The truth is so distorted to the point where only the wicked know the truth. However, as we all know, the wicked hate the truth and so try to bury the truth deep within mountains upon mountains of lies. Most of us are like sheep without good shepherds and we just follow the wicked like Mary's little lambs. The wicked always paint the good evil and the evil good making it very hard for some of us to distinguish between the two. They (the wicked people) always paint themselves so righteous to the point where most of them appear angels making it very difficult for the innocent to distinguish between the angels of God and the wicked.
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 always fail at the end of the day.
They fail 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 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 bad things during his reign as the "King of Kings" of Africa. I often don't blame Gaddafi but rather his immediate family members especially his sons who did far more barbaric things than the poor old Gaddafi. So in some way, 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 hungry people? Although the answer is no surprise at all, not so many people appear to know. It makes no sense to blame the devil because the devil has done nothing wrong in this case. In fact, compared to some I know, the devil retired long time ago from public service.
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 of a 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 operation yesterday but 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 very funny at times because in my opinion, only the wicked is free in America and in a land where the wicked reign supreme, the only brave innocent being is the dead one. The innocent are often reduce to nothing but slaves who continue to work like robots just to feed the wicked rich. It is true sometimes we Africans dig our own graves making things quite easier for the silent killers who would love to hate the scent of rotten bodies surrounding them. However, that is just one side of the story.
Some say Gaddafi was overthrown because he was oppressing the poor Libyans. Although I cannot disagree with this (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 murdered. 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 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 idea of a better Africa and that my friends, is the truth
