Col. Muammar Gaddafi: True hero of Libya

Ever since 2012, I have seen hordes of ignorant morons praising American actions in Iraq and Libya. These people term the shameful terrorist attacks of US on Libya and brutal murder of Col.Muammar Gaddafi as “liberation of Libyan people”. Amazingly millions around the world see America as a humanitarian nation which wages wars for the sake of liberation and protection of humanity. Well matter of the fact is US is just as much humane for humanity, like a tiger is humane towards a goat. Americans proclaim that Gaddafi was a tyrant who committed heinous crimes against people of Libya and thus had to be eliminated. US government often uses this humanitarian bullshit to cover its true motives behind attacking any sovereign nation. US acts as if it is the protector of humanity and can’t ignore any crimes on humanity, no matter where in the world.


Well my question is where was this brave protector of humanity when US backed dictatorship slaughtered a million of indigenous Mayan Indians in Guatemala? Where was this humane spirit of America when Ronald Raegan armed murderous contras in Nicaragua who murdered half a million innocent civilians? Where was this god appointed protector of mankind when US backed Pakistani Army killed a million Bangladeshis during their struggle for Independence in 1971? Where was this great saviour of humanity when US empowered dictatorial regime killed million Haitians? Where was America when Indonesian forces backed and armed by USA invaded and killed millions of East Timorians? Where was this righteous ideology when Congolese President Patrice Lumumba came to US begging for military support to establish peace in his country? Instead of helping Lumumba, US aided and orchestrated a military coup in Congo. And upon siezing control the establishment publicly executed the true leader of Congolese people, Patrice Lumumba.


I can cite numerous such cases where US backed and armed foreign governments killed millions of innocent civilians. There are even some cases where members of American intelligence agencies themselves committed assassinations and crimes against humanity like genocides. Arming forces of Milosevic Slobodan, arming Mujaheddin to fight Russians which later became Taliban, orchestrating coup in Panama, aiding dictatorial regimes in Georgia and Ukraine, aiding fascist dictators in Greece and Italy and arming and aiding of Israel in committing genocides in Gaza, these are just a few examples of humanitarian spirit of America.

America never was, niether is now and nor will it ever be a humanitarian protector of mankind. America is just a enforcer for the elite banking cartel. American government’s only interest is in achieving maximum financial and economic benefits by whatever means necessary. So when people argue that US attacked Iraq and Libya just to liberate the people from brutal dictators, I am frankly amazed by their wilful ignorance and overwhelmingly naive thinking. Iraq and Libya’s vast oil reserves is the only reason behind America’s intervention in Libya and Iraq.

But to understand the emergence of Col. Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, we have to understand the reason behind the widespread social and political unrest all over Libya in 1960s. King Idris was the first and only king of Libya who ruled from 1952 to 1969. While in Turkey for medical treatment, Idris was deposed in a 1969 coup d’etat by army officers led by Col. Muammar Gaddafi. But why did Gaddafi conspire in the overthrow of King Idris’s regime?
King Idris’s government was increasingly unpopular by the latter 1960s. He had centralised Libya’s federal system in cahoot with the international banking cartel to take advantage of the country’s immense oil wealth, exacerbating traditional regional and tribal divisions. Corruption and entrenched systems of patronage were widespread throughout the oil industry. Arab nationalism was increasingly becoming popular, and protests flared up following Egypt’s 1967 defeat in the Six day war with Israel.  King Idris openly allied with the western powers, moreover  Idris administration was regarded as pro-Israeli. There was an anger brewing amongst Libyans regarding their King and his policies. 


In mid-1969, King Idris travelled abroad to spend the summer in Turkey and Greece. Gaddafi’s Free Officers recognized this as their chance to overthrow the monarchy, initiating “Operation Jerusalem”. On 1 September, they occupied airports, police depots, radio stations and government offices in Tripoli and Benghazi. Gaddafi took control of the Berka barracks in Benghazi, while Omar Meheisha occupied Tripoli barracks and Jalloud seized the city’s anti-aircraft batteries. Khweldi Hameidi was sent to arrest crown prince Sayyid Hasan ar-Rida al-Mahdi as-Sanussi, and force him to relinquish his claim to the throne. They met no serious resistance, and wielded little violence against the monarchists. 


