Muammar Gadaffi and his family are plainly thieves and parasites who have wasted the vast resources of their country and enriched themselves in the process. For his 37th birthday, Saif (Sword of Islam) Gadaffi held the most lavish party ever seen in the Adriatic, in Montenegro, attended by several billionaires, a crown prince, a prime minister and a huge assortment of wealthy hangers-on. Six Learjets ferried the guests into Tivat airport and the bay was filled with giant luxury yachts. Meanwhile, despite the fact that Libya has huge reserves of oil, his people had no adequate hospitals, and the schools were primitive, crumbling hovels.
Finally, inspired by the wave of revolution sweeping across North Africa, the Libyan people rose up and, facing machine-guns and rockets, are now on the brink of deposing the brutal dictator Gadaffi.
Fianna Fáil and their cronies are plainly thieves and parasites who have wasted the vast resources of this country and enriched themselves in the process. Every year, they held a lavish party at the Galway races, and guests were ferried in by a fleet of helicopters. Meanwhile, despite the fact that Ireland has huge reserves of gas, its people had no adequate hospitals and its schools were primitive, crumbling hovels.
The population of Libya is not much bigger than the population of Ireland, but Libya has a far bigger security apparatus to crush dissent.
Nevertheless, unlike the Libyans, the Irish people did not rise up when Fianna Fáil sold them into slavery. Instead, they simply grumbled and accepted the theft imposed on them by the Party of Corruption.
Why is this?
