- this was my first on the Arab Spring in Libya - 1/18/2011, when did the
Counterpunch crowd notice the changes? It looks like their first was

on March 7th That begins:

This tells me the counterpunch crowd wasn't aware and paid the revolution
or uprising no attention from the very beginning. Since they tail after
"their" bourgeoisie, they didn't even see Libya until after it came onto
NATO's radar. Which I think explains a lot.
