In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

Cameron the chancer

You probably didn’t know that David Cameron was a gambling man. What, you ask; has he been buying up credit default swaps on a Greek default? Has he placed his bets on the Euro being as worthless as the doomed dollar/pound tandem? That would be reckless even with City hedge funds, the rating agencies and the world’s media on your side. No, he has recklessly put his money on pulling off a return to 19th century imperialism in a new dash for Africa. He has decided to spice up the tired and all to predictable transatlantic relationship with a menage-a-trois, a fling with the flashy, French fantasist, Sarkozy.

For the senile colonial powers, after the travail of Iraq and Afghanistan, easy and rich pickings in Africa were an irresistible lure and the gateway for Africom to the African continent was through knocking out the pan-African champion and friend of Mandela, Gaddafi and his Gold Dinar, another threat to the dollar, the god almighty of Western civilization. Anyway Gaddafi’s persistence in his pan-African schemes despite his deal with Blair, meant he was two-timing the City ofLondon/Wall Street mob, Cameron’s paymasters, and had to be made an example of.

Hopes were high that Gaddafi could be dispatched quickly using an update of the Kosovo formula: gangsters on the ground  backed by special forces and NATO’s awesome array of destructive devices. In passing, the bothersome strictures of international law could be trashed for ever with the active collaboration of none other than the UN Secretary General. The media could complete its transformation into a key component of covert operations and the West’s brand new touchy-feely liberal leftists, not to mention more than a smattering of old trots, could provide the necessary mood music about all-conquering Western democracies on the march.

But the Libyan people weren’t lulled and rallied round Gaddafi in massive demonstrations throughout Libya in response to the NATO onslaught. They remembered Serbia. So it wasn’t to be the quick victory that Sarkozy had been promised by his intelligence services. Now the whole infrastructure of the Libyan state was to destroyed from the air and, failing that, the Libyan people were to be punished, denied food, electricity, water, the sources of which were all bombed. Then using Qatari ground troops as cannon fodder to force Gaddafi’s forces into the open  they were able to enter Tripoli with special forces on the ground guiding in helicopter gunships to machine gun the armed people on the streets. They took Tripoli by destroying it. As with Saddam in Iraq, Gaddafi withdrew to commence a new phase of asymmetric warfare.

But Cameron’s gamble still hadn’t payed off: had it done he would have been in Tripoli doing a photo shot, Blair-style, amongst the adoring salafists of Belhaj’s Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, an Al Qaeda affiliate whose entry NATO had facilitated. But Belhaj wouldn’t want Cameron there. Nor does he want the TNC, the official government of Libya according to Cameron. There’s gratitude for you! Looks like Belhaj could do with another MI6 torture session! More likely we’ll just have to take him out. Surely our SAS boys can do something?- they can’t all be held capture in Bani Walid after rashly going in as an advance guard of a “rebel” attack which never materialised.

And so we come to the final phase of the campaign, NATO’s last card: the complete destruction of Libya using all known methods of skulduggery, terrorism and deception. The full program: but will it work? We’re off to a good start in Tawerga, completely destroying the town and cleansing all its inhabitants who happen to be mainly black skinned and are therefore suspected of being African. Isn’t Libya an African country? Gaddafi certainly sought define it as such but NATO wants to make sure it isn’t. Rewriting history by pretending that the 21st century is the 19th now gives way to rewriting geography.

Cameron’s gamble now hangs by a thread. Betrayed by al Qaeda he stands face to face with a Libyan people who have now become a problem since they didn’t play the role assigned to them by the West’s hubristic fantasists. But to paraphrase Stalin; no people, no problem.

For the Wests’ corrupt leadership it’s genocide or the abyss. Let’s stand against them in solidarity with the Libyan people and make sure it’s the latter.

    I don’t agree with your analysis but you have a opinion and want to express it. Maybe you should form a political party and test whether your opinion will gell with the public. Just a thought.

    Need to question some of your claims.
    ‘Now the whole infrastructure of the Libyan state was to destroyed from the air and, failing that, the Libyan people were to be punished, denied food, electricity, water, the sources of which were all bombed.’
    WRONG! The most destruction was caused by gaddaffi forces
    ‘Then using Qatari ground troops as cannon fodder to force Gaddafi’s forces into the open they were able to enter Tripoli with special forces on the ground guiding in helicopter gunships to machine gun the armed people on the streets. ‘
    WRONG!! Qatari special forces themself went in and done a deed. And what if they did?
    ‘They took Tripoli by destroying it. As with Saddam in Iraq, Gaddafi withdrew to commence a new phase of asymmetric warfare.’
    WRONG!!! Gaddafi ran away because he had no popular support.
    ‘The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, an Al Qaeda affiliate whose entry NATO had facilitated.’
    Wrong!!!! They are not a al-Quada affiliate. And I though you guys didn’t believe in al-Quada?
    ‘There’s gratitude for you! Looks like Belhaj could do with another MI6 torture session!’
    ARE YOU ADVOCATING THE USE OF TORTURE AGAINST BELHAJ> IF ITS@ A JOKE THEN IT IS IN VERY BAD TASTE!!!!

    I don’t agree with u I think Cameron is a heroic figure who did much to change the geopolitical map in favour of peace and humanity. Here is the evidence.

    Well, /I don’t think I’ll bother with the Sky clip, thanks all the same. So now we have the pitiful scenario of the left- liberal imperialists bowing down before David Cameron, the reincarnation of the19th century British imperialism, the new Palmerston.

    You really are losing it Jon. Those responsible for the torture of Belhaj are the people who tortured him- in his view British personnel. My reference to this crime exposes the duplicity, the utterly surreal nature of what is happening. After ten years of war under the pretext of fighting Al Qaeda, your hero, Cameron, is backing Al Qaeda forces in order to advance an imperialist agenda. This has happened before in Bosnia and Kosovo, but never in such a brazen fashion. The British people need to know about this.
