US Republican Party’s presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has once again caused a stir by expressing his beliefs that the world would be a better place if Muammar Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein still ruled over their countries
“I mean, look at Libya. Look at Iraq. Iraq used to be no terrorists. He (Hussein) would kill the terrorists immediately, which is like now it’s the Harvard of terrorism,” Trump said. “If you look at Iraq from years ago, I’m not saying he was a nice guy, he was a horrible guy, but it was a lot better than it is right now. Right now, Iraq is a training ground for terrorists. Right now Libya, nobody even knows Libya, frankly there is no Iraq and there is no Libya. It’s all broken up. They have no control. Nobody knows what’s going on.”
When asked what he thinks about the human rights abuses that transpired under the rule of the controversial leaders, he contended that those abuses were not as bad as the horrors that are happening there right now.
Pretty sensible reasoning for a guy who claimed, according to Kenya’s Politica platform, that “Africans are only good at eating, lovemaking and stealing”.
