Libya used to be by far the most prosperous country in Africa. Unfortunately, it also had a visionary leader who thought all of Africa could be prosperous. This did not sit well with the Western elites who have profited so extravagantly from the exploitation of Africa over the past five hundred years, give or take.
Ergo, that dude had to go.
Hundreds of Canadian Forces folks were awarded this medal for their courageous efforts in dropping bombs on a country with zero air defences.
The think tank here at Falling Downs found the entire bogus war on Libya disgusting, in contrast to the non-stop cheer-leading going on in the pages of Canada's newspaper of record at the time. Yup, thanks to our selfless heroism, we "saved" the people of Libya! In the words of PM Harper, " the Libyan people, thanks to us, can begin to imagine a future free of fear and suffering."
Boo Yah! Just look at how that's turned out, not just for Libya but for the entire neighbourhood.
And you know what's really funny? On those Libya medals earned by our brave men and women in uniform is engraved the following;
IN THE SERVICE OF PEACE AND FREEDOM.
