Was Gaddafi an evil dictator or was he a good leader who should not have been overthrown?
We have all heard from the media that Gaddafi was a terrible dictator and hated by the Libyan people. However if you have a look on YouTube, you will see that many Libyan people actually liked Gaddafi.
In 1951 Libya was the poorest country in the world. Gaddafi turned Libya around to make it have the highest standard of living in Africa. The standard of living in Libya was higher than what we have in the UK and many other European countries.
Before Gaddafi took over Libya in 1969, Libya was being robbed of it's wealth by western powers. Gaddafi took over the country and started to share the wealth of the country with Libyans.
Here is a quote from Henry Kissinger, "Oil is much too important a commodity to be left in the hands of the Arabs".
Could the oil in Libya be the reason why western powers over threw his government? In order to get support from governments and people of a nation, the media needed to make out the man was a monster. I'm sure he had faults, he wasn't perfect, but do you think western powers would have wanted to overthrow his government if the main export of the country was "potatoes"? Libya has oil, gold and diamonds.
Watch the videos below. Do your own research and make up your own mind. Our media, especially the BBC give us a lot of biased news to support the agenda of the richest people in the world who benefit from war. It is they, the global elite who want war. It is they who benefit from war. Selling weapons to governments, lending money to governments, sending supplies of food to soldiers, stealing oil, diamonds, and gold, etc.
Malcolm X once wisely said: "The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses."
