A few relevant notes from a blog I follow:

RIA Novosti Caught Presenting Images of Pro-Qadaffi Rallies as being from Anti-Qadaffi Rallies
meansofcontrol.tumblr.com...

Where did protesters get all the professionally printed hand flags of a 40+ years extinct design on 3 days notice?
meansofcontrol.tumblr.com...

CBS Estimates 200 Dead in Libya; in 1989 they Estimated 60,000 Dead in Romania (only 600 were killed)
meansofcontrol.tumblr.com...

Is this a big business play for oil disguised as democracy protests? Or is it a big business play for oil manipulating the good will and heartfelt intentions of the Libyan people, only to smash them later?

It's all about regime change... From there, the benefits should be obvious.

Not just in Libya either.

No news from any of these "nations in turmoil" can be trusted, nor taken at face value.

This is covert war, ongoing at several fronts. Controlling news and information, propaganda, images, video, spreading misinformation/disinformation etc are a top priority.

That's a very interesting theory you have there. Mmm, you never know.
I feel something more sinister is going to happen.

All I know is that (1) Wikileaks reported the US State Department described Marshal Tantawi as "Mubarak's poodle", (2) Mubarak was an ally of the US.

We now have a military junta running Egypt headed by "Mubaraks' poodle" ... Libya is next, I'm sure.

Mubarak was looking for a way out already, he played along. Egypt was never in doubt, their loyalty was bought and paid for, their military trained by, and armed by the US, and outside of Israel, Egypt received the most $$$$ US aid.

Libya will be a different animal all together.

If this gets out that it was all a play setup by the west and think tshtf. People in the middle east are already so anti- American. They blamed America for Mubarak and now they're saying the western nations aren't doing enough about Libya... Asking why the west has become so silent...

No worries, this will never get any MSM coverage, even if credible proof surfaced, which it likely will. This right here is about as far as it will go.

true

It bears noting that Qadaffi's philosophy, as written in The Green Book, is for the abolition of all political parties because parties breed "dynastic, political families" (see: Bush, Gore, Kennedy, etc.). Libya has no political parties and yet I have seen several examples of western media reporting it as a "one party state." Correctly, it is actually a "zero party state." Not to defend Qadaffi, however, if media can't get a basic fact like this right, what else are they getting wrong?

LOL this one takes the cake.

Libyan "protesters" demanding the "right" to give their oil to the west ...

meansofcontrol.tumblr.com...

Yep, this is a totally legit revolution ...

It's probably safe to say that some folks or organizations may have been holding onto such paraphernalia for just such an uprising.

In addition, the Middle Eastern black market isn't especially known for its accuracies, so an old flag wouldn't surprise me in the slightest... In fact, such defects are probably how they ended up there in the first place!

And of course, there are likely some groups that passed these out to further their own agendas, and promote the revolution's success.


They blamed America for Mubarak and now they're saying the western nations aren't doing enough about Libya... Asking why the west has become so silent...


Because they are probably right. Certainly wouldn't be the first time we've done or tried to incite a rebellion....


Why do you think this is all happening at once? Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Yemen, etc. What better way to defeat your enemies, than make them your friends? Of course, the more surprising element is the success so far...which of course, indicates that we AREN'T behind it....

should have probably posted this to this thread instead of starting a new one ... Ambassador Huntsman just caught on video at meeting of Middle East-linked protest groups:
