i also believe that it wasn't just the oil and trading in gold that caused the problems the west had with him. i think it was his wanting to unite north africa faster than it was going, caused the west and the ptb to see him more as a threat than just a nuisance.
The United States of Africa is a proposed concept for a federation of some or all of the 54 sovereign states of Africa. Former Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi, who was the 2009 Chairperson of the African Union (AU), advanced the idea of a United States of Africa at two regional African summits: first in June 2007 in Conakry, Guinea, and again in February 2009 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Gaddafi had previously pushed for its creation at a summit at Lomé, Togo in 2000, having described the AU as a failure on a number of occasions; Gaddafi asserted that only a true pan-African state can provide stability and wealth to Africa. A number of senior AU members also support the proposed federation, believing that it could bring peace to a 'new' Africa. Alpha Oumar Konaré, former President of Mali and former Chairperson of the African Union Commission, spoke in favor of the concept at the commemoration of Africa Day, on May 25, 2006.
United States of Africa
The Libyan leader Gaddafi wants the unification process of Africa to be as fast as possible. Though not everyone of the African leader gathered recently in Addis Ababa, for the African Union summit, would agree with him about the speed of the process.
Libya: Gaddafi and the 'United States of Africa'
Throughout the conflict, rebels rejected government offers of a ceasefire and efforts by the African Union to end the fighting because the plans set forth did not include the removal of Gaddafi.

So...are you criticizing the new Libyans for not being as skilled as Qaddafi at making things look better than they are?
I remember nearly every nation in the Arab Middle East collapsing around that time, why don't all of those nations look the same? I'd like to suggest that Qaddafi was a master of deceit, skilled at creating the illusions you credit him with.
his death only exposed what he was hiding and Libyans today have to live with it.
Qaddafi's response to the Arab Spring in his country was the overreaction that laid the groundwork for his legendarily brutal demise.
His refusal or contractual inability to compromise was his own undoing and the cause of Libya today.
