Muammar Ghadafi - A Crazy Dictator

This terrible earthquake that played havoc with Japan suited Muamar Ghadafi down to the ground! It came exactly when he needed.

I will explain.

While the world is keeping an eye on the Japanese atomic crisis (as a result of the earthquake and tsunami), Ghadafi is taking advantage of this to kill his own people who want to see him out of power. Almost all TV around the world have been showing more about Japan than Lybia (and it is reasonable).

Today, the UN has approved a no-fly zone over Lybia and it means that military action against the Muammar Gadhafi regime could begin in the coming hours. It’s a little bit late, but it is still worth it.

The UN should react faster in cases like that. It’s almost the same that happened to Curds when Saddam Hussein killed thousands of them – and, at that time, the UN did nothing to stop such insanity. A dictator is a dictator no matter where he uses his power to subjugate people. In this especial case, it’s ironic to remember that only a year ago Ghadafi received a kind of “pardon” from some Western countries, related with his terrorist support on the Lockerbie case.

I hope the world can take some measure against this mad dictator and his son, Saif al-Islam. Different to Iraq, Libyans want to get rid of his leader and so, the world should help them. It’s time to oust those “godfathers” who use their influence to live like kings while people surrounding them have been living under oppression and in misery.
