American Support in Libya
Libyans Supporting US and NATO Military action in Libya, march in a Rebel held city in celebration, after near defeat by Qaddafi's forces. I found this picture especially interesting because for most of my life, the media has always broadcasted images of Arabs defaming the American flag, burning it, or jumping on it in a sign of disrespect. Now for the first time, I see Arabs supporting the US and waving its flag in the air. Although the U.S. and it's track record in history has been far from perfect, America has always been a work in progress. It has shifted back in forth between the bully of the world, and the preserver of human rights. Although the intervention will likely prolong this conflict, it's good to see images showing other parts of the world who respect, and look up to the United States. The U.S. has responsibility to lead in a morale way.
