Gaddafi may be gone, but will there be peace and prosperity for the people of Libya, or will it be like Iraqi and the multinationals plunder the country whilst the people live in poverty and fear?
Remember the cost of war when the neo-conservatives rejoice and glorify their military might as a three-year-old Mohammed Halifa lies in Misrata's Mujamma Aledat hospital both his arms and hands bandaged, and a dressing on a wound caused by a shell splinter in the abdomen. So hold off on the celebrations and self-congratulations for our glorious leaders it’s the people who pay the price of war and lets ask will Libya's people be any freer under the new regime than under General Gaddafi. Will the new government provide free access to health care and education or will these be the preserve of a new elite whilst the profits from oil go to the global multinationals?
