Libya’s Lesson for Iran: Beware of Rapprochement


Libya’s Lesson for Iran: Beware of Rapprochement

Britain and the US used the so-called “rapprochement” with Gaddafi’s Libya to cultivate a fifth column and prepare the ground for war

Britain and the US used the so-called “rapprochement” with Gaddafi’s Libya to cultivate a fifth column and prepare the ground for war

Three years ago, in late October 2011, the world witnessed the final defeat of the Libyan Jamahiriya – the name by which the Libyan state was known until overthrown in 2011, meaning literally the “state of the masses” – in the face of a massive onslaught from NATO, its regional allies and local collaborators.

It took seven eight months for the world’s most powerful military alliance – with a combined military spending of just under $1 trillion per year – to fully destroy the Jamahiriya (a state with a population the size of Wales) and it took a joint British-French-Qatari special-forces operation to finally WIN control of the capital. In total, 10,000 strike sorties were rained down on Libya, tens of thousands killed and injured, and the country left a battleground for hundreds of warring factions, armed to the teeth with weapons, either looted from state armouries or provided directly by NATO and its allies. Britain, France and the US had led a war which had effectively transformed a peaceful, prosperous African country into a textbook example of a “failed state.”

Yet the common image of Libya in the months and years leading up to the invasion was that of a state that had “come in from the cold” and was now enjoying friendly relations with the West. Tony Blair’s famous embrace of Gaddafi in his tent in 2004 was said to have ushered in a new period of “rapprochement” with Western companies rushing to do business in the oil-rich African state, and Gaddafi’s abandonment of a nuclear deterrent apparently indicative of the new spirit of trust and cooperation.

Yet this image was largely a myth. Yes, sanctions were lifted and diplomatic relations restored; but this did not represent any newfound trust and friendship. Gaddafi himself never changed his opinion that the forces of old and new colonialism remained bitter enemies of African unity and independence, and for their part, the US, Britain and France continued to resent the assertiveness and independence of Libyan foreign policy under Gaddafi’s leadership. The African Oil Policy Initiative Group (AOPIG) – an elite US think tank comprising congressmen, military officers and energy industry lobbyists – warned in 2002 that the influence of “adversaries such as Libya” would only grow unless the US significantly increased its military presence on the continent. Yet, despite “rapprochement,” Gaddafi remained a staunch opponent of such a presence, as noted with anxiety in frequent diplomatic cables from the US Embassy. One, for example, from 2009, noted that “the presence of non-African military elements in Libya or elsewhere on the continent” was almost a “neuralgic issue” for Gaddafi. Another cable from 2008 quoted a pro-Western Libyan government official as saying that “there will be no real economic or political reform in Libya until al-Gaddafi passes from the political scene” which would “not happen while Gaddafi is alive,” hardly the image of a man bending to the will of the West. Gaddafi had clearly not been moved by the flattery towards Libya (or “appropriate deference” as another US Embassy cable put it) that was much in evidence during the period of “rapprochement.” Indeed, at the Arab League summit in March 2008, he warned the assembled heads of state that, following the execution of Saddam Hussein, a former “close friend” of the US, “in the future, it’s going to be your turn too…Even you, the friends of America – no, I will say we, we the friends of America – America may approve of our hanging one day.”

So much for a new period of trust and co-operation. Whilst business deals were being signed, Gaddafi remained implacably opposed to the US and European military presence on the continent (as well as leading the fight to reduce their economic presence) and understood well that this might cost him his life. The US too understood this, and despite their outward flattery, behind the scenes were worried and resentful.

Thus, the so-called rapprochement period was anything but. The US continued to remain hostile to the independent spirit of Libya – as evidenced most obviously by Gaddafi’s hostility to the presence of US and European military forces in Africa – and it now seems that they and the British used this period to prepare the ground for the war that eventually took place in 2011.

