LIBYA: HUMANITARIAN AID THROUGH THE BARREL OF A GUN

By Nile Bowie

We live in diverging realties of parallel sequences unfolding. As I write this we enter the fifth month of conflict in Libya, a conflict that the International Community and the UN Security Council deemed priority enough to take armed action against. It is their actions that have completely misled the populations of those countries who fund such operations with their tax dollars and the Libyan people themselves. These international governing bodies have taken it upon themselves to launch a large-scale conflict solely for the pursuit of their own socio-economic objectives, under the guise of democracy and human rights, an all too familiar tale in a world of selective compassion, particularly when it comes to Africa.


Admittedly, the situation in Libya is very complex and the International Media Institutions only cover certain aspects of this conflict. Understanding the situation unfolding before our eyes in Libya is crucial because blatant lies are being told to the world about what is taking place there. I have done my best to thoroughly research this issue and present a nonbiased account of what is taking place in the North African country of Libya. We are told that after alleged mass uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt erupted and resulting in regime change in February 2011, the people of Libya then launched a full-scale revolt under the current forty-one year leadership of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi. According to Wikipedia, Qaddafi quelled this dissent with an iron fist, allegedly exercising stern brutality and excessive force such as using air strikes and hired mercenaries comprised of mostly sub-Saharan Africans to murder unarmed Rebels and peaceful demonstrators in favour of western style democracy in their country.

Shortly after, economic sanctions led by the United States were imposed against Gaddafi’s regime; France became the first country to recognize the opposition based National Libyan Council as the official government of Libya. On humanitarian grounds, the United Nations Security Council voted and passed Resolution 1973, which sanctioned the establishment of a no-fly zone and the use of ‘all means necessary’ to protect civilians within Libya”. Since March 19th 2011, French Military jets began enforcing strikes during an admitted military ceasefire while destroying equipment of the Libyan military coinciding with British and American forces running integrated air defense missions, which included the use of over hundred tomahawk cruise missiles (priced at 1.5 million dollars per unit).

Although several former African presidents including South Africa’s Thabo Mbeki, Nigeria’s Olusegun Obasanjo and members of the African Union have expressed their views against NATO’s campaign of violence in Libya, which has “Gone beyond the scope of the of [UN resolutions] 1970 and 1973,” said Ramtane Lamamra, the AU’s Peace and Security Commissioner, President Obama and French president Nicolas Sarkozy have declared the U.S. and NATO will not rest until they “finish the job’ in Libya. 

Although initially the issue of Libyan intervention on humanitarian grounds was announced fairly subtly with the intent of expressing minimal contribution on behalf of the US Military to reduce public backlash for expanding America’s Military presence to a fourth front, the democratically appointed leaders of our world now blatantly admit that regime change in Libya is their objective.  On March 21, Barack Obama stated that the military operations against Libya would be “limited in their nature, duration, and scope” and in the service of a “limited and well-defined mission.” However, on March 28, Obama said, “the United States will play a supporting role” in the effort to violently overthrow Libya’s present government. There was no mention of a ceasefire of behalf of the allied forces during the recent G8 Summit in Deauville, France.

Even Reuters makes no attempt to hide the mission objective stating, “British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday that NATO's war to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was entering a new phase and that the deployment of British helicopters would turn up the pressure.” Apparently there is little distinction between humanitarian intervention and an admitted war front. According to the article, the G8 leaders said in their summit communiqué that “Gaddafi had lost all legitimacy because of his use of force against civilians protesting his 41-year rule, he has no future in a democratic Libya and should leave.” Very democratic decision making, I’m sure the Libyan people were thoroughly contacted prior to such a decision being reached.

