    I was watching a silly video of about an inane part of Quadaffi's rule. And I was struck by just how stoney broke the place is. Not just the civil war damage. The place provided 12% of the worlds oil, oil of the best quality that got premium prices. And the country was impoverished. The man took all that money that could have gone to all kinds of really cool ways to make the people of Libya comfortable and blew every penny on some kind of insanity or another.

    One would think that some of that money would have benefited the people, but it looks like the place is worse off than if they were importing the oil, rather than exporting it all.

    Stoney broke? Interesting turn of phrase, Baruch....

    1. Jeff Fort, co-founder of the Black P. Stone Nation, is a Muslim convert and the person most responsible for introducing Islam into the Chicago Street Gang mentality.

    Upon release from the Joliet, Illinois State Prison, for doing a bit over misappropriating one million dollars in government funds targeted to teach job skills to gang members, Fort moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to avoid police surveillance, and established the El Rukn Tribe of the Moorish Science Temple, an Islamic sect.

    Shortly there after, he returned to Chicago in a coup and took over the Black P. Stone Nation renaming it El Rukn, ( Pillar in Arabic ) to take advantage of restrictions on law enforcement surveillance over religious organizations.

    During the 70′s the gang trafficked in cocaine and heroine. Fort ordered gang members of the El Rukn to meet with Libyan officials in the mid 80′s. The gang agreed to commit terrorist acts on American soil in exchange for $2.5 million dollars ...
    Fort was convicted in 1987 for acts of domestic terrorism and sentenced to 80 years in a federal slammer.

    2. ...Farrakhan has been in cahoots with Gaddafi for over 40 years. The Libyan leader once provided the Nation of Islam a five million dollar interest-free loan and reportedly offered to fund Farrakhan's group to the tune of one billion dollars. Also, Louis Farrakhan was the person who introduced Jeff Fort, founder of the Black P Stones, to Gaddafi. Farrakhan then called Fortes new gang, EL RUKN, his "Devine Warriors.” Later, Colonel Gaddafi offered to pay EL RUKN 2.5million to carry out terrorists plots against the U.S.

    3.Reverend Wright and Obama marched together in Minister Louie Farrakhan’s Million Man March. Farrakhan had introduced Jeremiah Wright to Muammar Gaddafi in 1984,...

    Well if the people of Libya get a benefit out of it in the future, that will be a very good thing.

    You nailed it PC, the only reason Farrakhan and the Nation were upset about us bombing Libya was because Gaddafi used to send Farrakhan a check.
