Opposition forces kill US Ambassador Chris Stevens, America In Libya’s No. 1

Maybe it could have happened to a more deserving operative, but that's splitting hairs. Obviously we can't call the late ambassador Chris Stevens the "mastermind" of the US covert destabilization of Libya. However, he was Our Man in Benghazi, essentially the NO. 1 in charge of the state-terrorist cell poised to exploit the rolling "Arab Spring" for the forces of capitalist neo-democracy, let's call it AMERICA IN LIBYA. Stevens organized and armed the US-sponsored rebels who exploited the pan-Arab protests to foment unrest, then civil war, then NATO intervention, against the West's nemesis Muammar Gaddafi. Remember how Gaddafi was unceremoniously deposed? Captured, tormented, then shot most likely by a CIA-contracted assassin? Where was the humanitarian outcry against that sanctioned barbarity?   How undignified of Westerners to decry the killing of Ambassador Stevens, legally, in the field of battle, by opposition fighters in Libya, on this rare occasion when they got their man. Actually four: the ambassador, a military attache, and two Americans whose identities the USG won't reveal, I'm thinking mercenaries. The USG is speculating that the rocket attack was planned, and by none other than al-Qaeda, because it's unlikely the Libyans who stormed the US consulate in Benghazi brought impromptu grenade

NATO is training the new police force in counter-revolutionary Libya

Turkey, a member of NATO, is now training the new police force in LIbya for the new counter revolutionary government the US and NATO have established there. 'A total of 817 Libyan police academy students arrived in Istanbul last week to train at the Adile Sadullah Mermerci Police Centre, where they will spend seven and a half months before returning to home to take up police duties.' Turkey Boosts Role in Libya by Training Police.

Libyan show elections held after Pentagon made regime change

"The United States is proud of the role that we played in supporting the Libyan revolution and protecting the Libyan people, and we look forward to working closely with the new Libya - including the elected congress and Libya's new leaders," Obama said (Saturday). What the role played by the US government in overthrowing Gaddafi was and the US role played in creating these show elections today was not mentioned in any detail.

A harsh war continues in Libya though Western humanitarian liberals and Lefties no longer seem to care now that Gaddafi was removed from power by the US government

Poor Libya. Just months ago it was the cause célèbre of US and other Western Lefty humanitarian imperialists who rushed to support the Pentagon's struggle against a dictator, Moammar Gadhafi, who was also a nationalist outside Washington D.C.'s direct control. How's that going for the Libyan people? Answer- The counter revolutionary gangs who Washington organized now battle among themselves, or more commonly, simply act like gangs do when fighting over turf. The war continues... Recent tribal clashes in western Libya left 105 people dead and some 500 injured, the government has said. ...though humanitarian imperialists no longer care. All is wonderful to them now that Gadhafi has been tortured to death. 34749

US-made counterrevolution in Libya leads to civil war in Mali and the establishment of a ‘Tuareg Homeland’

Oops! The law of unintended consequences in US foreign policy continues to have its effects on the world. Those politician fat cats in D.C. wanted Moammar Gadhafi out of power in Libya and got that after the brutal torture murder of that head of state, but did the Obama Administration calculate on the current events in Mali that followed? I rather doubt that they did. ...See Gaddafi's influence in Mali's coup and Mali's Tuareg separatist rebels have declared an end to military operations, a statement on their website says. These former fighters FOR Gadhafi now have power in the northern regions of Mali and have declared a 'Tuareg Homeland'. It is doubtful that the Europeans and the US are too delighted with this new nationalist movement though. The fighting is certain to continue and spread throughout the region yet more.

Divide & Conquer- the US strategy in Libya

Everywhere the US Empire goes, the Pentagon uses a colonial strategy to divide and conquer in order to better keep the US 1% dominant over the rest of the world. Here is the latest from Libya... Eastern Libya seeks semi- autonomy. Dividing and splitting up Libya is the same plan that the US Empire has used previously with Yugoslavia, Iraq and Sudan. Unity of population is well guarded for inside the US, while splitting up others is the Pentagon plan for the rest of the world population living outside US borders.

America’s counter revolution in Libya begins to turn sour

While the reign of Moammar Gadhafi and his family was not exactly paradise for many Libyans, the overthrow of his government ending in the US directed torture death of Gadhafi himself is not bringing anything good to Libya at all. And the Western imperialist counter revolution is now falling into total disrepute as Libyans begin to despair of their present and their futures. Benghazi, Libya was the center of the counter revolution that toppled Gadhafi. Here is today's news report from there Libyans storm transitional government headquarters

Colonel Gaddafi meets his killer-to-be. Would you have shaken that hand? I’m talking about Obama’s.

