Jacinta Ryan a Tripoli invasa e devastata

In giro per tripoli messa a ferro e fuoco

di Jacinta Ryan, per LibyanFreePress

Sono andata a fare un giro in città!
Ero partita per aiutare alcuni miei amici e colleghi al Rixos, per collaborare ad evacuarli e andare all’hotel Corinthia
Ma sono arrivata tardi e la CROCE ROSSA li aveva già portati al Corinthia: erano tutti fuori..

Facce stravolte, appena mi hanno visto mi hanno abbracciata, allucinati! Pensate che Thierry e Mahdi sono stati minacciati da altri giornalisti!
Gli unici giornalisti che ho salutato sono stati quelli di Telesur e uno di CNN, che ho salutato a denti stretti.
Il tragitto che ho fatto, l’ho fatto facendo strade normali, e ci siamo spostati anche sul lungomare.
L’autostrada era stata chiusa, bloccata dalle barricate dei ribelli.
Tutta la città, a parte il quartiere di Buslim e  l’hotel Rixos, è sotto il controllo dei ribelli: ci sono check points ogni 100 mt, resti di combattimenti dappertutto e di barricate. Avevano usato containers della MSC, macchine, auto, alberi, ecc., per creare barricate.
Ci sono bandiere monarchiche dappertutto, dipinde su tutti i muri!
La città è veramente un campo di battaglia! Una desolazione!
I ribelli sono tutti ragazzini giovani, su pick up con artiglieria leggera e pesante! Con loro ci sono pochi adulti. Carne da macello. Che pena mi fanno.
Loro hanno fatto questa che credono sia una “rivoluzione” perchè vogliono il cambiamento, vogliono belle strade, lavori ben pagati che erano riservati soltanto ai lealisti, vogliono discoteche, alcool, vogliono una vita come da noi, cioè consumistica e aspirano a quelle inutili e deleterie porcherie che col governo di Tripoli erano limitate.
Chi dirà loro:  “grazie, puoi tornare a casa e a scuola, ora prendiamo noi il potere e tu puoi andare a zappare la terra”?
Il problema è che questi “ribelli” di lavorare sul serio e duro non ne hanno proprio voglia: è più facile fare i “rivoluzionari”, sparare in aria e beccarsi la paga da mercenari dagli alleati Nato. Qualcuno spera in un posto nel futuro esercito o polizia, per continuare a fare nulla di costruttivo. Perchè oltre che distruggere e uccidere senza scrupolo chi si oppone alla loro “rivoluzione petroliera”, Nato-Alqaedista, non sono capaci a fare altro.
Hanno al momento il potere, controllano ogni auto e ogni portabagaglio.
Per poter andare in giro tranquillamente io e mio marito abbiamo dovuto accettare un compromesso con un vicino di casa, anti-Gheddafi (ma non “rivoluzionario” fanatico).
Lo so non è bello, ma volevamo vedere con i nostri occhi la situazione in città: sono andata in giro con questo amico, a cui non piace il governo libico, perchè ho amici su entrambi i fronti.
Prima ai check points ti lasciavano passare se avevi la bandiera verde, ora ti lasciano passare se hai quella a strisce monarchica.
Dicono: Allah Akbir, cioè Allah è grande!
Vorrei però sapere che cosa c’entra Allah in questa guerra!
La città è attraversata in lungo e largo da migliaia di pick up con sopra ragazzini armati. Poche auto con “tripolini” con la bandiera monarchica, solo alcuni giovani per strada. Gli adulti sono maggiormente chiusi in casa. I veri tripolini non supportano questi invasori.
Sembra una città fantasma. Che tristezza…..
Negli occhi dei ragazzini “ribelli” c’è tanta gioia, tanta stanchezza, tanta speranza…..
Sperano che questo sia il momento di inizio per una era di libertà, di ricchezza, di….tutto!
Non si rendono conto che tutto ciò, a differenza dei loro vicini algerini, marocchini, tunisini, egiziani, loro l’avevano già, o erano sul punto di averlo più pienamente appena le commesse e i contratti, stipulati con varie nazioni in questi ultimi anni, avessero dato i loro frutti.
Ben lo sapevano i petrolmonarchi e signori del petrolio e delle banche occidentali che hanno provocato, finanziato, armato e coperto (con bombardamenti intensi che hanno fatto migliaia di morti civili libici) questa sporca “misione umanitaria”, per rubare le risorse energetiche libiche e stoppare i progetti di Gheddafi di sviluppo per la Libia e l’Africa intera.
Gli adulti di Tripoli sono quasi tutti chiusi in casa, alcuni sono fuori accanto ai ragazzini, molti impiegati ai check points.
Mi sembrano tanti garibaldini, poi elegantemente trombati dal Re Piemontese e dai suoi ufficiali massoni.
Prima erano in piazza quelli con le bandiere verdi e in casa nascosti  quelli con le bandiere a strisce, ora è esattamente il contrario!
In ogni caso in strada non ci sono FIUMI DI PERSONE, come succedeva prima!
Banche e uffici sono tutti chiusi. Inegozi sono chiusi al 90%
Quei pochi che supportano questi teppisti armati, che stanno devastando e saccheggiando la Libia, consegnandola incaprettata nelle mani dei vampiri petrolieri euro-yankee, davvero credono che gli uomini che comandano a Bengasi, i quali erano stati emarginati precedentemente dal governo di Gheddafi perchè ladri e corrotti, porteranno loro libertà e benessere più di quanto non ce ne fosse prima.
L’ignoranza e la creduloneria, insieme all’avidità e alla corruzione degli animi, fanno le stesse vittime ovunque nel mondo. E ovunque nel mondo è la stessa organizzazione di uomini di potere e d’affari che spreme e sfrutta il genere umano come polli d’allevamento.

Gli Squadroni della Morte di “Al Qaeda-Nato ” a Tripoli

MASSACRO NATO A TRIPOLI: L’OPERAZIONE ALBA DELLE SIRENE SEGNA L’ASSALTO DEI RIBELLI DELLE SQUADRE DELLA MORTE

Thierry Meyssan – Global ResearchTraduzione di FFP per LibyanFreePress

Tripoli, in Libia, 22 agosto 2011, 01:00


Sabato sera, alle 8, quando l’ora dell’Iftar segnava la fine del digiuno del Ramadan, il comando della NATO ha lanciato la sua “Operazione Sirena” contro la Libia.

Le Sirene sono stati gli altoparlanti delle moschee, che sono stati utilizzati per lanciare l’appello di Al Qaeda alla rivolta contro il governo di Gheddafi. Immediatamente le cellule dormienti dei ribelli di Bengasi sono entrati in azione. Questi sono piccoli gruppi con grande agilità di movimento, i quali hanno condotto attacchi multipli. I combattimenti, durante la notte, hanno provocato circa 350 morti e 3.000 feriti.

La situazione si è calmata un pò nel corso della domenica.

Poi una nave da guerra della NATO si è ancorata appena al largo della costa di Tripoli, fornendo armi pesanti e uomini delle forze jihadiste di Al Qaeda, le quali erano dirette da ufficiali della NATO.

I combattimenti sono ripresi durante la notte. Ci sono stati intensi scontri a fuoco. Droni della NATO e bombardamenti aerei sono continuati in tutte le direzioni. Elicotteri della NATO hanno mitragliato i civili per le strade, per aprire la via ai jihadisti.

