Muammar Gaddafi, was certainly an unusual, so-called ‘dictator.’ In fact Libya under Gaddafi was Africa’s most prosperous democracy. Their government was much more responsive to the people than the United States, Britain or any other western democracy. Given the lies and distortions of the bankster-controlled media, this does not seem possible, but the fundamental difference between our so-called ‘democratic’ systems and Libya’s direct democracy was that in Libya, citizens were given the chance to contribute directly to the political decision-making process.
We have a very tightly Zionist-controlled, indirect form of democracy with no real say in how the government is run. We only get to pretend to elect the puppet-criminals who run the country only for the benefit of the bankster-Elite. By contrast, all Libyans were allowed to voice their views directly, not simply in one parliament or ‘house’ of a few hundred elite politicians, but in hundreds of committees, manned by tens of thousands of ordinary citizens. Far from being a military dictatorship, Libya, before the murder of Gaddafi, was the most prosperous and democratic nation in Africa. And this was the real problem.
- He raised the literacy rate from 20 per cent to 83 per cent.
- He built one of the finest health care systems in the ‘Third World, whereby everyone had access to doctors, hospitals, clinics and medicines, free of charge and should a Libyan need surgery that was unavailable in Libya, funding was provided for the surgery overseas.
- He raised the life expectancy from 44 to 75 years of age.
- Basic food items were subsidised and electricity was made available throughout the country.
- He developed huge irrigation projects in order to support a drive towards agricultural development and food self-sufficiency.
- Recognising that water, not oil, would be the scarcest resource of the future, Gaddafi initiated the construction of the ‘Great Man Made River,’ which took years to complete. Referred to as a ‘wonder of the modern world,’ this river pumps millions of gallons of water daily from the heart of the Sahara desert to the coastal region, where the land is suitable for agriculture.
- Any Libyan who wanted to become a farmer was given free use of land, a house, farm equipment, livestock and seed.
- Gaddafi vowed that his own parents, who lived in a tent in the desert, would not be housed until every Libyan was housed.
- Under Gaddafi, Libya had attained the highest standard of living in Africa.
- Gaddafi put up a communications satellite, the first by an African nation, to bring the continent of Africa into line with 21st century technology. This also bypassed the massive fees that European companies had been charging Libya.
- He gave women full access to education and employment.
- Gaddafi nationalised his nation’s oil reserves and used the revenue to build schools, universities, hospitals, and infrastructure.
- Money from Libya’s oil revenue was regularly deposited into the bank account of every citizen.
In 2010 Gaddafi offered to invest $97bn in Africa to free it from Western influence, on condition that African states rid themselves of corruption and nepotism. Gaddafi always dreamed of a well-developed, united Africa and was about to make that dream come true – and nothing was more terrifying to the banksters than a developed, united Africa.
He was also planning a return to a ‘gold standard’ and to introduce the Gold Dinar, a single African currency that would serve as an alternative to the US dollar and allow African nations to share the wealth. But most of all it was Gaddafi’s ‘golden oil’ plan, which would have wrecked the banksters’ monopoly over the global economy that signed and sealed his death warrant. The proposed gold dinar instituted by Libya would have had serious consequences for the corrupt world financial system, but would also have empowered the people of Africa, which the banksters wanted to avoid at all costs.
Gaddafi’s gold dinar plan and his intention to cease selling Libyan oil in US dollars, demanding payment instead in gold-backed dinars, would have destroyed the US Dollar according to many observers. The regime, sitting on massive amounts of gold, estimated at close to 150 tons, was also pushing other African and Middle Eastern governments to follow suit.
Saddam attempted something similar in 2000 with the result that Iraq was invaded and he was eliminated. Iran began selling oil in Euros rather than US Dollars and the country was immediately placed on the ‘hit list’ and totally vilified. And as soon as Gaddafi began plans for the gold dinar, gold for oil, he was ambushed and assassinated on the street.
So who else would like to play assassination-roulette with the all-powerful wizards of the banking cartels, with US foreign policy and dollar supremacy? No one else has the military might, nor the courage to play such a dangerous game… except for perhaps Russia and China, but they are both quite complicit in the current status quo anyway.
The French President at the time, Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly went so far as to call Libya a, “threat to the financial security of the world.” The Elite were apparently panicking over Gaddafi’s plans.
“Any move such as that would certainly not be welcomed by the power-elite, who are responsible for controlling the world’s central banks. So yes, that would certainly be something that would cause his immediate dismissal and the need for other reasons to be brought forward for removing him from power…The central banking Ponzi scheme requires an ever-increasing base of demand and the immediate silencing of those who would threaten its existence. Perhaps that is what the hurry [was] in removing Gaddafi in particular and those who might have been sympathetic to his monetary idea. Investor newsletters and commentaries have been buzzing for months with speculation about the link between Gaddafi’s gold dinar and the NATO-backed overthrow of the Libyan regime. Conservative analysts pounced on the potential relationship, too.” Financial analyst, Anthony Wile, editor of the ‘Daily Bell.’
