for awhile. Best to you and all here. Bye for now. J.
