  1. This is going to lead to all kinds of murder, torture and mayhem in Libya in the years to come, you’ll see. And I DON’T believe the propaganda that Ghaddafi orchestrated the pan am bombing. That was started just toset the world against him and get nato help. Hell, I am pretty sure that obama was the one who orchestrated the pan am bombing……..

  2. Re: Pan AM, info suggests Iran with Libya possibly involved as a contractor. But I agree with you: the islamic fruit cakes have been handed Libya, which they could never have taken without the help given by the idiots in the EU. Incidentally it is more than likely that Ghadaffi was not shot while running away, but was simply shot mutiply while being held as a prisoner. I do not believe the story emmanting from the islamists that now appear to control the country.

  3. After Gaddafi…more of the same…nothing to see here…move on…!!!

    “”…Into Tripoli’s at times dangerous power vacuum has stepped a well-organised group of self-proclaimed Islamists who dominate the city’s military and municipal authorities. Elsewhere in the country, while the transitional authorities scramble to restore basic levels of governance, the mosque has provided both a rallying cry for unity and a reassuring symbol of continuity.

    These are stories that have played out everywhere that the Arab Spring has taken hold: Islamist parties and militias – drawing on the certainties of a people’s faith at a time of unsettling instability, and tapping into networks that have often proved more effective than governments in providing basic services – have quickly stepped into the space left by deposed dictators.

    And whenever a dictator has fallen, the spectre of radical Islamists ascending to power has sent ripples of fear through Western capitals: the role of Islam remains the great unanswered question of the Libyan revolution, and of the wider Arab Spring.
    But Libyan history suggests that we may have more to fear from an unstable and divided Libya than we do from the Islamists that would seek to unite the country…”

    After Gaddafi | Anthony Ham | October 22, 2011

  4. since im writing thru my iphone ill make my point short. im a libyan, i left libya right before the revolution. for those that bothered ranting about some conspiracy theory regarding my country. i kindly ask you to give it a rest. i am very well aware of NATO’s involvement an aware of almost all aspects surrounding the libyan revolution.i must say that most of peoples comments are rediculous. im aware of the political state of libya and america, and i have to strongly disagree with your anarchistic views because libya has technically undergone a textbook revolution. the support given by NATO was demanded by the majority of libyans,who after 42 years want nothing but a better life. the support given by “the west” is merely political. in the sence that they agree with our requirements, which obviously is an end to despotism, dictatorship and isolation. Our people – the 6 million of them deserve more than to be a dumbed down human plebian. all people are entitled to prosper not the few rich, and im speaking of the gaddafi family and their associates. we deserve to have a high standard of knowledge, and deserve the right to control our governors. we are not slaves, we are people, and so far, we have acheived what we needed. i am proud to be a libyan. on the other hand, those that consider the large corporations enslaving people financially, well, there is no escape to that. we need to sell and they need to buy. it all depends on the laws of business. one thing for sure though is that we wont allow a second tyrant. wether it be a physical or a financial entity. our will as people of libya proved we can acheive things. i am looking forward to the future of my country with great excitement and curiosity. thank you.
