Gaddafi: Our Best Villain

Gaddafi: Our Best VillainMuammar Muhammad al-Gaddafi (born 7 June 1942) is a Libyan politician and revolutionary, who has led the Libyan state since he overthrew King Idris in a 1969 bloodless coup and established the Libyan Arab Republic.

He went on to survive revolts, military strikes and embargoes while showing a knack for playing to Western interests, namely geopolitical security and oil reserves.

It’s no surprise many of the interviews about hidden dealings are tainted by realpolitik. These personal accounts from key players are a fascinating foray into the diplomatic world of riddles, theatrics and hidden agendas.

In early February 2011, major political protests, which were inspired by recent protests in Tunisia, Egypt and other parts of the Arab world, broke out in Libya against Gaddafi's government and quickly turned into a civil war. Gaddafi vowed to die a martyr if necessary in his fight against rebels and external forces, saying that those rebelling against his government deserve to die.

On 17 May 2011 the International Criminal Court issued a request for an arrest warrant against Gaddafi for crimes against humanity.

This insightful essay-style documentary by Frenchman Antoine Vitkine puts current events into perspective by examining the motivations behind the actions of Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, a man whose peculiar appearance belies savvy negotiation skills.

    Its called Gaddafi our best enemy. Excellent doc.
    Bad guy but great fashion sense.

    So let's imagine in "small scale scenario":
    Gaddafi is the friend you are having a scrap with.
    The reporters are the friends you share, who spread the words about your scrap.
    You are a proud us citizen although you travel constantly abroad, you can't stand being anywhere for ever.
    Your "opponent" friend is a muslim.
    You have met long ago while travelling, you liked, appreciated and laughed together. You are two good persons.
    You are both on vacation somewhere.
    Your broken conversation is about religion and science, you feel betrayed and mildly pissed right off by what the other said. You almost want to punch him.

    One night you meet in privacy, you both share a "good" joint and talk some more...and somehow "by magic" you find a way back to coherence and egolessness. To be and to let be, while adjusting one Self a bit more through the other. Using the mirror.

    They call this "medical marijuana". The native indians told us in many ways but we didn't listen. We think pot is to get you high so you can laugh your ass off, well it is sometimes but many times it is so you can be a pacifist. Hey! it even calms down any sickness!
    Have your army smoke joints from morning til night and not many will want to go fight.
    Now i am not suggesting that pot is the solution to wars and conflicts on a large scale....i was afterall talking in small scale!
    I wasn't sure where i should land my bits of pixels about these ideas.
    A pot doc? A religious doc? A relationship doc? A war doc? A science doc?
    I chose this one because i always wanted to go on a meharée in the desert of Libya.

    Nonsense, he's a criminal terrorist, he ordered the Lockerbie bombing! He's also a Military dictator. There's no way the American people were his "friend" We the people are the U.S.A. and the things the cia does simply reflect very badly on our country.

  • Guest

    You fail to see what i was doing WITH MY WORDS?
    What i wrote had nothing to do with the doc but everything to do with my thoughts on wars and conflicts in small scale.
    I chose to put it here because i chose to put it here, i love deserts and have been in many on camel treck.

    You chose to read it your way because it is your way.

    Now about your comment,
    Every Government is a tyran in different degrees, in different arenas. What is particular is the style in which a government does his "inside game". The representative president or prime minister has a lot to do with the verbal personality of the combat.
    My guess is all of them participate actively in destroying their opponent, who ever this group may be.

    "ALL STATES, all powers, that have held and hold rule over men have been and are either republics or principalities." Machiavelli - The Prince

    Neither model of governance is intrinsically good or bad. Their moral superiority stands and falls on the actions and effects of their leaders. With this in mind lets look at living conditions in Libya!

    * Libya’s GDP per capita is $ 14,192.

    * For each family member the state pays a $ 1,000 yearly subsidy.

    * Unemployed are paid 730 $ monthly.

    * The salary of a hospital nurse is $ 1,000.

    * For every newborn $ 7,000 is paid .

    * Newly weds are donated $ 64,000 to buy an apartment.

    * To open a private business one gets a one-time financial aid of 20 000 $.

    * Large taxes and duties are prohibited.

    * Education and medicine are free.

    * Education and Internships abroad are at government expense.

    * There are chain stores for large families with symbolic prices for basic foodstuffs.

    * Gasoline is cheaper than water. A litre of gasoline costs $ 0.14. (2) The profits from oil sale were spent on the population welfare and rising life standards.

