Muammar Gaddaffi was a dictator . The industry of a dictator was not only an Arabian manufacture . He suffered paranoia . Muammar felt superior to other Arab kings and presidents . The population of his country was small, this didn't raise to his ambition , because his fortune from oil was formidable ; 126 billion dollars, who can imagine that ? He could have made his country better than Dubai , Hong Kong or Singaporean . Gaddaffi suppressed his people , he imprisoned them inside the borders of his country . Muammar bought all sorts of weapons . The people had to smuggle them to other neighboring countries like Egypt and Sudan , thus causing Egypt much terrorist trouble . The arrogant leader nominated himself king of the kings of Africa, and the mayor of the Arab presidents , because he ruled Libya for 42 years , running on . He made much trouble everywhere ,- like a nagging boy - . He bribed most of the African presidents every month . He helped Sarkozy in his presidential campaign ; was about to cause the french president a scandal .The US had to participate in the military coalition - to hit Gaddaffi,s forces who kills his people - as well as the NATO .
