More media lies. Libya was being governed by the Jamahariya and not by Gaddaffi personally. All Libyans benefitted from the oil boom. There was free housing, health and education. Women were treated as equals and Libya was a prosperous state. Now we have a mess with bombing and killing an everyday occurrence. The riches of Libya are now in the hands of France, Britain and the US. Of course Gaddaffi is a tyrant whatelse could he be?

I truly agree with the medialies comment....Libya had the highest degree of literacy in all of Africa....83 education,medical,electricity, ,subsidized housing, and consult your encyclopedia....ANYONE over the age of 18 could vote. There were regional councils and local councils .much like US state and city. Gadaffi controlled the military,as our national govt. Does. Unlike the treatment and murderous end that awaits Seif, Gadaffi had humane conditions for mainly political prisoners. The death of Seif will reflect the western betrayal of agreements between Gadaffi and the CIA,plus those made with the UK. Remember, Cameron couldnt wait to silence Gadaffi.
