I wish everyone could understand the truth about this man. He was no saint by any means, and in fact, I do not think he was any worse than any western
leader. Western leaders kill many as well, although often times it remains secret, but while they are killing they are at the same time lying to the
people about either what they've done, or their reasons for doing it. Look at Bush going into Iraq. If it is something that cannot be hidden from the
public, then they lie about it, simply to gain support. Gaddafi, like I said, was not a "good" guy as far as most people use the word, but for a
leader in a country in Africa, I don't think he was "that" bad.
And the next important thing to realize, which is the entire point of your thread from my point of view, is that Gaddafi wanted to break with the
west. He wanted to create an African Union, he wanted to do things with oil, to benefit his and other African countries, and the US could not have
that. And they weren't the only country against this. And even more importantly, Gaddafi did not want to have to rely on US dollars. It was for these
reasons that he HAD to be taken out. He was gaining too much credibility among people who could actually get things done. Plus, he probably had a lot
of dirt on western leaders. It wouldn't surprise me, as he was not stupid. And it does not take a rocket scientist to realize that the CIA, and
probably other intel agencies, had a hand in the "revolution" in Libya. The rebels only came out on top because of the foreign intervention.
So while there are people out there saying he was a horrible person, you need to realize that your country's leader probably is as well. And this is
true even if your leader is Obama. Especially true. If you buy what the government says regarding international matters, without reading the writing
on the wall, without actually looking into what has occurred in the past, etc, then I feel sorry for you. And in fact, you are simply serving to act
as inadvertent disinformation agents for the US government.
