We have also gotten the same flack for opinions and support during certain events. I commend you for the decision you made to go do what is right when so many just stood by watching. Too many people just lump the countries together not knowing the cultural differences that make each country unique. One of those key differences is the tribal culture of Libya with some tribes even having their own dialect of Arabic. Have a goodin." - Avram laub via LinkedIn 7/21/12

"This is a refreshing take on Libya with Matt VanDyke’s very personal relationship with this country No sophisticated hotels for him but a personal contact with those Libyans he fought alongside. His judgement of the situation today is based on his experience in 2011as a POW in Gadhafi’s prisons as well as a Freedom Fighter. He seems reasonably optimistic. I hope his NGO After the Revolution soon takes form and begins treating Libyan war veterans." - Diane Lockyer via The Freedom Fighter Blog 7/11/12

"Matt, good stuff!" - Jim Prouty via LinkedIn 7/11/12

"Thank you for a very candid and truthful photo of Libya today. I agree with all that you have written about in your analysis. Except for the Federalism part. Federalism, as it is known in the U.S. in not understood here in Libya. It is seen as a partition of the nation. ( Which is want the dead tyrant dictator wanted. To ” divide, conquer and destroy” this nation of of few people and vast wealth.) Tribalism in Libya will not allow the Federalism concept to simply be a dividsion of governing or distrubtion of wealth and self goverence. Rather is will be used to divide the nation along tribal lines. But anyway, your tour of Libya and analysis of it, is very well documented. Your personal experience in the past year has helped you greatly understand this nation and its people. By mingling with the locals on the streets and living in their homes as a guest, you got the jest of the situ here. Best of luck to you and your family. As always, your welcome to your second home, Libya, any time." - Zak Gariani via The Freedom Fighter Blog 7/11/12

"A very well written and I believe very actuate report on the current situation within Libya. As the comment above says, it is refreshing to read a report by someone who has actually spoken to the Libyan people on the ground. I think that the Matthew’s assessment is greatly helped by his access to an excellent network of friends and contacts in Libya." - John Hogan via The Freedom Fighter Blog 7/11/12

"Matthew VanDyke, who although not a military member, has fought the good fight for the freedom of people in the world, and in turn shown many that Americans are not all self centered egotistical consumptionists (Made up word, but should be a real word).

The State Department should hire you as an Advisor. For the records, Tuareg are fighting today for the same inalienable rights American fought for some 200+ years ago.

"Matthew, Glad you are safe and well after being in Libya during the civil war. I was working in Nigeria when the military ruler was assassinated in 1976 and the results were chaotic.  I would offer that Russian and Chinese weapons, especially AK's, are so widespread worldwide that it's hard to tell which transaction resulted in which faction possessing which weapons. But you are absolutely correct in that the Russians and Chinese will sell weapons to almost anyone. They, ironically, are even more greedy than the capitalists they have criticized for so many years." - Hugh via LinkedIn 5/8/12

"I just followed you on Twitter and liked your Facebook page as well, Matthew.

"Excellent analysis of ongoing conflicts in Mali and Sudan which may spill over into neighbouring countries like Niger and Chad Ethnicity and race as well as economic interests notably the Chinese in Sudan can only exacerbate the situation. By putting the conflicts into a historical perspective – colonial-era borders imposed by France and Britain and the unpleasant memories of slavery – as well as your addition of well-detailed maps you have convinced us of how fragile the whole situation is in this part of Africa. As for your suggestion of international diplomatic intervention whether it works remains to be seen. Thank you for a very interesting article." - Diane via The Freedom Fighter Blog 4/26/12

"Keep sorting the truth from the BS mate. good work." - @frederickmelick via Twitter 4/24/12

"Thanks Matt, I read your article. Its a very good analysis of the situation. I have read and heard about you" - @MGD866 via Twitter 4/21/12

"Dear Matthew, I am sure you get a lot of letters thanking you for standing with the Libyan people. I heard of your story, i heard of your courage, but mostly i heard how you stayed in Libya after you were release from abu saleem prison.  Words can not express the pride and joy i have in the Libyan people, but mostly in You, for having the courage to go to Libya to document what was going on, for the courage to endure abu salim prison, but mostly for keeping an open mind about the revolution. You are a part of the Libyan history and i hope you will be part of the history books as well. I encourage you to write a book, even as small as 20 pages to share with the world what you expreienced, i for one would love to buy it. again, welcome home, i pray that you are well and you are enjoying being around your family and friends. Best of luck to you and yours." - Wafia via Facebook message 4/20/12

"All your efforts will inspire Libyan citizens to struggle for peace in their homeland from one generation to the next as Libyan hero Omar Mukhtar said during his capture." - Thanasate via The Freedom Fighter Blog 4/15/12

"Dear Mathew, I’m Ahmed from Misurata, I live and I work in Paris where I finished my study at Sciences-Po. I’ve been told about your participation to support my citizens against Gaddafi and I truly want to thank you for everything. You are a real hero and human who decided deliberately to fight with the right of people to get freedom and live with dignity. I salute you." - Ahmed via Facebook 4/13/12

"Interesting, informative, well-written. You make a good argument for a viable policy. I wonder if anybody is listening to your thoughtful approach. You should send this to Scott Gration, retired AF Major General and Africa hand, who can get this into the NSC for consideration. Good luck." - Richard via The Freedom Fighter Blog 4/10/12