In serata un corteo di auto che trasportavano ufficiali governativi è stata attaccata. Il convoglio ha trovato rifugio al Rixos Hotel, dove ha sede la stampa straniera. La NATO non osa bombardare l’hotel per evitare di uccidere i suoi giornalisti. Tuttavia l’hotel, che è quello che mi ospita al momento, è tutt’ora l’obiettivo di un intenso attacco.

Alle 11:30, il ministro della Salute ha dovuto annunciare che gli ospedali erano pieni fino a traboccare. Domenica sera ci sono stati circa 1.300 morti e 5.000 feriti.

La NATO era stata incaricato dal Consiglio di Sicurezza dell’ONU di proteggere i civili libici.  In realtà, Francia e Gran Bretagna hanno appena re-iniziato il loro massacro coloniale.

Alle 01:00, Khamis Gheddafi è venuto personalmente all ‘Hotel Rixos per consegnare armi utili alla difesa dell’ hotel. Poi se ne è andato. Vi sono al momento intensi combattimenti in tutto l’hotel.

La quadruplice sta facendo pagare all’Italia l’alleanza con Putin e Gheddafi

Con la Clinton in testa, il Club non tollera autonomia e soluzioni energetiche nazionali

 

Capolinea? ItaliaOggi del 7 ottobre 2009 scrisse che Silvio Berlusconi traballava a causa dei legami con Gheddafi e Putin, dopo la vittoria di Hussein Barak Obama e Hillary Clinton. Tre mesi prima ItaliaOggi accostò le fucilate mediatiche sulle ospiti di villa Certosa ai «terroristi che un tempo annunciavano a rivoltellate le elezioni imminenti». Seguì un copione sperimentato dal 1945, quando il «quartetto» dei vincitori (Gran Bretagna, Francia, Usa e Urss), irradiatosi nei nostri interessi, li predò più o meno di comune accordo, manipolandoci la democrazia, corrompendola e non solo. Crollata l’Urss, subentrò la Germania e il nuovo Quartetto eliminò alleati esigenti a vantaggio di ex nemici ricattabili.

Berlusconi entrò in politica nel 1994 per salvare la sua proprietà? I valvassori del Quartetto rapinavano da sempre le ricchezze italiane; dopo il 1989 Mediaset fu tra le appetibili. I valvassori ebbero sempre man salva purché assicurassero la ciclica spremitura degli italici servi della gleba, come desiderano mercati, Bce, Imf e agenzie di rating. L’Italia è come le mucche dei Masai. I valvassori le incidono ogni tanto le vene del collo, badando di non ucciderla; raccolgono il sangue nella zucca e lo porgono al Quartetto che lascia qualcosa sul fondo da leccare. Negli anni ’50 gli Usa bevevano per primi; oggi Berlino ha il primato, segue Parigi, ultima la Clinton che freme dopo gli abili inglesi. Il deficit statale fu pure sperperi e corruzione, però conseguenti a politiche agricole, industriali ed energetiche genuflesse al Quartetto vampiro.

Il sistema (difeso con bombe, terrore rossonero, mafia e agenzie di rating) perseguita e uccide chiunque tenti di scalfirlo o svelarlo, come Enrico Mattei, Aldo Moro, Giovanni Leone, Luigi Calabresi, Mino Pecorelli, Walter Tobagi, Bettino Craxi. Piemme comunisti? Una balla rancida: o effimeri autocrati a caccia di visibilità oppure organici ai quattro del Quartetto. Vi sono pure, grazie a Dio, tanti liberi, onesti e coraggiosi; va detto e ricordato con un grazie.

Berlusconi parvenu (come sibilarono Gianni Agnelli e Indro Montanelli, valvassori fra i più zelanti) s’adattò alle regole dei Quattro che spaccano il paese in due partiti, l’uno contro l’altro, i capponi manzoniani: comunisti contro anticomunisti, poi nord contro sud, guelfi contro ghibellini, obbligandoci a un moto parossistico e immobile, come un calabrone, di fronte al fiore inarrivabile delle riforme. «Faremo, cambieremo, riformeremo» ronzava il calabrone Silvio, mentre agguantava il futuro legando Vladimir Putin a George Bush Sr, nonostante costui sia assiduo col suo peggiore nemico in Svizzera. Sembrava fatta. Tornata tuttavia al potere la sitibonda Clinton, ogni equilibrio s’infranse nella guerra di rapina alla Libia. Berlusconi maramaldo che pugnala Gheddafi, anticipa quello col «cuore grondante sangue» che tradisce gli elettori. La Germania sta alla finestra, come gli Usa nella guerra dello Yom Kippur del 1973; lascia che altri combattano, agevolando i suoi disegni, in Libia come a Roma, dove osserva Giulio Tremonti accostarsi a palazzo Chigi col primo di tre indispensabili passi: uccidere Berlusconi, politicamente s’intende. Deve, può o vuole? È presto per dirlo. Anche il secondo passo, cavar sangue come i valvassori, potrebbe essere obbligato da politiche spietate. Arriverà il terzo e decisivo passo di Tremonti, se vorrà omologarsi? Porgerà la zucca, come Giuliano Amato e Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, prima di lui? A chi la porgerà prima? Che cosa conterrà? Eni, Finmeccanica? Washington condivide le priorità di Giulio con le altre tre? I guai di Marco Milanese crescono mentre si colma la zucca? Oltre le congetture, sono seri i guai del Cavaliere se smarrisce la realtà come Bettino Craxi, quando aprì le porte del Quirinale a Oscar Luigi Scalfaro e chiuse le proprie. La volpe ansima e i cani la incalzano. A meno che, a marzo, Vladimir Putin_ o forse prima, vedremo, intanto paghiamo.

Majer-Zlitan Massacre by NATO (Eng-Ita-Esp)

Press Conference by Moussa Ibrahim

on Majer-Zlitan Massacre by NATO (August 9, 2011)

Libia, Majer-Zlitan: la NATO massacra 85 civili, di cui 33 bambini, 32 donne, 20 uomini. “Per motivi umanitari” come ci spiegano i nostri “politici-burattini” nelle mani dell’usurocrazia finanziaria e bancaria mondiale.

Il popolo della Libia di Jamahiriya e di Tripoli sappia però che non tutti in Europa sono così stupidi da non aver capito il complotto/cospirazione contro la Libia ed i popoli/Nazioni del mondo, e faremo il possibile per diffondere la Verità sul crimine che si sta compiendo ai danni della Libia e di tutti noi.

Ognuno ha il suo ruolo, ognuno fa la sua parte: buona fortuna fratelli della Jamahiriya ancora libera (Nota di Redazione)

Libyan Army Soldiers Don’t Enslave Like Rebels

 Libyan Army Soldiers Don’t Enslave Like Rebels

Libia, l’incredibile suicidio dei ribelli

Libia, l’incredibile suicidio dei ribelli

di Gianandrea Gaiani – LaBussolaQuotidiana -02 agosto 2011


Avevano garantito di poter prendere Tripoli in poche settimane invece le truppe lealiste hanno dimostrato di poter colpire il cuore di Bengasi, la capitale dei ribelli. Questi ultimi, insieme alla Nato che ha lanciato raids aerei mirati, avrebbero dovuto uccidere Muammar Gheddafi, invece hanno cominciato a uccidersi tra loro con l’esecuzione di Abdel Fattah Younes, ex Ministro degli interni del regime schieratosi con i ribelli, dei quali era diventato il capo militare.

