Lockerbie,The disgrace continues.

Every move Gadaffi is making now is just adding more insult to injury, to the victims of the Lockerbie bombing. A hero's welcome for Megrahi, and now all this farce in America. Its only just over twenty years ago in 1986 that the American air force bombed the place where Gaddaffi was staying with the intention of killing him, but when the task failed he appeared to change his ways, until the Lockerbie bombing occurred, now he is to address the United Nations IN America.
This and the release of Megrahi to a hero's welcome is a kick in the teeth for everyone of the victims of the bombing, but then again its usually someone close to you that does the kicking, or it comes from the least unexpected source, so what else should we expect in the kind of world we live in now?
The problem is, we elect these people to carry out our wishes, and once they are in, our wishes are ignored.
It might come as a surprise to some folk,but the majority of the world are shocked and disappointed at these events,even though our politicians are not, whether they like to admit it or not. They can ignore the public outcry, and horror, but what they should remember is, THE PEOPLE HAVE THE FINAL SAY,so they should not be surprised when their anger is shown at the elections.
Obama had to go through the affront of Gadaffi speaking after him, and although these talks are supposed to include world peace, it must have been difficult for him knowing the feelings of his nation.

Gadaffi was welcomed by the other world leaders, isn't it amazing how easily you are welcomed back into the fold when your country has an abundance of oil, as other sources begin to dwindle.
Wealth can corrupt, but you expect loyalty from your elected leaders, oil or no oil, and the feelings of the America people on Gadaffi should have been taken into consideration by our leaders, also if Gadaffi was the good guy he is now trying to portray, he should have had the decency to give this one a miss, then we MIGHT begin to believe he is ready to comform.

The picture shown seems to be appropriate as it might bring back the memories of the atrocity brought about by the Lybian leaders crime.

  1. Donald,
    Thank you for this posting, I have followed this story and I agree with you "isn't it amazing how easily you are welcomed back into the fold when your country has an abundance of oil". Great job my friend.


  2. Yes, I agree with you that wealth can corrupt but the biggest cause of corruption is power.

    Can't remember who said it, but the phrase 'Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely' seems to ring a bell somewhere.
