It looks like the “protesters” are getting the upper hand in Libya, as I write this. I’m not sure when a “protester” becomes a “revolutionary” but they seem to have passed that line, wherever it is. Knowing nothing about Libyan politics, I looked up the primary opposition organisation on Wikipedia, The National Front for the Salvation of Libya. They appear to have been around for a while, and probably have CIA backing, which may or may not be a good thing. But I was interested to read that they want
Democratic government with constitutional guarantees, free elections, a free press, and separation of powers among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches.
I hope they can get all of those things. I hope also that one day so will we.
