The U.S. Gov has its issues yes, but this has nothing to do with the US Gov. This thread isn't about the US Gov. Its about Ghaddafi and all you people painting him to be some great hero who loved his people. Yet oppressed them beyond imagine. One of his first acts after taking power was abolishing their constitution. You got kids starving in his country and people having to go to neighboring countries to get medical treatment, all the while the Gadaffi family is paying Beyonce a million dollars to sing put a ring on it for him and his buddies. Yeah what a great leader who cared for his people.
This guy sponsored terrorism. He funded the IRA as well as a bunch of other Terrorist organizations. If you didn't notice, it wasn't Americans or hell it wasn't even NATO forces who were hitting him and sh*t. It was his own people, but the U.S. is to blame for framing him to be some bad guy when hes not? Wouldn't his own people know more than us? They asked for help, Gadaffi himself said he was gonna go into Benghazi and "kill the rats(aka his own people)". And you have your facts wrong, he never said the lockerbie bombing was in retaliation for the boat incident you alluded too. His adopted daughter died as a retaliation from the U.S for the 1986 Berlin discotheque bombing. Which was a club frequented by U.S Soldiers. k!lled 2 Americans I believe and injured around 220-230.
Also some facts from the revolution
oh and as far as your "thats all propaganda" claim
So yeah im done with this convo. Dude was an as*hole period. Now the way he was k!lled was inhumane and it shouldn't have happened like that. But I'm not gonna pretend he was some great guy. Its pretty telling that the people who did this to him, where his own people.
I never said he was an angel. The point that I made pretty clear and I think which no one can agree with is that ALL GOVERNMENTS have their issues. Gaddafi did a LOT of good for his people but also had some flaws. He was entitled to his own political perspectives and positions just as we are. To him, the Unites States were probably the real terrorist. I don't think that Gaddafi was the "worst" president ever.
There are people in every country that dislike the current powers. There are people here in the united states that think our current government is the worst ever and would put a bullet in our politicians' head given the opportunity. There are thugs in every country. These rebels that went after Gaddafi were thugs. And after seeing how they act, can you blame him for calling them "rats"??? Those rebels are crazy....I also saw on the news yesterday where 65 Gaddafi supporters were found murdered. Hmmm, can you blame him?
And while he wasn't perfect, at least those Libyans had the opportunity to go to school for free on scholarship and not be in debt their entire lives even if they did get some threats to have to support their president. In the US, we just gonna be working slaves our whole lives with fu*ked up credit while student loan debt surpasses all other debts and jobs move over seas LMAO....Get the rift, there's evils in every country. Trade offs. Our media just wanted this guy out of power and is brainwashing the average citizen that he was just all bad and we are all good over here when that's not the case.
