NATO: what are we going to do?

Posted by seumasach on October 6, 2011

Poor NATO are in an awful mess and we probably don’t know the half of it. To bomb or not to bomb- that is the dilemma, but they are damned both ways. A military problem requires a military solution: the “pacification”of Libya requires massive armed force on the ground a possibility which certainly is not being openly considered and is politically and financially risky in the extreme if not simply impossible. The truth is that the new formula of terrorists and mercenaries on the ground backed by massive air power has not worked: the legitimate government of Libya, it’s armed forces and the armed people, to say nothing of the volunteers from throughout North Africa and the Arab world are resisting effectively and are gaining ground. It is politically, morally and financially very difficult to continue bombing of this intensity indefinitely. What can NATO do without being exposed before the whole world, along with their massive  entourage of apologists, as the liars, warmongers and war criminals they  really are? Oh dear! Oh dear! Oh dear!
NATO divided on end to Libya air war

Reporting from Brussels and Beirut—

Members of the NATOmilitary alliance parted company Wednesday over how quickly to halt the six-month bombing campaign in Libya, and the dangers of doing so if fighters loyal to Moammar Kadafi, the country’s deposed strongman, are still engaged in armed resistance.

Libya storm on Sirte failed, TNC in desperate chaos

5th October, 2011

 

NATO and TNC Mercenaries initiated the yet heaviest assault on the strategically and economically important city of Sirte, advancing into the suburbs of the city. After heavy fighting the attack was grinded to a halt this morning. Though heavy fighting continued in other cities the fronts were relatively calm, which indicates that the TNC is running low on reserves. Is the all out assault a desperate attempt to register one victory before the NATO Meeting in two days, Intelligence close to the TNC reports that the Transitional National Counsel is in utter chaos. This morning at a press conference, Abdelhakim Belhadj “pleaded” to the population in Tripoli to help establish “stability, law and order” and give back their arms to the Tripoli Military Counsel.

NATO prepare for “victory”

Posted by seumasach on October 4, 2011

I was right then a couple of weeks ago to predict the NATO “victory” in Libya but failed to predict the “death” of Gaddafi. That distinction falls to Allain Jules.

It is difficult to see what outcome awaits us in the Libyan situation. NATO have dug themselves into a very deep hole but so far managed to conceal that fact from almost everyone. Yet the truth will out we are told. Not if NATO have anything to do with it! Their virtual victory in this war is guaranteed but winning the peace in which a resurgent Libyan people under the leadership of Muammar Gaddafi retake control of their own country will be another matter. If only they had been able to eliminate Gaddafi then perhaps any outcome could be presented as a “democratic” revolution facilitated by themselves but all the indications are that the Guide is safe and sound, at home amongst his own people and that seems unlikely to change.

Libyan conflict lurches out of NATO control

What do you get when a British public schoolboy with a proven record of a seriously flawed judgement as regards choosing his advisers and choosing his policy gets embroiled in conflict in a tribal society utterly beyond his comprehension? You get David Cameron’s 2 billion-pound nightmare.

Allain Jules, Defeat for NATO or not? Exile for the renegades?

2nd October, 2011

Translated by Cailean Bochanan

Now that the Franco-Libanese Zied Takieddine is getting upset  and hitting out wildly before his appearance before Judge Renaud Van Ruymbeke, he says that the Elysee have abandoned him and that his Libyan trips were official not officious. Worse, he claims to have been sent by the terrible two, Nicolas Sarkozy and Claude Gueant, on behalf of the French state. Does this explain everything? Failure to sell Rafales? Now, Total paid for this mission. All that for the death of 70,000 Libyans, including 2,300 renegades, killed for nothing. The truth about this war risks then  revealing the dark motivation and misjudgement of Nicolas Sarkozy in this aggression against Libya and, in particular, against Gaddafi.

Libya heavy fighting and half-hearted calls for diplomacy.

Posted by seumasach on September 28, 2011

 

Last weeks strategic and tactical adaptations of the Libyan Armed Forces as well as increased national and international support for the fight to liberate Libya has forces NATO and TNC forces into the defense on the ground. NATO´s absolute dominance over Libyan Air Space has lost it´s strategic advantages. NATO´s reply; increased terror bombing of civilians. Are the feeble whispers about a diplomatic solution true, and if so, who and what is hiding behind them.

nsnbc is receiving reports of heavy fighting throughout Libya. The strategic and tactical changes have rendered the mighty NATO Air-Power impotent. Is the logic behind the increased terror bombing of civilian targets a sign of sheer frustration, cynical and calculated massacres to bomb Libya´s population into submission, or is it both.

Libye – Le retour pétaradant de Kadhafi / Gaddafi is back !

