I think they mean 'especially'

"Americans and, for that matter, all Westerners are treated hereabouts with a warmth and gratitude rarely seen in any Muslim country — even those with 100,000 American troops — in probably half a century or more."
- "In Libyan Rebel Capital, Shouts of Thanks to America and the West," The New York Times
So wait, Americans are perceived more favorably in places their government isn't occupying with 100,000 soldiers and an equal number of trigger-happy private contractors? Strange!

    This war is going on for a long while yet, for the usual reasons, but also this.

    So some kids are naming their kids "Susan"? This stuff is clearly intoxicating to NYT and their ilk. They... they want us again!

    I also guess this is why I can't find even superficial polling numbers of actual public opinion in Libya on war.
