[ Who is this "we" ?

What the "rebels" are calling for is Gaddafi's head on a stick. So whom is
being spoken for, here?

I'm all for argued positions over geopolitical matters, but to pretend to be
the great "we" as a blogger is perhaps something of the hubris "we" need to
avoid --- especially when the link above leads to no reasoned argument
whatsoever. What "we" need is much more than this.
