#1 In every profession there is a right way and a wrong way of doing it. In the current "unrest", Qadaffy is the only Arab dictator who's acting as a proper dictator should.

#8 Is there a roadmap or legend to what all those battle ribbons, sprockets, and medals signify?

#9 Hey, I found some info:

Ribbon Chart
Stuff like: Order of the Republic
Order of Courage

Tere is also a listing of some rather pretty medals, but I do not find any that he is wearing. Must have had those made up himself. Except the top one on his green sash. That one is from Boston Gear.
Order of Jihad
Order of the Grand Conqueror, to name a few
