A Look At Libya and Ghaddafi
Interesting look at what happened to Libya and Ghaddafi from Eric Margolis who knew Ghaddafi and seems to have spent some time in that country. This week marks the 5th anniversary of Ghaddafi's killing:
"Western special forces intervened behind the cover of a popular uprising. Khadaffi’s rag tag forces quickly collapsed and rebel groups seized power, murdering Khadaffi in the process.
The west got Libya’s high-grade oil and was rid of a thorn in its side. Khadaffi told me that if he were overthrown, Libya would splinter into its tribal mosaic – which is just what has happened. Chaos reigns as warlords backed by the US, France, Britain, Italy and Egypt – and a small ISIS contingent – fight over bleeding Libya. Decades of development that made Libya Africa’s leader in health care and education were wiped away."
