I, like 99% of my fellow Americans, am not up on my Libyan history. This excellent article by Justin Raimondo has helped me understand what is going on there much better. It is a must read.
Despite what many interventionists seem to think, all Muslims are not the same. Libya is a unique situation with a unique history. You can’t understand what is going on there without understanding this history. This is not simply dictator vs. Muslim Brotherhood backed rebels. The rebels are more secessionists than they are revolutionaries.