According to Wile, Gaddafi’s plan would have strengthened the entire continent of Africa in the eyes of economists backing sound money, not to mention international investors who had long been concerned over America’s insolvency. It would have been especially devastating for the US economy, the American dollar, and particularly the Elite-banksters.
“…if Arab and African nations had begun adopting a gold-backed currency, it would have had major repercussions for debt-laden Western governments that would be far more significant than the purported ‘democratic’ uprisings sweeping the region this year. And it would have spelled big trouble for the elite who benefit from ‘freshly counterfeited funny-money.’ Had Gaddafi sparked a gold-driven monetary revolution, he would have done well for his own people, and for the world at large. But a Gaddafi-driven gold revolution would have, however, imperilled the positions of central bankers and their political and media power-brokers.” Ilana Mercer, ‘WorldNetDaily’
Of course, none of this was reported in the western, mainstream media.
Adding credence to the theory of why Gaddafi had to be eliminated, as The New American reported in March, was the strange decision of the ‘rebel’ opposition to Gaddafi to create a central bank to replace Gaddafi’s state-owned monetary authority. This decision was broadcast to the world in the early weeks of the conflict. In a statement, the rebel council announced, among other things, the creation of a new oil company, and more significantly, “Designation of the Central Bank of Benghazi as a monetary authority competent in monetary policies in Libya and appointment of a Governor to the Central Bank of Libya, with a temporary headquarters in Benghazi.”
So, in just a few short weeks, amid complete unrest in Libya, not knowing if they would or could maintain their new-found power, these mostly financially-illiterate ‘rebels’ thought that a Central Bank would be a good idea? Why change something that had worked perfectly for years, had brought Libya out of poverty, something that the nation owned, into a new central bank owned by the same Elitist criminals that own America’s Federal Reserve? Why handover all of their resources to an international banking cartel? To thoughtfully and generously prevent a ‘world-wide financial panic,’ or because they were under the control of the international banksters?
The creation of a new central bank, even more so than the new national oil regime, left financial analysts across the world scratching their heads, and simply asking, ‘why?’
“I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising. This suggests we have a bit more than a rag-tag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences. The uprising looks like a major oil and money play, with the true disaffected rebels being used as puppets and cover while the transfer of control over money and oil supplies takes place.” Robert Wenzel, for the Economic Policy Journal.
In 2007, the former US General, Wesley Clark told Democracy Now that just ten days after 9/11, another general had told him that the Bush government was planning to invade, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan and Iran. What all these countries had in common at the time, was that they were not members of the BIS, the Bank of International Settlements, i.e., the banking cartel.
The ‘Human Rights Watch’ reported that there had NEVER been any type of civilian bloodbath by Gaddafi, contrary to what we had been told by the professional liars in the mainstream media. We were also told constantly that Gaddafi, was a ‘madman,’ a brutal dictator and a grave danger to peace. However, there is plenty of evidence to counter this. There is plenty of film footage depicting Ghaddafi riding in an open car, standing and waving to the crowds for miles in the open air, standing on balconies, an easy target in fact for an assassin, with no security guards to protect him. There were no attempts on his life during all his years as Libyan leader – except from the US, which ultimately succeeded. He was nothing like the much-hated and vilified fiend that he was portrayed to be by the Zionist news media.
Indeed, why would a people living in such a benevolent society hate Ghaddafi? According to polls, over 83% of them deeply grieved his death. He roamed freely in Libyan streets, not once coming under attack from his people, not until he threatened the international banksters, that is. The killing of Muammar Gaddafi at the hands of the banksters’ NATO-backed forces marked the end of a campaign expressly aimed at the assassination of a legally-elected head of state and the overthrow of a sovereign country in direct violation of international standards that had been in force since the Nuremberg trials at the end of WWII and the establishment of the Geneva Conventions.
The NATO campaign, known as ‘Operation Unified Protector,’ was a continuation of the US-led Operation ‘Odyssey Dawn.’ It formally began on 23rd March 2011 and was ostensibly an operation to enforce United Nations Security Council resolution 1973. From the outset, the NATO coalition partners insisted that the aim of the mission was not to assist a rebel insurgency in overthrowing the Gaddafi government, but to ‘protect civilians,’ in accordance with UN resolutions.
