I read a FaceBook post on the Libyan lifestyle and don't understand, or never knew the Americans are/were against him. I just think its all greed over Oil and the US Government are fighting anyone to get their dirty hands on it.
BRISBANE SUNDAY MAIL 23/10/2011 (PAGE 53 )
WASHINGTON...MUAMMAR GADDAFI HAD MORE THAN $US200 BILLION IN BANK ACCOUNTS
REAL ESTATE AND INVESTMENTS BEFORE HE WAS KILLED ACCORDING TO LIBYAN OFFICALS
THE FIGURES REPRESENTS ABOUT $30,000 FOR EVERY LIBYAN CITIZEN.

RAPACIOUS AND BIZARRE WORLD LEADERS. DURING HIS 42 YEARS IN POWER GADDAFI STEERED

VERY INTERESTING..... read
The media has successfully painted Gaddafi as a hard-core dictator, tyrant whatever you want to call him. However, the media as usual has also failed to show the kind, giving Gaddafi we never heard of. Gaddafi unlike most dictators I will refrain from naming them has managed to show his humane side, the very side we dream of seeing in other dictators who just talk and talk.
I consider Libyans lucky to a certain extent and one wonders with the new democratic rule they cry for will it improve or worsen life for them Yes, Gaddafi has spent millions of Libya`s money on personal ventures but is the average Libyan poor? We know others who take a country and destroy it until you feel like there is no hope of restoring this country… looting some prefer to call it. Did Gaddafi loot Libya in any way?
Now let us get to the unknown facts about the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi:
1. There is no electricity bill in Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens.
2. There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at 0% interest by law.
3. Home considered a human right in Libya – Gaddafi vowed that his parents would not get a house until everyone in Libya had a home. Gaddafi’s father has died while him, his wife and his mother are still living in a tent.
4. All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 Dinar (US$50,000) by the government to buy their first apartment so to help start up the family.

6. Should Libyans want to take up farming career, they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and livestock to kick-start their farms – all for free.
7. If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need in Libya, the government funds them to go abroad for it – not only free but they get US$2,300/mth accommodation and car allowance.
8. In Libyan, if a Libyan buys a car, the government subsidized 50% of the price.
9. The price of petrol in Libya is $0.14 per liter.
10. Libya has no external debt and its reserves amount to $150 billion – now frozen globally.

13. A mother who gave birth to a child receive US$5,000
14. 40 loaves of bread in Libya costs $ 0.15
15. 25% of Libyans have a university degree
16. Gaddafi carried out the world’s largest irrigation project, known as the Great Man-Made River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country.
Which other dictator has done much good to his people?
>From Ellen Brown's (lawyer & Pres. of the Public Banking Institute) article in Asia Times, April 13, 2011; Uncensored magazine, Issue #24, June-September 2011Today’s Commentary on Libya...Conducting and rejoicing over this kind of lawless brutality and violent murder of others without due process, places those responsible beneath contempt! This kind of violent crime, destruction and atrocities committed against civilians is nothing to be proud of. In fact, it is despicably shameful and reveals much about the character of the perpetrators.In spite of claims made by various leaders and the media, most people know the invasion and mass murder in Libya was mostly about oil (Exxon/Mobile & BP), banking and oil currency! Vilifying and convicting a person in the media to justify the “capture and kill” policy is an affront to the rule of law, justice, democracy and the so called principals of what most wars have been fought for! Qs ...
Rebels financed and directed by who?
A Constitution drafted by who?
Voting controlled by who?
Oil & banking controlled by who?
