His 42 years of reign of autocracy is over. Occupying the state power through a bloodless coup, he established himself as a mighty power of the Arad world. He portrayed himself as an anti- west leader , a propagonist of Arab interst and a forruneer for African unity.
Sometomes he supported or sponsored terrorist activites to achieve his targets and he had to embrace economic sanctions to fridging of the assests, financial penalty and political isolation.
He led a life of his own style, prefering tents to live than living in the strongly build palaces. He used to shift his locations, prefer female body guards than males for their commitment to the boss and used to wear traditional arabian dresses.
Only once i did follow his speech about 2 years back and that was in the general assebly of United Nations. He demanded for reshaping of the world body and wanted representations of the diffent regions in the world body. His speech was unnecessary lengthy and disorganised.
He had alinieted himself from his people. Any form of dissent was suppressed for long time.
He was grommming his son Saif for the next state leadership. Outside world only very recently could heard the voice of people in Libya after the people upsurge in Tunesia and Egypt. Not paying heed to the peope’s voice Gaddafi tried to brutally suppressed it. He used tanks and planes to kill the people on the streets. NATO and USA came in support of the people.
They provided the experts and ammunitions, promoted the cause and boosted the morale of the fighters in many ways.
People had the victory and expressed their joy. The fall of Gaddafi is also a victory for NATO and its allies- the thin smile on the lips of President Surkozi tells all when he was fisrt asked to comment on the death of Gaddafi.
NTC ( National Transitional Council) that coordinated the mass resistance decided to resign. The interim authority will hold a free and fair election by 8 months.
Establishment of a well represented dmocratic government only would repay the sacrifice of the Libyan people . Otherwise a dictated government will serve the purpose of the big brothers only.