Having abolished the monarchy, Gaddafi proclaimed the foundation of the Libyan Arab Republic. Addressing the populace by radio, he proclaimed an end to the “reactionary and corrupt” regime, “the stench of which has sickened and horrified us all.” Due to the coup’s bloodless nature, it was initially labelled the “White Revolution”, although was later renamed the “One September Revolution” after the date on which it occurred. Gaddafi insisted that the Free Officers’ coup represented a revolution, marking the start of widespread change in the socio-economic and political nature of Libya. He proclaimed that the revolution meant “freedom, socialism and unity”, and over the coming years implemented measures to achieve this.


So contrary to prevalent belief the seizure of power by Muammar Gaddafi of Libya in 1969 was achieved without shedding any blood. It is a fact that the Libyan people supported and hailed Gaddafi as hero after he overthrew the corrupt and pro-Israeli regime of King Idris.

After successful coup, a 12 member committee called Revolutionary Command Council (RCC) was set up as the new Libyan Government. RCC chaired by Col. Muammar Gaddafi, purged monarchists and members of Idris’ Sennudi clan from Libya’s political world and armed forces. Gaddafi believed this elite were opposed to the will of the Libyan people and had to be expunged.  

“People’s Courts” were founded to try various monarchist politicians and journalists for their crimes against Libyan citizens. And even though many were imprisoned, none were executed. Idris was sentenced to execution in absentia. So even after siezure of power, there were no incidents of violence in Libya.



ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL REFORMATION UNDER GADDAFI REGIME

After purging the corrupt monarchs out of Libya, The RCC and Gaddafi turned their attention towards economic and social reformation of Libya. With crude oil as the country’s primary export, Gaddafi sought to improve Libya’s outdated oil sector. In October 1969, he proclaimed that trade terms set by King Idris were unfair and benefitted foreign corporations more than the Libyan state and its citizens. By threatening to reduce production of oil, RCC successfully increased the price of Libyan oil in the international market. In 1970, other OPEC states followed by using similar tactics, leading to a global increase in the price of crude oil. The RCC followed with the Tripoli Agreement, in which they secured income tax, back-payments and better pricing from the oil corporations. These measures brought Libya an estimated $1 billion in additional revenues in its first year.

Increasing state control over the oil sector, the RCC began a program of nationalisation, starting with the expropriation of British Petroleum’s share of the BP-N.B. Hunt Sahir Field in December 1971. In September 1973, it was announced that all foreign oil producers active in Libya were to be nationalized. For Gaddafi, this was an important step towards socialism.  
It proved to be an economic success. While gross domestic product had been $3.8 billion in 1969, it had risen to $13.7 billion in 1974, and $24.5 billion in 1979. In turn, the Libyans’ standard of life greatly improved over the first decade of Gaddafi’s administration, and by 1979 the average per-capita income was at $8,170, up from $40 in 1951, this was above the average of many industrialized countries like Italy and the U.K.
These new policies regarding the oil industry of Libya, became the chief reason for western world’s dislike for Col. Muammar Gaddafi. Gaddafi had successfully countered and purged the Foreign Corporations which were looting the oil reserves of Libya. 
The RCC implemented measures for social reform, adopting sharia as a basis. The consumption of alcohol was banned, night clubs and Christian churches were shut down, traditional Libyan dress was encouraged, while Arabic was decreed as the only language permitted in official communications and road signs. From 1969 to 1973, the RCC introduced social welfare programs funded with oil money, which led to house-building projects and improved healthcare and education. In doing so, they greatly expanded the public sector, providing employment for thousands.
Compulsory education was expanded from 6 to 9 years old, while adult literacy programs and free university education were implemented. Beida University was founded, while Tripoli University and Benghazi University were expanded.
These early social programs proved popular within Libya. This popularity was partly due to Gaddafi’s personal charisma, youth and underdog status as a Bedouin, as well as his rhetoric emphasizing his role as the successor to the anti-Italian fighter Omar Mukhtar.
Gaddafi led RCC successfully implemented several social and economic reforms in Libya which phenomenally improved the lives of Libyan people. Unlike previous regimes, Gaddafi laid significant emphasis on developement of Libyan people by making them self-reliant and empowering them with education and financial security.

