This article is too simplistic to suit me. However, I agree with the following:
The progressives and liberals who earlier rushed to cheer for the so-called "Libyan revolution" are now left to make excuses for a group of NATO-installed criminals whose short record includes racist lynchings, mass executions and the handing over of Libya's resources to their imperialist masters.
U.S. imperialism is driven by the expand-or-die logic of capitalism to dominate the world politically, economically and militarily. Backed by mainstream media lies and despite its fake rhetoric of "freedom, democracy and human rights," its interventions are intended to increase profit for its capitalist class and secure its global domination.

I did not want Qaddaffi to remain dictator or to conduct his threatened bloodbath while I was also not supportive of the violent revolution. Ultimately though, it was Qaddaffi's failure to reform in a proper and timely manner that led to his ouster, short of the "West" pulling another Operation Ajax regardless of any then Qaddaffi popularity for just cause.
