Keeping the Muslim world distracted is the lynch-pin of the "allied" strategy....and above ALL disrupt/discourage Islamic Banking Worldwide in various ways....
"So, you said you were reconnecting electricity to the number 5 & 6 reactors, and even though these were non-operational at the time of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami, and even though reactors 1, 2, 3 and 4 are the 'core' of the problem, and even though the spent fuel stored in numbers 5 & 6 was blown all around, scattered all about, and even though even these reactors sustained incredibly serious damage to their housing and structure, how could you expect the cooling systems to possibly work in even these facilities?"
TEPCO and/or Government Official: "Hey look, war broke out in Libya."
Don't forget Cuba. Fidel is a personal puppet of the Rockefellers....from Inception in the 50s...
But when he is no longer needed...he'll get the treatment too.
Bring "democracy" back to Cuba. Pack the island with McDonalds, Wallmarts.
Let them party like it's 1999. Then...start another "revolution".
It's a formula that always works. Until it doesn't....
The US and NATO are waging war against Libya in order to put a puppet regime in power and, possibly, breakup Libya into two or more "independent countries"....
This United States of America finds Libya a good “feast” to eat. That is the way it is on the international scene. Arabs have the oil which runs the Western engine. The West is lurking and stalking to capture the oil fields, emasculate Arabs and Muslims....and above ALL disrupt/discourage Islamic Banking Worldwide in various ways....
You have to read up on Sarkozy and the Mediterranean Union to understand this. Nobody is bombing Libya "to protect innocent civilians" as we have been hearing all the heads of states repeating over and over these last few days/weeks. Does anyone ever recall any Western nation going in militarily to protect "innocent civilians"?? Let me know. I can't think of any.
LOL...., Ounce CIA...Always CIA.....
"The Mediterranean Union: Dividing the Middle East and North Africa"
The Middle East and North Africa are in the process of being divided into spheres of influence between the European Union and the United States. Essentially the division of the Middle East and North Africa are between Franco-German and Anglo-American interests. There is a unified stance within NATO in regards to this re-division.
While on the surface Iraq falls within the Anglo-American orbit, the Eastern Mediterranean and its gas resources have been set to fall into the Franco-German orbit. In fact the Mediterranean region as a whole, from Morocco and gas-rich Algeria to the Levant is coveted by Franco-German interests, but there is more to this complex picture than meets the eye.
Unknown to the global public, several milestone decisions have been made to end Franco-German and Anglo-American squabbling that will ultimately call for joint management of the spoils of war. Franco-German and Anglo-American interests are converging into one. The reality of the situation is that the area ranging from Mauritania to the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan will be shared by America, Britain, France, Germany, and their allies.
These spheres of influence are really spheres of responsibility in a long campaign to restructure the Middle East and North Africa. The services agreement between Total S.A. and Chevron to jointly develop Iraqi energy reserves, NATO agreements in the Persian Gulf, and the establishment of a permanent French military base in the U.A.E. are all results of these objectives. Militant globalization and force is at work from Iraq and Lebanon to the Maghreb.
Quoting from Nebojsa Malic’s “To the Shores of Tripoli: Blundering into Libya” on ANTIWAR.COM
“Between all the non-news about Libya and the shocking images of devastation wrought by the earthquake and the tsunami in Japan, the tiny Gulf kingdom of Bahrain has received very little media attention. It is the events in Bahrain, however, driving up the global oil prices and possibly portending a wider conflict in the Gulf.
“Bahrain is an island kingdom ruled by a Sunni Arab dynasty with connections to the Saudi royals, itself connected to Saudi Arabia by a causeway. The majority of Bahrainis, however, are Shia Muslims. For a month now, the people have been demonstrating against the government in Manama, only to be clubbed, gassed, and shot. All assembly has now been banned, and Saudi troops have entered Bahrain to help the royal family suppress the protests. Even as Washington called on the government to negotiate with the protesters, all the protest leaders were under arrest.
