Planning for Mermaid Dawn - Mermaid is the Libyan nickname for Tripoli - began three months earlier when groups of young male volunteers left their homes in Tripoli [?] and travelled to Benghazi to learn the art of insurgent warfare from an [duh] international force of covert units composed of the
British SAS and MI6 agents and
troops from the French,
United Arab Emirates special forces.
As well as training the rebels, the British government also covertly supplied 1,000 sets of body armour, advanced telecommunications equipment and night vision goggles.
And the possibility still looms large of an ugly end-game in which [duh] factions of Nato's rebel allies begin to commit atrocities in retaliation for those committed by the [duh] retreating Gaddafi Army - something Britain and its allies would be [duh] powerless to halt.

The US-NATO War Against Libya and Its Implications for Africa and the World
Sunday, August 28, 2011http://panafricannews.blogspot.com/2011 ... d-its.html
The struggles of oppressed and working people in other parts of the world are also our struggle here in the United States. We are under attack here with the massive and concerted theft of our jobs, homes, pension funds, health care programs, schools and right to vote.
All we have to do is to simply open our eyes and look around us.
Look at the streets, the schools, the neighborhoods destroyed by the banks,
the police who patrol our neighborhoods targeting our youth for arrest, prosecution and imprisonment.
The unjust courts which send African American, Latino/a and working class youth to prison
while coddling the bankers and the transnational corporations and their agents in law-enforcement shielding them from prosecution for the enormous crimes against humanity that the commit on a daily basis.
