    Libyans protest against militias accused of organizing attack on US consulate

    Thousands of Libyans marched through Benghazi on Friday to demand the dismantlement of the hundreds of armed militias that have ruled the country’s streets since a revolution ended the 42-year rule of Moammar Gaddafi.By early Saturday, the protesters had overrun at least four militia bases, forcing fighters to flee with their guns. Those bases included the headquarters of the Islamist militia Ansar al-Sharia, blamed by some for last week’s attack on the U.S. Consulate.The Sept. 11 attack, which left the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans dead, has prompted anger and soul-searching among many of Benghazi’s residents, who believe that religious extremists operating in an atmosphere of weak central governance were behind the assault.

    The thought is appreciated but to little to late.
    Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me
