you are regurgetating the shit media puts in everyones brains. Let me ask you something. However Gadaffi was treating his citizens, was it skin off Us's nose?
I highly doubt it? If they are such humanitarians, why dont they solve world hunger.
the amount required to ERADICATE world hunger is $30 billion.. the US miliatary budget is $530 billion per year.
so you do the math and work out whats more important. To spread 'democracy' and 'save' a few million people from a so called tyrant regime..or stop 24000 childeren dying from hunger every day?
its a lot of crock my friend.. there are hidden agendas which the common man can speculate on.
to answer your question about why people go out for a better life, its very simple. As an example lets take Africa. One of the worlds most resourceful continents in the world. They have the highest levels of gold, some of the largest reserves of oil and diamonds and countless reserves of other natural resources and minerals. BUT, no means of extracting it.
so, a big power comes in, gives some money to a greedy corrupt policitian and cuts them a deal. we will extractit for you, also buy it from you, but at a cheap rate. in return you get a stronger economny and guess what! so many people weill have jobs.
politican agrees and all the right equipment and expertise is imported. now, kudos to those nations who exploit this greed for thier own benefit, they are not to blame. the ones to blame are those who agree to such a shit deal. but the fact remains, that these nations come in like mosquitoes, suck u dry and f off. but in the process make a hand ful of people rich.
the rest of the country sees didly squat and start to emigrate.
again, i cannot blame those who take advantage of a weak minded asshole politician, because hey, u gotta look after no 1. but to remain ignorant of this vicious cycle is not excusable.
UK/US etc are not where they are because of 'democracy' they are where they are from greed and cunning planning. there are plenty of countries thriving and not 'democratic'
its just a word now. doesnt mean jack. we are all controlled in one way or another
my take on things, feel free to disagree.
