The Destruction of Libya in 2011

Tales of the American Empire | May 28, 2020

The American empire wanted to oust Muammar Gaddafi for decades. He remained in power as he carefully balanced interests in Libya’s complex tribal society and kept the military under control. Gaddafi was popular since he invested Libya’s oil wealth improving the lives of Libyans rather than in Western banks. Before its 2011 destruction, Libyans were the wealthiest in all of Africa. President Obama chose to destroy Libya despite meeting with Gaddafi after winning the Nobel Peace Prize. His Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the strongest advocate for this war crime. When later asked about Gaddafi’s death, she laughed and exclaimed: “We came, we saw, he died.”

  1. Gee that video is not available(in Australia, anyway). I’m utterly surprised that Col Gadhafi trusted Goldman Sachs, and other Wall St firms to invest his money in. He must have known that they could not be trusted.
    And, I’ve seen the tape of Hillary saying, “We came We saw He died”….and giggling like an idiot……What a ‘piece of work’ she is. I think America dodged a bullet when she lost the race to be President.
    And, the first thing that the America/NATO alliance did in Libya was to install a Rothschild’s Central Bank, and all of Gadhafi’s gold “disappeared’…….I wonder where it went???

    • I was able to access that video today(Thanks Aletho) Disgraceful act by Hillary. What an evil cow she is. The USA dodged a bullet when she lost the election(she had promised to take the USA’s relationship with Israel “to the next level”) One can only imagine that she meant giving total power to Israel , in the USA itself.
      And, of course, the video showed that the logistics of destroying Libya, could only be achieved, NOT by a ” Rabble of Rowdy Rebels”, but by a “Major Power” co-ordinating TOTAL WAR, not only on Lybia, but also Syria as well…Gee, I wonder who it could be?