FOREIGN POLICY UNDER GADDAFI
Right from his early years Gaddafi disliked the influence that western and colonial nations enjoyed in Libya courtesy of King Idris’s regime. Furthermore Gaddafi utterly despised the foreign corporations operating within Libya. He believed that these foreign elements’s main agenda was maximisation of profits even at the expense of Libyan people. Gaddafi saw how Libyan people were struggling so hard just for their survival while these foreign entities and King Idris were getting rich by looting natural reserves of Libya.
So quite understandably upon siezing control, one of the main goals of Gaddafi was to eliminate the influence enjoyed by several entities of western and colonial nations. Although nations like United States of America, United Kingdom and France tried their level best to appease Gaddafi in order to secure their particular vested interests in Libya. Reason for this was that both UK and US had vested financial interests in Libya. Furthermore US and UK wanted continued allowance to operate military bases that were set up in Libya during King Idris’s regime.
Gaddafi was determined to reassert national sovereignty and expunge foreign colonial and imperialist influences. His administration insisted that the U.S. and U.K. remove their military bases from Libya, with Gaddafi proclaiming that “the armed forces which rose to express the people’s revolution [will not] tolerate living in their shacks while the bases of imperialism exist in Libyan territory.” The British left in March and the Americans in June 1970.
Italy also wielded significant influence over Libyan social, political and economic spheres, being a former Italian colony(1912-1940). Next Gaddafi wanted to curtail this Italian influence in Libya. in October 1970 all Italian-owned assets were expropriated and the 12,000-strong Italian community was expelled from Libya alongside a smaller number of Jews. This move earned Gaddafi a lot of criticism from leaders all over the world. Aiming to reduce North Atlantic Treaty Organisation(NATO) influence in the Mediterranean, in 1971 Libya requested the king of Malta to deny NATO the use its land for a military base, in turn offering them foreign aid. Compromising, Malta’s government continued allowing NATO use of the island, but only on the condition that they would not use it for launching attacks on Arab territory. Orchestrating a military build-up, the RCC began purchasing weapons from France and the Soviet Union. The commercial relationship with the latter led to an increasingly strained relationship with the U.S., who were then engaged in the Cold War with the Soviets.
After achieving primary objective of ridding Libya of western and colonial influences, Gaddafi diverted his attention towards improving Libyan relations with its Arab neighbours. Right from a very young age Gaddafi was deeply influenced by Egyptian president Gamal Abd Al-Nasser’s ideology of Arab nationalism. Gaddafi propounded Pan-Arab ideas, proclaiming the need for a single Arab state stretching across North Africa and the Middle East. In December 1969, Libya founded the Arab Revolutionary Front with Egypt and Sudan as a step towards political unification, and in 1970 Syria stated its intention to join. But this idea slowly lost all its momentum amongst Arab nations and eventually died by 1973.
Gaddafi was especially critical of the U.S. due to their support for Israel. Gaddafi supported the Palestinians in the Israel-Palestinian conflict and considered the 1948 creation of Israel as a Zionist Western colonial occupation forced on the Arab world. 
America continously alleged that Gaddafi financially supported militant groups across the world. Rather than being facts, most of these rhetorics were mere American attempts of creating a negative image of Gaddafi on a global stage. 
US’s alleged list of groups supported by Gaddafi include Black Panther PartyNation of Islam,Tupamaros19th of April Movement and Sandinista National Liberation Front in the Americas, the ANC among other liberation movements in the fight against Apartheid in South Africa in Africa, the Provisional Irish Republican ArmyAction directeETA, the Red Brigades, and the Red Army Faction in Europe, and the Armenian Secret ArmyJapanese Red ArmyFree Aceh Movement, and Moro National Liberation Front in Asia. 
He never hid the fact that he had close frienship with Dr.Nelson Mandela, Fidel Castro and Yassir Arafat.
Gaddafi himself confessed of supporting Palestinian liberation groups, liberation movements against apartheid in South Africa and IRA in their struggle against British Empire. But he candidly laughed at all these other alleged groups that he supported. 
 So you can understand how desperately American government wanted to demonise Muammar Gaddafi by the fact that they picked up every group engaged in freedom movement from all over the world as Gaddafi’s benefactee.

ATTACK ON LIBYA
America using its all time favourite tactic of false flag operation decided to blame Gaddafi for something that he didn’t committ. Ronald Raegan falsely accused Muammar Gaddafi as the person responsible for orchestrating 1986 Berlin Discotheque Bombing, in which two US soldiers died. Despite being adviced not to attack Libya by European allies of America including Germany,

Ronald Raegan ordered Operation El Dorado Canyon to be carried out. On 15 April 1986, U.S. military planes launched a series of air-strikes on Libya, bombing military installations in various parts of the country, killing around 100 Libyans, including several civilians. One of the targets had been Gaddafi’s home. Himself unharmed, two of Gaddafi’s sons were injured but Gaddafi’s four-year-old adopted daughter Hanna was killed. This action of America was criticised globally. 

