1. The Western democracies should have expected this.
Jake ,   Canada   (08.25.11)
It's sad to see how western democracies, all of them are run by complete idiots. This should have been expected. Why the west with their liberal governments want to destroy themselves is beyond me. The sadness continues...
2. comment
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (08.25.11)
Ben-Yishai makes one mistake: the West does not have any humanitarian interest in Libya. Whatever Gaddafi's past history and despite his enmity for Israel, he wanted to change Africa and the Arab world for the better. Libya employed hundreds of thousands of sub-Saharan Africans who supported their families. These people will have no choice but to starve, emigrate to Europe or join criminal gangs. Gaddafi was the only Arab leader to distribute the oil profits to the people: free health care and education, cheap housing and low taxes. Apparently, Gaddafi was planning to leave Libya as an advanced country with an educated population that did not suffer from hunger and violence. Thanks to the illegal war started by Obama and Cameron, Libya will now become a hopeless, corrupt and violent cesspool like its neighbors.
3. "may"

There is no may about it - that is one thing you can take to the bank and deposit it.

7. Thank @#$% for Salma, the creature we love to hate!
HaifaGuy   (08.25.11)
"...where is he." sounds like a question. You should write: "...where he is." instead. For free English lessons, apply to the British Council. Oops, forgot - the party's over. No more freebies, Salmush! How does "get a job and a life" sound? Capisc? Must be a totally foreign concept for the likes of you. BTW, how's your Persian?
8. Forthcoming instability
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.25.11)
Gadaffi's really gone and let one rip this time. You can just imagine his ex-security forces trying to hunt him down for the bounty. All the time cracking off major buttgas which just adds fuel to the fire. The whole thing stinks!
9. Nr 1 - 2 - 3 - I agree fully !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (08.26.11)
Nr 4. The Truth, is not left fool propaganda. and, to leave the road of truth, and end up in the other ditch, is not the truth eother. Arn.Sweden.
