Libyan authorities to dissolve 'unlawful' militias
France24 ^ | 23 September 2012

Posted on 09/22/2012 9:26:25 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

AFP - The Libyan authorities said late Saturday they had decided to dissolve all militias and armed groups that did not come under State authority.

The move, a day after Benghazi residents rebelled against the militias in violence that killed at least 11 people and wounded over 70, was announced by Mohammed al-Megaryef, head of the national assembly, in the eastern city.

Could be the Libyans are catching a clue that radical Islam is less fun than the rule of Col Kadaffy.

How do you dissolve something that is unlawful. By its very nature, unlawful is beyond government control ...

Remember that we are dealing with a third world nation where “unlawful” doesn't mean the same thing as it does in the first or second world.

In almost every third world nation anything that has access to arms is a government sponsored entity of some sort. The fact that these “militia” groups were so heavily armed indicates that they had significant government support/sponsorship. The nicest thing that i will say about these “militia” groups is they allow the existing governemnt system to run politically deniable operations with impunity. Something that has been going on in the Islamic world for 40 plus years,

What were our contractors doing there in the first place? Dissolving illegal militia weapons?

Your statements are quite reasonable, accept for Something that has been going on in the Islamic world for 40 plus years, ... may I humbly submit for the past 1500 centuries in essence. That being based on reading many works on Islam for the past going on thirty years or so, including of course some of the works by the renown Edward Sells.

"What were our contractors doing there in the first place? Dissolving illegal militia weapons?"
The answer is yes. With either hydrochloric, sulphuric, or nitric acid. All are known to possess the chemical properties of "dissolving" militia's metallic weapons.
Thanks for giving me a pass. Seriously. All your concerns are of equal and valid importance. In all sincerity.
I'm still wondering what the morons in the WH and DOS where thinking about to over throw the Libyan regime who where willing to stop their wmd programs and keep the totally royal asshole level Islamist of all stripes from getting out of hand in that country.
Of course that question is rhetorical in nature having shifted it pretty much out in my mind. And it don't look good for the goon that runs the executive branch as well as the goon in control of the DOS.

Like wise FRiend. I knew you would not be offended. After listening to some of the stuff Ambassador Crocker had to say in the CSPAN video. I'm still fuming over how our State Department conducts business. Of course I have to go back in time to at least the Second World War and the types that where already infiltrating that institution as well as other parts of the Federal gov. Enough. You get my drift.
For some reason. Unknown. I felt the need to get a bit loose. I should add. I'm not a bit troubled just by what we see in the past few years, but dating back a long long time.
No response needed. Where most likely on the same wave lengths. And at my end it is 1:12 EST east coast USA. I don't know how much longer I will stay on the boards. But do have a great upcoming day. But let me add.
I wonder to myself why I have not since 2004 at this site used the term FRiend more frequently to a large group of really fine people. I'll leave it rest with that one.

Have you read the bios of a good number of the newly elected leaders of Libya? Very Western.

Sunk. For whatever reason I have not thanked you for the many years of solid work you contribute to this site. So thanks. Maybe in my slowly old age recognition I'm noticing more those at this site for a long time have been solid contributors.
Quite a few to boot I might add.
Do have a great upcoming day. No response required. Where probably on very similar wave lengths as I quoted to a few others recently. Tis late at my end on the east coast of the USA. I probably will be signing off shortly.

LOL! I remember hearing that on the radio. Maybe it was Rush who played it. She’s pathetic. Sociopath of State, that’s true. :)

Thanks petitfour. I will follow through with that suggestion.
Do you have some profiles of the Libyan government officials now ascending power that you might think I should look into?
And that is not a catch twenty two question. My mind is open when I see a clear reason for it to remain open.

Sounds like a formula for a multi-sides civil war.

Did you read some of the comments under that video? This one was particularly funny:

"I’m wondering if Mrs. Clinton visits an Indian reservation she might cozy up to them saying,

"How! Me not tired. Me come heap long way. Road mighty rough. Sky Spirit no bring me this far..."

No possible offense taken here. I was the first one to make a joke about it. Since 9-11-01 I lost all restraint and all care about what anyone thinks about what I think about Muslims. I will probably live my life out without softening my opinion on that and see no change at all in them to even give me a reason to try to.

A culture that celebrates raging murderous psychosis is deserving of no respect other than the respect of taking them as a serious threat.

Here's a great little video clip I saw linked in another thread that captures my feelings for raging Muslims. Light 'em up!

I stand at attention and pay a smart salute to each of them. From those that spent many tours in Iraq and Afghanistan in sand holes, some at basis where they could actually lay their heads upon a pillow or at least a barren cot in some dirty stinky building along side say a filthy canal full of loads, and other filth, etc..
They serve with honor, and often much duress. So many American seem to not have a sense of what so many of them had to go through.

I can say the same SunkenCiv.. We have a large group of really fine people. From all walks of life. And the complement really was long over due for you. And I could add for so many others that have been positive contributors to this site.

FR could, however, really use an “ignore” function, like those found on some other sites.
