I only recently started paying attention to the conflict in Libya. I actually believed what they were telling me on TV. It seemed obvious to me Gaddafi was indeed some sort of evil dictator. Therefore I didn't see any real conspiracy, it made sense that the Rebels would want to end the current regime. It took this video and this thread to make me question the mainstream projection of the conflict.

Recent news has reported that "The charred remains of about 53 people were found in a warehouse in Tripoli, apparently opponents of Gaddafi who were executed, Britain's Sky News reported on Saturday", and they sling it all over the mainstream news; yet they ignore all the evidence for war crimes committed by Rebel forces. They completely ignore the fact both sides are taking losses.

NATO are bringing death and destruction to a prosperous and peacefull country, they are actively participing in the destruction of an established Government and the reasons for doing so are clearly sinister. Why should NATO get to decide such things? Is it not up to the people of Libya to oppose the regime if they believe it is out of control?

1.7 million people assembled in Green Square, Tripoli to show defiance against the NATO bombings of Libya. That is 95% of Tripoli's population, or around 1/3 of the entire population of Libya. If the Rebels truly wanted the best for their country, why would they set up a central bank controlled by the Rothchilds when their old one issues debt free currency?!?

In 1951 Libya was the poorest country in the world. Before this conflict started they enjoyed the highest standard of living in Africa, ahead of Russia, Brazil and Saudi Arabia. They have free high quality healthcare and homes are considered a Human right. Newly married couples get $50,000 for a new house. All loans have 0% intrest by law. Let me conclude with an excerpt from Gaddafi's Green Book:


The freedom of a human being is lacking if his or her needs are controlled by others, for
need may lead to the enslavement of one person by another. Furthermore, exploitation is
caused by need. Need is an intrinsic problem and conflict is initiated by the control of
one's needs by another.


Housing is an essential need for both the individual and the family and should not be
owned by others. Living in another's house, whether paying rent or not, compromises
freedom. Attempts made by various countries to solve the housing problem did not
provide a definite solution because such attempts did not target the ultimate solution - the
necessity that people own their dwellings - but rather offered the reduction, increase, or
standardization of rent, whether it went to privately or publicly-owned enterprise. In a
socialist society, no one, including society itself, has the right to control people's needs.
No one has the right to acquire a house additional to his or her own dwelling and that of
his or her heirs for the purpose of renting it because this additional house is, in fact, a
need of someone else. Acquiring it for such a purpose is the beginning of controlling the
needs of others, and "in need freedom is latent".


Income is an imperative need for man. In a socialist society, it should not be in the form of
wages from any source or charity from any one. In this society, there are no wage-earners,
but only partners. One's income is a private matter and should either be managed privately
to meet one's needs or be a share from a production process of which one is an essential
component. It should not be a wage in return for production.


Transportation is also a necessity both to the individual and to the family. It should not be
owned by others. In a socialist society, no person or authority has the right to own a
means of transportation for the purpose of renting it, for this also means controlling the
needs of others.


Land is the private property of none. Rather, everyone has the right to beneficially utilize it
by working, farming or pasturing as long as he and his heirs live on it - to satisfy their
needs, but without employing others with or without a wage. If lands were privately owned,
only the living would have a share in it.

Land is permanent, while those who benefit from the land undergo, in the course of time,
changes in profession, capabilities and existence.

The aspiration of the new socialist society is to create a society which is happy because it
is free. This can only be achieved by satisfying, man's material and spiritual needs, and
that, in turn, comes about through the liberation of these needs from the control of others.
Satisfaction of these needs must be attained without exploiting or enslaving others;
otherwise, the aspirations of the new socialist society are contradicted.

Gaddafi won't quit so easily. He has become a big thorn to NATO and if this Libyan War doesn't end by this year, people will naturally start questioning NATO's involvement in Libya.

And just to add more evidence of this disinfo campaign, many Pro-Gaddafi Twitter accounts and Facebook groups are being hacked into and being removed.

I know this because I was following those groups.

Total disinfo on this entire "conflict" in regards to UN involvement. I couldn't understand why they would even get involved but then some recent reports clarified it for me:

What BP Has At Stake In Libya

BP had to halt its plans to drill in offshore in Gulf of Sirte and in onshore sites in Ghadames because of the six-month old uprising that saw the oil output of Libya fall from 1.6 million bbl/day to approximately 100,000 bbl/day.

It has been translated on google,so i am sorry if everything is not gramaticlay!

