The Legacy of Muammar Al-Gaddafi

The late Libyan leader Muammar Al-Gadhafi’s 42 years legeacy can be outlined coulorfully. Some have depicted him as a brutal dictator, especially by western media outlets. Because he -in recent times – criticised leaders of oil rich gulf countries, the media in those countries as well some media outlets of other countries that managed to oust their leaders, keep describing col Gadhafi in the worst imaginable ways. But if you really look at who he managed to oust in 1969 without any bloodshed (unlike NTC who ousted him) and the contrasting situations before and after he came power, then you would start to have – at least – some positive thoughts about him.

Media is a strong tool that can influence peoples’ minds. Easily when one-sided in covering a situation, the positives – often – are ignored. The same thing happened with the coverage of Libya and gadhafi. Rarely we hear world media talking about the achievements Col gadhafi and the accusations leveleld against him often don’t add up.

Second, lets look at his rise to the leader of Libya. In his youth, Muammar Gaddafi was an admirer of Arab nationalist leader Gamal Abdel Nasser. He first hatched plans to topple Libya’s monarchy as a young soldier. A charismatic figure, he received army training in the UK before returning to Libya to overthrow King Idris in a bloodless coup on 1 September 1969.

Gaddafi was a huge admirer of Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser, who led the Egyptian Revolution of 1952

He developed his political philosophy known as the Green Book and took on foreign oil interests in Libya. He also played a key role in the Middle East oil crisis of 1973-74 and fostered links with fellow African and other regional leaders. His attempts to represent pan-African interests were not ultimately successful.

Col Gaddafi’s courting of militant groups, including the Irish Republican Army and the Palestine Liberation Organisation earned him the “mad dog” label from US President Ronald Reagan. The US responded to Libya’s alleged involvement in a terror attack in Europe with air strikes on Tripoli and Benghazi. Col Gaddafi’s adopted daughter Hana was killed in the as a result of bombing along with 100 Libyans.

The bombing of Pan-Am flight 103 over the Scottish town of Lockerbie was the next significant escalation in tensions. Libya was blamed for causing the deaths of 270 people in the air and on the ground, the worst single act of terrorism ever witnessed in the UK. Col Gaddafi’s initial refusal to hand over the two Libyan suspects to be tried resulted in a protracted period of negotiations and UN sanctions.

In 1999, two Libyans were handed over and tried in a Scottish court for the Lockerbie bombing, one was found guilty. The resolution of the case, along with Col Gaddafi’s subsequent admission and renunciation of a covert nuclear and chemical weapons programme, paved the way for a significant warming of relations between Tripoli and Western powers. With international sanctions lifted, Tripoli was back on the international political itinerary, allowing British Prime Minister Tony Blair, among other leading figures, to drop in at Col Gaddafi’s famously luxurious Bedouin tent erected in his palace grounds. Mr Blair visited in 2004 and again in 2007.

Inspired by events in neighbouring Tunisia and Egypt and sparked by the arrest of a Libyan human rights campaigner, protests against Col Gaddafi’s four-decade rule began in February. Starting in the east, where he staged his coup more than 40 years earlier, they spread across the country. Col Gaddafi remained uncompromising and vowed to crush the rebellion. However, this was more than peaceful civilians protesting (despite NATO claims that their air campaign was to protect civilians). It was an aramed rebelion supported by NATO and Western countries along with some Gulf countries like Qatar and UAE. NATO gave full air backing for Libyan rebels. That was – perhaps – the reason the rebels succeeded in austing Col gadhafi from power. He was brutally killed bu rebel forces who captured hin on 20 October 2011 in Sirt, Libya, his home town and birthplace.

Those were some of the events the world noticed of him. However, when we look at his achievements and policies, the picture is much more colourful indeed.
