NATO: The new Orgainians

The NATO chief was on TV again today explaining the NATO's sole role in Libya is the protection of civilians. The rapid advance of rebel forces in the wake of NATO's airborne attacks against tanks and hard points is merely coincidental. I couldn't help but notice the rebel army has convoys of truck-mounted rocket launchers (a la Katyusha), which is not exactly a precision weapon, particularly if used against an army in an urban setting.

It is interesting to speculate how NATO will react if rebel forces lay siege to Tripoli. Will NATO start bombing the rebels in this case? Or do they count as civilians?

NATO could become just like the Orgainians, only murderous.

"Captain Kirk, violence is painful to us. But unless you 
learn to peacefully resolve your differences with the 
Klingons, we will massacre you all."
