Collateral damage(of Imperial intervention)comes to US embassy in Benghazi
The killing of US ambassador in Libya and 3 other State Dept. staff is a direct consequence of US and NATO's Imperial regime change policy. Last year, after NATO forces dropped thousands of bombs and shipped in tons of lethal weapons to aid the rebels, the Gaddafi regime was violently overthrown by a loose coalition of tribal militias, gangs of armed thugs, and openly-admitted al Qaeda elements. Untold thousands of Libyans were killed, and the already tribally-divided society quickly dissolved into destabilized enclaves, many of whom remain lawless armed camps with their own respective militants and still do not answer to the Western-installed central government. This is the hornet's nest that was predictably unleashed by the violent regime change policy of the US-led mad C.O.W.s(Coalition of Oilers & Warmongers).
Because the current Libyan governing council is fundamentally the product of outside foreign interests, not the outcome of a genuine citizens' alliance of democratic forces, the resultant chaos and bitter score-settling by various tribal groups is now the primary legacy of Western Imperialist intervention. This is the basic background of current instability in the aftermath of Gaddafi's demise. Thus, it is crystal clear that whichever Western "superpower" that instigated the violence against Tripoli last year is the primary culprit in today's Lawlessness. Hence, the latest killing of American representatives constitutes the unpredictable but inevitable "blowback" of Washington's aggressive and militant foreign policy objectives. However the White House chooses to blame the killings on "extreme elements," keen observers ocnclude that more violence and instability will continue to reign in this part of oil-rich North Africa.