It’s completely unrealistic given the climate of humanitarian crises in the continent of Africa that rag-tag “freedom fighters” in Libya are given such unwarranted priority, as if no agenda exists behind their backing. Our elected officials speak of liberating oppressed freedom fighters, expecting nothing in return for their efforts, only to lather in the charity of doing a good deed.  Perhaps it was selective compassion when the United Nations ordered the removal of its Peacekeepers from Rwanda and stood by while over 800,000 people were slaughtered with machetes and nail-bats. Clearly, these were the people Henry Kissinger refers to as “useless eaters” therefore concern is best forgotten.


Before dissecting the initial claims of humanitarian atrocities being committed by Muammar Qaddafi’s forces against "unarmed protesters” which include air assault, kidnapping injured patients from Libyan Hospitals, and storming mosques and massacring the religious devotees (surprising, considering Qaddafi considers the Islamic Quran to be Libya’s basis for judicial and legal conflicts),  let’s focus on Qaddafi himself, his philosophy and the modern Libyan state.  In this short clip of Qaddafi taking questions at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City, he tackles the issue of a successor to his Government.

Qaddafi claims he has no legal jurisdiction over the people of Libya and their status would be unaffected regardless of his political activity/inactivity. This is because Gaddafi’s political philosophy is based on his Third International Theory, which challenges the idea of democracy itself, arguing that populist democracy alienates and applies it’s concept towards the alternatively viewed minority. The concept is one of direct popular democracy, where people’s committees and congresses constitute local law instead of traditional parliaments and Government institutions.


Qaddafi envisions his Third International Theory being the natural direction of democracy taken for countries in the future, this kind of concept being distinctly different from a monarchy, republic, or a traditional communist or capitalist system. According to Wikipedia, Gaddafi himself does not hold any official posts, but he remains the leading political figure in Libya. The countries official name, The Libyan Jamahiriya translates directly into the State of the Masses. Although the progress of implementation within Libya is debatable, it is integral to understand the political school of thought through which Qaddafi constructs his worldview.

Libya operates with a centrally planned economy in line with Qaddafi’s philosophy of Islamic Socialism. The economy depends on revenue from the petroleum sector, and it’s important to note that Libya is among the world’s leading producers of oil with over 3.5% of global oil reserves (double the amount once contained in the continental United States).  Libya has recorded very optimistic growth rates and boasts the highest nominal per capita GDP in Africa. Qaddafi was responsible for nationalizing vast oil resources, which was rationally invested in public services such as the production of schools, universities, medical centers, and integral inland infrastructure. The Libyan National Oil Corporation is ranked 25 among the world’s highest grossing oil companies, according to the Associated Press.

During the eighteen-year rule of western-backed monarch, King Idris which ended in 1969, fewer than one in five Libyans were literate. Under Gaddafi, Libya has an 83% literacy rate, which is the highest in Africa or the Middle East and offers free education up until University level.  Although it may be hard to believe, Libyans have access to free socialized healthcare, which includes doctors, hospitals, clinics and medicines, free of charge. Again, the quality of those services are debatable however, subsidised funding is available for people who require surgery overseas. Libya boasts the highest standard of living in Africa, the longest life expectancy, and rated on the UN’s Human Development Index ahead of Russia, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia.  
                                      
Under Qaddafi the ‘Great Manmade River was developed, which is an elaborate pipeline system, which funnels fresh water from beneath Sahara Desert and into Northern cities such as Tripoli, Benghazi, and Sirte. The estimated cost for such extensive infrastructure required by this project is $25 Billion USD, and Libya claims to have completed all the work to date without the financial aid of lending countries or world financial institutions.  The Libyan National Telescope Project site near Kufra is North Africa’s largest astronomical observatory. One has to ask, why is one of the most stable countries in Africa being targeted for systematic bombing and regime change?

REPORTS OF QADDAFI’S BRUTALITY / EVIDENCE OF AL QAEDA FORCES

“We are fighting nothing other than al-Qaeda in what they call the Islamic Maghreb. It’s an armed group that is fighting from Libya to Mauritania and through Algeria and Mali. If you had found them taking over American cities by the force of arms, tell me what you would do?”


