Shades of Yugoslavia (and elsewhere)

The latest news from Libya:
"A separate airstrike elsewhere in Tripoli targeted Libyan TV and temporarily knocked it off the air."
Will we hear a single American newsperson condemning this attack on the press? As in Yugoslavia, and as in U.S. attacks against Al Jazeera in Afghanistan and Iraq, I very much doubt it.

And as far as bombing a library and reception hall in Tripoli to "protect civilians," will we hear a peep from the U.N. about the outrageous violation of their sacred resolution? Will we hear a single U.S. politician outside of perhaps Ron or Rand Paul and Dennis Kucinich condemning the attack? I very much doubt it.
