LETTER: A great day for freedom in Libya

I AM very happy for the Libyan freedom fighters. Their victory over the oppresive Gaddafi regime has been a hard-fought, bloody campaign. There will still be many problems for the Libyan people but at least their children will have a future.

A truly great day for democracy.

Congratulations to our Government for playing such an important, supportive role that enabled this truly great victory. This sends out a message to all despot dictators around the world that the people will rise up and tyrants will be hunted down.