La coalizione che ha riunito tribù diverse e gruppi politici variegati (inclusi gli estremisti islamici) sembra andare in pezzi. La crisi tra le diverse anime del Consiglio nazionale di transizione (Cnt) era già tangibile da tempo ma è esplosa con l’uccisone di Younes, tutta ancora da chiarire. Richiamato a Bengasi dal fronte di Brega, dove guidava l’assalto alla roccaforte lealista, per rispondere a una fantomatica commissione che gli contestava rapporti con il regime e traffici di armi, Younes è stato ucciso dagli stessi ribelli che lo avevano prelevato.

Secondo un comandante insurrezionale, che ha preteso di restare anonimo, sarebbero stati alcuni fondamentalisti islamici unitisi alla rivolta ad averlo assassinato per vendicare le feroci rappresaglie ordinate dal generale quando era il numero due del regime contro i miliziani del GMIL (Gruppo Militante Islamico Libico). “Alcuni di quegli estremisti adesso stanno lottando al fianco di noi insorti, e si sono sempre rifiutati di combattere agli ordini di Younes, vedendolo anzi con sospetto”, ha spiegato.

L’ufficiale ha aggiunto che lo stesso Mustafa Abdul Jalil, il presidente del Consiglio Nazionale Transitorio di Bengasi che due sere fa annunciò la morte del capo di stato maggiore anti-regime, “non ha potuto accusare direttamente gli integralisti perché ne ha paura”. Secondo fonti del Cnt il leader del commando omicida sarebbe stato arrestato mentre gli esecutori materiali restano latitanti. Si tratterrebbe di miliziani della Brigata Obaida ibn Jarrah, una milizia che affianca i rivoltosi e che prende nome da uno dei compagni del profeta Maometto. Da Tripoli, il regime di Gheddafi ha accusato al-Qaeda dell’uccisione di Younes ma la pista islamista potrebbe costituire un comodo capro espiatorio per giustificare l’eliminazione di un uomo in realtà scomodo per molti leader ribelli.

Il bengasino Jallil, anche lui ex ministro di Gheddafi, ha sempre considerato Younes un pericoloso rivale anche perché era un esponente di spicco della potente tribù degli Abdyat, di Tobruk, le cui milizie erano giunte in armi a Bengasi per chiedere la liberazione del generale e poi spiegazioni sulla sua morte.

Secondo Abdullah Baio una delle sue guardie del corpo, Younes sarebbe stato portato in auto a Bengasi da uomini della Brigata 17 Febbraio, guidata dall’ex ingegnere petrolchimico Fawzi Bu Katef, uno dei comandanti che non aveva mai digerito l’incarico di Younis ai vertici militari dell’insurrezione. Un altro rivale di Younes è il colonnello Khalifa Hifter, eroe della guerra in Ciad degli anni ’80 e in seguito passato alla dissidenza fuggendo negli Stati Uniti dove ha vissuto per 20 anni sotto la protezione della Cia prima di tornare a Bengasi nel marzo scorso. L’uccisione di Younes e le sue conseguenze rendono e ancora più evidenti l’incapacità militare dei ribelli libici e la loro instabilità politica.

Nel tentativo di mostrare una forza politica inesistente Jallil ha decretato lo scioglimento delle diverse milizie che compongono l’esercito ribelle: per lo più formazioni tribali ma anche politiche come quelle che si richiamano al GMIL o ai jihadisti di Derna. ”E’ ora di sciogliere queste milizie. Chiunque si rifiuterà di porre in atto questo decreto verrà processato”, ha detto il presidente del Cnt aggiungendo che le brigate della città di Bengasi saranno assorbite dal ministero dell’Interno.

Ventiquattrore ore dopo i funerali di Younes a Bengasi si è però scatenata una battaglia che il Cnt attribuisce a un’incursione di uomini di Gheddafi che avrebbero liberato 300 prigionieri di guerra. Nello scontro sarebbero morti sei insorti e 31 lealisti sarebbero stati catturati ma molti sospettano che si sia trattato dell’inizio della guerra tra le diverse milizie degli insorti. Gli alleati della Nato, coloro per i quali italiani ed europei combattono da cinque mesi, sembrano quindi allo sbando e fa sorridere ricordare con quanta facilità è stata attribuita loro da Washington, Londra, Parigi e Roma la patente di sinceri democratici e combattenti per la libertà.

Solo pochi giorni or sono il Cnt è stato invitato ad aprire sedi diplomatiche in Europa quale legittimo rappresentante del popolo libico. A quanto pare è invece solo il rappresentante non molto legittimo di diverse milizie, incluse quelle jihadiste, pronte a sbranarsi tra loro (impiegando anche le armi fornite da Parigi e Roma) prima ancora di aver fatto cadere il regime di Gheddafi.

Di fronte all’ottusa incapacità di Unione Europea e Nato spicca per acutezza e lungimiranza il monito più volte formulato dall’Unione Africana che ha più volte messo in guardia la comunità internazionale contro il rischio di “feudalizzazione” di una Libia fuori controllo in mano a signori della guerra e milizie. Un’altra Somalia nel cuore del Mediterraneo a pochi chilometri dalle coste italiane.

Daily NATO War Crimes in Libya

Daily NATO War Crimes in Libya

by Stephen Lendman – July 29, 2011 – Mathaba


Among them is waging war on truth, Western managed news calling lawless imperial wars liberating ones, as George Orwell predicted in his book 1984: War is Peace, Slavery is Freedom, Ignorance is Strength

No wonder John Pilger says journalism is the first casualty of war, adding:

“Not only that: it has become a weapon of war, a virulent censorship (and deception) that goes unrecognised in the United States, Britain and other democracies; censorship by omission, whose power is such that, in war, it can mean the difference between life and death for people in faraway countries….”

In their book, “Guardians of Power,” David Edwards and David Cromwell explained why today’s media are in crisis and a free and open society at risk. It’s because press prostitutes substitute fiction for fact. News is carefully filtered, dissent marginalized, and supporting wealth and power substitutes for full and accurate reporting.

It’s a cancer, corrupting everything from corporate-run print and broadcast sources, as well as operations like BBC and what passes for America’s hopelessly compromised public radio and TV. They put out daily managed and junk food news plus infotainment, treating consumers like mushrooms – well-watered and in the dark.

During wars, in fact, they cheerlead them, reporting agitprop and misinformation no respectable journalist would touch.

On the Progressive Radio News Hour, Middle East/Central Asia analyst Mahdi Nazemroaya, in Tripoli, said some journalists also perform fifth column duties, collecting intelligence and locating targets to supply NATO bombing coordinates, notably civilian targets called military ones.

In a July 28 email, he said tell listeners that “NATO is trying to negotiate with the government in Tripoli.” More on that below. He added that they’re also “planning a new stage of the war against the Libyan people through (predatory) NGOs and fake humanitarian missions.” A likely UN Blue Helmet occupying force also, paramilitaries masquerading as peacekeepers Gaddafi controlled areas won’t tolerate.

