I never heard of nordic mummies i carthage however it was unlikely they were native to the region as they would have got skin cancer and died quickly anyways. From april to october weather in the 100 degrees is slightly above average temps in most of north africa which is a giant desert. Unless there was a nordic occupation that you would like to enlighten me about, i believe you are wrong.

We (the US) are at least benevolent rulers, hence the reason why we still have our colonial empire unlike Italy.
Agreed, half of Italy itself did not have running water and electricity in 1920s anyways. This is why there are so many Italians in the USA and diaspora today. Italy did not do much to develop other countries. @ the other guy, Libyans had running water from the days of ancient rome wake up

He's part of the whole deconstructionist movement, originally begun in the Frankfurt School. In its latest form, everything from the airplane to the cellular phone was invented by non-Europeans, though evil Europeans falsely claim credit for these things, as a result of "institutional racism" and "White Supremacy".

I actually had a music teacher in elementary school in the latter half of the 1990s who was of Italian descent and regularly traveled to Italy and she claimed that there were some rural parts of Italy that had only just received running water in the 1990s!

Is it true? I doubt it but I have no doubt that even here in the US we have some rugged parts without electricity and running water so it's possible.

Of all of the north african states Libya is the most african as even the leader identifies himself more with africa than arabs and the middle east and they gennerally look more black than their arabic counterparts
