Refresher on USA role in Libya

Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi’s four decade rule over Libya was crumbling at breakneck speed on Sunday as rebel leaders claimed Gaddafi’s compound was surrounded, that his son Saif al-Islam had been captured and his presidential guard had surrendered.

Late Sunday, opposition fighters were battling loyalist fighters for control of the symbolically significant Green Square in the heart of the city, previously the scene of near-daily pro-Gaddafi rallies, according to one Tripoli based rebel, as the sound of explosions, gunfire and cries of “God is great” echoed down the telephone line.

Another activist said rebels had secured the seaport, where several hundred rebel reinforcements had arrived by boat, and were also in the process of evicting Gaddafi loyalists from the Mitiga airbase on the eastern edge of the city. Source

    Libya Gains Its Freedom And The Arab Spring Enters
    2.022Aug11

    The Arab Spring has had it’s ups and downs. What began with a man lighting a single match in Tunisia, has spread throughout the region like a wildfire, leaving no land unscathed in its own way. In January and February we saw two tyrannical governments topple like a deck of cards as the people of Tunisia and Egypt took back their countries by taking to the streets. The joy was overwhelming, and so was the momentum. No sooner had Mubarak left, when all eyes shifted to Libya and the start of the February 17 movement. But then things took a more disheartening route as countries like Libya, Bahrain and Syria met their opposition with brutal force. We began to see the downside of revolutions. We began to see the risk factor. The disincentive. The consequence of what happens when people without guns stand up to people with guns. The momentum of the Arab Spring began to crumble and what the region discovered was that some governments would be harder to topple than others.

    Enter persistance. Enter Libya. Enter the Arab Spring 2.0 – a reaffirmation of hope and a reminder that freedom always comes at a cost. Libya’s achievement is exactly what was needed to remind people of what can be achieved if fought for valiantly. It is also a reminder to other Arab regimes who were just beginning to regain some degree of comfort that uncertainty remains; that the fires of the Arab spring are still burning and that their streets are still highly flammable.

    Staying up last night to watch the events unfold on the streets of Tripoli, I cannot help but feel the sense of confidence that swept across the region last night; radiating from TV, computer and mobile screens. I could not help but hear the deafening silence of those who believed the Arab spring had already met its doom, and those who had abandoned their hope in the capabilities of average citizens. The silence of the same people who are content with the grandeurs of their status quo. The same people that have consistently demonstrated their inability to understand the value of freedom, and especially what it’s worth to people who don’t have it, and people who cannot afford it. It is thrilling to see their beliefs shaken to the core; to see them watch a people risk the certainty of the status quo for the uncertainty of something greater, and achieve it.

    President Barack Obama issued a strongly worded statement Sunday night, calling on Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to relinquish power.

    “Tonight, the momentum against the Gadhafi regime has reached a tipping point. Tripoli is slipping from the grasp of a tyrant,” he said.

    “The surest way for the bloodshed to end is simple: Moammar Gadhafi and his regime need to recognize that their rule has come to an end.”
