NATO was scheduled to end its military actions in Lybia on Oct. 31, 2011. Although the eight-month bombing campaign ended, the impact it has had on the country may be far-reaching and profound.

During recent days, the war has attracted the attention of the whole world. However, who is really looking out for the interests of the children there? They should have had classes in the classroom and played on the playgrounds and had fun in the parks. Instead, they played with guns. Their games were interrupted by protests, and their country made into a battlefield.
