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.

The Covert Origins of ISIS

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?

Video: American ambassador we have issued a statement of support for the House of Representatives and we recognise the legitimacy of the elections


Video: American ambassador we have issued a statement of support for the House of Representatives and we recognise the legitimacy of the elections

Editors note: The woman not only she is arrogant but she doesn’t have a clue what is going on in Libya. The American foreign policy may recognise what ever they want but the fact is that the LIBYAN people do not recognise the House of Representatives. So for her to speak on the behalf of the extremist which her government recognise is absurd. She avoids calling Libya a failed state, if not a failed state then what is it? She has the audacity to talk about Qaddafi and saying after a dictatorship of 42 years its difficult to educate people to the WESTERN DICTATORSHIP oops sorry Democracy…. she avoids systematically to talk with the Honourable Tribes but talks with the Extremist War lords of Misurata and hold hands with them. Showing to us that AMERICA WANTS TO CREATE A CALIPHATE IN LIBYA. I will comment on each point of her interview.

Here is the interview:

Welcome Ambassador in this interview, let’s start with the latter to meet you, Mr. Prime Minister Abdullah Thani, which in turn met with leaders of AFRICOM, is this somehow reflects the support of the Government of the crease?

1 Ambassador Jones: Let me say that when he was Prime Minister Abdullah Thani here to participate in the African summit we held a series of meetings, not only with Africom and General Rodriguez, but also included national security adviser Susan Rice. It was at the crease because the opportunity is talking with the president at the dinner, and also met with Foreign Minister Kerry in this building. All of these discussions revolved around one axis, which is how the United States should support Libya? And help in building its institutions, especially the stability, security and support the government in order to secure its borders and to spread prosperity and support all the demands for which the Revolution, what revolution you mean the illegal war which you installed a puppet government? From what I know none of them gave any attention to Abduallah Thani he was just a puppet sitting in this summit doing sweet nothing.

2 President Obama himself spoke in an interview with the New York Times that the biggest failures in foreign policy is a failure to provide adequate support to build civil institutions, what can be done now?

Ambassador Jones: What he was referring to the president is the period that followed the overthrow of Gaddafi, and perhaps he should have done more, or if we can do more to help the Libyans to build the institutions of the state that they need. At that time I think there was tarry and slow to understand the reality and allow the transitional Governing Council  to play a leading role. Perhaps because the Libyans lack of experience – we understand this, as well as our allies in the West and even the Libyans themselves – they understand the complexities of the challenges and the nature of the stage and the sharp division who was born after the revolution. All of this was the need to address. Well come to the conviction that there are gaps deep and sharply divided over the future of Libya, and these divisions need to resolve through dialogue and negotiation. You don’t say? When you entered illegally by bombing us and assisting the extremists what did you think that you would walk in Libya install a government and everything would be ok? When you decided to enter illegally did you have a plan? No. Did you ever think in contacting the Honourable Tribes? No. The only thing you believed are the 200 thousand people in exile that Libya was ready for change but your affiliates didn’t check the facts, they did not visit the country to see what your lackeys are telling you is false, nonetheless you invade the country with your trained extremists who are not Libyans and you have this mess which you are unable to clean… so butt out. 

3 What can be submitted now of practical steps? Nothing

Ambassador Jones: Well, for civil society We have supported a number of programs aimed at training the Libyans and having them involved in the political process, but we understand that after forty-two or forty-three years of authoritarian rule, it is natural that the missing people for this kind of experience that we and others have, which are part of the political process in the United States. Let me say – as always remind the Libyan people – that democracy is not the end, it is not a paradise of Eden, it is a difficult passage corridor. In addition to all of these programs, of course, we assessed the security situation. It makes sense that the first thing we need is to build a fence around the garden so you can grow if we missed the fence it is easy for outsiders to enter the park and taking what they would like to, for this we need to build security services. I have spent a long time talking with the Prime Minister on this issue specifically. We talked together, how do we pay for these programs before, and build capabilities and capacities in Libya in order to stabilise the security? This process requires government action in addition to the role of civil society in a secure environment, and as you know there is a lot more that needs to be done in this regard. Out of the above they did nothing and no programs were available they were put on hold for 2015. Being arrogant is one thing, lying with a straight face shows that she and her country has no respect for the Libyan people.

