                                        More Reasons The US Is Attacking Libya

    “The objective of the war against Libya is not just its oil reserves (now estimated at 60 billion barrels), which are the greatest in Africa and whose extraction costs are among the lowest in the world, nor the natural gas reserves of which are estimated at about 1,500 billion cubic meters. In the cross hairs of ‘willing’ of the operation ‘Unified Protector’ there are sovereign wealth funds, capital that the Libyan state has invested abroad. The Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) manages sovereign wealth funds estimated at about $70 billion U.S., rising to more than $150 billion if you include foreign investments of the Central Bank and other bodies. But it might be more. Even if they are lower than those of Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, Libyan sovereign wealth funds have been characterized by their rapid growth. When LIA was established in 2006, it had $40 billion at its disposal. In just five years, LIA has invested over one hundred companies in North Africa, Asia, Europe, the U.S. and South America: holding, banking, real estate, industries, oil companies and others.” Blacklisted News  http://www.blacklistednews.com

    There are a host of reasons the US ruling elites, their European cousins and business partners are bombing Libya. Obama “The Mad Bomber” and the sock puppets in the corporate mind control apparatus tell us this war is a humanitarian mission, an Orwellian  oxymoron if ever there was one. How can killing and maiming people serve to benefit humanity? We know Libya has massive oil and natural gas reserves and any time you see the elites’ GOD (gold, gas, oil and drugs) you know the Luciferi  are licking their chops to steal and expropriate it all. However in the case of Libya the elites are moving on that country because Col. Muammar al-Qadhafi is a thorn in their side. Two years ago Mr. Qadhafi  in a talk with US students at Georgetown University threatened to nationalize Libyan oil and natural gas due to the low prices. In addition he has been a staunch advocate for pan-African solidarity and independence from the European Neo-colonial powers. Libya is one of the few countries not stuck in the spider web of the international money lenders and vampires of the IMF, World Bank and Bank of International Settlements. That alone is enough for these psychopaths to put out a hit on him.

    What, you’ve never heard of the Bank of International Settlements ? Don’t feel bad, it’s a low profile organization, that functions as the Central Bank for all central banks. “For many years the BIS kept a very low profile, operating behind the scenes in an abandoned hotel.  It was here that decisions were reached to devalue or defend currencies, fix the price of gold, regulate offshore banking, and raise or lower short-term interest rates.  In 1977, however, the BIS gave up its anonymity in exchange for more efficient headquarters.  The new building has been described as ‘an eighteen story-high circular skyscraper that rises above the medieval city like some misplaced nuclear reactor.’  It quickly became known as the ‘Tower of Basel.’  Today the BIS has governmental immunity, pays no taxes, and has its own private police force. It is, as Mayer Rothschild envisioned, above the law.  The BIS is now composed of 55 member nations, but the club that meets regularly in Basel is a much smaller group; and even within it, there is a hierarchy.  In a 1983 article in Harper’s Magazine called ‘Ruling the World of Money,’ Edward Jay Epstein wrote that where the real business gets done is in ‘a sort of inner club made up of the half dozen or so powerful central bankers who find themselves more or less in the same monetary boat’ – those from Germany, the United States, Switzerland, Italy, Japan and England.” The Tower of Basel: Secretive Plans for The Issuing Of A Global Currency by Ellen Brown www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=13239

    In addition to Libya not being a part of the global central banking system run by the Bank of International Settlements out of Basel, Switzerland, Qadhafi irritated the global financial elites by lending money and supporting projects throughout Africa which was taking profits from the IMF, World Bank and the BIS loan sharks. Qadhafi was costing them billions in interest and the ability to swoop in and steal the country’s assets once the countries got in over their heads in IMF and World Bank debt. In addition to that, Libya was investing its oil and gas wealth in other countries around the world. This accumulated capital and surplus is called sovereign wealth and Libya had a lot. The operative word here is had. The global thugs and their henchmen coveted these funds and like all thieves and crooks they couldn’t wait to get their hands on this money. So they bum rushed Libya using the pretext of helping the rebels who they instigated into insurrection so they could get their filthy hands on the oil, gas and sovereign wealth of Libya.

    “U.S. and European ruling circles focused on these funds, so that before carrying out a military attack on Libya to get their hands on its energy wealth, they took over the Libyan sovereign wealth funds. Facilitating this operation is the representative of the Libyan Investment Authority, Mohamed Layas himself: as revealed in a cable published by WikiLeaks. On January 20 Layas informed the U.S. ambassador in Tripoli that LIA had deposited $32 billion in U.S. banks. Five weeks later, on February 28, the U.S. Treasury ‘froze’ these accounts. According to official statements, this is ‘the largest sum ever blocked in the United States,’ which Washington held “in trust for the future of Libya.” It will in fact serve as an injection of capital into the U.S. economy, which is more and more in debt. A few days later, the EU ‘froze’ around 45 billion Euros of Libyan funds.” Financial Heist of the Century: Confiscating Libya’s Sovereign Wealth Funds by  Manlio Dinucci  http://www.blacklistednews.com/Financial_Heist_of_the_Century

