As third world countries go, Libya’s $14,400 per capita (in US dollars) is quite high. It’s actually higher than can be found in Argentina Mexico or Venezuela three second world countries. Egypt’s per capita income is $5,400, less than half of Libya’s.
These numbers can explain what is going on in Libya and why America should not be trying to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi.
Last winter when the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) realized it could finally force Mubarak out and take Egypt over it made its move. The MB incited crowds of dimwits to become violent and destabilize Mubarak’s government. This forced Mubarak to flee and left a vacuum of power in Cairo. As soon as he was gone the Muslim Brotherhood applied for and got recognition as a legitimate political party, something they had been denied for years.
With this new respectability the MB has been given a free hand to arrange the necessary steps to insure they are “democratically” elected in Egypt’s September Parliamentary elections.
Once the MB is running Egypt it will have a modern Army Navy and Air Force stocked with sophisticated American and European weapons (purchased with American taxpayer money.) and even a seat in the U.N.. Their next step is to take over Libya; but why?
Last spring American Intelligence components reported the financial condition of the Gaddafi government to be very rosy. The International Monetary Fund estimated his gold supplies at more than 143 tons of gold worth $6.5 billion.
The high per capita income of Libya makes it the best place to live for the average Muslim in the “Arab Street.” It’s more than double what Egyptians make. Why then would Libyans be revolting against Gaddafi? The answer is they are not. The “rebels” being portrayed as Jeffersonian democrats by the Leftist media are not Libyans, they are, to a large degree international brigades of al Qaeda fighters acting as surrogates for the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.
Once the MB has toppled Gaddafi and taken his gold they will have the military strength and money to attack and destroy Israel. That is where all of this is going and where it has been pointed from day one. This is why America’s interests are best served by Gaddafi’s ultimate victory.