The US, for example, used their newfound access to Libyan officials to cultivate relations with those who would become their key local allies during the war. Leaked diplomatic cables show that pro-Western Libyan Justice Minister Mustafa Abdul-Jalil arranged covert meetings between US and Libyan government officials that bypassed the usual official channels and were therefore “under the radar” of the foreign ministry and central government. He was also able to speed up the prisoner release programme that led to the release of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group insurgents who ultimately acted as NATO’s shock troops during the 2011 war. The head of the LIFG – al-Qaeda’s FRANCHISE in Libya – eventually became head of Tripoli’s military council, whilst Abdul-Jalil himself became head of the “Transitional National Council,” that was installed by NATO following the fall of the Jamahiriya.

Another key figure groomed by the US in the years preceding the invasion, was Mahmoud Jibril, head of the National Economic Development Board from 2007, who arranged six US training programmes for Libyan diplomats, many of whom subsequently resigned and sided with the US and Britain once the rebellion and invasion got underway.

Finally, the security and intelligence co-operation that was an element of the “rapprochement” period was used to provide the CIA and MI6 with an unprecedented level of information about both Libyan security forces and opposition elements they could cultivate that would prove invaluable for the conduct of the war.

Thus rapprochement, whilst appearing to be an improvement in relations, may actually be a “long game” to lay the groundwork for naked aggression, by building up intelligence and sounding out possible collaborators, effectively building up a fifth column within the state itself. This is what the neo-conservatives in the US Congress opposing Obama’s “thaw” in Iranian relations apparently fail to understand. Thankfully, it is likely that the Iranians understand it perfectly well.

The Covert Origins of ISIS…and the long time planned plot against humanity


alfatah69:

The fact that the CIA was actively working to help the Libyan rebels topple Gaddafi was no secret, nor were the airstrikes that Obama ordered against the Libyan government. However, little was said about the identity or the ideological leanings of these Libyan rebels. Not surprising, considering the fact that the leader of the Libyan rebels later admitted that his fighters included Al-Qaeda linked jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq.

A NEW SCGNEWS REPORT

Evidence exposing who put ISIS in power,
and how it was done.

The Islamic militant group ISIS, formerly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recently rebranded as the so called Islamic State, is the stuff of nightmares. They are ruthless, fanatical, killers, on a mission, and that mission is to wipe out anyone and everyone, from any religion or belief system and to impose Shari’ah law. The mass executions, beheadings and even crucifixions that they are committing as they work towards this goal are flaunted like badges of pride, video taped and uploaded for the whole world to see. This is the new face of evil.

Would it interest you to know who helped these psychopaths rise to power? Would it interest you to know who armed them, funded them and trained them? Would it interest you to know why?

An Empire Without a Military Strategy for a Military Strategy Without an Empire


An Empire Without a Military Strategy for a Military Strategy Without an Empire

 

By Thierry Meyssan

On May 28th, President Obama delivered an important speech stating his strategic doctrine on the occasion of the graduation of cadets of the Military Academy at West Point. [1]

Not surprisingly, the President recalled that he kept his promise to repatriate US troops deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq, and to eliminate Osama bin Laden. But what he portrayed as a supposedly laudatory assessment is not one: the GIs returned exhausted from Afghanistan and have fled Iraq before being expelled by the popular resistance. The exorbitant cost of these expeditions, over 1,000 billion, has prevented the Pentagon from maintaining its arsenal. About the death of bin Laden, it is naught but a fairy tale: Osama Bin Laden had nothing to do with the attacks of September 11th and died of illness and was buried in December 2001, as has well certified the British MI6. [2]

One can only admire the US ability to continue this narration of an imaginary reality, however contradicted by solid evidence, and to always be echoed by the Atlanticist media.

