Images from Libya today speak more clearly about the folly of US interventionism, US “regime change” operations, US-led bombing campaigns to “promote democracy” than anything else.

Arguing passionately in favor of a US attack on Libya, over the objections of then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates, then-US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice said:

I swore to myself that if I ever faced such a crisis again, I would come down on the side of dramatic action, going down in flames if that was required.

Well she was partly right. Thanks to her successful demands for a US attack, it was Libya that went down in flames.

In October, 2011, the Washington Post, always friendly to the US regime, wrote this about the Libya attack:

[T]he coalition air campaign has emerged as a foreign policy success for the Obama administration and its most famous Cabinet member, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
