On October 20, 2011, the leader of the North African state of Libya was brutally assassinated in the city of Sirte. Col. Muammar Gaddafi had been leading a struggle to defend his country from a war of regime-change coordinated and financed by the United States and NATO.

Since the overthrow of the Jamahiriya system of government in Libya, the social conditions prevailing inside the country are by no means stable. Various factions, most of which were utilized as ground troops in the Pentagon-NATO aerial war between March 19 and Oct. 31 of 2011, remained locked in a mortal conflict for control over the oil-rich state.

Conflicting sources of political power backed up by armed militias exist in the two largest cities of Tripoli, the capital, and Benghazi, in the east, where the counter-revolution against Gaddafi began. Areas in the south of the country have armed themselves against the US-installed regimes in Tripoli and Benghazi often in sympathy with the previous system under the Jamahiriya.

The two regional states that participated in the imperialist-engineered war against Libya, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), have been carrying out periodic airstrikes against alleged “Islamist” strongholds in various locations in the east and west. Also renegade former Gen. Khalifa Hefter, a longtime Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) asset, has mounted a bid for power utilizing sophisticated weapons and airstrikes.

Oil production rising despite internal conflict

For several months during 2014, oil production in Libya was down considerably. Conflicts between various labor organizations in addition to clashes among the militias resulted in the decline of barrels-per-day extraction to almost nil.
A dispute over who could actually sell Libyan oil on the international market was eventually addressed by the US when it sent a naval warship to reclaim cargo traded by interests inside the country who were not endorsed by Washington. Subsequent efforts aimed at the resolution of the disagreements have still not cleared the way for a consistent boost in production.
Unrest has erupted again surrounding which political group claiming authority in Libya would control the proceeds from oil sales. Both the parties controlling the capital of Tripoli, who are often labeled as “Islamists,” and the “government in exile” in the eastern city of Tobruk say they are entitled to the revenue generated from the trade in oil.
With the decline in prices on the global market during October, the situation involving the struggle over the control of oil in Libya prompted the attention of the Wall Street Journal. Efforts by five Western countries designated by the United Nations to reach a political settlement in the Libyan quagmire has failed, and consequently, the major imperialist powers are concerned about the supply of oil and the role of Libya in the process.

“In a joint statement late Saturday, France, Italy, Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. said they supported the U.N.-sponsored peace talks and a cessation of hostilities,” noted the Wall Street Journal. “The five governments condemned the violence by Islamist group Ansar al-Shariah, voiced concern about the attacks of the renegade general and said they were ready to sanction those threatening Libya’s security.” (Oct. 19)

This same article went on to point out that “Libya is normally one of Europe’s largest oil suppliers, but disruptions since the fall of strongman Moammar Gadhafi in 2011 have reduced its contribution to the continent’s oil supply.” Therefore, even the publication of the international finance capital has to openly acknowledge that the Pentagon-NATO policy of regime-change in Libya has disrupted oil supplies to the European continent.

The Libya Dawn group, which is contesting control of the state with the ostensible moderate group led by Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thani, who called themselves the House of Representatives, sent their own oil minister, Mashallah al-Zawie, to Turkey to participate in an industry conference held in Istanbul. The rival group headed by al-Thani based in Tobruk dismissed the Central Bank director Sadiq Kabir and claims they have control of the revenue from oil sales.

Nonetheless, the Wall Street Journal reports that “officials at NOC (the state-owned National Oil Co.) and at the central bank subsidiary which receives payments from oil buyers said revenues had continued to flow to its Tripoli-based accounts. Mr. al-Kabir also remains in office, they said.”

Such confusion over which entity controls Libyan oil could very well hamper the country’s future production and exports projections. Libyan oil officials say production is at 850,000 barrels a day, marking an increase of 40,000 barrels compared with earlier in October, suggesting that some facilities have boosted their output. In contrast, operations at oil fields in eastern Libya have been interrupted by labor unrest led by workers seeking jobs at the facilities.