Stealing this money will have a devastating impact on African development and economic independence. “The assault on the Libyan sovereign wealth funds will have a particularly strong impact in Africa. There, the Libyan Arab African Investment Company had invested in over 25 countries, 22 of them in sub-Saharan Africa, and was planning to increase the investments over the next five years, especially in mining, manufacturing, tourism and telecommunications. The Libyan investments have been crucial in the implementation of the first telecommunications satellite Rascom (Regional African Satellite Communications Organization), which entered into orbit in August 2010, allowing African countries to begin to become independent from the U.S. and European satellite networks, with an annual savings of hundreds of millions of dollars. Even more important were the Libyan investment in the implementation of three financial institutions launched by the African Union: the African Investment Bank, based in Tripoli, the African Monetary Fund, based in Yaoundé (Cameroon), the African Central Bank, with Based in Abuja (Nigeria). The development of these bodies would enable African countries to escape the control of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, tools of neo-colonial domination, and would mark the end of the CFA franc, the currency that 14 former French colonies are forced to use.” ibid

Not content to rob and fleece us out of our savings, pension funds, Social Security Trust Fund, 401K  etc here in the US these Kleptocrats  are out to control and steal it all; wherever it exists, here or abroad. “The bank (BIS) also controls a huge amount of gold, which it both stores and lends out, giving it great leverage over the metal’s price and the marketplace power that brings, since gold is still the only universal currency. BIS gold reserves were listed on its 2005 annual report (the most recent) as 712 tons. How that breaks down into member banks’ deposits and the BIS personal stash is unknown. By controlling foreign exchange currency, plus gold, the BIS can go a long way toward determining the economic conditions in any given country. Remember that the next time Ben Bernanke or European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet announces an interest rate hike. You can bet it didn’t happen without the concurrence of the BIS Board.” The Most Powerful Bank You Never Heard Of  www.escapeartist.com/Offshore/Articles/Bank

Operating independently of these shysters and crooks who only deal with the private central banks that control their nations interest rates, money supply and monetary policy is a no no. By Qadhafi lending money to African nations, threatening to nationalize Libya’s oil and gas and making huge sums of money on his international investments he was setting a precedent the BIS vampires could not allow. So the US CIA and British MI6 funded provocateurs to create an internal crisis to give the banksters and oil conglomerates a pretext to send in their enforcement arm: NATO and the combined militaries of the US England and France to instigate regime change and the theft of Libya’s wealth under the guise of a humanitarian mission. Don’t believe the hype this is a straight up bogart to steal Libya’s wealth and resources.

Quote of fresh and selected news: 

Silence is the deadliest weapon of mass destruction, by Ms Cynthia McKinney”





(LIBYA the truth about the Al Jazeera's Beirut Bureau Chief, Ghassan Ben Jeddo, Resigns

For those who missed it, senior journalist resigns from Al-Jazeera and staff unhappy at unprofessional coverage of Libya (massacres that never took place but were repeated over and over) and Bahrain (massacres that did take place and have been all but ignored)

by Yoshie Furuhashi

Ghassan Ben Jeddo

As-Safir, a left-wing Lebanese newspaper, first reported on Saturday that Al Jazeera's Beirut bureau chief Ghassan Ben Jeddo resigned.  The news has now been confirmed by Al-Manar, which has interviewed Ben Jeddo.

According to As-Safir, Ben Jeddo resigned first and foremost because "Al Jazeera abandoned an ideal of objectivity and professionalism and resorted to gutter journalism, which has turned Al Jazeera from a media source to the operations room for incitement and mobilization," unacceptable especially in light of the historic turning point facing the region.

Moreover, As-Safir says that Ben Jeddo was particularly angered by Al Jazeera's scant coverage of the bloodshed in Bahrain, in sharp contrast to the intensive coverage that it has given to Libya, Yemen, and now Syria.

Regarding Ben Jeddo's view of Syria, As-Safir notes in passing that he supports the right of Syrians to protest in the streets for reform and freedom, but that he also champions the national project and regional role of Syria.

Ben Jeddo, the former host of the Hiwar Maftuh [Open Dialogue] program on Al Jazeera, was "one of the most visible personalities of the network," and his resignation "will bring further embarrassment to the network," in the words of As'ad AbuKhalil, a professor of political science at California State University, Stanislaus.  AbuKhalil adds in his blog The Angry Arab News Service: "I have heard from a number of people who work in Aljazeera Arabic and English and I am hearing that the majority are quite irate at the coverage of the network especially in relation to the Bahrain issue."

Putin criticized NATO over its military intervention in Libya

Written by Admin Wednesday, 27 April 2011 03:02


http://previous.presstv.ir/photo/20110426/mazimi20110426213836983.jpgRussian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has criticized NATO over its military intervention in Libya, saying the West has violated the UN mandate by trying to kill Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi. "They said they didn't want to kill Gaddafi. Now some officials say, yes, we are trying to kill Gaddafi. Who permitted this, was there any trial? Who took on the right to execute this man, no matter who he is?" Reuters quoted Putin as saying on Tuesday.

Putin's remarks come a day after NATO warplanes targeted a building inside Gaddafi's compound in the Libyan capital Tripoli.

After talks with his Danish counterpart Lars Lokke Rasmussen in Copenhagen, the Russian premier said the so-called civilized societies have ganged up against Libya.

He seemed to be tacitly inferring that the West is attempting to gain control of the North African country's vast reserves of oil.

Since the outset of airstrikes against Libya, Russia has repeatedly criticized the West, saying UN Security Council Resolution 1973, which authorized a no-fly zone over Libya to protect civilians, is “a call for a crusade” and has backfired by causing civilian casualties.

