Well Mussolini didn't build the river you Moron,of course Gaddafi constructed the man made river and he didn't let western Financial jackals get involved,today Libya is a basket case,i wouldn't advise going to Bengazi you could end up with no head,in your case I don't think we would notice the difference.

The man made river was modeled on a 40 year duration of the aquifer, it could go for 20 at full extraction or 200.
Your link doesn't mention it , but that's what I've heard.
It really doesn't make sense to use it on that scale.
And involves Libya's neighbours.
A lot of people were happy to see it get bombed by NATO.
If in fact it does deplete the resource for Egypt in particular whose population is immense compared to Libya it would be a sad day for the region.
Why use that particular water to grown crops , when south of the Sahara there is plenty of everything just needs investment.
Gadaffi made a mistake there I think.

What a croc of crap. The Africans do not know or even try to learn how to conserve any energy, humanity or resources. They will use up every square inch of resources without thinking about tomorrow. They kill each other for the sake of a few more acres or bags of wheat, Sudan for example. Africa has far too many dictators or tyrants to make a go of it. It is necessary for the Western world to step in to teach, maybe not rule but to teach how to conserve and prosper. The birth rate is out of control and no one is looking how to feed them so they got their hands out again to feed even more. They have sold most of their resourses to the West or China for a small stake in the pie, where they should have used consultants to gain more for the people. The governments in most of Africa, not all, tend to rape the land and keep the wealth for themselves much like Libya and Syria, so it is necessary for someone to come to the rescue of the disorganized citizens to prevent the genocides that have been going on.
Africa built the greatest civilizations ever known to history while you dogs were still living in cold dark dank caves and eating raw meat. Now you what us to believe that Neanderthal had delicious recipies for cooking over camp fires. LOL Inside the caves... LOL Everything in terms of basic scientific knowledge originated in Africa. Thank you. The only advantage the west has is more brutality and more savage than anyone else. You are superior in military and war making technology and that is ALL you are superior in. All we have to do is continue to waste our resources in Africa and waste for the west to blow itself up with nuclear bombs. How many goats do you think you can kill by nuking the Sahara Desert, idiot? Those nukes are good for killing Europeans and some Asians as in Nagasaki and Hiroshima. But they do not scare us NONE in Africa.

The population of Africa did not increase for 300 years due to the slave trade. Now the lying Zionistic dogs want us to think that the Arabs did damage with their slaving activity. But Imagine 300 years of depopulation. The Arabs did not do that. They traded slaves back and forth inside Africa. But the west took our human resources out of Africa and used it to build up the greatest superpower in North America. And they still have not compensated us for the use of our labor. Besides, they can never repay us because half of the victims of the slave trade died en-route to this country. You can never repay that loss of human life, especially not on the massive scale. I am talking about hundreds of million brutally murdered. And they want to blame the Arabs.

You are a pro-zionist lying fool. There is enough water under the Sahara Desert to last into the indefinite future. It is so massive that it is a waste of time to even speculate about it drying up. The thing about Gaddafis' project is it enables Libya to produce enough food to feed the whole continent of Africa. That is a huge competition against western farmers. Right now, Libya imports nearly half its food from western Europe. So, you can see their real motives for attacking Qaddafi...and Nkrumah...and Mugabe...and Abdel Nasser...and every African leaders who contributes to real African development

Here is a map showing how much water we have in North Africa. Mind you that this does not include desalination of seawater and recycling ground water and rainfall. Also, once irrigation systems are in place. they will produce moisture in the air that will increase rainfall. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment... . Africa is the closest land to the sun being on the Equator. But once technology conquers desalination, not only will the sun provide a huge source of energy, it will also deliver more and more water to reclaim the desert. Nobody wants Europe. and We dang certain do not need Europe or Europeans.

Funny the historians seem to have a slightly different take on the events.

Historians estimate that between 650 and 1900, 10 to 18 million peoples were enslaved by Arab slave traders and taken from Africa across the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Sahara desert.

