Some Qaddafi history:

Sarkozy signs deals with Gaddafi

France and Libya have signed agreements on issues including security, health care and immigration during talks between the two countries’ leaders.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy met Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in Tripoli a day after the release of six Bulgarian medics. The six were convicted of deliberately infecting Libyan children with HIV. The two leaders also agreed to work on a nuclear energy project that will turn sea water into clean drinking water. Their meeting is being seen as a sign of the normalization of ties between Libya and the EU following the medics’ release. The EU and the United States had made it clear to Mr Gaddafi that resolving the medics’ situation was key to improving relations. [1]

Sixteen Things Libya Will Never See Again… (10-25-2011)

 

  1. There is no electricity bill in Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens.
  2. There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at zero percent interest by law.
  3. Having a home considered a human right in Libya.
  4. All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 dinar (U.S.$50,000) by the government to buy their first apartment so to help start up the family.
  5. Education and medical treatments are free in Libya. Before Gaddafi only 25 percent of Libyans were literate. Today, the figure is 83 percent.
  6. Should Libyans want to take up farming career, they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipment, seeds and livestock to kick start their farms are all for free.
  7. If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need, the government funds them to go abroad, for it is not only paid for, but they get a U.S.$2,300/month for accommodation and car allowance.
  8. If a Libyan buys a car, the government subsidizes 50 percent of the price.
  9. The price of petrol in Libya is $0.14 per liter.
  10. Libya has no external debt and its reserves amounting to $150 billion are now frozen globally.
  11. If a Libyan is unable to get employment after graduation the state would pay the average salary of the profession, as if he or she is employed, until employment is found.

  13. A mother who gives birth to a child receive U.S.$5,000.
  14. 40 loaves of bread in Libya costs $0.15.
  15. 25 percent of Libyans have a university degree.
  16. Gaddafi carried out the world’s largest irrigation project, known as the Great Manmade River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country.

Libya’s “Water Wars” and Gaddafi`s Great Man-Made River Project

It was Muammar Gaddafi`s dream to provide fresh water for all Libyans and to make Libya self-sufficient in food production.

Libyans called it the eighth wonder of the world. Western media called it a pet project and the pipe dream of a mad dog. The “mad dog” himself in 1991 prophetically said about the largest civil engineering venture in the world:  After this achievement, American threats against Libya will double. The United States will make excuses, but the real reason is to stop this achievement, to keep the people of Libya oppressed.

Gaddafi’s dream

It was Muammar Gaddafi’s dream to provide fresh water for all Libyans and to make Libya self-sufficient in food production. In 1953, the search for new oilfields in the deserts of southern Libya led to the discovery not just of significant oil reserves, but also of vast quantities of fresh water trapped in the underlying strata. The four ancient water aquifers that were discovered, each had estimated capacities ranging between 4,800 and 20,000 cubic kilometers. Most of this water was collected between 38,000 and 14,000 years ago, though some pockets are believed to be only 7,000 years old. [2]

 

 

 

What appears to be at the center of all of this is Qaddafi’s gold and plans to create a gold backed currency(read the following closely): [3]

 

That gold appears to have been stolen:

Who Stole 143 Tons of Gold From the Libyan People?

Clinton’s Emails Have Disclosed the Real Reason for Gaddafi’s Overthrow

Those of us who have memories slightly longer than that of a spider, remember how Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi was violently overthrown and murdered by rampaging jihadists, in 2011.  Along with Gaddafi, his entire family was either destroyed, assassinated, arrested, or sent into exile. Gaddafi had led Libya for many years and even decades, patching together a successful and wealthy multi-ethnic, multi-tribal, but basically Arab state driven by quasi-socialist principles.  Based on the notions of an extensive social-welfare network and sharing the wealth. Towards the end of Gaddafi’s life, before Clinton Happened, Libya had managed to accumulate 140 tons of sovereign gold.  The Libyan government planned to use that gold, not just to raise the living standard of Libyans themselves, but also as a development fund, to drive the economic development of sub-Saharan Africa as well.  Many important development projects were lined up and just waiting to kick-off.

After all, what would the Libyans have done with all that gold anyhow?  Just built schools, hospitals, irrigation projects, and funded African development?  All laughably unimportant, compared to such goals as:

  1. Strengthening Sarkozy’s political position at home
  2. Putting Hillary Clinton into the White House; or
  3. Solidifying Bernard-Henri Lévy’s reputation as the “moral conscience” of our time.  (If “moral conscience” includes such notions as promoting colonial wars and genocide.)