“Surely people are being killed in these strikes -- Gaddafi is not there, he slipped away long ago, but peaceful civilians are dying,” Putin said.

Russia abstained in the UN Security Council vote which mandated a no-fly zone over Libya.

Earlier, Putin had called the Nato attacks on Libya as reminiscent of the days of the 'Crusaders' attacks in the Middle East.

Libya urges Russia to call a UN Security Council meeting.

TRIPOLI, April 26 (Xinhua) -- Libya urged Russia on Tuesday to call an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council to discuss what it called the "colonial and crusader aggression" against the North African country, state-run JANA news agency reported.

"Libya officially urged Russia to ask the UNSC to convene an urgent meeting to discuss the crusader aggression against Libyan civilian sites, and the attempt to target leader Muammar Gaddafi," JANA said.

The Libyan government accused NATO Monday of trying to assassinate Gaddafi after the coalition sent at least two large guided bombs into the sprawling office, residential and military complex where he lives in Tripoli, destroying offices and a library.

Libyan state TV said, without giving details, late on Monday that the "crusader aggressors" bombed civilian and military sites in Bir al-Ghanam, 100 km south of Tripoli, and the Ayn Zara area of the capital, causing casualties.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin earlier criticized the NATO-led coalition enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya, saying they have gone beyond the UN mandate.

NATO has been enforcing a UN resolution to protect civilians in Libya since mid March.

Thousands in Germany March Against Libyan, Afghan Wars

Thousands of people marched across Germany to protest against NATO's wars in Libya and Afghanistan as part of the country's traditional Easter marches. German peace and church groups as well as labor unions have planned numerous anti-war campaigns over the Easter holidays in major German cities and towns, including Berlin, Dortmund, Bremen Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Nuremberg, Duesseldorf and Stuttgart.

Several US military bases in smaller German cities like Ramstein, Ansbach, Wiesbaden, Heidelberg were also targeted by peace demonstrators as Germany is a major logistics center for US military operations abroad and was also the staging ground for American wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.

The German peace rallies focus this year mostly on NATO's escalating war in Libya.

A NATO member, Germany is not directly supporting the mission of the western military alliance in the north African country.

The Easter marches dwell also on the need for global disarmament, specifically the removal of some 20 US nuclear weapons based in Germany.

The German peace movement has repeatedly called for the abolition of all nuclear weapons and has used the Eastern peace marches to press the center-right government of Chancellor Angela Merkel to step up its campaign for a nuke-free Germany.
In fact, the history of Easter peace marches dates back to over 50 years and reached its peak when more than 500,000 people demonstrated against the controversial deployment of medium-range US Pershing missiles in Europe in the early 1980s.

However, public interest in the Easter marches has significantly faded since the end of the Cold War.

Libya and the Imperial Re-Division of Africa The Imperialist Powers' Odyssey of “Return” into Africa

By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya


Plans to attack Libya have been longstanding. The imperial war machine of the United States, Britain, France, Italy, and their NATO allies is involved in a new military adventure that parallels the events that led to the wars against Yugoslavia and Iraq. The war machine has been mobilized under the cover of “humanitarian intervention.”

In fact what the Pentagon and NATO have done is breach international law by intervening on the side of one of the combating parties in Libya in a civil war that they themselves have encouraged and fuelled. They have not protected civilians, but have launched a war against the Libyan regime in Tripoli and actively assisted the Benghazi-based Transitional Council in fighting the Libyan military.

Before the rapprochement with Colonel Qaddafi, for years the U.S., Britain, France, and their allies worked to destabilize Libya. Confirmed by U.S. government sources, Washington attempted regime change in Tripoli several times.[1] According to General Wesley Clark, former NATO commander, the Pentagon had active plans for launching a war against Libya.

The U.S. and its NATO allies are now embroiled in a new war that has the patented characteristics of the wars and invasions of Iraq and the former Yugoslavia.

A large naval armada off the shores of Libya has been bombing Libya for weeks with the declared objective of ousting the Libyan regime. At the same time, Libyan internal divisions are being fuelled.

Misinformation is systematically being spewed. Like Saddam Hussein before him, the U.S. and the E.U. have armed and helped Colonel Qaddafi. It is, therefore, important to hold the U.S. and the E.U. accountable for these weapon sales and the training of Libyan forces.

Also, like in Iraq, another Arab dictator was befriended by the U.S., only to be subsequently betrayed. 

Prior to Iraq’s rapprochement with the U.S., at the outset of the Iraq-Iran War, Saddam Hussein was a Soviet ally and considered an enemy by Washington.

The case of Colonel Qaddafi is in many regards similar. Ironically, Qaddafi had warned Arab leaders in 2008 at a meeting in Damascus under the auspices of the Arab League about regime change. He pointed to the U.S. government’s “bad habit” of betraying its Arab dictator friends: 

Why won’t the [U.N.] Security Council investigate the hanging of Saddam Hussein? How could the leader of an Arab League state be hanged? I am not talking about Saddam Hussein’s policies or our [meaning the other Arab leaders] animosity towards him. We all had our disagreements with him. We all disagree with one another. Nothing unites us except this hall. Why is there not an investigation about Saddam Hussein’s execution?

An entire Arab government is killed and hung on the gallows – Why?! In the future it is going to be your turns too! [The rest of the Arab officials gathered start laughing] Indeed!