NATO, in fact, calls civilian targets legitimate ones, including one or more hospitals, a clinic, factories, warehouses, agricultural sites, schools, a university, one or more mosques, non-military related infrastructure, a food storage facility, and others.

Notably on July 23, a Brega water pipe factory was struck, killing six guards. It produces pipes for Libya’s Great Man-Made River (GMMR) system (GMMR), an ocean-sized aquifer beneath its sands, making the desert bloom for productive agriculture, and supplying water to Libya’s people.

The previous day, a water supply pipeline was destroyed. It will take months to restore. The factory produced vital pipes to do it, a clear war crime like daily others. Moreover, the entire GMMR is threatened by a shortage of spare parts and chemicals. As a result, it’s struggling to keep reservoirs at a level able to provide a sustainable supply. Without it, a humanitarian disaster looms, very likely what NATO plans as in past wars.

On July 27, AFP said that:

“NATO warned that its warplanes will bomb civilian facilities if (Gaddafi’s) forces use them to launch attacks.” At the same time, a spokesman said great care is taken to minimize civilian casualties.

NATO lied. Daily, it’s attacking non-military related sites to destroy Libya’s ability to function in areas loyal to Gaddafi. Earlier, in fact, a spokesman claimed there was “no evidence” civilian targets were hit or noncombatants killed, except one time a major incident was too obvious to hide. Reluctantly it admitted a “mistake,” covering up a willful planned attack, knowing civilians were affected.

Libya (satellite) TV calls itself “a voice for free Libya….struggling to liberate Libya from the grip of the Gaddafi regime….” In fact, it’s a pro-NATO propaganda service, reporting misinformation on air and online.

On July 25, it headlined, “No evidence to support Gaddafi’s allegations that civilian targets were hit,” when, it fact, they’re struck daily.

Nonetheless, it claimed only military sites are bombed, saying Tripoli-based journalists aren’t taken to affected areas, “suggesting NATO’s gunners are hitting military targets, at least in the capital.”

In fact, corporate and independent journalists are regularly taken to many sites struck. Independent accounts confirm civilian casualties and non-military facilities bombed. Pro-NATO scoundrels report managed news, complicit in daily war crimes.

On July 28, Libya TV claimed “captured Gaddafi soldiers say army morale is low,” when, in fact, most Libyans support Gaddafi. Millions are armed. Gaddafi gave them weapons. They could easily oust him if they wish. Instead, they rally supportively, what Western media and Libya TV won’t report.

Moreover, captured soldiers say what they’re told, likely threatened with death or torture if they refuse, especially in rebel paramilitary hands, under NATO orders to terrorize areas they control.

As a result, civilian casualties mount, up to 1,200 or more killed and thousands wounded in pro-Gaddafi areas, many seriously as war rages. In addition, unknown numbers of combatant casualties on both sides aren’t known, nor is the civilian toll in rebel held areas.

Nonetheless, daily sorties and strikes continue. Since mid-July alone through July 27, they include:

July 14: 132 sorties and 48 strikes

July 15: 115 sorties and 46 strikes

July 16: 110 sorties and 45 strikes

July 17: 122 sorties and 46 strikes

July 18: 129 sorties and 44 strikes

July 19: 113 sorties and 40 strikes

July 20: 122 sorties and 53 strikes

July 21: 124 sorties and 45 strikes

July 22: 128 sorties and 46 strikes

July 23: 125 sorties and 56 strikes

July 24: 163 sorties and 43 strikes

July 25: 111 sorties and 54 strikes

July 26: 134 sorties and 46 strikes

July 27: 133 sorties and 54 strikes

Daily patterns are consistent. However, information on numbers and types of bombs, as well as other munitions aren’t given. Instead, misinformation claims a humanitarian mission protects civilians – by terrorizing, killing, and injuring them, solely for imperial aims. It’s why all US-led wars are fought, never for liberating reasons.

The entire campaign is based on lies. It’s standard war time procedure, to enlist popular support for campaigns people otherwise would reject.

In fact, no humanitarian crisis existed until NATO arrived. Moreover, in paramilitary controlled areas, Amnesty International confirmed only 110 pro and anti-Gaddafi supporter deaths combined, most likely more of the former than latter as rebel cutthroats rampaged through areas they occupy. Currently, the numbers of dead and injured civilians are many times that amount, largely from NATO attacks.

NATO, in fact, is code language for the Pentagon, paying the largest share of its operating and military budgets. Except for Germany and Britain, other members pay small shares, most, in fact, miniscule amounts.

Since NATO began bombing on March 19, daily attacks inflicted lawless collective punishment against millions in Gaddafi supported areas. Affected is their ability to obtain food, medicines, fuel and other basic supplies, exposing another lie about humanitarian intervention.

On July 25, OCHA’s fact-finding team said Tripoli contained “pockets of vulnerability where people need urgent humanitarian assistance.” Medical supplies are running low. The last major delivery was in January, and concerns are increasing about the “unsustainable food supply chain for the public distribution systems, especially as Ramadan approaches (on or around August 1 to about August 29) and the conflict persists.”

Moreover, “Libyan oil experts warned that fuel stocks could run out in two weeks.” Public transportation costs have tripled. Food prices have also soared. Tripoli residents experience electricity cuts, and clean water supplies are endangered.

Before conflict erupted, Libyans had the region’s highest standard of living and highest life expectancy in Africa because Gaddafi’s oil wealth provided healthcare, education, housing assistance and other social benefits. Imperial war, of course, changed things. Libyans now hang on to survive.

Seeking an End Game

On July 26, UPI headlined, “NATO seeks urgent exit strategy in Libya,” knowing this phase of the war is lost. Nonetheless, future strategies and campaigns will follow.

For now, however, “NATO is seeking an urgent exit strategy (to end) fighting and decide the future of (Gaddifi), even if that means letting him stay in the country though out of power, it emerged Tuesday after British and French foreign ministers met in London.”

In tribal Libya, Gaddafi’s power, in fact, is far less than reported, social anthropologist Ranier Fsadni saying:

“Gaddafi’s feeling for tribal Libya is certainly one factor that explains how he has managed to rule the country for so many years. (However), (t)here is no tribal office giving a single man a monopoly of institutional power at the apex….Several factors account for his longevity in power,” including sharing Libya’s oil wealth.

UPI said diplomacy is driven by a failed military campaign. As a result, “(i)ntense mediation efforts are underway at different levels at the United Nations and Europe, in African, European and Middle Eastern capitals and Russia.”

Neither side is commenting, but some observers think operations may wind down in weeks, based on an unannounced face-saving solution, despite continued destabilization and future conflict planned. It’s similar to Balkan and Iraq war strategies, a combination of tactics until Washington prevailed.

Libya faces the same end game, though years could pass before it arrives. As a result, Libyans can expect continued hardships. When imperial America shows up, that strategy persists until it prevails, no matter the pain and suffering inflicted.

NATO has declared War on Millions of green Libyans

Anti NATO Rebel Alliance Demonstration in Zliten, July 15, 2011

Another Pro-Gaddafi Demonstration in Ajaylat, July 14, 2011

Massive Anti NATO-Rebel Alliance Demonstration in Sabha, Libya on July 8, 2011

Speech Gaddafi during mass demonstration in Tripoli

July 16, 2011
On July 15th, 2011 the NATO countries with a few Arab countries agreed to regard their Rebels in Libya as the legitimate representatives of the Libyan people. They also decided that the Libyan money that was ‘freezed’ by these nations is now ready to be given to the opposition forces. This has all been covered by the Western media as a good humanitarian development in support of freedom fighters against the loyalist forces of the cruel dictator Gaddafi.

