Africa will not abandon Gaddafi

The US secretary of state in an address at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, has told African diplomats to urge their leaders to abandon Gaddafi and expel pro-Gaddafi diplomats in their countries and isolate the “brother leader”.
Africa surely will not abandon the Libyan leader. Why would we? Gaddafi is not only a hero among African leaders alone but is widely admired and hailed all across Africa and still does.
Africans know that the very imperialists powers now bombing and destroying Libya are no angels. We know that these imperialists subjected Africans to more than 400 years of slavery, brutality and inhuman treatment.
We know that these same imperialists robbed Africa through hundreds of years of colonialism and are still robbing Africa through neo-colonialist policies such as the French colonial pact.
We know that these same crusaders masterminded the removal or killings of progressive leaders in Africa such as Dr. Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana (American CIA), Thomas Sankara  of Burkina Faso (France), Patrice Lumumbu of Congo (Belgium) and widely supported the Apartheid regime of South Africa and criminalised the ANC and Nelson Mandela who they now consider a hero. They even supported the Apartheid regime to build nuclear weapons but later encouraged its disbandment when the ANC took over. We know that it was because President Robert Mugabe flushed out the white farmers from Zimbabwe that attracted the kind of economic sanctions which the west later blamed on inefficient economic management. We know that these very imperialist through the IMF and World Bank have crippled many African economies.
So why now should Africans trust the west? There can be no trust and Africans will not abandon the brother leader who has been unfairly treated by the west just like our past martyrs such as Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara and all the martyrs who died fighting white supremacy in South Africa and the rest of Africa.
Hillary Clinton, you are just wasting your breath. We know there are some in Africa who really don’t know what is at stake or who are afraid that if they refuse your word, they will lose grants, but we know that for once, African interest will reign high. Ubuntu!!!

Gaddafi has done Africa much more harm than good. Remember his Islamic Legion? It spread death and chaos in Uganda and Chad, killing many Africans and let the world look at us with disgust.
Now he kills his own people on mass scale... He is no real African, and he never was, only a lunatic with a lot of oil.

When you want to get over the colonial ages, you must get rid of thinking of this time first. Imperialism is long gone.

Why the West wants the fall of Gaddafi? An analysis in defense of the Libyan rais Part 2


AFRICAN MONETARY FUND, AFRICAN CENTRAL BANK, AFRICAN INVESTMENT BANK

The US$30 billion frozen by Mr Obama belong to the Libyan Central Bank and had been earmarked as the Libyan contribution to three key projects which would add the finishing touches to the African federation – the African Investment Bank in Syrte, Libya, the establishment in 2011 of the African Monetary Fund to be based in Yaounde with a US$42 billion capital fund and the Abuja-based African Central Bank in Nigeria which when it starts printing African money will ring the death knell for the CFA franc through which Paris has been able to maintain its hold on some African countries for the last fifty years. It is easy to understand the French wrath against Gaddafi.

The African Monetary Fund is expected to totally supplant the African activities of the International Monetary Fund which, with only US$25 billion, was able to bring an entire continent to its knees and make it swallow questionable privatisation like forcing African countries to move from public to private monopolies. No surprise then that on 16-17December 2010, the Africans unanimously rejected attempts by Western countries to join the African Monetary Fund, saying it was open only to African nations.

It is increasingly obvious that after Libya, the western coalition will go after Algeria, because apart from its huge energy resources, the country has cash reserves of around a 150 billion. This is what lures the countries that are bombing Libya and they all have one thing in common – they are practically bankrupt. The USA alone, has a staggering debt of $US14,000 billion, France, Great Britain and Italy each have a US$2,000 billion public deficit compared to less than US$400 billion in public debt for 46 African countries combined.

Inciting spurious wars in Africa in the hope that this will revitalise their economies which are sinking ever more into the doldrums will ultimately hasten the western decline which actually began in 1884 during the notorious Berlin Conference. As the American economist Adam Smith predicted in 1865 when he publicly backed Abraham Lincoln for the abolition of slavery, ‘the economy of any country which relies on the slavery of blacks is destined to descend into hell the day those countries awaken’.

Why the West wants the fall of Gaddafi? An analysis in defense of the Libyan rais. Part 3

REGIONAL UNITY AS AN OBSTABLE TO THE CREATION OF A UNITED STATES OF AFRICA

To destabilise and destroy the African union which was veering dangerously (for the West) towards a United States of Africa under the guiding hand of Gaddafi, the European Union first tried, unsuccessfully, to create the Union for the Mediterranean (UPM). North Africa somehow had to be cut off from the rest of Africa, using the old tired racist clichés of the 18th and 19th centuries ,which claimed that Africans of Arab origin were more evolved and civilised than the rest of the continent. This failed because Gaddafi refused to buy into it. He soon understood what game was being played when only a handful of African countries were invited to join the Mediterranean grouping without informing the African Union but inviting all 27 members of the European Union.

Without the driving force behind the African Federation, the UPM failed even before it began, still-born with Sarkozy as president and Mubarak as vice president. The French foreign minister, Alain Juppe is now attempting to re-launch the idea, banking no doubt on the fall of Gaddafi. What African leaders fail to understand is that as long as the European Union continues to finance the African Union, the status quo will remain, because no real independence. This is why the European Union has encouraged and financed regional groupings in Africa.

It is obvious that the West African Economic Community (ECOWAS), which has an embassy in Brussels and depends for the bulk of its funding on the European Union, is a vociferous opponent to the African federation. That’s why Lincoln fought in the US war of secession because the moment a group of countries come together in a regional political organisation, it weakens the main group. That is what Europe wanted and the Africans have never understood the game plan, creating a plethora of regional groupings, COMESA, UDEAC, SADC, and the Great Maghreb which never saw the light of day thanks to Gaddafi who understood what was happening.

Why the West wants the fall of Gaddafi? An analysis in defense of the Libyan rais. Part 4

GADDAFI, THE AFRICAN WHO CLEANSED THE CONTINENT FROM THE HUMILIATION OF APARTHEID
For most Africans, Gaddafi is a generous man, a humanist, known for his unselfish support for the struggle against the racist regime in South Africa. If he had been an egotist, he wouldn’t have risked the wrath of the West to help the ANC both militarily and financially in the fight against apartheid. This was why Mandela, soon after his release from 27 years in jail, decided to break the UN embargo and travel to Libya on 23 October 1997. For five long years, no plane could touch down in Libya because of the embargo. One needed to take a plane to the Tunisian city of Jerba and continue by road for five hours to reach Ben Gardane, cross the border and continue on a desert road for three hours before reaching Tripoli. The other solution was to go through Malta, and take a night ferry on ill-maintained boats to the Libyan coast. A hellish journey for a whole people, simply to punish one man.

Mandela didn’t mince his words when the former US president Bill Clinton said the visit was an ‘unwelcome’ one – ‘No country can claim to be the policeman of the world and no state can dictate to another what it should do’. He added – ‘Those that yesterday were friends of our enemies have the gall today to tell me not to visit my brother Gaddafi, they are advising us to be ungrateful and forget our friends of the past.’

Indeed, the West still considered the South African racists to be their brothers who needed to be protected. That’s why the members of the ANC, including Nelson Mandela, were considered to be dangerous terrorists. It was only on 2 July 2008, that the US Congress finally voted a law to remove the name of Nelson Mandela and his ANC comrades from their black list, not because they realised how stupid that list was but because they wanted to mark Mandela’s 90th birthday. If the West was truly sorry for its past support for Mandela’s enemies and really sincere when they name streets and places after him, how can they continue to wage war against someone who helped Mandela and his people to be victorious, Gaddafi?
