Why do I say Ya khSara? Because great Libyan human resources and human riches have been squeezed out of a country supposed to be in a starving need for these resources whom some of them appear as great intellectuals in contributing to this great page, among them the writer of (Aish Gasdak?!!) Dr. Jaballa. It is a good article, rich with facts and tells the sad story of Libya in fine details. However, I would like to add to a fact that was misrepresented in the article. Many who want to avoid Gaddafi's wrath try to paint a positive image of him by trying to justify that not the whole mess is created by him but by the gangs, the Mafiosi, and the wrong people around him who misinform him and try to tell him that everything is Tamam Ettamam. Believe me, all those guys around him starting from man number two, whoever he is, and down to the most junior security agent, all agree that they only follow his instructions and all do not like what they are doing but they have no other options. The senior agents can not leave their position unless thrown out by him because they are too involved with him to be let free and loose. The junior ones are too unqualified to do other jobs anywhere else and make that easy money. Many of the members of circle 1 and 2 and 3 and so on were classmates in one school or another. As you know, there is a special classmate spirit which, inhibits socializing and allows for a brief moment a feeling of comfort, trust, and temporary peace of mind and allows old mates to get deep into matters and subjects. When they make sure that the windows Birisianas and glass are securely shut and nobody is listening on the other side of the wall and no recording devices are planted anywhere in the room, they really cry out describing their misery and how they are being humiliated and made as cleaning towels used by Elgaddafi. They tell how he used them more than often as scapegoats to blame them for his repeated intentional mistakes; how he always ordered them around to be Nakira and that their names must never be mentioned in any medium of the press; how he issued one of his infamous directives to Libyan colonels that when they sign any document must sign as 'Aqeed Fulan and not El'aqeed Fulan justifying that there is only one El'aqeed in the country and the rest are just Nakira; how he got rid of some elements who were once important links in the most internal circles around him. Those elements describe themselves as being Klab kharabga moved around by Elgaddafy to different Dar and when the time of one of the Klab comes he gets eaten by another Kalb as the game goes. As you know, Klab Elkharbga don't move on their own. Those around him are living in hell, all scared and all have no peace of mind and all say that their fate is in his hands. Every and each one of them expects that some day soon may get killed by a colleague of his being ordered to do so
We can understand here that El'aqeed is well informed and was never misinformed about anything. He always double checks the information he receives from someone against another source to confirm if it is genuine and to make sure that his destruction of the country is going according to plan. He created a great mistrust between each and every link and member of the internal and external circles that no one trusts the other even if they work on the same assignment or in the same office.
When you say that he is misinformed you add some kind of innocence and honesty to his behavior. He knows damn well what he is doing and he trusts nobody near him or far from him. He simply trusts no Libyan. All Libyans fortunately reciprocate but many of them had no choice but to stay in line. Most if not all of the well known names and figures around him now or in the past were mislead into participation in his destructive machine in the early days of the 'Revolution' just like the majority of the population who believed his agenda in those days. Many of his followers soon had a vision of the future and left but many others were too busy and too short sighted and stayed on. Now 100% of the Libyans agree on one thing, that is the country has been systematically dismembered and dismantled intentionally by Elgaddafi as he planned for many years. It is not that he is experimenting and wished that his experiments would reflect positively on the population but terribly meant to have the end as all his trials and errors did. Never intended to serve Libya as a loyal son but to destroy it as vicious enemy who harbors a great hate for Libya and the Libyans. You never see the guy when he talks on TV that he has good news for the country and its people or he gave hope in one time or another even a fake one. Each time he makes a speech Libyans run for cover. If you look deep into the folds of his face and his facial expressions you sense nothing but pure hate. He never meant trials but decisively meant errors. In a trial and error process you would have a probability of making some good as you would have publicly announced but the guy proved total failure all along and he meant to fail all along. He meant the outcome of his deeds to be as bad as it had been, has been and will be.
As it has become a common place in many of the Libyan web debate boards to see posts warning Libyans that unless Elgaddafi is forced to step down sooner than later, he will take advantage of the smoke created by the Lockerbie trial and by the flood of foreign deal makers, and crush whatever left of Libya and the Libyans. He already reached a dangerous threshold where he feels that his days in office are numbered and getting sufficiently desperate to be extremely dangerous. His over reaction to a Libyan voice on a TV station telling a very small part about 'Injazat Elfatah' illustrates just that. Libyans must act to save whatever is left of the nation. He swore that he would leave only when there is no more Libya left on the map. He got all wishes made, don't let him have his last wish.
