more facts
More Facts:
  • The conflict started around February
  • More than 1% of Libya’s population has been killed in this civil war our of the 6.5 million people that live there
similarities to the american revolution
Similarities to the American Revolution:
  • Libyans were trying to remove the old leader and replace their policies with democracy
  • Their ruler, Gaddafi, was unfair to the people of Libya, much like the King to the colonists
  • People in Libya, like the colonists, were searching for more rights and freedom
differences from the american revolution
Differences from the American Revolution:
  • Libya formerly had a democracy before Gaddafi took over
  • The Libyan leader, Gaddafi, was a dictator, not a king, like the colonists
  • This revolution was mainly to overthrow one person and their policies rather than breaking free from the entire country, like how the colonists decided to become free from England
  • Libya is already a country, unlike the colonists who were trying to create a country
is libya on the road to success
Is Libya On The Road To Success?
  • I believe yes they are. Because of the recent execution of Gaddafi, it shows even more how dedicated the citizens of Libya are to change and revolution. They still have a long way to go but they are definitely on the right track and I think they will succeed in creating the country they deserve.