4 Is Libya become a failed state? Yes

Ambassador Jones: I try to avoid using the term “failed state”, say it is a state in the process of growth, we issued a statement of support National Congress, which we now call the House of Representatives Sorry lady you must be living in another planet maybe Mars but not in this earth and not in this country called Libya. This support includes support for the committee writing the draft constitution, which is still working to accomplish, and we also know we have recognised the legitimacy (what legitimacy only 2% of the Libyans went to vote? again I beg the question are you taking drugs or are you living in another universe than ours?) of the elections and the need to support the Libyans to state institutions and participation in the political process. You can not win that did not participate in the elections. The profession of politics is difficult and harsh. For along with the military, without a doubt, this government was the first to recognise the difficulties facing the country, and they do not deny that a lot of the arrangements that have been taken in the wake of the revolution(really what revolution? the American revolution? because in Libya we did not see a revolution we saw an ILLEGAL TAKE OVER BY THE WEST) was temporary arrangements, such as allowing the proliferation of militias to provide security in those circumstances, but these arrangements have neglected the complexities arming rival militias and competing in the long run, which was fighting for the interests of the insurance, whether goods or commercial or ways to get to the airport, which was generating money for them, and this was the biggest challenge. Now we have to deprive (are you for real? deprive!??? the militias from their weapons? are you worried that the militias will ask for their money back while you will deprive them from their weapons? as your country is already bankrupt?) militias of their weapons, I do not mean necessarily stripped entirely of the weapon, as you know, the subject of carrying weapons in the United States is the subject of a polemic because of the constitutional rights that allow citizens to carry guns, has faced we have also problems with the militia at the birth of our nation, but is not entitled militias in Libya carrying Kalashnikovs, say that it must neutralize the militias and unify the weapons so you can play a positive role rather than playing the role of a messy or absurd, between militias led to harm to a lot of Libyans. But clearly there must be an immediate cease-fire so that we can address the political problems that are caused by the existence of the phenomenon of armed militias. You don’t say! You want to deprive them from their weapons but not all of it… so that you can use them again incase the puppet government does not do what you want…. really you think that all Libyans are so stupid….

5 Is Libya on the brink of civil war?

Ambassador Jones: I can not predict the unseen, because the events impose themselves, and if there is no framework to work through the strategy, it is easy to see how the events that are racing, and this leads to fragmentation and division in the absence of a strong central government. I say that the most important duties of the government, any government, in any place, whether in the United States or France or Egypt, to be able to create equal opportunities for citizens to share resources and revenue, and in the absence of these frameworks, the citizens would fight among themselves in the absence of power. Hence the appeal to the Libyan people, especially militias who are fighting now, to bow to the wishes and aspirations of the Libyan people, who clearly identified demands. They want a democratic process, want peace and do not aspire to control the militias on the state apparatus. Vital installations in need of protection by the central government, and should not be subject to the control of the militias, but the way to achieve this goal is not firing missiles at ports vital. And on the idea of ​​targeting vital installations such as airports exposed to the risk of prosecution on charges of breach of international law, which prohibits the targeting of civil aviation lines, on Libyans to respect international law. Dear Lady under your orders the Misurati militias do what they do, they maybe take it a little far but that is you’re doing when you have an office in Misurata they ask for your permission together with the warlord tribe leader of Misurata. You and Misurata hate so much Tripoli that you will do anything to bring it to the ground just because we have defied you and take orders from our Honourable tribes WHO ARE UNITED AND THEY DON’T WANT YOU IN OUR COUNTRY. WHY DON’T YOU INFORM THE PUBLIC THAT THE HONOURABLE TRIBES DENIED YOU TO VISIT THEM? So to punish us you went along with Misurata, Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and Ansar Sharia…. WE THE LIBYAN PEOPLE WILL DIE FIRST THAN ALLOW ANY AGGRESSOR GOVERN OUR COUNTRY, WE WILL NEVER ALLOW YOU TO MAKE LIBYA ANOTHER IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, SOMALIA OR A CALIPHATE OF EXTREMISTS SO THAT YOU CAN FORCE EUROPE TO GO TO WAR.

6 Ambassador Jones: If I could answer I’d be the next prime minister of Libya, but we talked with Ali Zeidan and others in the past, and we discussed the different ways of how to deal with this problem, and how to persuade the militias with this solution. As you know we have our own experience in this field. For example, we have the National Guard in the United States, and the Swiss National Guard there, where every soldier has a rifle in his home. Lady if we had a national Guard and every soldier had a rifle in his home its asking for trouble…. Just shows that you and your government have no clue about our country. My suggestion is that you pack up your bags and go home and let us Libyans CLEAN THE MESS YOU LEFT BEHIND.