27th September, 2011

Please use google-translate

Nous pouvons, sans le moindre risque, d’ores et déjà vous annoncer que les jours de l’OTAN/CNT déchanteront d’ici la semaine prochaine et que le vrai leader de la Jamahiriya arabe libyenne et socialiste sera de retour. Et fortement. Tremblez bande de tueurs d’enfants ! Ah, au lieu de mettre sur pied un vrai gouvernement, l’illégitime CNT s’est engagé dans une partie de poker menteur insipide où, il a simplement donné des postes ministériels par ville. Une sorte de planification hypocrite alors que le « rebelle » choisi de Brega ou de Misrata ne représente que lui-même et non la population de sa zone tribale ou de sa région. Ce Gouvernement fantoche est donc refusé par les chefs de tribus, sans que les médias « meanstream » n’en parlent. Mais, il y a pire.

Intelligence outfit: Foreign special forces behind Tripoli showdown

Posted by seumasach on August 24, 2011

Steve Watson
23rd August, 2011
Reports including the Guardian’s “SAS troopers help co-ordinate rebel attacks in Libya” and the UK’s Mirror’s “Britain’s Secret War in Libya: British Special Forces uncovered on the ground,” confirm the entire report below. NATO troops are indeed on the ground and fighting in Tripoli and across Libya leading efforts to topple Qaddafi’s government.

Additionally, rebel leaders from Benghazi are rushing to Tripoli to claim the capital amid fierce street fighting while NATO, the Council on Foreign Relations, and other globalist outlets openly talk about an inevitable NATO occupation force that has been pieced together and prepared since the beginning of NATO operations earlier this year. This latest assault on Tripoli was never meant to fully take the capital, but merely prepare the rhetorical landscape for increasing the number of NATO “boots on the ground” until full occupation is incrementally achieved and circumvent the constraints placed on NATO via their own contrived UNSC r.1973.

….
British, French, Jordanian, Qatari military crack forces are behind compound siege
Rebels

An intelligence-gathering outlet that has proven accurate in the past has reported today that far from being merely a rebel uprising, the showdown in Tripoli over the last 48 hours is being “spearheaded” by British, French, Jordanian and Qatari Special Operations forces.

Israeli open source intelligence gathering outfit DEBKAfile reports:

“This is the first time Western and Arab ground troops have fought on the same battlefield in any of the Arab revolts of the last nine months and the first time Arab soldiers have taken part in a NATO operation.”

As we reported yesterday, the operation, nicknamed “Mermaid Dawn”, is being directed by US and NATO forces. The rebels have received training and arms from special forces and are being directed by Western intelligence operatives on the ground in Libya.

NATO is now planning a “humanitarian” occupation of Libya with thousands of British and American soldiers, risking the possibility that troops could be sent into yet another quagmire to rival Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Debkafile report continues:

“Our military sources report that the British have deployed SAS commandoes and France, 2REP (Groupe des commando parachutiste), which is similar to the US Navy DELTA unit, as well as DINOP commandos. Fighting too are Jordan’s Royal Special Forces, specialists in urban combat and capturing fortified installations like the Qaddafi compound in Tripoli, and the Qatari Special Forces, which were transferred from Benghazi where they guarded rebel Transitional National Council leaders.”

The report also states that the rebel fighters being directed by these special forces groups are very uncoordinated small groups of tribal fighters.

“NATO is trying to import better-trained fighters by sea from Benghazi and Misrata.” the report states. This information dovetails with intelligence revealed by journalist Webster Tarpley on yesterday’s nationally syndicated Alex Jones show.

DEBKAfile notes that its military sources say many key facilities within Gaddafi’s compound, which is now under seige, are located underground.

The “chambers are interconnected by a network of corridors, some broad enough to accommodate tanks. The network branches out to the sea and locations outside Tripoli.” the report states. Indeed, it is believed that Gadaffi 12th Tank Division is stationed in these vast tunnels.

This indicates that the “victory” scenes playing out across the media at time of writing with rebels clambering over statues within the grounds are somewhat premature.

DEBKAfile’s previous analysis has proven to be on the money. Indeed, back in July the website received intelligence indicating that should Gadaffi continue to resist an agreement to step down before the UN mandated September 2nd deadline, then NATO was prepared to instigate a crushing military blow in which the United States had also agreed to take part.

Libya: Prostitution of Western journalism

Posted by seumasach on August 24, 2011

Pravda

24th August, 2011

The last two days have once again proved the obvious fact that there are no independent media and that Western news agencies, newspapers and magazines work out a political order. The lion’s share of newspapers, magazines and news agencies reported the unprecedented success of the insurgents and predicted the imminent fall of Tripoli.
