gadhafi had still not withdrawn his troops from northern chad he did not fulfill the agreements that he made with force one meter. tensions were rising between france and libya border such as it was there which i. don't. like girls or below. near the city of what he doom the libyans built a two mile long runway to channel weapons and initiate a fresh attack on the country alone met gadhafi once again to try to persuade him to see reason. get there feel. that this is. you will laugh and then. and it is.

clamp down on the libyan advance to threaten stability in the region. libyan army was very well outfitted because libya had a lot of oil wealth and the soviet union that happily provide them with a lot of equipment. so at the same harbor was going to go after that you know he had a good case to make we provided ten stinger missiles under very strict controls . and they were he wanted. a new reality. this modern equipment allowed. to launch an assault on the pros libyan forces a battle known as the toyota war took place in the vast desert of chad. on that he had to get that money. and for a. set of your own but i have
a. new level of it. is a big deal for the men. the toyota war ended with the taking of what the doom gadhafi stronghold in china. is and how bray in the end destroyed the libyan army. and killed thousands of libyan troops that would not have happened if there had not been effective french or american cooperation. is very happy he came you had lunch with president reagan and we had a long talk president convinced. that the relationship between our countries
continue to be strong and productive it was an honor and a great pleasure to have had him here as our guest. share. this. this in harbor a is the fourth dictator charged with crimes against humanity who was supported by the reagan administration you have a gusto pinochet in chile you have his and higher branches you have to evaluate in haiti you know every zero smog in guatemala after seven years in power he became obsessed with those he considered internal enemies in chad in one nine hundred
eighty nine he said i place from a chief of state interest they'd be led a rebellion against him and his paranoia knew no limits. chaldeans from the same ethnic background as a three state be there's a guy became targets with him and jim ina they were held in a prison called the p. seen swimming pool it became a symbol of oppression as the country was plunged into fear. or left the p.c. prosecutor very much and i think the scene sank as i miss it is officially for sale on the records that you. left the scene i thought it was for me when i close to a shop with this he. said come into the wood to someday i'll buy you. the cd with were with. the.
little good from it the thread is that a ship from a through the. cut met the sound yes i've accepted you and that. need don't buy you for some wonder that you didn't. know what. we are live book and i did the lips at the media sort of enough. as i say one. hour. when. you're caught up with. the man on guard duty of course i think on a terrorist event like this on. the palestinian fit only to show one to them or if you let him.
think your mom would have done. it on him walk. him or. he's on that isn't. exactly what i'm. going to have come up with on the. left with leprosy than c m y is a science and i'm abilities on this and. during the same period to terror attacks find their targets the pan am flight explodes mid flight over lockerbie in scotland the second a french u.t.a. plane explodes in the middle of the sahara desert both attacks both the hallmarks of colonel gadhafi the united states decided that the libyan leader needed to be eliminated. opened his country to u.s. forces allowing them to pursue their objectives just a few kilometers from and jim ina the cia had secret camps where they trained

purpose was to infiltrate libya with libyan people who could attack libyan facilities she says her city this istra began about a.f.e. the prison year and i guess. said it was. only the me. because you might do the use of america he fit in a fox e.p.a. army throughout highly food or hotly i got a few is american an example but come over. our sippers gonna do montgomery man. fronts did not appreciate united states inviting themselves into their african domain the head of the french foreign intelligence went to chad to meet is santa buying shoes and i bought him a twelve in the rear of the other to. let them

near panama but probably more especially once more costa rica. that's not what we're talking about the very last about shooting people are not enough pressure to burn themselves and their other countries have managed to solve this problem but you worry that this conflict could erupt into a cult right open war that the city journal securities were all the people who paid the price clearly their writeup unprejudiced setting the stage for a serious debate up front at this time on al-jazeera. this is al-jazeera.
