Can you say 'Wag the Dog?"
This is anecdotal evidence, so I realize it would be easy to discount what I'm about to say. BUT, a Canadian friend of mine is in Russia and was
speaking to some Russian generals just back from Libya. I have no reason to think either of the parties would lie about such a thing. They cannot
understand the news coverage because the cities are calm. Nothing is happening except a skirmish in an outlying area.
There's some discussion as well on this forum: www.cluesforum.info...
Again, the following from the forum is anecdotal, but I am now suspicious that this whole 'revolution' is a hoax.
This is a firsthand testimony of an Italian who has just returned from Tripoli (LIBYA's capital) and writes to the director of an Italian newspaper
(the right wing "Il Giornale") of his personal experience of what is going on down there. I tend to privilege the credibility of such a reader's
comment rather than what the 'info' the mainstream media hammers into the minds of hapless TV viewers.
I come from Tripoli and I tell you that the newspapers tell you a sack of lies
My name is Paolo Pazzini, I live in Tripoli and I have just returned (to Italy) yesterday, February 24th.
Our company has contracts with Libya and that's why I've lived there, in the centre of Tripoli. I would like to back up the statements of the
Italian ambassador Schioppa: in Tripoli, the situation is calm. until yesterday everyone was working, and the bombings of the people are pure
propaganda, and so are the mass graves - pure propaganda. In fact, the Tripoli cemetery located by the seaside and the photos shown by the Italian
(and other) newspapers are normal pictures of burials in that cemetery.
The Italian newspapers and other western media are reporting heaps of lies with the backing of Libyan elements living abroad, ousted by the country. I
am myself working within the military, and I can assure you that not one department of the army, or the navy, or the aviation have been
There are fights in the Bengasi zone and in other eastern cities between the Libyan police (not the Army) and armed gangs. The two ships that, they
say, would have deserted are just lies and pure propaganda. Even the Maltese armed forces have denied ("Times" of Malta) that any Libyan ship has
docked in Malta. There have been only two desertions of aircrafts whose pilots have taken the opportunity to ask for political asylum, but this has
nothing to do with (mass) army forces deserting. The uprising started in Bengasi, as I have heard from military circles, and was fomented by Egyptians
armed to their teeth who entered Libya illegally and took power in Bengasi with Libyan opposition elements. Auto caravans have been stopped around
Tripoli, filled with Egyptians and loaded with western-produced armaments and explosives. And there is no way of knowing who financed these armed
Let us be aware that this propaganda that is being fed to the world (with the backing of the Italian opposition who does it for internal electoral
advantages, with enormous losses for the Italian system) is a transparent game, i.e. cut off Libya from Italy, from ENI, Impreglio, Finmeccanica and
thousands of other industries (we are talking about contracts worth milions of Euros) to take hold of the Libyan oil reserves, their infrastructures
and their strategic position. In fact, today, the British, the French, the Americans, the Germans, etc...etc...are already talking about sending
"military vessels" with "humanitarian aid", or in other words, enact a military occupation of the country. The game is clear (transparent).
I salute you cordially
But perhaps the below will convince you there WERE airstrikes.
