Why are you working so hard to tear down the efforts of otherwise peaceful, ordinary citizens to reclaim their country from extremism? I don't get your attacks on Sharon's commentary one bit.
I mean, here we had radicals Islamits storm U.S. diplomatic compounds and murder said diplomats - dignitaries the Libyian people and their government respected - and now that the PEOPLE are fighting back against such extremism instead of you applauding their patriotic efforts you've gone out of your way to bash them. Why?
History of Libya - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaOn 25 April 1963, the federal system of government was abolished and in line with this the name of the country was changed to the Kingdom of Libya to reflect the constitutional changes.
Of course it was developing "rapidly", look where it started:
Following independence Libya faced a number of problems. There were no colleges in the country and just sixteen college graduates. Also the country had just three lawyers with not a single Libyan physician, engineer, surveyor or pharmacist in the kingdom. It was also estimated that only 250,000 Libyans were literate and that 5% of the population was blind, with eye diseases such as trachoma widespread. In light of these Britain provided a number of civil servants to staff the government.
