And what about the 1 million plus civilians that the coalition has killed in Iraq and Afghanistan? Which far exceeds what Saddam killed. If you think
the attacks on Iraq and Libya are about anything other thanoil you are very sadly mistaken. It has always been about the OIL
There was never a justification for the invasion of Iraq, do you not realise they could of taken out Saddam without any invasion? Just one spotter on
the ground and one cruise missile and job done, but that way they didn't control the oil, boots on the ground were necessary along with their own
The same will happen in Libya too, an excuse will be made, Gaddafi will be killed or forced to leave, then a puppet government will be formed and life
for people in will degrade with mass poverty.
You think Gadaffi was was bad? He did not tax his citizens, their housing, education, healthcare were all FREE, he built a huge water pipe across the
desert to ensure water was in supply for all of his major cities, free of charge I might add, as well as irrigating the desert to give them food
Yeah he is a control freak, he hates the west, so what everyone hates the west now, not surprising really considering how we just bomb everyone. He is
linked with some terrible events, the Lockerbie Bombing for example, and having terrorist training camps etc, but those were directed towards the
west, the ones who had isolated him because he refused a central bank and refused to bow down to them. His hatred was directed outwards, not towards
his own people.
I am not saying he is perfect, but his removal is based on the economics of war and continued imperialism and at the end of the day it is not for the
west to dictate who runs what country, that is for the country themselves to decide
