Abstractly counterposing "Libyan working class control of the war and society" to the intervention as it's taking place now is only a couple of rungs short of saying "socialism is the answer".

In the absence of any identifiable independent working-class element within the Libyan rebellion, what concrete grip does your perspective have against the position Trotsky articulates in the article (don't put a minus just because the bourgeoisie puts a cross, no trust/confidence but no direct, active opposition either) and that we have advocated over Libya?

If you know of an independent working-class force within Libya capable of enacting your perspective I will be only too delighted to change my position.