Imperialists continue proxy war in Libya

The present situation in Libya is the direct result of the war of regime-change led by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Pentagon and NATO during 2011. US policy is designed to overthrow all of the sovereign and anti-imperialist governments throughout Africa and the Middle East.

Consequently, the outcome of the current situation in the regions of North Africa and the Middle East will be critical in the future course of imperialist militarism worldwide. Obviously, these policies in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Syria and Libya have prompted massive destabilization of these societies, including the vast increase in the number of internally displaced persons and refugees.
Libya, which under the years of the Jamahiriya-Gaddafi rule was the most prosperous state in Africa, is now a major source of instability in the region. The response of aerial bombardments from Egypt and the UAE will only further the generalized sense of lawlessness and terror.
Only the Libyan people themselves, united around a political program of national unity, and genuine sovereignty will be able to reverse the current malaise. The plans suggested involving the direct intervention of thousands of NATO troops to Libya under the rubric of the United Nations would eventually result in greater anti-Western sentiments already prevalent throughout the country.
What the role of the US in Libya has proven is that Washington and Wall Street have no rational policy towards Africa and the Middle East. Their interventionist posture will only breed more anti-US consciousness and mass resistance to imperialist control.

Libya’s Lesson for Iran: Beware of Rapprochement


Libya’s Lesson for Iran: Beware of Rapprochement

 

By Dan Glazebrook

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 Supreme Court’s ruling does not affect the legitimacy of the election of the House of Representatives


The Supreme Court’s ruling does not affect the legitimacy of the election of the House of Representatives

 

عزة-المقهور-295x172

Ruseifa news - lawyer Azza Kamel oppressed February decision of the Committee set up by the former Libyan National Congress said amendments overturned on constitutional declaration of the Supreme Court that “the ruling of the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court does not affect the legitimacy of the House of Representatives.”

In its first response to the judgment oppressed added that “the status quo and the consequences of judgment in appeal No. 17 against the unconstitutionality of paragraph (11) of Article 30 of the amended constitutional declaration under the Seventh Amendment has nothing to do with the legitimacy of the Parliament (House of Representatives).”

The lawyer added that “the Supreme Court in its judgment did not cancel the Seventh Amendment to the Declaration, but canceled and only a single item from a (item 11), asking everyone to” return to constitutional amendments and the Declaration of the whole. “

She stressed that the oppressed, “the legitimacy of the House of Representatives depends on a package of legislation, the most important of Law No. 10 of 2014 on the election of the House of Representatives in the transitional phase, which was issued from the General National Congress (former parliament).”

It attributed lawyer legal opinion saying that “item 11, which the court ruled unconstitutional stipulates that works proposal in February to the Committee that the House of Representatives elected decisively the question of the head of state directly elected or indirectly system within a period of not more than forty-five days of his first hearing, consequently, this item is not about elections, new Council of Representatives at all. “

According to the oppressed, “the work of the February committee is divided into two parts: the first to do the constitutional amendments and the second proposal of election law, which was, introduced a proposed constitutional amendments first, who handed the Chairman of the Committee to the President of the General National Congress, a proposal which was released Accordingly seventh constitutional amendment specifically item 11 of it. “

She continued, “After that, the Commission and after the resignation of two of them to submit a proposed election law, which introduced a separate bill after the issuance of the seventh amendment has nothing to do with this amendment and therefore item 11, which abolished by the Supreme Court.”

