CNN, NY Times et al. have never reported that Libya, as opposed to desperately poor Egypt and Yemen, had been enjoying a higher standard of living than nine European nations including Russia. Rather, they continued emphasizing Western media concocted misnomer 'Arab Spring' and long term condemnation of Gaddafi over his entire four decades of leadership of Libya and funding the movement for African Union as it Chairman.

For almost as long as Cuba's Fidel Castro, Gaddafi had been slandered in the world's monolithic corporate powerful daily news media by innuendo and lies denigrating Gaddafi ever since 1969, when he led the bloodless revolution that replaced a British imposed King with a solid Arab socialist government. Using revenue from the oil that had been previously stolen by Britten and France, Gaddafi brought Libya up from the poorest to the most prosperous nation in Africa, and was building the largest Aquifer ever created. A great underground river was bringing water to Benghazi and greening the desert, https://anonhq.com/investigative-great-man-made-river-gaddafi-happened/ , until NATO bombs fell. click here

Gaddafi had revived Nkruma's African Union and was funding organizations that were fighting against the genocidal machinations of continuing European exploitation of Africa through financing tribal strife as the colonial powers have always done. Gaddafi was blocking US military's AFRICON penetration in North Africa. Highly dangerous for the US and European establishment, Libya had begun minting part of the 44 billion US$ in gold held in Libya's State Bank, threatening the US dollar as world currency.

Gaddafi, whose position officially was Defender of the Revolution, had made himself a greater target of assassination and vilification than Fidel Castro was for the speculative investors in neocolonial plundering who dominate the planet. In addition, Gaddafi, by his recent apology to African leaders on behalf of Arab nations for past Arab involvement in the African slave trade had infuriated extremists in neighboring Arab nations tightly allied with, and serving the foreign policy of Western powers.

Controlled media ridiculed Gaddafi, when he spoke as Chairman of the African Union in his 2009 address to the UN General Assembly. Gaddafi was the first and only delegate to ever to call for investigation of the UN itself for its role in the horrific loss of lives in Palestine and Korea. He demanded that besides those in Vietnam, Iraq, all bombings, invasions and occupations by US NATO forces must be investigated to seek justice and compensation for victims and survivors. Gaddafi bitterly explained the UN Charter's provisions were all negated by the domination of a 'Council of Terror' (Security Council) controlled by the Colonial Powers.

After forty years of building up Gaddafi as a villain and hateful brutal dictator worth assassination even at the cost of a hundred innocent Libyans as in President Reagan's ordered criminal 1988 airstrike, an abysmally uneducated and diseducated American public and its propagandized allied citizens in Europe, were ready to believe whatever infantile lies US criminal media drummed up.

America's CIA fed war establishment media had had little difficulty getting public opinion to accept their pinning the bombing of a Pan Am passenger plane on him. The world satellite audience of a CNN-New York Times led media cartel would never question the absurdity that a successful leader of a revolution that had saved tens of thousand of lives in bringing his once colonially impoverished people to have the best living standard in Africa, could have possibly have had an motive to order the mass murder of a plane load of innocent human beings. Gadaffi, in an unfortunate rush to see lifted the sanctions unjustly put Libyan oil for an unproven accusation, showed an amazing willingness to trust a Western court in an setup arena. The trial, according to the most highly placed legal authorities observing, was a travesty of justice. See [The case remains unsolved, as the man convicted died before his second appeal came up.

Though the 2008 Humanitarian U.S.-Libya Comprehensive Claims Settlement Agreement contributed to by American companies in Libya, unequivocally stated that "this agreement is being pursued on a purely humanitarian basis and does not constitute an admission of fault by either party," Western media easily brought most viewers around the world to believe to the contrary that Gaddafi had admitted bombing the plane.

BACKDROP OF EVENTS PRIOR TO FEBRUARY 2011 IN LIBYA:

In Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Bahrain tens of thousands had protested against Western backed dictators, and hundreds had died. In each county all the deaths were attributed to police, security or government armed forces in daily accounts from the very first days of protests. Yet no armed rebellion took place. And of course there was no sudden benevolent American interest in the dying in countries under Western banking oppression. We have seen video shots of cadre of the protestors in action in these US controlled poor countries with repressive governments maintaining calm and keeping their people nonviolent. Even after terrible loss of life they continued to prevent violence against the government.

Two infamous U.S. backed dictators had already been ousted peacefully while many protestors were murdered. In Yemen snipers continued to kill protesters, the huge demonstrations causing worry in Washington. Mass protests in Bahrain were threatening the home of the U.S. Sixth Fleet.

Then in mid February, the empire struck back with clever vengeance as armed insurgents suddenly appeared in prosperous socialist Libya amid a CNN and Al Jezeera media campaign of disinformation, distortion and preposterous lies of large peaceful protests, with Human Rights Watch blowing CNN undocumented false reports up to grand and horrific proportions. As over and over again in the past, never mind that it was the same CNN that since its inception has hailed Americans who killed millions of poor Asians and Latin Americans as wonderful heroes protecting people. As CNN reports fit Western media inculcated prejudices, they are hailed as truth.

The colonial powers had sprung the surprise beginning of what will go down in history as one of the greatest feats of media mind control of childishly gullible, blindly self-indulgent, malleable Western public and a status quo obedient diplomatic corp, both empty of any sense of responsibility and therefore dangerous to themselves and the rest of humanity.

Following a well prepared surprise military attack planned by a CIA funded exile group in London officered by Libyans long resided near CIA headquarters near Washington, and using past al Qaida and other veterans of US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the citizenry of Benghazi was made to look as rebelling by CIA-fed CNN and Al Jazeera 24 hour news coverage.

Coordinated gangs with heavy weapons occupied the centers of cities, then as they were almost immediately being rolled back and out of the towns recaptured by Libyan police, army and militias, liberating them from rebel occupation, US, UK and France pressured the UN Security Council for permission to bomb Libya to protect these gangs (propagandized as innocent peaceful protestors) from defeat. Meanwhile, Bahrain, at the same time, was being invaded by U.S. ally Saudi Arabia, its Armed Forces repressing demonstrators and assisting in their persecution, all well covered by media and well documented with filmed reports, but without outcry in Western media.

Despite the obviousness of the conclusion of White folks crimes against humanity, Jay Gould might characterize this as historical contingency. The breadth and scope of human malfeasance is just that...human. The fact that whites went all out in conquest at a critical time in human history when no other nonwhite had perfected such an onslaught at scale is the contingency for where we are now.

It seems to me, that is the human mind that must decide whether human stewards this beautiful planet will rise to become aspirational or fall taking the entire bios down.

Just as the chief Volgon, Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy ordered its authorities upon hearing lies from earthling stowaways about how sensitive and wanting to be loved Volgons are, consequently ordered: "Throw them off the Ship" in this case a space ship... so must human earthlings act by throwing the lying, thieving, murdering oligarchs off the Earth...no spacesuit, nothing - just a monumental heave ho into the void.

The Socialist tyrant had to go before people in the USA got wind of how well off the people of Libya were treated and the UN played a part in his demise. The audacity of the horrible dictator Gaddafi actually using natural resources belonging to the country, and hence the population, to benefit the people rather than a select few corporations.

We must thank Obama, Hillary, and the UN for making it so much better in Libya.

Wait! Should they be thanked or tried for crimes against humanity? I think the latter.

It doesn't hurt to be reminded of all the things many of us knew when all of this unfolded. Greed and evil on an unimaginable scale took place. These were crimes against humanity and they will never be punished, they never are.