In his speech, the president described his country as “the indispensable nation”, both militarily and economically the most powerful. Yet neither of these assertions is still true. On May 14th, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, acknowledged before the Atlantic Council that US armed forces would definitely be surpassed in 10 years if a huge upgrade effort were not made ​​right away [3] ; an unlikely effort given budgetary restrictions. The Pentagon notes that the gap in military research is probably irreversible. Russian and Chinese Military technology are now more developed than those of the United States. It is too late to recover. The apparent superiority of Washington holds only because its troops are the only ones deployed worldwide. It therefore exists in certain theaters of operation, but not against Russia, nor against China, which would win in World War. As for the economy, the majority of consumer goods consumed in the U.S. is made ​​in China.

On this spooky basis, in the words of the Washington Post referring only to the relative military weakness of the United States [4], President Obama announced that his country would not hesitate to intervene abroad when its direct interests are involved, but would use international coalitions to address more distant problems. He said that, unlike during the Cold War, Russia no longer posed an imminent danger, but that the main enemy is terrorism.

So the accession of the Crimea to Russia doesn’t matter. Washington will not fight against it though it describes it as an “annexation” and a grave breach of international law, not hesitating to compare President Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler.

Especially after 13 years of “war against terrorism”, Washington claims to have eliminated a few fanatics who composed the international leadership of Al Qaeda, but must now face a more serious problem : many affiliated al-Qaeda groups which have formed almost everywhere in the world.

This “war without end” has the advantage of authorizing everything. Presenting itself since 2001 as acting in self-defense, Washington has authorized itself to violate the sovereignty of other states in order to remove or bombard them, using blackmail at will. To continue this war, President Obama announced the creation of a “counterterrorism partnerships fund,” of up to $ 5 billion. It will aim to train security forces in allied states. Who can believe in such a program? Currently terrorists are trained in the more permanent camps of Al Qaeda, located in the Libyan desert country occupied by NATO. Meanwhile three Al Qaeda camps are installed in Şanlıurfa, Osmaniye and Karaman, Turkey, a NATO member [5] country.

Syrians remember the televised confessions of the Emir of Al- Nosra Front (affiliated to Al-Qaeda) who transported chemical missiles from a Turkish military base to Damascus Ghouta. According to this man, not only were the weapons provided to him by a member of the NATO army, but the order to use them under “false- flag” to justify the bombing of Syria by the United States came from the US.

13 years after the events of September 11, 2001, who can still believe that Al-Qaeda is the main enemy of the “indispensable nation”, when even Barack Obama described the elements affiliated with Al-Qaeda as “less capable” than their parent organisation in his speech at the national Defense University, May 28, 2013 ? [6]. He said that the danger had become relative and that the United States should no longer make it the priority.

About Syria, President Obama continued at West Point by stating intentions to “help the Syrian people stand up against a dictator who bombs and starves his own people” ( sic). That is why Washington will help “those who fight for the right of all Syrians to choose their own future” (read: not the Syrians themselves who vote to elect their president, but only those who are willing to collaborate with a colonial government made in NATO).

Moreover, why intervene only in Syria? Because “As the Syrian civil war spills across borders, the capacity of battle-hardened extremist groups to come after us only increases. ” In other words, after burning Syria, the United States could be affected by the fire they have lit.

“We will step up our efforts to support Syria’s neighbors — Jordan and Lebanon; Turkey and Iraq — as they contend with refugees and confront terrorists working across Syria’s borders. I will work with Congress to ramp up support for those in the Syrian opposition who offer the best alternative to terrorists and brutal dictators. And we will continue to coordinate with our friends and allies in Europe and the Arab World to push for a political resolution of this crisis, and to make sure that those countries and not just the United States are contributing their fair share to support the Syrian people,” he said.

In other words, the White House is having talks with Congress on how to support the personal ambitions of members of the National Coalition. According to press reports, Washington could provide military training in neighboring states and distribute better weapons. Only here’s the rub:

If Washington starts to train and arm Syrian collaborators, it will have to admit to not having done so on a large scale before and having used primarily foreign mercenaries as part of Al-Qaeda.

If 250,000 mercenary jihadists were unable to overthrow the Syrian government over the past three years, how will a few thousand Employees of Western colonization succeed?