Words make all the difference in the world and so far the western words were blindly spread by the news media. The result is that the words of millions of Libyan people are suppressed because they have a different message altogether. For those who haven’t noticed: millions of people in various cities in Libya have gone to the streets to protest against NATO – sometimes even burning flags of European nations – and their military, political, financial alliance with the Rebels of the East.

In the view of these green people (green being the color of the Libyan flag and now the color of all who oppose the NATO Rebel Alliance) NATO has declared war on all those millions of Libyans by officially backing those ‘traitors of the East’ (as they are called) who would be helpless without the support of the mighty killing warplanes of their NATO allies.

This piece of information is heavily suppressed by the Alliance, since it is not good for the public opinion if the world knew that NATO is helping to turn peaceful green cities into battlefields by assisting their rebel forces in many ways. Below are a few youtube movies that display the green protests against the imperialistic war declaration against them.

Gaddafi’s son: US looks on Libya as McDonald’s

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, Gaddafi’s son:

US looks on Libya as McDonald’s

Great speech of Saif al-Islam, July 1, 2011 (RT News)
#
USA looks upon Libya as fast food expecting a fast war and a quick victory, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of the Libyan leader wanted by the ICC, told RT. But the West will never get what they want, he added.

“Many countries, Iran and North Korea are among them, told us it was our mistake to give up, to have stopped developing long-range missiles and to become friendly with the West. Our example means one should never trust the West and should always be on alert – for them it is fine to change their mind overnight and start bombing Libya,” said Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.

“One of our biggest mistakes was that we delayed buying new weapons, especially from Russia, and delayed building a strong army. We thought Europeans were our friends; our mistake was to be tolerant with our enemies”.

Gaddafi’s son was charged by the International Criminal Court on June 27 for a “state policy aimed at deterring by any means, including lethal force, the demonstrations of civilians against the Gaddafi regime” alongside his father Muammar Gaddafi and his military intelligence chief General Abdullah al-Sanoussi. However the Libyan leader’s son sees the charge differently.

“They do not accuse me of policy, they accuse me of killing people, and everybody knows it. For me to be responsible for killing people was a joke. This would have happened anywhere in the world if people in the street moved towards a military site trying to steal ammunition or arms. Of course the military would prevent them!” stated Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.

The son of the Libyan leader denied either he or his father had ordered the killing of protesters.

“No, nobody ordered to kill them, the guards just fired, that’s it. And they do not need permission to do that.” 
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi said the West has only one target – Libya. “The country is a like a piece of cake for them – it is rich, it has gas, oil and money, so they must kill my father to get the cake. What they don’t understand is that the fighting will not stop if my father goes. Libyans will continue fighting until one day the country will be back to the Libyans,” concluded Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.

What America Stands for in Libya

What America Stands for in Libya

Cynthia McKinney – June 30, 2011

At a time when the American people have been asked to tighten their belts, teachers are receiving pink slips, the vital statistics of the American people reveal a health care crisis in the making, and the U.S. government is in serious threat of default, our President and Congress have decided that a new war, this time against the people of Libya, is appropriate. This comes at a time when the U.S., by one estimate, spends approximately $3 billion per week for war against Iraq and Afghanistan. The President and Congress continue to fund the war against Libya despite the fact that Secretary of Defense Robert Gates announced that the U.S. had no strategic interest in Libya; and despite the fact that the Senate Chairwoman of the Select Committee on Intelligence admits that the U.S. really does not know who the “rebels” are; while the rebels themselves, according to a Telegraph report of 25 March 2011, admit that Al Qaeda elements are among their ranks. So while the apparatus of our government has been used for over ten years to inform the American people and the global community that Al Qaeda is an enemy of freedom-loving people all over the world, our President chooses to ally our military with none other than Al Qaeda elements in Libya and other people whom U.S. intelligence say they do not know.

Additionally, U.S. Admiral Locklear admitted to a Member of Congress that one of NATO’s missions was to assassinate Muammar Qaddafi. And, indeed, NATO bombs have killed Qaddafi’s son and three grandchildren, just as US bombs in 1986 killed his daughter. NATO bombs just recently killed the grandchildren of one of Qaddafi’s associates in a targeted assassination attempt. Targeted assassination is not within the scope of the United Nations Security Council Resolution and targeted assassination is against U.S. law, international law, international humanitarian law, and international human rights law. Targeted assassination is also a crime. We certainly cannot encourage others to abide by the law when we so openly break it.

While in Libya, I witnessed NATO’s targeting of civilians: NATO bombs and missiles landed in residential neighborhoods, hit schools, exploded near hospitals, destroyed parts of the public broadcasting infrastructure, and narrowly missed killing students at Al Fateh University. When civilians are targeted in war, or “low kinetic” activities, (1) crimes are committed.

NATO practices in Libya are exactly like Israel’s practices in Gaza: fishermen are killed as they go about their fishing business, a naval blockade allows arms to flow to NATO’s Libyan allies, but stops food, fuel, and medicine from entering non-NATO ally-held areas. The entire population suffers as a result. Collective punishment is illegal when Israel practices it against the people of Gaza and collective punishment is illegal when NATO practices it.

NATO and hyperbolic press accounts have introduced a kind of race hatred that the Libyan people have been trying hard to erase. Approximately 50% of Libya looks like me. Innocent darker skinned Libyans have been targeted, tortured, harassed, and killed.

The people of Libya have the right to self-determination. They have a right to “resource nationalism.” They have a right to live in peace. They have a right to determine their future and they need not exercise their rights underneath the shock and awe of NATO bombs and missiles.

Libya’s neighborhoods prepare for NATO boots

Libya’s neighborhoods prepare for NATO boots

by Franklin P. Lamb – Tripoli (Libye) – 1 July 2011


Franklin Lamb in Tripoli
    © Voltaire Network

At ten a.m. Tripoli time on 6/28/11 the Libyan Ministry of Health made available to this observer its compilation entitled Current Statistics Of Civilian Victims Of Nato Bombardments On Libya, (3/19/11-6/27/11).

Before releasing their data, which will be made public this afternoon, it was confirmed by the findings of the Libyan Red Crescent Society and also by civil defense workers in the neighborhoods bombed, and then vetted by researchers at Tripoli’s Nassar University.

As of July 1, 2011, Military casualties have not been officially released by the Libyan armed forces.

In summary, the MOH compilation documents that during the first 100 days of NATO targeting of civilians, 6121 were killed or injured. The statistical breakdown is as follows: 3093 Men were injured and 668 were killed; Women killed number 260 and 1318 injured; Children killed number 141 and 641 injured. Of those seriously injured 655 are still under medical care in hospitals while 4,397 have been released to their families for outpatient care.

Gender         Killed         Injured         Total
Men               668              3093             3761
Women        260              1318              1578
Children      141                 641                782
Total          1069              5052              6121

NATO claims that private apartments and homes, schools, shops, factories, crops, and warehouses storing sacks of flour were legitimate military targets are not believed by anyone here in Libya, and, to date, NATO has failed to provide a scintilla of evidence that the 15 civilians, mainly children and their aunts and mothers, who were torn to pieces by 8 NATO rockets in the Salman neighborhood last week were legitimate military targets.

