Robert Naiman, Truthout: “Michigan Rep. John Conyers has put forward an initiative that has a very strong claim to majority support. Conyers plans to introduce an amendment to the next government funding bill – the Continuing Resolution – that would prevent appropriated funds from being used to fund any type of ground troop presence on Libyan territory. Together with Representatives Honda, Stark, and Woolsey, Representative Conyers is circulating a letter to his colleagues in support of this amendment. This position has strong majority support from Americans. Seven out of ten Americans oppose the use of US ground troops in Libya, according to a CNN poll. A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that by a margin of 61-30, voters say regime change in Libya is not worth having American troops ‘fight and possibly die’ for”: here.

  1. The Egyptian Revolutionary Socialists have published a statement against Western intervention. They point to the hypocrisy of the West’s claims:

    “We did not hear the voice of the Security Council, the European Union, or the Americans, for decades while Gaddafi, and his like among the Arab regimes, suppressed their people.

    “They said nothing, so long as these regimes implemented the recommendations of the International Monetary Fund for the abolition of any social support for the poor, which was the only consolation for the Arab peoples.

    “For as long as companies kept open their doors to global capitalism they kept silent.

    “Intervention means the sacrifice of a few scapegoats, while working to contain the Arab revolutions… it is not to support democracy, but it is part of the counter-revolution.”
