A reply To Ahmed El-Baqqal

I was really surprised of what you have written that these items in Libya are very cheap than in other countries. I would like to ask you some questions.
Firstly it could be that these items are really cheap in Libya but do the people in Libya have enough money to buy them? I doubt it since the average salary for a family does not exceed $85.
Secondly I am with you that the petrol in Libya is very cheap ( and it should be since Libya is the third Arab country in petrol production ) but the question is that do the Libyan people have cars to load them with your cheap petrol? The answer is not for the simple people but yes for EL-TAWREAN and Gadaffi's tribe members those have luxury cars and even they do not pay for the petrol.
Thirdly do you know how much a Korean made car costs in Libya? brand new car costs 12,000 LD, a second hand car in reasonable condition 7,000 LD, a suicidal car ( the one that can lead you to your grave because it lacks any feature to be named a car ) 2,000 LD.
Please stop trying to convince us that Libya is paradise but I know it was before the devil came to the power. Lastly if you believe in what you have written then people have to call you (...) ( as the Syrian brothers call a mad man ) and not Ahmed .

Abdulla
