Reconstruction of New Libya.
No rebel soldier will give up on his arms, but there is a better way to make it so.
Enlist every rebel soldier between 16-46 into a National Defence Army with salarles. They will need the money. Train them up, organise them and teach
them responsibilities for a period of 6 mths.
Then retain the best as a regular army while demobolizing the rest into a civilian reserve army, allowing them to keep their arms. With training and
responsibilities entrusted to them, they will less itchy to use such arms to resolve personal conflicts, in the manner of the Swiss Army model.
For those whom had not take part in arms struggle, mobilize them to form construction brigages and use as little foreign labour or foreign companies
as possible. Every Libyan needs money for upkeep, The Libyan economy begins today and cannot allow its wealth to flow out. By using local labour,
money will circulate and will slowly grow the economy.
Homes, schools, and economic assets such as roads, power supply, water, etc will be the main priorities to get the economy rolling, creating necessary
jobs along the way, so that there will be less friction in the new republic.
No money should be spend on useless ' white elephant' monuments. The new nation cannot afford it, except perhaps for one simple but vital monument as
thanksgiving to the Almighty for liberation, a reminder of the thousands whom sacrificed their lives for freedom and a tribute to the unity of all
libyan tribes that made it possible to topple dictatorship.
THe reason why it is vital is because it will be a monument to remind every tribe,every libyan and every generation of its critical unity and
sacrifices that led to freedom for all, so that for anyone else whom start to behave differently, seeking for seccession, will look upon that
momument, the blood of thousands before he and his followers start to spill others blood once more.
Corruption is the scourge of all nations. When one takes a bribe, another will want it too and soon the entire nation lives only on and for
corruption, causing its eventual doom for corruption progresses nothing and no one.
Thus the new Libya must set it straight from the start. Set up an anti corruption unit with powers and answering only to the judiciary. Then every gov
legislator or employee, from the President to the new recruit policeman, must declare they and their families assets at the start of employment.
Should they be unable to account for extraordinary funds in their accounts or have undeclared assets, it will be seized,. placed in the treasury and
defendents given a fair trial.
There is enough wealth in the nation to be shared and distributed equally by all libyans, coupled with rule of law now. WIth fair wealth distributed
and rule of law where all are equal in the eyes of the Almighty and man, the impetus for corruption will be much lessened.
Libya stands now at this moment in time of a chance to rebuild itself into a great nation and democratic role model by its great blood sacrifice and
struggle, for democratic Middle east and those whom seek for democracy and freedom, and contribute to greater humanity.
May they not falter or lack the courage and conviction to forge for itself a greater inspiration to its future generation, Libya unity and mankind as