Nadia Balbisi: But the Arab world is not Switzerland

Ambassador Jones: Yes, but people are people, and we must find ways to rehabilitate the militias and the creation of job opportunities for them and functions, and to make them responsible citizens under the sovereignty of the state, and this will not be by force. We are working with the Libyans and our partners in Britain, Italy and the Turks and the French also to build security institutions and the establishment of the army and the police are able to adjust the security of the state so that it can extend its sovereignty. The concept of sovereignty is that the state monopoly on military force. In modern times there are many models for this, but in a tribal society like Libya, there must be a compromise solution on the militias through agreement ensures delivered or placed under government control. Without doubt, the border should be monitored, as you know, to Libya a long border and there is no mechanism to monitor the whole, but allow this border entry of weapons like goods, and these are the challenges we face, we and our European partners, as we work to create a mechanism to control the border, and this will difficult and extraordinary challenge. NOW YOU ARE LYING THROUGH YOUR TEETH…. NOTHING OF THE ABOVE HAS EVER HAPPENED IN THE LAST THREE YEARS…. AND I DO NOT THINK ITS GOING TO BEGIN NOW…. WE USED TO HAVE A SOVEREIGN NATION TILL YOU DECIDED TO DESTROY IT. WHAT DO YOUR PARTNERS KNOW ABOUT LIBYA NOTHING…. YOU CAN NOT REHABILITATE THE MILITIAS ONCE THEY HAVE SEEN THE POWER THEY HAVE IN THEIR HANDS… STEALING, RAPPING, KIDNAPPING AND KILLING…. ARE YOU KIDDING? THEY WILL NEVER GIVE UP WHEN THEY CAN COLLECT MILLIONS OF $ FOR ALL THE ABOVE… 

7 Problem facing Libya is the smuggling of weapons across the border and access to armed jihadist groups in the Sinai, Mali, What help do you offer to those countries, especially Egypt

Ambassador Jones: Without a doubt our ancient relationship with Egypt dating back to decades-long. In fact, are more than decades, dating back to era of the American Civil War, where the army set up the first American military institute in Cairo, and I think that many people are unaware of this information. We have common interests, of course, the concerned collectively we share it with neighbors Libya about the risk of penetrating the border, where allowing terrorist movements to build bases and use Libya as a base for operations threatens through which the rest of the region, and we are working with the Europeans as well as to prevent breakthroughs across the border. Without a doubt, we believe the importance of maintaining a successful transition in Tunisia, for example, and believe in the need to maintain the security of Egypt, and all countries in the region, so we are discussing these matters with the Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, when attending the African Summit. Assistant Secretary of State Anne Patterson held a meeting devoted to the neighbors of Libya, where they discussed this matter, and concern about the border issue. In fact, Foreign Minister Mohammed Abdulaziz provide ideas about security cooperation. Egypt, which play a political role also provided ideas and dubbed Operation Tunisia, where he was the first meeting there a few months ago. Without a doubt there is great concern about the situation in Libya, so we may see a multiplicity of paths and ideas, and even envoys in order to secure a cease-fire the first place, and this is a preliminary step, because we will not be able to negotiate or support institutions that Libya needs to support her as long as the security situation unstable. Personally, I will be traveling there. As you know we had to evacuate our embassy because of its geographical location near the areas of fighting. The headquarters of the interim will be in Malta, and from there I will go to Libya to numerous visits so that we can return permanently to the embassy in Tripoli, and in spite of this are still in constant contact, and I’m talking on a daily basis with the Libyan government and political leaders Libyans and members of civic organizations and ordinary citizens. I have  22 thousand people who follow me on Twitter and you can follow me under the name of Ambassador Debra. Yes right the 22 thousand people who are following you are dual citizens who told you and your government to invade Libya. As for the foreign minister of Libya he is a Muslim Brotherhood which is not accepted by the Libyan people so is the Prime Minister which his house in Tripoli was burned 2 days ago and he had to be displaced like everybody else…. You say you talk every day with the government which one? The one in Tobruk or the one that has been dismantled in Tripoli? or are you talking with the Misurata militia and you think they are they government now? Which political leaders? Do you mean the terrorist Abulhakim Belhaj? or the Muslim Brotherhood, Ansar Sharia, Al Qaeda or Daash? You will go back to Tripoli to what? your embassy has been burnt down by the Mesurati militia warlords that you believe are your friends. LADY YOU CAN NEVER BE FRIENDS WITH A LIBYAN THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BY NOW, WE SHOWED OUR APPRECIATION TOWARDS YOUR GOVERNMENT SINCE OUR FIRST INDEPENDENCE, THEN WITH KING IDRIS THAT HE PLANNED A REVOLUTION TO GET RID OF YOU BUT YOU CAUGHT IT IN TIME AND YOU INSTALLED QADDAFI WHICH IN RETURN HE KICKED YOUR ASSES OUT OF LIBYA WELL MOST OF IT YOU HAD ONLY ONE SMALL BASE IN CONNECTION WITH THE CIA. YOU STILL DIDNT GET YOUR LESSON SO YOU TRIED TO TOPPLE QADDAFI AND INSTALL AGAIN SOMETHING THAT YOU HAD NO IDEA WHAT THE OUTCOME WOULD BE… AND HERE WE ARE AGAIN FACING THE SAME PROBLEM. NOW YOU & YOUR GOVERNMENT TOGETHER WITH EUROPE THINK THAT YOU CAN TAME US….. WELL I AM SORRY TO INFORM YOU, THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN! WE ARE NOT THE IRAQI’S, AFGHANIS, SOMALIANS OR SUDANESE… OUR RACE AND TRIBES ARE A DIFFERENT KIND, WE HAVE BEEN HERE IN LIBYA LONGER THAN YOU HAVE BEEN AN EMPIRE…. WE HAVE OUTLIVED ALL EMPIRES WHO TRIED TO DESTROY US AND WE ARE STILL STANDING ALTHOUGH WE ARE A HANDFULL OF PEOPLE WE ARE ONE OF KIND…. AND  VERY STUBBORN PEOPLE WHO DON’T GIVE A RATS ASS WHAT YOU THINK OF US. WE WILL DIE FIRST THAN ALLOW YOU TO COLONIZE US.