Why would neighboring states, already engaged in a secret war, enter into an open war against Syria, with the risks involved for them?

Which more sophisticated weapons could be delivered to the employees of colonialism without the risk of their being used someday against other targets, including Israeli air superiority?

And last, but not least, knowing that all this has been discussed over the past three years, what new factor could lead one to believe that these isuues could find a solution today?

Obama’s speech is one of impotence : he boasts of having withdrawn his troops from Afghanistan and Iraq and killing a ghost that, for the past decade, still existed only in the tapes of Al-Jazeera. He announces he would fight the terrorism that everywhere he protects. He declares he will support the “Syrian opposition” more effectively, but immediately tunes into Congress – which could not see bombing the country during the chemical weapons crisis -, confident that it will limit itself to the minimum.

This speech is only a facade of verbiage trying to hide an irreversible decline. He stunned the audience which understood dreams of conquest are at an end. Against all odds, less than a quarter of the 1064 graduates of the Military Academy at West Point applauded the president, while the majority remained unmoved. The Empire is slowly dying.

Boast Jordanian officials that the forces of their own country was the first to enter the Libyan capital, Tripoli, and broke into “barrack-Aziziya,” the headquarters of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and the center of his leadership, which has now become a dumping ground for waste, that is to say thanks in the “liberation” of Libya along with the “rebels” The aircraft “NATO”.
We do not believe that these, and their counterparts Qataris and Emiratis and Saudis who participated NATO intervention military this, they expect that their embassies and others, will be exposed to the storming, and their ambassadors to the kidnapping, in the new Libya liberated, and they had hoped at the height of disinformation, be transformed into an oasis of democracy and prosperity, and the model in democracy, justice and respect for human rights. *****(were they dreaming or having nightmares? because their countries didn’t have any of the above but IN THE JAMAHIRYA WE DID! We had all that before their stupid invasion! WE WERE SECURE, PROSPEROUS, RESPECTED, WE HAD OUR OWN KIND OF OASIS OF DEMOCRACY, WE WERE A MODEL FOR THE REST OF THE MIDDLE EAST, WE HAD JUSTICE AND A HIGH RESPECT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS. While now we have exactly the opposite like their countries and worse, we are the LAUGHING STOCK AND LOSS OF IDENTITY FROM THE FEW BEING IGNORANT AND STUPID TO BELIEVE THAT WITH THIS INVASION THEY COULD MAKE IT BETTER. NOW WE HAVE A TERRORIST/DICTATORIAL NEW FREE LIBYA A PUPPET GOVERNMENT WHICH WITH RAPID STEPS HAS BANKRUPT LIBYA AND ALREADY HAS OVER ONE MILLION PEOPLE HOMELESS, TWO MILLION IN EXILE, OVER TEN THOUSAND PEOPLE IN SECRET PRISONS BEEN TORTURED, RAPED AND KILLED. SO I AM ASKING AGAIN WHAT KIND OF DREAMS/NIGHTMARES DID THEY HAVE IN PLANNING THIS INVASION?)
We agreed this morning (London time) on the news talking about the exposure Jordanian ambassador in Tripoli to attack at the hands of masked gunmen attacked his car and opened fire on the driver, and took him to an unknown location, which confounded the Jordanian government, and put them in an awkward position, which is that they think that their efforts in liberation of Libya will have immunity and ambassadors, and rewarded them with financial aid and the opening of labor markets to tens of thousands of its sons.
***
Mr. Abdullah Eagles Jordanian Prime Minister pointed out in front of the House of Representatives “to integration efforts among relevant agencies in both countries to secure the release of the kidnapped ambassador, and that this is a priority for the government and its agencies.”
It seems that Mr. Eagles lives on another planet is our planet, and belongs to another world is our world, he speaks about Libya as if it was Sweden or Switzerland, is an oasis of security, stability and its security forces are doing their job to the fullest, and to forget or forget, that the Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zidane was abducted from a bed in a hotel which is the most protection and safe in the capital, and forced in the end, of Mr. Zidane, to escape disavowal, to Germany survivors for his life of murder and lynching, either his successor Abdullah bending, which was asked to form the ministry has absorbed the lesson early, and withdrew from the job after a few days, following the exposure of his home, a defense minister, was assaulted and shot, and would not rule out or escaping surprised if the other is able to afford it.
