EU awaits UN approval for deployment of ground troops in Libya


www.guardian.co.uk

The armed forces, numbering no more than 1,000, would be deployed to secure the delivery of aid supplies, would not be engaged in a combat role but would be authorised to fight if they or their humanitarian wards were threatened. "It would be to secure sea and land corridors inside the country," said an EU official.

Now the start of the land invasion of Libya.

Of course the officail story is to "provide humanitarian relief" but these are soldiers, and they are given orders that they can attack if fired upon (which will ubndoubtly happen)

The troops will be out of Brussels, from a battle group that was put together years ago:


Under a policy going back several years but seldom used, Brussels has a roster of battle groups, with two on permanent standby, comprising a force of about 1,500. The main battle group that would be deployed is German-dominated, which could trigger a row.


No American troops as of yet, but they will have U.S. fighter cover, and as soon as tensions and firefights escalate we will see more U.S. and E.U. troops on the group.

For "humanitarian" purposes of course

Before they walked into Libya the MSM said it would be a piece of cake because Khadaffi's army is in bad shape and has old material. So why does it take so long to invade/liberate Libya?

The deployment of German soldiers, hmhmm, those are technically speaking mercenaries because they don't represent a true sovereign country but the BRD GmbH©. Interesting game...
The next major step will come eventually from Russia which will invade Europe with the same right the western allies invaded Libya.

Russi to invade Europe? Under what basis and why do you think so? I highly doubt this.

Interesting game indeed.....

The ultimate power move against BRICS would be a North American-UK-EU common currency and control of the Middle East/Northern African oil supplies to counter the inevitable Russia-China economic/resource alliance. Seriously, you really think TPTB of the West are going to let nationalistic China become the most powerful economy on the planet without a fight?

The West's hand has been forced by the debt crisis. There's really no other way to make sense of Egpyt/Libya/Syria otherwise with the current financial conditions in the US-EU. It's just like with Iraq, the task forces have already planned out the course of action and justifications, they just needed an event to allow it to happen. 9/11 allowed the first move to happen, seizing control of the second largest oil reserves in the world and establishing a base of US military operations in the Middle East (to then branch out to the surrounding nations). I'm sure they had something different in mind for Northern Africa, but 2008's implosion forced the West's hand and the CIA to began ground operations to facilitate the revolutions.

Hahaha, exactly, everyone doubts that that will happen, just like it has been foretold by many prophecies. One detail that has been foretold numerous times is that Russia will drop a nuclear device of the coast of Britain which will cause a huge tsunami and it will destroy London and large parts of the Netherlands. I know these prophecies from a German book in which the authors tried to bundle the known prophecies and comparing them.

The book is originally from 1996 and it contains a pretty good description of 911, followed by the financial crisis, the uprisings and wars in the middle east (I'm waiting on the invasion of Iran at the moment) and finally the Russians invading Europe. Then something large is about to happen, but that's even more unbelievable and only partly known. It has to do with Germany.

Ever since I read this book I tend to look for confirmation for these prophecies and I keep stumbling across them. Just keep an eye on the Russians. Did you hear what Putin's first reaction was on the intervention in Libya? What about the missile-shield that the US wants to build on strategic point in former Eastern Europe? Remeber the Yukov-scandal, where Putin performed a hostile takeover of that oil-company? Where is that money going, not to the people. BTW, Russians can't stand the West, they hate us. There is also lots of other stuff that keeps reminding me that they are not our friends. Just keep an eye on the news, you'll see for yourself.

European Union . . .
United Nations . . .
New World Order . . .
It's all the same to me!

I love revolutions, but when they are undermined by forces akin to the governments they are trying to overthrow (cough, the Muslim Brotherhood, cough), it is never pretty.
I can only look on and grimace.

The banksters have to make sure their newly established 'Central Bank of Benghazi' can get off the ground. The only way to do that is to put boots on the ground to secure the printing presses. The U.N. is liberating Libya so they can condemn them to an eternity of debt. Soooo, nice of them.

crazy, another full scale war and probably years of occupation

Are you all aware that


But among the names of banks that got tens of billions in loans from the Fed in order to stay afloat was at least one few expected: The Central Bank of Libya.

In the 18 months following the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a foreign subsidiary of the bank of the government of Muammar Gaddafi received a cumulative $35 billion in short-term loans from the Fed. Libya's Central bank received the loans through a foreign subsidiary called the Arab Banking Corp., which has a branch in New York. At the time of the financial crisis, the bank was 29% owned by the Libyan government. But since then the Libyan government has upped its stake in ABC, as it is known, to 59%. So the main beneficiary of the Fed's help is the Libyan government.

Bail them out and then bomb them?
And the bailing out of the Libyan Govt. was only less than 3 months ago

Does this make any sense to anyone????

Nothing that you hear on the news is the real story

I think we gave them that money to buy weapons so they could put up a fight when we invaded them. Pushovers are no fun!

We also want to remove the government controlled Central Bank of Libya, which has virtually zero debts to the outside word, and replace it with the privately owned and newly created ‘Central Bank of Benghazi’ that those ragtag rebels created in their spare time as soon as they got international recognition.

That's true, many former East-Germans want socialism back. Former East-Germany aka Middle-Germany has also a lot of national socialists. The Russians won't liberate, they come to occupy. Liberation will also be by those from who you expect it the least. It's so unbelievable that no one believes it.
You won't believe it either.
ATS has contributed greatly in my research concerning a topic that is largely ignored, even here on ATS.
Libya is one little step towards the climax.

What this tells me the 1000 troops will do is secure transportation of oil, this oil will fund the rebels obviously so they can buy more weapons.

This is going to continue for way too long. I would rather see a massive invasion, atleast then I would feel the effort was honest...

Long term conflicts are preferred, they bring more money, more suffering.
It's all part of the game.

If its on television, and it says so in all the newspapers, then it is quite simply not true.

Well, the funds are now back in their possession, as they froze them. The taxpayer is still on the hook for them.

I'd say it makes a whole lot of sense.