8 Is there a specific offer of military aid to Egypt or Tunisia?

Ambassador Jones: For military aid, as you know, we have signed a letter with the Prime Minister from which to train Libyan army and we do the training currently outside of Libya, and we have many other programs similar in order to enhance their abilities, and in order to meet the challenges of a special nature, such as the training of special units , and we have this program outside of Libya. I hope when the time comes and the security situation improves training process that we are inside Libya. For the border, which is more challenging and the reality of the European Union is leading in this area. Long border. United States also has experience of this, and are not necessarily successful. We understand the length of the border, as you know, we are fortunate for our border with Canada because the climate is cool, I’m joking, but if we went back to the subject of the Libyan border, there must be a clear strategy and cooperation between the Office of the Prime Minister and the ministers themselves and the House of Representatives, which reflects the wishes of the people. Absent such a strategy as long as we can not move forward, so we fully believe that it is necessary to move away from the fighting and focus on the game of politics and the democratic process and respect for the law, and more importantly, this is the path. Yes an agreement was signed with Zeidan who has resigned, yes the training took place in Bulgaria, but nothing came out of it. In case she has forgotten in America since Bush there are no borders between Canada and Mexico although they try to keep it under wraps. So she has no idea of our borders…… Even the Jamahiryia government had a problem with the borders…. so I am waiting to see how she is going to handle it….

9 Some people believe there is a similarity between the organization Daash in Iraq and Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, where the, United States considers them as terrorist organizations, will the United States be directed to air strikes in Libya as it did in Iraq?

Ambassador Jones: the risk that the mix of all these cases together. I want to say that what that in Iraq the Daash from killings and slaughter and terrorize civilians and minorities such as the Yezidis make defining the framework of our military mission in Iraq is clear, because of the danger posed by the organization on our representatives in the consulates and programs that support the Iraqis. I think that the announcement Daash stay succession requires attention internationally and regionally, and requires ordinary citizens to stand Bugehm, and the choice of frameworks governmental legal action through which a be based on respect for freedom of expression and political pluralism and security under the auspices of international law, or loyalty to the separatist movement is responsible says my loyalty is to the law only. I want to say that Ansar al-Sharia is different from Daash Without a doubt, we are categorized as a terrorist organization and there are those who disagree with us are in this category. I hate to repeat myself but! has she seen what the Ansar al Sharia has done lately and for that matter in the last 3 years? I know she & her government like them (it was the same group who protected the late Ambassador Stevens, just saying!) but that doesn’t mean that they are not similar to Daash which by the way we have them in Libya and are controlled by Abdulhakim Belhaj in case she has forgotten.

10. There are reports of the disappearance of planes from Libya and the possibility of their use by al-Qaeda in Morocco style attacks of September atheist in the neighbouring countries, what is the validity of these reports?