Her “Based on the proposed (election proposal), the National Congress issued elected House of Representatives No. 10 Law for the year 2014 on 31 March 2014 and amended by Law No. 14 of 2014 ie after issuance of the amendment seventh Constitution on 11 March 2014, in the sense that the legality of the election of the Council are drawn from his election law based on Law No. 10 of 2014, which is still standing and true. “

She pointed out that “the intended proposal in February referred to in item 11 of the seventh amendment of the constitutional declaration is proposed only constitutional amendments put forward by the Commission in February, does not apply to the election of the House of Representatives No. 10 Act of 2014,” saying at the same time that the “rule unconstitutional item 11 of the Constitutional Declaration does not affect the legality of the House of Representatives, which elected its origin issued by the General Conference of the Libyan national law. “

And ruled that the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court in Tripoli on Thursday declared unconstitutional decisions, “committee in February” on amendments to the constitutional declaration and its decision to hold snap parliamentary elections.

The text of the court’s decision on the “unconstitutionality of paragraph 11 of the amended Article 30 of the Constitutional Declaration under the Seventh Amendment dated March 11 (March) 2014 and all the implications of it,” which means the invalidity of the parliamentary elections and then this decision is dissolved.

The words of the Supreme Court (s) of Representatives election rule does not affect the legitimacy of the commission in February Council controls Summary

الرصيفة الأخبارية – قالت المحامية عزة كامل المقهور مقرر لجنة فبراير التي شكلها المؤتمر الوطني الليبي السابق وأبطلت تعديلاتها على الإعلان الدستوري المحكمة العليا إن “حكم الدائرة الدستورية بالمحكمة العليا لا يمس شرعية مجلس النواب”.

وفي أول رد لها على الحكم أضافت المقهور أن “الوضع القائم وتبعات الحكم في الطعن رقم 17 بعدم دستورية الفقرة (11) من المادة 30 من الإعلان الدستوري المعدلة بموجب التعديل الدستوري السابع ليس له علاقة بشرعية البرلمان (مجلس النواب)”.

وأضافت المحامية أن “المحكمة العليا في حكمها الصادر لم تلغي التعديل السابع للإعلان الدستوري وإنما ألغت بندا وحيدا منه فقط وهو (البند 11)، مطالبة الجميع بـ”العودة للإعلان الدستوري بأكمله وتعديلاته”.

وأكدت المقهور أن “مشروعية مجلس النواب تعتمد على حزمة من التشريعات أهمها القانون رقم 10 لسنة 2014 بشأن انتخاب مجلس النواب في المرحلة الانتقالية الذي صدر من المؤتمر الوطني العام (البرلمان السابق)”.

وعللت المحامية رأيها القانوني قائلة إن “البند 11 الذي حكمت المحكمة بعدم دستوريته يقضي بأنه يعمل بمقترح لجنة فبراير على أن يقوم مجلس النواب المنتخب بحسم مسألة رئيس الدولة بنظام انتخاب مباشر أو غير مباشر خلال مدة لا تزيد عن خمسة وأربعين يوما من عقد أول جلسة له، بالتالي فإن ذلك البند لا يتعلق بانتخابات مجلس النواب الجديد مطلقاً”.

وبحسب المقهور فإن “عمل لجنة فبراير ينقسم إلى قسمين: الأول القيام بالتعديلات الدستورية والثاني تقديم مقترح بقانون الانتخاب، وهو ما كان، فقدمت مقترح تعديلاتها الدستورية أولا الذي سلم من رئيس اللجنة إلى رئيس المؤتمر الوطني العام وهو المقترح الذي صدر بناء عليه التعديل الدستوري السابع وتحديدا البند 11 منه”.

وتابعت “بعد ذلك، قامت اللجنة وبعد استقالة عضوين منها بتقديم مقترح بقانون الانتخاب وهو مشروع قانون منفصل قدم بعد صدور التعديل السابع ولا علاقة له بالتالي بهذا التعديل ولا بالبند 11 منه الذي ألغته المحكمة العليا”.

