    “it’s way too early in Libya’s transition to be shouting about victories”

    “it’s way too early in Libya’s transition to be shouting about victories”

    David Dayen at Firedoglake, where the professional left is not sure Libya represents victory:

    Replacing a brutal government with a government that turns a blind eye to brutality doesn’t really count as a success, in my book….

    The point here is that it’s way too early in Libya’s transition to be shouting about victories.  Especially with the evidence that is coming out.

    That’s what the professional left is saying. but when push comes to shove, they’ll have Obama’s back, because they have nowhere else to go.

    Most of those butchered early on were blacks, murdered by Arabs because they were black, most of those now being murdered are of the same tribe as Gaddafi.

    Don’t worry, once the Left realizes that the genocidal murderers they’ve helped put in power in Libya are imposing Sharia Law, they’ll fall over each other apologizing for them.

    Doesn’t matter how it turns out. It’ll still be known as the Arab spring, and we’ll still be expected not to notice.

    They will continue to cite it as a blaring success until we get a Republican president, then suddenly they will ‘notice’ that it has devolved into Islamist theocracy and blame the Republican president.

    Replacing a dictator who was relatively easy to control by means of bribes and threats with a bunch of uncontrollable, probably insane, radical Islamists can hardly be called a victory!