Ambassador Jones: I have not seen this report are you talking about, but the rockets fired on the eighteenth of August despite the fact that the Libyan army espoused We realize that the Libyan National Army does not possess such capabilities and are incorrect statements. I do not think that the rockets fired by the Libyans and the Libyan army, they lack the capabilities. We look closely at this matter seriously, because this kind of escalation will face escalating from the other side, and as we saw during the hours of the other side fired air-to-air on board the carts on residential areas, in fact, had not seen devastation like this even in the days of the revolution, did not suffer from before from casualties or damage, and there were dead perhaps five or six. Violence is not the solution. Sometimes I do not exclude the government’s need to respond to the military, but in this case, violence is not the solution. She must be taking something most probably her doctor prescribed her some uppers otherwise its incoherent in what she is talking about… they were not only 5 or 6 dead…. they were a lot more dead civilians and she does not want to confirm the fact that the MILITIAS WHO HAVE JOINED MISURATA HAVE MASSACRED A LOT OF CIVILIANS.

11 You had to vacate the embassy and go by road to the border to reach Tunisia, Tell us about the journey and whether you were afraid from any attack to the convoy subjected from the militia? Stupid question! they had the HAWKS from air there was no way anyone would dare attack them….

Ambassador Jones: Let me say that the closure of the embassy and evacuate staff, including the self hurts. We raised the flag just a month before the eviction process and we were on the verge of opening the consulate for the issuance of visas, but the security situation did not allow us. As you know, my responsibility first and last is to protect employees and the Americans working in Libya, has been contacted by many Americans who have not been able to go to the embassy because of the seriousness of the security situation around, so you must think of some other way to evacuate them. It was a process of traveling across the mainland interesting, and avoided the coastal roads. Tunisia has provided us with massive aid through the National Guard, and also there was an American fighter planes flown accompany us to make sure that were  not exposed to any attack. In fact, some Libyans told me that the presence of accompanying aircraft is the solution I figured I laugh that we can not put the F 16-24 hours a day, there is an international law entails under the Vienna Convention, which allows us to protect our diplomatic missions, and this is what we have done. We hope for a quick return of Libya. Something that Ms Deboorah (that’s how the Tribe leaders call her),does not realise is we don’t care about any Convention or International law. Her country proved to us that there is no law or international law when it concerned the invasion of Libya in 2011, so why the heck should we care now….? At the time when we needed the Geneva convention, the international law for attacking a sovereign country they didn’t stand in our side on the contrary they stood by the illegal war and nobody talks about the Genocide that was done to the black Libyans. No Convention or international has condemned the war done to us in 2011. So why Libyans should care about the International laws and Conventions or whatever they want to call it….

12: Finally: When are you going back to Libya to resume your work?

I can not predict the full return of the embassy staff. For security reasons I can not quite set the date, but I can say that I will return to Libya, the onset of the next month, or perhaps sooner, and this promise. Don’t make promises you can not keep lady, it’s not that easy as you think.. you may have your F16 and your Hawks but we don’t care we can handle you one way or the other.

US Furious After Source Of “Mystery” Libya Bombing Raids Revealed


US Furious After Source Of “Mystery” Libya Bombing Raids Revealed

by Tyler Durde

Over the past week a new geopolitical mystery emerged: an “unknown” party was launching airstrikes against Libya, which is already reeling in its latest political crisis where headlines such as this have become the norm:

  • MILITIA MEN SET HOUSE OF LIBYAN PM THENI ABLAZE: ARABIYA

  • LIBYA’S NEIGHBOURS AGREE NOT TO INTERVENE IN LIBYAN AFFAIRS, CALL FOR NATIONAL DIALOGUE

The strikes puzzled all media outlets, including Reuters which just over the weekend reported that “Unidentified war planes attacked positions of an armed faction in the Libyan capital Tripoli on SATURDAY, residents and local media said. Local channel al-Nabaa said the planes had attacked four positions of the Operation Dawn, an umbrella of Islamist-leaning forces from Misrata which has been trying to expel brigades from Zintan, also located in western Libya.” This follows a similar report when on Monday, the government said unknown fighter jets had bombed positions from armed factions in Tripoli, an attack claimed by a renegade general in Benghazi.

Turns out the renegade general was lying, and merely trying to take CREDIT for another party’s intervention. That party, or rather, parties has been revealed as Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, which as the NYT reports, “have secretly teamed up to launch airstrikes against Islamist-allied militias battling for control of Tripoli, Libya, four senior American officials said, in a major escalation between the supporters and opponents of political Islam.”

libya UAE_0

But what is surprising is not the intervention: after all, hardly a day passes now when there isn’t some small to medium political invasion taking place somewhere, in a world in which newsflow no longer affects anything. It is that both countries decided to roundly ignore advising the one country which previously had made it quite clear it has explicit national INTERESTS in Libya: the United States.

