I got that from the few Journalists and Libyan citizens who managed to get lengthy stories out about Libya in the many years before the World decided it's leader needed to be murdered in the street.
Do you really think and believe NATO or Sen John McCain cares about the Libyan people? they care about the interest.

been around these types of places for years. surface info...yeah, got it.
but I don't know what bilderberg is...
saying that name is like telling me that the elks or moose lodge has annual meetings...or that TKE is having a kegger tonight...
you guys talk a lot but provide nothing of substance.
you can laugh it away but perhaps this is a contributing factor to why people, sheople, are beginning to turn away from your message and do other things.
The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of approximately 120 to 140 guests from North America and Western Europe, most of whom are people of influence. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications. Meetings are closed to the public.
Crossing Continents meets Libyan schoolchildren, who long to be accepted by the international community, but are surrounded by reminders of a sinister past.
"We are like any teenager in the UK," says Amira who even admits to listening to Britney Spears. "We are all the same."
That seems fair enough until you notice that all these girls are wearing military uniform to school.
Each week they have a lesson in military matters, from military law to how to hold a gun, with some basic practice thrown in.
Officially it is 1369. But just two years ago Libya was living through 1429. No one can quite name the day when the count changed, especially since both remain in play.
A newspaper headline last week, for example, heralded the latest legal bulletin, No. 4 for 1431, while the paper itself was dated 1369. Event organizers throw up their hands and put the Western year in parenthesis somewhere on their announcements. Other Libyans just throw up their hands.
Sometimes it seems that two Libyas exist and rarely intersect.
There is Colonel Qaddafi's Libya, a rich oil state that craves recognition on the world stage. That Libya used to attract attention by underwriting a host of violent groups deemed criminal by the West, but it tired of its status as international pariah. That Libya has been seeking redemption lately by playing the village elder who will unify Africa.
The other Libya is the country where the rest of the four million to five million Libyans actually live. No one seems to know quite how many there are. Their roads are potholed, their telephones unreliable and the young lack meaningful jobs.
Some Arab governments might arrest people for similar jokes, but Libya is not a sinister place on that scale. It is closed, though. The most important issues, like an accounting for all the oil revenue, never make it to the people.
But Colonel Qaddafi plans to declare his own U.S.A., the United States of Africa, at a conference in March at Surt, on the Libyan coast, and to base an African congress there.

and based on what you've said, which part of it would justify action against it?
I don't know what my neighbors are doing but sometimes its loud and it involves people that don't live here.
are these bilderbergs holding something that belongs to you and refuse to return it?
