Victory at last! Liberation for Libya?
Muammar Qaddafi, the famous freedom fighter or Reagan’s ‘Mad Dog of the Middle East? At 69 years old executed in his hometown of Sirte.
As of October 20th since the beginning of the NATO operations (31 March 2011, 06.00GMT) a total of 26,089 sorties, including 9,618 strike sorties, have been conducted and they finally did it.
Was he vicious dictator who ruled Libya with a bloody iron hand and a friend to terrorists; a constant threat to America?
Or was he a good man, a freedom fighter who had good intentions at heart but was ignorant of the world order?
Take the time and read and view the videos on this page and come to a well-rounded decision. I know it may be real hard for some after the full bore mind assault from the compromised main stream media but please give it a look and let me know what you think.
I will first start out with a little history and video of the beginning of Qaddafi’s reign and move through some of the conspiracies and facts some may not know about.
Coup d’état of 1969 from wikipedia
‘The discovery of significant oil reserves in 1959 and the subsequent income from petroleum sales enabled the Kingdom of Libya to transition from one of the world’s poorest nations to a wealthy state. Although oil drastically improved the Libyan government’s finances, resentment began to build over the increased concentration of the nation’s wealth in the hands of King Idris. This discontent mounted with the rise of Nasserism and Arab nationalism throughout North Africa and the Middle East.
On 1 September 1969, the so-called Free Officers Movement, a group of about 70 young army officers and enlisted men mostly assigned to the Signal Corps, seized control of the government and in a stroke abolished the Libyan monarchy. The coup was launched at Benghazi, and within two hours the takeover was completed. Army units quickly rallied in support of the coup, and within a few days firmly established military control in Tripoli and elsewhere throughout the country. Popular reception of the coup, especially by younger people in the urban areas, was enthusiastic. Fears of resistance in Cyrenaica and Fezzan proved unfounded. No deaths or violent incidents related to the coup were reported.
The Free Officers Movement, which claimed credit for carrying out the coup, was headed by a twelve-member directorate that designated itself the Revolutionary Command Council (RCC). This body constituted the Libyan government after the coup. In its initial proclamation on September 1, the RCC declared the country to be a free and sovereign state called the Libyan Arab Republic, which would proceed “in the path of freedom, unity, and social justice, guaranteeing the right of equality to its citizens, and opening before them the doors of honorable work.” The rule of the Turks and Italians and the “reactionary” regime just overthrown were characterized as belonging to “dark ages”, from which the Libyan people were called to move forward as “free brothers” to a new age of prosperity, equality, and honor.’

1986- Reagans bombing and sanctions crippled Libya: Subversion and aggression against states?
And… history repeats itself- Protecting the Libyan people?
Retaliation for the 1986 Berlin discotheque bombing where on April 5, 1986 three people were killed and 230 people injured some permanently, including 79 American servicemen. It is not known whether Gaddafi or Libyan intelligence were involved with the attack, though Qaddafi had called for Arab assaults on American interests worldwide over the provocation of the U.S. that caused the US- Libyan naval incident in the Gulf of Sidra where 35 on a Libyan patrol boat were killed in what was inside and known as Qaddafi ‘The Line of Death’ off the shores of Libya’s coast line.
1988 Lockerbie bombing: Libya framed
Below 2 paragraphs from my report Casualties or Victims?
We are all victims of this want to be, trying to be, new world order system that is defining our reality today by force. Victims just like the Defense Intelligence team including Maj. Charles Dennis McKee and Matthew Gannon on their way back to Washington with evidence on the CIA’s heroin trafficking. All aboard Pan Am 103, on December 21 1988 that exploded in the air over Lockerbie Scotland, falsely blamed on Libya.
Victims like the 35 students studying abroad with Syracuse University that were on stand-by for a flight over the Christmas holiday who unluckily got aboard Pan Am 103 because diplomats and military officials had been pulled from the flight by the U.S State Department. Oh’ and we thought this Libya issue today was about humanitarian intervention. If you want to know the whole story click here.
