Kill The Head And The Body Will Die!
A particularly ugly little video from a portable phone that was released yesterday of Saif Gaddafi personally distributing arms and money and exhorting thugs to massacre the opposition.
The Gaddafi clan claims they aren't involved in killing their people, yet the recent history of Libya is a morbid tale of violence to control the various tribes. Moammar Gadaffi is the wealthiest man in the world at this time. His fortune is based on the oil wealth of Libya and his country has been kept poor and uneducated and primitive as he enriched himself.
His persecution of his people and personal corruption are reasons enough for the present revolution after 42 years of his autocratic rule.
He knows that if he was ever deposed by the people he would be murdered miserably. This is what makes him even more dangerous. He is engaged in a struggle to preserve his life and fortune.
For him, it is not about Libya.
He is ready to commit any atrocity to save his and his clans skin. That is why at this time, I support the immediate adoption and enforcement of a NO FLY ZONE over Libya. I urge the UN to give the Libyan opposition the military support they have finally asked for today.
The longer Gaddafi stays, the greater the possibility that he can commit greater attrocities.
The moral decision, now, is to do everything to help the Libyan people succeed in destroying him.
The oil is the fuel that made Gaddafi wealthy and it will be the energy that creates a new Libya. Perhaps the Western world can ignore the color red, the blood of his own people that Gaddafi has shed, but they do understand black, the color of OIL!
