I do not know why there are so many Chinese support Gaddafi?

Gaddafi's rule is out. I think now many people, in Libya and other part of the world, celebrate the good news. But here in China, we still can see the news and comments about sorry for Gaddafi losing his political power. Looking back , our Chinese government have support Nicolae Ceauescu, Slobodan Miloševic,Stalin,saddam hussein those who kill a large number of people. And many people here still think they are heroes. Though we can not get enough information in China, even from Chinese official news we can know they kill people for reasons or just their dislike. I think if I am in Libya, I will be very happy. Time may be hard in the next few years, but we can have a better life with free spirit.

It's true that many Chinese people support Gaddafi, but there are also many people support Libyan people who oppose Gaddafi. In my view, the reason why many Chinese people regard those dictators as heros is that they are affected by Chinese official medias. As a person live in China, I'm sure you may know the reason why our government supports those regimes who suppress their people. But trust me, the government could not represent every Chinese people. Freedom and fairness are every civilized people pursues.

The Chinese official medias always give out some stupid news to force people agree that they are best and what they do is for people. But if you think over and over about what they say, and take a look around, you will not believe them. I think freedom and fairness are every civilized people pursues. And no one can present us to have it.

You know, it's harder and harder to make up lies in a more and more open society. Just as you said, when people find that the society they live is not as good as what the government propagandizes, the credibility of government becomes weaker and weaker. I believe that many officials have already realize that it's a very serious problem, but they have no confidence to change the system.

When you began to tell a lie, you should keep telling lies to make the first lie seems truely, then terrible circles began. After telling too many lies, at least one lie will be realized by people who heard it, and the trust will be gone. Without trust, many things can not be done. Now present Chinese government forbidden Chinese use facebook and twitter which may help people know the truth, while here people always do the things in the opposite way of the government.

I think i can understand why China communist regime like and support this brutal dictator in Libya, he is behaving quite like the communist regime that use to kill and torture whoever criticise them, the use of terror to oppress his own people mimic the method use by the communist officials, that is why he is well like among party officials and can get many Chinese supporters. Not even mention he is having all these oil deal with the communists owned business entity inside China, killing people indiscriminately and without mercy is not somethings should be condemned in the strongest term as far as communist is concerned. Both the communist and dictator do share some similarity betweem them like the case of human rights violation, brutality, corruption, absolute political power and so on.and so forth... it is not surprising after all.

China communist regime are lie tellers, they even create history. Now we can not sure who we can believe, for the government use killing, cheating and abusing to rule the society. We can not get safety from such a government. Maybe we should change it, but we do not have such a courage.

There was a time when the US also supported Muammar. In the Cold War, the US supported anyone who could hold back possible Communist take-overs. Today, China has the same vested interest in countries that stand up to NATO and the growing influence of Democracy. Democracy is as much a cancer to China's government as Communism was believed to be to the US. Perhaps someday the world will competely denounce corrupt and deadly leaders but international politics is not yet to that point.

Communist is a person who says good things while do evil things. So there are only five communist state now. And none of them is a rich and hopeful country. The communist state use the Nazi way to rule a country, while force people in there believe they have a happy life. How can a people feel happy without any freedom, sometimes people can not choose live or die.

I am a Chinese, I don't understand why our government will support Gaddafi. You know we can't understand the political officers. However, most Chinese people don't like Gaddafi and we all hope he will be caught as it stands for the democracy will have the victory. We hate that we can't select our leaders and there are many bad officers are ruining our country. I love China

To support a person who kill his own brothers is unbelievable. But our government officials do the unbelievable things. Though Libya become richer during the Gaddafi's rule period, as a country rich with natural resources, people can lead a good life without him. I think that is the very reason for China do not have real friends in the world, for we do not have the same value. Maybe to many people in the world, China is an evil country. I am glad to hear that he has gone. Now people in Libya can do what they like. I love China, too. So I hope it can change its way.
