Now, don't get me wrong. I am not saying that Muammar Qaddafi is a nice guy. What I am saying though is that NATO isn't really all that nice either. This invasion has nothing to do with how violent a dictator Qaddafi is, or that the Libyan people want our idea of "democracy". This invasion is step 3 in the typical approach taken by western nations in getting what they want.
Step 1) Send in the economic hitmen.
Step 2) Attempt a CIA lead revolution or 'coup'.
Step 3) Bomb them back to the stone age.
Obviously step 1 (which is usually done behind closed doors) and step 2 (which we witnessed) have failed.
