Who is responsible for the mayhem in Libya and why is there little or no attention paid to the plight of the Libyan people in the media? The country no longer exists as a unitary state; there are fiefdoms created by warlords who are rampaging through parts of the country. Is this what the West mean by “liberating” a country and the even more ludicrous assertion of “right to protect”? Why have the Libyan people been left at the non-existent mercies of the terrorists and why aren’t Western rulers held accountable for destroying a country?
