It does make a lot of sense if Gaddafi was trying to unite Africa under a common gold backed currency and take on the global banking cartel with their fiat fraud. The fact that the Arab League was opposed to the idea and are currently backing the no fly zone is painting them as western puppets in the region. I could very much understand the fear an African Union would pose to the west as there would be a lot more oversight and power to limit the international looting going on, divided they fall.

There would have to be quite a few articles around if Gaddafi was taking steps to an united Africa. I have had a quick look, but any more information around to support this theory?

Check your dates, friend.

That Reuters bit was from 2009 :/...hardly a "recently became" scenario.

Yes, that is when he first go into the position. Now that he has been there a while he has had time to develop his policies, policies that take time to negotiate and implement. Policies that threaten the international banking cartels. Such things do not happen over night, now that he is getting close to finalising it some people are getting threatened and want to go all JFK on him for putting some integrity back into the financial system.

Looking into it a bit more and Gaddafi did lose his role as chairman in Jan 2010. He still would have held a strong role and influence within the organisation. Currently, the African Union does still back Gaffafi, www.allvoices.com...

I am not sure about the gold dinar, but to shamelessly cut and paste from a different thread


African Monetary Fund, African Central Bank, African Investment Bank The US$30 billion frozen by Mr Obama belong to the Libyan Central Bank and had been earmarked as the Libyan contribution to three key projects which would add the finishing touches to the African federation – the African Investment Bank in Syrte, Libya, the establishment in 2011 of the African Monetary Fund to be based in Yaounde with a US$42 billion capital fund and the Abuja-based African Central Bank in Nigeria which when it starts printing African money will ring the death knell for the CFA franc through which Paris has been able to maintain its hold on some African countries for the last fifty years. It is easy to understand the French wrath against Gaddafi.

He wasn't 'getting close to finalizing it'. In fact, the article you posted as evidence clearly states that many within the African Union do not agree with his ideas of a "United States of Africa" whatsoever.

And what 'integrity'? He just wants to consolidate power in his own hands.

There are a lot of articles and things Gaddafi failed on in relation to his attempts to unify Africa. A common African currency is one that was making progress. As for integrity, Gaddafi would not own all the money
It was looking to be be a gold backed currency. Not the debt backed stuff we have in the west full of toxic assets and junk bonds. This is where I see Gaddafi being a threat to the west and the reason for the campaign against him.

Yes, but my point is there is no evidence to show he was ANYWHERE near a completion of that vision. Mainly because he didnt have agreement amongst OTHER AFRICANS. The UN wouldn't need to take him out for that reason, because it wasn't actually happening.

Zimbabwe is currently making moves towards a gold backed currency and so far no international invasion so you may have a point, time will tell in how this plays out. Trying to get all of Africa to agree on anything is a very lengthy process but there where quite a few countries ready to get on board with a standard African Currency.

The other important economic front with Libya and the international community is with its move away from the petro dollar in oil trading. China and Russia have already taken steps to drop the USD in the oil trade as the American economy is drowning in debt and unresolved corruption. As more countries make this move the US economy will weaken further so there is incentive for invasion there.

With the Rebels setting up there own bank within the first week or two of the skirmishes is clear evidence that there is an international economic component to this conflict. For a loose band of dissenters to be more concerned about getting 4% interest PA on their savings while the bullets are still flying does not add up in how the media is painting this conflict.

While I agree that the rebels having their own 'bank' is very suspicious, the way you characterize the functions of that bank in the above quote is wildly inaccurate.

Yes, I was being sarcastic. My bad. The actual functions of the bank appears to be with facilitating the oil trade. The Rebels have captured the east part of Libya, where most of the oil production and shipping occurs. The establishment of this bank takes the Gaddafi government out of the loop in maintaining oil production.

I think America should stay out of Libya's affairs.
