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...

Amen to that. People will continue to believe he's a bad guy. My friends from Iran have shown me all kinds of truth about their country and Ahmadinejad by translating his speeches for me. Im glad Im not alone when I defend him and Iran.

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.

These are the same claims some people have been making about other dictatorships, such as Cuba, and which are nothing but fantasies existing only on the people inventing these fantasies...

The human right abuses in Libya have been documented by SEVERAL Human right groups.


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 Tripolis 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.

DICTATORS can claim to the world that their nation has everything free, and the best of the best that can be offered, meanwhile the reality is quite the opposite to the claims made by DICTATORS and their regimes...

You mean like the Russian government under orders from Putin has been rewritting the history of Stalin, they even raided the largest Human Right group building in Russia and took away decades of investigation and evidence that showed the murder and genocide caused by Stalin, and they are changing the truth to portray him as "a great leader" meanwhile the truth is that he was a murderer??...

Now? It says Unemployment est. 30% (2004). Good job, troll - show 8 year old stats and claim that it's the UN's fault (not that the current situation is any better - I bet it's worse for now).

I think he was probably not as good as OP makes him seem...and not as bad as the media made him seem...that much I can say with a good deal of confidence.

All in all, we shouldn't have intervened...our government can start a war with absolutely anyone they want now, without difficult...just flood people's televisions with some stuff to make the people scared, and let the war begin. It's very sad.

If all loans were 0% due to law then why didnt they shut down the Libyan state owned bank which had an interest rate of 7%?

Since you are patently false here, source the rest of these claims.

Do I have to? If loans were set at a 7% interest rate then they are not interest rate free by law. A video saying something which is false doesn't suddenly make it not false. I fail to understand your response. You can check yourself what the interest rate was each year. Then again why check on facts which you want to be true.