Yes, But Where Is the Gold?

THAT MISSING LIBYAN-QADDAFI MONEY…

There’s some sort of story going on with that missing money of murdered Libyan dictator, Moammar Qaddafi. The trouble is, no one knows exactly what it is, but it has emerged, or rather, re-emerged, as a major story with the arrest and questioning of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy in connection with his financial dealings with the fallen Libyan dictator. As I stated last week, this is the largest arrest of anyone connected to “the cabal”. But again, exactly where Mr. Qaddafi’s money is, or where those frozen Libyan assets in Belgium disappeared to, or what connection any of it may have with M. Sarkozy, no one really knows. [5]

Lost Treasure

By Hannes Munzinger and Frederik Obermaier

Where is Muammar Gaddafi’s money? Rebels pulled the Libyan dictator from a sewage pipe near his hometown of Sirte on October 20, 2011. He was bleeding from his head, and rebels and bystanders joined in beating him and clubbing his groin with a bayonet. Shortly thereafter, this bird of paradise among African autocrats was dead. But shortly before he died, Gaddafi sold a fifth of Libya’s gold reserves, and most of the proceeds from this sale are still missing. The so-called Panama Papers could now shed light on the search for this incredible fortune.

Through a network of cryptic corporate investments, secret front companies and hidden bank accounts, Gaddafi had managed to set aside a fortune since the fall of the Libyan king in 1969. Oil had made Libya and, in turn, Gaddafi, rich. The former military captain is said to have been in possession of between $100 million and $200 million. Dozens of international lawsuits and investigations are still underway, with the return of funds as their central aim.

Documents made available to Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) by an anonymous source calling itself “John Doe” have now implicated two of Gaddafi’s most trusted advisors: one of his greatest protégés, and his chief investor. The former earned millions through obscure appointments through the state, while to this day the latter is probably hiding billions of dollars at the behest of and for the Gaddafi clan. Both of these men had been on Interpol’s wanted list for several years. [6]

Goldman Sachs lost 98% of Gaddafi’s $1.3bn investment

As compensation Goldman Sachs offered to turn Gaddafi into one of its top investors, the Wall Street Journal reports

A bitter rift has opened up between the world’s most powerful bank and one of its most fearsome dictators after Goldman Sachs invested $1.3bn (£790m) of Colonel Gaddafi’s money – and lost virtually all of it.

According to an investigation by the Wall Street Journal, Goldman offered to make Gaddafi one of its biggest investors as compensation for losing 98% of the money the Wall Street firm invested on behalf of the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA). This left the $53bn Gaddifi-controlled sovereign wealth fund, which elsewhere has stakes in companies such as Financial Times-owner Pearson and BP, with just $25.1m of the money it entrusted to Goldman.

The fund, which has soared in value in recent years on the back of Libya’s growing oil wealth, was frozen by the EU and United Nations in February because of its close links with the Gaddafi family. [7]

Where are ex-Libyan dictator Gadhafi’s missing billions? New UN report offers clues

A new United Nations report is shedding light on the disappearance of billions of dollars that vanished following the violent death of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. The report from the UN Security Council’s Panel of Experts on Libya, released earlier this month, details how the missing billions and gold have been hidden in locked boxes and bank accounts across the African continent.

€10 Billion Mysteriously Disappears From Gaddafi’s Frozen Accounts in Belgium

A massive €10 billion has mysteriously disappeared from the late Muammar Gaddafi’s accounts that were frozen as part of the sanctions against the leader’s inner circle.Gaddafi’s account, which is located in Belgian and belonging to the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) contained some €16.1bn in frozen assets. In 2017, authorities tied to seize the funds, but it was revealed there was just over €5bn left in those accounts.Belgian judicial authorities reportedly noticed the funds ‘disappear’ in autumn 2017 when the investigating magistrate, Michel Claise, requested the full seizure of the frozen Libyan funds.According to the paper, Belgium failed to comply with UN regulations governing asset freezes on certain Libyan accounts in banks. (moved to Cyprus????) [9]

Gaddafi Model – Ghaddafi kept asking for concessions and that he be allowed to lead on a transition, AFTER he agreed to step down. He was assassinated

Is Kim Jong Un asking for concessions after agreeing to step down??
