Libya has been destroyed by America and European countries systematically.As they promised earlier, they are not helping Libya now and not releasing their assets.Gadafi should come back to save this country.The so called western powers lost their credibility at international level. They have to take the responsibility of rebuilding Libya and killng Gadafi. I hope that one of the family members of Gadafi should come out to restore stability in the country. otherwise, it will go to dogs.

Security on the ground need help from every one but the current government is working on it we do not have the problem of rubbery but we have the problem of Hijacking,kidnaps and killing and all crimes are related to revenge or drugs smuggling ( This type of crimes it dose not involve normal people ). Nearly every house in Libya has a weapon so weapon can be used to protect or be used for carrying a crime. The current government is working on this issue ( Weapon Legislation ).

Gaddafi era we had very tight security also if we compare daily business Gaddafi time was better. Today construction business is flourishing with the same with local trade but overall business in Gaddafi time was better on the other hand if the current government start its yearly spending budget than we will see an economical growth never seen in Libya before and that is way all international large companies are viewing Libya as the next country for investment . We have been hit by a large wive that was needed to change the old government and at the moment we are dealing with the small waves but they are coming to their end , Libya will be better than Dubai soon we have the money , sea , weather and moor.

You ask what Gadaffi did for the Country,just look at this list,you have once again allowed the forces of Colonialism and Imperialism to interfere in your Country,what the Hell is the matter with you people do you like being under Foreign domination? yes those weapons went to the IRA did you also know British agents tried to kill Gadaffi more than once?also there werw weapons coming from America for the IRA,and what i saw during that so called uprising made me sick,from day one in Bengahzi black people were being beheaded and lynched in the streets,i don't know if you are from that City if so you will remember i think it was a Policeman who was hung from the Town Hall window then beheaded while people took photos on their cell phones,those people are savages its as simple as that,then there were the WW2 Military graves that were desecrated that didn't happen when Gadaffi was in Power,you say i should visit Libya i wouldn't feel safe being among people that can do things like that.

Sorry to say but I have been to Brazil and I have seen people leaving in the street and eating from rubbish pin and lived in the UK and visited most of Europa,Africa and Asia . I have to ask you how can you be a good student if you do not have a good teacher , Libyan will need all help from countries Like the UK,USA , France , Canada and Italy to give us the now how and you have to rember no one give free lunch So Money for Education,Health,Construction etc all needed to be paid for . What can we do with all our resources if we have been blinded by the last government for 40 years and our education level is going from bad to worst. We only have to work heard to develop this country and that could only happen if we have been told how. So do not say Run b4 you can walk.

I remember when I was in the UK and my family paid me a visit from Libya and my little sister was making to much noise , I have asked her then - why are you so violent her answer was we are the angry generation ( That was slogan been learned at school ) So what you have seen only represent what people have learned during Gaddafi time . So may be now we can teach our children history , music , culture and so on. Gaddafi time we have seen war was made and lost with Chad money was given to support new revaluations,prisoners were killed in side sales over 1200 person in one incident in Tripoli and terrorist organisation been supported .

May be you can remember the Police woman Miss Fletcher when she was killed by security officer from the Libyan embassy in London.. If Libyan security officer could have than that in London would would he do in his own territory (Libya). That was Gaddafi time.

ch

Life teach us that when there is war there is peace . When Germany hit the UK with Bomb and killed thousands of British people during first world war and 2ND world war they became good friends and they work together for the benefit of every one we only learn from our experience . You are correct when you said Libyan people have been killed as result of NATO bomb and I was very sorry to see that happened also I was very sorry to see Libyan kill each other , I always pot the blame on the person who give the NATO the chance to do so and that was Qaddafi. But we have to look at the future and start rebuild Libya.

This proves that you have no case against Gadhafi but heatred. Retarded, you don't get it.
The Guy from Red Deer canada is asking some specific questions,he wants comparative data not your subjective opinion. He is desappointed I can bet although he might be a supporter of the new libyan authorities.

It is good to hear that there is optimism in Libya. I am sad that the crime is still there but I guess that came with a power vaccum and people trying to establish the new government. Libya is a very fortunate country in that healing will happen quicker because of the amount of oil in Libya. I will be wonderful to see the country growing and the people of Libya enjoying peace again without fear.

Most of the world is supporting the new Libya and wants to see success for Libya. You will have people like Oliver sending nasty messages of twisted information just because he is a racist that supports tyrants and wants to see countries like Libya run by a tyrant and owning the people to serve only the leader, well Libya took care of that problem and will get the country back in order because the people want to.

This coming from the people that are sucking the Rain Forest dry, killing the indigenous people just to get the resourses from the jungle, you must be proud of yourselves and write a thank you letter to those people. In the mean time, buzz off, Libya is doing great and will one day have complete control of its own country without the need of some Brazilian wackjob mouthing off.