Within one month, the true aim of the intervention, to assassinate Gaddafi was confirmed when NATO forces bombed the personal residence of Saif al-Arab Gaddafi, Muammar’s youngest son in an admitted attempt to kill the Libyan leader himself. While Gaddafi himself was not caught in the strike, his son and three of his grandchildren were killed in the bombings. Muammar Gaddafi, leader of the Libyan people for 42 years, was brutally executed in a series of events on 20th October 2011 in the coastal city of Sirte. The city had been a bastion of resistance to the US-NATO war in Libya which had been raging for over eight months.
Gaddafi, 69, was in Sirte directing the resistance fighters who had defended the country against a bankster imperialist-engineered civil war and bombing campaign that had resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of Libyans and other foreign nationals. Just two days prior to the assassination of Gaddafi, Obama’s Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton was in Libya meeting with the National Transitional Council rebel regime calling for the capture and killing of the leader who had ruled the North African state since the Al-Fateh Revolution of September 1969.
The strike that resulted in the death of Gaddafi was initiated, organised, coordinated and led by NATO and SAS forces. The attack began when Gaddafi was fleeing Sirte in a convoy of 75 vehicles. Drone pilots at Creech Air Force base in Nevada launched a round of Hellfire missiles from a Predator drone aircraft, destroying the lead vehicle and prompting a French bomber to release two laser-guided 500 pound bombs into the centre of the convoy. British SAS troops, meanwhile, coordinated the ground forces that eventually captured Gaddafi.
It was initially said that Gaddafi was killed in crossfire involving loyalist forces and the NTC rebels. However, this fabrication quickly evaporated when a video, shot by someone in the ‘lynch-mob’ showed that Gaddafi was alive when apprehended, then beaten and brutally sodomised, before being summarily executed without trial.
And then there were three. Now only three countries in the entire world are without a Rothschild-controlled Central Bank…
Iran, North Korea and Cuba. Libya is no longer on the list.
So it is said that we are fighting a ‘war on (of) terror’ against Islamic fundamentalists. We are deceptively told that they are greatest threat of all, to our ‘freedom.’ Which freedom is this I would venture to ask? They, not ‘we’ are killing Islamic fundamentalists in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Ethiopia, Yemen and anywhere else the Global Hawk can reach. No trial or evidence is required, just summary execution by the invisible hand of western justice. When Bush junior was in power he said, “…we will bring them to justice,” which apparently now only involves an Air Force computer operator in Reno, Nevada pressing the ‘kill’ button. In the process they (I refuse to use the term ‘we’ – these sadistic mass-murderers do not represent me) have made war and destroyed the infrastructure of several sovereign countries and killed millions of innocent people, all under the guise of ‘liberation.’
The original terrorists who began the uprising in Libya, had suddenly become ‘freedom fighters.’ By what magic did this transformation occur? How did Obama, Hillary Clinton et al, transform those bloodthirsty terrorists, worthy of summary execution in any other circumstances, into the heroes of liberation in Libya? Are these terrorists now ‘their’ new allies in the War of Terror? If our friends in the US decide to overthrow the criminal cabal in Washington and Wall Street, will they too, be embraced as ‘heroes and liberators?’
If we drag the banksters through the streets, torture, beat and kill them, will we be heroes? In one set of circumstances they would appear to be terrorists and yet in another they are the new ‘heroes of democracy.’
If American ‘patriots’ took back their country back from the banks and corporations, would they still be patriots – or terrorists? Would they be embraced as heroes or would NATO attempt to eliminate them? Would they bomb them back to the Stone Age and call it ‘saving civilian lives’ and ‘liberation?’ Would they send in black ops and Special Forces and the SAS to track them down and coordinate air strikes? Would they even bother with a UN resolution or just take the law into their own hands?
Gaddafi was of course confused by this too. He now trusted the West again. He had turned over his WMDs to Bush, delayed upgrading his missile air defence system and long range weapons. He was a man of peace but the leaders of the West that had once embraced him as a friend and ally were again trying to kill him, as Reagan had in 1986. Beware westerners bearing gifts. Do you think that the banksters may have been after the spoils of war? The oil, and not forgetting the 144 tons of gold! Gaddafi’s last recorded words to his captors were, “Do you know right from wrong?” Apparently not.
Many ‘brainwashed’ people seem to enjoy this macabre spectacle of betrayal and butchery. They justify it to themselves by convincing themselves that Gaddafi was a ‘brutal dictator’ and deserved his fate. I saw only the brutality of America, the UK, France, NATO and the ‘terrorist rats’ they used to depose Gaddafi. Libya today is a testament to the west’s deception, brutality, treachery and moral corruption and also to their thievery as they the appropriate the $200bn of sovereign wealth funds Libya had invested around the world. The bankster-sponsored leaders of the free world are the real brutal murderers and terrorists.