“How come there are no calls for an intervention in Bahrain? Well, for one, it is a major base for the U.S. 5th Fleet. Sunni Arab rulers of Arabia and the Gulf states have been the principal U.S. allies for decades. So, while the Shia majority in Bahrain is crushed so as not to give their brethren in Saudi Arabia any ideas, Washington turns the other way.
The West will earn back some credibility on the day, when they will also bomb the regimes in Bahrain, Yemen, Syria and Saudi Arabia.....Until that has happened, the Western leaders must be regarded as nothing but a bunch of bloody hypocrites! Which doesn't mean, that it wasn't the right thing to do, to stop Kaddafi from a bloodbath against the people in Benghazi.....but the continued "humanity selection" by the West when it comes to foes and allies, doesn't only smell a little bit rotten...., no, IT STINKS BADLY!
The "enlightened" nations are fighting for the rights of the oppressed. Using their superior military power to promote democratic goals, they are expressing the values of international responsibility that globalization was always supposed to nurture. The mobilization of Arab states like Egypt and Qatar for military action against Kaddafi, and the agreement of other Arab states to block Libya's air space, reinforces the credibility of the allied forces' attack on Libya.
For the first time since the first Gulf War, Arab states have agreed to support violent Western intervention in the "Arab world." Such support, however, is founded on a complicated array of calculations. Egypt has supported the action in Libya to signal to its own citizens that it backs human rights struggles. Saudi Arabia is endorsing the attack in Libya out of a desire to enhance the legitimacy of its military intervention in Bahrain.
Meanwhile, the Arab League has agreed to the action taken in Libya, and went so far as to demand that Libyan air space be closed, as a kind of symbolic statement; the League knows it lacks the power to solve any crisis in the Middle East.
Based on past experience, such air attacks are not powerful enough to topple political regimes. And beyond this practical issue, the military intervention in Libya raises a number of complex questions. For example, how will the military action impact the civil rebellion against Kaddafi? And how will any new leader who is elected or appointed win recognition for the revolution as an independent, sovereign force?
Movements of rebellion in the Arab world have emerged as spontaneous civil protests that rely largely on modes of communication, not firearms. The contrast has been consistent and clear: the regimes have used guns, while civilians have protested peacefully. The military action in Libya undermines this division of labor. True, rebels in Libya have been firing rifles, but they have not been trying to perpetrate a military coup.
Why is it that in Bahrain or Yemen, where dozens of civilians have been killed, and the army continues to clash with civilians, there has been no Western intervention? Will Tomahawk missiles be fired on Syria if the regime continues to order armed forces to disperse protesters through violent means?
No doubt, the choice of Libya as a battleground does not derive solely from a new policy principle - featuring a willingness to take action in any place, to apply the role of "international responsibility to protect." Instead, a cool risk-benefit analysis is in play in Libya.
An attack in Yemen would mean America's loss of its last shaky reed of support for its war against Al-Qaida terrorist bases; and an attack in Syria would possibly jeopardize security in Israel, while strengthening Iran and Hezbollah. Libya, in contrast, is a comfortable target; the West is currently able to view itself as a "partner" in a civil uprising for democracy.....
- Arab League criticises Western strikes on Libya
- Russia criticizes Western military intervention in Libya
- China Criticizes the Allied Attacks against Libya
"Despite the fact that it was French war planes which launched the first attacks, it's clear that this early phase of the operations is an overwhelmingly American affair - all but a very small number of cruise missiles have been fired from American ships and submarines, " said Paul Adams, the BBC correspondent in Washington DC, while commenting on the air and missile strikes launched by the US, France and the UK against ground targets in Government-controlled areas in Libya on the night of March 19,2011.
2. As I watched the TV visuals and read reports on the strikes, I was reminded of what the George Bush administration called the decapitation strikes before it started the invasion of Iraq in 2003. The military action in Libya has been projected as having the limited objective of a humanitarian intervention to protect civilians in the areas under the control of the rebels. But its real objective is to have Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan despot, removed from power as quickly as possible and install a pro-Western leader at Tripoli so that Western oil and gas companies could return to Libya and resume oil/gas production.
