In response to American intervention in Libya there have been a handful of articles coming out in favor of Muammar Gaddafi. I think these people might either be Libyan nationalists, like the soldiers who raped Iman al-Obeidi, or just wing nuts who are so consumed with bitterness toward their government, justifiably so, that they're over looking the fact that no Arabs who came out in favor of democracy, whether it's been at the United State's expense or in their interest, has come out in favor of Gaddafi. The Libyan people have spoken. The Libyan people who I'm sure are strongly against American Imperialism, would rather choose, in this case at least, the lesser of two evils as opposed to a man who once said that, and I'm paraphrasing, "Aids isn't a problem, smart people don't have to worry about Aids."
I think this might be a communist thing, but Muammar Gaddafi is not a communist. Muammar Gaddafi has actually asked the world to refer to him as he king of Africa. There was an article on here a couple of weeks ago denigrating the use of psychology as a means of social control in regards to how it's been used to manipulate us into wanting Muammar Gaddafi out of power. I just want to say to that person, that we're talking about a guy who is too crazy for that to work, he alludes all psychological labels, he a wing nut, and if you were one of the Libyan "proletarates," you would be vehemently against Muammar Gaddafi.
I'm glad that their are people to question their government at every turn, and see the inherent evil and greed in everything they do. I hope though that in retaliation we're not projecting the image of a martyr onto a "rogue."
