Senseless Bloodshed of the Libyan People
The rabid bombing of
Libya in the past 5 monthes has left an untold number dead, most
Mainstreamers will tell you that fact is a selling point, nothing but a
sympathtic opinion, but its the simple truth affliated with NATO since
The obvious forgery of Tripoli Square, a fake set filmed by Al Jazeera,
made to look as if Tripoli had been taken by rebels in late August.
The reports now are that ‘Rebel’ troops are beheading Libyan civilians.
This hatred is a typical example of a NATO, U.S., European Union
But this isn’t just some simple tale of a poverty stricken nation being
manipulated into a civil war. Libya’s history is as complicated as the
In 1969 Mohammar Quaddafi lead a peaceful campaign to route out the
British Monarchy and King Idris I, who had ruled over Libya since WWII.
Since that time, Libya went from being the poorest country in the
entire world, and one of the most uneducated, to the powerhouse of
Libya’s literacy rate shot from 9% to 90%, it has the lowest rates of
poverty, infant mortality, malnourishment and incarceration not only in
Africa, but the entire world. This alongside a high life expectancy,
the largest GDP and the highest Human Development Index in Africa, free
health care and education and was one of the few countries still under
rapid growth during the global recession.
This prosperity reached its zenith when, in 2004 the US/European Trade
embargo on Libya was lifted, re-opening its oil wells and causing an
influx of foreign investment.
The Libyan Investment Authority was founded in 2006, and invested the
money worldwide. The effect of these investments greatly benefitted not
just libya, but all of Africa in the form of employment, security and
the launch of the first satellites by the Regional African Satellite
A multi-billion dollar a year surplus resulted, which Libyan Leader
Mohammar Quaddafi wanted to give “directly to the Libyan people” in the
form of a gold currency.
His philanthropy did not sit well with International powers, so the LIA
and the United Nations wanted him out; in order to rob Libyans of their
Also significant were the Human Rights suggestions for Libya the United
Nations had set forth in their November 2010 Human Rights Council
Report, after his ernest 2009 visit. Their complaints about the
Government structure were benign, citing only a general trend of
indefinability of Libyan law, but also that:
people’s democratic system and the basic legislation applied in the
Jamahiriya together form a basis for the enjoyment of all rights, in
addition to which human rights and democracy are fundamental values of
Libyan Jamahiri society.
When Quaddafi refused to participate, the UN began to put political
pressure on the leader.
But Quaddafi resisted, so a coup was staged on feb 17, 2011 called ‘the
day of rage.’ Citizens were convinced by Internationally funded
‘rebels’ that Quaddafi was corrupt and responsible for high
unemployment rates, violation of freedom of expression and
deteriorating living conditions in a time of global economic starvation.
Quaddafi’s defiance leads to the the seizing of 32 billion dollars by
the US on Feb 28th, which had been deposited just 5 weeks before by the
corrupt LIA. 45 billion Euros were also seized by the European Union,
in an effort to economically starve Quaddafi out of power.
But he was sitting on a pile of gold, enough to fund a 20 year war, so
NATO took action. The airstrikes began in March 18, 2011.
Obama claimed the actions were humanitarian while civilians were
slaughtered, he claimed Quaddafi had lost the confidence of his people,
despite the majority of Libya rallys being in his favour.
Obama, under the direction of NATO, then breaks Constitutional law
under the guise of a kenetic military action.
Today, Libya lies in ruin, a Libyan holocaust has been perpetrated by
the new world.
