Great to see the revivification of Gaddafi beginning here. The man was a saint but he did have a
camel face. Idi Amin should be next in line for deification.

Gaddaffi will one day be acknowledged as an African hero.

most humans seem to have better hindsight than foresight.
Yes, and many of today's heroes will be seen for the villains that they were, if wisdom takes effect.

The measure of a leader is not simply to oppose the "Muricans". It is how he prepares his people for freedom. Nehru was one leader who opposed much of what the US did. But, in addition, he did well by the Indian people. Nehru was great. Gaddafi was not. Mandela, likewise.
What's on your mind...

Some leaders have underestimated the corruptive influence the West exerts over their population. Wealth and education are never enough....... are never enough.... it seems.

Simply parroting the lies and propaganda about Gaddafi will not change the visionary policies he had to develop his country and people to be true share holders in its wealth and resources. He paid a price for trying to make Africans stand up for themselves. He was tricked by the Western powers and so was Russia. However people that learn from history become wiser and ultimately stronger. Gaddafi's killing under false pretexts destroyed what little trust or goodwill that remained between the Western powers and Russia and China at the UN. It has had flow on effects in Syria and later. Many other nations have also moved away from the Western influence and developed stronger ties with Russia and China because of the treachery in Libya.
