May 24 Warplanes from Libya’s official government attacked a ship off the Libyan port of Sirte on Sunday, the air force commander said.

It was the third confirmed strike by the internationally recognized government on oil tankers, part of a conflict between competing administrations and parliaments allied to armed factions fighting for control of the country four years after the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi.

The recognized premier Abdullah al-Thinni has been working out of the east since losing the capital Tripoli in August last year to a rival faction. Both sides have been attacking each other with warplanes and thanks to loose alliances with former anti-Gaddafi rebels have also been fighting on several fronts on the land.

“Our jets warned an unflagged ship off Sirte city, but it ignored the warning,” Saqer al-Joroushi told Reuters. “We gave it a chance to evaluate the situation, then our fighting jets attacked the ship because it was unloading fighters and weapons,” he added.

“The ship now is on fire. We are in war and we do not accept any security breaches, whether by land, air or sea,” Jourushi added.

Mohamed El Harari, a spokesman for Tripoli-based state oil firm NOC, said the Libyan tanker Anwar Afriqya owned by NOC had been carrying gasoil for Sirte’s power plant. Another oil industry official said the size of the cargo was 25,000 tonnes. ***Yes that is the excuse Tripoli gave….

A port worker said there had been two attacks on the tanker docked outside the port. First a plane had fired rockets at the tanker’s cockpit and crew’s cabins, he said. “Then the plane attacked again with guns.”

Sirte’s power plant on the western outskirts is controlled by forces loyal to Tripoli. The rest of the city has fallen into the hands of Islamic State which has exploited a security vacuum.

The eastern government had already attacked in January a Greek-operated tanker docking at Derna, killing two seamen and accusing the shipper of sending weapons. NOC had said the tanker was only carrying heavy fuel oil for a power plant.

Two weeks ago forces loyal to the official government shelled a Turkish ship off the Libyan coast after it was warned not to approach. One crew member was killed in what Turkey described as a “contemptible attack”.

Libya without peace


Libya without peace

At the roar of the cannon we had to wave our flag in a foreign land, not for the success of the Italian genius that to look good is nothing else except the inventiveness of the poor. And against a defenseless nation whose army could not even compete with the Italian.

Tripoli, beautiful land of love, sweet comes to you this my song! The flag be flown in your towers at the roar of the cannon!

So sang Italy in the early twentieth century, when she imagined herself being something of important and instead she picked up only the crumbs that others had left on the street. So she illuded herself and carefree ran toward the carnage of World War I that a little later would burst.

At the roar of the cannon we had to wave our flag in a foreign land, not for the success of the Italian genius that to look good is nothing else except the inventiveness of the poor. And against a defenseless nation whose army could not even compete with the Italian.

In more recent times and after being closed the historical parenthesis of Colonel Gaddafi and the Jamahiriyya he had founded without firing a shot, Italy thought she could cash in for the betrayal that it had achieved once again. This forgetting that the traitors never have a real say in the harmful actions to which they lend themselves, especially when they are only poor bullies.

This is what is left of Sirte one of many cities. We have to thank the Allies for destroying a sovereign country

It’s of these days the news appeared that ISIS is rampant in Libya. Killing dozens of Christians. Sentencing to death and slaughtering anyone who opposes its distorted view of Islam. There have even have been addressed to Italy threats of bombing with Scud missiles. According to some rumors, the members of ISIS are already in our area, not far from Rome.

Aside from the dead with their throats cut for their religious diversity, we can say that some are hotshot propaganda. It is not clear by whom, however.

Our Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, the man with an ice cream in hand, immediately offered to send a contingent of troops to defend freedom, poetry and all the beautiful things that make life worth living in the West. Not least that slice of booty oil that Italy is so determined to get for herself by law for the role she has played in the bombing campaign. But shortly after Renzi backtracked: someone has explained to him that it was not the case, that would not be a victorious short ride and that in fact to Italy was not for nothing.