– Fom a letter sent by the Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi to the US president Barack Obama

It goes without saying that when regimes are at war, the capacity for things to go wrong is always very high. I don’t doubt the possibility that men on the ground in Libya, regardless of opposition or pro-Qaddafi backing, at least one of those men has done something unethical in the name of their cause since this conflict began. What is also evident is an unequivocal disinformation campaign surrounding the credibility of Qaddafi’s leadership in a blanketed effort to remove him from power. While reports of Qaddafi’s bloodlust and atrocities continue to be reported by the western-owned corporate media, one must take note that even the BCC admits that nearly all of their reports were impossible to confirm, as they were all entirely based on opposition "eye witness accounts." Based on such accusations, the International Federation for Human Rights found Qaddafi guilty of committing crimes against humanity, as defined in Article 7 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and put out a warrant for his arrest.

These flimsy globalist funded institutions such as the ICC are only used to lend credibility to the claims of the corporate media, which use “humanity” as a pretense and behave, only to serve as propaganda arms for the agendas of various intelligence agencies. Qaddafi has been virulently accused of using Libya’s air force to strafe his opposition supporters with aggressive air strikes. However, alternative findings of the Russian Military Satellite Intelligence reportedly discovered no signs of such air strikes taking place.  Admittedly, the US Department of Defense confirms that no evidence exists to confirm or to substantiate these claims. Gaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam claims the ‘popular uprising’ to be a foreign plot to undermine his father’s Government, regular protocol for Americans, (the experts at undermining democracy) similar to CIA-run operations in Serbia and Egypt. Even video footage of anti-government protesters with signs written in English for the foreign press indicate such meddling. And still, we are expected to believe ‘unarmed demonstrators’ stormed and devastated Gaddafi’s Benghazi military stronghold, leaving charred tanks and demolished concrete walls?

The most ironic thing about the varying war theater in Libya is that America is openly funding Al Qaeda, again. "These gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America’s founding fathers", said Ronald Regan while introducing the Mujahideen leaders who would later spilt into the Taliban and Al Qaeda during a visit to the White House in 1985, only after up to $40 billion USD had been invested into their creation and arming. According to a 2007 study done by West Point Military Academy which studied the origins of foreign Al Qaeda operatives in Iraq based on personnel files discovered by US Special forces, the study discovered the north-eastern city of Darnah to be the central point of origin for migrating Jihadists (terrorists by US definition), which is essentially the axis zone of the rebels now backed by the US. In fact on the ground in Iraq, there are more armed Libyans per unit of population than any other nationality. Even Wikipedia admits that the rebel forces waging Jihad against Gaddafi are affiliated with Al Qaeda and have been banned by the UN. This is the same Al Qaeda cell hired by MI5 to assassinate Qaddafi in the nineties.

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi
Historian Webster Tarpley says it best, “Governments around the world need to ask the US, what are you doing arming and promoting Al Qaeda fighters in the those areas of Libya?” On a visit to the rebel-held Eastern Libya, EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, declared she had found only “great aspirations” and “leadership qualities” in the rebel fighters based there. Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the anti-government rebel leader based in Darnah admits his fighters have previously fought against US troops in Iraq and acknowledges their Al Qaeda links. US and British government sources confirm Hasidi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG, which killed dozens of Libyan troops in guerrilla attacks around Benghazi during former uprisings in 1995 and 1996, and has been arrested before by US Forces in Peshawar, Pakistan and subsequently released back to Libya.

In the corporate media Muammar Gadaffi is portrayed in the same light as other prominent Islamic extremists, so it may be confusing to some why such a presence of anti-Gaddafi Islamist militants ideologically oppose his rule. To summarize, it is a history-old battle of true religion versus false religion as interpreted in the Quran. The Islam of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and their cohorts the Wahhabist/Salafi religious sect is a reactionary interpretation of the Quran which seeks to replicate the intolerant political and social structures of 7th century male-dominated feudalistic Arabian society, as commonly practiced in Saudi Arabia. These rebels are paraded across the televisions screens of the world as a pro-democracy force by the corporate owned media, when their long-term aspiration is the installation of an Islamic Emirate under the rule of an Emir, or dynastic independent chieftain.

