Libya: Imperialists salivate at the spoils of war
The tremendous revolutionary uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, represent the clearest indication, along with the great recession in the world economy, that we have entered a turning point in world history. The power of the working masses to take matters into their own hands and overthrow the most brutal regimes has been dramatically shown. How things will develop from here remains to be seen, but the example of Libya shows that important and difficult questions are being posed for the future of the movement and the region as a whole.
