Qaddaffi was so bad, you'd think that anything would be better, let's hope it will be better.

It could be that all we did was break the country with a big hammer, and some new tyrant is going to pick up that hammer and rule over the people, making the era of Qaddaffi look like the good old days by comparison.

Looks like Egypt is heading that route. Won't be surprised if Libya follows suit.

Thanks...it will take me a while to get with the format...getting back to the killing of the dismissed dictator. I hear they have the corpse in some sort of supermarket cool bin....The place where they usually keep the vegitables...kind of like on sale...

So this is the society that the allies wasted a lot of time money and munitions on ...could you imagine if it was Bush all dolled up and laying in state alone with the cabbage and carrots....The stupiest thing that is going around is that Obama is some sort of hero...as if he suited up in commado gear...and leaped on the old guys back and cut his throat personally - so damned silly ...It is the theatre of the absurd...Maybe Obama had better stop taking cheap shots and tell his greedy elitist handlers to stop plundering from their own citizens..now that would be heroic!

Everybody in Libya had housing, a car, healthcare, education, including college, all provided by Gaddafi - yes, those were the good ol days.

All you have now is a damaged infrastructure - and oil vultures over head coming in to feed.

The issue isn't "dictatorship", rather it is "sovereignty".

Financial sovereignty, that is!

I mean, look at Norway. Fiat money!

If money is real, it has power.

It must be destroyed and replaced with communist money.

In 2004, Chavez was awarded the Qaddafi International Prize for Human Rights, a prize granted by the Libyan leader. Cuba’s Fidel Castro and Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega have also won the award.

Maybe what we've been told about these leaders is a lie too. I do know that sanctions on a country, only hurt the people of that country, not the rulers.

I think the plan calls for sanctioning Libya AFTER mission accomplished.
