Embattled Libyan dictator Mommar Gaddafi still has a few friends left. Despite losing the support of most of his country’s people and the world at large, Minister Louis Farrakhan says he still considers the dictator a friend.

In an address during the Nation of Islam’s Savior’s Day celebration, the 77-year-old leader said he isn’t ready to give up on Gaddafi just yet. The two have been friends ever since Farrakhan visited Lybia in 1980, and Minister Farrakhan said that the world, and particularly the U.S., needs to stay out of Libya’s business.

He told the audience on Sunday, “I’m warning you this is a Libyan problem, let the Libyans solve their problem.”

Many have found it increasingly difficult to remain silent and “let the Libyans solve their problems” on their own, as Minister Farrakhan suggests. Reports continue to pour out of the country that Gaddafi and his armed forces are killing and torturing protestors, and some have even said that he should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity. But Minister Farrakhan argued that if the Libyan leader is prosecuted for war crimes, George W. Bush should also be charged for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

During his speech, Minister Farrakhan also had a few words of advice for President Obama:

What you see happening there, you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door, America.”

Farrakhan added, “I hope that President Obama will remember his instructions to all nations — be careful how you attack and kill innocent people who are protesting. Take your own words into your bosom and be reminded when it comes to your home.”

What do you think? Is it right for Minister Farrakhan to continue to stand with Gaddafi or should he encourage his friend to step down?

    You can not always believe what you hear in mainstream media. The media has a way of creating propaganda to persuade public opinion in a certain direction. Let’s not forget this is the same country where members of the MOVE organization were bombed and killed (in Philadelphia) by the police department because they did not agree with the organization’s views. There are many dissatisfied people and protests in this country, would another country be able to come here and demand that the President step down? I think not.
