Much has already been said and reported about Libyan strongman Muammar Gadaffi. Like Saddam Hussein, he is portrayed as either a madman, an eccentric, a dictator, a murderer or all of the above.  He is called the same things that most won’t call American presidents or any leader of the “civilized” world – they who lay down oil pipes on bombed villages or corpses.

Since most of what we consume come from the Western press, we have decided to come up with this collection of links that we hope would somehow put things in context or shed some light as to who Gadaffi really is.

“Gadhafi’s consistency and determination has actually reignited the movement towards the formation of a United States of Africa that would make Africa richer, stronger, and more peaceful. Despite his perceived eccentricities, and incessant demonization in the controlled media, “The Great Brother Leader of the Revolution” as he is called by his people, has remained a force on the global stage.”

From “An Analysis of Muammar al-Gadhafi’s Green Book.”

But is he really an anti-imperialist?

“Far from being an anti-imperialist government, however, Gaddafi has agreed on several occasions with world imperialism, meeting and signing deals with Berlusconi, Sarkozy, Zapatero and Blair. He has also received visits from the Spanish King Juan Carlos, representing employers in that country.”

The Lucha de Clases writes about Gaddafi on “The truth about the present revolutionary uprising in Libya.

“More and more, African leaders are standing up against Western intervention in Africa’s political and socio-economic affairs. African leaders are slower to condemn leaders that are seen as bogeymen in the eyes of the West. Proudly Afrikans would love to believe the West has the best interest of Africa at heart. However, as a precaution, we challenged ourselves to find just 7 reasons why the West would celebrate the fall of Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi”

Proudly Afrikan writes “In Defense of Muammar Gaddafi.”