Wahhabist theologian Yusuf al-Qaradawi embodies this alternative interpretation of Islam by defending female genital mutilation, advocating classic feudalism by having separate systems of law for different classes of people and has called for the death penalty for those who leave Islam. In contrast, Gaddafi sees his version of Islam to be incompatible with any dynastic rule or the idea of an emirate. Among the conservative he is controversial for essentially reinterpreting and criticizing the political and social structures of other Muslim societies where multi-party democracy has been corrupted. Qaddafi also has encouraged women to become involved in the political process and serve in the armed forces. His entourage of female bodyguards is a way of breaking down these taboos in Libya’s traditional society.

Even those in Gaddafi’s own government and inner circle can be persuaded by the West or threatened with death at the hands of British MI6 to desert him and sell out their own country to personally profit. Mustafa Abdul Jalil, who is slated to become the head of the recognized interim opposition government (the National Transitional Council) who was formerly the Minister Of Justice under Qaddafi, called for a no-fly zone stating Our friends (The Allied Forces) will have the best opportunity in future contracts with Libya. The east holds most of Libya’s oil, the greatest reserves in Africa.” Also interesting to note that the flag of Jalil's NTC and the Benghazi based rebellion uses the former “Kingdom Of Libya” flag of former western-backed monarch King Idris, which represents foreign colonial rule. Idris was literally granted the throne by the British after Libyan independence in 1951.

NATO’S HUMANITARIAN INVERVENTION / ETHNIC AND TRIBAL TENSIONS

What’s taking place in Libya right now can only be categorized as a bizarre series of events, which are so contradictory and illegal, it is amazing that this continues without widespread revolt. It is important to recognize that the NATO military are carrying out extra-judicial targeted civilian assassinations, bombing critical civilian infrastructure, and using tomahawk missiles and uranium tipped ordinance while justifying it as a human rights mission! The very act of military intervention under completely contrived pretenses has nothing to do with democracy or human rights, but is a blatant invasion of sovereign countries that resist admitted foreign-funded sedition by the corporate-financer oligarchy, which the “international community” is comprised of.

The United States will go to any length to “protect the people of Libya”, even if it means targeted assassination campaigns while undermining any semblance of legality. On April 30th, this effort to protect the Libyan people by assassinating Gaddafi resulted in the murder of Muammar Gaddafi’s three grand children, and his youngest son Said al-Arab Qaddafi by precision ordinance, supposedly aimed at a “command and control center”. Former US congresswoman Cynthia McKinney who is currently in Tripoli had the opportunity to visit the demolished Gaddafi family home (this alleged “command center”) which she describes as a typical suburban home in a residential area, surrounded by dozens of other family homes. “The strike against this home had everything to do with NATO adopting a policy of targeted assassination and extra-judicial killing — clearly illegal.” NATO must be held responsible for this morally bankrupt campaign of deliberate bloodshed and the use of military force on civilian targets. 

Former US Presidential candidate John McCain and current chairman of the International Republic Institute recently made a trip to the rebel stronghold of Benghazi. Upon visiting the rebel compound, he then called for Al Qaeda, a merciless Islamist mercenary group to be internationally recognized as the Libyan Government. The “War On Terror” is in this man’s morning milk, a stern advocate of the illegal occupation of Iraq which has killed over six thousand American solders, this guy is now advocating handing Al Qaeda rebels an entire country with Africa’s largest oil reserves, granting their provisional Government credibility and acknowledgement and backing their struggle with US taxpayer funded air strikes. "What I have witnessed today in Benghazi is a powerful and hopeful example of what a free Libya could be – a place where the dignity and the desires of all people for freedom and opportunity are respected, I have met with these brave fighters, and they are not Al-Qaeda. To the contrary: They are Libyan patriots who want to liberate their nation."  Again, the US Military’s own report proves that the Benghazi opposition is in fact comprised of Al Qaeda militants. McCain’s hypocritical backing of Islamist militants proves that this agenda must be fulfilled, no matter how many lies are told in this Regan Doctrine hangover to purport a perspective of reality deemed favorable enough to quell public opinion and claim the moral high ground while killing Libyan civilians and Gaddafi’s own grand children.