Can you match this for a haunting image? There's Colonel Gaddafi and President Obama, two years ago. I suppose the Tea Party would pretend they were pals. Why wouldn't they be, both are misunderstood weirdos, both were espoused rescuers of their respective peoples. Where similarities end, the rivalry is epic. One the protector of Africa and the unaligned world, the other its despoiler. One perhaps rendered timid with age, bombed into submission, his own daughter killed by an extrajudicial US assassination attempt, the other his future killer. I look at this image and reflect on the author of the Little Green Book, ideology for the Libyan renaissance, whose recent pitiless murder was videotaped and televised from all angles. Others might look more soberly at President Barack Obama, skilled comfort giver, who we've come to see shows no reticence for killing thousands sight unseen, but here he's looking his mark straight in the face. What's Obama saying with that handshake? I'm not sure Obama's eye contact is going to have the effect it used to.

War is over, so they say…

Said, in different words, that the illegal conquest Iraqi Oilfields and National Prison-camp Ghetto Rebuilding has been secured and that the Iraqi Puppet Army and Police are sufficiently trained in Western Style Police Brutality. What a victory for Righteousness and Decency! Strange that they never found all those WMDs, though, ain't it? Meanwhile neighboring Syria and Iran are targeted and Guess Which Really Stupid Lie They're Telling Us to justify that? Go on, guess... Ok I'll tell you. WMDs. Apparently a nation like the U.S. which employs torture and assassinations that have historically killed about twenty times as many non-combatants as they do "terrorists" and many of whose political leaders believe they should establish a fundamentalist religious dictatorship worldwide, is the only nation morally fit to have WMDs. Add in that the U.S., which has more of every class of weapon than the entire rest of the world combined, is also the only nation to have used all three classes of WMD, Biological, Nuclear and Chemical. And routinely uses gas and is experimenting with mass Pain weapons against "their own" citizens. Sort of a high-tech version of what they accuse Gadafi and Hussein of doing. And make no mistake, the American Cop or Soldier

Execution of anti-Western al-Gaddafi suggests he wasn’t strongman enough

I know very little about the dark side of Colonel Gaddafi. I've never seen him outside the filter of Western media. For all I know he emptied baby incubators, hid WMDs and ran rape camps. He wasn't responsible for Lockerbie, the CIA knows that much. The deposed leader's execution yesterday was nothing to celebrate. It was sad, brutal and shrouded in mystery. Hugo Chavez hailed Gaddafi as a fallen hero, and I've never had occasion to disagree with Chavez. Nor have I ever taken issue with George Galloway and he hated Gaddafi. Probably the aging revolutionary was both heroic and corrupt, eccentric and lunatic. Gaddafi was the most powerful protector of Africa, and the only leader to have apologized for Arab role in African slave trade. Naturally he had to be booted from the club. 28700

Obama sez: “The nation of Libya now belongs to OUR oil companies”

Actually he said "to the Libyan people". They're also saying not a single (American and therefore more important than any Libyans) life was lost. Yet another mass murder for profit. Meanwhile, Libya had been the main contributor of humanitarian aid to Africa whereas the AMERICAN "aid" has largely been in the form of weapons, killing, let them starve, take all their raw materials, and kill anybody who objects. The funding for the Libyan aid came from Libyan oil, nationalized and the REAL reason for the attacks on Libya over the past 4 decades. Can't have any nation own the resources of that nation, that would be socialism and capitalism can't survive unless they violently stomp out any other economic model. Capital is NOT a self sustaining system, it has to be subsidized, at public expense, with war and other forms of Murder. Capitalism takes more public money than socialism ever could and gives it to arrogant rich Socially Retarded Animated Sphincters like the Koch Brothers. Now that the oil is going to be given, more corporate welfare, to BP and Exxon and Shell, where is the aid money to Africa going to come from? Sure as Hell isn't going to be from the Oil Companies. They only

Angela Merkel il culone intrombabile

But Silvio Berlusconi might alternatively have used "strutto culo inchiavabile" to describe any other Euro usury kapo, like himself, or his mates Nicolas Sarkozy and David Cameron who paid a surprise visit to Tripoli yesterday to herald the victory of Neoliberal World Bank "Democracy" over Libyan sovereignty --or was it to say thanks in advance for the oil? News of Berlusconi's wiretapped indiscretion via Twitter offered what online translators would not reveal, how to say "unf*ckable" in the languages of your upstream: infollable, onneukbare... his choice of words remain as yet censored in the German press. Wouldn't it be curious to learn which cultures have no word for the concept? I'd have thought that would be American.