There is no peace in Libya but it was natural to finish so. Only fools could and can still believe that more than eight months of fierce bombardments have been put in place to defend a who knows what freedom and democracy in the post-Gaddafi Libya.

Libya found herself slaughtered and fallen into a Somalia condition and used as a forerunner for the war against Syria and Iran. And yet, perhaps for an example of historical justice, not only the Green Jamahiriyya disappeared but Italian democracy too.

Sure, it was not a thing blatant and flashy as for Libya. Of course, the process was already in place by many and too many years and therefore no one has noticed it, let alone the Italian people, but the fact remains that the disappearance there has been.

The point that interest us directly is that the Italian Prime Minister in those days, Silvio Berlusconi, literally fell from the clouds when began the facts which led to the destruction of Libya and the assassination of brother leader Muhammad Gaddafi.

It became apparent that Silvio Berlusconi knew nothing of what was brewing against Tripoli. But Italy had hosted Gaddafi in Rome a year before signing on that occasion a treaty of friendship and non-interference, as well as numerous other trade agreements.

Italian oil company ENI, founded by Enrico Mattei bemoaned and died in circumstances that someone goes back to a murder done by the Italian mafia but commissioned by the CIA, was at home in Libya. His presence was so important that almost excluded other foreign companies. And there was an entire galaxy of small and medium-sized Italian companies that traded with the Libyans and many of these companies had factories on Libyan soil too. We can not forget the great business in the Libyan public constructions, including all the major Italian manufacturers. And finally how to ignore the rescue of Italian bank Unicredit? Twenty million euro paid ready cash by Gaddafi thanks to which his failure and a dangerous domino effect on the entire Italian banking system was avoided.

So a lot of money run and yet the old Berlusconi was still surprised and shocked by the outbreak of hostilities.

You cannot think that there were no Italian intelligence agents in Libya, given the number and nature of the business that our country had with Tripoli. But our intelligence services apparently have not seen or heard anything that was worth reporting to our government.

Similarly our diplomats in the United States, France, England and other chancelleries of Europe have not been able to grasp even the slightest clue, even something of indirect that would put our leaders on notice.

Our generals and colonels have never heard any rumor during their meetings with NATO colleagues, no whisper, no allusive sentences dropped without conclusion. Nothing at all.

The reality is different: the Italian rulers have always been perfunctory, some less than others but all subjected to the command of the US. With Silvio Berlusconi the situation has reached a higher level, however. Always obsessively dominated by those his sexual instincts that so filled with ridiculous our country in the eyes of the world. Always on the run from a huge number of judicial investigations, for crimes that in another country, even just a little more civilized of contemporary Italy, would have cost the political career for even a mere suspicion.

And is natural that to such a person is given only enough rope to hang himself and not be allowed instead of governing a Nation with dignity. Notwithstanding that, it is hard to believe that the word “dignity” find place in the personal vocabulary of Berlusconi and in general in that of the Italian politicians.

The Italian Democratic Party and the remnants offal of the Italian left urged the government to go to war in the name of democracy and freedom mantra, loyalty to the Atlantic ally and NATO. Retaliation came when Berlusconi and his puppets did the same in reversed roles during the ignoble war against Serbia of Milosevic and the Balkan tragedy. Berlusconi managed to withstand a week and then capitulated, as expected.

Once again to pay for the filth of the Italian domestic politics were a foreign country and a foreign people who had not done anything against Italy but that on the contrary we Italians had already tormented much in the past.

And yet you should remember one thing well: i.e. a Nation that does not know how to express a government worthy of this name nor control her army and her secret police, is a Nation without a future. Therefore I wonder when History will make a pair with us and Italy will end up dismembered and removed, to the political games of foreign States that they said our friends until a few moments before. Maybe soon.

