Breaking News: The UN have agreed to release $1.5bn (around £1bn) in Libyan assets for humanitarian aid.
Sky News said that the deal could be agreed because the US "convinced" South Africa to agree.... sounded a bit weird

The United States is working with the United Nations to release from $1 to $1.5 billion in U.S.-held frozen Libyan assets, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said at a briefing in Washington DC on Tuesday.

Nuland said officials plan to give the assets to Libyan rebels' National Transitional Council for humanitarian purposes and to “help it establish a secure, stable government."

The U.S. has $37 billion in frozen Libyan money, while Germany blocked 7.3 billion euros. Britain has frozen about 12 billion pounds and the Netherlands has frozen 3 billion euros, according to the Associated Press.

This move seems rather premature doesn't it?? Nothing like putting a blank check into the hands of unknown rebel forces/Al Qaeda forces. The dust and the reality have not even settled yet. Why the rush??

Wow...so this was posted up about a week ago and now we are hearing about it in the news.

Essentially talking about talking this "humanitarian aid" money and using it for its own "humanitarian aid missions"
ie Haliburton, etc...

Watching Russia Today, they have a different slant on it according to someone that was interviewed.
They are saying that alot of the rebels are actually troops from qatar in civillian clothes and claim that Aljzera news channel is making 'sensational claims' over the rebels progress.

The person interviewed is also saying that the majority of Trippoli is not under rebel control, just small pockets are under control.
When the RT presenter asked this person why the western news channels are distorting the current uprising, this person said its because of oil contracts that the western countries wants to secure.

Maybe this person has a point.

Two minutes later it was then reported that Italy is freeing up $1.5 billion dollars of money (posibly seized Goddafi assets) for the rebels.
Just a note, Italy was one of the biggest oil importers from Trippoli

That would explain why there was a Qatar Flag on the Top of gaddafi compound in one of Aljzera footages.

Thats why i prefer Russia Today over Aljzera.


other wise why is this boy drawing a flag of qatar in this picture?
