Re: Question - what should the world do about the situation in Libya?

The citizens of that country are quite capable of doing what must be done Everyone else should just mind their own business (Hillary are you listening )

It's millions of people against one mad dictator. The odds are heavily in favour of the general population IF they want it badly enough

Same goes for all the other non democratic Arab and African countries. North Korea too. The parasitic dictators must go.

Their time is up.

Re: Question - what should the world do about the situation in Libya?

I think USA and China should both reclaim the territory for themselves for the oil, send thousands of troops leading to dangerous proximity, and when all UNO resolutions are abhorted and US President declare that all Chinese must be destroyed in Nuclear Holocaust, and Chinese Prime make alliance with Russia to obliterate USA, then they could declare Nuclear Total War. And all because of Libya!!

Re: Question - what should the world do about the situation in Libya?

Strange thing is that Gaddafi in his first few years in power (the 70s) was pretty succesful and deserved some credit. He dramatically improved living standards, housing the homeless people that had crowded Tripoli for years on end, reducing the stiffling influence that he tribal lords held over the government, and putting all children in school (including girls).

But after that bright start, it was all a downslope towards sheer lunacy. A bodyguard of virgin Amazons (!!), I doubt anything quite as bizarre happened even in Duvalier's Haiti!!

Whatever happened to him? It has been said that Reagan's bombing of his palace (in which his daughter was killed) played a role in derailing his mind, ever since then he got more and more involved in terrorism and vengeance seemed to be his overriding goal for a long time.

But really, I guess I can somehow understand how 30 years of absolute power can make one lose touch and become self-complacent and corrupt... but... a guard of virgin Amazons and those uniforms -not to speak of straffing demonstrators with machineguns-??????? To explain that one needs to suffer from something far worse than mere authoritarianism.

Someone should open a loonybin for retired tyrants (with admittance preferred before they take up politics, but open any time). The Swiss should pay for it, after all it's always them who reap the benefits from such regimes... (well, to be fair, them... and all the rest of us Westerners).

It is one thing to bring down a goverment and a leader, but quite another thing to replace one system with another. That takes quite a bit of good fortune.

yeah... a period of systemically supplying the people with propaganda is required to pull it off successfully... let the people know there is an option, and they'll rise... they wont rise for nothing...

the will is there i'm sure, but matching the will is a tyrannical rule that is one step ahead of any potential uprising... i'm sure it's well known in modern libya what happens to anyone involved in the slightest hint of collaboration...

and the collective mass sit their arse down...

USA are considering military intervention, they want to take over the oil plants like in Iraq.
Everything is proceeding as intended...

Reagan bombed his palace because of his deep involvement in terrorism. Could it be that his mind was already derailed?

Re: Question - what should the world do about the situation in Libya?

The latest United Nations report on human rights in Libya commends Libya for the advances made. The report is expected to be approved by the United Nations Human Rights Council on March 18th.
So why all the fuss when things are going so well for Libyans?

Send them all to Geneva, they'll feel quite comfy there.

Gaddafi had 700 millions on Swiss accounts that were frozen. 30 Billions of his money were frozen in the USA. hope this helps a bit.