Armored vehicles to the Islamists of Libya caught by storming on the ship on the south of Crete and Libya Armed Forces Releases TIMELINE of Events of Turkish Ship Carrying Foreign Fighters to Derna


Armored vehicles to the Islamists of Libya caught by storming on the ship on the south of Crete and Libya Armed Forces Releases TIMELINE of Events of Turkish Ship Carrying Foreign Fighters to Derna

 

 

Great success of OS and special forces of the Navy yesterday seizing the load vehicles intended for the Islamists of ISIS in Libya.

The prosecuting authorities had information that a cargo ship would try to illegally deliver cargo in the port of Libya which is under the control of armed criminal organization of ISIS in order to use it for their own use to the war that continues to grip the devastated country.

So with combined business since Port Authority and the Hellenic Navy spotted the truck vessel south of Crete. Immediately was organized undertaking of the special forces of the Port Authority men which they undertook storming on board the truck vessel to check the authenticity of the documents that accompanied the cargo.

The audit revealed that the the truck vessel ship had sailed from the UAE was destined for Libya but there were no documents to justify its cargo namely the end-user certificate (End User Certificate) something that automatically made it illegal cargo.

Besides there was absolutely no justification and from an official entity of the UN as well as to extract military equipment to Libya which requires permission of the organization.

From the investigation conducted later in the hold of the ship‘s men Port Authority they found:

18 MRAP vehicles type Typhoon – USA

Five armored Toyota Land Cruiser 200 – USA

Two armored BMW – USA

8 smaller SUV vehicles – USA

The above armored vehicles are specifications only for the USA Army.

Forthwith after verification of the cargo on the vessel that had leased the company Streit Security Systems was seized and the ship is at a port of Crete in order to make the unloading.

As mentioned authorities have reasonable suspicions that the cargo had as the final beneficiary the terrorist organization ISIS branches which operate in Libya and which are equipped with fast pace in order to occupy more and more of the country.

The loss of the consignment is considered a great loss as the MRAP vehicles would be particularly useful for a range of uses from the Islamists.

Now all of this equipment, information about presence of small quantities of portable weapons has been confirmed, it will come into possession of the SCE will acquire quite inexpensive 18 MRAP vehicles which had previously.

Indeed the lack of vehicles meant that the forces ELDAF in Afghanistan were forced to request and receive five vehicles MRAP American V type structure to meet their needs but which then returned.

The Typhoon vehicle is type 4 × 4 category as mentioned armored and protective ambushes, mines and IED (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) and can carry up to 10 equipped troops.

Carry arms of a machine gun of 7.62 mm. or 12.7 mm., grenade launcher, weighing 12.5 tons, developing a maximum speed of 100 mph and autonomy of 1000 km.

So when Turkey says that she was wronged by the Libyan army/Navy we have to believe her right? Wrong here I have a screen picture taken few days ago reporting the whole timeline before striking the ship.

VT Sniper Platform

 

American built sniper rifles and specialized optics, thermal and light amplification, all very restricted, are flooding into Turkey.  They are going to Al Qaeda.  The production is from small shops, one or two owned by dilatant Fox News “generals” and GOP mercenary groups.  VT is the primary designer of these weapons but has the wrong politics.

Israeli “businessmen” have been roaming the US, visiting the many and sundry machine shops and custom assembly facilities that produce sniper rifles.  They pick up samples, often without legal transfer as required by law, as foreign nationals can’t buy weapons in the US.  That doesn’t matter, these are Israeli’s and weapons they get can go out on El Al planes, diplomatic pouches or be carried to Israel by members of congress, they own more than a few of those.

The weapon wanted is the mysterious AR 10, the .308 and/or 7.62x51mm version of the old semi-reliable M16 or M4 carbine.  The weapons are showing up in Turkey, mostly in sniper configuration.  I know a bit about these things as VT has an affiliated custom shop that produces more models of AR 10 sniper rifles than any other.