The United States, the officials said, was caught by surprise: Egypt and the Emirates, both close allies and military PARTNERS, acted without informing Washington or seeking its consent, leaving the Obama administration on the sidelines.

It gets worse: Egyptian officials explicitly denied the operation to American diplomats, the officials said. It is almost as if the theme of ignoring and/or mocking US superpower status exhibited most recently by both China and Russia, is gradually SPREADING to even the more “banana” republics around the world. Because while one can debate the pros and cons of any previous administration, it is very much improbably that any regime, especially ones as close to the US as the UAE, and to a lesser extent Egypt, would have conducted such military missions without preclearing with the Pentagon first.

So now that the “mysterious” owners of the punitive bombing raids has been revealed, the next question is: why? The answer is simple – to keep Islamists in check. And since the US can no longer be relied on to do the bidding of formerly key petrodollar allies, the UAE decided to take the law into its own hands.

The strikes are another high-risk and destabilizing salvo unleashed in a struggle for power that has broken out across the region in the aftermath of the Arab Spring revolts, pitting old-line Arab autocrats against Islamists. Since the military ouster of the Islamist president in Egypt one year ago, the new Egyptian government, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have formed a bloc exerting influence in countries around the region to rollback what they see as a competing threat from Islamists. Arrayed against them are the Islamist movements, including the Muslim Brotherhood, backed by friendly governments in Turkey and Qatar, that sprang forward amid the Arab spring revolts.

And while “old-line Arab autocrats” may see the military invasion as justified (they can simply point to what the US is doing in Iraq), that doesn’t mean that the US is happy in being ignored. In fact, quite the contrary: the US is “fuming” (perhaps because it is not the one conducting the airstrikes?)

Libya is the latest, and hottest, battleground. Several officials said that United States diplomats were fuming about the airstrikes, believing they could further inflame the Libyan conflict at a time when the United Nations and Western powers are seeking a peaceful resolution.

“We don’t see this as constructive at all,” said one senior American official.

The U.A.E. has not commented directly on the strikes. But on Monday an Emirati state newspaper printed a statement from Anwar Gargash, minister of state for foreign affairs, CALLING questions about an Emirati role “an escape” from the recent election that he suggested showed a desire for “stability” and a rejection of the Islamists. The allegations about the U.A.E. role, he said, came from a group who “wanted to use the cloak of religion to achieve its political objectives,” and “the people discovered its lies and failures.”

Most important, however, is that as the NYT notes, this latest escalation in direct political intervention in a sovereign state, means the middle-east is no longer a playground for proxy wars: after all, who needs to beat around the bush when one can directly bomb a proximal country without fears of repirsals by the international community, as Abu Dhabi and Cairo have done:

Officials said that the government of Qatar has already provided weapons and support to the Islamist aligned forces inside Libya, so the new strikes represent a shift from proxy wars —where regional powers playout their agendas through local allies —to direct involvement.

All of this ignores whether or not the strikes have actually achieved their objective of halting the militants’ progress. They haven’t.

The strikes have also proved counterproductive so-far: the Islamist militias fighting for control of Tripoli successfully seized its airport the night after they were hit with the second round of strikes.

American officials said Egypt had provided bases for the launch of the strikes. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt and other officials have issued vigorous but carefully worded public statements denying any direct involvement inside Libya by Egyptian forces. In private, officials said, their denials had been more thorough.

American officials said the success of that earlier raid may have emboldened Egypt and the U.A.E. to think they could carry off the airstrikes without detection. Or the brazenness of the attack may reflect the vehemence of their determination to hold back or stamp out political Islam.

The biggest irony in all of this is that, just like in the case of ISIS, the U.A.E. is said to have one of the most effective air forces in the region, and is now using it to engage its own enemies directly, all of which is possible excluslively thanks to American aid and training.

Which means that at this point one can start the countdown until the US, seemingly in attempt to halt the progress of another ascendent regional hegemon, will now arm the very Islamists that it was backing in Egypt before the whole Morsi fiasco, in the process making even more enemies, while the rest of the world awaits as the latest batch of weapons are used either against US INTERESTS in the region, or, as ISIS has shown, against the US itself.

Clearly, however, what is needed, is even more US intervention in a region which is rapidly becoming nothing but rubble thanks to US weaponized “assistance and training”, which benefits nobody except a few US military/industrial conglomerates, and the global money-laundering banking consortium of course.

