One of them, yes.
Gadaffi as it happens was considered the "bouncer" of Europe. He prevented mass migration from Libya into Europe from Africa and elsewhere and now he's gone Libya has become the feared gateway to Europe

None of the dictators that have been removed were good guy. But I bet the people who live there now would love to have them back.
Because what has been unleashed is far worse with no end in sight.
Sadam Hussain was a mmad man but he also did a lot for his country, same with Gaddafi, damn right the west knew what was going to happen, and that's why they did it .....
Saudi Arabia is the same way but the west plays nice with them .

Anyone with any insight could see what would happen with the Iraq war. It would open a can of worms in the area. Gaddafi was a cruel dictator but over people that had similar natures to dictate. Removing him would just open the door to another. Iraq was better off with him because he had the intelligence and authority to keep these people under control I said this and heard many others say the same thing. If poor uninfluential people could see this clearly I say why couldn't those appointed to the task of governing see it too?
That's the worse part, they do see it too. Here's Dick Cheney from 1994. Remember, he was the Secretary of Defense during the Persian Gulf War.
