"After Me, The Jihad," Gaddafi Tried To Warn The West, But Nobody Listened

Submitted by Dan Sanchez via TheAntiMedia.org,

Before the French Revolution and its Reign of Terror, Louis XV predicted, “After me, the Deluge.” Before being overthrown, Libya’s secular dictator tried to warn the West of a new Reign of Terror, essentially foretelling, “After me, the Jihad.”

This was disclosed with the recent release of phone conversations from early 2011 between Muammar Gaddafi and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The West was then gearing up to use unrest in Libya as a pretext for military intervention and regime change. Gaddafi desperately tried to convey through Blair the folly of such a war, pleading that he was trying to defend Libya from Al Qaeda, which had set up base in the country. He said:

“They have managed to get arms and terrify people. people can’t leave their homes… It’s a jihad situation. They have arms and are terrorising people in the street.”

Gaddafi’s warning went unheeded, and NATO, led by the U.S. and France, launched an air war that toppled Libya’s government. Later that year, Gaddafi (himself a brutal oppressor, like all heads of state) was forced out of a drainage pipe, and then beaten, sodomized, and shot in the street by a mob. His corpse was then draped over the hood of a car.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who had done more than any single person to advance the Libya War, was informed of Gaddafi’s death while on camera. Fancying herself a modern Caesar, she chortled, “We came, we saw, he died!

Since then, Gaddafi has been proven tragically right. As Libya descended into civil war and failed-state chaos, jihadi groups connected to Al Qaeda conquered much of the country. Libya underwent the same American “liberation” that had already befallen Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia — and would soon be visited on Syria and Yemen.

Shortly after Gaddafi’s overthrow, some of the now-rampant jihadis helped the CIA run guns from Benghazi to fellow jihadis in Syria.

Benghazi had been a rebel stronghold. The Obama administration claimed a Gaddafi-perpetrated “genocide” was imminent in that city, using that claim as the chief justification for the war. There was zero indication of such an impending atrocity. But there was ample evidence of an Al Qaeda presence in Benghazi, as Gaddafi tried to tell Blair, saying that members had “…managed to set up local stations and in Benghazi have spread the thoughts and ideas of al Qaeda.”

After the regime change, on September 11, 2012, the jihadis turned on their U.S. allies in Benghazi, sacked the U.S. diplomatic compound, and murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Now ISIS has spread throughout Libya. Just days ago, ISIS perpetrated a truck bombing that killed dozens at a Libyan police academy in Sirte, a former Gaddafi stronghold. Indeed, Gaddafi informed Blair that jihadis had “attacked police stations” back in 2011.

Gaddafi further warned Blair:

“They want to control the Mediterranean and then they will attack Europe.”

And ISIS has, indeed, been battling to take control of Libya’s main oil ports in recent weeks. The group has also long been planning to use Libya as a base from which to launch attacks on nearby southern Europe. ISIS did strike Europe recently, most famously in Paris.

And it was not just Gaddafi personally who had been ringing such alarms to the Western powers thirsting for his blood. His intelligence officers produced reports demonstrating that heavy weapons being sent to the Libyan opposition, with NATO approval and Qatari financing, were being funneled to militants with ties to Al Qaeda. At least one of those reports was even prepared in English to facilitate its transmission to key members of Congress via U.S. intelligence.

Yet, there was no need for the West to rely on the Libyan regime for information about the jihadi threat. Indeed, as emails recently released by the State Department reveal, Hillary Clinton’s own right-hand man had informed her before Gaddafi’s overthrow that rebels were committing war crimes, and that “…radical/terrorist groups such as the Libyan Fighting Groups and Al Qa’ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) are infiltrating the NLC and its military command.”

As Brad Hoff reports, that same email discloses that, very early in the Libyan crisis, “British, French, and Egyptian special operations units were training Libyan militants along the Egyptian-Libyan border, as well as in Benghazi suburbs.”

They would soon be joined by U.S. special forces and the CIA.

The war in Libya that Hillary Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, and Samantha Power of the National Security Council were driving toward was so predictably a fiasco-to-come that, behind the backs of the Amazon Warriors Three, America’s top generals conspired with leftie peacenik Congressman Dennis Kucinich to try to arrange a peaceful resolution to the crisis. But the war-making diplomats triumphed over the diplomacy-making soldiers. Hillary buffaloed the brass and got her war.

Abundant warnings of a Jihadi Deluge continued after the regime change, as well. As Nancy Youssef wrote at The Daily Beast:

“…many celebrated Libya as a success story of limited U.S. intervention despite obvious signs there of looming instability. The British consulate in Benghazi came under an attempted assassination attack the previous summer and other nations pulled out amid rising violence. The U.S. consulate in Benghazi suffered an improvised bomb attack around the time of the strike on the British. And there were early signs of a rising jihadist presence in the eastern city. In Tripoli, Sufi shrines were destroyed. (…)


“In the months leading up to the [2012 Benghazi] attack, flags belonging to a jihadist group, Ansar al Sharia, appeared in Benghazi. Ansar al Sharia members also controlled security around certain government buildings, including the hospital that would try to save Stevens.


