About Libya – Here’s why Obama had to invade Libya (without consulting Congress): Libya has almost no unemployment, the highest GDP in Africa, less than 5% of the population is classified as poor (fewer people living below the poverty datum line than for example in Holland), life expectancy is 75 years (the highest in Africa and 10% above the world average), most Libyan families possess a house and a car. There is free health care and education and a literacy rate of 82%, and worse yet, last year Gadaffi distributed $500 to each man, woman and child (population 6.5 million)–clearly a monster who must be stopped.
