Mustafa A.G. Abushagur (born 1951), an anti-Qaddafi academic has lived in the United States since 1775. He is a professor of electrical engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and founding president of RIT in Dubai. After the murder of Qaddafi, Abushagur was made deputy prime minister in the US-created transitional government. He became the so-called “first elected prime minister of Libya” on September 12, 2012.
After the western regime change in Libya in October 2011, the once the richest and most stable African nation has turned into another US-NATO occupied Afghanistan. The tribal warlords, western-armed insurgents and Saudi-Islamists are all killing each others and the innocent citizens to share the loot. Washington has thrown its support behind one of its other poodle, Mahmoud Jibril, as the next prime minister – a process which may take several weeks.
The western colonial powers have always worked with some of the most repressive regimes whenever it suited their interest and viciously condemned those who took an independent stance. Qaddafi was not a enemy of his western accusers. He was well-known for dining and wining with Barack Obama, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, Silvio Berlusconi, Nicolas Sarkozy, etc. His former chief of intelligence and later foreign minister Moussa Koussa was frequent visiter to CIA and MI6. Koussa defected to the UK at the beginning of the Libyan revolution. After being debriefed there, he was sent to the US. Today he lives comfortably in one of the Gulf States enjoying his loot.
Qaddafi regime also maintained economic ties with western corporations. Western oil and construction companies were getting lucrative contracts while their banks were getting huge deposits of Libya’s billions. So, why the West needed to dump its ’golden hen’? It’s said that Qaddafi tried to rock the boat during his last years in power. He established three African loan institutions with $200 billion reserves which threatened IMF operation in Africa and he also refused to join the ‘Mediterranean Grouping’ headed by Zionist Jew Nicolas Sarkozy. The is meant to open the Mediterranean Sea to Israeli shipping.
Was Qaddafi a brutal dictator needed to be removed to save Libyan population? Cameroonian political analyst Jean-Paul Pougala, had claimed in April 2011 – that Libya under Qaddafi was more democratic than countries like France, England, the USA, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Poland, etc. who removed him by military invention. Pougala believes Qaddafi was removed because he was blocking the world powers to recolonize African countries through corrupt and puppet regimes.
Michael S. Rozeff, a retired professor of Finance, in May 2011 article, entitled ‘Why the West is attacking Qaddafi’, said: “Like those who run Western states, Gaddafi is a statist. They all think entirely in terms of the system of states. Although this system has violence and immorality at its heart and throughout its breadth, these leaders all employ a rhetoric of justice as well as a rhetoric of utilitarianism (that they do evil things at times for the sake of a greater good)“.
The last straw came during 2009 UN General Assembly meeting in New York – when Qaddafi tried to sound like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by exposing western hypocrisy.
