    Hi guys,
    I'm currently trying to collect primary and secondary research for my EPQ on the topic of the 2011 NATO led intervention of Libya.
    What I want to ask is several questions, if you would be able to reply that would be the most helpful thing ever! Thank you so much (if you would be able to say your age range in the comment too that would be great!)

    1. Are you aware of the NATO intervention of Libya in 2011?
    2. If you said yes; what is your understanding of the intervention?
    3. If you said no; have you heard of the name Muammar Gadhaffi? If so, what is your knowledge of him as a leader?
    4. What do you, consider to be the definition of 'justified'?

    5. If you know of the NATO intervention, do you believe that the intervention was justified?


    Thank you so much, if you know of any sources that would be good to contact, that would also be muchly appreicated!!

    Yes.

    Gadaffi wanted to introduce an african gold backed currency and that really annoyed the US because it would chip away at their racket of forcing other countries (especially middle eastern) to hold huge reserves of US$. This is the way that the US manages to control the countries around the world - by forcing all of the national banks to hold a huge percentage of their reserves in US$, meaning that if the US goes down - all the countries (with reserves in US$) in the world are going down with it. Protection through Mutually Assured Destruction.
    More sinisterly, it also meant that the US had the power to hurt itself and cause other countries to suffer. There's a saying: The US sneezes, and the whole world catches a cold. It's basically that but a hundred times over.
    Gadaffi's plan of wanting to move african and middle eastern countries on to a gold-backed currency, meant that people who wanted to buy oil from the mdidle east/africa would have to hold onto less US$, and more of this new gold-backed currency.
    This would effectively mean that the US would lose its power and come crashing down while the middle east and africa survives.
    As a show of force and to stop any country from even daring to think to even try and do the same the came down hard on Gadaffi under whatever excuse they could think of - not even bothering to get the CIA to find imaginary WMDs or anything. And just like that, they turned the richest democracy in Africa into an ISIS haven.

    I would consider justified to mean that the action would serve the interests of the citizens of the NATO member states, and this clearly doesn't do so. Gadaffi said in his own words that Libya acted as a buffer to stop the refugees coming into Europe. His death sparked the European refugee crisis. I also feel that in the long run, moving off of the devil that is fiat currency is a good thing.
