We'd be safer if Sadaam, Mobarek & Gaddafi were still in power

Transcripts of two telephone conversations between the two leaders which took place on February 25, 2011, are made public

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi issued a 'prophetic' warning to Tony Blair that jihadists would attack Europe if his regime was allowed to collapse, phone conversations reveal.

Gaddafi's dire prediction was made in two desperate telephone calls with Mr Blair on February 25, 2011 - as civil war was engulfing Libya.

In the first call at 11.15am, Gaddafi said: "They [jihadists] want to control the Mediterranean and then they will attack Europe."

(Excerpt from Col Gaddafi's 2011 phone conversations with Tony Blair)

In the call, lasting half an hour, Gaddafi insisted he was trying to defend Libya from al-Qaeda fighters. The presence of al-Qaedas would later be superceded by the rise of the so-called Islamic State

Why would governments want less terrorism when it gives them an excuse to abridge our civil liberties and distracts us from internal problems, as depicted by Orwell's 1984.

...and Obama. Don't forget his part in this. And congress, for not having the balls to stop it.

As despicable as they were, ousting them caused a vacuum of power - and believe it or not, it was always in their best interests to keep the terrorists under their thumb - so they did. Without their hamfisted rule, things got worse - as I predicted.

If they were still in power they would probably be buddies with Trump. Like I said previously, dictators like dictators. And it wouldn't take much for Trump to treat his own people like those other guys treated theirs.
