It is a different story this time. Libya is not Iraq. The U.S. and West are getting it right this time. The Obama administration is taking a different course towards the Arab World. We are learning from the lessons of the past. This military operation is necessary to limit Gaddafi’s military capabilities to slaughter his people. Gaddafi is deeply hated by his people, and the Arab masses who are wishing that the Libyan people will get their freedom after forty two years of Gaddafi’s erratic and disastrous rule over Libya.
America is on the right side of history responding to the popular sentiments of Arabs and their gasping for freedom after decades of authoritarian rule of despots who are corrupt and oppressive. America does not need to change the world, but rather listen to the people in these countries, support their hopes for democracy and their right to protest. Our so-called allies across the Arab world have proved to be big liabilities rather than assets; from Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain, and others, the people have spoken and made it clear what they want. They are not afraid anymore of old regimes that have been using fear and oppressive tactics against their people. Arabs are not buying anymore the conspiracy theories that have been promoting by the state media about imperialists, but rather seeing the enemy at home that has been oppressing them, stifling democracy and looting their wealth. It is a brave new world.
The military strikes on Gaddafi’s military are weakening him and might not take long.