A VERY DANGEROUS MAN IS COMING TO LIBYA HIS NAME BERNARDINO LEON


A VERY DANGEROUS MAN IS COMING TO LIBYA HIS NAME BERNARDINO LEON

Bernardino León: “The EU wants to militarily support the Syrian rebels, but the weapons turn against us”

Posted: 02/05/2013 21:20 BST Updated: 02/05/2013 21:20 BST

The thousands of secret documents leaked by Wikileaks US repaired no praise when describing Bernardino León (Málaga, 1964). USA dubbed him “golden boy” of the government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and ventured that his career would take “far beyond where it is now.” Then he was the principal adviser to the president on foreign policy and today’s special representative of the European Union for the Southern Mediterranean and

Arab Spring that just will not bloom.

Two and half years later, Egypt lives on the edge, with a battered economy, high debt, low and tourism to survive an outstanding loan from the International Monetary Fund hours. The country, as in Tunisia, Islamism and grow governs the voices calling for restricting the rights of women or freedom of the press. Syria remains a tinderbox and other regimes resolve the dissatisfaction with the necessary concessions to perpetuate power.

Leon, waiting to be renovated in office in June, facing the situation calmly. The special representative, who runs marathons, believe in almost everything, even in the Arab Spring, perseverance is the key to success.

They’ve spent two and a half the outbreak of the Arab Spring years. Can you say who has spent a great feast to a tough hangover?

As Europeans, we are required to analyze it from a historical perspective. We know that transitions last long and in some European countries have not yet been completed. Pretender finding results very quickly and, above all, link their lack of real will to democracy is a huge mistake. I think the process continues to meet its logical steps. The Islamists are not building dictatorships and excluding others.

The Arab Spring – follows an Islamist winter?

They just finished the transition phases linked to the previous regimes and now we live in a completely logical process when you consider that this revolution did groups with a vision of politics and very different society. Now the Islamists have won in Tunisia and Egypt. There is polarization and instability is normal but in the end, what matters is an agreement between Islamists and liberals. In Tunisia, after a very difficult time after the Chokri Belaid murder was a moment of great tension. However, it has formed a coalition government. They have even gone more games than the previous.

That is, that the rise of Islam is not a risk but an unavoidable stage.

We are accustomed to see Islam as a threat, but not per se to be a hazard. We tend to confuse Islam with fundamentalism and jihadism. But governs Islam in Turkey and the country has proven to be the most pro-European reformers of the past decades.

They’re different countries makings. In the case of Turkey has always outweighed the influence and legacy of Atatürk, the father of the country and its secularism.

Ataturk and Habib Bourguiba [president of Tunisia between 1957 and 1977] have many similarities. The role of women in Tunisia is unmatched in other Mediterranean countries. In short, we know that Islam is not the problem. There are different types of Islam by country.

They will make mistakes. We are seeing and is common in such countries.

‘In Egypt there are fewer than Hosni Mubarak parliamentary and there are voices that criticize that there are pressures to restrict certain rights that existed before. Against Mubarak life was better?

No. The leaders of Islamist movements in Tunisia and Egypt have insisted that there will be no turning back. The gains for women are collective achievements and country. We’ve heard of Rachid Ghannouchi, the Tunisian Islamist leader. It is true that in the Egypt of Mubarak timid changes occurred. His wife, Suzanne Mubarak led a campaign against female genital mutilation.

Precisely Salafist groups now claim mutilation.

Salafism is a difficult qualifying as a political movement and the distances between them and the Islamists are enormous. Even within Salafism we are seeing big changes. Just before the revolution leaders were very rough, with very basic speeches, and in recent months have come a long way. When they commented to the IMF loan to Egypt I was told that “the Koran says that necessity makes the unacceptable acceptable.”

Very pragmatic.

Right. They begin to understand that politics is the art of the possible and you can not work on the basis of unrealistic principles. Islamist governments know they have to make virtue of necessity. Your credibility depends on foreign affairs as progress in women’s rights.

CAN THE ECONOMIC CRISIS TRANSITION TO THWARTING DEMOCRACY?

‘The Arab Spring was born not only as a requirement of democracy, but to improve the standard of living. Does the economic instability threatens political transitions?

Revolutions settled around dignity not only understood from the political arena. Egypt is now living a very difficult time, with most of the population in poverty, in unacceptable conditions, work without any protection. Investment has fallen and tourism. The situation has solutions that work for us immediately. The IMF is negotiating an agreement but not yet closed.