What is actually happening in Libya?
28.08.2011. -
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.

Fake reason

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.

I've posted this link before, however, this subject is very unknown and I believe should be a key discussion point in the reasons behind this invasion. This project was the last step in proving Libya was a self sufficient country, and Mr. G knew (as his speeches throughout the project, and especially at the completion ceremony show) damn well that the west was going to kill him for it.

The elitest are in control. They will stop at nothing to maintain that control. resources areharder and harder to find as we continue to GROW in demand for resources. If we could have tappered this off 20 years ago things wouldnt be so bad now, but we did not.

I just wonder when this wil turn from countries to commoners. If you have 100 chickens, and they kept reproducing, you were able to maintain but one day lost your job. What happens to the chickens? Eventually it will seem more feasable to take out the demand rather than increase the supply at the expense of others.

Thanks for your post.

Even if a few rocket launchers were kept there that's hardly a valid reason to bomb such critical infrastructure! And they claim these rocket launchers were being used by loyalists against civilians?

If anyone [collectively] in this country gave a sh:t about anyone but themselves, or understood how this world (and, specifically how the U.S. operates, and is perceived) really works, they would pay attention to what is going on there, and be scared as hell.

We invade every other country under the auspices of spreading freedom, liberty and democracy, and every available opportunity we are stripping those very things from it's own citizens.

If you don't believe that there is a 'shadow government' or ultimate elite body really running things, then you are just not paying attention. We are a police state, we are just turning the others first. We are the big bully on the block that does whatever the fvck we want, whenever the fvck we want.

And, that can't last forever.

Thanks for providing the post. I think the most disturbing factor is that they have setup they're own financial
institution which is going to put that country in debt and suck all of it's oil. To top it off, this is all being enforced
by the united nations which has an outward appearance of peace and prosperity.

It's okay though, Obama is a just man who recently won the nobel prize..

Great thread, happy to post in it. Here is the video embed, everyone should watch it:

As well as doing immense good for his country Gaddafi was a threat to the world's elites for these reasons:

1) Extremely pro-African. He was a unifying force that was a direct threat to AFRICOM - America's Afican military alliance. Libya would also not join Africom.

2) Support huge Chinese investments in Libya.

3) A driving force behind the African Dinar and wanted to use Libya's oil to inject large amounts of money into African Dinars.

He stepped over the line in too many areas and had to be taken out. He was a threat to American influence in Africa, he was a threat to the US Dollar and support Chinese Expansionalism. Now we'll have an Al-Queada backed government in Libya with Sharia Law and extreme tribal violence. Mission accomplished.

Oh, and nice "No-Fly Zone". That mandate soon turned into "Bomb anything that belongs to Gadaffi and be Al-Queada's airforce supporting their operations 100%". NATO, and the world, make me sick for letting this travesty occur.

Some cables just released by Wikileaks expose just how closely US and Ghadaffi were working together until recently and how US was training Ghadaffi military and how TPTB are absolutely aware of the fact that some of the rebels are Al Qaeda operatives.


WikiLeaks cables expose Washington’s close ties to Gaddafi

by Bill Van Auken

US embassy cables released by WikiLeaks on Wednesday and Thursday expose the close collaboration between the US government, top American politicians and Muammar Gaddafi, who Washington now insists must be hunted down and murdered.

Washington and its NATO allies are now determined to smash the Libyan regime, supposedly in the interests of “liberating” the Libyan people. That Gaddafi was until the beginning of this year viewed as a strategic, if somewhat unreliable, ally is clearly seen as an inconvenient truth.

The cables have been virtually blacked out by the corporate media, which has functioned as an embedded asset of NATO and the so-called rebel forces that it directs. It is hardly coincidental that the WikiLeaks posting of the cables was followed the next day by a combination of a massive denial of service attack and a US judge’s use of the Patriot Act to issue a sweeping “production order” or subpoena against the anti-secrecy organization’s California-based Domain Name Server, Dynadot.

The most damning of these cables memorializes an August 2009 meeting between Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and his son and national security adviser, Muatassim, with US Republican Senators John McCain (Arizona), Lindsey Graham (South Carolina), Susan Collins (Maine) and Connecticut “independent” Joe Lieberman.

But the creation of a new central bank, even more so than the new national oil regime, left analysts scratching their heads. “I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising,” noted Robert Wenzel in an analysis for the Economic Policy Journal. “This suggests we have a bit more than a rag tag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences.”
