This letter is in response to the articles covering the civil unrest
occurring in Libya.
As a citizen of and believer in democracy, I applaud the efforts of the
Libyan people. Their efforts are similar to what is happening in Yemen,
Algeria and Bahrain as well as the most recent revolutions in Egypt and
Believe it or not, one thing that trumps capitalism and political
correctness in the United States is the right to have one’s voice heard.
This is the foundation of which our democracy is built on. The Libyan
people should continue to defy Moammar Gadhafi’s powerful
security forces so that Libyan democracy can begin to thrive. It is
unfortunate that the United States compromised on one of its most
fundamental values in order to protect its economic interests in the
Middle East; something that happens all too often domestically as well.
It is not the Libyan people that are attempting to seize power but rather
it is those currently in power who have engaged in intimidation to prevent
the will of the people from being heard. Why else would they stoop to such
underhanded tactics to block various means of communication among the
citizens of Libya? Why is the government in power utilizing such
political strong-arm tactics as the use of violence?
Moammar Gadhafi, you have had forty-two years to lead Libya and have
failed them by your own choosing. The days of the despotic regime are
finally coming to an end as it appears the desire for freedom will continue
to sweep among the Arab nations. Accordingly, let the call go forth among
all citizens of Libya that your brothers and sisters of democracy from all
over the world are with you during every trial and tribulation you may
encounter during this crisis. To the people of Libya, the trumpet of
freedom beckons you to rise in protest and ensure your voice to preserve
your sacred heritage, promote your children’s future and obtain the
blessings of liberty we all cherish.
Libya, the hour of your redemption is at hand. As you the rightful citizens
move forward to reclaim your own country, rise and strike! In the name of
those who were murdered fighting for everyone’s rights, rise and strike!
To end the rule of this evil regime, rise and strike! Let no one continue
to fear this man. Let every Libyan be strong and fight on for their
freedom. Hang in there; help is finally on the way.
Moammar Gadhafi, let the people go!

Congratulations Libyan Freedom Fighters…now get that United States flag up
and make it snappy…we haven’t worked this hard for nothing…
As for you Muammar a picture says a thousand words…
I am a student from cologne, Germany, and I wish to apologize for my gouvernments shameful abstention. May your efforts to get rid of your brutal dictator be successful and as many lives as possible (on both sides) saved!
In failing to give active support to the UN in regard to the problem of Gaddafi and his murderous regime, the Russians (and others) are condemning Misurata to a painful and lingering death. Perhaps Russia would do well to remember how, during World War II, the Red Army was able, heroically, to resist a similar onslaught at Stalingrad (now Volgograd), by forces bent on the annihilation of its people, but only by virtue of the fact that it was re-supplied from across the Volga river. Does Russia deny the fact that Libyans are entitled to have a similar lifeline, together with the means to defend themselves?
Meanwhile, increasingly deluded British Foreign Secretary William Hague tells us that thanks to NATO, Misurata is ‘saved’. He clearly has not been listening to the BBC World Service, or to Al Jazeera. If Misurata was London, and tanks were in the centre of the city bombarding the Houses of Parliament and cluster-bombing Trafalgar Square, would he hold the same opinion?

As NATO has singularly failed to protect the citizens of Misrata, surely the VERY LEAST that organization can do, is use its warships, which are lying off the coast, to evacuate the citizens of that city to a place of safety, before they are exterminated by Gaddafi’s forces.

During World War II, the Soviets overran Eastern Europe and held their peoples in subjection for almost half a century. Meanwhile, the West has, for several decades, armed and supported despotic regimes in the middle East and Africa.
However, the more enlightened Western Governments, and others throughout the world, are beginning to realise that the so-called ‘Arab Awakening’, whereby peoples of the Arab world see, for the first time, a hope of kicking out the tyrants that have governed them so cruelly, is a phenomenon which is gathering momentum. Therefore, the argument that a country’s governing regime must be respected at all times and at all costs, no matter how despicable it may be, is simply inappropriate for the 21st century. And unless Russia (and China, India, and Brazil) changes her obstructive attitude to these fledgling freedom fighters, she will find herself once again, on the wrong side of history.

Like millions of other ordinary people throughout the world, I follow the news bulletins anxiously, hoping desperately to see the swift end of Gadaffi’s gun-toting, gangster led regime. And on these news bulletins, I see journalists, learned professors, politicians, and others all giving their opinions, but what I rarely see is anyone from NATO.
Surely, given the fact that the UN has charged that organization with protecting the citizens of Libya, its President Ban Ki-moon should be insisting that NATO gives a daily account of its action, and subjects itself to a question and answer session, in which, for example, it is asked to explain why, after a 40-day siege, it has failed, and continues to fail abjectly, to protect the citizens of Misurata?
Would you be kind to put a note in arabic in your newspaper to announce the declaration and birth of our FREEDOM AND JUSTIC PARTY.