"Hero of Heroes THANK YOU" - @hamzamu via Twitter 4/6/12

"Islamist parties - good for democracy? @Matt_VanDyke sets out a compelling argument as to why this might the case" - @JonnyGoggs via Twitter 4/5/12

"Mathew, thanks for injecting a dose of reality to what people usually understand simplistically. I appreciate your courage and interest in understanding the issues, and for voicing your thoughts on such a sensitive and "politically incorrect" subject." - Zubair via LinkedIn 4/4/12

"Matthew, having spent alot of time in the Arab world as well, I must say I can not deny your logical explanation, Alot of Islamist have realized that the political route is very effective and can be very beneiftial to their cause, and can gain a substantial backing if done correctly. Most people would disagree with you, because they are thinking of this in the terms of U.S. Politics, and if our political system faced this, how it would turn out. Which in all reasoning, isn't far fetched if you look at how some smaller communities are having an increase of Muslim canidates in local politics. More than one way to Win a Jihad. good article, thanks for sharing." - James via LinkedIn 4/3/12

"Mr VanDyke makes some very interesting points worth considering. Many will reject his opinions because they only see Islamist through the prism of western media. Egypt is another very good example of what he is describing as they head into the second phase of their revolution. The other positive (western) aspect to the evolution he describes is that it will allow more issues to be dealt with at the state to state level. A very good article, well done indeed." - Sam via The Huffington Post 4/3/12

"Dear Matthew ... I know its far too late for talking now that Libya has been liberated , thanks to Allah who provided us with His Almighty support thru our brave fighters, aid of the international community, NATO, and brave men who simply believed in our cause and joined our fighters a the front ... it may be a bit late , indeed, but its never late to express appreciation , admiration and acknowledge someones efforts and good will ....on behalf of many many people inside and outside Tripoli, and on behalf of lets say specifically people of Souk Eljuma , please accept our respects and greeting for your bravery .. I am sorry that I'm running out of words.. Everyone has to meet his destiny and cause of life in this lifetime ... and your destiny was to be a freedom fighter, either with your words, filming or weapon ... We understand how it was being in prison also , even if your were treated "nicely" , waiting for the unknown is itself a tragedy and horror .. most of us had relative sin GHaddafis prisons, my brother was also there and fled with the others when Abu sleem was liberated ..." - Zainab via Facebook 4/2/12

"That was a fascinating article. Thank you. I'd been looking for something a little more in depth on the Tuaregs." - @ASteinfield via Twitter 4/1/12

"Very observant and well argued, Matthew. The Tuareg situation is not at all different from those on many parts of remote inland Australia, so interested to learn of progress and methods being deployed." - Gil via LinkedIn 3/30/12

"Given the onslaught of the "Arab Spring" and its Islamic bent, helping the Tuareg achieve some level of self-government would assist the US both short and long term. You are correct that the US has never really understood Africa, possibly because the US never had expansion/colonial interests there, other than commercial ones. Given the current state of unrest in Africa, ensuring some level of stability benefits everybody, although the Malian government might not agree with that assessment. Excellent assessment of an area that has only recently come to light in the world press." - Reilly via LinkedIn 3/30/12

"This is a very informative piece. I have seen no comparable analysis of the situation in Mali in the media. I hope it gets published in some way." - Ronald via LinkedIn 3/30/12

"Amazing article, lots of insight into the conflict I have not seen anywhere else." - Matt via The Freedom Fighter Blog 3/29/12

"I sincerely thought it was the best article I've read on the situation." - Nancy via email 3/30/12

"Dear Mathew, your story inspires all. As a freedom advocatee and exiled refugee for Ogaden Cause, I really understand what you offered for the Libyan people under the Gaddafi brutality." - Ahmed via The Freedom Fighter Blog 3/26/12

"It is sad most others don’t understand about true friendship, Loyalty, Commitment , Trust, Compassion and all that should be. You are one of very few examples of all those attributes. I shall look forward to reading your book. Thank You For showing all the above, You are a true friend and Hero." - Pat via email 3/26/12

"By the way, impressive profile you have. Very educated and experienced, and you've been out in the field defending your country, including the majority of Muslims in those countries, who simply want the necessities of life as we do. I hope people who have an anti-Islamic agenda understand that 99.9% of Muslims are not out to terrorize the world.Thanks for the open minded and experienced view that I hope some people here can emulate and learn from. Absolutely true: past (and current) support of dictators must stop if we wish to remain true to the principles of our Founding Fathers." - Zubair via LinkedIn 3/23/12

"I'm sure you get this a lot but thank you, your a true American and Libyan hero! I was there when you were but sadly never got the chance to meet you. Inshallah we can share a tea and a smoke in OUR new free country!" - Adam via Facebook 3/22/12

"Matthew, A kind and patriotic friend and associate who works tirelessly to insure we continue to maintain our unrestricted Freedom sent me a copy of your most inspiring story.  I have literally read hundreds of books related to all forms of Dictatorships, Theocracies’ and matters related to Domestic and Foreign State and Non –State supported Terrorists and have authored a book on my findings in an effort to provide some small contribution to others, Although I have never heard of or read a story as extraordinary, giving, compassionate and Compelling as yours. I’m feel constrained to ask you to please consider placing your story into a book format for others to understand what makes a true Person/Hero of profound compassion and commitment to “aid their friends” as a friend should and doing the right thing. Your Story should be an inspiration to others like myself to know that Hero’s and true friends like yourself still do exist. Thank you for sharing your story and Via Con Dios Sir." - Patrick via The Freedom Fighter Blog 3/22/12
