I've been following the debate over the war in Libya on the list, and
have some questions for those who generally put forward the
"anti-pro-Qadaffi" position, as I'll refer to it.
The Libyan opposition (the "rebels") are supported by NATO and the
western imperialist powers. If they represent a genuine force for
democracy and self-determination, why are the imperialists supporting
them militarily and politically?
Would a victory for the opposition on the basis of the NATO intervention
be a positive step for democracy, self-determination, and ultimately for
the development of socialism in Libya and in the broader Middle East in
How do you explain this?
