1. Oh what a tangled web we weave...

...when we use our bombs to overthrow foreign governments.

The only winner so far in Libya is the IMF, the Global Oil Corporations, and the IMF.
Go check out their websites.

They are giddy with their new access to the resource riches of North Africa
which was previously blocked by Gaddafi.

For all his dictatorial megalomania, Gaddafi is a committed pan-African - a fierce defender of African unity. Libya was not in debt to international bankers. It did not borrow cash from the International Monetary Fund for any "structural adjustment". It used oil money for social services - including the Great Man Made River project, and investment/aid to sub-Saharan countries. Its independent central bank was not manipulated by the Western financial system. All in all a very bad example for the developing world.
