As Gaddafi's reprisals grow stronger, the US, UN, and NATO have decided to sit back and wait for massive slaughter, and the media is trying to excuse it all by calling the situation in Libya a "civil war", it is more and more imperative for the international community to back the targets of Gaddafi's assymetrical war on the Libyan people.
The Administrators of the blog Libya February 17 have called on North American based Libyans to rally today at noon in Washington DC in support of the Libyan National Transitional Council, and to sign an online statement of support.
Their post is copied below.