These are low production specialized weapons.  There is little standardization for the AR 10, no “mil spec” as it were.  Parts from one don’t fit another, springs and triggers don’t fit, receivers are non-standard and most bolt carriers don’t work in any weapon, not as manufactured.  Why do people want these weapons?

11 inch barrel, .308

The standard sniper rifle used in much of the world is the Dragunov in Russian 7.62x54R, a rimmed cartridge from well over 100 years ago.  These are outstanding weapons but have no buffer group, don’t adapt to modern optics well and, though semi-automatic, can’t put out rapid accurate fire at above 500 meters because of recoil.  The AR 10 has no recoil.

Are sniper rifles the only weapons being gathered for Al Qaeda?  First of all, it should be a reasonable concern that weapons like these are going into the hands of terrorists.  It might also be a concern that they are coming from the United States and flowing directly to the group that many Americans, those who believe our government, a smaller group every minute, believe was responsible for 9/11.

Who are they going to kill with these things?  Will it just be Syrian soldiers or are there other plans? ****This is a dangerous game they are playing as it’s not only sold to the extremists in Syria but also to Libya that is why the Turkish Ship was hit by the Libyan army as it was trying to dock in Derna to supply them these arms..

Quality weapons aren’t that hard to get.  However, these fire much like the American M4, a very underpowered but highly accurate and very light rifle.  What they do that the M4 and AK47 does not do is shoot 800 meters with deadly accuracy.  A child can kill at extreme distances with one of these with almost no training at all.  These weapons were what the US didn’t have in Afghanistan and why the US bought back a shipload of aging Garand style M14s from Korea, weapons that are primitive in comparison although excellent.

VT came upon the sniper rifle bazaar because we are embedded in that community.  These weapons are made from limited production parts with companies like Armalite, DPMS, Matrix Aerospace, Aero Precision and Palmetto putting out the majority of basic receiver sets.  The sale of these is tracked and mass production has not been ramped up though we are obviously going to see it now.

Moreover, there are only dozen or so gunsmith/designers who have worked with this “build platform” more than casually.

The partnership between Israel and Turkey is no surprise.  The superiority of American weapons is a surprise to some but it shouldn’t be.  What should be of note is that Al Qaeda feels totally free to come to the United States to gather needed hardware designed only to murder specific medium to high value targets and nobody seems to care. ***Why should they care Al Qaeda is an American/Israeli proxy instead of using American/Israeli soldiers they use Al Qaeda it’s cheaper and the American/Israeli mothers will not receive their sons/daughters in body bags and start a riot against their government policies… they learned this lesson from Afghanistan and Iraq.

With a 24 inch Ar 10 with a thermal scope, a SWAT officer nearly a thousand yards away wearing extensive camouflage and obscured by smoke can be killed quickly and easily with a single shot.  A skilled shooter with a Semi-Automatic Sniper System can erase an entire special operations team in 15 seconds.  There are specialized optics available for these weapons that automatically track a chosen target and operate the trigger as well.

We don’t even want to begin discussing remote sniper systems that work off an I pad anywhere on earth.

Someone has decided to “inoculate” themselves from American SEAL teams and Special Forces by flooding the battlefield with “low rent” amateur snipers.

This is one weapon system, just one.  How many others are getting the same “quick to market” promotion near Al Qaeda’s Hatay, Turkey training camps?

THANK YOU HILLARY CLINTON, OBAMA, CAMERON, SARKOZY AND THE UN FOR YOUR ILLEGAL INVASION IN LIBYA SO THAT WE COULD ARRIVE TO YOUR DEMOCRACY of Child brides’ boom in Derna as record number of girls married off to ISIS/DAESH fighters


THANK YOU HILLARY CLINTON, OBAMA, CAMERON, SARKOZY AND THE UN FOR YOUR ILLEGAL INVASION IN LIBYA SO THAT WE COULD ARRIVE TO YOUR DEMOCRACY of Child brides’ boom in Derna as record number of girls married off to ISIS/DAESH fighters

