For years Qaddafi has intentionally sponsored the colonization of the west; by placing millions of Libyan citizens on dangerous sea transports to many countries who cannot possibly feed or house them...

Note: CIC had better not think of blaming our brave Men & Women who only respond to his orders... But this is what the Left does, when the slightest wind shifts.. (2012... out!)
