Dubai isn't a good example to compare anything too.
But I hear you.
Well, he had every chance to start becoming a properly decent ruler. That spineless bastard Tony Blair even forgot about the whole "selling weapons to the IRA in the 80s" thing...
The problem was, the guy was just a jerk. A macho dumbass with alot of money and alot of people's lives in his hands, basically doing everything that a 4channer brags that they'd do with a country. That was sort of his charm in itself, admittedly, but yeah. Keep in mind what Dubai has been accomplishing in the past few years, in comparison.
I don't really think our reasons for going in there were totally just, but at least this isn't another Iraq or Afghanistan. At least the country still has control of it's own oil.
I just hope they are going to melt those balls of steel down for something useful. :p

Dubai is a super-westernized bubble economy, so I guess you're right...
But, still, I'll just least this here.
Goodnight, sweet prince.

It's so sick how the kids in my College History class actually believe that killing him was a good thing.
Yes, no ruler is perfect, but he was probably one of the nicest dictators ever. It's disgusting how this happened.
The fear of dictatorship from USA people has always been ironic for my. A part from that, it will be hard to provide stability in Libya now, specially through public votes.
No. They should have brought him in, gave him a trial (no way in Hell he would win), and then sentenced him to death. I'm against the death penalty, but if he was going to be murdered (which he was, one way or the other) then it should have been organized legally.
