Italian PM Berlusconi believes the West, by threatening prosecution, bungled its opportunity to get his friend Gaddafi to give up power. Backed into a corner, Gadaffi has no other choice but to remain in Libya and retain power by whatever means.

    Not really a fan of either Berlusconi or Gaddafi for that matter, but Berlusconi is right in his assesment.

    Agree. We have to give this scumbag an escape hatch. A pretty big one too as it has to be big enough for all his sons and mercenaries.

    That's right. It's America's fault again. Blame America First is not dead!

    Berlusconi is no angel, but it's hard to argue with him.

     

    I keep asking myself, why such a quick and universal move against Gadaffi (not trying to defend the guy). Since when has the UN, African League, Arab League, France given a damn about a dictator terrorizing his own citizens? Has the world all of a sudden become a better place? Something else going on here, maybe.

    Poor Gaddafi , had no choice and the west made him do it. Once again let us apologize and blame the west (USA) first. Where is president Carter when we need him most, he knows how to blame America.
