    We thank you for your effort however the studies you listed are already found and for Libya we need studies that concentrate on future developments of the youths and how we can fix the problems that rise out due to the Americans, Europe and other countries destruction in Libya. Libya needs rebuild and to stop corruption and to give the Libyans their rights of the their wealth stolen by European, American and other countries banks and organizations. Stop playing games and come to justest points and say the truth … we need compensation for all what you have done in Libya otherwise you must face all the problems for long run. We need studies for what happened to our society and our children during 8 years of destruction and illegal intervention . We need Libya as peaceful and healthy country….
