Thumbs up to Libya

This is what freedom looks like.  It has to be taken and it has to be earned – not given.

Can it be helped along?  Certainly.  The French can fight with the American rebels, but not for them.  America can send some jets and missiles to assist, but should not lead the way.  Others can fight with the rebellion…but they cannot fight for the rebellion.  See Iraq as an example of the failure of trying to give freedom to a group who doesn’t want to take it.

And while it’s early to declare a rebel victory in Libya, it appears they are well on their way and I say GOOD WORK to those who are fighting.

Report:

Euphoric Libyan rebels raced into the capital Tripoli on Sunday and moved close to center with little resistance as Moammar Gadhafi’s defenses collapsed and his regime appeared to be crumbling fast.

Associated Press reporters with the rebels said they moved easily from the western outskirts into the regime stronghold in a dramatic turning of the tides in the 6-month-old Libyan civil war. A rebel leader said the unit in charge of protecting Gadhafi and Tripoli had surrendered and joined the revolt, allowing the opposition force to move in freely.

Earlier in the day, the rebels overran a major military base defending the capital, carted away truckloads of weapons and raced to Tripoli with virtually no resistance.

Wouldn’t be too much of a shame if that Lockerbie bomber bastard didn’t make it through the rebellion, either.
