Yours truly is not in love with Tony Blair or Muammar Gaddafi but at least Libya was a secular and viable nation under Gaddafi just as Iraq was when Saddam was the strong man in control before the US decided to do really stupid shit regarding both nations, first under "W" with his incredibly stupid attack on Iraq, based on a lie (WMDs) and Obama's equally stupid attack on Libya for the oil and gold. With this in mind, consider what is happening in Europe vis a vis a rather interesting set of conversations between the two, who had a comfortable working relationship beginning around 2001.
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."
When looking at the needless destruction of Libya on the part of the US, the reaction of former Secretary of State Clinton regarding Gaddafi is most interesting to say the least.
And we haven't even discussed Syria.
