The whole "evil Qaddafi" caricature was built around his speech against violent thugs who attempted to destabilize Benghazi. Notice that they still
claim that if
NATO didn't intervene, Qaddafi would have slaughtered Libyans, the key word being if
, meaning nothing of the sort
happened, and almost all the caricature build up revolved around that speech, most of what he said was twisted, like when he said that the violent
thugs were on drugs, he was talking about the way they were behaving, but the media twisted it and said Qaddafi is claiming that peaceful protesters
are on drugs.
They said he was using Mercenaries, that is still sticky in so many people's minds, but HRW investigated and found out that it clearly false. They
said he used Libyan air force to bomb the peaceful protesters, that was also false. They claimed he ordered to shoot peaceful protesters, that was
also false, in fact the opposite was true, security forces were ordered not to shoot, which explains why violent thugs managed to take over Benghazi
so quick, note, in the first day the violent thugs torched government buildings, attacked police and tried to get in Army bases, in that first day
more police were injured than the thugs, showing that the security forces were being liberal, too soft.
Also notice that approximately 700 prisoners were released by the Libyan government couple of months (calling it a fresh start) before the unrest
started, some of these prisoners were foreign collaborators who were connected to groups who were trained and financed by CIA, and their leader
operating from US (Colonel Haftar).
There is no doubt now that foreign elements were involved in the unrest from the beginning, and the Libyan government's stupidity allowed the
infiltration to take over Benghazi (because they thought the infiltrators were Libyans therefore talks would solve the problem), right after they took
over Benghazi they started attacking pro government supporters, infact in one incident Al-Jazeera showed a pro government protest, and pro government
protesters being shot at, but claimed that it was actually anti-government protesters who were being shot at.
Ultimately, within days the CIA trained and financed group was armed, France and Italy has admitted to that fact, within days they created a private
bank with Western bankers running it, and within days military commanders (advisers) were sent to command the CIA trained groups.
It looks like an organized and well planned out regime change operation, the problem is, there is no regime in Libya, the Libyan people run the
government, if you have noticed Libya has a unique government, Qaddafi doesn't play any role in that government, his son does, but he doesn't, the
people run the government, over 2000 councils, where people gather and get involved in governmental decisions.
