"but we are about to replace him by something so much better aren't we?"

WE?? "WE" are not going to replace him with anything, that will entirely up to the people of Libya to do, that is their affair and has nothing whatsoever to do with us.

IRAQ

"Which has a "parliament" divided on racial,tribal and religious lines, a non existant infrastructure and hudreded of thousands of dead Iraqis,(soon to be Libyans, when the civil war kicks in)."

So the Iraqi Parliament is divided on racial, tribal and religious lines - WOW what a surprise, how amazing, but now you come to mention it, I can think of loads of Parliaments in countries all over the world that are - GUESS WHAT - divided on racial, tribal and religious lines.

Non-existent infrastructure?? You mean fewer Presidential Palaces?
Income per capita before Saddam took over $12,000+ (1978)
Income per capita when Saddam fell $507 (2003)
Income per capita today $3,800

Electricity Generation?
2002 - 27.3 bnkWh
2004 - 32.6 bnkWh
2011 - 46.4 bnKwh

Hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqi's? Somewhere between 110,000 to 150,000 - Most killed by Iraqi insurgents, sectarian militia's, foreign Jihadist, and criminal elements.

Iraq a Parliamentary Democracy - rather unique in that respect in the "Arab World".
