    Tripoli - A few holiday pics! ;-)

    Went into the Qadaffi compound earlier today - looks like NATO did its job!

    The Palm Tree (still standing) was Qadaffi's private tree which he used to visit daily.

    I am sure that some of you will recognise the BRDM-2 Armoured Vehicle!

    She has earned al lot of money, thanks to Quaddafi, and she was outside the country when things started. She is taking contracts that pleases her

    i was working in South Africa, when it was still Apartheid.When returning home on vacation i got so much sh*^t from some people. How DARE i to work in that state, where the poor blacks are being persecuted and are second class citizens. I was not even given a chance to reply. So i let it go and just did not go back anymore to these people, before i went to SA, called themselves my friends and we went to school together. IGNORANT BUNCH OF BIGOTS.Of course they did not like it when i went to China, Commies there, and then oh horror of horrors, the Tian An Men massacre. But worst of all, Russia, it was still CCCP when i arrived here. I got messages from my REAL friends,what certain people think of me. Not that i could care two hoots about it...

    I understand that the villa and neighbouring buildings were built for his magicians and entertainers - I tried to find his Ukrainian nurse's room, but it was no longer standing!

    It is a huge site which will take many months to clear of rubble, twisted metal and concrete etc.

    i can't believe you were there for holiday...

    authoritative or democratic, no matter what tags you give to a political system or the government. I think what is central to average people is the improvement of their daily lifes.

    She was there for business and all there it was.

    The buildings that she built included guesthouses, all the loca authority buildings etc. She even invited me there couple of times but I must be unlucky on the place.

    However, I believe every place is worth going, every opinion is worth listening...

    I'm sure Lybians are enjoying civil war, utter poverty, and the possibility of living under Islamist rule!

    Well done NATO! You really showed them what democracy is!

    The civil war is over, if you haven't heard; the country's awash in oil; and since Lybians are 99.999% Islamic, reckon they don't mind living under Islamist rule.

    You know, this is a Russian clip, and I find it very odd that VVP has decided to position Russia on the side of such humanitarians as Bashar al Assad and Gaddafi. Maybe it just demonstrates that VVP has more in common with Tzarist Russia than the Communist Regime which usually sided with revolutionary causes.
