To be fair all round, perhaps the History books should leave out the following;
Though it does somehow balance the argument does it not????
No, it doesn't ... Ghaddafi was stupid, that isn't the question.
What is being said, and what then happened is not the same thing at all. As is said in the bible, "by their actions, thous shalt know them". Not by
their words, their promises or rumors.
All of these so called "bad guys", Ghaddafi, Saddam Hussein, that were supposed to be evil and corrupt. Neither went on, nor did they use any force
in their wars. Despite the rumors of their weapons of mass destruction, they did not use these. However, the allies have used these same weapons in
all of these countries. Renowned for the use of depleted uranium shells, that leave behind radiation sickness, that have caused the deaths of
numerous people, as well as caused infants to be born malformed in the thousands.
"By their actions, thou shallt know them"
That Ghaddafi was against the western powers, is well known. That he followed the Soviet, during the soviet times is also well known.
These things, however will not be put into history, but will balance the arguements, won't they?:
Idi Amin was a lunatic, insane, but when he first came to power he was not however. At his original initation, he was welcomed by all western
powers, as well as eastern, and Uganda itself. It is a well known fact, that it was Britain that created the atmosphere for the coup, that brought
Idi Amin to power, not Ghaddaffi. As is said, power curropts and he became the monster we all know. At the time, when he was the monster ... neither
Ghaddafi or anyone else, really supported him.
Idi Amin has more in common with the current rebbels of Lybia, than with the Lybian dictator. He was supported by foreign powers, to get into power.
These foreign powers, fought against the Soviet union and brought about the end of it. During the Yougoslavia war, the western powers claimed Serbia
was responsible for "ethnic" cleansing. Pictures were in the news papers, of starving prisoners in camp, and made to be similar to pictures from
WWII, of starving jews in german camps.
The swedish prime minister, Carl Bildt, went to New York and took the job of being the head on leader on negotiations between the parties in
Yougoslavia. His consensus was to NOT make peace. He forced the "soviet" side of the parties, to make deals and then made fun of it being equal to
the German deals in lithauen. Made to isolate and destroy their interrests.
This same person, was then the head of Lundin Oil Co. Which is doing it's business in Sudan, and is under endigtment, for forcibly moving hundreds of
thousands of people from their homes, including killing numerous. To remove them from the oil fields.
This is the "true" history for you.
And what is most concerning of all these facts, is the one and the biggest factor of all factors. AL QAIDA is fighting side by side, with NATO.
I'm amazed at all the imbecile Americans, that went to war and murdered milions of people because Al Qaida attacked them. Now, you don't hear so much
as a single plop ... not a beep, nor a meep.
It's what we call TREASON, in any context imaginable.
