A new intervention Threatens the devastated Libyan patriots after the martyr Gaddafi loyalists take full monitoring of southern Libya
Fighting has broken out again in southern and western Libya clashes as pro-Gaddafi forces Between Rebel Militias have resulted in the seizure of several cities and an air base by loyalist. These events led French Admiral Edouard Guillard to appeal for imperialist intervention in Libya Renewed denying they evolution along the southern border Could lead to a “terrorist threat.” (Washington Post, 27 January)
Guillard said any intervention would require the consent of the neocolonial regime in Tripoli headed by Prime Minister Ali Zeidan and General National Congress (GNC). Yet almost three years ago, the UN Security Council passed two resolutions impose an arms embargo on the Gaddafi government and “authorizes” the “fly zone”, a code word for a massive bombing campaign lasting eight months.
Since mid-January the allied forces REMAIN With the former political and economic system under the rule of Libya Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who was overthrown and killed brutally in October 2011 amid the Pentagon and NATO bombing campaign monitoring took several cities and towns in the South. Sebha, a town in the area has-been the scene of clashes Between Two ethnic groups Tebu and Awlad Sulaiman.
Other areas include Affected by the fighting south Wirshefana Ajilat, Zawia and territory west of Zahra. Clashes have Also Been Reported around the capital Tripoli, where loyalist forces have Fought pitched battles with Militias and military forces are backed by the regime of GNC. ( Libya Herald, January 20)
The Tebu , are dark-skinned Africans, are in conflict over the monitoring of resources in Awlad Sulaiman. Their withdrawal airbase in Tamenhint created the conditions for taking this important location by pro-Gaddafi forces on January 21.
ACCORDING to a report published by the Saudi Gazette, “The Tamenhint airbase 30 km north-east of Sebha is Reported to be back in the hands of Gaddafi forces guarding after tebu Mourzouk Withdrew. They unilaterally Monday night (January 20), denying that the government was deliberately exploiting clashes between Sebha and Awlad Sulaiman TEBUS in order to divert attention from movements to replace it with a new administration. “(January 22)
These events sent shock waves through the GNC and its weak and vacillating prime minister who is allied With the United States and other imperialist states Were responsible for the installation of the current regime in power. During the counter-revolutionary uprising of 2011. Libya Situation Clearly Demonstrated That the current regime has failed to stabilize the country in the Militias Which Were Involved in criminal activities in defiance Zeidan and other “authorities” in Tripoli.
The oil industry, which is the main export of the state of North Africa, has-been Largely off workers after Militias and various drilling installations and ports have taken Control of the production and threaten to exercise trade with foreign companies without the consent of Tripoli. Zeidan Within the limited support has GNC and the Islamic Justice and Building Party (JCP) recently resigned from the government due to political Differences With the prime minister.
However, the events in the South, where the Green flag of the Jamahiriya is Openly flying in defiance of the regime supported by the West is Causing Panic Within the country. A new law prohibits satellite TV networks to broadcast news and commentary now for Gaddafi is a direct result of the unstable situation of GNC.
Draconian laws Enacted
AllAfrica.com Reported That ” Decree 5/2014, “Regarding cessation and prohibition of the Dissemination of a certain satellite channels, ‘passed by Parliament Libya’s General National Congress (GNC), 22 January instructs ministries of Foreign Affairs, Communications, and [the Mass ] Media to ‘take the Necessary Measures “to stop the transmission of all channels of satellite TV That are” hostile to the revolution February 17 and Whose purpose is to destabilize the country and create divisions Among Libyans. ” It further instructs the government to ” Take All Measures against companies in the states or territories from the Which channels are broadcast if not block the transmission of These stations. “(January 26)
This legal prohibition Seems destined to block satellite stations that have taken a pro-Gaddafi position in publishing its content. Such stations include channel al-Khadra and al-Jamahiriya.
Discontent is growing Among the Libyan population to the current situation. The most prosperous nation in Africa, with a standard of living That exceed several states in Europe, the conditions inside the country have the counter-revolution Deteriorated Dramatically since 2011.
This decline in living standards, the failure of the regime to reign in the Militias terrorizing the population, the collapse of the oil industry and Widespread corruption has even developed EXTENSIVE reviews Favored Among the elites. Another decree was issued in January, which prohibits scholarship students and employees to speak out against the conditions prevailing in Libya.
In the same article published by AllAfrica.com, notes That ” the Libyan government ADOPTED Resolution 13/2014 of 24 January to suspend scholarships to students studying abroad and salaries and bonuses to employees of Libya, for “participate in activities Contrary to the February 17 revolution of “which is Widely Considered to be comprehensive statements and protests against the current government . The Libyan embassies abroad and others are asked to Develop lists of names and refer to the Attorney General for trial. “
Imperialism in Crisis
These Developments in Libya show That there is no benefit for the masses of oppressed nations, where other U.S. imperialist states have overthrown Governments and installed puppet regimes. The situation in Libya is reflected Also in Iraq, where people die every day of internal conflict and the That horrendous conditions prevail Among the majority of the population.
In Syria, more than 100,000 People Have died in the past three years since the U.S. has supported a counter-assault on the population. Present talks in Geneva Switzerland are ostensibly designed to reach a political solution Despite The U.S. and allies continue to Their finance and coordinate Those seeking to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
The anti-war and anti-imperialist groups in Western countries must Oppose this military and political interference in the internal affairs of Asian states: such as Afghanistan, where twelve years after the forces of the Pentagon and NATO is no closer Victory nowadays are Africa, the Middle East and in 2001. The U.S. and NATO Should be forced to withdraw its forces from foreign states and close its military bases.
The resources used to Maintain These occupations Should be redirected to rebuild the cities and towns are facing unprecedented That economic crisis through austerity and mass poverty. Such oppressed nations under imperialist occupation Should be paid compensation for the destruction Carried out by Western military forces.
Any Black-Green alliance in Libya?
“As These two forces begin to fight against racist and imperialist These puppets who rule the country are beginning to see a form of mass resistance. Having finished what form Remains to Be Seen.”
