Was Gaddafi a Bad President?

The whole world is messed up, badly!

Most of the African leaders have received millions of dollars from Libya’s Gaddafi (at one time Gaddafi has also accused or made claims to have given millions of dollars to the French Prime Minister for his re-election campaign and he wanted it back).

That’s why some African leaders have not been vocal publicly to condemn Gaddafi’s accused atrocities for his people, but then again, they are also afraid to publicly show their support for him.

And the West, they have always wanted Libya’s oil but Gaddafi has been a pain in a butt to cooperate with them, so the best option to get access to his oil is to take him out; which they did (and the soonest he’s killed, Libya’s oil started to flow into the world’s market).

Now, domestically, Gaddafi did a decent job for the economy in Libya. He had setup decent infrastructure for his people in his country. And only about 7.2% of the Libyan population lives under US$2 day unlike in many developing countries, especially in Africa. And the unemployment rate in Libya is at 40%, but most of the basic services such as education, healthcare, etc., in Libya were government subsided.

Apart from the alleged inhuman treatment of his people, Gaddafi provided decent basic necessities for his people. But in most countries, you would always have the ”loud mouth” opponents or opposition parties who when they speak, they sound as though they represent the rest of the citizens, just because they somehow feel dissatisfied with their government. It’s like saying that when some Republicans in the US voice their dissatisfied with Obama’s presidency, that when they open their loud mouths, that they speak on behalf of all the Americans, but that’s not how it is and that’s not how it should be. But when these loud mouths get any media attention, then they open their loud mouths as though they are speaking on behalf of everyone else.

Yes, Gaddafi mistreated and torched his people inhumanly, as accused, and I am not condoning his alleged actions, but he also did some good for his country.

So, who’s right to condemn Gaddafi? Depends on who you are and your thinking motive thereof. I believe everyman has and should have an equal access to a fair judicial system. No one is guilty until otherwise proven guilty. And those who commit these heinous killings, like what we have seen today, killing Gaddafi and pulling and kicking his corpse on the streets, just because he is accused of being wrong, then those who have killed and kicked his body around the streets are no different from the accused himself.

No human body should be pulled and kicked around the streets as what we see happening to Gaddafi et al. Every human being has a God given value, and no matter how guilty one is, there should be some kind of decency and humanly treatment.

If you gonna kill someone and pull his or her body on the street and kick his or her corpse around the streets while celebrating, then what makes you any different from the accused?

  1. I think Gadhafi was a good president as he cared for the whole of Africa. Western powers found Gadhafi as a giant rock on their way to getting what they want from Africa. His death marks the end of Africa’s main security against the imperialists. Just wait, a change will arise sooner

  2. Gadhafi wasn’t the neither a particularly bad ruler or a particularly good one.

    However, to celebrate a man’s brutal treatment is to both confirm the destructive tendencies in all human beings and to also reveal the fraud that we are somehow more civilized or better than him or the others involved in this fiasco on both sides.

    I for one am saddened by all of this.

    Not because I’m some bleeding heart liberal- but rather because it demonstrates just how fragile any and every society is when placed under stress.

    Regardless of his crimes the man should’ve been given a trial. Regardless of the outcome of that trial the man shoud have been treated with dignity even if he were found guilty of some crime.

    His only true crime was annoying the west. Others have done and will do worse than anything he could ever hope to.

    I hope the world is happy.

  3. compared to the many politicians today,Gadaffi is less guilty as he did in open conditions whatever he did.
    But,now he faced a brutal death,and those politicians are facing trials and enjoying their jail(vacation)life.
    Is this the way a man should be treated/???????????????????

  4. Indian elected leaders are selling India and Indian people away..and Gaddafi helped them instead..well these people should come and live in India..then they know what he was trying to do to their country..at least for the sake of The Great Man-Made River he should be given respect after his death..America is trying to rule like British again..and urge to power is the worst thing..one day they will know..we all know..

  5. My feeling is, Gadaffi has done massive good things to Libiya.. Libiya have seen shadows and thought its very dark from Gadafi. But now its going to get dark……. The person who killed might be 20 – 35 years.. he never seen a ruling in libiya other than Gadafi. now he is going to see… Political unstable, economical unstable….

  6. Americans will surely feel for that!!!!!!!!They should feel that brutal killing a person will never mean that the opponent is stronger.It shows their weakness and fear that they could never tolerate a person who is getting stronger.Whether he is good or bad!!!!!Surely there is an end to this hyprocrisy.And the day has to come when equality is estalibhed in the international forum.

  7. why would they say that they won’t to change is photo on their money as a good president they did not need it

  9. I am sure he is good or bad. Some said he is good, others said he is bad. Perhaps he’s really bad that deserve the punishment to death. But it is inhuman to treat the corpse like that and no one should celebrating the death of other. Poor Gaddafi.

Check this link to watch a snapshot of this project – Addition to that, ever country have political problems eg; USA,England every one knew what happened to Princess DIANA of wales who died by a” man made accident in france” later two countries made a deal to keep the DEATH report for 20 yrs, so I that humanity ?

  11. gahdafi was a great man. He had a vision to become self sufficient and completey unreliant on food, resources, CREDIT! from outside sources, especially from the US. imagine, an african nation on its way to being self sustaining, a forerunner in technology with the success of the GMMR and being debt free from the greedy fat banking elitists who run the US and and own nearly every freaken country on this planet!!
    They couldn’t have that could they?! then when his proposal for an african currency came to light, that sealed his fate…
    he tried to make a difference, create a society where all people can succeed and be free, not be driven by greed.
    A brave and courageous man.
