We’ve seen it time and time again, from ancient rulers, to Adolf Hitler, to modern dictators like this one. The real question is why? What drives these men to treat people so badly. Although the world seems to be ever evolving, these men seem to never change.

It has been proven time and time again, that Muslim immigrants have not or will not fully integrate themselves into Western democracies. Germany and the United Kingdom have openly stated that multiculturalism has failed miserably! The blatate open execution of Gaddafi in itself proves that lawless of the land within Libya. If this country is serious about some form of constitution, granted Gaddafi was a despot, he still has human rights regardless – let him rot in jail then after receiving a fair trial! Let’s remember that Libya’s interim leader, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, used to be Gaddafi’s Justice Minister from 2007 – 2011. So imagine what occurred during his watch. He has openly stated that Sharia Law will be implemented which means no interest bank loans and multiple wives for the men. This in my opinion is not a definition of a liberal democracy. There is no exclusion of Islam from the running of the country. Sharia Law will be implemented into the courts system and the rest is history. Politicians of the West have to get it through their thick heads that we cannot force democracy into a Muslim country. Their religious component of their life is so ingrained within their culture that they cannot separate state from religion. Come visit Libya in a year’s time and see what seed has been planted by the Freedom Fighters!

The article’s lack of understanding (or its wealth of disinformation – take your pick) is clearly exposed in this “…American drones will soon be flying, if they are not already doing so, over the hideouts of the Al Qaeda in the Magrheb.”

The NATO-funded, NATO-armed al Qaeda brigades of infamous al Qaeda operative Belhadg, not NTC Military Commander, are the most active and most feard in all of NATO’s so-called Libyan Rebel ranks.

Painting this blatant neo-colonial, genocidal invasion (e.g. 10K strike sorties) as a ‘democratic’ rebellion is outlandish Orwellian double-speak. It was and is (not over yet) NATO authored regime change job from day one!
