Libya is not, I repeat not in the Caribbean. You're thinking of bokha, the locally brewed hooch.

Gaddafi was certainly not killed for humanitarian reasons. He wanted to empower Africa. He had a plan to create a new African Union, based on a new African economic system. He wanted to introduce the Gold Dinar to back African currencies, so they could become free from the dollar. He wanted to protect Africa’s vast natural resources from Western looting. The imperialists eliminated him.

Freedom of contract. We sell them guns that kill them; they sell us drugs that kill us.

This dumpster fire is now 10 years old.  Wow.  

I read through a good chunk of it and nobody argued that America didn't kill him out of their own interests.  Not one person.  We did try to get Tungsten to own up to the fact he was also a horrible psycho and deserved to die, but it is the same thing over and over.  Like sure, we all know Jared really wanted to sell lots of sandwiches too, but his bio would fall short if it only mentioned his pro-sandwich agenda.

Anyway, I just thought I would re-post a thread classic RM quote I found that couldn't have been more on the nose if there was a target painted on it.

Call me what you will, but I think if you are killing your political dissidents, you are doing it wrong. Under any circumstances.

As an aside, if you truly want the United States to fail, you should be pouring as much money into their two-party political system as you can, denouncing the #OWS movement and finding new and creative ways to bring the ideals brought forth by the Tea Party to the forefront. Bonus points if you get any of the complete whackjobs in the Republican party as POTUS. Of course, you'll more than likely be part of the financial-nuclear fallout, but at least you'll find warmth in their smoldering corpse.
