Muammar Gaddafi Owner: Jay Janson at opednews.com/author/author1723.html License: License Unknown by Jay Janson
NATO has murdered the son and grandchildren of the leader of Socialist Libya, a former colony of imperialist nations that are now bombing a Libya that had risen to giving its citizens a higher standard than nine European nations including Russia - far and away #1 in Africa with free health care and free higher education.(1)
Why target Gaddafi?
Gaddafi is the foremost leader of the movement for a United Africa to free the continent of European economic exploitation.
Gaddafi had frightened the private investment financial capital speculators with his minting of gold dinars to use instead of dollars and euros, undermining the central banking system that corporatocracy uses it to plunder the planet. Libya's bank is 100% state owned and is estimated by the IMF to have 144 tons of gold in its vaults.(2)
Gaddafi is seen as blocking the penetrating efforts of the US Africa Command, praised this month by members of congress for leading the opening days of the Libyan military campaign.
Gaddafi had been favoring China as a customer for Libya's vast oil reserves, and recently raising the price on the giant Western petroleum companies operating in Libya.
Gaddafi is also the most prominent critic of US use of the Security Council to approve and aid its wars and foreign policy against multiple Muslim nations. Gaddafi, addressing the UN General Assembly said it should be called the "Terror Council"
Is Gaddafi targeted for assassination in order to protect the Libyan citizenry?
The reader can decide.
After all the corporate owned media cartel decades of war propaganda, preposterous lies, disinformation, blackouts of news unfavorable to the U.S before, during and after past U.S. invasions and bombings of Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Lebanon, Dominican Republic, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan, Iran, Cuba and Grenada, any TV viewer who believes CNN and the rest of the corporate owned media, that these wild heavily armed men (CNN newscasters standing beside their pickup trucks with mounted cannons cheering the rebels for democracy on) were ever peaceful protesters and democrats, and have never killed anyone except the government soldiers and militias who are targeting civilians, should have his or her head examined.
The murder of the children of Libya's revolutionary leader was bracketed in time by the Royal Wedding the day before and White House Correspondents Dinner the evening of the afternoon of the sudden forced departure of Gaddafi's son and grandchildren from the living (most assuredly along with quite a few of their countrymen who died in the cross fire or in the cross hairs of other warplanes on the same day during a civil war surely well orchestrated by agents covertly operating for overseas interests.
The Royal Wedding showed off pomp and pride in the military style of the British Empire. This viewer couldn't find a single nonwhite face in the crowd or participants in the hours long ceremony covered on TV. Yet the brutally conquered and exploited subjects of the English Kings and Queens ( one in six of all people on Earth at the time of this author "s birth ) were almost entirely nonwhite subjects.
Was it a missile fired from a Royal Air Force plane that was meant to kill Gaddafi? Or was it a French plane taking of from and Italian air field? What's the difference? All three imperialist nations had once militarily occupied what is today Libya. (Italy alone murdering a million in what was Tripoli and Cyrenaica.)
At the festive White House Correspondents Dinner as the TV camera panned the prestigious guests reminded of the British event as flags paraded in the hall to the sound of martial music and marching feet.
The Anglo-American empire that replaced the British one in dominating the world is also part if not boss of NATO. Could it have been an American pilot with orders to target Gaddafi as Ronald Reagan once ordered in 1953, killing instead a hundred Libyans and Gaddafi's little daughter. Is it possible that this time, the targeting of Gaddafi was agreed to by a half-black American President, who for not being white continues to fool the nonwhite majority of humanity living in the formerly occupied third world into hoping Obama will be able to opt for less killing and stealing than his white predecessors.
In any case the result of both failed assassination attempts in Africa by predatory nations was the same: Gaddafi family death, among others. Meanwhile the movements of the Royal newlyweds the day after the wedding, Obama's joking at the Correspondents Dinner and the beatification of a Pope who was no friend of Catholic revolutionaries in the exploited third world was of greater interest except in the vast world populated by nonwhite Earthlings.
In last year's 2010 United Nation Human Development Yearly Index of all Nations,
Libya is ranked 53rd in the world, well above nine European nations, for example, Russia, which is ranked 65th.
