Cant help but refute the opening statements about Libya. All with knowledge of mideast know that Libya had highest standard of living in all of Africa...world book and even newspapers prior to war stated as such. Free education thru college, many came from Senegal,Nigeria,even south Africa. Free medical and no one was hungry in Libya. Gadaffi was never as cruel as saddam Hussein. Condoleezza rice stated the same when Gadaffi negotiated with US and sent his chemical weapons to US to be diffused in Tennessee. So says Condoleezza RIce. Saudi's recently beheaded a woman for sorcery. How barbaric,inhuman is that...yet this type of thing did not happen in Gadaffis Libya. Gadaffi was more about censorship.
