Tripoli was like, a pretty decent place. They had nice restaurants and 2nd story gyms, and night clubs... a very modernized city.
Qaddafi would drive around the streets of Tripoli in a convertible high-fiving the citizens...
I highly doubt most of the people wanted him dead there. He was planning on backing his currency in Gold. What a thought, huh? He stored up a huge amount of gold.
Why do you think we went into Mali right after that... More gold, of course... Like the movie 3 Kings on a bigger scale.
Seeing how we "officially" did not have boots on the ground, I was actually rooting for Qaddafi. He was just kind of a likeable villain, wasn't he, lol?
My favorite line... "If the world wants to get crazy with me, I'll get crazy with the world."
Gotta admit the guy had chutzpah...
