No idea. I don't know any Libyans or Indians working in Libya [same reason I did not comment much on the Japanese earthquake because my acquaintance there went AWOL ] But off topic: I'm not certain exactly who the Americans are supporting. The problem with having a two faced foreign policy [the obvious and the covert] is that it is hard to tell the difference between "news" and news. I'm suspicious about the acknowledged head of the Libyan revolutionaries - Jibril - because he is the polar opposite of the invisible head of the Libyan council [the one with the price on his head - Jaleel] both ideologically and also in terms of Libyan representation; the one seems an American puppet the other more representative of the group and region. So, let us wait and see. I did pop into the Libya Air war thread and express my concerns Back to the Freedom Flotilla 2. I'm keeping my ear to the ground on this one. You may have noted the eerie media silence on all the demonstrations going on in Palestine since the Medan Tahrir sit down in Egypt. Or the simulataneous media silence on the response of the PA and Israel towards these nonviolent demonstrators [think "disproportionate"] The reason why I highlight the Palestinian cause(s) is because there is a tendency of the media to forget they exist. How many times in the last few months while reading about all the demonstrations in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, etc did you read about the daily demonstrations in Palestine? Or about the pro-Mubarak demonstration by the PA? Or about the disproportionate crackdown on demonstrators by the IDF? Don't you think that with all the media attention on the ME, at least one mainstream news channel might have noticed what is happening there? And associated it with what is happening elsewhere? The other countries are after all fighting just one leader, but Palestinians are resisting against 60 plus years of active oppression, much much worse than what is happening in Egypt or Tunisia. And has the US media as yet discovered this Freedom boat to Gaza which has been one year in the organising and making?