    What an awful place Libya must be to live in! It surely must be a breeding ground for discontent! Libyans must have serious grievances against their leader! Those poor Libyans, I don't know how they put up with it.

    On a side note, I went to Belgravia with £1million in my pocket, the promise of a fat Swiss bank account and a position of leadership in my future government and tried to drum up support for the removal of Cameron from 10 Downing St. Guess what? I recruited 1000 people who have been suffering awful injustice under the Cameron regime who have pledged undying allegiance to my future regime.

    You don't need to watch this documentary to figure out that there is a scam going on.

    I can't understand how the west would be considerd as advocates of human rights, while they are the worst human right abusers of the 3:rd world ppl's right. Ppl are getting aware that the only thing the west care about is to feed their dominance and to loot the African resources. This video is an evidence if you read between the lines, the only reason of NATO's bombing Libya is the hate they had for Qaddafi, it has nothin to do with democracy or human rights!

  • PavolvsBitch

    Wow. Thank you for those stats; wish I had lived in Libya! Here in UK it's misery inc. as usual. I know living standards are (or at least were) way higher in countries refusing usury-based Jewish fraud and that the IMF doesn't take rejection gracefully so declares 'war'.

    I have a friend (for over 40 years!) with whom I talk politics. He has many areas of interest within national and world politics. But, I have noticed that he denies anything that falls under the category of "deep politics", as coined by Peter Dale Scott and meaning all the true stuff that the media doesn't tell you. He is quite happy with the narrative he gets from CNN, and some of the liberal blogs, and "experts respected by the international community". There is no desire to look under the rug where the real dirt is. We remain friends and enjoy discussions. Maybe we even learn something from one another. Anyway, he's a friend. I think he represents many well-meaning people in our society. We did almost have a screaming fight in a restaurant over the "humanitarian" bombing of Libya. Thanks for posting this vid.

    No worries, i have my organic outdoors. Those plants love the high mountains, the fresh air flowing through the pine needles and the trembling leaves of the aspen trees.They also love to be watered with fresh and clear creek water. Thanks to the government owning most of the surrounding of the inhabited lands, people can hike and grow on our territory.
    We have a love relationship with the plant here in the Koots but yes you are right, many people grow indoor and pump these plants with all sorts of chemicals, but even indoor, organic grow is quite possible without bugs. You seem to know a lot, for a non-smoker?
    The demand is for bigger, juicer, perfect looking.

    But i will give it to you, it affords one to have a pleasant enough life if one is smart enough to dig holes around to hide the bills, instead of buying every toy on the market. Unfortunately the majority of big growers are young and spoiled by a marketable flowing life. They want it all now.

    don't forget to add the other Evils of the world such as... bush and Obama, then related peops to the list... preferably top of the list....their part of the biggest contributors to global civilian deaths and genocides....may as well nab them before they get old and die.

    gaddafi doesn't even make the top 1000 list of evil people...so why waste effort on small fry.

    Though Obama/bush's and related elite employers should get priority, but burn their lap dogs first to show them what's coming for them.

Now you are getting into things you don't understand and on top of that you are putting a knife into your own religious stomach by wishing someone's death - be it even Gaddafi. Who are you really, Charles? A devout Christian, as you proclaimed, who should turn the other cheek and leave the punishment of the evil ones to your lord Jesus Christ or a political analyst? Fear your god, Charles, because I am sure he's marked a minus in his notebook under your name after this.

    @ Dutch Major

    I agree that "gaddafi doesn't even make the top 1000 list of evil people." That does not in any way detract from the horror of Gaddafi's crimes.

    To "waste effort on small fry" is not a waste!

    There is no reasonable hope of successfully addressing the Bush/Cheney/Obama/Ahmadinejad... problems of this world.
    But we can successfully address the 'Gaddafi problem' and save thousands of lives, and untold suffering, in the process.

    So let's do what we can and leave the impossible for tomorrow.

    The more of this documentary I watch, the more I'm beginning to admire Gaddafi's political sense. It's amazing how he played the biggest world powers for so many years. If only he had used his skills for the benifit of the Libyan people.
    What I find hilarious is how this documentary spends so much time analysing Gaddafi as a terrorist turned anti-terrorist while glossing over how yesterday's Mujahideen "freedom fighters" are today's terrorists.

  • Epicurean_Logic

    @delhibiguy

    To read about the ways in which his leadership has benefitted the Libyan people look at my previous post in this thread and also have a squint at this bullet point.

