Regarding the Nov. 10 editorial, “New era for Libya“: Western “help” is an affliction. Colonialism fed on internecine battles of the Indian subcontinent. I suspect the same was true in other colonies of the past. Libya can make no virtuous progress under the stigma of the NATO bombing campaign (to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi). All people of this tortured land should come together under the aegis of countries like India and Brazil. Libya will suffer the fate of Greece if it descends into the morass of permitting European interference.