Tripoli’s 3,200 neighborhoods, independently from the Libyan Armed Forces, are intensively preparing for the possibility that NATO forces or those they are seen as increasingly arming and directing, might invade the cosmopolitan greater Tripoli area during the coming weeks or months.

This observer has had the opportunity to visit some of these neighborhoods the past couple of nights and will continue to do so. As noted earlier, contrary to some media reports by the BBC, CNN and CBS, Tripoli’s neighborhoods during the cool evenings with wafting sea breezes, are not tense, “dangerous for foreigners and in control of trigger happy soldiers or militias.” The latter assessment is nonsense. Americans and others are welcomed and their presence appreciated. Libyans are anxious to explain their points of views, a common one of which is that they are not all about Qaddafi but about protecting the family, homes, and neighborhoods from foreign invaders. A majority does support the Qaddafi leadership which is what they received with their mother’s milk, but nearly all emphasize that for them and their friends it is very much about defending their revolution and country first. They appear to this observer to be very well informed about the motives of NATO and those countries that are intensively targeting their leader and their officials without regard to civilians being killed. It’s about oil and reshaping Africa and the Middle East.

Sitting and chatting with neighborhood watch teams are actually an extremely enjoyable way to learn about and to get to know the Libyan people and how they view events unfolding in their country. It certainly beats hanging out at “the bar” at the hotel where the western main stream media often gather their journalistic insights and pontificate about what “the real deal is” as one told me the other day. I could not figure out much that he was talking about.

On the evening of 7/1/11 as many as one million Libyan citizens are expected to gather at Tripoli’s Green Square to register their resistance to NATO’s intensifying civilian targeting blitz. Some western journalists will not attend this news event because they are afraid of potential danger or their stateside bureaus are suggesting they stay away “so as not to legitimize the gathering”. What has become of orientalist journalism?

The neighborhoods in Libya are preparing for a ground invasion and to confront directly the invaders with a plan that one imagines would not be unfamiliar to a General Giap of Vietnam or a Chinese General Lin Peio, being a massive peoples’ defense. It has been organized with a house by house, street by street defense plan for every neighborhood and will include all available weaponry.

The defenders are not military although many of the older ones had done one year compulsory service following high school. Their ranks include every able bodied woman and man from age 18 to 65. Younger or older will not be refused.

Following a Hezbollah model, they are organized into 5 person squads once they complete their training. It works like this: Anyone over 18 years of age can report to his neighborhood “Tent”. Knowing virtually everyone in the area, the person will make an application and will be vetted on an AK-47, M-16 or other light arm. Depending on her/his skill level, he will be accepted and given a photo ID that lists the weapons the applicant qualified on. If he needs more training or is a novice it is provided at the location which includes a training area, tent with mattresses for sleeping, a make shift latrine and canteen.

The basic training for those with no arms experience, including women, is 45 days. Past that, the commitment is four months. Each accepted individual is issued a rifle (normally an AK-47 “Klash” along with 120 rounds of ammo.) Each individual is asked to return in one week to discuss their training and show that they did not waste their bullets which cost around one dollar each. If approved, they will be issued more.

Those who begin their duty work one eight hour shift. Women tend to work during the day when kids are in school but I have seen many women also on the night shift. Most men have regular jobs and proudly explain than they volunteer one work shift daily for their country. They appear to be admired by their neighbors.

I agreed not to describe other weapons that will be used if NATO appears besides rifles, grenades, booby-traps, rocket propelled grenades (RPG’s) but they appear formidable.

But besides preparing for armed defense of their families and homes and neighbors, these neighborhood volunteer civil defense teams explained to me what their main work involves. When an area is bombed, they quickly help the residents exit their bombed building, get medical help on the scene for those who need it, help the families assure the frightened children that things are OK, make notes of needed repairs, provide temporary shelter nearby if needed, and countless tasks the reader can imagine would be required from a humanitarian, civilian perspective.

Each check point becomes a neighborhood watch security center for the community. Cars are cursorily checked, usually just the trunk. Often the drivers are known to the security forces, many of whom are university students, because they are also from the area. Occasionally a car will stop and a citizen will exit and deliver a tray of fruit or pastries or a pot of Libyan soup etc. A very congenial social atmosphere.

Because NATO has been increasing its bombing of these civilian manned checkpoints, about 50 of which are along the road from the Tunisian border to Tripoli, the neighborhood watch teams are now operating without lights at night.. Those on night duty have each been issued one of those small heavy duty five inch mini flashlights which have a powerful beam. This observer was presented one as a souvenir and can attest to its fine quality.

They are civilian because they are volunteers and the regular policemen and women have in large numbers joined an army unit hidden elsewhere.

In addition to its current problems, NATO will face another major one if they decide to invade Western Libya.

Amnesty International: nessuna prova degli stupri in Libia

Amnesty International:

nessuna prova degli stupri in Libia

L’organizzazione internazionale ha avviato un’inchiesta ma non ha trovato certezze né alcuna vittima. L’allarme era stata lanciato dai ribelli anti regime e rilanciato da Hillary Clinton

Il Giornale/Esteri – Nessuna prova delle violenze. E stavolta a dirlo è chi le violenze le denuncia quotidianamente, Amnesty International. È l’organizzazione impegnata nella difesa dei diritti umani e citata dall’Independent ad affermare che gli stupri di massa e gli abusi commessi dalle forze leali al Colonnello Gheddafi, utilizzati per giustificare l’attacco della Nato sul Paese, potrebbero non essere mai avvenuti. Amnesty ha avviato un’inchiesta e non è riuscita a trovare alcuna prova di queste violenze e abusi dei diritti umani. L’organizzazione per i diritti umani ha invece rilevato che in alcuni casi i ribelli di Bengasi avevano dichiarato il falso o manipolato prove.
Donatella Rovera, una funzionaria di Amnesty che è stata in Libia per tre mesi dopo l’inizio delle rivolte, ha dichiarato che non è stato possibile «trovare alcuna prova o una singola vittima di violenze sessuali, o un medico che ne fosse al corrente». Rovera ha sottolineato che ciò non dimostra che gli stupri non siano avvenuti, ma che non è stato possibile trovarne le prove. Anche Liesel Gerntholts, responsabile dei diritti femminili presso Human Rights Watch, un’altra organizzazione che ha condotto un’inchiesta sulle accuse di violenze sessuali, ha detto di «non essere stata in grado di trovare alcuna prova». Per quanto riguarda la storia secondo cui all’esercito di Gheddafi sarebbe stato distribuito il Viagra per incoraggiarli a violentare le donne, la funzionaria di Amnesty ha raccontato che la fonte erano i ribelli di Bengasi, che avevano mostrato ai giornalisti stranieri alcuni pacchetti di Viagra trovati su carri armati andati a fuoco, ma che i pacchetti stessi non mostravano bruciature.
Quanto emerge dall’inchiesta di Amnesty pare contraddire quanto sostenuto da Luis Moreno-Ocanmpo, procuratore capo del Tribunale Penale Internazionale, che due settimane fa in una conferenza stampa ha dichiarato che in Libia esisteva la strategia di «violentare chi è contro il governo». Le sue parole hanno trovato eco in quelle di Hillary Clinton, che la scorsa settimana ha parlato di «violenze sessuali, minacce fisiche, molestie» in Libia.

