IT is amazing that the coalition forces can bombard Libya when it is an internal matter.
Had we had the same problem in Australia the government would have done t he s ame to the rebels.
I am no Gaddafi lover and he deserves what he gets but how come nothing is done about that other dictator Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.
I was born and bred in Rhodesia and left in 1980 just prior to it becoming Zimbabwe.
All the infrastructure was in 100% condition.
Lovely roads, towns and factories all working.
Went back after becoming an Australian citizen, in 2008 to see my best friend who had his farm taken away from him.
He is too old to move to another country.
Should have come with the boat people.
What I observed, after 28 years was utter devastation.
Roads were no better than the Bruce Highway, towns empty, shops empty, factories rusting and railway not working. Many roadblocks.
Once I was at my destination and as I speak the local language, I managed to obtain the trust of many locals who stated that they want to get rid of Mugabe but were afraid.
Now Mr Kevin Ruddery how come you say nothing about this rat.
In the early 1980s he slaughtered over 20,000 of his opposition but all governments were quiet.
Sure sort out Libya but do something about the one-time bread basket of Africa or are you too scared as there is no oil in that land. Disgusted. ROLAND DE CHAZAL,
CALL me alarmist if you like, but I was wondering if anybody else is concerned about the current invasion of Libya by the US. ( Sorry the UN).
This is now the second oil rich country, and the third Middle Eastern country that the US, ( sorry the UN) has an involvement in.
Even more worrying, is that the UN seem more than ready to charge into any Middle East conflict, while non-oil rich conflicts are left to run along at their own pace until enough of a fuss is made to warrant US attention. ( Sorry UN).
It also seems quite strange that over the last few months we have had a number of uprisings in the Middle East, to overthrow dictatorship rulings, all of which have received the blessings of Barack Obama, when the US had previously supported the dictator regimes. Don’t get me wrong. Sometimes we must use force to protect the lives of innocent people against oppressive dictators and corrupt governments but while we allow African countries to practice genocide and tear each other apart, and allow oppressive rulings throughout Asia, I must wonder if there is a hidden agenda in the US’s ( UN’s) current activities throughout the Middle East. KEVIN GARTH,
Questions are being raised over the reasons behind America’s invasion of Libya