3. Oil--- and not human rights or concern for democracy--- is the driving force in Libya as it was in Iraq. Saddam Hussein paved the way for his own isolation and destruction by antagonizing his own people through cruel repression and his neighbors through his arrogance. Muammar Gaddafi has similarly paved the way for his own isolation and ultimate destruction through similar policies of repression and arrogance. No force on earth could have saved Saddam in 2003. No force on earth could save Gaddafi in 2011.
4. Gaddafi is politically doomed. When a ruler---- be a democrat or a despot---- loses the support of his people his end is inevitable. The question is no longer whether Gaddafi will fall, but when and under what circumstances. What suffering it would cause to the Libyan people? Are they going to be the real beneficiaries of the UN-authorized and Western-manipulated intervention or the consumer economies of Italy and other European countries dependent on the flow of oil and gas from Libya?
5.The Iraq invasion set in motion the train of events that ultimately led to the discrediting of the policy-makers of the Bush Administration in the US and the Tony Blair Government in the UK. As Obama himself had often conceded, the involvement in Iraq contributed to the USA's difficulties in the Af-Pak region.
6.One thought Obama had learnt the right lessons from Afghanistan and Iraq. It is apparent he has not. After the Second World War, the US had rarely covered itself with glory when it embarked on external adventures----whether it be in Korea or in Vietnam or in Somalia or in Afghanistan or in Iraq. If Obama thinks Libya could be an exception, he is mistaken.
7. The only effect of the Libyan adventure will be that the march of democracy, which started in Tunisia and spread to Egypt, will be stopped.The Arab despots, who have jumped into the Western bandwagon against Gaddafi, have done so not because their hearts bleed for the civilians in Libya and for their human rights. They have done so because they calculate that the diversion of the Western attention to
Libya enables them to crush the human rights and aspirations for democracy of their own people.
8. The Western need for Arab support in Libya in order to show it as a truly international coalition of Western crusaders and Islamic people has already led to a cruel suppression of the pro-democracy agitators in Bahrain with Western voices and conscience remaining muted as the Sunni ruler, with the help of 2000 ground troops from the States of the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC), crushes the Shia protesters. Western near-silence in Bahrain today and in Saudi Arabia tomorrow is the quid pro quo for the Arab support in Libya.
9. Whatever be the outcome in Libya, its echoes will be heard wherever American lives are threatened and American interests are endangered---whether in the Af-Pak region, or in Yemen or in Egypt or elsewhere. We have seen the resurgence of the Afghan Taliban in Afghanistan with a Neo Taliban keeping the NATO troops bleeding. We will be seeing a resurgence of Al Qaeda with a Neo Al Qaeda endangering American lives and interests everywhere. Anger breeds terrorism. More anger will breed more terrorism....
The United Nations is a sick joke that has only grown more obscene over time. The hidden agenda of the UN is more than apparent in the continuing double-standards concerning anyone in "Club USA," and the rest of the world. If you are in the club than you can do anything to anybody you want and the world press will not utter a line in protest. If you are not in the club, then anything that the good old USA does to you is nobody's concern. UN Sec. Gen. Moon is a fucking hypocrite, issuing a warning to Mideast authoritarians, which doesn't apply to the worst "authoritarians" of them all, the House of Saud. The United Nations is a stinking tool of global fascists hell-bent on bringing all of the world under the umbrella of the American dictatorship. The UN's sole purpose is to underwrite American aggression on the rest of the world, under the guise of humanitarianism.
Bombing the hell out of all Libyans who oppose the American-created "rebel forces" is an extremely "humanitarian" gesture. Humanity has been given a common cause--defeat the enemies of the new "American Reich."