واستطردت قائلة “بناء على المقترح (مقترح الانتخابات) قام المؤتمر الوطني بإصدار قانون انتخاب مجلس النواب رقم 10 لسنة 2014 بتاريخ 31 مارس (آذار) 2014 وتعديله بالقانون رقم 14 لسنة 2014 أي بعد صدور التعديل الدستور السابع في 11 مارس (آذار) 2014، بمعنى أن مشروعية انتخاب المجلس مستمدة من قانون انتخابه استنادا للقانون رقم 10 لسنة 2014 الذي ما يزال قائما وصحيحا”.

وأشارت إلى أن “المقصود بمقترح فبراير المشار إليه في البند 11 من التعديل السابع للإعلان الدستوري هو المقترح بالتعديلات الدستورية فقط الذي تقدمت به لجنة فبراير، ولا يسري على قانون انتخاب مجلس النواب رقم 10 لسنة 2014″ مؤكدة في نفس الوقت أن “الحكم بعدم دستورية البند 11 من الإعلان الدستوري لا يمس مشروعية مجلس النواب الذي مصدره قانون انتخابه الصادر عن المؤتمر الوطني العام الليبي”.

وقضت الدائرة الدستورية بالمحكمة العليا بطرابلس يوم الخميس بعدم دستورية قرارات “لجنة فبراير” بشأن تعديلاتها على الإعلان الدستوري وقرارها بإجراء انتخابات برلمانية عاجلة.

ونص قرار المحكمة على “عدم دستورية الفقرة 11 من المادة 30 من الإعلان الدستوري المعدلة بموجب التعديل الدستوري السابع الصادر بتاريخ 11 مارس (آذار) 2014 وكافة الآثار المترتبة عنه”، ما يعني بطلان انتخابات البرلمان ومن ثم يعتبر بهذا القرار منحلاً.

A sick joke!: U.S. and allies threaten sanctions in Libya


A sick joke!: U.S. and allies threaten sanctions in Libya

Libya has been in a state of upheaval since its former leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown and killed three years ago. (AFP/File)

Libya has been in a state of upheaval since its former leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown and killed three years ago. (AFP/File)

In a joint statement issued late Saturday by the governments of the US, UK, Germany, France and Italy, the group threatened sanctions against violent parties in Libya if a ceasefire and negotiation process is not implemented. **(I would suggest that these governments mind their own business and leave Libya alone. We are cleaning their mess, so they have no right what so ever to even make a comment or implement or condemn or even advise. They were the ones who brought chaos to Libya and left us Libyans to collect the pieces.)

“We stand ready to use individual sanctions in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2174 against those who threaten the peace, stability or security of Libya or obstruct or undermine the political process,” the statement said. ****(You can shout and throw tantrums as much as you want and do as many sanctions as you want WE KNOW YOUR GAME AND YOU ARE NOT SCARING US, INTIMIDATING US OR BRAKING US…. WE ARE UNITED AND THAT IS SOMETHING YOU DO NOT WANT.)

The resolution was unanimously adopted by the five permanent members of the Security Council, and all 10 rotating members on August 27. It calls for an end to the fighting between the government and multiple rebel groups, an inclusive dialogue, and prior notice regarding weapons transfers.

In Saturday’s statement, the group said they “strongly condemn the ongoing violence in Libya and call for an immediate cessation of hostilities.

“We are particularly dismayed that after MEETINGS in Ghadames and Tripoli, parties have not respected calls for a ceasefire,” they noted. *****(You are dismayed? oh poor you, what a problem we have caused you!!!! its your proxies who did not respect the cease-fire, NOT US. BUT WE ARE NOT STUPID TO SIT THERE AND NOT TO SHOOT BACK….)