America fought alongside Saddam Hussein against Khomeini [in the Iraq-Iran War]. He was their friend. Cheney was a friend of Saddam Hussein. Rumsfeld, the [U.S.] defence secretary during the bombing of Iraq [in 2003], was a close friend of Saddam Hussein.

At the end they sold him out. They hung him. Even you [the Arab leaders] who are the friends of America – no I will say we – we, the friends of America, America may approve of our hanging one day. [2]

At the end of the 1991 Gulf War, the U.S. deliberately encouraged open revolt against Saddam Hussein’s regime, but stood back and watched as Saddam Hussein put down the Iraqi revolts by force.

In 2011, they have done the same thing against Qaddafi and his regime in Libya. Not only was the revolt in Libya instigated by Washington and its allies, the rebels have been supplied with weapons and military advisers. 

When the U.S. and its allies triggered the anti-Saddam revolts in Baghdad in the wake of the Gulf War, “no-fly zones” over Iraq were established by the U.S., Britain, and France under the pretext of protecting “the Iraqi people from Saddam.” For years Iraq was systematically attacked. The Iraqi Republic was bombed and its capabilities to defend itself were eroded.

Today, the U.S. and its allies have imposed a no-fly zone over Libya with the pretext of protecting “the Libyan people from Qaddafi.” If they wanted to protect the Libyan people from Qaddafi, why did they arm Qaddafi in the first place? Why did they enter into business transactions in the wake of the 2006 and 2008 anti-government riots in Libya? There is much more to this narrative, which is part of a broader march to war.

A New Imperial Re-Division of Africa: The London Conference

The London Conference on Libya reveals the true colours of the coalition formed against Libya. In a clear breach of international law, the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, and their allies are making decisions about the future of Libya ahead of any changes on the ground. [4] Democracy is a bottom-up process and Libyan governance is an internal matter to be decided upon by the Libyans themselves. These decisions can not be made by foreign powers that have been the staunch supporters of some of the worst dictatorships.

The nations gathered at the conference table in London have no right whatsoever to decide on whether Qaddafi must stay or go. This is a sovereignty right that only Libyans alone have. Their involvement in the civil war is a breach of international law, as is their siding with one of the camps in the civil war.

The London Conference on Libya can be likened to the Berlin Conference of 1884. Unlike 1884, this conference is aimed at dividing the spoils of war in Libya, instead of the direct carving up of an entire continent. Also, Washington, instead of staying away like in 1884, is the leading power in this new conference involving the affairs of the African continent.   

The position of the U.S. and its Western European allies is very clear:

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and British Foreign Secretary William Hague led the crisis talks in London between 40 countries and institutions, all seeking an endgame aimed at halting Gadhafi’s bloody onslaught against Libya’s people.

Although the NATO-led airstrikes on Gadhafi’s forces that began March 19 aren’t aimed at toppling him, dozens of nations agreed in the talks that Libya’s future does not include the dictator at the helm.

“Gadhafi has lost the legitimacy to lead, so we believe he must go. We’re working with the international community to try to achieve that outcome,” Clinton told reporters.

As she spoke, U.S. officials announced that American ships and submarines in the Mediterranean had unleashed a barrage of cruise missiles at Libyan missile storage facilities in the Tripoli area late Monday and early Tuesday — the heaviest attack in days.

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle echoed Clinton’s point.

“One thing is quite clear and has to be made very clear to Gadhafi: His time is over. He must go,” Westerwelle said. “We must destroy his illusion that there is a way back to business as usual if he manages to cling to power.” [4]

The London Conference on Libya, however, not only deals solely with Libya, but holds the blue prints to a new imperialist re-division of the entire Africa continent. Libya, which became a holdout when Qaddafi changed his mind, will be used to complete the “Union of the Mediterranean” and as a new bridgehead into Africa. This is the start of major steps that will be taken by the U.S. and the E.U. to purge the growing Chinese presence from Africa.

A New Imperial Re-Division of Africa: “Operation Odyssey Dawn”

The name “Operation Odyssey Dawn” is very revealing. It identifies the strategic intent and direction of the war against Libya.

The Odyssey is an ancient Greek epic by the poet Homer which recounts the voyage and trails of the hero Odysseus of Ithaca on his way home. The main theme here is the “return home.”

The U.S. and the imperialist powers are on their own odyssey of “return” into Africa.

This project is also intimately related to the broader military agenda in Southwest Asia and the drive into Eurasia, which ultimately targets Russia, China, and Central Asia.

Washington’s military agenda pertains  to the African and the Eurasian landmass, namely a supercontinent known as the “World-Island.” It is control of the World-Island that is the object of U.S. strategies.

The U.S. and NATO have triggered a civil war in Libya, as their pretext for longstanding plans of military aggression. A systematic media disinformation campaign, similar to the one used against Iraq from 1991 to 2003, has been launched.

In fact, the media has led the way for the war in Libya as it did in the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The U.S. and its cohorts have also used the atmosphere of popular revolt in the Arab World as a cloud to insert and support their own agenda in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.

The Libyan Prize of the Mediterranean 

There is an old Libyan proverb that says “if your pocket becomes empty, your faults will be many.” In this context, Libyan internal tensions are not dominated by breadbasket issues. This sets Libya apart from Arab countries like Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Morocco, and Jordan. [5] In Libya, the lack of freedom as well as rampant corruption has created opposition to the regime, which has been used by the U.S. and its allies as a pretext to justify foreign intervention. 