Tripoli bombardé ne faiblit pas

Tripoli bombardé ne faiblit pas

par Thierry Meyssan – Réseau Voltaire – Tripoli (Libye) – 27 juin 2011

Un groupe international d’enquêteurs du Réseau Voltaire est actuellement en Libye. Il a pu se rendre sur des lieux de bombardements. Disposant de la confiance des autorités libyennes, il a pu rencontrer quelques uns des dirigeants politiques et sécuritaires malgré les conditions de guerre. Leur constat est diamétralement opposé aux images véhiculées par la presse occidentale. Thierry Meyssan livre leurs premières observations.
 
 
 

 

 La chambre à coucher de Mouammar Kadhafi, bombardée par l’OTAN. L’Alliance a détruit deux autres chambres du bâtiment, celle de son fils et de ses petits enfants, qui sont morts. Le Guide était absent – © Réseau Voltaire

Au centième jour de bombardement de la Libye, l’OTAN annonce l’imminence de son succès. Cependant, les buts de guerre n’étant pas clairement précisés, on ignore en quoi consistera ce succès. Simultanément, la Cour pénale internationale annonce la mise en accusation du Guide Mouammar Kadhafi, de son fils Saif al-Islam et du chef des services de renseignement intérieur, Abdallah al-Senoussi pour « crimes contre l’humanité ».

Si l’on se rapporte à la résolution 1973 du Conseil de sécurité, la Coalition des États volontaires vise à établir une zone d’exclusion aérienne afin d’empêcher les troupes du tyran de tuer son propre peuple. Cependant, les informations initiales selon lesquelles l’armée de l’air libyenne a bombardé des villes qui s’étaient soulevées contre le pouvoir de Tripoli ne sont toujours pas corroborées, bien qu’elles soient considérées comme fiables par la Cour pénale internationale. Quoi qu’il en soit, les actions de l’OTAN ont très largement dépassé l’instauration d’une zone d’exclusion aérienne pour se transformer en une destruction systématique des fores armées nationales, air, terre et mer.

Les objectifs de l’OTAN sont probablement autres. Les leaders de l’Alliance ont ainsi évoqué de nombreuses fois le renversement du « régime » de Mouammar Kadhafi, voire l’élimination physique du « frère Guide ». Les médias occidentaux évoquent des « défections massives » des cadres de Tripoli et leur ralliement à la cause des insurgés de Benghazi, mais ils ne parviennent pas à citer de noms, sinon ceux d’hommes politiques connus de longue date pour être favorables au rapprochement avec Washington, tel l’ex-ministre des Affaires étrangères Moussa Koussa.

L’opinion publique internationale est massivement désinformée. Washington a fait couper les retransmissions de la télévision libyenne sur le satellite ArabSat, dont la Jamahariya est pourtant actionnaire. Le département d’État ne devrait plus être long à faire de même avec NileSat.
En violation de ses engagements internationaux, Washington a refusé un visa au nouveau représentant libyen à l’ONU. Il ne peut venir à New York exposer son point de vue, tandis que son prédécesseur, rallié au CNT continue à occuper son siège.
La voix de Tripoli étant étouffée, il est possible de répandre n’importe quel mensonge sans crainte d’être contredit.

Rien d’étonnant donc à ce que vu de Tripoli, d’où cet article est écrit, les communiqués de l’OTAN et les injonctions de la Cour pénale internationale paraissent irréels. L’Ouest de la Libye est paisible. À des moments aléatoires, les sirènes annoncent l’arrivée des bombardiers ou des missiles. Suivi immédiatement des explosions qu’ils provoquent. Il est inutile de courir aux abris, d’une part parce que le temps est trop court et d’autre part, parce qu’il n’y a guère d’abris.

Les bombardements sont ciblés avec une extrême précision. Les munitions guidées touchent les bâtiments visés, et dans ces bâtiments, les pièces visées. Toutefois, l’OTAN perd le contrôle en vol d’environ un missile guidé sur dix. Celui-là tombe à l’aveuglette. N’importe où dans la ville, semant la mort au hasard.

Si une partie des cibles de l’OTAN sont « militaires » : casernes et bases ; la plupart sont « stratégiques », c’est-à-dire économiques. Par exemple, l’Alliance a bombardé l’imprimerie de la Monnaie libyenne, une administration civile chargée de fabriquer les dinars. Ou encore, ses commandos ont saboté des usines qui faisaient concurrence à celles de membres de la Coalition. D’autres cibles sont dites « psychologiques ». Il s’agit de toucher dans leur chair les dirigeants politiques et sécuritaires en massacrant leurs familles. Les missiles sont alors pointés sur les habitations privées, et plus précisément sur les chambres à coucher des enfants des dirigeants.

L’ambiance dans la capitale et sur la côte est lourde. Mais la population reste soudée. Les Libyens soulignent qu’aucun de leurs problèmes intérieurs ne justifie le recours à la guerre. Ils évoquent des revendications sociales et des questions régionales, comme il en existe dans les États européens, mais rien qui doive conduire à déchirer les familles comme on est en train de le faire en imposant une partition du pays.

Face à l’OTAN, des dizaines de milliers de bourgeois aisés ont plié bagage et sont allés se réfugier dans les pays limitrophes, notamment en Tunisie, laissant aux pauvres le soin de défendre la patrie qui les a enrichis. De nombreux commerces sont fermés sans que l’on sache s’ils doivent faire face à des difficultés d’approvisionnement ou si leurs propriétaires ont fuit.

Comme en Syrie, la plupart des opposants politiques font bloc derrière le gouvernement pour protéger l’intégrité du pays face à l’agression étrangère. Pourtant, certains Libyens, anonymes et invisibles, renseignent l’OTAN pour localiser ses cibles. Jadis leurs parents accueillaient les armées coloniales italiennes, aujourd’hui ils scandent avec leurs homologues de Benghazi : « 1, 2, 3, Sarkozy arrive ! ». Chaque peuple a ses traîtres et ses collabos.

Les exactions commises par les mercenaires du prince Bandar en Cyrénaique ont terminé de convaincre bien des hésitants. La télévision montre en boucle les œuvres des leaders d’Al Qaida en Libye, dont certains ont été libérés directement de Guantanamo pour combattre aux côtés des États-Unis. Des images insoutenables de lynchage et de mutilations dans des villes érigées en Émirats islamistes, à la mode afghane ou irakienne, par des individus deshumanisés par les tortures qu’ils ont subis et excités par des drogues puissantes. Il n’est pas nécessaire d’être un vieux partisan de la Révolution de Kadhafi pour la soutenir aujourd’hui face aux horreurs auxquels se livrent les jihadistes dans les « zones libérées » par l’Alliance [1].

Rien, nulle part, à l’Ouest n’évoque une révolte ou une guerre civile. Pas de barricades, ni de blindés dans les rues. Sur toutes les routes, les autorités ont installé des checks points tous les deux kilomètres. Les automobilistes patientent sagement, eux-mêmes attentifs à découvrir les éléments infiltrés par l’OTAN.