ISIS/DAESH fighters allied to the Islamic State seized large parts of Derna in October 2014(Reuters)

 

To all of my readers, please sent a thank you letter to Ms. Clinton, Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy, Kin Moon of the UN and to all the allied Nations who participated in TOPPLING THE PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT AND INSTALLING THE WESTERN DEMOCRATIC ISIS/DAESH GOVERNMENT IN LIBYA. We couldn’t have anticipated such freedom! Sending us back in time where there is no law, no freedom, where women are objects and not human beings, where selling children is a MUST and women trafficking is good business. Is this the DEMOCRACY the west was PREACHING? OR the EX-PATRIOTS of Libya were dreaming off? Well CONGRATULATIONS for the new DEMOCRACY INSTALLED I hope all of you who participated in this illegal war in 2011 and have blood on your hands that your children, all your loved ones and in generations to come to SUFFER A THOUSAND DEATHS AND FEAR FOR THEIR LIVES THE WAY THESE YOUNG GIRLS SUFFER EVERYDAY.

Child marriage has increased in the Libyan city of Derna since it was taken over by the Islamic State (Isis/Daesh) group, with girls as young as 12 married off to Daesh fighters, often in exchange of protection and power, local doctors have confirmed.  ****The parents should be hanged on the spot for what they are doing to their children…

The number of under-age girls forced to marry has increased 15 fold since an IS/Daesh local branch seized large part of the coastal city in October last year, local doctors told The Times.

“Just in the clinics that we are able to monitor, we are seeing four to five cases of under-age brides every week and it’s getting worse,” Asmaa Said, a local activist who drew up a report on the practice based on data secretly passed on to her by doctors operating in Derna, told the British newspaper.

“There is also the spread of STDs and the growing prevalence of miscarriages, premature and stillbirths”.

Said brought the account of a 12-year-old schoolgirl who was married off to a jihadist and suffered irreparable damage to her reproductive organs after a miscarriage that followed repeated rapes by her husband. There is no excuse for the parents and the terrorists they should be killed on the spot. This is a slave exchange, so where is the UN? Or UNICEF for that matter? These poor children are sent to their death sentence…. and for what a mere protection? Really? Then Please do not be surprised if the hatred towards Europe and America is unjust…. JUST LOOK AT WHAT YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED… CHILD SLAVERY… I know I am talking to DEAF EARS but I am begging you dear readers RAISE YOUR VOICES TO YOUR GOVERNMENTS today it’s the Libyan, Syrian, Palestinian, Yemeni, Iraqi, Afghan, African children TOMORROW IT WILL BE YOUR CHILDREN…. if not tomorrow it will be very soon…

The distressing situation many children are facing in Derna was confirmed by local gynecologists who said they are treating sex-related injuries in an increasing number of girls with no knowledge of sex.

“They come into the clinic playing with their dolls,” the doctor, who preferred to remain anonymous, told The Times.

Another Derna activist, named only as Abdel-Rahman, said parents were in many cases giving away their child daughters to fighters, mainly foreigners from Arabic-speaking countries, as marital status is perceived as a form of protection for them and by reflex for the whole family. Is this the DEMOCRACY THAT YOU WANTED?

“Some of them get nice cars and nice houses, too,” he told the newspaper.

Libya has been embroiled in fighting since the overthrow of late  Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Battling for control of the country currently involves HoR together with the Libyan army forces, and The GNC which is Libya Dawn and an umbrella group including radical Islamists, and an IS/Daesh local offshoot that recently infiltrated several coastal cities.

In the areas it controls, IS/Daesh enforces a reign of terror based on its strict interpretation of Sharia law.

Under the jihadi group’s rules, purported un-Islamic activities, such as smoking, drinking alcohol and playing instrumental music, are also banned. While they themselves are allowed to drink, rape, smoke, listen to music and kill at will. THESE ARE THE MODERATE MUSLIMS PLEASE!