-What will happen it not?

Failure to reach an agreement with the IMF soon, which it will be an important opportunity for Europe and USA strengthen their investment in the country condition, the situation will be very difficult. In Egypt no reserves left. It is resisting because it has had a emergency loan of 3,000 million Qatar and Libya 2,000 million. The budget deficit will exceed 12,000 million and debt to energy companies is 9,000 million. Or we find a solution in a few weeks or there is a real risk that the economic problems to affect the political transition.

- Political and economic instability slows the spread of revolution to other countries, such as the Gulf monarchies? Stated another way, the experience of Tunisia and Egypt slows monarchies concessions to their citizens and avoid demands of society?

They are two different phenomena. Not the fear of instability which slows societies that have a thirst for freedom. We know that in Libya and Syria people took to the streets against regimes that had no scruples and commit savage acts. It is not that fear that stops them. But I do not think we can talk of contagion to countries in the Gulf. Except in the case of Yemen, who is a tribal society, the only country where there has been conflict in Bahrain, for problem which came back.

That is, the Arab Spring has consolidated only where there has already been riots, no more travel.

Has a long journey. Egypt has a key that can open or close a door. Tunisia also, but it is a very special case, because it is known as the Switzerland or Singapore of the Mediterranean, with unique characteristics. If a functioning democracy is consolidated in Egypt, I am convinced that we will gradually changes in all Mediterranean countries.

When? It depends on how long it takes Egypt to reverse the key. But once you do, it will be irreversible.

SYRIA: ARM THE REBELS YES, BUT HOW?

-What The EU and USA are unable to overthrow Bashar Al Assad, who massacres his people, which says on its ability to accompany transitions?

Syria is a very special country in which there are more than 20 minorities. We are not only witnessing a conflict between those who want democracy and they do not want, but the actors choose to support one side or another depending on future consequences. Decisions have to be taken with extreme caution, because there are close to Al Qaeda elements that make us all think twice. Many have memories of Afghanistan, where he supported the

Taliban. We have made mistakes in the past, supporting Mubarak, Ben Ali, Muammar Gaddafi. That mistake we are not committed in the Syrian case.

‘In March, the EU showed its division between those who wanted to arm the rebels and those who do not.

If the lowest common denominator in the EU does not serve to advance Syria, where 27 have tried to go beyond not have agreed.

Everyone would like to spend the economic and political opposition to military support, to help tip the balance in favor of supporting the rebels. At the same time, everyone wants to ensure that these weapons are paid with the money of our citizens do not end up turning against them. It is necessary that these weapons will ever be good hands to fight for truth and freedom democrtacia and are not elements that reinforce or elemenos of jihadists and Al Qaeda is a threat to Europe. Cyprus, Bulgaria and Greece are very close to

Syria.

- Arming the rebels is not the solution now. It’s not what but how I care at this time.

“SPAIN LIVE A CRISIS OF VALUES, MORALS CASI”

Spain -How seen in the distance?

The situation is difficult. We say that the situation will improve in 2014 or 2016 as if the crisis were only economic. It is, but also politics, values , almost moral. The trouble is that finding, but one does not see action with the depth and ambition needed by the whole of society and institutions. The perspective that gives you exposure to areas where everyone is involved, where a vehemence for solutions means you can not be optimistic.

How do you see the protest movements emerged in Spain and disaffection of the policy?

They are a logical answer. My own children are in that dynamic. It is a rejection of politicians who seem to engage in defending formulas always like things have not changed. I’m not worth the view that everything that has to do with politics is bad, because politics is nothing more than finding solutions. These movements are on the street are also political, but not enough to reject it. From politics to look for solutions in which everyone must get involved.

‘The corruption in countries like Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, much of the carried resources to accompany a successful transition. Did he think the Corruption in Spain was so ingrained? Did you know?

I had no idea. It has been one of the biggest blows throughout this stage. It’s terrible, a big disappointment. Together, we must transform a model that goes beyond the legal or political. Have to focus on earlier stages as the field of education. A society with corruption, which does not take into account other values is a society that has no future.

- Europe is a part of his career, is he back from exile?

The question contains an assessment we make many times. When you come called black men, when it comes to giving sovereignty to Europe … we talk about Europe as alien, but it’s not. We are Europe. Spain is a huge part of it, so I, being Andalusian or Malaga, I am one of those realities. Many solutions involve the EU. The biggest challenge facing Europe is Spain and southern Mediterranean. That does not mean they do not ponder, does not take me that no part of the reflection and debate.
