Human Rights Watch says it has seen no evidence of mercenaries being used in eastern Libya. This contradicts widespread earlier reports in the international media that African soldiers had been flown in to fight rebels in the region as Muammar Gaddafi sought to keep control.

The fact that
a) There is no proof there were any airstrikes on his own civilians- infact there is proof to the contrary from the Russian military
b) The claims that he hired mercanaries are false
c) The West is eager to intervene
d) Libya is one of the few states whose economy is not predominantlly controled by the West
e) Libya has the largest oil reserve in Africa
- should make anyone who knows anything about prior U.S interventions suspicous.

They aren't black workers, they are hired mercenaries from sub-Saharan Africa. It's kind of hard to say that it is genocide when these guys choose to be paid and work for Gadaffi.

Oh ya Gahdafi is such a swell guy, a real humanitarian maybe yall should hop on a plane and head on over to Libya. You could give Gahdafi a helping hand. Since Libya is the country of the free and all im sure it would be 10x's better living there than in Canada or the USA.
