Editor's Note: Although the following Reuters report continues to promote the myth that the common Libyan people rose up against Gaddafi, the truth is that Col. Gaddafi had the support of the majority of the Libyan people, far more than that of Assad in Syria, and a lot more than that of Mubarak in Egypt. Libya was likely the most stable country in all of Africa, and even in all of the world; so this myth that the Libyan people hated him is not based on facts. Col. Gaddafi was overthrown and brutally murdered not by Libyan people, but by terrorist mercenaries sent from beyond their borders, financed and armed by US / NATO. And even then it was 10,000 NATO bombing sorties over Libya, aided by NATO ground troops that overthrew him. The average Libyan longs for the 42 years of stability and prosperity they enjoyed under Col. Gaddafi as do the Iraqis long for the days of stability under Saddam Hussein!_______________________________________________________________________________
