Re: National Transitional Council of Libya
Recent media has reported that the National Transitional Council of Libya are looking for the assets of Libya to be unfrozen to help repair Libya in the wake of ‘completely liberation’ from Gadaffi forces.

Offbeat Music Magazine: Collaborative Musical Riot →
Offbeat describes itself as a “collaborative musical riot”, and that’s exactly what it is. With a variety of contributers with an even wider music taste, Offbeat is new, but it spans continents, it’s purely online and it’s one of the best music magazines that I’ve come across on Tumblr. Highly recommended.
A quick note about Libya, the Rebels and Nato
We do not know the Libyan Rebels true political agenda other than to oust Gadaffi. And, until we do, I suggest we all stop praising them for their work. Remember the last time we gave arms to a group to fight another oppressive group? Remember when we armed the Taliban? Stop jumping on a fucking band wagon and open your eyes; this could be a repeat of history.I drew comparisons with the Taliban...

He asked ‘What is your affliction?’ They said ‘We have become like this through our fear of hell.’ He went on his way, and saw a number of people grouped disconsolately in various postures by the wayside.

A conversation between a journalist and Malcolm X
Journalist: Do you feel, however, that we’re making progress in this country?
Malcolm X: No, no. I will never say that progress is being made. If you stick a knife in my back 9 inches and pull it out 6 inches, that’s not progress. If you pull it all the way out, that’s not progress. Progress is healing the wound that the blow made. They won’t even admit that the knife is there!