“In that ensuing power vacuum, jihadists began claiming territory, making it difficult for the moderate government to control the country. By 2013, Libya’s oil production all but stopped as the nation plunged toward civil war and a state led by two rival governments on opposite ends of the country. Efforts to create a unity government have so far faltered. Benghazi, the birthplace of the 2011 uprising, became a terrorist haven. And today, many Libyans yearn for the return of Gaddafi, however dictatorial his regime was, because of the security that came with him.”

Conservative politicos have long strained to use Benghazi to torpedo Hillary’s bid for the presidency. But their efforts are crippled by their own fundamental agreement with Hillary’s militarism. They support the general policy of employing jihadis to overthrow secular dictators (not only in Libya, but Syria too). So they limit themselves to whining about Hillary’s security measures.

The true Benghazi scandal indicts not just Hillary, but the entire Western power elite, whose wars have, as Gaddafi warned, flooded the world with a Jihadi Deluge and installed a postdiluvian Reign of Terror over us all.

"Pompeo dug deep, saying to Clinton, “That’s over 600 requests.” When Clinton accepted that she had not received any of those requests, Pompeo referenced longtime personal Clinton aide and friend Sidney Blumenthal. “Mr. Blumenthal wrote you 150 emails. It appears from the materials that we’ve read that all of those reached your desk.” Pompeo continued to grill Clinton about the reasoning as to why so many initial requests for additional security were not received."

Correction:  They have sacrificed themselves for greed and inhuman agendas.  Let's be clear.  The fact these brave, loyal people have died having thought they are fighting for "freedom" makes no difference to the world that is left despite perfectly honorable and noble intent on their part.  Bless their souls.

When young people with their lives ahead of them stop putting themselves in front of other young people's weapons, maybe something will change but that's not the way the matrix rolls buddy.

Respectfully, IMHO

True constitutional conservatives would have never intervened in the Mideast. It takes the base criminality of progressives for intervention to happen.

To have a crime, you must first have progressives.

Go easy there cowboy. Aren’t you asking too much of us—of the young?

Let me elaborate my point a little bit:

American heartland is fast becoming as blinkered as the wilds of Afghanistan. 44% believe Jesus will return and that God literally promised the land of Israel to the Jews.

Children should not learn biology and evolution. 50% have ‘highly-negative’ view of people that don’t believe in God. 70% believe that US President needs to be ‘strongly’ religious.

Question about Public Policies gets to be framed in terms appropriate to a theocracy. 72% believe in Angels.

Ignorance in this degree, concentrated in both the head and the belly of a lumbering superpower, is now a problem for the entire world” — The End of Faith, page 230.

Brazil is not the topic and not an empire. I was commenting about your youth statement. The point that I was making is that, once an individual is either brainwashed (pathologically naive/heavily religious) or indoctrinated (pathological allergic to reality and bad news/educated on lies) how do you expect any critical thinking to come out of any of these individuals?

It won’t happen because the high mental faculty was not develop for that. Stupidity is the hallmark of capitalism.


“The man whose whole life is spent in performing a few simple operations, of which the effects are perhaps always the same, or very nearly the same, has no occasion to exert his understanding or to exercise his invention in finding out expedients for removing difficulties which never occur. He naturally loses, therefore, the habit of such exertion, and generally becomes as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human creature to become. ” Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations, 1776.

Adam Smith was a smart guy; however, this general observation seems unsuitable for comprehensive use, because it doesn't consider the unseen; for example,  a free man can also choose to perform a few simple operations his entire life in order to preserve cherished time for critical thinking. Perhaps the 80/20 guideline is universal?

SunRise: free man can also choose to perform a few simple operations his entire life in order to preserve cherished time for critical thinking.


Or, a free man/group that own their means of production will be obliged/inclined to use both sides of their ‘flexible’ brain. Artists and musicians are very good at it. Religion and capitalism work the opposite. Question religion and capitalism is poison to both of them, because anyone with their head screw to their bodies would know that both are frauds. Both are built on lies and deceptions.

You are ignorant when it comes to capitalism.  Free-Market capitalism is the free exchange of value for benefit of consenting parties.  Your view of capitlism of is the american system of cronyism and collusion of governemtn and business.  That is actually more akin to fascism.  We have had very little free market capitlaism in America for the last century.  Even in its eprverted state, however, it still produces enough wealth top improve the lives of people the world over.   The only problem with capitalism is that with the great welath that is enjoyed by the greater masses comes great complacency and ignorance.  People stop paying attention to what the scumbags in government are doing when they all have flat screens. 


And Adam smith referred to the ignorance of the working man while alluding to the systems of protectionism in british businesses.   mainly the barber and the blacksmith.  He was making the point that the common man does not have time to watch what the scum bag politicians are doing becuase he evdeavors to make a living, for profit I might add.


