What is actually happening in Libya?
Libya has only 6 million people, but has the largest oil reserves in Africa. Libyan oil is especially required for high quality. U.S. Air Force, along
with British and French, have carried out 7549 air strikes till 19 March. Britain, France and the U.S. sent special forces to direct military
operations so-called insurgents - it is managed by the NATO armies. Units may even make Libijsci disappointed, but the operation is under the control
and direction of NATO commanders and Western special forces in the function of "advisors". New weapons and millions of funding insurgents comes from
the U.S. and other NATO countries that are frozen and usurped the Libyan money in banks in the West. Their military successes outside Benghazi, in the
far east of the country, are tied exclusively to coordinate with air and ground operations of the imperialist NATO. From a military standpoint, NATO
is a Lebanese resistance as a struggle of David against Goliath. The U.S. military alone spends 10 times more money than Libya's gross national
income, according to the CIA-e. In recent weeks, NATO in its operations using different means of aerial surveillance, satellite, air-attack guidance
and special operations in order to "behead" Libyan political and military leadership, and to take command of their capacity. Global economic
sanctions that have previously prevented the state has a permanent and secure access to resources needed to sustain economic system in the long run.
"cumulative effect (NATO coordinated air and ground operations) not only destroyed the Libyan military infrastructure, but is much heavier Gaddafi
officers to command units, so that even the most dedicated squads very difficult to move, supply and coordinate the operation, "reports The New York
Times in" festive "article of 22 August.
USA, UK, France and Italy marked the Libyan government as a target for "regime change" not because of concerns about the protection of civilians and
the democratization of governance in Libya. If that were the motivation of NATO forces could bomb the same reason, Saudi Arabia. There is no choice.
The monarchy does not even dopupta women to drive cars. By law, women must be completely covered in public, or will go to jail. The protests in Saudi
Arabia are very rare, because any form of dissent welcomes imprisonment, torture and executions. Saudi monarchy is protected by U.S. imperialism as
the informal part of the existing sphere of influence, but the United States and is the largest oil producer in the world. U.S. relationship to Saudi
Arabia, traced by Ronald Reagan in 1981, when he said that the U.S. government "will not allow" such as the Iranian revolution. Reagan's message
was clear: the Pentagon and CIA forces will be used to destroy any democratic movement against the power of the Saudi royal family. Reagan unambiguous
statement of 1981 is actually the policy of every successful U.S. administration, including the current one.
Libya and Imperialism
Libya, unlike Saudi Arabia, had their revolution against the monarchy. As a result of the revolution, led by Muammar Gaddafi, Libya emerged from the
sphere of influence of any imperialist power. Sometimes, this North African country was impoverished Italian colony under the heel of Mussolini. After
the Allied victory in World War II, control over land is fomralno transferred to the United Nations and Libya became independent in 1951 under the
leadership of King Idriss. In fact, until the revolution in 1969 the country was governed by the United States and Great Britain. One of the first
acts of revolution is to eliminate the remnants of colonialism and foreign control. Not only that nationalized the oil fields, but is Gaddafi shut
foreign military bases inside the country. In March 1970, Gaddafi's government has shut down two very important British military base in Tobruk and
El Adem. The enemy has become the Pentagon shut down the U.S. air base near Tripoli that the U.S. has managed since 1945. Before the British took
control in 1943, the building served as the Italian military installation. The base was essential for the Strategic Air Command (SAC) during the Cold
War, because it was stationed B-52 bombers and other aviation assets for a potential attack on USSR. When he reached base in Gaddafi's hands, the
government permitted the Soviet war planes to use the airport. The Pentagon in 1986. difficult to simultaneously bombed the base and center Tipolija,
trying to kill Gaddafi. The attempt failed, but he was among the civilian victims and Colonel-year old daughter.
