US condemns 'appalling' violence in LibyaSubmitted by YumYum on Tue, 02/22/2011 - 16:53
Actually, I think the powers in charge wanted Qadhafi to slaughter his people. It didn't go as they planned in Egypt, because Mubarak and his army had enough sense not to murder their people. But with Qadhafi refusing to step down, and killing innocents, this will cause a blow-up in the Middle East with Arabs and Muslims killing each other; just what the powers in charge wanted all along.
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration on Tuesday condemned "appalling" violence in Libya, where security forces are unleashing a bloody crackdown on protesters demanding the ouster of longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi.
"This violence is completely unacceptable," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said.
But as it sought to safely extricate U.S. diplomats and other Americans from the violence spreading around Libya, Washington stopped short of criticizing Gadhafi personally or demanding that he step down.
