Libyans, Gaddafi, and the UK

“Muammar Gaddafi could stay in Libya”, William Hague concedes. In the recent days, the media reported: “Britain is prepared to agree to a political settlement in Libya that would see Gaddafi remain in the country after relinquishing his hold on power, the foreign secretary, William Hague, has said. Speaking at a press conference in London with his French counterpart Alain Juppé, who has been more relaxed about Gaddafi’s personal future [!], Hague said: “What happens to Gaddafi is ultimately a question for the Libyans. It is for the Libyan people to determine their own future. Whatever happens, Gaddafi must leave power. He must never again be able to threaten the lives of Libyan civilians nor to destabilize Libya once he has left power . Obviously, leaving Libya itself would be the best way of showing the Libyan people they no longer have to live in fear of Gaddafi. But as I have said all along, this is ultimately a question for Libyans to determine.” It’s obvious that compared to French politicians, the British politicians seem more expert in politics and secret deals. It’s so obvious that the politicians should try their best to put an end to the war, it’s their job, but not at any price, not under any condition, not with dirty secret deals. The British dirty tricks are not acceptable. The media added: “Hague indicated that Britain may be prepared to see Gaddafi escape justice [!!]. It is understood that Britain hopes to tempt Gaddafi out of Libya by saying that he can go to a country that does not recognize the ICC !”. But after a day, the media reported: “International criminal court (ICC) has dismissed suggestions by Britain and France that Gaddafi could be allowed to remain in Libya as part of negotiated deal to remove him from power, insisting that a new government would be obliged to arrest the dictator under warrants issued by the court. The ICC, which Britain and France have signed up to, said that Gaddafi could not be allowed to escape justice. The only legal immunity for an ICC warrant is a UN security council resolution which can suspend a warrant.” What the Libyans want is like what the ICC said. The media added: “‘It’s too late for such a thing,’ said a Libyan in Misrata. “Maybe if this deal [suggested by Hague] was made at the beginning, when Gaddafi had killed few people, maybe we could forgive him. But now, after this war, he killed a lot of people [near 30,000], it can’t be forgiven that easy.” The former foreign secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind said on Tuesday: “It is their country and it is their future. If they can live with a situation where Gaddafi remains in the country [!!!] but is deprived of power [!!!] then it is none of our business to say that is unacceptable [!!'” Rifkind is not stupid, he is a charlatan who pretends ignorance. Libyans have refused France’s demands for negotiating with Gaddafi: “Our position remains: no negotiations until Gaddafi, his sons and his inner circle are gone”, but the British charlatans pretend ignorance. Could the Britons forgive Hitler or Nazi leaders ?! If it was said: “Hitler should be allowed to escape justice”, what was the Britons’ reaction?

In the recent days, the media reported: “Britain has frozen £12bn of Libyan assets since the conflict began in February this year, the bulk of which will remain frozen until the regime of Gaddafi loses power”. As you know, the US has frozen at least $34bn of Libyan assets, too. Some say that about $130bn of Libyan assets has been frozen by the Western countries (US, UK, Germany, France, Italy, etc). But no one knows the precise amount. Some say: “the Western countries don’t spend even $1 for Libyans, and it’s just the Libyan assets that are spending on the war, and the world should know this fact .” Unfortunately the current situation in Libya is like the story of the frozen assets: very unclear, very dubious, and very disappointing. In the recent days, the Libyan rebels’ military commander, Abdel-Fattah Younis who was Gaddafi’s right hand man in the past, was murdered. The media reported: “He was murdered by his rebel comrades while in custody after being arrested on suspicion of having remaining ties to Gaddafi’s regime. Hours before his death was made public, Younis have been arrested and detained in Benghazi by members of the NTC over links he had supposedly kept with the regime.” Some analysts say: “Whatever the truth of the killing, NTC will face the hostility of Younis’s clan [!], the biggest tribe in Benghazi [!!], if he fails to conclusively show that rebel forces had no hand in the general’s death. With the rebel coalition already fractious, a split with the largest tribal group is the last thing the NTC needs”. Younis was a controversial figure, having defected after quitting his post as Gaddafi’s interior minister at the start of the revolution. The media reported: “Many in the rebel camp did not trust a man who had been a close confidant of Gaddafi for 40 years . The 67-year-old was among the military officers who joined Gaddafi in overthrowing Libya’s king, Idris, in a coup in 1969. He then became one of Gaddafi’s closest advisers, training his special forces and being appointed interior minister, responsible for the Gaddafi’s internal security . Many Libyans were unhappy that a key member of the Gaddafi regime should have been appointed commander of opposition forces.” Libya’s situation is very tragic. The west is very hypocrite. The western intellects are very stupid and hypocrite. They don’t care about the poor Libyans. The main thing that they care about it, is the money and the economy. It’s so obvious that Gaddafi should be tried. Some say: “The only thing that can be acceptable as a deal with Gaddafi is that the negotiators say: “Gaddafi will not be executed, and he can spend his last years like Napoleon’s last years”.
