Stephen Harper says the mounting success of rebel forces battling Moammar Gadhafi’s regime means Canada’s military mission to Libya could end in the near future – but the Prime Minister cautions the North African country will need international help for some time to come.
Libya, he said, needs a whole range of assistance, “all the way from monetary assistance to capacity building. I suspect also there may be some more practical matters of logistics and law and order. We stand ready to help any way we can.”
Look, people, Gadhafi was a bad dude. He did good for his country when he helped free it from Italian rule (ew) and it's hardly as though Libya will fall back under the boot of Europe. In this century, the West and Libya alike benefit from opening the country up to cooperation with the West and more intercourse between it and the rest of the world. Gadhafi kept the country closed out of paranoid fear of colonialists, but colonialism is dead and buried. Libya needs some external investment.