Lockerbie – CIA framed Libya [BBC]
The pay off
In October 2008 Libya paid $1.5 billion in compensation as a deal to lift the sanctions upon Libya to victims of the 1986 Berlin discotheque bombing, the 1986 US bombing of Tripoli and Benghazi, relatives of the Lockerbie bombing victims and the 1989 UTA Flight 772 bombing. Qaddafi never admitted to being guilty of any of the bombings.
As a result of the payment from Libya, the White House said President Bush signed Executive Order 13477 giving the Libyan government immunity to all pending lawsuits and related cases in the US. Sean McCormack the US State Department spokesman at the time called the move a “laudable milestone clearing the way for a continued and expanding US-Libyan partnership.”
Other conspiracies Qaddafi wasn’t afraid to speak of
Qaddafi on vaccines from his historic hour and a half long speech to the UN General Assembly in 2009:
“Our handling of matters is actually wrong. If the vaccination for swine flu is produced and there could be more flus of God or flus of fish then the factories that belong to the intelligence operate and they sell at a high price. This is trade. They produce a virus and they spread it across the world so that capitalist companies gain money from selling vaccines. This is shameful. The vaccines are not to be sold. Medicines are not to be sold. You have to read the Green Book. It does not allow the selling of medicines. If we say the medicines are free and the vaccines are free and no viruses are spread because it is they who produce these viruses in order to produce vaccines. That is how capitalist companies work. This is the wrong approach. You have to declare that medicines are free and not for sale. Even if the viruses are real we should not sell the vaccines. They have to be offered for free. All these matters are submitted in files to be discussed by the UN General Assembly.”
The Truth about the Kennedy Assassination & Obama Told by Qaddafi
Does the Dimona nuclear plant ring a bell? JFK wanted to know about it and other WMDs Israel has.
“Israel need not apologize for the assassination or destruction of those who seek to destroy it. The first order of business for any country is the protection of its people.”- Washington Jewish Week, Oct 9, 1997
Shocking Truth About Qaddafi — what you don’t know.
Why Qaddafi Was Targeted
Below are the main 8 reasons written by Stephen Lendman
(1) He opted out of AFRICOM, one of nine global Pentagon commands, to control the Africa and the Mediterranean Basin, including its strategic energy transit routes and choke points, crucial to keep open for world economies. All African countries participate except Sudan, Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast, Eritrea, and Libya. He also backed an initiative to create a United States of Africa, whereas Washington wants easily exploitable divisions.
(2) Besides ranked ninth in the world with 42 billion proved barrels of oil reserves (and large amounts of gas), its untapped potential is believed much greater. Moreover, being nearly sulfur-free, it’s even more valued for its extremely high quality. At issue isn’t access, it’s control over who develops, produces and receives it in what amounts.
(3) In January 2009, Gaddafi wanted to nationalize Libyan oil, but his timetable faced internal resistance. According to Pravda.ru’s March 25, 2011 article titled, “Reason for war? Gaddafi wanted to nationalise oil,” he considered the option because of low oil prices at the time, saying:
“The oil-exporting countries should opt for nationalisation because of the rapid fall in oil prices. We must put the issue on the table and discuss it seriously. Oil should be owned by the State at this time, so we could better control prices by the increase or decrease in production.”
In February 2009, he asked for public support to distribute Libya’s oil wealth directly to the people. However, senior officials feared losing their jobs “due to a parallel plan by Gaddafi to rid the state of corruption.” He was also advised about the possibility of capital flight.
As a result, Libya’s Popular Committee voted 468 – 64 to delay nationalization plans, even though a 251 majority viewed the change as positive.
Note: Gaddafi didn’t consider how powerful insiders manipulate all markets up or down for profit, including oil, irrespective of demand. It’s brazen fraud but goes on all the time, especially on Wall Street in collusion with Washington.
