Preliminary results of the Libyan elections show that an overwhelming victory is pending for the National Forces Alliance (NFA) headed by the liberal US educated academic, Mahmud Jibril. Looks like Libya is breaking the trend of Islamists winning in North Africa unfortunately. I mean, I expected Jibril's party might win, but i thought the Justice and Construction Party would be close. In most cities, the NFA has more than triple the votes of the Islamist party. Absolutely unbelievable stuff.

I don't know if you understood me properly, but personally this was not the outcome i was hoping for. :p

That being said, i'm more happy that we had a fair and honest election process, and respect what the people choose.

Freddy maybe you are not understanding Bisco properly
:agree:

what i mean fred is i'm glad people opened there eyes and seen past all the disgraceful use of religious slogans and promises in aims to clinch power and never let go. if egypt is anything to go with, the islamists are soooooooooo greedy its not even funny and the cool part is they r on the verge of loosing everything including the support of the very people who brought them to power. sth they seem to have forgotten is the only reason they won the presidential elections is the simple fact egyptains chose there candidate instead of ex mubarack prime minister only not bec they believe in there BS programs, or backward ideology which on paper seems like they preach cores of islam but in truth they them selves dont obey to begin with.

Sorry if you've already answered this question Fred... but is this true?

1. There is no electricity bill in Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens.
2. There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at zero percent interest by law.

to answer your question with another Q - If even 1/4 of the above was true, do you honestly think there would have been a single soul in Libya to want Ghaddafi out let alone killed like a dog?

My answer is this: :lol:

9, 14 and 15(our universities are shit, and mostly teach Gedaffi propaganda, so i would still question the value of those university degrees) are true though. 5 is true as well, but no thanks to Gedaffi, before the discovery of oil we were one of the poorest countries in the world.

the rest is just laughable really, and to echo AC Milan's statement, if these things were true, no way would Libyans have rised against him, and no way would he have been killed the way he was.
