Gaddafi today, who’s next?

2011-10-22 15:43

News of the cruel death of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi at the hands of Nato forces has sent shock waves across the globe.

This dictator, as he is known, has finally met his fate.

Libyan people wanted to be free but they should not start rejoicing as the likes of Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt remain unstable to this day.

We all know that Nato’s intention is to get access to oil-rich countries.

The National Transitional Council is just a puppet that has been used to oust Gaddafi, knowing very well that the intention was not to liberate the people but to get to the oil. The Obama-led America has turned into the new enemy of Africa and the Arab countries.

Even though Gaddafi was a dictator he didn’t deserve to be executed the way he was by Nato thugs. Neither did Saddam and Bin Laden deserve to die as they did.

According to the UN Security Council, leaders of countries, whether they are dictators or not, should be brought to justice in cases of wrongdoing, not be killed in a cold-blooded fashion as happened with Gaddafi and Bin Laden.

The less said about the African Union the better. It is a useless structure that should disband.

Who is Nato’s next victim going to be – Cameroon’s Paul Biya, Zimbabwe’s Mugabe, Eduardo Dos Santos of Angola, Julius Nyerere or Mswati III of Swaziland?
