Libya Turmoil 69
To the 3 stooges and their media supporters.
Some basic truths are left to be said:
When I met the main reporters and journalists in the beginning of my last trip to Tripoli I thought they were basically liars. Not having had the need of ever meeting them before, and not really interested in meeting them before, I thought they had the same kind of knowledge I had. Not so, big mistake. The new type of intelligence gathering by the big media by flashing in a country and flashing out again, and copying each other obscures the real backgrounds of the news. Soundbites and textbites is the name of the game.
Meanwhile I am aware that the top-class reporters are very intelligent people, who, given half a chance, would be marvelous sources of information if only they had the time to study their subjects.
In Libya the main subject to study are the tribes.
When Moammar Gaddafi told BBC reporter Jeremy Bowen repeatedly ”No you don’t understand the system here, no don’t say that, you don’t understand the system” it looked like Gaddafi was a stubborn idiot who insisted on belittling his interviewer, that’s how it was broadcasted without any explanations.
Except that privately the reporter admitted afterwards that Gaddafi was probably right, the reporter didn’t know the system. Meanwhile the reporter had been confronted time after time with the fact that all predictions crumbled like houses of cards.
Even the inhuman and criminal bombardments, inclusive with depleted uranium which will make the whole population for square miles around the impact zone sick with radiation sickness., launched for internal electioneering reasons in the 3 countries of the 3 stooges, couldn’t make a dent in the conviction and fortitude of the Gaddafi regime.
All the calls for Gaddafi to give up, surrender, disappear, go to his mother or commit suicide to satisfy the appetite for a quick victory of the 3 stooges were in vain, Gaddafi didn’t budge. All the media lies in the world didn’t even shake him.
The difference is that Gaddafi knows his country and his people, he knows the tribes he is dealing with successfully since 42 years and those tribes know that Gaddafi is no fool and won’t budge until his last breadth.
And there comes the biggest surprise, the tribes see a man, a man who is organizing and reorganizing their lives since 42 years, trying to bring them, in his own unique way, into the 21st century. A man who has only one word, a Libyan word for Libyan people:”I unified you, I gave you a country, I made you wealthy beyond your dreams, I did this against the assembled vultures of the whole world without bending and without accepting their anti-Libyan poisoned gifts. I controlled the rapacious oil majors and obliged them to accept our rules and laws without taking bribes and I had only the unity and prosperity of the Libyan people in my mind.
Since Libya was never a really unified country before I had to break all resistance coming from all angles to safeguard the unity of the country.”
This would be the discourse of Gaddafi if he thought it would be important for the world to know it.
But Gaddafi knows that the political leaders of this world wouldn’t even listen to his discourse, they wouldn’t even read one letter of his discourse if it would be presented to them.
The Western leaders are so impregnated with their basic Marxist indoctrination of a world government and a world police force that they totally ignore the centrifugal forces in Asia, Africa and at a later stage South-Anerica.
Gaddafi, an avid reader of history and philosophy, has seen the collapsing colonial structure of Africa and he is convinced that Africa has to go back to its tribal roots to solve its problems. He did everything in his power to convince the African leaders to go back to their roots. The problem is that those same leaders realize that their position is supported by the West as part of the Western corrupt power games and influence.
France has been on the forefront of those corrupt power games and has found Gaddafi blocking those games several times.
Libya is the original name the Romans gave to the African continent and the scholar of history Moammar Gaddafi wants Libya and its developing modern tribal system to be an example for the African development, thus screwing up the Western Marxist World Order under the control of a “politburo” in New-York, pulling the authoritarian non- or anti-democratic strings. The dictatorship of the Security Council members was challenged by Gaddafi when he made his speech in New-York and tore a copy of the UN charter to shreds.
A madman? No, certainly not, a visionary is more like it.
The unification of Europe, the real starting point for a dominant world government will be shredded in the same way Gaddafi shredded the UN charter symbolically, and the dream of a world government will die a certain death and will be replaced by a consensus between independent mature nation states.
I hope Gaddafi will still be able to see that during his life because he is one of the few who saw clear, which is a major handicap in our time of soundbites and textbites without thorough examination and verification.