(4) Libya’s Great Man-Made River (GMMR) is developing an ocean-sized aquifer beneath the desert for irrigation, human consumption, and other uses. At 2007 consumption rates, it could last 1,000 years. No wonder Gaddafi calls his Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System (NSAS) the “Eighth Wonder of the World.”
At issue, of course, is the wish of the global elite to control water, privatizing it, making water unaffordable for many, perhaps most Libyans. In other words, neoliberal control will exploit it for maximum profits, not equitable use as a public resource.
(5) Ellen Brown’s April 13 article titled, “Libya: All About Oil, or All About Banking?” raised another, easily overlooked, issue. Who controls Libya’s money, the lifeblood of every economy? In 1970, Henry Kissinger said, “Control oil and you control nations. Control food and you control people.” He neglected to add, control money and you control everything because without it economies collapse.
At issue is whether it’s public or private like most nations, including America under the Federal Reserve that isn’t federal and has no reserves as Ron Paul explains.
Under Gaddafi, “the Central Bank of Libya is 100% State owned.” In other words, it creates its own money, the Libyan Dinar, interest free to be used productively for economic growth, not profits and bonuses for predatory bankers.
However, after Washington’s led NATO intervention, the privately controlled Central Bank of Benghazi was established to let Western bankers, not Libyans, run things. Money control indeed appears an important reason for intervening, perhaps most important of all.
(6) On April 24, Manlio Dinucci’s Global Research article headlined, “Financial Heist of the Century: Confiscating Libya’s Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF),” saying:
Besides money, oil, gas, water, and other reasons, the “Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) manages” an estimated $70 billion, “rising to more than $150 billion (including) foreign investments of the Central Bank and other bodies. But it might be more.”
Confiscation gives US/NATO interests easy money to use for their own purposes, no matter that doing so amounts to grand theft, an American/Western specialty in league with Wall Street and its European counterparts.
The USA has already confiscated $32 billion and 45 billion Euros, the former was starting capital for African projects, see below.
(7) Libya was central to Africa’s independence, and cutting loose from foreign private central banks, as well as the ability to issue its own currency instead of that issued abroad, such as the CFA Franc. This too is the reason for the overthrow of Gbagbo in Ivory Coast.
After funding Africa’s first and only communications satellite, saving Africa some $500 million annually, by paying $300 million with the remainder of the total one-off cost of $377 million, allowing the price of calls to and from Africa to drop drastically, Libya put aside $32 billion for a $42 billion African fund to launch a non-private African Central Bank (HQ in Nigeria), African Monetary Fund (HQ in Cameroon) and African Investment Bank (HQ in Libya).
Obama’s administration has stolen the $32 billion, which would have launched this massive African fund this year, and allowed health, education and communication projects and infrastructure development all over Africa. This huge robbery is going unreported.
Additionally 45 billion Euros, and unknown other amounts of billions of Libya’s money has been “confiscated” (stolen) in Europe.
(8) Gaddafi has been advocating a new “Gold Standard” and use of gold dinars instead of U.S. paper dollars, a plan that has won the support of much of Africa and the Muslim world, as it would provide real monetary wealth and value, rather than privately printed money from private central banks. The U.S. printing of paper dollars by a printing machine of the private central Federal Reserve Bank would become useless in its dealings with purchases of oil and other commodities from much of Africa and Asia, and perhaps Latin America too.
“They said they didn’t want to kill Gaddafi. Now some officials say: ‘Yes, we are trying to kill Gaddafi.’ Who permitted this, was there a trial? Who took on the right to execute this man, no matter who he is?”

Why Qaddafi must die!
Libya: Gaddafi’s position in Africa ( What now for Africa?)
“It’s time to start a new Libya, a united Libya; one people, one future.”
-Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said in Tripoli
Yeah Right…Good Luck!
Muammar Qaddafi Dead; died from ignorance of the world and trying to change it!
Or is he? Or did he?
Did they kill Quadaffi, Gadhafi, Gaddafi or maybe it was Khadafyi?
