Libya: Scratching beneath the surface...
24.02.2011

One week after the Day of Rage, and scratching beneath the surface of the myriad of events coming out of Libya, one week after we asked in this column Who or What is behind the "uprising" against Colonel Muammar Gathafi, the first answers begin to appear...and interesting ones they are.
The Libyan "uprising" appeared a little strange from the beginning, due to the fact that it was presented as another wave of Middle East protest against corrupt regimes which held the people down, siphoned off the resources and put nothing back in return. While that was true in Tunisia and Egypt, where the "Revolutions" were concentrated in the capital cities, Libya's centre of unrest was way out East in the tribal lands of Cyrenaica. Odd...

Cyrenaica is home to an extremely complex grouping of peoples and tribes, an ethnic reality so easily and quickly exploited in so many other areas of the Arab-speaking world. Around the second largest city in Libya, and capital of Cyrenaica, Benghazi, reside the Arafah, the Darsa, Abaydat, Barasa, Abiid, Awaqir, Fawakhir, Zuwayah, Mugharbah, Majabrah, Awajilah and Minifah.

So question one is: Why didn't the Libyan "uprising" start in the capital city, Tripoli, and why didn't the "mainstream (bought) media" report the fact that this is not the first or second or third time that Benghazi has been the epicentre of ethnic tensions and separatism?

Question two is why has there been an absence of reporting on colonel Gadhafi's social welfare schemes, which if anything have made Libyans lazy and not destitute?

SharePrint version Font Size Send to friendColonel Muammar Gathafi's social and welfare programmes in Libya are far greater than those implemented in neighbouring countries. Modern infrastructures have sprung up in recent years which aim to attract investment and bring added wealth and sustainable development to the citizens of Libya; Gathafi's literacy programme has seen universal education become reality and since he took power in 1969, the life expectancy of Libyan citizens has risen by twenty years while infant mortality has decreased sharply.

Gathafi represents the control of Libya's resources by Libyans and for Libyans; literacy reached ten per cent of the population when he came to power. Today it is around 90 per cent. Women, today, have rights and can go to school and get a job. The standard of living is around 100 times greater than it was under the rule of King Idris I. The conclusion, therefore, is that Gathafi's Libya is a different ball game from Tunisia and Egypt.

Question three is where the EnoughGaddafi.com posters and signs are coming from and why the webmaster from this "organization" is listed on Movements.org as the "Twitter" to be followed and question four is what the role of the US State Department is behind Movements.org. The answer to this question is that it helped launch the movement in 2008.

Question five is what have the National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL) and the National Conference for the Libyan Opposition (NCLO) been doing behind and scenes. The answer is a great deal and question six is where they are based. The answer is, respectively, in Washington and London. These organizations are coordinating teams of "information providers" operating deep within Libya. At another time, they would have been called saboteurs, terrorists and agents provocateurs.

Question seven is what is NATO doing concentrated off the Libyan coast and is there any veracity in the allegations that this organization is illegally enforcing no-fly zones? If yes, this is an act of terrorism. And connected to this, do NATO personnel have any hand in the acts of sabotage and terrorism taking place within the country? Are the "mercenaries" all brought in by the Gathafi government or are they brought in from outside by elements wishing to destabilise Libya and to seize its oil? Are they perpetrating acts of sabotage and murder, just to blame events on the Gathafi administration? Are some of them special forces sent by the backers of NFSL and NCLO member groups?

Question eight is why the Libyan Government news agency site, JANA, has been offline for three days: http://www.jananews.ly and who or what is behind this apparent act of cyber terrorism. This is a deliberate attempt to manipulate the news by those who attempt to try mass information and shape public opinion. Those who try to forge an independent path, like Al Jazeera, are soon assimilated as it is clear to see.

Question nine is why the mainstream media announced loud and clear that Colonel Gathafi had fled the country, while he was all the time in Tripoli, and a lot of it in the streets among crowds of cheering supporters.

Question ten is why the same media did not report on Gathafi's direct appeal to the parents and elders to make sure their children were not caught up in a wave of vandalism, taking them off the streets and warning that the country has a penal code which includes the death penalty for acts of treason and terrorism against the State.

Question eleven is what happened to the Libyan Ambassador in Washington, apparently blocked from attending the UN building while a carefully prepared aide took his place and gave a version of events which the Ambassador later denied.