    * In Libya, vast sums of money are spent on irrigation and the diverting of about 100 runoffs of the Nile. By its scale, this water project has been dubbed by Gaddafi as, "the Eighth Wonder of the World." It provides 5-million cubic metres of water a day across the desert, greatly increasing the irrigated area. 4,000 kilometres of pipes are buried deep into the ground to secure them from the heat. All that was needed for the project was carried out mostly by Libya herself. Nothing was bought in the First World, which has never helped developing countries to rise from a supine position, and if it does, then with the further enslavement of the receiving country (think IMF and World Bank loans!) With this water project, Libya was able to solve a lot of problems with food in Africa, and most importantly, it would help ensure stability and economic independence.

    Also, here are more ways in which he pissed off the world powers.

    * Gaddafi has amassed more than 143 tons of gold. He planned to introduced the dollar-free zone using the gold dinar instead of currency in settlements with other countries.

    * In 2010 Gaddafi made a motion to the UN General Assembly to investigate the circumstances of the US and NATO aggression against Iraq and bring to justice those guilty of mass human rights abuse.

    *He also submitted a draft resolution on the liability of former colonial states to their former colonies for the exploitation during the colonial period, and on compensation payments thereupon.

    It is clear that Gaddafi is no saint but If nothing else the man certainly has style.

    So true! Thank you!

    Although it is also true that those who were found working against Gaddafi were severely punished, hanging was not unusual...

    But every government punishes those who are working against it. Contrary to many governments, however, this guy is investing most of the country's revenues into improving the life of the people. I wish someone could give an example of a western democracy where university education is for free.

    delhibiguy. "international community" is helped in its bombing of an inhabited city of 2 million people, the capital Tripoli, and kill its leader, because you millions of docile "news" guzzlers dont even bother to take their mouse cursor all the way up to the search bar, and find out a little bit of the history of this country, and instead gobble up the surface story that's been prepared for years for them (under my watchful eye), and burp some lazy lie back out like "pity gaddafi didnt do something for his people" Shame on your laziness. It kills, it is killing innocent Libyans today, otherwise I wouldnt be so impertinent as to criticise it

  • AlfBeta

    As Epicureanlogic says - also wasting libya's oil on free education, housing for all, tolerance of immigrants, changing very low to highest standard of living in africa, lowest infant mortality, life expectancy raise by 15-20 years. Gaddafi didnt do this by hearing a bit of propaganda and letting it fall out of his mouth (sorry delhibiguy you've sparked off a rising outrage .He did it with the ruthless powers of experienced nation-crushing corporations against him. You bet he was clever and fearless. )

  • AlfBeta

    I haven't watched the vid yet, because I sniff that when I do, I'm going to need to spend some time on a critique that would be unnecessary if people would take responsibility for what lazy hatreds they allow to lodge in their being. But I will watch some of it soon. I'm surprised that the famous instant legend of Gaddafi's chemically tumescent hordes marching east and raping all living things in their path hasn't been casually mentioned here as tho it were as real as the air assault on the 2 million people of Tripoli. Do Americans know that Tripoli is in their team song?

  • AlfBeta

    Yes I and maybe you have advantage of witnessing decades of the program against gaddafi, the bombing of his family by u.s. jets with 200 unprovoked midnight sorties, the lockerbie scene, gaddafi's recent action in eliminating WMDs all the better for the "InternationalCommunity" to finish him off. The west has not had to try very hard to insert thoughts into the soft fat entertained and frightened brains . I'm a westerner, and I watch again and again the embarrassing ease with which reversals of truth are fed to supposed men and supposed women. They see as far as they can remember and there's not many traces in their "free press" of gaddafi's rescuing of his native land from Italy's wreckage and the yankee king and the oil theft. We're all in the same boat, it's easy to assume that history before one was born is given roughly accurately, and I hope some of these folks check out Iran's last 50 years, U.S. involvement etc, BEFORE they're put to sleep by the last chapter of the lullaby that comes before the attack on innocent human beings' water supply, sewage, hospitals, bridges, phonelines, tv, electricity, crops, factories, schools, universities, ancient gardens, libraries, quietness, happiness, and bodies. Amen

  • His Forever

    Let God judge my heart, but I know an evil man when I see one. What is wrong with longing for a time when a 40 year evil be gone from the face of the earth? If you were the brother or the mother or the daughter of one of the people he killed just because he wanted to, would you still be defending him? Evil is as evil does, and this man is very evil.

    But, in your defense, the Bible does say not to rejoice in the death of your enemy--meaning, don't glaot and be smug when one meets his just end. That still doesn't mean that we can't help him along to that well-deserved end (speaking on the national level of course).