They hanged Pinocchio and let Gepetto walk… 12/30/2006

As is so often true in death penalty cases. From 1979 til 1991 he was propped up by mostly the Reagan Regime as a counter to the Iranian revolution. Who are also the chief "witnesses" against him in the matter of killing a few thousand Iraqi citizens. With their active involvement. Their active PAID involvement, because they a) don't work cheap and b) don't actually work. "They" being a cast of villains like Reagan, Bush the Elder, Ollie North, the Miami Cuban Cartel, Richard Secord, Donald Rumsfeld, Admiral Poindexter, traitors and murderers all. Selling stolen arms for stolen money and getting Americans killed in the process, like the Marines in Beirut. (Lt Col North, three words, Ollie... Semper... Fi... Bitch) They got several times as many people killed by their Other Puppets, like the Salvadoran death squads, the Contras, the Medellin Cartel, to bring more people into Capitalist Slavery in the name of "Freedom". And they're still sending their brainless minions to kill for their own profit. Any of y'all soldiers assigned to read our blog, dudes, get smart and desert. Split, boogie, depart, sortez... Get Out Of The Slaughter Machine. Your Military is owned by the same Rich Bitches who owned Saddam's

Another military victory where the Poor “socialized” their blood for Capitalism

Tripoli, the site of the FIRST U.S. Military engagement to prop up capitalism, is apparently fallen, not to economic "free" market forces, but to the Armed Forces. In a book titled "Liberty Reclaimed", often described as the libertarian bible, the statement is made and reiterated "the only substantial difference between the Soviet Union and the United States isn't one of raw political power or the freedom of the subjects but one of economic policy."   So, when the Military claimed and still claim that they were and are fighting for freedom, they're lying. Just as the Pentagon and their contractors lie about Agent Orange, which killed Miss Johnnie's husband and a countless number of others. Countless because the Pentagon, bowing to their Corporate Masters, denied for more than a decade that Agent Orange actually causes human death. They also have recently claimed in a lawsuit that locks out the people of VietNam from any lawsuits that the people of the Republic of VietNam (Saigon government) sprayed with A.O. (and lots of other Military hardware sold at massive profits by the Corporations who now claim a moral exemption to taxation) were enemy combatants thus not eligible for compensation for their kids being killed.

Operation Iraqi Freedom To Say And Do Exactly What They’re Told

Apparently the Imperialists weren't lying when they said they were bringing American-style "freedoms" In Bahrain and in Iraq... where the Iraqi Puppet Government PIGS have used American style Police Tactics to break up demonstrations, including, with the United States "Freedom" Army standing ready to back them up if the Peasants took the upper hand, simply slaughtering protestors. Something the Colorado Springs Gestapo knows full well, beating and arresting peaceful marchers (mostly elderly and disabled) in the St Patricks Day Parade 2007 "Protesters took to the streets of Iraq again today, demanding the same reforms that have become common cause across the Arab world. But while most nations have chosen violence or empty promises (both of which the Maliki government has dabbled in) to answer these demands, Iraq is also taking a very American idea. On Wednesday the government announced a ban on protests in the capital city of Baghdad, saying that street vendors had complained it was hurting business. The answer was to sequester protesters into specially designated free speech zones. The US began using “free speech areas” to move political dissent away from public view, nominally for security reasons, and became extremely common starting in 2004, when both major party conventions herded protesters

The US-UN no-fly no-flee free-fire zone

Forbidding flight is not a pun, but a cruel misnomer --a war crime too by the way-- international law forbids shooting a fleeing adversary. Or does aerial flight apply to ground forces and naval vessels? So far enforcement of the Libyan No-Fly Zone extends to flight by tanks, ships, and Command & Control Centers, which may yet be taken to include the C&CC lobes of a dictatorial brain resisting regime change, even if that's not the UN objective. The first night air-strike on Col. Al-Qaddafi's home reminded me more of the opening act of Schock N' Awe Baghdad, than what most expect of a UN peacekeepers' NFZ. Iraq post Kuwait 1991? Bosnia less Herzegovina 1995? Please! New War Czar Obama trumpeted this declaration of a bombing war on Libya with the same speech Bush used to announce the 2003 Christian Jihad against Saddam Hussein (ongoing). The upside of getting to see a No-Fly Zone for what it is, a military bombing spree in the guise of a UN mission, is for all those humanitarian intervention "activists" who cried for a NFZ in Sudan and Somalia. But those assholes knew what it was obviously because they still never call for one

Yahoo empire blinks on Libya!

