Libyans now have to pay smugglers extortionate prices for petrol - where it had been 13 cents a liter under Gaddafi.

The thing is that the Anglo-Zionists got what they wanted - another prosperous and well organized Arab state sent back to the dark ages.
And it's worked out well for the people of Libya.
Oh hang on!
The retarded imbecility of the whole thing.
Gaddafi had plenty of faults and vices.
But nearly a decade later did they matter?
If you asked the Libyan people what would they have wanted?
It's a lot different than the narrative of the MSM I'd think.

Which economist did Nasser follow?


He certainly read Marx, but he thought full Communism would be too much for a Muslim society. So, he opted for state control of the Commanding Heights of the Economy, as Lenin put it.
