On Saturday afternoon, braving the bitter cold and intermittent snow, hundreds of Chicagoans gathered to express their solidarity with the Libyan people.
The unifying voice of all protests has been the one calling for reforms, freedom, democracy and more dignifying life. I share their hope.
Crowds of unarmed protesters have been shot at with live ammunition. But dead protesters in our forcibly-imposed democracy is just so not according to the media's storyline.
I suggest that the UN Security Council invite Egypt to intervene, if Libyans approve. A small part of Egypt's army would dwarf Gaddafi's forces.
Despite Gaddafi's reputation as delusional, he still controls his own propaganda machine and media. An assassin's bullet could find its mark, things could disintegrate from within, but the Gaddafi clan is far from done.
As Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's brutal crackdown continues, the European Union must act swiftly to translate its statements into action, say three leading human rights and humanitarian organisations.
The biggest question is not whether Gaddafi will be ousted, but how many of his fellow Libyans he is willing to bring down with him.
Mr. President. Everyone knows you can speak about what's happening in Libya. You're an eloquent guy with a broad vocabulary. Are the words 'despicable,' 'monstrous,' and 'loathsome' outside your Harvard-trained vocabulary?
Stephanie Bernstein, a rabbi in Bethesda, Maryland, has been one of the most outspoken victims of the Lockerbie bombing. Her husband Michael was among the 259 killed.
The "an enemy of my enemy is my friend" approach risks too much in the long run for the people of Libya until the long-term intents and identities of those involved can be made clear.
Visiting Muammar Gaddafi's Libya was always like dropping into "Abdul in Wonderland." My first visit to Gaddafi was in October 1986, just a few months after US warplanes had bombed Tripoli.

Missing the only United Nations Security Council meeting on the Middle East revolution was not Susan Rice's first absence from high profile UN business.
In their quest to shrink government down to nothing, conservatives have found their new welfare queen in the form of public labor unions.
It was inevitable that the venerable London School of Economics would be rechristened the "Libyan School of Economics" the instant it embraced the financial largesse of the Gadhafi family.
There needs to be a concerted, untiring struggle for change to see an actual revolution. The Egyptian military will use the protester fatigue in its favor and the Bahrain royalty will employ the sectarian divide to cement its rule.