Gaddafi was on the hitlist of elitists controlling US and UK right from the moment he kicked out British and American Corporations out of Libya who were sucking the life out of Libyan people. 
And this contempt for Gaddafi reached critical heights when Gaddafi proposed a new currency to be utilised in Libyan oil trade. Gaddafi proposed that Gold backed Dinar be used instead of worthless US$. Gaddafi believed that by issuing a gold backed currency wealth of any nation would be placed in it rightful place, in hands of citizens. Moreover a gold backed currency would stop corrupt banking cartels from printing as much money as they desire. This gold backed Dinar posed a significant threat to the monopoly that US$ enjoys as global trade reserve currency. Iraq was invaded by America shortly after Saddam Hussein declared that he would only trade Iraqi oil in EU€ rather than US$. That too posed a significant threat to US$ and struggling US economy. That is why US invaded Iraq to totally halt all Iraqi oil trades. And similarly because of the announcement of Gold backed Dinar, now Muammar Gaddafi posed a threat to US Elite.
Russia along with several other Asian and Arab nations have postulated that NATO intervention was only motivated by Gaddafi’s attempts to establish a unified federation of African states that would use the gold dinar as its currency and demand that foreign importers of African oil pay in gold.

SUPPORT FOR GADDAFI AND CRITICISM OF NATO INTERNATIONALLY
Accusations of imperialism on the part of NATO and the west were voiced by many leaders of states worldwide. Russian premier Vladmir Putin voiced his opposition publicly to any kind of intervention in Libya by the NATO. Iran‘s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said that he is totally against any kind of Western intervention, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez referred to Gaddafi as a martyr and an immortal hero of Libya, and President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe referred to the Western nations as vampires and Gaddafi as a true leader of his people. Several Governments all over the world mourned the assassination of Muammar Gaddafi and criticised the actions of NATO in Libya, which includes Raúl Castro in Cuba, Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua, Kim Jong-il in North KoreaHifikepunye Pohamba in Namibia and others. 
Amidst NATO lead attacks in Libya, Gaddafi himself referred to the intervention as a “colonialcrusade … capable of unleashing a full scale war”. A sentiment that was echoed by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was that the whole United Nations is a defective and flawed system, It allows everything. And its resolutions resemble the medieval calls for crusades. President Hu Jintao of the People’s Republic of China said, “Dialogue and other peaceful means are the ultimate solutions to problems,” and added, “If military action brings disaster to civilians and causes a humanitarian crisis, then it runs counter to the purpose of the UN resolution. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was critical of the intervention as well and harshly criticised the actions of NATO in a speech at the UN in September 2011. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, despite the substantial role his country played in the NATO mission, also spoke out against getting involved: “I had my hands tied by the vote of the parliament of my country. But I was against and I am against this intervention which will end in a way that no-one knows” and added “This wasn’t a popular uprising because Gaddafi was loved by his people, as I was able to see when I went to Libya.”

CAPTURE AND ASSASSINATION

During his last days of life, Gaddafi was continously being attacked by the rebels and NATO thugs. Cornered and left with no other option Gaddafi announced his willingness to negotiate for a handover to a transitional government, a suggestion rejected by the Americans. I say Americans because there was no revolution in Libya and there certainly weren’t any Libyan revolutionaries. These so called Libyan revolutionaries were just cheap thugs and mercenaries who were hired by CIA to assassinate Col. Muammar Gaddafi. Overwhelmed by the NATO murdrers Col. Gaddafi surrounded himself with bodyguards, he continually moved residences to escape NATO shelling, devoting his days to prayer and reading the Qur’an. On 20 October, Gaddafi broke out of Sirte’s District 2 in a joint civilian-military convoy, hoping to take refuge in the Jarref Valley. At around 8.30am, NATO bombers attacked, destroying at least 14 vehicles and killing at least 53. The convoy scattered, and Gaddafi and those closest to him fled to a nearby villa, which was shelled by rebel militia from Misrata. Fleeing to a construction site, Gaddafi and his inner consort hid inside drainage pipes while his bodyguards battled the rebels; in the conflict, Gaddafi suffered head injuries from a grenade blast while defence minister Abu-Bakr Yunis Jabr was killed.

