Newly disclosed emails show that Libya’s plan to create a gold-backed currency to compete with the euro and dollar was a motive for NATO’s intervention.

A March 27, 2011, intelligence brief [archived here] on Libya, sent by long time close adviser to the Clintons and Hillary’s unofficial intelligence gatherer, Sidney Blumenthal, contains clear evidence of war crimes on the  part of NATO-backed rebels. Citing a rebel commander source “speaking in strict confidence” Blumenthal reports to Hillary [emphasis mine]:

Under attack from allied Air and Naval forces, the Libyan Army troops have begun to desert to the rebel side in increasing numbers. The rebels are making an effort to greet these troops as fellow Libyans, in an effort to encourage additional defections.

It is always about the money. Always.

This country could care less about freedom and human rights.

Including our own.

No laws passed for over 40 years that favor the majority of citizens, the stripping of human rights as a result of the USAPatriot Act, the increase living in poverty, the decline in academic ranking among other nations, the total destruction of the election system where people cannot be sure their vote is counted as they intended, and one could go on.

In short, the United States is everything we accuse those nations of making the case to illegally invade in another regime-change war.

There's another reason Gaddafi had to go. Like Chavez, he used Libya's oil revenue to provide for the Libyan people. One of his major infrastructure efforts was building desalination plants along the Mediterranean coast to provide fresh water for agriculture. During that time, it was possible to keep track of the expansion, and scope of local farming by satellite imagery on Google Earth, which is likely one reason GE, and its data detail have gone away. Plus, unlike Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi built no palaces for himself. He preferred living in a traditional tent that could be broken down, folded up, and moved almost at a moment's notice, as much for security reasons as to keep in touch with the Libyan people. And it is true that his efforts to establish a pan-African currency were gaining traction with other African nations with considerable oil revenue. This terrified the fossil fuel oligarchs, as well as the IMF and the World Bank, whose power lies in the dollar as the world's reserve currency, based in its use as the determining factor in the price of oil. And, just like Hussein, Gaddafi sought to trade his oil with other countries, not through the established bourses at the price in dollars, but in gold. And now, that has emboldened Iran, Russia and China to trade their oil resources independent of the US, and the dollar. No wonder Gaddafi had to go. Incidentally - if you look at northern Libya now, via the available satellite imagery, almost all of that agricultural development is gone, destroyed by the bombing and general war destruction of NATO.

This country never met a dictator it didn't love, or a good person it didn't want to kill. And it's been that way for a lot longer than the current bozo in the White House.
