Libya & HIV




I've been in a mental warp for the past few days, trying to find the words to properly convey my opinion on the release of the Bulgarian nurses. Criminals who partnered with a Palestinian intern who committed the worst of crimes. Crimes that have devastated 400+ Libyan children and their families...





After having infected some 400 Libyan children with the HIV Aids virus around 10 years ago, and claimed to be innocent, the Bulgarian nurses are now free. As soon as they touched down on Bulgarian soil, a presidential pardon hits them and they are greeted as heroes!





While around 60 of the children they infected have now died, and the rest have had their lives devastated for good, these so-called nurses are now free citizens living the life, and will probably continue to live their lives as well as they want!





Its sad, Libya negotiates with the European Union and the nurses are freed. The whole world cried out when the death sentence was handed down to these criminals who have been convicted, and yet no one ever asked about those poor children, those poor Libyan families.



What would be the international reaction to this crime had the children American or British children? How would the world react if the nurses were Arab or Muslims?

I'll leave that question unanswered as its obvious anyway...

...Yet another Sorry Sorry Arab Situation...

Yes. Can you imagine that the EU bribed Gaddafi by telling him he would get recognition and aid from them if he released them? Can you imagine if these children were European? Would these criminals be treated the same way?

Its really disgusting the double standards used. These are children! Does anyone care?