Le colonel Kadhafi arme la population. Près de deux millions de fusils mitrailleurs ont déjà été remis aux civils. L’objectif est que chaque adulte, homme ou femme, puisse défendre sa maison. Les Libyens ont retenu la leçon irakienne. Saddam Hussein avait assis son autorité sur le Baas et l’armée, excluant son peuple de la vie politique. Lorsque le parti fut décapité et que quelques généraux firent défection, l’État s’effondra soudainement laissant le pays sans résistance et plongé dans le chaos. La Libye, elle, est organisée selon un système original de démocratie participative, comparable aux assemblées du Vermont. Les gens sont habitués à être consultés et responsabilisés. Ils sont donc mobilisables en masse.

De manière inattendue, les femmes sont plus déterminées que les hommes à porter les armes. Cela traduit l’accroissement ces dernières années de la participation féminine aux assemblées populaires. Cela reflète peut-être aussi la nonchalance qui s’était emparée des cadres de cet État socialiste à haut niveau de vie.

Chacun a conscience que tout se jouera lorsque les troupes terrestres de l’OTAN débarqueront, si elles osent le faire. La stratégie de défense est donc entièrement conçue pour dissuader un tel débarquement en mobilisant la population. Ici les soldats français, britanniques et US ne seront pas accueillies en libérateurs, mais en envahisseurs coloniaux. Ils devront affronter d’interminables combats urbains.

Les Libyens s’interrogent sur les mobiles exacts de l’OTAN. Je suis surpris de constater que c’est souvent en lisant les articles du Réseau Voltaire, traduits et repris par de nombreux sites Internet et certains journaux imprimés, qu’ils ont été informés des vrais enjeux. Il y a ici, comme partout d’ailleurs, un déficit d’information sur les relations internationales. Les gens connaissent et s’enorgueillissent des initiatives et des réalisations du gouvernement pour l’Unité africaine ou pour le Développement du Tiers-monde, mais ils ignorent bien des aspects de la politique internationale et sous-estiment la capacité de destruction de l’Empire. La guerre semble toujours lointaine jusqu’à ce que le prédateur ne vous choisissent comme proie.

Quel est donc ce succès que l’OTAN annonce imminent ? Pour le moment, le pays est coupé en deux. La Cyrénaique a été proclamée République indépendante, bien qu’on s’y prépare à restaurer la monarchie, et a été reconnue par plusieurs États, à commencer par la France. Cette nouvelle entité est gouvernée de facto par l’OTAN, mais officiellement par un mystérieux Conseil national de transition, jamais élu, et dont les membres —s’ils existent— sont secrets pour ne pas avoir à répondre de leurs actes. Une partie des avoirs libyens a été gelée et est aujourd’hui gérée pour leur plus grand profit par les gouvernements occidentaux. Une partie de la production pétrolière est commercialisée à des conditions défiant toute concurrence aux compagnies occidentales qui se goinfrent. C’est peut-être cela le succès : le pillage colonial.

En lançant des mandats d’arrêts internationaux contre Mouammar Kadhafi, son fils et le chef des services de renseignement intérieur, la Cour pénale internationale cherche à exercer une pression sur les diplomates libyens pour les contraindre à démissionner. Chacun est menacé, en cas de chute de la Jamahiriya, d’être poursuivi pour « complicité de crime contre l’humanité ». Ceux qui démissionnent laisseront une place vacante derrière eux, sans possibilité d’être remplacés. Les mandats d’arrêts ressortent donc d’une politique d’isolement du pays.

La Cour fait aussi de la communication de guerre. Elle qualifie Saif al-Islam de « Premier ministre de facto », ce qu’il n’est surement pas, mais qui donne l’impression d’un régime familial. On retrouve là le principe d’inversion des valeurs typique de la propagande US. Alors que les insurgés de Benghazi brandissent le drapeau de la monarchie Senussi et que le prétendant au trône s’impatiente à Londres, c’est la démocratie participative qui est présentée en régime dynastique.

À l’issue de ces cent premiers jours de conflit, les communiqués de l’OTAN masquent mal la déception. Les Libyens ne se sont pas soulevés contre le « régime », hormis en Cyrénaïque. Aucune solution militaire n’est en vue. Le seul moyen pour l’Alliance atlantique de sortir la tête haute à moindre frais est de se contenter de la partition du pays. Benghazi deviendrait alors l’équivalent de Camp Bondsteel, la méga-base militaire US en Europe, ayant accédé au statut d’État indépendant sous le nom de Kosovo. La Cyrénaïque serait la base qui manquait à l’Africom pour contrôler le continent noir.

Cynthia McKinney Denounces Libya Bombing

Global Research, June 24, 2011
Black Agenda Report – 2011-06-20

“I have been an eyewitness to terror,” says Cynthia McKinney, the former Georgia congresswoman and Green Party presidential candidate whose fact-finding delegation to Libya observed some of the heaviest NATO bombing of Tripoli, the capital. The U.S. corporate media are present in Libya, “but the truth is nowhere to be found,” McKinney told a press conference across the street from United Nations Headquarters in New York City. She is a featured speaker in a nationwide tour sponsored by the ANSWER Coalition, beginning in Harlem on June 25.

Ramsey Clark, former U.S. attorney general and also part of the ANSWER tour, called NATO’s attack on Libya “the last of a long line of assaults on Arab and Muslim peoples.” He challenged the United Nations: “Are the people of the planet powerless to end this tyranny of violence?”

Viola Plummer, of the December 12th Movement, says “Africa is in the crosshairs,” the “focal point for the Empire’s recolonization.” A long list of organizations is planning a “Millions March in Harlem” to demand an “end to the bombing of Libya, the illegal sanctions on Zimbabwe,” and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “destruction of education, housing and health care” in the city.

Min. Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, denounced the United Nations “and all those who have joined to destroy Brother Leader Moammar Gaddafi.” UN Resolution 1973 is being used as a “pretext to assassinate” Gaddafi and “create regime change,” he said. “England, France, Germany, Italy and the United States do not have a good humanitarian history,” and are angry because Gaddafi pushed the foreigners out of Libya, “closed their bases and nationalized its oil.”

Obama’s War Powers Position is “Ludicrous”

Bruce Fein, author of “American Empire: Before the Fall” says, “If another country did to us what we are doing to Libya, we would incinerate it with nuclear weapons.” As to President Obama’s contention that the U.S. is not at war with Libya and, therefore, the War Powers Act has not been triggered, Fein says, “If it’s not war, then the United States is committing murder in Libya.” The White House also claims that no state of war exists because U.S. personnel are in little danger. Says Fein: “The same would be said if the U.S. launched ICBMs with nuclear warheads and utterly destroyed a country,” without itself sustaining casualties.

Frances Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law, called Obama’s position “an insult.” He says the War Powers Act is triggered by “hostilities” with another state. Another provision states the legislation comes into play “any time we are armed in the airspace of another state.” Boyle is offering his services to any congressperson that wants to draw up a Bill of Impeachment against the president.

Bill Quigley, of the Center for Constitutional Rights, points out that candidate Obama spoke against the rise of an imperial presidency. “This is like the King wearing no clothes,” said Quigley, calling Obama’s legal stance “ludicrous.” There is little prospect of judicial restraints on the White House, because “the courts are cowardly.” The Congress may be making loud noises, but the president is telling them, in effect: “I know you’re not going to do anything about it.”
