“its successful uprising against veteran dictator Moamer Kadhafi last year” Inaccurate reporting. There is no way on earth the opposition in Libya would have been successful without heavy NATO bombing from the air. Also, Libya is now in ruins and is far worse off than it was under Gadaffi. It was a success for the West however, as we now control the flow of oil from that country.

    Also, during the so called ‘uprising’ and ‘revolution’ in Libya there were hundreds of Qatar ground troops dressed up as Libyan ‘rebels’ throughout the conflict. The Sudanese army were also involved.
    There was also the staged reporting by Al Jazeera of the match on Tripoli by the ‘rebels’. Al Jazeera built a replica of the green compound in Tripoli in their Qatar studios and then claimed it was real.
    Yet the vast vast majority of people believe western media.
