26th September, 2011

Al-Jazeera – the Qatari news channel that in the space of 15 years established itself in the Arab world as an innovative news outlet – suddenly embarked in a vast intoxication campaign to overthrow the regimes of Libya and Syria through any means. As demonstrated by Thierry Meyssan, this was not a conjunctural shift but one that was planned long in advance by individuals who shrewdly concealed their personal interests to the public. Revelations follow …

Libya: Cameron’s 2-billion-pound nightmare

26th September, 2011

What do you get when a wannabe imperialist invents a war to get out of trouble at home, straying into deep waters that he neither controls nor understands, getting embroiled in an internecine tribal conflict that spins out of control? The answer to this question is the place where the UK’s David Cameron finds himself now: a 2-bn. pound nightmare.

Witch hunts in “free” Libya

While NATO’s mandate enjoins it to protect civilians, the Alliance allows the forces of the Libyan National Transition Council to continue their abuses. After hunting down black Africans, the summary executions now extend to members of the Qadhadhfa tribe, that of the fallen Leader. Hundreds of thousands of African workers have already fled the country to escape death; the time has now come for certain Libyans to take the road to exile if they want to survive

Nazi Rasmussen: resistance is futile

Posted by seumasach on September 8, 2011

“Gaddafi and the remains of his machine must realise that there is nothing to be gained from more fighting.”

In other words “all resistance will be crushed”. What do we learn from this “bravado” from Nazi Rasmussen. Firstly, there is still resistance and NATO plan to continue there illegal and bloody activities in Libya. So all the claims of the pundits, the obligatory “Gaddafi is finished’ stuff is so much nonsense. As Libyan traitor Mahmoud Jibril put it “The battle of liberation is not finished.”. This is cheeky but true in a sense complete opposed to that which Jibril is trying to give. Far from being futile resistance is both necessary and possible. Necessary, because NATO have put power into hands of criminal gangs who have shown themselves only capable of killing. Who would surrender to them if there was any other option? Possible, because these same groups are incapable of uniting and governing Libya and their rule can only destroy Libya, NATO’s preferred outcome: therefore the overwhelming majority of Libyans have a strong motive to resist. Even the removal 0f Gaddafi from the scene cannot change this logic. Militarily the TNC is completely dependent on NATO and even then can only expect to control limited areas of the country. NATO will be obliged to escalate because Libya is too big to bomb every square inch and they will need more boots on the ground. Soon we will see NATO bogged down in another hopeless and criminal little war. As the Western economies implode the time will come soon enough when the people in West realize that this madness has to be stopped and the wars brought to an end.

How Al Qaeda men came to power in Libya

Thierry Meyssan

Voltairenet

7th September, 2011

Voltaire Network has received letters from many readers enquiring about Al-Qaeda in Libya. To respond to them, Thierry Meyssan has assembled the main data available on the issue. The facts confirm his analysis, defended since the events of September 11, that Al Qaeda is a hotbed of mercenaries used by the United States to fight in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Kosovo, Iraq, and now Libya, Syria and Yemen.

Witnessing the Transition to Fear in Tripoli

Lizzie Phelan

Axis of Logic

3rd September, 2011

Axis of Logic Editor’s Comment: Lizzie Phelan is one of the few independent journalists who weathered the storm of the US/NATO bombing of Tripoli and their mercenaries’ invasion of the city. She was reporting from inside the Rixos Hotel and then moved nearby to the Hotel Corinthia, still amidst raging gun battles between government forces and the NATO mercenaries. She escaped Libya in a fishing boat which took her and others to Malta earlier this week. Today, she gives her first report since leaving Libya. We are indebted to Lizzie and other independent journalists whose work removed the mask of the corporate media and their paymasters. We look forward to more of her reports based on the months that she covered the war from inside Libya. – Les Blough, Editor

Seven points on the war against Libya

Posted by seumasach on September 4, 2011

I want to quote Immanuel Kant. In the paper of 1798 (The conflict of the faculties), he writes: “What is an absolute monarch? It is that one when he is in command says: “war must be” and in effect, the war follows. Arguing in this way, Kant took aim in particular at the England of his time, without allowing himself to be deceived by the “liberals” of that country. It’s a lesson to treasure: the “absolute monarchs” of our time, the tyrants and planetary dictators of our time sit in Washington, Brussels and in major Western capitals.

By now even the blind may be able to see and understand what is happening in Libya:

1. It is a war promoted and waged by NATO. This truth ends up filtering out of the same bodies of bourgeois “information.” In La Stampa on August 25, Lucia Annunziata wrote: it is a totally “external war” that is to say made by NATO forces,” and the “Western system, which promoted the war against Gaddafi.” A cartoon from the International Herald Tribune of August 24 shows us “rebels” who rejoice, but from the comfort of riding a plane that has been stamped wirh NATO insignia.
