"The Arab speaking have no heroes, who ever helped them will be their victim."



President Obama was quoted as contemplating that the protest attack was not spontaneous - it was planned and carried out by professionals.

But Mr. President, Sarkozy of France and NATO Allies knew very well more than any one else that the protest under the guise of Arab Spring that toppled Quaddafi with the help of American/NATO superior air fire was well planned and not spontaneous and was carried out by professionals/being up graded from protesters, rebels, NTC and…..

From my third world background, I view these events in the Mid-east/North Africa as an intentional chaos especially when world leaders were forewarned about the consequences of the leadership changes they were hurrying to make in the region. The people who carried out this attack that claimed the lives of American Ambassador (who has been with them before, during and after the so called revolution) and three others were the same people who were able to topple Quaddafi under the umbrella/shield of US superior air hell fire bombs.

Thanks to your articles on which I was able to make the following comments on LIBYA.

Case of Libya.

If a veterinary Doctor finds only solution to a MAD DOG is put a bullet into its head, what will he do to a flock of infested wolverines. Gaddafi the MAD DOG may listen and comply but he is gone beyond and replaced by a flock WILD/VICIOUS wolverines difficult to tame and control.

Thank you Mr. Pipes.

Mr. Pipes, United Nation's resolution 1973 under NATO bombardment brought about the current situation in Libya. As in your last paragraph, you do not need to be nervous in wishing Libyans well as President Obama has made circumstances like this very clear to the whole world, "PEACE WILL NOT COME THROUGH STATEMENTS AND RESOLUTIONS AT THE UN." This is a statement expected to come from Mullah Umar & Co. but is more terror-fying when it came from the PREFECT of the SECURITY COUNCIL in the person of President Obama. The rebel/al-qa'ida/racist whom the West and America coin as revolutionist are fully aware of this and see NATO's intervention in toppling Gaddafi as the hand of God in aiding their cause, the Allahu Akbar they chanted whenever NATO bombards or make progress answers all questions. Dictator is now removed; they may end up in the hands of Jihadist/Islamist or in a democratic mess with former better and is a lost glory, the best Libyans could now do is to disprove President Obama that PEACE IS ASSURED THROUGH STATEMENT AND RESOLUTIONS AT THE UNITED NATION.

Thank you Mr. Pipes.

From Arab Revolt to Arab Spring there is nothing more than the story of tyranny and rebellion. The Arab speaking have no heroes, who ever helped them will be their victim. They have their agenda and the west have their own,

How could this be resolved? A perpetual bloodshed just as in Iraq, Libya and Egypt.

One is at loss why the west is complaining of the persecution of minorities while at the same time creating conditions exposing them to dangers - The condition of the minorities in Iraq, Egypt and Libya is now not the same as before the Arab Spring, and the same will happen in Syria.

Is there no other way to go about it?