The "Fourth Reich" is fully "MADE IN AMERICA." Good luck, when the rest of you assholes supporting this latest aggression wake-up and hear the fists of the "New Order" banging upon your door. As you are handcuffed, hooded and beaten senseless, before being dragged-off into the night, amid the muffled screams of your family, whom you will probably never see again, think of how you supported the parade to bomb Libya and to wipe-out most of the Muslim world....
Nicolas Sarkozy, the clown of the west walked in like a duck as if his both buttocks were stitched together to announce French operation against Libya touches the heights of western hypocrisies and their DNA still carries the colonial greed for easy wealth.
Bottom line is they want the oil and the re-establishment of colonial domination, Libya's high-quality, low-sulfur oil is not that easily replaced by the sulphur-heavy Saudi oil, particularly in Europe, which is short of refineries.
According to Human Development Index for Africa and it has the highest life expectancy on the continent. Libya attained the highest per capita income among African states. Libya enjoys the highest gross domestic product (GDP) at purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita of all of Africa. The quality of life is over a hundred times better than it was when he took over in 1969, when he instilled a policy of control of Libyan resources by Libyans for Libyans, and then literacy rates rose from 10 to 90 per cent.
During the global crisis when food prices soared, Gaddafi's government eliminated the taxes in order to make food more affordable.
The construction of a broad network of giant pipelines was undertaken (the "Great Man-Made River") bringing fresh water from an enormous lake beneath its large desert, in order to serve the needs of Libya's 6 million population.
Western and some western puppet Arab regimes are attacking Libya to save Libyan people and sending troops to crush people in Bahrain, and western silence over Yemen where the dictator kills his own people, what is this?
The latest resolution from the United Nation means that this organization is just an institution for approving the aggression of Western countries against small states.
Nothing is said or done about the crimes committed by Israel in Lebanon and daily committed against Palestinian small kids which, despite having being condemned by the United Nations, have never been considered by the United States or NATO for a possible armed intervention, much less "no fly zones."
Why the Hippocrates US and west is silent on Balochistan where real genocide is being committed against Baloch people by state agencies of Pakistan ?
Today we see the west came to defend the so called poor Libyan civilian population against the Gaddafi regime with their military might now wait and see how many they will kill and cripple country and push it back in stone age before they install another puppet regime to get free oil and lucrative contracts to rebuild what their so called smart bombs will destroy in days ahead.
We ask where these human loving western powers were when ISRAEL bombs and starves the poor helpless Palestinians women and children with most lethal weapons including internationally banned weapons. Why they look so impotent then why they show their muscles on helpless peaceful countries let’s see at the history the US alone killed and destroyed lives of hundreds of millions of human beings on earth during past 60 years.
What they did in Iraq? They starved till death 2.5 million Iraqi women and children after the first Gulf war from 1992 till 2003 and they killed 1 million Iraqis and completely destroyed the whole country from north to south from east to west in 2003 invasion all in pretext to liberate Iraqi people the only infrastructure in Iraq they did not touch was Iraqi ministry of oil and oil infrastructure rest were carpet bombed.
They killed more than 3500 best Iraqi scientists and forced the rest to migrate in western countries once thriving and developing country with completely free education, health services and almost free food items, today Iraqi live in worst situation in 21first century there is nothing left billions $ stolen Iraq is robbed and destroyed museums were even looted and those items end up in western countries supper rich private collections a country totally destroyed and a nation left in ruins by these human rights loving west.
All in the name of human rights and democracy, we perfectly know how much democracy the western world enjoys themselves, when whole Europe and North American filled their streets in anti war demos in the wake of Iraq invasion their rulers simply ignored them.
The western world robbed and plundered the wealth of world for 500 years directly and now do it through their proxies like UN through dictators, through Arab monarchy sheikhs different secret agencies funded NGOs and puppet rulers in so called third world, once so called third world used to be very rich and developed then the west before the invasion of these cunning greedy Europeans.
What they achieve by their human right defenses, first artificially create problems and then invade to eliminate human right violators whom they planted themselves before.
