    I was just thinking we should hand out fliers that advertise this to all the people in the OWS movement.... maybe they will willfully deport themselves.

  5. Here are some facts and figures about Libya under the rule of Muamar Gaddafi and then guess why the USA and Obama want to capture the country!

    This article was prepared by Helen Shelestiuk for the Left Russia website. The article has not been endorsed by the editorial board of Left Russia and is published for its polemical interest only. We are publishing it as one of the elements of information on Libya in the wake of the massive desinformation that has followed the Libyan uprising.

    For several weeks now the entire world community, with bated breath, has been watching the developments in Libya. What do we know for certain about Libya? In fact, nothing, at least from the official media. The media persuade us that Gaddafi is a bloodthirsty dictator. But is it rightful to call Gaddafi a dictator and, of all the Arab leaders, "punish" him and his people with a full-scale intervention? Let us look at facts.

    The dismissed Russian Ambassador to Libya, Vladimir Chamov, when answering a half-question and half-statement of the interviewer whether Gaddafi had oppressed his citizens, said: "What oppression are you talking about? Libyans were lavishly granted twenty-year interest-free credits for construction of their houses, a liter of gasoline cost about 10 cents, food did not cost anything at all, and a new South Korean KIA jeep could be bought for a mere $ 7,500. That country is no more..." (1)
