The Libyan revolution needs our support

The situation in Libya is deteriorating. Gaddafi's forces are making gains and Libyans are being tortured and murdered on an appalling scale. There are dangers if western powers intervene. Gaddafi will be able to claim that this is old fashioned colonialism. But while the world dithers Libyans are dying.

There's no time to lose. We need a no fly zone and support for the revolutionaries as soon as possible. We should be supplying the revolution with arms and medical supplies. This is something we can do now. I've blogged in previous posts against western interference in Arab countries. It is the cause of much of the misery that exists is the Middle East, but now we need to intervene to save the revolution before a brutal dictator regains control.
