Post-Gaddafi Libya: Sign that Syria-Iran should be left alone


by Joseph Earnest  September 12, 2012  


Newscast Media HOUSTON, TX—While Gaddafi referred to them as rats, the West embraced them as heroes and funded their cause.  They were viewed as freedom fighters. Rebels with a cause. To the West, there was a method to their madness. Yet for 42 years Col. Gaddafi had kept radical elements in check.  Gaddafi's Libya had the highest standard of living of any African or Arab country and most western countries. Libyans enjoyed free health care, free education, housing, electricity, and other utilities.


In his Green Book, Gaddafi stated: "Housing is an essential need for both the individual and the family and should not be owned by others. Living in another's house, whether paying rent or not, compromises freedom..."


"It is an undisputed fact that both man and woman are human beings. It follows, as a self-evident fact, that woman and man are equal as human beings.  Discrimination against woman by man is a flagrant act of oppression without justification, for woman eats and drinks as man eats and drinks; woman loves and hates as man loves and hates; woman thinks, learns and comprehends, as man thinks, learns and comprehends, " Gaddafi wrote about women in the Green Book.

This brutal dictator, as the West referred to him, who offered families $5,000 when a child was born, and up to $50,000 when a couple got married--built a country that was the envy of all its Arab neighbors. They rejoiced in his demise and it was in fact Arab news channels that played a major role in spreading propaganda to ensure Gaddafi's defeat.  He was indeed defeated, and elements of Al-Qaeda who fought against him and raised a black flag, took over Libya. Now Libya is Somalia v2.0.


CNN warned in the article 'Don't celebrate Libya just yet,' by quoting Polish poet Stanislaw Lec who once put it, "When you jump for joy, beware that no one moves the ground from beneath your feet."


The murder of American ambassador Christopher Stevens, by the very elements the West funded and helped seize power from the once-orderly Libya, should make the West cautious about replacing already-stable governments like Syria and Iran.


Of course out of fear of blow-back and the desire to continue enjoying US-Libya relations and billions of dollars in foreign donations former Gaddafi loyalists are likely to be blamed for the incidents that have happened.  No one will want to take responsibility and will continue to play the West like a fiddle in order to secure funding from hardworking American taxpayers' money.


Both Syria's Assad and Iran's Ahmadinejad have contained the radical elements within their countries.  The West continues to fund Islamic elements some of whom are Al-Qaeda, in an effort to overthrow the Syrian government and eventually Iran.  The problems Muslims have with one another should be left to Muslims to solve without the interference of the West, because quite frankly, they will never embrace the western worldview.  One group views the other as infidels while the other sees its opponents as heretics.  The only common ground that both groups (East and West) have exists through trade and commerce relationships.


Libya was a debt-free country and had its own central bank. Gaddafi's crime was wanting to form a United States of Africa and abandoning the U.S. dollar for gold.  He urged Arab and African countries to forsake other currencies and establish a single currency called the Gold Dinar. After his ousting, the country has become a wasteland of continuous fighting and terrorist attacks from within. (pop-up)


Is it worth destabilizing countries in the name of exporting western democracy and endangering the lives of public servants and tourists, under new regimes that don't embrace such a democracy?     Add Comments>>
