Funny last 4 lines from this... Gaddafi must flee NATO, misinfo from all sides

Victorious rebels consolidate their grip on Libya's capital

Date: August 25 2011

Ruth Pollard in Libya


www.smh.com.au/world/victorious-rebels-consolidate-their-grip-on-libyas-capital-20110824-1jadh.html?skin=text-only


(...)

NATO has started crisis talks about a transition to democracy, how to support the rebels and protect civilians, while one commentator warned: ''The country is now a landscape of multiple militia groups.''

How the NTC and its supporters manage the coming weeks will be the difference between Libya making the transition to democracy, or sinking into an Iraq-like mire of sectarian violence and political instability.

Chemical weapons facilities in Libya were being monitored, as NATO expressed concern that up to nine tonnes of mustard gas, as well as rocket-propelled grenades and surface-to-air missiles, could fall into the hands of al-Qaeda or other militants in the aftermath of the fall of Colonel Gaddafi's regime.

A State Department spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, said the US was working to ensure that ''the governing forces in Libya have full command and control of any [weapons of mass destruction] or any security assets that the state might have had''.

Most recent Tweet on France 24 from BBC journalist, Paul Danahar:

19:xx Tripoli time.

www.france24.com...


pdanahar: Huge cloud of black smoke now over #Gaddafi compound. Fighting still going on. Several loud thuds #Tripoli #Libya(Traduction : Enorme nuage de fumée noire au-dessus du complexe de Kadhafi. Les combats se poursuivent. Plusieurs bruits sourds. Paul Danahar est journaliste à la BBC, il se trouve à Tripoli.)


Loyalists must be reinvesting the compound through the tunnels.

It is believed the Colonel has built huge tunnel complexes that extended many stories underground.

When the fighters first entered the compound they said there was still tea boiling on stoves and they suspected that some of the people at the compound must have fled into the underground complex.

I would bet the fighters are trying to breach the blast doors.

Here is an update from Al Jazeera on the situation in Tripoli:

Gaddafi's loyalists are bombarding the compound where the rebels are located.



Contrary to what is said in this report, according to tweets I have read, the journalists in the hotel have been freed through the intervention of one of the humanitarian organizations working in Tripoli.

I'll bet the Germans built the underground tunnels and bunkers a long time ago.
Get them on the phone. Where are they??? We need intel !

Saddam Hussein did the same thing.

Resolution 1973 "excludes a foreign occupation force". The wording is deliberately ambiguous and was chosen for political effect. It is meaningless, as the resolution does not go on to specify what an "occupation force" is within the context of Resolution 1973. If it had meant ground forces, then it would have said "ground forces".

"All necessary measures" justifies any military or quasi-military presence if you can argue that it is not specifically an "occupation force" - whatever that is, as again, the resolution deliberately fails to specify what that is.

Oh really
Britain's Secret War in Libya: British Special Forces uncovered on the ground
source

War criminals from the Foreign Policy Initiative implore House Republicans to ignore the people & the Constitution for continued war with Libya.

source

Canada has already 435 NATO Troops in the ground in Libya soruce from CBC.

Arming the rebels.
i could more sources to disapprove your cliam on that post.

CIA,MI5 Agents were inside libya since before the protests even started.

sure no foreign occupation force look at Iraq, afghanistan





then it would have said "ground forces".


again ground forces are already in libya, as covert opeartions covering themselfs from been seen on the news.

NATO Troops will be in libya like they are already elsewhere.

Here is an interesting little twist to things:

France 24

www.france24.com...


FRANCE 24: Le président du Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, qui compte parmi les tous derniers amis de Kadhafi, annonce que l'ambassade du Venezuela à Tripoli a été attaquée et pillée. Vraisemblablement, le fugitif Kadhafi ne se trouvait pas à l'intérieur.


The president of Venezuela who is among the last friends of Gaddafi announces that the Venezuelan embassy in Tripoli has been attacked and looted. Gaddafi was not found within.

Wouldn't that be a violation of international law?

What you want to bomb the people because they looted an embassy?

Tripoli is in anarchy right now and it will require UN peacekeepers to restore order. I'm sure France will be up to the task of sending them. If they want the oil that bad that is.

No.

NATO is the custodian of all things legal and all things international. They should demand that their allies deliver the looters to The Hague for trial. Venezuela should be re-imbursed for their expenses in the matter and all NATO intelligence agents who were given access to sensitive Venezuelan documents should have their brains retredded at the nearest Michelin plant.

Their allies are a mass of disorganized militias and guerillas. There isn't any single chain of command.

Like I said before. Its Anarchy.

If NATO was the custodian of all things then they could tell Venezuela to chew on some tires. Besides we dropped a smart bomb right on the Chinese embassy in Serbia back in the Kossovo War. If the Chinese can't get reimbursed, Venezuela has absolute zero chance of it.

Libya: SAS leads hunt for Gaddafi



Source




British special forces are on the ground in Libya helping to spearhead the hunt for Col Muammar Gaddafi, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.





For the first time, defence sources have confirmed that the SAS has been in Libya for several weeks, and played a key role in co-ordinating the fall of Tripoli.






SAS soldiers, who have been dressed in Arab civilian clothing and carrying the same weapons as the rebels,



Was this a surpise? dressed in Arab civilian clothing and carrying the same weapons as the rebels?

From the video commentary.


The US has already apologised to Beijing and agreed to pay $28m (£17.5m) in compensation to the Chinese government, as well as $4.5m (£2.8m) to families of those who were killed and injured.


Venezuela should demand a grovelling apology from the NTC as well.

They'll just charge it all to the Libyans. Libya will be paying the expenses of the gang that is robbing them. I'm sure the NTC has already agreed to do that.

I'm pretty sure that $28 million didn't cover the entire cost to rebuild the embassy or the Sigint equipment they lost in the bombing. They were very lucky to get that much.

It took almost half a year before they finally accepted that token.

NATO has pioneered a new form of warfare. "Operation Stalking Horse."

You just put a bunch of teenagers in pickup trucks and point them at the enemy. Every time they flush out trouble and start getting cut to ribbons, you put in an airstrike to clear the way.

When it comes time to take out the kingpin, where there can be no room for error, you send in the professional killers to do the real soldiering and the real rub out.

It was on CNN Morgan Piers Tonight just a while ago, i posted the update here,so there is no need for more threads on the issue.

So what you think of that? King Idrs Family member claims that The Royal Family will be back in Libya.

Once Again history repeats itself.