Libya does not have the specifications state any relationship, and agree with Mr. Mahmoud Jibril, prime minister of former, and the “chief” neo-liberals, in saying that it is not a state even say it’s a failed or is failing, and characterization closest to the reality of it is the title the most prominent of the chaos in the worst sense.
We recommend Mr. Eagles said abbreviated way, and provides the same time and effort, and will immediately contact his Egyptian counterpart, who had been his country’s embassy to the storming similar in January (January) past where they were kidnapped five diplomats, including the ambassador, and was released after only two days.
Explain more and say this quick release came after Egyptian authorities released, and in a humiliating manner, for the leadership of the Libyan Islamic Shaaban gift nicknamed “Abu Ubaida, angular” Chairman of the Chamber of Tripoli rebels accused of bombing the building of Cairo Security Directorate.
Mr. Eagles government will have “an abomination” for the release of the Muslim League Muhammad Saeed alias “Mohammed the text” who is currently detained in Jordan on charges of belonging to “Al Qaeda” and the release of another group of Libyans and other Arabs arrested for the same offense “over the Pledge of Allegiance.”
Jordanian Ambassador hijacker Fawaz Eitan, decoding of God was captured, we must pray to God day and night, that he does not have the same fate as the Libyan prisoners had been tortured or abused during interrogation in basements Jordanian intelligence, so as not to be treated equally, because his captors, they are inevitably elements of groups Islamist militant, do not recognize the treaty “Vienna” in 1961, which provides for the protection of diplomats, and sets norms followed in securing their lives and facilitate their tasks, and  if they had heard of, let alone knowledge of its terms.
At the beginning of the launch “of the Libyan revolution,” I met Mr. Beji Caid Essebsi Tunisian political veteran and first prime minister in Tunisia after the ouster of President Ben Ali, he said to me that the biggest threat to Tunisia and its revolution is Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and his regime, and wished his fall quickly because the rest of Tunisia and the world whole, has achieved his wish, and most of that was to kill him and dragged in an atrocious manner.
A year later, while I was at the airport in Tunis prepared to leave for London, a handsome man in civilian clothes gave me the same talk as the airport security chief and invited me to a cup of coffee in his office, and it was during the meeting, that he complained of the threat that Libyan revolution and the threat to Tunisia, he and his colleagues are living a nightmare everyday named the next plane from Tripoli to Tunisia does not pass without a trip to find weapons and explosives at best drugs.
***
And don’t forget in this quick to whisper in the ear of Mr. Nasser Judeh, Foreign Minister of Jordan, who wants to go to the Security Council to condemn the kidnapping of this, he infuses the bladders are broken, and speaks the language of expression extinct can not be traded in a country like Libya, which does not know the law and its provisions .
The Security Council, which wants Mr. Judeh quality invoked does not have any role in Libya, although it is still under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, and assume greater responsibility for the disaster, it turned out the country when he gave the green light for NATO to intervene in, and turn it into the unfortunate situation experienced by the Currently, considered the worst in its history, with the blessing of the Arab League and its secretary general at the time, Mr. Amr Moussa.
Libya today without an identity, torn by tribal, regional, and militia rule, and dominated by fragmentation geographic, demographic, and the total lack of security, safety and basic services, and as if that wasn’t enough that more than half a million of its children have migrated to Tunisia while resorted similar number to Egypt.
We wish a quick solution to the crisis, the Jordanian ambassador was kidnapped, but compared to the past experience may not be the solution, but after the arrival of Mr. Judeh few words alone, or with a number of his comrades to Tripoli aboard on a private plane Jordanian honor and dignity.
Welcome again in the “new Libya”
