Plus Ghaddafi's efforts to form an African union. And his nasty habits of providing cheap fuel, free health care and education for everyone, highest standard of living in Africa, and other completely evil and dictatorial wasting of all that oil revenue. We had to save those dumb Libyans from his evil dictatorship, by blowing them all to kingdom come. His 90 percent approval rating by those stupid people shows how dumb they are, and how thankful they will be now that we have helped them out. We are spreading more democracy. Just cause they are too dumb to know that they want "democracy" doesn't mean we should not help them to see the light.