Saddling up, out of the shadows of covert participation in the Libyan rebellion against bogeyman Gaddafi might be the US misstep which the Arab movement has been looking for. It's not enough that Barack Obama's active suppression of public uprisings in Bahrain and Yemen unmasked his administration as anti-Democratic, now he's deploying the brute force already visited on Iraq. Bombs against Gaddafi will soon enough yield innocent civilian deaths and America's War on Islam not only expands in North Africa, it pits itself against the entire pan-Arab revolution. The Qatar-based Al Jazeera Network may have its own motives for beating the drums of war against the loose cannon madman Gaddafi, while sparing the House of Saud similar vilification, but AJ has succeeded in goading the Western powers to put their weapons where their oil is, effectively throwing fuel on a fire that was stalling against the firewall of the dictator's repressive might. Forget Ben Ali, Mubarak and Gaddafi, the adversary to unite Arabia will be the USA. And while conventional wisdom for Western governance is to announce unpopular policy during the black hole Friday news cycle, our arrogance shows itself tone-deaf to Islam. We might have figured it out

The spreading wave of Democracy… threatens Oil Companies.

To the point that Oil Corporation workers in Bahrain and throughout the Persian Gulf, North Africa and the Indian Ocean are on high alert. The people there know which side of their toast is buttered and they're plenty swoll about being ripped off, enslaved, targeted by Oil Company hired goons like the Blackwater Thug assassins, Drone Operators bombing them from secret rooms halfway around the world: Video Gamers who were recruited from living in their moms' basement with the promise that they can Kill Humans for real and not face any consequences or put their own cowardly lives in danger. Now the oilfields, refineries and shipyards of the world are under security lockdown. The ever-nearby British-American military bases also in danger. The tactics-- IEDs, car bombs, hijacked airplanes? nope. People. There have been reports throughout the long long long Imperial Wars of the Imperial Stormtroopers being fired on by the Imperial-armed Slave Soldiers of the local provinces. BP and the old Standard Oil allegedly broken up, Exxon-Mobil, Chevron, Texaco, Gulf.. getting back together again just in time... They've spent trillions of other people's dollars (guilders, francs, marks and pounds too) and hundreds of millions of other peoples' lives and more than a

Tripoli and the Original Intent of the Founding Great White Fathers.

You know the first line of the Marine Corps Hymn, ends with "to the shores of Tripoli" So, why, exactly, was Tripoli so important? Well, since American Capitalism was and still is heavily dependent on goods and services produced by Slavery, an important slave-shipping region like the Barbary Coast (North Africa from western Egypt to the Gibraltar Straits) was the "Raw Material" source for American, British and French Capitalism. Slaves. Human cargo. The Bush family and the Harvard trust and the Yale trust got simultaneously Fantastically Wealthy through the 'necessary evil'.   Capital can only work if the Richest make other HUMAN BEINGS poorer. The "rising tide lifts all boats" bullshit is simply that. In a system of finite resources, and there is no resource which isn't... the Rich can only gain and maintain their wealth at the expense of everybody else. 22091

Americans want clemency only for their own

How gracious of us! The US is beneficiary of a succession of clemencies shown to American citizens. Iran releases an American propagandist, North Korea forgives two more, Myanmar allows us to extricate a oddly errant citizen. All of them Americans, for which we are thankful, but still indignant and unrepentant. When Scotland elects to release a Libyan prisoner on compassionate grounds, the US president cannot object enough. 8473

Lockerbie bomber(s) get away for good

Libyan Abdel Basset al-Megrahi has been imprisoned in the UK since 2000, for the 1988 bombing of PanAm Flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland. Libya paid restitution for the act, but maintain their --and al-Megrahi's-- innocence. It was announced yesterday that Al-Megrahi is being freed on humanitarian grounds, because he's been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and not in exchange for his dropping the appeal of his conviction. Thus ends further inquiry into who else was suspected of responsibility for the suitcase bomb. 8435

US gov finally murders ‘ghost detainee’ (POW) tortured by CIA for 7 1/2 years

Libya reports prison suicide of top Qaeda man this week. Translated form CIA Arabic speak, that means he was murdered. Sure... so much has changed with Obama in office! I'm being facetious here. This man was murdered simply because he knew too much about how the Bush Administration tortured POWs in order to try to get them to fabricate 'evidence' about a Saddam Hussein-al Qaeda connection to justify their illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq. 7742