A Misratan militia took Gaddafi prisoner, beating him and stabbing him in the anus, causing serious injuries and blood loss. Shockingly the events were filmed on a mobile phone. Pulled onto the front of a pick-up truck, he fell off as it drove away. His semi-naked, lifeless body was then placed into an ambulance and taken to Misrata Hospital and upon arrival he was declared dead on arrival. The brutality with which Col. Muammar Gaddafi was murdered shows an insight into the domeanor of these so called revolutionaries. 


So when you think about the murder of Col. Muammar Gaddafi, make no mistake about who killed him. He was assassinated in a most horrible and brutal manner by the mercenaries hired by the CIA. These mercenaries were just cheap thugs who were armed with rifles by Americans to facilitate the occupation of another sovereign country. These were the same people who played Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, Hijackers on 9-11, Insurgents in Iraq, Mujahedin in Lebanon and Jordan and Iran. All these are same people because all these groups were created by CIA for their covert operations. There was no revolution in Libya you morons. People loved Col. Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. There were no Libyan rebels fighting a revolution against tyranny. All these revolutionaries were nothing more than cheap human scum, who are always ready to kill anyone for the sake of all mighty dollar. So stop getting fooled repeatedly by everyone. 

Two entities mainly responsible for masterminding the murder of Col. Muammar Gaddafi are the Zionist cunts who control western nations and NATO and current king of Saudi Arabia Abdullah Abdulaziz along with that pedophile fat bastard Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia. The Royal House of Saud have continuously undermined the rights of Muslims and Arabs in Middle East. Royal Saudi family is an integral part of illuminati bloodlines and is directly related to many royal families of Europe. During the recent Arab Spring uprisings, a lot of dissented citizens of Saudi Arabia also rallied against the King Aziz’s tyrannical regime but the uprising was quickly crushed by military of Saudi Arabia. Hundreds of protesting civilians were killed during this violent clash between Saudi Army and innocent unarmed civilians. So did US and NATO notice these heinous crimes. No, offcourse not by their definition crimes against humanity are only committed by non-allied nations of America. And that fat bastard Prince Bandar is still selling out the future of Arabic people and Muslims of Middle East to the western nations.

LEGACY OF COL. MUAMMAR GADDAFI

Col. Muammar Gaddafi might be dead but the numerous differences he made in lives of millions of Libyans will be remembered till the end of time. His philosophy of an ideal state is enshrined within the pages of green book. Gaddafi placed utmost value and importance on the lives of his people. 

After Col. Gaddafi seized reign of Libya, he started numerous projects for social, economical and financial developement of Libyans. And he successfully managed to bring Libya from depths of starvation to the present stature of self sustaining Libya. As Libyan oil started to bring in large amounts of wealth as well as foreign investors, country experienced a period of immense developement and rise at a global stage. Gaddafi started many free programms and projects for raising the quality of life of Libyans. Libya itself rose from a nation plagued by famine, starvation and poverty to new heights becoming one of the most prosperous nations in that region. In short time GDP of Libya even surpassed many European nations. The average per-capita income of average Libyan reached $8,170, from previous figure of $40 in 1951, this was above the average of many industrialized countries like Italy and the U.K. The shear amount of free services provided to Libyans was truly unbelievable. Even none of the western nations provided this much benefits to its citizens. 


Free medical care, free education, free water and electricity, free internet and phone services. Subsidised prices to buy cars and even half of that was payed by the state, subsidised property purchase with 50 % paid by the state. Interest free loans yeah that’s right no interest on any loans. Can you even imagine our government doing that? I already mentioned free education, but just in case if you wanted to attend better universities abroad than in that case state paid all the tuition and living expenses overseas. Fuel was sold to public at an unbelievable rate of about $0.14 per gallon. Above all many of these services were even available to non-citizens. If by any chance you were suffering from some chronical illness and best chance for your survival was to go abroad for treatment, then state picked up your tab and paid all the expenses. 


When was the last time you heard of any state providing so many free services to its citizens. There were numerous free homes available all over Libya where poor and homeless could stay forever. Substantial amount of stipends paid to unemployed, senior citizens, poor homeless, sickely and disabled people. Lives of Libyan people had never been so prosperous then under Col.Muammar Gaddafi’s reign.

World’s perception of Col. Muammar Gaddafi might be distorted for the rest of the world, but Libyans know the truth. And they will always remember Col. Muammar Gaddafi for being a great leader and true hero of Libya. His name will echo forever in the hearts of millions of Libyans.