This ‘shock and awe’ bombing campaign mirrors the climate of ‘Operation Yugoslavia’ in 1999 where US and NATO forces created a civil war by covertly training paramilitary forces in Bosnia (Bosnia Muslim Army) and ethic Albanians in Kosovo (Kosovo Liberation Army) affiliated with Al Qaeda under the guise of combating atrocities being committed by the former Yugoslavian Government, when they were actually committed by the UN backed paramilitary forces which led to an effective carving up of the country.  Researcher Michel Chussodovsky points out that NATO complied a list of military targets, which resulted in dropping bombs on critical infrastructure, power plants, schools, hospitals, residential areas, as we see in Libya and being blamed on Gaddafi. 

Like the Kosovo Liberation Army, the truth is that the Libyan Rebels are the forces committing heinous acts by beheading, mutilating, and consuming the body parts of captured Government soldiers, and celebrating while dancing around waving their body parts. Libyan Rebels have also employed the use of child soldiers and have engaged in a campaign of murder, beating and robbing sub-Saharan African migrant workers, particularly Chadians on the mere suspicion of being mercenaries or informants for Qaddafi. An oil worker from Turkey relays an account of Rebels viciously attacking Chadian migrant workers, “We had 70 or 80 people from Chad working for our company. They cut them dead with pruning shears and axes, attacking them, saying you’re providing troops for Gaddafi. The Sudanese, the Chadians were massacred. We saw it ourselves”.

Formerly unarmed protesters are now using weapons such as landmines according to the BCC, as well as knives, four hundred rifles illegally sent from Qatar, arms dealers on the Egyptian border have also run large operations to supply arms to the rebels, this is admitted by the US and Egyptian Governments.  This of course is a blatant violation of the arms embargo mentioned in Resolution 1973, unfortunately it is laughable to think that any part of this resolution is seriously being followed. Based on misconduct of the armed rebel fighters occupying the North Eastern area of Libya who have targeted darker skinned people in their campaign of violence, it is very likely that widespread ethnic cleansing will take place if the Rebels push towards the Gaddafi-held West and Southwest areas of Libya, particularly in the region of Fezzan where tribal people such as the Tuareg, whom are Sub-Saharan in their appearance have lived for hundreds of years. As Webster Tarpley points out, if this campaign continues, Barack Obama and Susan Rice will preside over a widespread genocide of black people.

The New York Times downplays these acts of carnage by saying "rebels have little evident command-and-control and no clear or consistent rules of engagement — factors that have perhaps contributed to instances of abusive or outright brutal conduct."
The Libyan resistance is guilty of committing sickening war crimes and tactics which NATO has accused Qaddafi of employing, which was the original justification for NATO’s war of ‘humanitarian intervention’ in the first place. This Islamist force being advertised as a “pro-democracy movement” has no articulate vision for an alternative political structure in Libya and are only kept around to weaken Gaddafi’s resistance and eventually to assassinate him, they will be discarded once a puppet leader is put in power and rightfully labeled as terrorists in a bid to extend such a conflict and destabilize the region. The fact that cash-strapped NATO countries are supporting this armed militant mercenary group and using cruise missiles and ballistic weapons against the civilians they claim to be intervening on behalf of is entirely and boldly criminal and action needs to be taken against them.

