I wish to see the people of france demonstrating in the street against president Sarkozy the cheater in the election of 2007 and hang him. Is it right for him under the law of france to accept campaign donation from other country like Khadafy of Libya whom he wanted to be punished? What a big shame to the french people he did! Before he will attempt to clean the dirty of others he should wash himself with the acid first.

What Nicolas Zarcozy did to the people of franch through election cheating is more than the killing of jews by hitler. Saif Al-Islam should publish the evidence of nicolas zarcozy dirty work soon.

Scoundrel sarkozy's election was financed by Libyan dictator? What a scoundrel! What kind of "democrazy" is in the "west"? The REAL democracy is when elections limit funding to small amounts per each party, individual and no suspicious or large corporations are allowed to support elections at all! That I call a TRUE democracy! Everything else is COWDUNGOCRACY!

Libya paid dirtbag sarkozy to import millions of muslims into Europe and France! Dirtbag sarkozy himself is a semite and is glad to make Europe a Eurabistan. Impeach the dirtbag sarkozy now and install a TRUE democracy in Europe and USA!

What is taking place in Libya is an Intervention by big powers in affair of other nation state. it's that simple. Should we expect same power play in Bahrain, Yemen and Saudi Arabia ?

Saif is such an idiot, instead of making a point he actually confirmed that his father pilfered money belonging to Libyans, not that anyone did not already know this.

That information is to little to late I am afraid. But no one ever accused him of being smart

For God’s sake, no! In Yemen may be, but not in the Monarchies. Monarchies will not be touched. This entire carnage comes from the World’s Elite; financial, and status elite such as Monarchs. Elite against people, in the fight for the World Resources! And the dummies among people like Al-Qaida, and Western and other volunteer soldiers, are being used: to kill and get killed or maimed for the World Elite, and against the general population like themselves.

This is a unique point where I will agree with you about Saif not being very smart. Actually, I think he did a lot of damage to his father. But it is because he is naive, and naiveté is the characteristic of the innocents.

However, I disagree with your constant harping about Gaddafi “pilfering the money belonging to Libyans”. He was the leader, and in every country in the World, including ours, it is up to the leader to decide, where the money is worth spending. And that includes: buying the influences, friendships, and similar; all in the interest of the Country.

And let’s examine where the Gaddafi’s money came from. From the oil! I recall one English person talking on BBC about his experience in the negotiation of Oil Contract, between his Company, and Gaddafi people. He mentioned that it was a gruelling affair, because Gaddafi wanted to extract every penny for his side. Of that Oil money, which Gaddafi procured, every Libyan obtained each month on his/her bank account certain sum of money, every month. Where do you see that? Our government sells our resources to private companies, and does whatever it wants with it, and nobody asks questions. And, our government gives us nothing on our bank account. Quite to the contrary, we give our government money in the form of taxes: from each of our earnings, each of our businesses, each of our sales, each of the property we possess. And we do not even ask where this money went, even if they spend them on Libyan Revolution.

So I think, that you, in the line with the Western governments, deny non-Western leaders the rights to lead. They have no rights to make financial decisions, or defence decisions, or any decisions. Therefore you do not recognize them as larders. Well, to me it is Racism.

This has been bothering me for sometime. Almost every Gaddhafi apologist I have ever talked to says that every Libyan got a generous amount of money regularly transferred by Gaddhafi's Government onto his bank account. Usually something like 2000 dollars a month. I don't know if this is true, sounds more like BS to me. You, as a Libyan, could clear this question up here once and for all.

Sure, a government can spend its national income as it sees fit. And if this means using part of it to help other needier countries, just fine by me. The point is though, that in Gaddhafi's case foreign expenditure not only took up a major part of the national income, something unheard of in any other country, but seemed to be done to the personal whims of Gaddhafi himself to satisfy his egoistic inclinations.

Guest workers come in large numbers do not give at Gaddafi. Among the tribes of the money was divided, too, are not equal. Someone a lot, but to someone and just about anything. In any case, it was better than the current Libyan democracy, where decisions are taken by majority. Who has a lot of soldiers with machine guns, he also decides. Who has small fighters - going in the ass. In Libya, and even now it is very liberal. Propagandist Observer have rewards.

It is the biggest joke you ever heard. It is totally untrue and BS.
Now, Libyan population is 6.000.000 (6 million ). The total amount that gaddafi had to give each month is : 12 billion US dollars!
These people only gather crap and throw it up here

The difference is I believe this kind of spending should be a decision made by representatives of the people like in Canada and the US. Ghadaffi did not even concider the welfare of the people of Libya. He used funds to try to create this Kingdom and have himself made King and did not worry about the consequences

You are talking nonsense. Gaddafi left Libya without the debt and with the significant amount of money on the Country’s bank accounts. Find another Country in such a sound financial condition! Some of you people like hear-say and you are pretty imaginative in that. But the facts plainly oppose you.
As for these paid propagandists, they will say, what they are paid to say.
