Gaddafi bejammert „Einmischung“

August 21, 2011

Gaddafi beklagt sich über das Eingreifen der NATO in den libyschen Bürgerkrieg.

Er scheint dabei völlig vergessen zu haben, was er selbst im Tschad, in Tansania, in der Zentralafrikanischen Republik und in Liberia gemacht hat:

Gaddafi ran a school near Benghazi called the World Revolutionary Center (WRC), where he gave military training to foreign leaders who shared ideological similarities with him.[92]Blaise Compaoré of Burkina Faso and Idriss Déby of Chad were graduates of this school, and are currently in power in their respective countries.[93] Gaddafi trained and supported Charles Taylor of Liberia, Foday Sankoh, the founder of Revolutionary United Front, Jean-Bédel Bokassa, the Emperor of the Central African Empire.,[94][95] and Mengistu Haile Mariam of Ethiopia.[95] Gaddafi intervened militarily in the Central African Republic in 2001 to protect his ally Ange-Félix Patassé from overthrow. Patassé signed a deal giving Libya a 99-year lease to exploit all of that country’s natural resources, including uranium, copper, diamonds, and oil.[92] He also sent troops to fight against Tanzania on behalf of Idi Amin and lost 600 Libyan soldiers defending Amin’s collapsing regime.[94]