Libya has come a long way since 1951 when it became an independent country. In 1975, the political scientist Henri Habib described these conditions:

When Libya was granted its independence by the United Nations on December 24, 1951, it was described as one of the poorest and most backward nations of the world. The population at the time was not more than 1.5 million, was over 90% illiterate, and had no political experience or knowhow. There were no universities, and only a limited number of high schools which had been established seven years before independence. [6]

According to Habib the state of poverty in Libya was the result of the yoke of Ottoman domination followed by an era of European imperialism in Libya. [7] Habib explains: “Every effort was made to keep the Arab inhabitants [of Libya] in a servile position rendering them unable to make any progress for themselves or their nation.” [8]  He also explains:

The climax of this oppression came during the Italian administration (1911 – 1943) when the Libyans were not only oppressed by the [foreign] authorities, but were also subjected to the loss and deprivation of their most fertile land which went to colonists brought in from Italy. The British and French who replaced the Italians in 1943 attempted to entrench themselves in [Libya] by various divisive ways, ultimately to fail through a combination of political events and circumstances beyond the control of any one nation. [9]

Despite political mismanagement and corruption, Libya’s oil reserves (discovered in 1959) were used to improve the standard of living for its population. Libya has the highest standards of living in Africa.

In addion to its energy reserves, the Libyan state played an important role. Libyan energy reserves were nationalized after the 1969 coup against the Libyan monarchy. It should be noted that these Libyan energy reserves are a source of wealth in Libya that if fully privatized would be a lucrative spoil of war.

To a certain extent, the isolation of Libya in the past as a pariah state has also played a role in insulating Libya. As most of the world has become globalized from an economic standpoint, Libyan integration into the global economy has in a sense been delayed.

Despite having vast sums of money stolen and squandered by Qaddafi’s family and their officials, social services and benefits, such as government housing, are also available in Libya. It has to be cautioned too that none of this means that neo-liberal restructuring and poverty are not afoot in Libya, because they very much are.

Until the conflict in 2011 ignited, there was a huge foreign work force in Libya. Thousands of foreign workers from every corner of the globe went to Libya for employment. This included nationals from Turkey, China, sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, the European Union, Russia, Ukraine, and the Arab World.

Neo-Liberalism and the New Libya: Saif Al-Islam Qaddafi and Rapprochement

From 2001 to 2003, a process of rapprochement began between Libya and the U.S. and its E.U. partners. What changed? Colonel Qaddafi did not stop being a dictator or change his behaviour. Rapprochement brought an end to Tripoli’s defiance to its former colonial masters. Libya had bowed to U.S. and E.U. pressures and a modus vivandi came into effect.

Qaddafi’s credentials as a democrat or a dictator were never an issue. Nor was the use of brute force. Subservience was the real issue.

The force used against the riots in 2006 and 2008 did not even faze the E.U. and Washington, which continued their “business as usual” with Tripoli. Even U.S. government sources implied that economic interests should not be jeopardized by issues of international law or justice; for example, BP pressured the British government in 2007 to move forward with a prisoner exchange with Libya so that a Libyan oil contract could be protected. [10]

Almost overnight, Libya became a new business bonanza for U.S. and E.U. corporations, especially in the energy sectors. These lucrative contracts also included military contracts of the order of $482 million (U.S.) in military hardware, training, and software from E.U. members (including chemical and biological agents). [11]

Yet, two more things were demanded by Washington, namely the imposition of an imperial tribute as well as the the opening up of the Libyan military and intelligence apparatus to U.S. influence. As a result Libya ended all support for the Palestinians and handed the U.S. government its dossiers on resistance groups opposed to Washington, London, Tel Aviv and their allies. This turned Libya into a so-called “partner” in the “Global War on Terrorism.” Washington would get involved in all aspects of Libyan state security:

Although U.S. sanctions on Libya were lifted in 2004 and terrorism-related restrictions on foreign assistance were rescinded in 2006, Congress acted to limit the Bush Administration’s ability to provide foreign assistance to Libya as a means of pressuring the Administration and the Libyan government to resolve outstanding terrorism claims. The Bush Administration’s October 2008 certification […] ended standing restrictions on the provision of U.S. foreign assistance contained in appropriations legislation for FY2008 and FY2009. Assistance requests submitted by the Bush and Obama Administrations for FY2009 and FY2010 included funding for programs to reengage with Libyan security forces after “a 35-year break in contact” with their U.S. counterparts and to support Libyan efforts to improve security capabilities in areas of common concern, such as border control, counterterrorism, and export/import monitoring. [12]

Libya has also become active in global banking and finance. The U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of New York even made 73 loans to the Arab Banking Corporation (ABC), which is a bank mostly owned by the Central Bank of Libya, totalling an amount of $35 billion (U.S.). [13] According to Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont in a complaint to U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Benjamin Bernanke, the mostly Libyan-owned bank received over $26 billion (U.S.) in near zero interest rate loans from the U.S. Federal Reserve that it has been lending back to the U.S. Treasury at a higher interest rate. [14] The Arab Banking Corporation is currently exempted from sanctions on Libya and may serve in creating a fiscal link between Wall Street and Benghazi.

Saif Al-Islam Qaddafi was vital in this process of opening up Libya to trade with Washington and the European Union. In 2000 Saif Al-Islam graduated from a university in Austria and became heavily tied to foreign associates who became his policy advisors and friends.