GADDAFI’S VISION OF GLOBALIZATION / THE NEW MODEL OF IMPERALISM

Muammar Gaddafi has shown incredible stride and resourcefulness in this bitter war waged against him and his people. His conviction has not been shaken, and will likely result in his own martyrdom as he vows “I will not leave my country” even as the United Nations reports an extremely finite amount of food and medical supplies.
The motives for this invasion and demonization campaign are very strategic, with the endgame being a military enforced agenda to gain corporate control of Middle Eastern and Central Asian oil, natural gas, and pipeline routes, which comprise 60% of the world’s natural reserves. The main objective for the allied forces and corporate financiers is to take control of Libya’s vast oil reserves and destabilize anything that may pose a threat to Anglo-American hegemony, namely the Libyan National Oil Corporation. Upon taking power in 1969, Qaddafi took economic control from the British colonizers and nationalized Libya’s oil and other vital resources and has since encouraged an African-wide economic solidarity movement.While the going market value of crude oil is generally more than one hundred dollars, Libyan oil can be purchased at just one dollar a barrel by contrast, leaving Anglo-American oil giants with a hundred-fold profit margin for every barrel sold, by conservative estimates. This is a parasitic looting campaign which views civilians as pests, like ants at a picnic. The message is simple, Give us your oil at the cheapest price, or die”.  

The most alarmingly obvious evidence for the priority given to start this war is as follows, Gaddafi has been targeted and demonized because he was in the process of planning something that would turn the world economy upside down and create a drastic power shift in Africa’s favor. That is the creation of a single Islamic Pan-African Gold Dinar currency. That would mean all products and resources such as oil and natural gas would be traded using Gold, not under valued fiat paper currencies such as a the US dollar. Under this kind of system an economic paradigm shift would occur, where countries involved in this monetary union would essentially be able to vastly increase their influence in the world and develop infrastructure and social services that trounce the Western equivalent, creating the first authentically post-colonial model of Africa.

This would be a bullet in the head of the World Central Banking structure and the fractional reserve banking system in which debt is used to manipulate world markets of all sizes creating a pandemic dump of the global US dollar reserves. Destabilizing the Central Bank of Libya, which is a fully state-owned entity is a top priority for the corporations seeking to carve up and suck Libya dry. In the past Global bankers have had zero leverage there because they have to operate through the Central bank itself, using Libyan Dinars. The Gold Dinar system would allow countries to bypass disingenuous transnational lending institutions, which hinder development such as the IMF and World Bank and take full control over their economic ambitions without adhering to the will of Ben Bernanke and a paper-backed Global financial order manipulated by Wall Street and the City of London. 
                              
                            

African countries paid inflated satellite rental fees from mostly French and European communications companies such as Intesat, paying up to five hundred million dollars a year and some of the most expensive communications fees in the world. The Regional African Satellite Communication Organization is comprised of forty-five African nations who were intent on ending the European communications monopoly in Africa by launching their own satellite, a project that traditionally borrowed from the IMF and World Bank for funding purposes. Qaddafi donated three hundred million USD towards the project as it subsequently launched in 2007, so it’s no surprise his refusal to comply with the daylight robbery schemes of International financial institutions will likely earn him a televised execution.

Qaddafi pledged to back several projects of African economic solidarity, such as the creation of an African-centered investment bank, monetary fund, and central bank to end African dependency on the IMF, where loans are given with the premise of abiding by a ‘structural adjustment policy’ where conditions include mandatory privatization of natural resources, budget cuts for education and social services, and allowing unlimited access for transnational corporations to do their bidding, in said country.  When the US Government froze all Libyan assets they had access to ($30 Billion USD, the largest freeze in history) and as they cried wolf over Gaddafi’s bloodlust, it was to prevent the wheels turning on any of these Pan-African projects that would literally destroy plans for a New American Century, and New Financial World Order.

