Look up how Ahmadinejad lives please, look up what car he still drives please, look up how he refuses wealth even though he can take it if he want it, PLEASE. This is a good man being portrayed as a horrible being, what's worse is that he is on OUR side, listen to his speeches, do me a favor, he keeps trying to warn everyone of the global conspiracy, how they want to do to him what they did to Kadhaffi... This is an independent sovereign and a thorn in the eye of TPTB who, we all know, want control of every nation. Is it really surprising that the only "enemies" are also the ones that still decide what they do instead of being guided by the UN etc..? To get rid of sovereign nations you must first rid of the leaders that refuse to give up said sovereignty.
You know, Ahmadinejad even said he doesn't believe in the use or ownership of nuclear weapons, and he is right. He gave a logical explanation that would make sense to any human being had they not been blinded by the lies and propaganda. He is fully aware that owning nuclear weapons does nothing positive and that it is a threat to mankind...edit on 6/7/12 by ThisIsNotReality because: (no reason given)
Mass Graves Reveal Evidence of Abuses Under Gaddafi
by Rachel Hastings on October 11, 2011
In the aftermath of the collapse of Muammar Qaddafi’s Libyan regime, potential evidence of past human rights violations has surfaced. However, even as Libyans navigate the challenges of building a new government, they must also address how to identify and preserve evidence of past crimes.
Reports suggest that a recently discovered mass grave may contain 1,200 victims of a 1996 massacre in Tripoli’s Abu Salim prison. The slaughter was largely covered up by the Libyan government; in fact, many victims’ families were unaware of the deaths for years. The location of the bodies was never revealed.
In a recent interview with Human Rights Watch, Stefan Schmitt, Director of the International Forensic Program at Physicians for Human Rights, described the challenges posed by dealing with this potential evidence.
Additionally, numerous mass graves that are the result of killings in the last days of the Gaddafi regime have been discovered in the past few weeks. Along with the infamous prison site at Abu Salim, they may provide important forensic evidence of what actually occurred during Qaddafi’s reign—if the sites are properly examined by experts.

As for Gadaffi, he will go down in true history as one of the great leaders of our time. It was very sad the way he was taken out. I was ashamed to call myself an American for a little while after that. These guys are true leaders and maybe the last, including the great Hugo Chavez. I think it's hilarious when people call them evil dictators.