Prince Andrew of Britain reportedly became a close friend of Said Al-Islam: so close that Chris Bryant, a senior Labour Party politician, demanded in the British House of Commons that Prince Andrew be removed from his position as special trade envoy at the start of the conflict with Libya. [15]

Western advisors to Tripoli played an important role in shaping Libyan policy. A “New Libya” started to emerge under Saif Al-Islam, who pushed for the adoption of IMF-style neo-liberal economic reforms. 

Starting in 2005-2006, significant social and income disparities started to emerge in Libya. The Libyan Revolutionary Committees Movement was in large part disbanded by Saif Al-Islam. Had the Committees Movement remained, they would most probably have sought to prevent the present conflict from escalating.

Moreover, Saif Al-Islam went to London and established ties in Britain with Noman Benotman, a former leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG). [16] He became friends with Benotman.

Supported by Saif Al-Islam, Benotman and Ali Al-Sallabi, a Libyan citizen based in Qatar (who was on Tripoli’s terrorist list), negotiated a truce between the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and the Libyan government.

It is also worth noting that all the ministers and ambassadors who defected or left Libya were chosen by Saif Al-Islam.

As in the case of the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s, the neo-liberal reforms applied in Libya created social and income disparities which in turn contributed to political instability.

Rapprochement with Tripoli and Imperial Extortion

In late-2008, the U.S. government got Tripoli to pay what was tantamount to an “imperial tribute.” Libya capitulated and agreed to an uneven reparation agreement with Washington. The agreement is called the “Claims Settlement Agreement between the United States of America and the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab.” Under the agreement Libya would concede $1.3 billion U.S. dollars to Washington, while Washington would give the Libyans $300 million U.S. dollars. Article 4 of the agreement’s annex states:

Once contributions to the Fund Account reach the amount of U.S. $1.8 billion (one billion eight hundred million U.S. dollars), the amount of U.S. $1.5 billion (one billion five hundred million U.S. dollars) shall be deposited into Account A [the U.S. account] and the amount of U.S. $300 million (three hundred million U.S. dollars) shall be deposited into Account B [Libya’s account], which in both cases shall constitute the receipt of resources under Article III (2) of the Agreement. [17]

Despite all this, Libya has remained a relatively wealthy country. In 2010, Tripoli even made an offer to buy a portion of British Petroleum (BP), one of the world’s largest corporations. [18] The National Oil Company of Libya also remains one of the largest oil companies in the world.

Even with the lucrative business deals that resulted from the rapprochement, the U.S. and the E.U. have always had an objective of furthering their gains and control. The E.U. powers and Washington merely waited for the right opportunity. Plans for taking over and controlling Libya and the Libyan energy sector were never abandoned. Nor could Washington and Western Europe accept anything less than a full-fledged puppet government in Libya.

Upheaval and Qaddafi’s Response

Even with the rapprochement with Tripoli, the U.S. and its E.U. partners continued to cultivated ties to so-called “opposition” figures and organizations with a view to implementing regime change at some future date. This is why the National Salvation Front of Libya has been mostly active in Washington. In the words of a timely Congressional Research Service (CRS) report (February 18, 2011):

The National Conference for the Libyan Opposition (an umbrella organization of opposition groups headed by the National Libyan Salvation Front (NLSF) […]) and Internet-based organizers called for a “day of rage” to take place on February 17. Similar events had been organized by anti-government groups in many other countries in the Middle East and North Africa over the previous month. On February 17, [2011] hundreds of protestors took to the streets in Benghazi and in other cities in its vicinity. [19]

Colonel Qaddafi has ruled Libya under a harsh dictatorship that has systematically used violence and fear. Yet, the level of violence that has put Libya in a state of upheaval has been distorted. [20] Many of the initial reports coming out of Libya in early-2011 were also unverified and in many cases misleading. These reports have to be studied very carefully. According to the same CRS report prepared for the U.S. Congress, initial reports all came from “local [Libyan] media accounts, amateur video footage and anecdotes, and reports from human rights organizations and opposition groups in exile.” [21]

Qaddafi’s objectives are to preserve his regime and not to undo it. After Qaddafi became aware of the growing foreign threat directed towards his regime, the use of force was on the whole restrained. The regime in Tripoli did not want to give further excuses to the U.S., the E.U., and NATO for military intervention in Libya.

Qaddafi had exercised restraint for the sake of preserving his dictatorship. The Libyan regime knew very well that a bloody civil war would be used as a justification for intervention under a humanitarian pretext. That is why Qaddafi opted to try to negotiate where he could instead of using force. The use of violence is not to the favour of the Libyan regime or Libya, but rather works in the favour of the U.S. and the E.U. states.

Are Obama supporters supporting the Murder of Afrikans, by info-moetry

I was just curious as to the feelings on this sneak attack guised under enforcing a 'no fly zone' by Obama supporters.

I didn't want to pre-judge and not saying that ya'll haven't spoken up and out about it, but i haven't seen/read anything by way of that! It seems that ya'll have been rather quiet as he bombs and continues to bomb Afikans...

Do you have any feelings on it one way or the other, or do you feel this is what you voted him in to do and he will make up for it if 'we' can get him elected for a second term?

My feelings about the silence is that you actually condone it, but i could be wrong.

The Most Visible Potent Enemy Against Black People And Afrika Today, Is The President Of The United states!!!

By Chief Elder Osiris

There Is Much More Where This Come From.

