Well i really dont know what to say or think here.
If any of this is true, really genuuinely true, then something MAJOR is going on here.
5: Gaddafi was returning to a gold standard.
6: Libya sits on Africa's largest oil and natural gas reserves.
7: A few weeks before Libya was invaded, Gaddafi had decided to sell his oil to only Russia, China and India.

If Gaddafi really was a saint to the Libyan people would they really let their country falter? I mean c'mon now, he was their dictator for many decades. If the people of Libya really were pleased with their leader for all Gaddafi's done for them, would they really go without a fight?
OP might have some truth to it but let's not make Gaddafi into some saint or something...

Some of it might be true, but he must have done something wrong to turn so many Lybians against him.

so i guess i wont get any reply to my post. I am asking if anyone can help my predicament or is it people are afraid to tackle the real issue that confronts real family's. Not idealistic young people, help me see what i can do with out in dangering the future of my kids which i am prepared to do so with in reason.
It's not you, even though so many on here is quick to jump on the Anti-American bandwagon (most are from the USA too!) they don't have any answers, all they know is what is wrong with the West and offer nothing to make it better!
I too worry about what the future holds for my kids and my 1 year old grandchild, but most conspiracy people are too busy trying to find everything we (the West) do is wrong and we are the root of all the evil in the world! Believe me, I know we aren't saints and I know the bombs that dropped from my B-52 killed innocents as well as bad guys but the truth of the matter is after experiencing life in 3rd world countries I will stand up and be counted as an American with all her faults!
Instead of worrying about how much we were involved in toppling a tyrant, let's try to fix what's broke!
Also, if Gaddafi was planning to only sell oil to our potential enemies I say to sooner we stop it the better!
I am not against using superior weapons to keep the bad people in check, if it means toppling a regime to make my kids safer in the future I will be the first to react!
We need a leader in the whitehouse with 'nads and stop pussy-footing around apologizing to the world!
Funny how the liberals wanted Obama so bad but if he does show a little force (like the killing of Bin Laden) all of a sudden "he is no better than Bush" comes out of your mouths!
I will say this for the man, he saw it was a lot harder to run a country as a liberal without carrying a big stick and is finally realizing Bush wasn't so bad (or else he feels he's got to stop blaming Bush not that his term is almost over!
We in the West better stick together and try to make this a better country for US!
It was a CIA orchestrated killing by bringing in hired thugs to kill the Libyan people, and blame it on Gaddafi.