Now the system of protectism by luddites and modern unions shares more of an affection towardds marxism .  Remember that the end reslut of marxism is corruption in the govenrment elite.  You need to read some history on the failures of marxism before you criticize capitlaism.  it would also help you to read some Bastiat, Freidman, and Hazlitt because you should understand that the reason that Brazil is such a shithole is because it is a corrupt socialist/fascist state.

We have some disturbing/catastrophic issues coming up. When the stupid/delusional/indoctrinated find out that the world will be running out of oil and energy, starting by the end of this decade, Trump/Hillary and the return of Jesus are the wrong paradigm/models.

"Isms is nice propaganda for some unsophisticated Hedger, but it doesn’t fly by me."

Pronouncing yourself as being above "some unsophisticated Hedger" is exactly the kind of snobbery I have come to expect from someone engaged in protecting their particular ism.

In your case it's your faux elitism which is in the process of collapsing all around you and you're apparently just unsophisticated enough to not recognize it.

The goal is to get to the bottom of the issues. To understand these at the best possible way even with all the lies and misinformation purposely propagate to confuse.

Labeling is a waste of time. Totally irrelevant in my opinion.

Connecting the dots, not an easy task because of all the lies and biases, should be the goal. Also, because connecting the dots are much more interesting than be caught by ones biases.

I am not the smartest guy in the room when it comes to this "blame the Jews" stuff.  I still believe their are plenty of average yob Jews about, just like the rest of us, and you'll get better results from blaming the richest bankers instead of blaming Jews.  Besides, there are plenty of Gentiles who are guilty.  Should we let them off just because they are NOT Jews?

Having said that, I have also noticed an amazing difference between posters who can NAME names, and posters who can only CALL names.  But for some reason, they seem to have taken the day off so it's left to me to try give you a small peek at the grain of truth in the stereo-type.

I still say, "Blame the guilty.  Don't blame everyone who vaguely looks similar to the guilty" but anyways, to see what all the fuss is about ...

Start here:

History ain't what it used to be. Mass media and globalization changed everything. What used to be localized games played by sociopathic families and occasionally the tribe has now turned into a winner take all game.

Jews have been carefully crafted to win it all, crossbreeding with the most successful races on the planet and with their inherent tribal nepotism turned up to 11 by WW2. They are the very definition of a fifth column, they see the white boogeyman preparing another shoah everywhere and will do anything at all to stop it. Bit of a self fulfilling prophecy in that respect.

TIMBO Anti-Castro's picture

Agreed that religion does not define the bad actors. 

however, to answer youer question, Hollywood is indeed run by Jews and they certainly control a very important medium of information. 

For example, is it possible that the palestine situation is not as one sided as the west and the sheep are told?

Let's start at Constantine... not a jew and not sympathetic... by the way, I'm going to leave the East, Austrailia and South America out of this until the last few hundred years.  The last Mongul conquest of Arabia, not jews... The Cruscades, not jews.  The Italian bankers that started modern banking in the Renaissance, not jews.  The origins of the first central Bank of England, not jews.  The east India Trading company, not jews.  Napoleon, not a jew.  Carnagie, Rockerfellar, Morgan and the rest... not jews.

Seek_Truth's picture

The modern banking system originated in ancient Babylon, and was carried to the ends of the earth by the "jews" after they were released in the diaspora which followed - not Italian bankers.

No- it's not all "jews" that are to blame, but those who love money- the trillionaires and billionaires of the world who control the banking, commercial, and policitical realms through the corrupting influence of bribery, lobbying, blackmail and extortion.

there was no usury in babylon, the jews were slaves until released by cyrus.... and i'm pretty sure those characteristics you describe cross all boundries of man.  are you calling moses a piece of shit?

Seek_Truth's picture

Cyrus, King of Persia (which conquered Babylon) was very accommodating to the "jews". If you do a websearch, you'll find it easily verified that modern banking originated in Babylon, and was carried to other nations by means of "jews."

Where did I say anything about Moses?

Moses was a Yahwehist, not a "jew."

There's a big difference between the two.

DO WHAT?!     now, you are suggesting that the evil jews are only from the babylon slavery and moses wasn't a jew?   seriously?  i'm dying to hear how you explain away how jesus or mary weren't really jews?

Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit- that's clear. 

JESUS WAS NOT A JEW- by Benjamin H. Freedman, Jewish Historian - Researcher - Scholar.
From "Common Sense", p. 2-1-53 and 5-1-5:




The word "jew" did not exist until the 18th century.

"Iudaeus", from which "jew"  is translated, means "a dweller in Judea", whether they be Gentile or not.

Through "sematic change", the word "jew" in modern use has come to mean "a practicer of Judaism."

Judaism is based on the Babylonian Talmud, which Jesus Christ rejected: "Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition (TALMUD) that you have handed down. And you do many things like that." - Mark 7:13

Moses, Joseph, Mary and Jesus, were therefore NOT "jews" (BABYLONIAN TALMUDISTS), but, rather Yahwehists (TORAH FOLLOWERS).
