"There is no tomorrow" under a NATO sponsored Al Qaeda rebellion.

While a  "pro-democracy" rebel government has been instated, the country has been destroyed.

The country has made strides in public health and, since 1980, child mortality rates have dropped from 70 per thousand live births to 19 in 2009. Life expectancy has risen from 61 to 74 years of age during the same span of years. (FAO, Rome, Libya, Country Profile,) The rebels are casually presented as "liberators". The central role of Al Qaeda affilated terrorists within rebel ranks is not mentioned.
