Trump gives his thoughts on the current state of the Middle East and the conflict is Syria.
“I got all this stuff twirling around in my head,” says Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain after repeatedly pausing and looking to the sky for answers when asked if he agrees with President Obama’s stance on Libya. Maybe he was expecting another question regarding inappropriate sexual advances instead.
According to reports below, does this not make him the richest man in the world?

Obama administration officials were stunned last spring when they found $US37 billion in Libyan regime accounts and investments in the United States, and they quickly froze the assets before Gaddafi or his aides could move them.
Governments in France, Italy, England and Germany seized control of another $US30 billion or so. Investigators estimated that Gaddafi had stashed perhaps another $US30 billion elsewhere in the world, for a total of about $US100 billion.

An official said the ousted Libya dictator had been shot in the legs during his capture, but he had also been hit in the head during the firefight.
The picture of his dead body was released by agency AFP in an image credited to Philippe Desmazes.
Gaddafi is said to have died shortly after rebel fighters finally overran his loyalists defending the coastal town of Sirte – finally ending the last remnants of his 42 year hold on Libya.
Libyan National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta said Gaddafi was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn today as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked.
“He was also hit in his head.” the official said. “There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.”
They are the hunt for this guy to obviously kill him. Here is some newly released home movies of him and his family which probably were found during the recent raid of his compound. He vows to die in Libya so except a bloody end.

A spokesman for Tripoli’s new military council said it was only a matter of time until he was captured or killed.
Anis Sharif told reporters: “He can’t get out. We are just playing games with him.”
First off, if you have a weak stomach do not look at these photos. If you don’t know who the ‘Kill Team’ is, they were from the Bravo Company from the US Army and are accused of murdering and framing Afghan citizens for sport. This is a gruesome story but needs to be told to the American public who has no realities of the now 3 wars we are engaged in Africa.
Among the men of Bravo Company, the notion of killing an Afghan civilian had been the subject of countless conversations, during lunchtime chats and late-night bull sessions. For weeks, they had weighed the ethics of bagging “savages” and debated the probability of getting caught. Some of them agonized over the idea; others were gung-ho from the start. But not long after the New Year, as winter descended on the arid plains of Kandahar Province, they agreed to stop talking and actually pull the trigger.
While we are all caught up in the Chris Brown fiasco, this country now entrenched in a third war in another Muslim country. Here is some footage of Richard Engel almost getting his head shot off as he attempts to make a report. This despite what Obama says, this seems to be another long drawn out war with no end in sight.
Minister Farrakhan blasted Pres. Obama and Secy. Clinton for their arrogance in meddling in another sovereign nation’s affairs and publicly recommending regime change. He then instructed Americans to look beneath the surface to see who stands to benefit from the unrest and warned Pres. Obama to be careful of the words coming from advisors lobbying him to move in with military forces to depose Libya leader, Col. Gadhafi. Read more @ http://goo.gl/3jzgo
As I stated before, seizing $30 billion from Gaddafi is chump change, this dude has been raking it in for years with help from a bunch of countries doing oil business with him especially this country.

Colonel Qaddafi has control over the huge cash deposits, which have been stored at the Libyan Central Bank and other banks around the Libyan capital in recent years, the officials said.
Totally different from what Saif said the other day. The saga continues..
via Press TV
Gaddafi has dispatched his special envoy to hold talks with the interim National Council based in Benghazi, Saudi-owned daily Asharq al-Aswat reported citing sources.
The longest-serving leader in the Arab world; however, has set numerous conditions.
Of course they were a misunderstanding.

In an interview with Sky News, Saif said: “First of all the bombs (were) just to frighten them to go away. Not to kill them.
“I’m talking about the harbour and the oil refinery there. Nobody would allow the militia to control Brega. It’s like allowing someone to control Rotterdam harbour in Holland.
As pro-democracy supporters gain control of cities in eastern Libya, many of Gaddafi’s properties have been ransacked and destroyed.
Al Jazeera’s Jacky Rowland gives us a glimpse into one of his so-called palaces, on the outskirts of al-Baida.
With new uprisings across the middle east now popping up all over the place, we with some inspiration from Reddit decided to showcase Libyan leader Gaddafi’s ‘Amazonian Guard’ which according to Wikipedia:
Gaddafi’s choice of bodyguards has been the subject of much media attention. His 40-member bodyguard contingent, known as the Amazonian Guard, is entirely female. All women who qualify for duty supposedly must be virgins, and are hand-picked by Gaddafi himself. They are trained in the use of firearms and martial arts at a special academy before entering service.
Check out some pics of this ass kickin virgins:
