who do you believe?



Libya was run by a long-governing, popular revolutionary leader -- Muammar Gaddafi -- who in the last decade of his rule, had begun to re-approach Western Powers, and was implementing a gradual (too gradual!) succession, transferring power to his well-educated and articulate elder son, Saif-al-Islam.

Gaddafi even organized meetings and summits with EU partners, in one of which -- an Arab League Summit in his home-town Sirte in September 2010 -- Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi even kissed Gaddafi's hand.

But all of that came too late. The Gaddafis made the worst mistake any sovereign country can make nowadays: they trusted the Western Powers. Huge lesson there!
Contrary to Bahrain, which houses US Naval forces; or Egypt, which is aligned to Israeli geopolitical interests; or Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and UAE, which are playing fields for Western oil companies, Gaddafi's Libya kept its oil revenues for the Libyan people. They ran a central bank totally independent of the US Fed, Goldman Sachs, European Central Bank, JP Morgan Chase, HSBC...

They even planned to introduce a gold currency -- the Gold Dinar with real intrinsic value -- to trade North African oil, which would have swept aside the US Dollar and Euro funny-money paper currencies that have been hugely eroded by the bail-out of the Mega-Bankers running the US, UK and EU, as the Chinese understand so well... In other words, Libya was a sovereign country.

The biggest mistake Quackdaffy done was use his cell phone.

Sorry, but until these guys learn how to create a counter the Obama administration 21st century semi-autonomous drones, electronic warfare and data informatics, they are all just one wrong move away....

Well the Colonel made a lot of mistakes, including giving up his nuclear program, and allowing his country to participate in the CIA's rendition program. These very CIA prisoners, once released by Saif, were armed by NATO to fight the Jamahiriyi. I don't know why anyone in the world believes that they can be allies with pit vipers.

The Leno audience cheered when the Predator-in-Chief said that Libya was a recipe for success. The overwhelming majority of the American people could care less about the truth.  It does matter that Muslim children are being killed by American bombs, because they are just sand niggers, and potential terrorists who want to kill Americans.

Most dumb-ass Americans still believe that Muammar Qaddafi was responsible for the downing of Pan Am 103. The National Security State knew exactly who had a real motivation, and that's where they focused their investigation until TPTB forced Reagan to shift the blame to Qaddafi.
