Gaddafi is no longer in charge of Libya and because of all the blood that has been spilt the people will never allow any dictators to come and tell them what to do again. Although his PR machine is working night and day on the interenet with lies at least the Libyan people know the truth and I would hope that everyone else will open up their eyes just a little to find out that truth without just excepting what outsiders are saying! Their's a saying to get the truth from the horses mouth not some second hand chinese whispers! I trust I have made my point clear?
BTW Dreamingod, are you just finding a website and posting the news about Libya without bothering to find out the facts of the matter at hand and whether it is actually true or not?
Thanks for providing another perspective to the invasion/situation in Libya. Your link is definitely better in that it provides more detail on local intel.

has a satirical approach to presenting news, and his message is sometimes lost in witty justoposition of meaning. He presents news in an objective fashion, and describes the differing viewpoints. He seems to point our there is more than meets the eye
when it comes to Gaddafi's role in Libya
- people freedom versus oppression.
I don't recall where I read another perspective that Gaddafi secretly gave half of his army to the people's freedom fighters to resist Nato led forces, and made alliances with South Korea in the GMR Great Man-made River Water Supply Project
Who is the 'Liberator?'
Who is the 'Oppressor?'
Gaddafi local Dictator (so say the Western Press) VS NATO-US international Dictator?
Maybe it is the case of who is willing to free the people of Libya from economic oppression due to lack of water, and change the landscape of Libya deserts to lush greenland for agricultural production.
Since there is so much intrigue, disinformation, and I can't read the Libyan native language, Arabic I (and so do most people in the non-Arab ic speaking countries) must rely on translations and unfortunately experience the 'Chinese Whispers' effect.The main threat
to the powers that be
, (see Mind Control System Pyramid Control Structure http://thecrowhouse.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6295
) is not
just the economic threat of Libya's vast oil reserves (Libya possesses 3.5% of the world's total oil reserves) to the Oil-based corporations & Western Powers, but another imminent threat introduced by water

Joining in celebrating the inauguration of the artificial river were dozens of Arab and African heads of state and hundreds of other foreign diplomats and delegations. Among them were Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, King Hassan of Morocco, the head of Sudan, Gen. Omar El Beshir, and Djibouti's President Hassan Julied.Col. Muammar Qaddafi
told the celebrants: ``After this achievement, American threats against Libya will double.... The United States will make excuses, [but] the real reason is to stop this achievement, to keep the people of Libya oppressed.'' Qaddafi presented the project to the cheering crowd as a gift to the Third World
. Greening the desert
Over 95% of Libya is desert, and the new water sources can open up thousands of hectares of irrigated farmland. At present over 80% of the country's agriculture production comes from the coastal regions, where local aquifers have been overpumped, and salt water intrusion is taking place. The Great Man-Made River will relieve this. The water now flowing will immediately supplement supplies for domestic and industrial needs in Benghazi and Sirte. But Libyan officials plan for 80% of the overall project's flow to eventually be used for irrigating old farms, and reclaiming some desert lands. Since 20% of Libya's imports are foodstuffs, expanded water supplies are a means to greater self-sufficiency. http://american_almanac.tripod.com/libya.htm