    A meharée is a camel trek in a desert for a short or long period of time.
    I was fortunate to work for a hotel owned by a French fisty woman in Chinghetti for the period of the holidays (a month or so). Once a week i would be part of a crew of three driving jeeps through the desert for two days to go pick up a group coming back from a 10 days Meharee. Those jeeps ran the dunes lilterally like sailboats on a high sea.
    And then when you stopped, it was Magnificient!
    I have trekked the desert of India, Tunisia, Mauritania, Morocco on camel, Burkina Faso on the bus and on the back of trucks. And others... It is not so much the riding of the camel that i enjoy but the space it allows one to stop and observe the surroundings and conditions.
    The nuder nature is in front of me, the nuder i seem to be in front of it!

    i imagine as an artist, it would be nice to cover the floors of a house with thousands of pennies and create a desert floor, a good stage for a summer party, plus you invite the guess to bring their pennies

    Well Canada has declared war on Libya, the paaaaarrrtyy is on. Haha, god NATO & the UN are scumbags. ....and Libya just happens to have oil! Wow That Was Fast! Libyan Rebels Have Already Established A New Central Bank Of Libya.

    Perhaps when this conflict is over those rebels can become time management consultants. They sure do get a lot done. What a skilled bunch of rebels – they can fight a war during the day and draw up a new central bank and a new national oil company at night without any outside help whatsoever.

  • AlfBeta

    The West hasn't [quote]pandered and played his games all those years[/quote]. I can see how you could assume that, from the "news" and "background profiles" about, that are designed so that the average time-poor media consumer will "understand" that gaddafi has been a problem for the people, and for a very long time. Libya's actual history including Kaddafi era is widely on record though, and it doesn't resemble the "impression" that is put to us.

    other ahadith say O group of muhaajireen, 5 practices - if your afflicted with them ... and i seek refuge in Allah from you reaching them (!)evil does not spread throughout a people to the extent that they proclaim it openly except that plaque and hunger will spread among them, to such a degree that was previously unknown to them before; (2)people will not reduce in measurement ie by cheating with scales when buying and selling except that they will be overtaken by drought in the lands, by burdensome obligations,and by the oppression of the ruler upon them; (3)they will not refuse to pay zakaat on their wealth except that they will be prevented rain from the sky, and were it not for there livestock,they would not receive rain altogether(4)they will not break Allahs covenant of his messenger peace be upon him except that there external enemies will be given reign to subdjugate them, enemies that will take something from their hands and as long as their imams do not rule by Allahs book and they mock what Allah revealed, Allah will make their strength to be used among themselves - Against one another. this is talking about the muslims.

    This documentary, bullshit pro-NATO propaganda.

  • AlfBeta

    tho I'm not a muslim, I think he's saying that the assault, and drought, on islamic lands is what the prophet peace be upon him said would happen to them if they dont strictly stick to social requirements like paying zakaat (alms) to such as widows and orphans, and supporting sheiks who were crooks. btw, may interest you that [quote]and were it not for their livestock,they would not receive rain[/quote] demonstrates fundamental islamic understanding that animals are muslims, that is they do nothing but obey the will of Allah, meaning that they only try to remain in their fitr (true nature). The beings most departed from their fitr are human beings. I hope I made it clearer, and not less clear! In short he's saying that Islamic world has brought current and past misfortunes upon themselves as predicted.

    On one hand Real Africans, don't consider Gaddafi as an African, of course he never consider himself one, he live in African soil, yet his people are Arabs. Now, he expect 'Real' Africans to come to his aid (Which they are doing, because of their humane and forgiving nature), when his so called Arab brothers, abandoned him as they always do. While, many Africans think he and his Arab terrorists are not worth being in African soil, the hypocrisy of the West tend to win him some sympathy. The same West that supply him and his likes dangerous weapons to kill their own people are suddenly claiming to be bombing Libya in other to protect 'civilians'.
    What business has NATO in Africa, are they now military wing of UN??
    They myopic greed of the West when it comes to money will end up costing them their very existence. They are willing to sell their souls to the devil just for a quick gain. They are willing to form alliance with Islamic terrorists against their fellow Christians, for a short term gain, even when they know that those people will never like them..
    God help us if they US and their new romance with the same terrorists Taleban/Al Queada, succeeds in bringing them back to power!
    Now we wonder where to stand, since the same US that proclaimed that anyone not with them is with the terrorists, now secretly going to dinner with the same terrorists, while we foolishly stand there shouting at terrorists a' bad ...
    Are US now with them??? What an Irony!

