J sent this as a comment to my last post about Libya. I think it deserves post status. I
The following is designed to generate further discussion regarding a post-Qaddafi Libya. There are now questions being raised by 'many' regarding the war in Libya:
1. 'Why' was Qaddafi overthrown, especially when some say/allege that he worked in his people's best interests. a. 1951, Libya was the poorest nation in the world. b. Before the NATO invasion, Libyans enjoyed the highest standard of living in the entirety of Africa. A standard of living that was even ahead of Russia, Brazil, & Saudi Arabia. c. In Qaddafi Libya, homes were considered a 'human right'. d. Newly married Libyan couples received $50,000 from the Qaddafi government to buy their own home. e. Electricity under the Qaddafi government was 'free' to 'everyone'. f. Qaddafi personally vowed to house 'every' Libyan before his own parents. Qaddafi kept that promise to his people, his own father died before he was able to be housed. g. 'Before' Qaddafi, only 1/5th of Libyans were literate. Under Qaddafi, Libyan education was free and considered high quality when measured against Western education standards. The literacy rate under Qaddafi rose to 83%. h. Under Qaddafi, Libya's healthcare was free and high quality when measured against modern healthcare standards. i. If Libyans could not find the healthcare or education they needed in Libya, then the Libyan Government of Qaddafi 'funded them' to 'go abroad' and access it. j. Under Qaddafi ALL loans were 'interest free' a.k.a. 0%, this was 'by law'. k. If a Libyan went to buy a car, the Qaddafi Government paid for 50% of its price, while the Libyan paid the remaining 50%. l. In Qaddafi Libya, the price of gasoline was $0.14/gallon. m. Any Libyan wishing to become a farmer was given 'free use' of -- 1. land; 2. a home; 3. farming equipment; 4. livestock & seeds.
2. On July 1, 2011, 1.7 Million Libyans assembled in Green Square Tripoli to SHOW DEFIANCE AGAINST THE NATO BOMBING OF LIBYA. Which represented around 95% of the total population of Tripoli, which is roughly 1/3rd of the entire population of Libya. a. Under Qaddafi, the Libyan State Bank was state owned, and UNLIKE ALL of our Western banks, is not owned in some way or another by the British Crown's Financial Husbandry a.k.a. The Rothschild's Family/City of London, and all money that was issued by the Libyan bank under Qaddafi was 'debt free'.
3. Qaddafi worked to have payment for Libyan oil moved away from the U.S. Dollar to the Gold African Dinar. When this transpired, the head of France, Mr. Sarkozy then called Libya's threatened financial move a threat to the financial security of Mankind. 4. One of the NATO backed Libyan rebels' first acts was to create a new central bank which like other Western Banks are owned by the British Crown's Financial Husbandry a.k.a. The Rothschild's Family/City of London. The British Crown's Financial Husbandry the Rothschild Family is estimated to own over 1/2 of the World's wealth. It is alleged on a constant basis, that the banks owned by the Rothschilds create money out of thin air and sell it to people with interest. In other words, one never has enough money to pay back what is 'owed'. This in turn creates debt slaves of said banking interests. Can we in the West, can those whose nations comprise NATO, nations which leaders are well known names like Sarkozy, Obama, Cameron, et al. claim such accomplishments on behalf of their own people? During Qaddafi's rein, Libya was DEBT FREE. Will the subsequent post-Qaddafi Libya say the same? Now let's examine 'who' is behind the NATO bombing of a 'sovereign' DEBT FREE nation. Many say that Libyans under Qaddafi had things that citizens of the U.K., EU, and our U.S. did not enjoy, leaderships working in their citizenry's best interests versus the interests of the Banking/Corporate/Transnational Corporatism entities. Libyans shared their nation's wealth, and were not under the bondage and shackles of usury or British Crown banking interests. Imagine without their issuance of money the British Crown's Financial Husbandry couldn't control so many lives, what is now poor to average could live as wealthy people. So to the question -- does NATO and it comprising makeup, are they controlled by unethical bankers and rent-a-wreck politicians? Who was/is/are the real free person/persons, NATO/Western citizenries or Qaddafi Libyans? I doubt that many have taken the time to read Qaddafi's 'Green Book' where he believes in 'direct democracy'. Qaddafi believes that parliamentary democracies are inherently corrupt, and that people can & should represent themselves. With all this, I ask the question -- Why was Qaddafi demonized and subsequently destroyed by NATO/Western Governments? Many that were under investigation by the Anti-Corruption Investigation unit of the Qaddafi Government, are now the very same ones leading the Libyan Rebels.
