Egypt and U.A.E. Said to Secretly Bomb Militias in Libya

    The other day, I nearly started a thread asking who was launching airstrikes in Libya.

    My guesses would have been, in no particular order, the US, France, and/or Britain.

    Turns out, it was Egypt and the U.A.E.:

    This is pretty startling. The fact that two Muslim nations think the threat of Islamism warrants these attacks is news. The fact that they did not give the U.S. a heads up is also pretty incredible.
