Qadhafi. Threats. Loss. His capture never cripples the world's fear of retaliation. Neither does his loss from the game spell the craft of peace and harmony to Libyans and to the other Arab countries.

His capture never cripples the world’s fear of retaliation. Neither does his loss from the game spell the craft of peace and harmony to Libyans and to other Arab countries. Nor does his death liberate Libyans from hunger, abuse, human rights violation, and worst, war.

Mu’ammar Qadhafi is no different from us who wanted freedom and advancement from the status quo. He also aims to live, at least, in peace and contentment. Like every child in the universe, he dreams of becoming someone of discipline and substance. He never quits; not even his loss warrants him to quit, after all.

In this distrustful world where everyone else is a player, Qadhafi plays no conventional to the point of becoming himself an unbecoming to the eyes of some leaders, soothsayers, war mongrels, and to the US empire.



In his attempt to change Libya outright, he persuaded all of us to his “Green Book” that retaliated the struggles of the masses and the beauty of equality among us: the world, the rich, the poor—the marginalized.

Although he spared the rod through massive violence to quash every possible opposition to his rule, he could have become like our great, great grandfathers that institutionalized discipline at its hardest core (at least in films and in poetry).

Oppositions have undeniable interests—good or bad, potent or impotent, democratic or discriminatory. Nobody could totally prove the legitimacy of objectives of those perpetrators that killed Qadhafi, mercilessly!

History may never repeat itself. It may just change and develop. Human beings may learn not any lesson very well. Leaders maybe greed still. Qadhafi and his perpetrators perhaps, categorically, are just one—united by a blind loyalty, divided by self-interest.

Why not give the demands of those who wanted independence or autonomy? Why not give them the best for themselves according to what they thought best for themselves? Why not let them be as they wanted themselves the best they could be? It is the true foundation of democracy, the flesh and bones of liberation, the meaning of freedom we always clamor, and the paragon of justice we long, isn’t it?

Qadhafi’s demands are by category not only for himself, the world knew it. He always tries to do things, “awkward” as cynics may see it, to save his people from the false prophets of democracy, from that horny and egoistic peace, and fake brotherhood. Yet, there could be one deep reason for his loss Libyans know it clear and deafening that onlookers never knew it all.

Qadhafi’s fate can happen to all leaders in the world. It can happen to you. We always ask about the cause, yet we always fail at pointing it out. ▲
