Years ago, Muammar Gaddafi stated he was preventing migrants from crossing the Mediterranean sea by giving them a life in Libya.
Although hated by the West and their lackeys, from 1969 to 1973, Libya used the money received from the sale of oil to fund social welfare programs; house-building, health care and education.
In 1978, Libya had 50% more hospitals than it had in 1968, and the number of doctors went from 700 to over 3000. Malaria was eradicated, tuberculosis reduced.
Education increased with adult literacy programs and free university education. The public sector increased, providing employment for thousands.
And because of the jobs, the higher standard of living, migrants did not cross the Mediterranean sea.
The United States and England, through their secret services, created the ‘Mermaid Dawn’ mission which was to underthrow Gaddafi. This was the typical use of local people to fight against their own government.
Eventually, Gaddafi was killed, Libya fell apart, and millions of migrants started pushing into Europe.
Today, Europe is paying for overthrowing Gaddafi.
It is the same price for chasing the Soviets out of Afghanistan, for overthrowing Saddam Hussein in Iraq, yet they continue the attempts to under throw Assad in Syria.
The problem with ‘Intelligence’ services is that they are not very intelligent. They seem to know less about foreign affairs than a High School student.
These so called ‘Intelligence Agencies’ know nothing about the culture of the nation they are going to interfere with. They are incapable of foreseeing obvious consequences. They seem to believe that if a leader is overthrown, everything will work out.
The West seems to blunder into situations in which after the blood is wiped up, and the bodies buried, they leave, then seem astounded by the chaos.
