One of Moamar Gaddafi's former ministers has predicted the Libyan leader will follow in Adolf Hitler's footsteps and commit suicide rather than give up power.
Mustapha Abdeljalil, justice minister until he quit over the bloody crackdown on protesters, says he expects Mr Gaddafi to make good on his pledge to die on Libyan soil rather than slink into exile.
"Gaddafi's time is up. He is going to go like Hitler. He is going to commit suicide," Mr Abdeljalil told Swedish media.
Peace and the Third World War
"Indeed, what truly happens is that wars have never been fought for ideologies; wars have always occurred due to commercial matters. The populaces, the middle classes, are not the ones who invent the wars; this has always been done by the economic industries of the powerful ones; therefore, wars are due to commercial problems. Yes, the powerful ones invent the wars. It is painful to see the wretched populaces being deceived by the monopoly-party of the powerful ones. Those gentlemen make the populace believe that they must fight on behalf of their “threatened mother country,” religion, on behalf of democracy, for the cause of the proletariat, etc., etc., etc. Thus, this is how the deceived populaces go to the slaughter house; that is all.
"Even the medieval wars, the Crusades, were wars for the commerce of spices; that was all. The powerful monopoly-parties deceived the populaces, making them think that they should fight against the Moors for the conquest of the Holy Sepulcher, for the Holy Land, for Christianity, etc. All of that was a deceit. The purpose of that war was the trade of spices; at that time, the European capitalists were interested in acquiring absolute control of all the spice markets...."
"...it is very true that the populaces are the extension of the individual. Thus the evil, the egotism, the root of war, is within the individual; while the individual continues with their egotism, their ambitions, their hatred, their greed, inevitably the populaces will be likewise. So, the populaces will create their powerful leaders, their powerful heads, which will take them like oxen to the slaughter house, and that is all."
– Samael Aun Weor
McWhorter articulates three main objections to victimology: First, victimology condones weakness in failure. Victimology tacitly stamps approval on failure, lack of effort, and criminality. Behaviors and patterns that are self-destructive are often approved of as cultural or presented as unpreventable consequences from previous systemic patterns. Black Liberation theologians are clear on this point: "People are poor because they are victims of others," says Dr. Dwight Hopkins, a Black Liberation theologian teaching at the University of Chicago Divinity School.
Second, victimology hampers progress because, from the outset, it focuses attention on obstacles. For example, in Black liberation Theology, the focus is on the impediment of black freedom in light of the Goliath of white racism.
Third, victimology keeps racism alive because many whites are constantly painted as racist with no evidence provided. Racism charges create a context for backlash and resentment fueling new attitudes among whites not previously held or articulated, and creates "separatism" -- a suspension of moral judgment in the name of racial solidarity. Does Jeremiah Wright foster separatism or racial unity and reconciliation?
One of the pillars of Obama's home church, Trinity United Church of Christ, is "economic parity." On the website, Trinity claims that God is not pleased with "America's economic mal-distribution." Among all of controversial comments by Jeremiah Wright, the idea of massive wealth redistribution is the most alarming. The code language "economic parity" and references to "mal-distribution" is nothing more than channeling the twisted economic views of Karl Marx. Black Liberation theologians have explicitly stated a preference for Marxism as an ethical framework for the black church because Marxist thought is predicated on a system of oppressor class (whites) versus victim class (blacks).

Yes, I just heard some MSM on the radio say yesterday that he has given us any intel that he had on Al Quaeda since 9-11. He has been blaming his recent woes on them also.