    *@zatarra: Leave their jobs and do a mass refugee because white man says to
    again? There's no refuge from white man (except Allah they say). You
    believe the Lockerbie story and the disco. That's your faith. But that is
    faith in a proven serial liar changing into a truth-teller. And it's your
    faith, and I don't share it. I don't understand your francais, and
    googleTranslate doesn't either, but we probably agree on something.

    Propaganda Alert; viewer beware you cannot trust a document which starts on a false premise of 'turned tanks on his own people'. No, lawfully and legitimately defended his country and people from communist/jewish infiltration and massacre. The UN cover the Libyan 'rebels' (jews) atrocities. They are slitting the throats of the people like kosher sacrificing of animals, they are hanging people, impaling children's anus' with pole, cutting off their rape victims' breasts and enforcing canabalism on captured Libyan soldiers. US and UK Corp are consumed by the virus and Israeli Jews are taking revenge for the rightful expulsion of and cancelling the extortionate debts to the Jews. They never forget. You should see the revolting footage of thier Kosher fest in action. The people love their leader, the leader loves the people. Typical of the jew-created communist psychopolitcal strategy, their press defames by slurs of 'insanity' and then the British faction does it damndest to pin the label 'terrorist' on a man and his people for their own actions in Lockerbie and the Libyan Embassy killing of Yvonne Fletcher. From what I have read and seen, we, in the west have never experienced such benevolent guardianship.

    The narration and script are hugely biased and quite frankly, highly irritating. Had hoped for a more balanced, informative viewing.

  • Naomi Walsh

    I was a bit sceptical about his doc also... thanks for you informative review.

  • Human9000

    AlfBeta, you say "supporting sheiks who were crooks", can you tell me exactly how you extracted that, or was it an extrapolation using your apparent ignorant understanding.

    Azilda, to summarize what is said in the above, it is saying if Muslims don't follow their religion, then bad things will happen to them.

    This documentary lists all of these "crimes" committed by Gaddafi's regime, but really the only reason the west gives one shit about Libya is because Gaddafi nationalize his oil fields. End of story, book closed , send in the F-16s

    Of course a Frenchman would represent why we attacked Libya. If you do a little research you come to find that France has some interests that are not humanitarian

    I couldn't watch more than 4 minutes of this BS "documentary".

  • SuzanneVrieze

    At the Berlin disco bomb trial, the prosecution was unable to prove that Libya's Colonel Gaddafi was behind the attack. The court blamed this failure on the "limited willingness" of the German and US governments to share intelligence.

    dang dude we need more Love in the world :0

    Khaddafi always wore an attire with the image not of Lybia, nor the Magrheb only, but of Africa!!!!!!! Also, he has done many things for other African countries. Your three sentences are so wrong!!!! I had to read them many times to make sure you are really talking about Khaddafi on that one, lol. The guy could have been a maniac, a hard head, but it is with unanimity that people, especially Africans will tell you that despite all, Khaddafi has been of the greatest lover and believer of Africa. He always considered himself as an African!

    yes as Libyan I know that very well, I worked with Gadaffi just 3 days and then I changed my mind, because I know very well how his work was ,,,,,,

  • http://www.facebook.com/ainzrar05 Ain Zara

    USA , UK and France are looking for their interest "Oil Oil Oil " ,

    not available??

  • grace o'connor

    I was going to watch this one as I have seen some good ones on youtube about Gadhafi, but after reading over these comments I've changed my mind. Figure I won't waste the time.
    Look up truth about libya on youtube. They explain the real motives for the "humanitarian aid" we gave Libya.

  • NajiSaed

    Qaddafi was exporting oil to UK and France before and with no conditions ,but USA not used to export oil from Libya . In addition , The oil companies of the mentioned above were working and doing business in Libya ,So oil is not the real cause of those truly respected countries for intervention.And you're completely mistaken.

  • NajiSaed

    You're talking rubbish !!! believe me.

  • Xbow

    I agree Oil does not seem to be the reason (Directly), state sponsored terrorism can't be the reason since Gaddafi had been cracking down on the Madrassas in the west rather harshly. No, I think the Euro Trash wanted a guaranteed source of energy in the event of a Russian or Ukrainian boycott under their absolute control. Perhaps they feared that Gaddafi was losing his grip on the reigns of power and introducing instability. And a Humanitarian mission? Bullshit

  • AlfBeta

    After reviewing my many and lengthy comments of last year, and others' posts, I'm getting the idea that this doco is NOT the customary hypnosis session, and I'm gonna WATCH it!! They killed him like a mad and murderous dog, but who are the mad and murderous dogs?

    uh-oh it's no longer available lol