“We condemn the crimes of Ansar al-Sharia entities, and the ongoing violence in communities across Libya, including Tripoli and its environs. Libya’s hard-fought freedom is at risk if Libyan and international terrorist groups are allowed to use Libya as a safe haven,” the statement said. *****(They condemn their proxies & allies  really? Well if they want to cease-fire they should stop financing them so they would stop doing any further atrocities. We have the proof that they are the ones who are financing them through Qatar, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, some of the prisoners of Ansar Sharia confessed so who are they condemning again???? Libya did not fight for its freedom because it had its freedom with the Jamahiryia, you the west came along with your no-fly zone and you started bombing all the Libyan infrastructure, hospitals, mosques, innocent civilians and mostly children, the great man river, you bombed Libya to the stone age so that you the west could rebuild it by stealing our resources, you murdered in cold blood the president of the country and his son and showed it world-wide the gruesome murder, you helped the foreign mercenaries which you paid and trained to gain power the same way you are doing now in Iraq and Syria; so please explain to me which freedom did we fight? You wanted us to lay down and die and allow these terrorists that you so much condemn to become a government for the few like you have in your countries. So please when you talk about freedom be more respectful because from the moment you toppled Qaddafi our freedom stopped.)

“We are also concerned by (ex-military general) Khalifa Hifter’s attacks in Benghazi. We consider that Libya’s security challenges and the fight against terrorist organizations can only be sustainably addressed by regular armed forces under the control of a central authority, which is ACCOUNTABLE to a democratic and inclusive parliament,” the group affirmed.  *****(Your concern about your CIA SPY ASSET Haftar really???? When he tried to do the first coup de tat and failed with the money of USA/U.A.E/SAUDI ARABIA he took refuge at the house of the Ambassador Deborah Jones of the United States, he is doing your bidding YOU are playing in both sides  so please stop the hypocrisy we know your game. From where does Hafter gets his ammunition? planes? and the finance? but from you of course….  You have the audacity to tell us how to run our own country after the mess you left! What government are you talking about? The one that was not elected democratically? it was forced down our throats, well we showed you that its unacceptable and we have chosen democratically  our own government together with the Honourable tribes  which you call terrorists. This government is cleaning your mess.)

The five nations said they “fully support” the work of the UN’s Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG), Bernardino Leon, “and urge all parties to cooperate with his efforts.” Leon is the head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), which was established in 2011 “at the request of the Libyan authorities following six months of armed conflict to support the country’s new transitional authorities in their post-conflict efforts.

“After the Ghadames and Tripoli MEETINGS, negotiations should be pursued with goodwill and adopting inclusive policies, with the aim of finding an agreement on the location of the House of Representatives elected last June 25th and laying the foundations for a Government of National Unity,” the group said****(There is no way that the legal Government and the Honourable tribes will sit down at the same table with the terrorists and discuss of National Unity…. All the Tribes are united and all prisoners are free, so we have already a NATIONAL UNITY what remains is to kick out the FOREIGN MILITIAS who are your allies…)

“We agree that there is no military solution to the Libyan crisis,” they added. “We stress the importance that the international community acts in a united manner on Libya on the basis of the principles and understandings agreed at recent meetings, namely in New York and Madrid.” *****(Well your ultimate goal is to divide as into 3 pieces FRANCE GETS THE PART OF CYRINAICA, ENGLAND GETS THE PART OF TRIPOLITANIA AND YOU AMERICA GETS THE BEST PIECE FEZZAN. Stop trying to manipulate everything to your advantage we are sick and tired of your nagging and incompetence. Put this in your psychopathic minds WE WILL BE THE FIRST COUNTRY IN HISTORY THAT YOU DID NOT SUCCEED TO PUT YOUR PUPPET GOVERNMENT AND WE WILL KICK YOUR ASSES OUT OF OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE WE ARE UNITED.)

The statement also warned against interference from outside parties, and urged “all partners to refrain from actions which might exacerbate current divisions in order to let Libyans address the current crisis within the framework of UN-facilitated talks.” According to UN figures, some 287,000 people have had to flee due to the fighting in and around the cities of Benghazi and Tripoli, leading to a “critical” humanitarian situation. ****(Who are you to dictate us what to do? You should worry about the EBOLA virus that start hitting your countries and leave us alone to deal and clean the mess you left.)