You best re-write history quick.

The white man to this very day still eats raw meat. If you think I am lying, you to any gown under steak house and order a "rare" steak. "Rare" is his clever way of saying "raw". I am a former cook in fancy European restaurants. I know all about neanderthal cuisine. What they do is take a piece of frozen meat. They thaw it out so that they will not break their teeth biting down into frozen meat. And them they eat it raw.

B-word, as I just said. The "Arab slave trade" was nothing but internal exchanges of slaves among Africans and Arabs. Furthermore, the vast majority of those slaves were not Africans. Most of them were Asians and Europeans imported to Africa. The white man's slave trade was far worse and a complete opposite. It took human resources OUT OF AFRICA and used those resources to build up the white man's property. In the process, they murdered half the slaves in transport before they could even be employed to do any work at all.

The "Arab slave trade" did not take even one human being out of Africa.

Now go tell you pro-zionist lying so-called "historians" to kiss my butt and go jump into the lake of fire.

I stopped reading when it said the amount of underground water is the equivalent of 75 meters deep across Libya , Chad and Algeria..
Crazy shit.
Australia has got aquifers being still fed , some from New Guinea but we was using them up , now we got heavy restrictions.
If I was an Egyptian I would be asking the very good General al-Sisi to invade Libya , restore order and plug them fu ckern holes up.
Google up scientific references and you'll find out , and the other thing is its good quality water, too good for irrigation if your not desperate.

I have not read that part yet. That would be crazy. Besides, it is besides the point. The point is the water is there and it is located in the dried areas, the deserts. What Africa needs is a Pan-Africanist system to irrigate the land. So, for example, if a certain area runs dry in the next 100 years or so, by that time there ought to be a new source of water. This requires socialist planning. The ideal is to maintain whatever amount of water that is needed or will be needed. While the current supply of water exists, the increased revenue that using it will produce in the economy must be used to finance new sources such as seawater desalination. What I have not seem so far is any studies done to determine the impact of constant irrigation in the atmosphere. I would think that irrigation would increase rainfall. Plus, energy from the sun needs to be used to desalinate seawater and deliver it to where it is needed.

Basically what I am saying it that the one thing we need more than anything else is a clear ideology based on scientific socialism. And that is the one thing that the enemy preachers against the most.

The Aussie model Is exactly what Africa does not want or need. We cannot rely on westerners to do this. It must be done by Africans who think in terms of socialism. If you think like most westerners, Aussies, you will use the water up and not have any backup system in place such as desalination and long term scientific planning. That does not work in the west. Why should it work in Africa? Believe it or not, we are sick and tired of the white man interfering in our affairs.

It is only a small start of the compr4ehensive scientific socialist scheme. We need to plan irrigation 1000 years ahead of time.

Then they argue about whose lie is closer to the truth.

As a historian, every fact of history needs to be verified as closely as possible to the documentation of history. If you do not have hard cold data, your duty needs to be to go and look for it. Find some data. Research. In the claim where there are 15 million slaves that Arabs had, who said that? What is it based on? Is there any data? Has any actually studies be done? More likely it is a wild guess. And the motives behind the guess cannot be trusted. Their motive is nothing but propaganda. The intent behind that lie is to divert attention away from the crimes that the white man committed against Africa. Failing to do, they will argue "well, y'all did it to us." But that is also a lie. Africans had white slaves. That is true. But we used them more as luxuries, concubines and prostitutes. We did not use them to dig up trees in the wilderness and plant huge cash crops for which they were never paid. There are no plantation systems in Africa. Therefore, there was no plantation slavery worth mentioning. There may have a few. But not enough to matter in the scheme of things. Certainly nobody was ever used to clear forests to make farmlands. That never happened. if you think Africans bought 15 million white slaves girls, think again. Every rich man had at least four wives to begin with. What did they need white girls for? It did not happen. It is simply a lie.