A report released in February from the corporate think-tank, The Brookings Institute, a propaganda piece entitled “Libya’s Test of the New International Order” sheds light on a world view where International laws can be used to usurp sovereign countries where the ‘international community’ sees fit. They claim the moral authority in this issue because they must act on behalf of the welfare and safety of the Libyan people, however when one looks at their list of corporate sponsors (The Rockefeller Foundation, Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Shell Oil, Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon to name a few) we realize that these corporate think-tanks are the marketing companies for the rape and pillage schemes we call foreign intervention which have allowed certain companies to profit tremendously.  
These are precisely the agents of industry and the military industrial complex responsible for the economic looting in the Middle east which left well over one million Iraqi civilians dead. The goal of these monolithic institutions is to achieve a uniform body of laws and standardized regulations across all nation states through economic unions (such as the European Union) in order to assert their strategic and economic dominance over areas of interest, so the competitor’s (China) cannot gain enough foothold to build a world in their image. Our “elected representatives” are nothing more than public relations specialists relaying an economic agenda in a humanitarian gift-wrap. Countries that refuse to acquiesce to these terms are deemed resistant terror states, places such as Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Myanmar, Venezuela, Iran, perhaps even Indonesia can be demonized as a hub for Islamic extremism and dealt with accordingly if there is enough at stake. This is Colonialism 2.0, Europe has been doing this for hundreds of years and to claim their actions today contribute to any other kind of conclusion is simply a deception.
Geopolitically, intervention in Libya is designed to achieve several long-term objectives such as installing compliant political regimes and establishing a military dominance through AFRICOM (United States Africa Command and US Army Africa) in North and Central/West Africa in countries traditionally in France’s sphere of influence such as Chad, Niger, Senegal, Mali, Congo DPR, and Sierra Leone. France has a large stake in this intervention because it would be the primary loser in Qaddafi’s vision of a unified Africa, namely because it has economic leverage in it’s former colonies such as the Central African Republic, which indicate the confirmation of French Intelligence agencies engineering this intervention for some time. Our thirsty Brooking Institute friends, Exxon Mobil and Chevron have interest in a pipeline project in Southern Chad on the doorstep of Darfur, war torn regions holding extreme oil wealth.  The powers of Anglo-American hegemony cannot afford to let China rapidly develop and dominate the African continent with investments and trade, which will be up to fifty billion dollars a year by 2015, something that commodity spending by America, Australia, and the world are fueling. Certainly, things will be made difficult for China's National Petroleum Corp (CNPC) if the West has it’s way in Africa.

CONCLUSION

It should be no question to anyone that this intervention in Libya needs to be met with revolt and public outrage. The collective consciousness of all people outside the circles of Government or Industrial elitism are being deliberately manipulated to prevent any tangible discussion or widespread disclosure about how the world really works and the system you are born into. How many people have to die before we realise the futility of our ways and the artificiality of our intellectual habitat? According to investigative journalist Jim Tucker, Henry Kissinger has advocated the use of ground troops in Libya and has called for the conflict to be extended for at least another year to encircle Iran on behalf of Israel and to generate monstrous war profits. NATO has announced that it will extend the intervention for at least another ninety days while the American warships, the USS Enterprise, USS Ponce, and USS Kearsarge are currently stationed in the Mediterranean. Four hundred US Marines have been dispatched to Southern Greece to await orders for a ground invasion, as France and Britain begin to launch their warships into the Mediterranean region as well.


Dennis Kucinich explains that Barack Obama has illegally entered this war without congressional approval, public dialogue or any consent whatsoever, only to expand the war theatre to a fourth front at the accumulative cost of five hundred million USD per week to maintain. Paveway bombs weighing two tons each are being readied and loaded into British Jets to drop on Gaddafi’s “command centers”. When does it end? An obscure report called Rebuilding America’s Defences’ published in 2000 by the Project of the New American Century Group signifyed that the military agenda laid to preserve American hegemony is to "Fight and decisively win in multiple, simultaneous theatre wars",  so we’re assured of nothing but the staunch continuity of the way things are.
