Where is the world is Moamamar? Who are these rebels?

In 1999, Qaddafi escaped judgment by turning over two underlings to pay for his criminal murder of 270 innocent people eleven years earlier in 1988.

In 1988 Qaddafi murdered all 243 passengers and 16 crew members on Pan Am Flight 103, which he had bombed. In addition he killed Eleven people in Lockerbie, Scotland, who died as large sections of the plane fell on the town and destroyed several houses.

It would have been nice if NATO had taken Qaddafi out back in 1988, or even in 1999.

They can be fat, skinny, tall, short, young, old, male, female, clerk or senior manager, busybodies come in all shapes, sizes, industries and job titles. That's part of their skill.
