TRIPOLI — The latest news on Hillary Clinton’s aiding and abetting the murder of Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi in 2011 confirms what many thinking Africans already suspected—a primary reason for killing Gaddafi and destabilizing Libya was to loot the nation’s ample gold and silver reserves.
The April 2011 email to Hillary Clinton from Sidney Blumenthal, an advisor to Hillary and Bill Clinton, had the subject line: “France’s client and Qaddafi’s gold.”
Blumenthal wrote to Hillary Clinton: “Qaddafi has nearly bottomless financial resources to continue indefinitely, according to the latest report we have received.”
Blumenthal advised Hillary Clinton that the “143 tons of gold, and a similar amount of silver” valued at more than seven billion dollars posed a threat to the French franc (CFA) currency that Libya currently used. As Blumenthal’s words revealed, the western interests were primarily concerned with Libya’s money:
On April 2, 2011 sources with access to advisors to Saif al-Islam Qaddafi stated in strictest confidence that while the freezing of Libya’s foreign bank accounts presents Muammar Qaddafi with serious challenges, his ability to equip and maintain his armed forces and intelligence services remains intact. According to sensitive information available to this these individuals, Qaddafi’s government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver. During late March, 2011 these stocks were moved to SABHA (south west in the direction of the Libyan border with Niger and Chad); taken from the vaults of the Libyan Central Bank in Tripoli.
This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA).
The email also mentions several reasons why the French President Nicholas Sarkozy specifically committed to attack Libya:
“a. A desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production.
b. Increase French influence in North Africa,
c. Improve his internal political situation,
d. Provide the french military with an opportunity to reassert its position in the world,
e. Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi’s long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa.”
Western nations wanted Libyan oil and were afraid that Muammar al-Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves would threaten the faltering European and American currency—reserves that print money widely and frivolously but are largely backed by nothing but paper.
It is important to note what factors are missing from this briefing on why France and NATO invaded and destabilized Libya and executed her president. Here, there is no mention of human rights violations or saving Libyan lives.
Sure, all that might be convenient propaganda to disseminate over the airwaves, but when the real motives are on the table, these claims of democracy and freedom are nowhere to be found. Perhaps because these are straw man philosophies and not ones that France, NATO, the UN, or the U.S. actually support.
Another email sent by Sidney Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton shows that the west certainly had not intentions of keeping Libyan civilians safe. Quite the opposite, the west approved killings of Libyan civilians—especially Black and dark-skinned Libyans. These emails contain clear evidence of war crimes, including extra-judicial killings.
Western-backed Libyan rebels specifically targeted Black Libyans and civilians and sub-Saharan contract workers in a “racial cleansing” project—one similar to killings conducted by terrorist groups like the Ku Klux Klan and U.S. police killings of Black men and women that go without indictments or any form of punishment. Black Libyans were subjected to inhumane acts of torture and execution. In the town of Tawergha, for example, a population of 30,000 Black Libyan’s were killed by NATO-backed terrorists in August 2011.
Of course, this information is nowhere to be found in the western media where a killing of a single white American or European would stop traffic but the killing of thousands of African Americans or Africans goes without mention; the act might even make you a more viable candidate for president.
Already the U.S. Democratic debates are hidden on off-peak television time slots, to bury any chance that mass audiences will hear Hillary Clinton’s debate with her Democratic opponents (although these opponents are not serious contenders). In a similar fashion, the U.S. State Department dumped these 3,000 emails on New Year’s Eve, in the hopes that they would escape the eyes of journalists who were celebrating the New Year. It therefore comes as no surprise that the French and U.S. mainstream media are avoiding this story altogether.
As if we needed more proof of Hillary Clinton’s dishonesty. Add to her supporting the mass incarceration of millions of African American men and women, and hence the destruction of Black families and communities, Hillary’s Clinton’s reign of terror on African bodies, destabilizing Libya and aiding the murder of her leader.
How can anyone who is not lobotomized view this woman as a credible candidate for the U.S. presidency?
Now that Hillary Clinton’s sloppy email management has revealed blood on her hands for the killing of thousands of Black Libyans, when will this criminal get her day in court to be tried for her war crimes against humanity? How many times can she commit acts of treason before she is indicted?
While there is blame on the criminal, Hillary Clinton, we must also extend blame to people who support criminals even after these truths repeatedly come out. We must also extend blame to Africans who continue to defy their leaders, who disrupt African governments, who twist a sword into their own brother for a CIA or MI6 stipend?
Whether he is Gaddafi or Nkrumah, any African leader who even breathes mention of pro-African Union policies is quickly labeled a dictator, a human rights violator, and a non-believer in freedom and democracy. The message spewing out of the western propaganda machine reads the same each time. There is no further code to encrypt.
If he cannot be overthrown, his head is placed on the UN, NATO, or “International” Criminal Court chopping block, his gold and silver are looted so that western nations can continue to receive their global social welfare from an emasculated Africa. So the paternalistic, parasite-mother France can continue to keep African monies in its banks. After Libya’s invasion, add that seven billion in gold and silver Hillary Clinton and co. stole to the western welfare chest of plunder.
No matter their lip service to aiding African nations, no matter how many NGOs spring up each day with their Toyota Land Cruisers, no matter how many millions corporations give to fund African women’s empowerment or liberal arts education, France, NATO, the U.S. and Hillary Clinton have no interest in helping Africa or Africans.
Hillary Clinton’s emails reveal that killing Gaddafi was, as many suspected, only a move to destroy African progress. Military aggression was summoned to reinforce a neocolonialism, to prevent African independence and economic freedom, and to prevent the development of a pan-African currency.
The west would like nothing more but to restrain Africa, cut off her arms and legs, then offer to help walk and feed her. In fact, whenever Africans like Gaddafi, Nkrumah, or others loudly and proudly proclaim: I am an adult, I can walk and feed myself just fine!—that is precisely when the west concocts a plan to sever his arms and legs–to restrain the people and keep them colonized.
We cannot bring Gaddafi back, because Hillary Clinton, NATO, France, and the U.S. have already orchestrated his execution. But we can stand up for our adulthood, our manhood and our motherhood to the world. We do not need paternalistic parasite-babies who offer to help in plain sight but behind closed doors plot to thwart our independence. Unlike pathological propagandists, we do not merely trumpet ideals of freedom, we truly believe in freedom for all nations, especially our own.
And we also want back our seven billion in gold and silver stolen for absolutely no reason other than sheer gluttony!