Keep Sharing The Divine Truth And Maybe, Just Maybe Somebody Black Might Hear You!!!

There is no greater terror being acted out in Afrika and against the Afrikan Libya People than what is going on today in Afrika Libya, which sends a psychological rein of terror throughout Black Afrika.

Therefore, the major terrorist of Black Afrikan people in Afrika, thus against all Black Afrikans who have a Spiritual connection to Afrika the continent, happen to be the president of the United states Of America.

Any Support given to the President Of America by Black people, immediately condemn the president supporters to be a party to the crime now being committed in Afrika Libya.

There is no Black afrikan, where ever on this planet, that can show Divine Justification for what the President Of The USA is doing to Afrika Libya today, and as he does it to one of Afrika States, so does he to all of Black Afrika States.

So the President Of The USA, has ordered the disrespect for the sovereignty of Afrika States, by violating the sovereignty Of Afrika Libya.

Yet the President make claim to be Black, but not Afrikan, he does nothing to transform the evil Spirit of America toward Afrika and Black Afrikan People, yet you Black Americans and other non Thinking Black afrikans in other part of this evil world, you do nothing bur cheer on this long standing evil toward afrika and Black people, we who the President is dead set on maintaining the America tradition against Afrika and Black Afrikan people.

 Which is to show nothing but disrespect toward afrika and our Enslaved ancestors, we all being of the Genetic root of our Ancient Cosmic Divine First Way Ancestors, which by the present mental display going on by the president Of The USA, verify an action of complete disrespect toward the Root Of Our Black Afrikan DNA, which in translation, happen to be our Ancient Cosmic Divine First Way Ancestors.

Yet here most of you so call Black Americans, getting all geared up to support the president for another run for the Presidency in and of America.

There is no clearer evidence that Black people in the world who are excited over the president Of The USA, function under the Mind guidance of Lucifer the Human Being, he who his confessed to you in his written bible of Religion, to be no more than a Liar and deceiver, and to have never been perfect in spiritual display.

It is the Luciferian spirit that the President Of The USA display toward Afrika and the Black Afrikan People, he who make claim not to identify with Race as being a natural acceptance of biological classification distinction.

The President of The USA, without doubt, dismiss the Divine Right of our Enslaved Ancestors to Reparation, as if to say that Chattel slavery victims in term of Justice entitle to them, has an expiration date, when in fact our Enslaved Ancestors never experienced a date whereby Justice was an experience of their Black Afrikan Enslaved lives in and by America, in or out of Afrika.

The Selection of Obama to become the appearance of a Black America President, has set all that prior Black Afrikans warriors  have done, fighting to bring justice, Respect, and Freedom to Afrika and Black People.

He has set Black people back  Thousands of years, in the era of inferiority complex mental expression and none action of self protection and respect.

The present president Of The USA, do not misunderstand me, if that is what you want, then you are elated, excited over America president, which no doubt is your choice and because your Mind does not extend beyond America in term of your life expectation, then to you, America has done a great service to you black Americans by selecting Obama to appear to be as you are, Black American.

Therefore, whatsoever decisions Obama make about Reparation, about Afrika Libya, and who he is president of, without obligation of favor to the victims of Racism, discrimination, and unjustified Prejudice, that is just alright with the Black Americans, you who are in favor of the attack upon Afrika Libya, the assassination of Qaddafi and the show of disrespect toward our Enslaved ancestors.

The Black American is as well, an enemy to the Black Afrikan Race and Afrika as well.

The Black Afrikan In America will not be able to deal with our obligation to ourselves and to our Enslaved Ancestors, and to Afrika, and to bringing Unity to the black Nation, not until we come to know and recognize the enemy to Black people Freedom to be in Afrika.

Be kind to yourselves, Beloved.

Rebels and citizens of Misurata celebrated late Saturday after hearing reports that Seif al-Arab el-Qaddafi was killed in a NATO airstrike.

Did Obama lie when during the presidential campaign, he said he is willing to sit down with other leaders, such as Honorable Gaddafi...and like minds?


If he lie and the Bombing continue after Hon. Gaddafi made his request below, then all those who did not respect Libya Afrika talk, are evilly, demonically, disrespectful...and the likes of.




Are the Obama Supporters Supporting the killing, stealing, destruction (evil motto) of Divine Black True teachers/leaders, the Black Afrikan family and Beloved Afrika?

A Divine Righteous Anger answer, Hell the Yes they are?


Most of our people have Mastered the Art of helping others kill, steal and destroy our people and Beloved Afrika.


Libya's Gaddafi offers ceasefire, but will not leave


Kadhafi call for Libya talks rejected

In an early-morning speech on state television, the Libyan leader said NATO "must abandon all hope of his departure.

"I have no official functions to give up: I will not leave my country and will fight to the death," he said.

But he added a conciliatory note.

"We are ready to talk with France and the United States, but with no preconditions," Kadhafi said.

"We will not surrender, but I call on you to negotiate. If you want petrol, we will sign contracts with your companies -- it is not worth going to war over.

"Between Libyans, we can solve our problems without being attacked, so pull back your fleets and your planes," he told NATO.

Punk Black males and females (MOST), not ALL.