The problem is that after the collapse of soviet union there is no power to counter them, they very cunningly isolate their advisories and use all their mighty propaganda to neutralize their abilities to defend themselves the west became the modern world’s herds of wolfs who hunt in groups or in other words the collation of the willing as Mr. Bush calls them.
Their aim is clear rob in style, they first promote these dictators who kill their own people without mercy, who in exchange give all the construction contracts to western countries with very expensive prices they hire western expert with unimaginably high salaries’ pay huge amounts of money to western visiting delegations and buy useless weapons from western courtiers ironically in conflict times these weapons look useless toys without any effects because the basic components of these weapons are not sold to them, as it proved in real time, in 1965 when Egypt was in war with Israel the Egyptian anti aircraft guns were empty without real shells.
We all know how the French and Italian brutally occupied and exploited North African countries only some 30 years back, toady again France is in forefront in human right defense against an isolated small country with 6 million people and almost without any effective army, their aim is to plant their puppet regime with a label of democracy and take away oil gas and other mineral and capital wealth.
They freeze 100 of billions of Libyan state money invested in western countries now using that money to finance the so called Libyan opposition by selling on them their weapons and using Libyan money to fight Libya.
One wonders why these GCC countries with such vast amount of wealth and free fall of oil dollars live so poor and jobless because they do not own their countries wealth its control by the grand spider the west who sucks out all their wealth rest is sucked by these royals and sheikhs majority of the people of these countries are just hand to mouth with poverty.
The west without any mercy exploits and robs the wealth of the third world countries in proxy but the Arab world is place of lucrative business field for western world mostly the US and Britain who own 70% of the oil wealth of these countries directly and rest with joint ventures and technical help the GCC countries Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman, interesting whole economy of Oman is run and controlled by British MI 5.
Apart from direct control of GCC countries’ economies the US forcefully sells 60 billions $ worth weapons to Saudi and UAE alone every 2 year, nobody knows why Saudi with its 25 million population needs that many weapons and military hard ware’s everybody knows when a real war breaks out against Saudis they will not be able to use none of these weapons because they do not have neither the men power or the expertise to use them, that only means another way of arm twisting by the US to take money out of Saudi pockets.
The western countries passport holders visit these countries without any visa or without any other kind of restrictions but when these countries people visit west they are humiliated at their airports as if they are all potential terrorist the double standards are visible at every stages Arab blood costs nothing where as western every single drop of blood will cost Arabs with billions of barrels of oil and devastations unless the true nationalists take power these looting and shootings will never end.
The western powers destroy everything like in Iraq now Libya tomorrow any other country first they test their new weapons effectiveness on real battles fields they enjoy twice first destroy and test their weapons, and then control and suck out all the oil wealth under their control in rebuilding the destroyed infrastructure and all the military hard ware of the country under attack.
But if we see the consequences of these attacks they are far reaching, To cripple the will of these countries and their people to oppose the will and dictation from west.
.Prolong the life of artificial state of Israel
.Send massage to the Arab and other third world countries who fires the shots
.They want prove to every nation that UN is their rubber stamp organization
.Western powers direct intervention in the internal affairs of other sovereign States and of geostrategic control of Arab natural resources .
If the west is really interested in human rights they must stop not supporting these undemocratic dictators in the Arab world stop looting their wealth stop selling the useless toys to them, and support and create civil society in these countries and promote human rights and democracy promote peace and do honest business.
Stop Israel using lethal force against innocent Palestinian people and force Israel to accept two state solutions, support and protect Baloch and Kurdish people struggle for freedom and promote real democracy in Afghanistan, Pakistan and region as whole then people of the region will understand their intentions and the growth of extremism will diminish and world peace will become a reality but unfortunately these are only dreams and west as always busy with dark under cover business of loot plunder destroy and silencing their critics and rule the world with iron fist with such attitude the world peace will remain a dream the poor get poorer and wealthy get wealthier using western corporate businesses and military power to enslave the rest world.
