This was said at the start of the "uprising" and years ago when Gaddafi was becoming more pro western, relatively speaking, it was also mentioned
that Libya was having an internal struggle of sorts with Islamic extremists for years prior to this. I belive now, what I believed at the start and
what I believed when Blair was being all friendly with Gaddafi, I believe that Gaddafi thought that the West would help should the situation spiral.
The West did help, but not help him. Gaddafi was exporting oil to Europe, no problem, he was becoming relatively diplomatic to the outside, where
Gaddafi went wrong was refusing to establish central bank control in Libya and so all of Libya's wealth stayed within its borders...Since he stopped
supporting terrorism anyway, which I honestly believe he had done. However, his refusal to hand over the economy was his death warrant. There are
other factors, wanting to unite Africa as a single union for one (which could not work now anyway), but on the whole they took a back seat.
Within his own borders, Gaddafi neglected tribes that he felt could not be trusted and simply looked after the main/bigger tribes. This set the
conditions needed for external forces to set the motions of an uprising. I don't care what anyone says, this uprising was nothing at the start and I
honestly believe had the UN not been involved, it would've been smashed. The media tried to show it as a split, it was more like 80/20 against the
uprising! However, with the two main factors already set, Gaddafi had little support from the outside and history always shows is that these
countries, for all their faults, need Western support, once they lose that, the ruling party is on borrowed time. The media propaganda machine was
rolling, UN bombing and numbers entering Libya to fight against Gaddafi increasing as well as those in fear of the advance quickly shifting to the
I said at the start and I will say it again and again. Libyans will curse the day that this happened. For all Gaddafi's faults, Libya was one if not
the best place to live in Africa, one of the strongest countries, one of the richest and for the most part its citizens were helped more so than
certainly the British government help their own people.
Gaddafi's murder in such a publicly degrading fashion shows exactly what Libyans can expect from now on. The murder of countless of his supporters
adds to this. War is war, but to kill supporters who had all indications of surrendering is not an act supported in war, it is just senseless murder!
This is all the prelude of post-Gaddafi Libya. The country, as I said before, will become like Afghanistan and far worse off than it is now. With this
mob, whoever they are, in charge of the country and with massive wealth in their control, who knows where money will be pumped. Iran? Syria?
Palestinians? Nuclear weapons? Bio-weapons?
This to me is an absolute disaster, for Libya and the whole region!
