Some say he was a hero. Some say he was a monster. Others considered him a king. The real question however remains quite unanswered. Why did America get involved in Libya and not in Zimbabwe? Why did NATO bomb Libya and not North Sudan? Why was Gaddafi targetted and why was he assassinated?
Well, the truth is so distorted to the point where only the wicked knows the truth. However, as we all know, the wicked hates the truth and so tries to build mountains upon mountains of lies upon the truth. Most of us are like sheep without good shepherds and we just follow the wicked like Mary's little lambs.
When it comes to the story of Africa, there seems to be so many who pretend to know but the sad truth is that, they only know very little or nothing at all about Africa. Most of them fail miserably in covering Africa and it is because, most of them pretend to know more than they know. They fail because most of them pretend to know Africa more than even Africans. The so-called "African experts" who know a thing or two about Africa are often bought and paid for with money and sometimes with just cookies and cheese.
It is true Colonel Gaddafi is dead and gone but what people don't know is that, Gaddafi still lives on in words and in good deeds and that my friends, is not to say Gaddafi was a righteous man. Gaddafi wasn't a righteous man. In fact, Gaddafi did so many horrible things during his reign as the "King of Kings" of Africa. I personally don't often blame Gaddafi himself. Rather, I put the bigger blame on his immediate family members especially his sons who did far more barbaric things than the poor old Gaddafi. Yes Gaddafi did some barbaric things and in some ways, it makes sense to say Gaddafi was a wicked man. However, compared to bastards like Omar Al-Bashir of North Sudan and the criminal sons and daughters of death called politicians in Washington (America) who continue to destroy Africa, Gaddafi was a saint.
Do you know Africa is the richest continent in terms of Natural resources? Yes Africa is far richer than any other continent on earth in terms of natural resources. Also, do you know the richest countries in the world today in terms of natural resources are all poor third world countries? Yes the richest countries in the world today are nowhere near as rich as poor third world countries in terms of natural resources. Why is that so? Why is the richest continent on earth in terms of natural resources also the poorest continent on earth with millions of starving people? Why is it so that the richest countries on earth in terms of natural resources are all poor third world countries with millions of poverty-stricken people? Although the answer is no surprise at all, not so many people appear to know.
Our maker put us here not to suffer but to enjoy the fruits of the earth. If so then why do we suffer? We suffer because we are not ready to know what it takes to live on earth. We suffer because we are not ready to think for ourselves. We suffer because we have given up hope and have accepted defeat. We also suffer because of some selected group of people whose main aim is to kill and destroy the poor and the weak so they (the wicked) can stay on top forever. This group of wicked beings I am talking about did not start their operations yesterday. Rather, centuries upon centuries ago. They take over our lands and lives and manipulate us like robots and there seems to be very little we can do about it. Americans often refer to America as the "land of the freed" and "the home of the brave" which sounds quite funny to me at times. Why? Well, it is because, in my humble opinion, only the wicked is free in America and in a land where the wicked reigns supreme, the only brave innocent being is the dead one. The innocent are often reduce to nothing but slaves who continue to toil like robots just to feed the wicked rich. It is true sometimes we Africans dig our own graves making things easier for the wicked. However, that is just one side of the story. The other part of the story remains quite untold.
Some say Gaddafi was overthrown because he was oppressing the poor Libyans. Although I cannot disagree (especially considering what some of his immediate family members were doing to the poor Libyans), this is a little bit far from the main reason why Gaddafi was targetted. Some say America and NATO went to Libya just for the oil which makes perfect sense in some way. However, this is also a little bit far from the main reason why Gaddafi was murdered.
The first president of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, was very popular and loved all across Africa yet Dr. Nkrumah was assassinated in Africa. Why was Kwame Nkrumah assassinated? Not so many people appear to know the main reason why Dr. Nkrumah was assassinated. Although Africans loved Dr. Nkrumah the first president of Ghana so much, Kwame Nkrumah became the number one enemy of the western world. Why? Well, it is because he (Nkrumah) began talking about a "United Africa". A United Africa as we all know, would empower Africans to the point where Africa would be able to compete on the global scale. It would empower Africa to the point where Africa would be respected not just as another continent but as a partner on the global level. It would make our living conditions far better than those we find ourselves in today. It would break several land, economic, social, and political barriers for Africa and make us "free". However, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana was assassinated just when his idea of a "United Africa" was beginning to gain roots in Africa. Why did they assassinate such a great leader? They assassinated Kwame Nkrumah because the West doesn't want Africa to rise. Not just Africa but the third world in general. The higher we rise, the lower they fall so even as we work very hard to get ourselves out of this mess, the western world also works all day and night just to create even more mess for us.
Colonel Gaddafi just like Kwame Nkrumah had been talking about a United Africa for quite a long time but there wasn't an easy way to get rid of him. The western world was just waiting for an opportunity to strike. Just a couple of years ago, Gaddafi brought up a very smart idea. Gaddafi re-introduced the need for Africa as a continent to have a common currency (the Gold Dinar), a currency that would bind all Africa together as one and give us a voice at the global market in the sense that, this currency would compete with the Euro, the Dollar, etc. Right now, the west determines the market price of our gold, oil, diamonds, timber, and other natural resources. However, Gaddafi's common currency would give us a greater say at the international market to the point where we (Africans) would be able to determine the market price of our natural resources. This idea was such a great threat to the western world (especially America) so much so that, they wanted to get rid of Gaddafi as soon as possible (just like Americans did to Saddam Hussein when he talked openly about selling his oil in Euros instead of Dollars) and that explains why they (America and co) were more than ready to sponsor some armed groups to overthrow Gaddafi. NATO was busy bombing Libya not to save innocent people but to destroy the very idea of a better Africa and this my friends, is the truth