The character of the regime Gadafijevog
Political, social and class orientation of the Libyan regime has gone through several stages of the last four decades. The government and ruling class
reflecting device, regionally, and social antagonisms. The fact that the top NATO-led Interim National Council consists of former senior government
officials Gaddafi, who fled the regime and connect with NATO, is characteristic of the decade the Libyan system instability. Internal contradictions
were increased external pressure on Libya. U.S. eighties introduced far-reaching economic sanctions on Libya. Largest corporations are prohibited from
the West to do business with this country, which had no access to credit and loans. In foreign policy, Libya has provided significant financial and
military support to the struggle for national liberation, including Palestine, Ireland, South Africa and so on. Thanks to the economic policy , living
standards improved significantly after the 1969th Due to the small size of the population and stable rather than oil money, with broad social
benefits, social and economic status of the Libyans had jumped. The country is still a class-stratified into rich and poor, and the gap between rural
and urban areas did exist, but illiteracy is practically disappeared, while education and health care free of charge and available to everyone. Last
year, GDP per capita was among the highest in Africa (14 000 dollars), and the age expectancy has risen to 77, according to the American Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA). Gaddafi's political orientation explicitly rejects both communism and capitalism. He has created an ideology called
"Third International Theory", which is a set of ideas taken from Islamism, Arab nationalism and marsizma. Libya in 1977. preimanovana in the Great
Socialist People's Libyan Arab Džamahiriju. Much of industries, including oil, was nationalized and the regime has provided a growing program
društvog insurance, or policies of the welfare state, modeled on examples from the Soviet Union and some Western European countries. However, Libya
is not a workers' state, or "rule of socialism," using popular, if not the scientific term "socialism". The revolution was not a rebellion of
workers and peasants against the capitalists. Libya remains a class society, although the difference is the class to some extent concealed the
existence of radical and revolutionary committees, the populist rhetoric of the regime. The collapse of the USSR and the "socialist bloc" in Europe
has left Libya without economic and military counterweight to the United States and the Libyan national and foreign economic policy adjustment turned
West. nineties some sectors of the Libyan economic establishment and Gaddafi's government supported the privatization, reduction of social welfare
and integration in Western markets. Populism former regime gradually gave way to the adoption of neoliberal doctrine. However, it was a long process.
The administration of George W. Bush lifted sanctions on Libya, the 2004th year. Western oil companies, banks and other large corporations have begun
to direct inveticije trading with Libya and Libyan companies. The process was accompanied by a new rise in unemployment and reduction of social
benefits, which led to greater inequality and class polarization. However, Gaddafi personally I still find a thorn in the side of the imperialist
powers. They want puppets rather than partners in their plans for exploitation. WikiLeaks has published dispatches diplomatkse State Department
between 2007 and 2010. years to show that the U.S. and Western oil companies accused Gadhafi of so-called "resource nationalism". The Colonel even
tried to re-nationalize the lands of these companies if Libya fails to provide a greater share of revenues from projects. An article in today's (23
08th 2011) The New York Times business section, said openly: "Colonel Gaddafi has proven to be problematic partner for the international Oil
companies, often by raising fees and taxes and bringing other requirements. The new government, strongly associated with NATO can be a bit easier for
Western countries. " Even the latest "CIA book of facts" (CIA Fact Book) pubilkacija on Libya, written shortly before the armed rebellion,
explained the length of time of market reforms in Libya: "Libya is facing a long way of liberalization of the socialist-oriented economy, but initial
steps, including application for membership in the WTO (World Trade Organization), reduction of social expenditures and publication plans for
privatization, laying the foundation for the transition to a market based economy." The beginning of an armed rebellion , 23, led by Libyan
disappointed by the military and political establishment provided an opportunity for the U.S. imperialists, together with French and British
counterparts to forcibly overthrow the Libyan regime and replace it puppet. Of course, the revolt was attended by workers and young people who have
had a lot of justified complaints at the expense of the regime. However, what is dangerous about this armed struggle for power is the composition of
troops, but the class character and political orientation of leadership.
The character of the interim National Council
National Transitional Council (NTC) was founded by leaders of the uprising in Benghazi, the second largest city in Libya. The main one is Mistafa
Abdel-Džalil, a former justice minister who resigned at the beginning of the uprising. He was one of the many neo-liberal and western-oriented
officials in the Libyan government, diplomatic corps and the officer who joined the opposition in the days after the beginning of the rebellion. Once
established, the National Transitional Council began with calls for imperialist intervention. Calls are turned into panic when it became clear that,
contrary to previous expectations, Gaddafi's regime will collapse within a few days, and that the rebels who are faced with inevitable defeat in the
Civil War. In fact, only because of NATO bombing, started 19th March, in a big hurry, the rebellion has failed. The last five months of the war erased
any doubt about the pro-imperialist character of the NPS (National Council of the transition). One significant episode occurred on 22 April, when Sen.
John McCain "surprise" visit to Benghazi. Printed a large banner welcoming, along with the American flag, which read: "The United States - now have
an ally in North Africa." Similarly, relations between NATO and the Libyan "rebel" army, NPS is fully dependent on and subordinate to the U.S.
imperialist regimes , France, Britain and Italy. If the Pentagon, the CIA and Wall Street manage to install a puppet rare in Tripoli, it will only
accelerate and strengthen the threat of imperialist intervention against sovereign regimes in Venezuela and Syria. In any case, we will see the same
process, including the demonization of leaders selected countries, in order to silence or put down the militant anti-war protests against the
aggression of warlords.