A Call To Arms Part I--Punk Black males
By Shaka Barak
Dedicated To Del Jones

Punk Black males hiding behind Religion, Spirituality, Hebrewism, Capitalism,
Socialism, Communism, Pan Afrikanism, Nationalism, Integration, Miscegenation,
Maat, Kemetism, Revolutionism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddism, Jehovahism, Civil Rights,
Reparations, Repatriation while our children die. 100,000 murders of our children by our
youth and others everyday and not one Black man has died trying to defend one Black
Child's life except for firemen and policemen and most of the time they don't know that
the child in the burning building is Black.

Punk Black males have figured out how the white man was raised off his all fours and
taught to look up towards the sky by the African race, who are the original men and
women. Punk Black men can tell the world that it was the African who built the first
civilizations and gave art, science, math and literature to the world. Punk Black males
can tell of the Genius of our race in peace and in war under our great leaders of the past.
But these same Punk Black males can't muster the strength to meet the manhood level of
his counterparts today unless he is in the service of other races, as their dogs, that are
told when to bark and bite and who to bark at and who to bite.

Punk Black males say they will kill somebody about messing with their child or children
but the funny thing is they haven't killed anybody but their child and children are not
only messed with, but dead and dying if not physically then from the drugs and alcohol
they consume.

These cowards include our elders who are manning the ship of the destiny of the African
race and are not living up to the standards of manhood produced by the leading and
dominant races and nations on this planet. Bill Withers' window raising granny and
grandpas have abandoned their posts and Jr. has run off with the shotgun they used to
have at that window.

Males who are not organized, not willing and therefore not able to defend our race
parade themselves across the tabloids, TV screens and you hear their female voices on
radio stations, sometime in groups of five, ten, fifteen, twenty at a time, with no clue of
what to do and afraid to do it if they knew it.

They can say 'It's glorious to die for a cause' only in a Last Poets poem. Every race
comes into the Black Punk males so-called community, that has the fastest growing
number of homosexuals that are about to outnumber heterosexual males, and pimp slaps
the Punks and then walks way with the community's money in a Black bag that they take
to their own community.

Black Punk men don't even know how to fight except prize fighters and martial artists
but most can't fight, can't box, can't use a knife, can't shoot a weapon and this has bred a
race of youth who resort to guns, cause they can't fight, cause their Punk daddies that are
around can't fight, box, use a knife or a gun.

Punk Black males joined marches that call for putting down the guns when the whites
who surround them and protect their marches all carry guns and wear vests and are
ready to use their guns on the marchers if they got the chance.

The other races make guns faster than you could ever collect and destroy them, in these
phony gun collection drives that pay a gang banger $100 for an old gun, so he can then
buy three more guns with that same $100.

Pretty soon, in about 20 years, the Punk Black males and so-called leaders will be dead
and out of the way. The youth don't respect these leaders that push them into so-called
educational systems where not only are they not safe, but where most fail and drop out
after they get their training to end up in jail.

The Punk Black males have shown our youth over and over how they are high paid
speakers and brokers of our pain, who position themselves to be male whores in the
name of civil rights or some revolutionary crap. Punk Black males are afraid of our
youth so much that they don't even drive in the hood at night and piss on themselves if
five youth approach them from the front not just walk up from behind them.

In Call To Arms Part II I will give solutions to the killing of our youth.

CALL TO DIVINE ARMS-The Below, No Punk Black Afrikan female

Yaa Asantewa
(d. 1921)
The Asante Wars

The British found few people as difficult to subdue as the Asante of Ghana in their quest to build their West African colonial empire. The Asante Wars against the British, which began in 1805, lasted a hundred years. Although outmatched by superior weaponry, the Asante kept the British army at bay for a short final period of independence.

When all seemed lost, their power broken, their king (Prempeh I) exiled, Yaa Asantewa, the Queen Mother of Ejisu, rallied the Asante troops into war.

After being told by Sir Frederick Hodgson that King Prempeh I would not be returned, and further having insult added to injury by demanding that the people surrender the Golden Stool, the men went home to prepare for war.

In the evening, the chiefs held a secret meeting at Kumasi. Yaa Asantewa, the Queen Mother of Ejisu, was at the meeting. The chiefs were discussing how they could make war on the white men and force them to bring back the Asantehene. Yaa Asantewa saw that some of the chiefs were afraid.

Then, suddenly, Yaa Asantewa got up and spoke: "...I have seen that some of you fear to go forward to fight for our King. If it were in the brave days of old... chiefs would not sit down to see their King taken away without firing a shot. No white man could have dared to speak to the chiefs of the Asante in the way the Governor spoke to you chiefs this morning. Is it true that the bravery of the Asante is no more? I cannot believe it... if you the men of Asante will not go forward, then we will. We the women will. I shall call upon my fellow women. We will fight the white men. We will fight till the last of us falls in the battlefields."

The war that follows bears her name—the Yaa Asantewa War. The final battle began on September 30, 1900 and ended in the bloody defeat and rout of the Asante. Yaa Asantewa was the last to be captured and subsequently exiled to the Seychelles, where she died around 1921.

With the end of these wars, the British gained control of the hinterland of Ghana.

THE DESTINY OF THE BLACK AFRIKAN WOMAN: IS THE DESTINY OF THE WORLD.


The only battle most Black Afrikan females today are in is, who can wear the best wig/weave. Who has the biggest breast. Who has the longest prettiest fake nails. Who can shake here booty bestand we know the rest. Who can throw her hair back like the European females do. Who can wear the shortest dress/skirt. In actuality, who can Prostitute all that is artificial the best.