These questions and their answers do not provide an insight into Libya's future because the fight at the moment is a pendulum which can swing either way. Reports in the mass media are of Colonel Gathafi losing more and more territory, while reports from inside Libya point towards the lines being clearly drawn and only some areas being temporarily held by rebels. In the absence of clear information, who knows where the truth lies?Time will tell, but these questions may help to document the events of the past week, giving an insight into the dark forces involved. For sure, they are not only from inside Libya.

Terrorists trying to destroy Libya

24.02.2011

The wave of intrigue is spreading across the Arab world. It is hard to predict what direction events will turn finally.
Cairo's Tahrir Square is now portrayed as a symbol of victory. However, in the case of Libya, the stage is now totally media and internet created with sensationalism spawned by weapons of mass deception, trying to impose from without a solution agreeable to the imperialists.

Their overt efforts started with rumours of Khaddafi fleeing to Venezuela, which were shown for the nonsense they are when Khaddafi showed up in public in Tripoli, having hoped to join with the people on the street...but it was raining, so he just made a short speech of reassurance under an umbrella.

It was also rumoured that pilots had defected with their Mirage jets, having refused orders to bomb their own people. However, those jet pictures were identified by Russian military as Russian made, not containing any bombs, but only extra fuel for a long distance run. I suppose the pilots were to drop rolls of toilet paper on the people in the streets on their way to Washington.

Fact of the matter is the western corporate media has also been caught numerous times passing off film footage and pictures from Bahrain and Yemen, claiming they came from Libya. It is wise not to trust any western media outlet and let things play out as they were meant to.

Already, many of the Libyan demonstrations were shown to be in support of the Libyan government. And why not? Libya's statistics say much.

SharePrint version Font Size Send to friendToday, oil revenues and a small population give Libya one of the highest GDPs per capita in Africa and have allowed the Libyan state to provide an extensive level of social programmes, particularly in the fields of housing and education. Health and education are things that Libyans can take for granted. The standard of living in Libya is higher than that of all the neighbouring countries.

Women have rights, illiteracy has greatly decreased under the leadership of Khadaffi. Humanitarian work and unity efforts for the African peoples have come from the leadership of Libya. A great project is underway for irrigation of desert land.

Compared to neighbouring countries, Libyans enjoy a low level of poverty. Economic reforms have been carried out in the last few years to integrate the country into the global economy.

These rioters / terrorists are now reportedly attempting to take control of Libyan oil fields. Does that sound like something that would benefit the people of Libya or benefit Washington DC?

They have been attempting to take control of military facilities, heavily armed.

It is best to resist the temptation of some who would put words in the mouths of the Libyan people. You have to ask yourself: Is there any organized opposition that hasn't been infiltrated or directed from outside?

It is more than obvious that the Libyan opposition has been organized by Washington DC, as reported previously in this space. One has to wonder when Libya's outlet to the world has been deliberately cut off (server is too busy), why aren't thinking people asking questions instead of mindlessly accepting what is passing for "reporting" on events in Libya.

We have certainly already caught them in lies, in a court of law that would disqualify someone's entire testimony. See the photograph being passed off as legitimate protesters when it is obvious they are in support of their leader.

Now the Egyptian events take on new meaning. The groundwork was being laid for the planned assault on Libya. They are invading Libya from Egypt. Bought and paid for mercenaries from God knows where posing as "Libyan protesters" with posters "made in the USA" and weapons "made in the USA." They have crossed the border between Egypt and Libya in a covert act of war to cry murder, dictator and whatever else about "crimes" being committed.

However, how is one to handle an invader? Has something changed we don't know about in international law?

I am reminded now of Yugoslavia. What you have is an anti-terrorist operation being fought by the government of Libya and its people. A country is trying to defend itself, its territorial integrity and sovereignty. And the west doing all in its power to counter it and destroy it.

It is a socialist state that is under attack because it will not totally and completely surrender its resources to the resource gluttons of the west.

They are so blatantly obvious about their activities now, not even trying to hide it. A news program showed plotters and terrorists planning riots in Libya from locations not inside the country using a dating site and code words. And the sheeple think nothing of it.

What is this that the international community is willing tolerate and cooperate with? Open terrorism sponsored by those who claim to be fighting terrorism, nothing less! No matter what one thinks about Khaddafi, this is morally wrong and against international law.

The United States of America has subverted countless governments, most democratically elected, put in place dictators and mass murderers, drug and people traffickers and sought to assassinate opponents. International community, are you going to stand for this? That the perpetrators of war, murder, state terrorism and most of all lies and slander are accusing someone of crimes they are guilty of?
