» The big debate now is whether and who among the Invade Libya Alliance will give weapons to to the Libyan rebels. Some say they already have...
United States, Britain and France send hundreds of “defence advisors” to train and support rebels

The United States, Britain and France have sent several hundred “defence advisors” to train and support the anti-Gadhafi forces in oil-rich Eastern Libya where “rebels armed groups” have apparently taken over

According to an exclusive report confirmed by a Libyan diplomat in the region “the three Western states have landed their “special forces troops in Cyrinacia and are now setting up their bases and training centres” to reinforce the rebel forces who are resisting pro-Qaddafi forces... [Reuters sourced from, More]
So the issue must be whether to do it publicly. Brega, an oil center, has been retaken by al Gadaffi's army and Misrata is still under siege.

More from Foreign Policy Magazine:
Pro-Qaddafi forces have reportedly captured the refinery town of Ras Lanuf. The rebels' westward advance, aided by international airstrikes and a mandated no-fly zone, appears to have stalled since Qaddafi's forces counterattacked on Tuesday. However, by advancing westward, pro-Qaddafi forces are exposing themselves to western airstrikes, and indeed warplanes and explosions were reported near Ras Lanuf on Wednesday. The government forces are also now reportedly deploying anti-personnel mines.

Meeting in London, British Foreign Secretary William Hague and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, did not rule out the possibility of arming the rebels. "UN [Security Council Resolution] 1973 allows all necessary measures to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas, and our view is this would not necessarily rule out the provision of assistance to those protecting civilians in certain circumstances," Hague said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov disputed that interpretation of the resolution.

Members of of NATO, the Arab League, and the African Union met in London to discuss the ongoing events in Libya. The participants agreed to set up a contact group to coordinate political efforts that will hold its first meeting in Qatar. [Source, Foreign Policy Magazine]

» About the Libyan Rebels... We need to get something straight here folks... They ARE NOT revolutionaries... The people of Libya may be hoping for a revolution, but that's NOT what's on the agenda.

A CIA Commander For Libyan Rebels. McClatchy has more: Libyan rebel leader spent much of past 20 years in suburban Virginia (Vienna... Where all the CIA expats live)

Meanwhile, "...fears about the rebels surfaced publicly on Capitol Hill on Tuesday when the military commander of NATO, Adm. James G. Stavridis, told a Senate hearing that there were “flickers” in intelligence reports about the presence of Qaeda and Hezbollah members among the anti-Qaddafi forces." (Source, NY Times)

Even though those 'Flickers' 'reported' to the Senate have been long-reported by the European press:
Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links

According to an article in the Telegraph one commander of rebel groups in Libya has links to Al Qaeda and fought against the coalition in Iraq. If these people see any foreign troops on the ground they will be the first to shoot them if Gadaffi forces miss. But then we can be assured these rebels will be sure to recognize their responsibility to protect innocent civilians. (Source, Telegraph UK)
Add that together with the just reported longstanding CIA connection to the commander of the Libyan rebel forces and you have the CIA STILL consorting with Osama bin-Laden's friends.

For that matter so was Raymond Davis, the drone targeting Xe/CIA operator in Pakistan recently ransomed from that country for a double murder of alleged muggers whom the Pakistani press claimed had a flock of al Qaeda affiliated phone numbers on his cellie.
(Source, International Herald-Tribune).

I'll repeat that in short form... The US State Department and Pentagon are consorting with al Qaeda to further their own interests militarily and diplomatically in the region. Our elected representatives MUST know as well. It's all in the major daily newspapers.

The question must be asked... "Are their interests and the average American citizen's the same?"

If so, why whine about a 'pesky' few thousand people killed in 'terrorist attacks' when we HIRE and WORK WITH the 'terrorists' so our consumer lifestyles can continue with oil flowing freely 'from Libya to China to the soles of the jogging shoes we wear'?

Aren't a few thousand dead American civilians and larger numbers of soldiers killed in our ongoing un-declared wars worth it?

If not... If you don't agree with that murderous hypocrisy... What ARE you going to do about it?

» Congresss is back and we'll see what they break as the Democrats fold, allowing another $20 billion dollars in spending cutsd to get yet another continuing 2011 budget resolution passed. But there are contentious issues still attached to the bill such as the funding of NPR (Don't panic... The feds only fund about 2% of NPR's budget), winter heating fuel subsidies for people who live in the North East U.S., and Planned Parenthood. There are nine days left until the US government financially shuts down and it's unlikely the Senate will pass it as it's currently written.

Jimmy Carter is on an unofficial mission to Cuba for a meeting with Raul Castro. He's there attempting to obtain the release of Alan Gross, a USAID contractor, recently convicted and sentenced to 15 years in prison, for bringing computer and telecom gear into the country illegally. More at the LA Times.

» Jerry Brown has balanced the California budget but whether the Republicans, with whom he cut off talks, will allow it's passage remains to be seen. Governor Brown said the Republicans "...were unwilling to support his plan unless he yielded to "an ever-changing list of collateral demands.".

This is Razer Raygun saying 'Happy Motoring America...' Enjoy it while you can.
(...and try not to let your government kill too many 'dusky natives' in the process OK?)
