OK it's apparent now what happened with the SAS men - it was what it seemed it was - they were on a PSD mission, escorting a member of the Foreign Office attempting to reach out to the rebel presence in Benghazi. Their arrival by helicopter spooked the rebels and the rest is history. As of time of writing this, I haven't heard of their fate, although The Telegraph seems to indicate they've been released.
As the Libyan situation continues to careen out of control, the big question is what we are we actually seeing take place in these popular uprisings throughout the Arab world?
Will what's taking place lead to Democracy breaking out all over the region?
My take on it is that this is a genuine people's uprising, but that one of two outcomes will take place; A) Depending on which country we're talking about, the government forced out of power will be replaced by a new military junta or dictator (as in Egypt), or B) the people's movement will be co-opted by Islamist forces such as the Muslim Brotherhood or al Qaeda, or C) a combination of both A) and B) where the struggle continues against the successor government - which may or may not be making legitimate attempts toward Democratic reform - but the Islamist forces successfully coerce the mob to continue the revolution against the status quo, resulting in the establishment of an Islamic theocracy a la Iran.
No worries, America; according to OUR regime's National Intelligence Director James Clapper, the Muslim Brotherhood is a “secular” organization . . . a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam.”
The CIA’s own website lists the Brotherhood as a “religious-based” party.
