He has created one of the most prosperous and educated regions of Africa
DETROIT – About 2,000 Libyan students who attend U.S. colleges are getting a one-year reprieve in financial support after Libya resumed funding that was halted when the U.N. froze about $30 billion of that country's assets, the organization that administers the funds said.
The Canadian Bureau for International Education announced Wednesday that Libya transferred the money through its central bank to continue the Libyan-North American Scholarship Program. The funding covers tuition and monthly living allowances through May 2012 for the students and their dependents.

Has skarzy ever done anything remotely comparable?
The Western Half of the Country consists of about 70-80% of the Libyan population (So the U.S ,Nato Led rebels are the Minority) The U.S and Israel and NATO (North Atlantic Terrorist Organization) are terrorist Organizations they are trying to have a coup'detat against a leader that has brought much prosperity to the Libyan people.

It sounds like bull and bluster.

It's an interesting phenomena on ATS that people decide that Gadaffi is some kind of saint, because he finds himself at odds with Western Powers.

They want Gadaffi Dead but he did nothing compared to Syria and they haven't even taken action against Syria
The U.S is extremely hypocritical
I suspect you mean NATO, and not the US, right?
Are you saying, then, you think NATO should attack Syria?
I hope Gadaffi gets his payback
So you're rooting for Gadaffi? Even as he murders his own population? I dont support this NATO action. But to claim Gadaffi is innocent is odd.
