    ....you surely don't mean the US (and UK et al) who for years have been bank-rolling numerous unsavoury leaders in the middle east, south america etc. for the sole purpose of gaining access to their respective natural resources. A strategy which unfortunately always leads to the implantation of right leaning dictators often at the expense of democratically elected leaders - particularly left leaning leaders who don't play ball with neo-liberal Western capitalism. Socialist governments, you see, are more likely to nationalise their country's resources for the benefit of the people. And this is no good for oil-greedy Western countries so they finance the 'right' guy who will allow them to come in and take what they want with little or no concern for the indigenous population. The history of the industrialised nations and imperialist fueled colonialism is underpinned by this cowardly, cheating strategy. There is nothing honourable in colonialism or backing the over-throw of people centred leaders. Quite the reverse. The Libyans should be grateful to the US (UK et al) - no they shouldn't.
