People may have said that Egypt had it bad, in which I think a money laundering; back stabbing regime is pretty bad. But the Libyan Government is not even close to how bad Egypt was. Thanks to Egypt, the people of Libya think they should have a new leader to get things spinning. In which I do not agree with in any way.
Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi became the leader of Libya after a coup in 1969. Yea that's a little more than 30 years... Egypt... He has been shown to be quite controversial, but overall he's a peace maker trying to make a better world for Africa, which desperately needs help. He became the leader after a bloodless take over from a Monarchy to a Socialist society (sounds like a great trade indeed).
This dude is extremely open as well:
Gaddafi also appeared to be attempting to improve his image in the West. Two years prior to the September 11th attacks Libya pledged its commitment to fighting al-Qa'ida and offered to open up its weapons programme to international inspection. The Bush administration did not pursue the offer at the time since Libya's weapons program was not then regarded as a threat, and the matter of handing over the Lockerbie bombing suspects took priority. Following the attacks of 11 September, Gaddafi made one of the first, and firmest, denunciations of the Al-Qaeda bombers by any Muslim leader. Gaddafi also appeared on ABC for an open interview with George Stephanopoulos, a move that would have seemed unthinkable less than a decade earlier.
Following the overthrow of Saddam Hussein by US forces in 2003, Gaddafi announced that his nation had an active weapons of mass destruction program, but was willing to allow international inspectors into his country to observe and dismantle them.
As one of the continent's longest-serving post-colonial heads of state, the Libyan leader enjoys a reputation among many Africans as a maverick statesman. In February 2009, upon being elected chairman of the African Union in Ethiopia, Gaddafi told the assembled African leaders: "I shall continue to insist that our sovereign countries work to achieve the United States of Africa."
He also has poured time and money into sub-sahara states to help them with their problems.
1. He's pushing towards a United Africa
2. He's extremley peaceful with the west and fellow Arab-nation states.
3. Gives charity to struggling countries
4. Gaddafi has vowed to "fight to the death" in defense of his leadership of the country.
All of these should show that he is a much more valuable leader than Libya deserves. I just hope that Western propaganda doesn't show it otherwise.
The citizens of Libya are blinded by the Egyptian revolution that they want one. You're not fighting for "freedom" you're fighting for ignorance, you're just joining on the "freedom" Bandwagon thinking it's headed towards a better life, when it's actually headed to the edge of a cliff.
