50. think more critically, as to what was going on (aka tens of billions in oil contracts, getting off
terrorist-WMD list, etc). Just like big multinationals do a cost benefit analysis when it comes to defects in products, or actions such as pollution, etc). If it cheaper to 'settle out of court' rather than fix a deadly situation, they will. Ford Pinto, and all that.

Qaddafi plays chess with the systemic controllers at multi-dimensional levels. He bought up a bunch of junk from remnants of the AQ Khan Pakistani nuke network for pennies on the pound, and turned that over to the US as evidence he was 'through with a nuke attempt'. When the Americans took it back, and saw that most of it was useless or broken, it was too late, the deals were signed.

Awfully quick reply from you as well, there is no way you looked at most of what I posted/linked. I think you will find it interesting.
