Why is Gaddafi remembered as a pan-Africanist?

He only adopted pan-Africanism after his pan-Arabist ambitions fell flat. Yet, most discussions about him focus on his pan-Africanism.

    Because his Pan-African advocacy lead to the creation of the African Union, while his Pan-Arab advocacy failed to create a union with Egypt or Tunisia

      The Organisation of African Unity has already been a thing for decades before and the Treaty of Abuja creating the Economic Union is also older than his advocacy. He jumps on bandwagons, tries to take em over and when he fails he bails.

      He never stopped being an anti-colonialist. He just stopped advocating for Arab unity when he saw the Arab world trend towards conservative capitalism

        No, he stopped going after the Arab unity thing when all the Arab nations told him to fuck off. And he quit on the United States of Africa idea after the African countries told him to fuck off.

        He was a flamboyant failure.

          He stopped going after Arab unity because
          1. Sadat made peace with Israel
          2. Tunisia didn't want to share power

          United States of Africa won't have worked, but the African Union is much more sensible.

    Because it's easy bait for tankies. They'll suck the dick of anything that goes against American interests, no matter the actual intent or result.

          How can you still be locked in such a cold war rhetoric? The rest of the world barely cared back then and certainly don't give a crap now. On the contrary in the case of Gaddafi it was discussed from a european point of view, necessity or not, consequences, etc, but not from a east/west antic point of view. For example here many think the french president wanted to kill an embarassing witness.
