If these 'rebels' were genuine, they would not have done so much damage. I understand the Libian water has been polluted with seawater as well. I think we may see some very difficult days ahead if the rebel forces think they will form the military in Libia.
Who have we got running these wars? Who in reality has the authority to take this action? How can what has been done be justified?
I expect Mr Gaddaffi was so good at playing the west at their own game, he was prepared to drop a few western leaders in the poop by coming clean over who and how the 9/11 attack was done. I think lots of arms deals went through Libia. For instance weapons for Ireland were bought there, probably with american money. The same goes for all weapons traded into conflict zones.
I am sure it is the people who make the weapons, that then give money to dictators and terrorists to buy the weapons, and then they tell them what to shoot at. All the while using the money they should put into building health services, schools, and infrastructure from the people who they tax.
I suppose if they pay their civil servants so much, they pay a chunk of tax back, but it all just seems ridiculous. Why do these people want to destroy the world?
How can we come up with alternatives, and different political structures that do not allow these atrocities to happen?
What is wrong with having a society that chooses it's law? I think western law is completely defunct right now, so at least if there is a spiritual law that people want to base their lives on it's better than the anarchy we live with.
There are so many things that have happened to my Husband and Myself that would rightfully be dealt with in a legal system that was concerned with the rights and wrongs of things, rather than if we can afford to pay the lawyers fees, or afford to lose. Even contemplating litigation is too disturbing.
How evil manages to invade our lives, is by not standing up and speaking out. It has to be resisted in our heart and the mind, before any good can come of our actions
