The rebels are an inchoate and NATO-driven force. Who do you suggest is
the target of the protest? We've had good protests in SA already against
the US on Libya.

Lots of problems I haven't written about, to be sure.

No, I don't think they read our ezines, do they? If they shoot Africans
based on skin colour, I don't think even Amnesty Intl's appeals will
sway them, do you?
Can you specify which 'leftists' support the rebels, in which case
naming-and-shaming specific people who fall into the caricature you
paint might be useful, simply for clarification purposes.
But as far as I can tell, the indy left has adopted a 'pox on both your
houses' perspective on Libya, not so?
