NATO is Building Up for War


NATO is Building Up for War

undefined

The German city of Frankfurt is continental Europe’s largest financial center and host to the country’s Stock Exchange, countless other financial institutions, and the headquarters of the European Central Bank (ECB) which is responsible for administering the monetary policy of the 18-nation Eurozone. The place is awash with money, as demonstrated by the plush new ECB office building which is costing a fortune.

The original price of the bank’s enormous palace was supposed to be 500 million euros, about 550 million dollars, but the bill has now been admitted as €1.3 billion (£930 m; $1.4 bn). This absurdly over-expensive fiasco was directed by the people who are supposed to steer the financial courses of 18 nations and their half billion unfortunate citizens. If the ECB displays similar skill sets in looking after Europe’s money as it has in controlling the cost of constructing its huge twin-tower headquarters, then Europe is in for a rocky time.

Intriguingly, the Bank isn’t alone in contributing to Europe’s bureaucratic building boom. There is another Europe-based organization of equal ambition, pomposity and incompetence which is building a majestically expensive and luxurious headquarters with a mammoth cost overrun about which it is keeping very quiet indeed.

The perpetrator of this embarrassing farce is NATO, the US-Canada-European North Atlantic Treaty Organization which is limping out of Afghanistan licking its wounds, having been fighting a bunch of sandal-wearing rag-clad amateur irregulars who gave the hi-tech forces of the West a very hard time in a war whose outcome was predictable. But the debacle hasn’t dimmed the vision of the zealous leaders of NATO who are confronting Russia in order to justify the existence of their creaking, leaking, defeated dinosaur. Their problem is not only do they lose wars, but they then look for another one to fight — to be directed from a glittery new and vastly expensive building whose cost has soared above all estimates.

Just like NATO’s wars.

NATO’s operation “Unified Protector” to overthrow Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi involved a massive aerial blitz of 9,658 airstrikes which ended with the gruesome murder of Gadhafi — and caused collapse of Libya into an omnishambles where fanatics of the barbarous Islamic State are now establishing themselves.

In spite of the horror of NATO’s Libyan catastrophe one does have to have a quiet smile about Ivo H. Daalder and James G Stavridis whose deeply researched analysis in the journal Foreign Affairs in 2012 was titled “NATO’s Victory in Libya.” These sages declared that “NATO’s operation in Libya has rightly been hailed as a model intervention . . . NATO’s involvement in Libya demonstrated that the alliance remains an essential source of stability . . . NATO may not be able to replicate its success in Libya in another decade. NATO members must therefore use the Chicago summit to strengthen the alliance by ensuring that the burden sharing that worked so well in Libya — and continues in Afghanistan today — becomes the rule, not the exception.”

Not much is working well in either Libya or Afghanistan two years after the Daalder-Stavridis advocacy of “burden sharing” and it is obvious that NATO has been the opposite of a “source of stability” in both unfortunate countries.

In October 2005 I wrote that “NATO is to increase its troop numbers in Afghanistan to 15,000 and its secretary-general states that instead of acting as a peacekeeping force it will assume the combat role of US troops, which is insane . . .  The insurgency in Afghanistan will continue until foreign troops leave, whenever that might be. After a while, the government in Kabul will collapse and there will be anarchy until a brutal, ruthless, drug-rich warlord achieves power. He will rule the country as it has always been ruled by Afghans: by threats, religious ferocity, deceit, bribery, and outright savagery when the latter can be practiced without retribution. And the latest foreign occupation will become just another memory.”

The number of US-NATO troops in Afghanistan has been reduced from a high of 130,000 to 13,000, of which some 10,000 are US, but NATO’s new headquarters building in Brussels is expanding in both size and cost. The budget for the immense complex was approved at 460 million Euros (500 million US dollars) in 2010 but has now surged to over 1.25 billion Euros, about 1.4 billion dollars.

Germany’s Der Spiegel reported in January that the scandal of the cost overrun was being kept secret by all governments contributing to this redundant organization. A leaked cable from Germany’s ambassador explained that at a meeting of NATO representatives last December they “pointed to the disastrous effect on the image of the alliance if construction were to stop and if NATO appeared to be incapable of punctually completing a construction project that was decided at the NATO summit of government leaders in April 1999 in Washington. The risk of a further cost increase is already palpable.”

The solution to NATO’s self-imposed image problem was simple : the people responsible for managing the affairs of a military alliance involving 28 countries, 3.5 million combatants and 5,000 nuclear weapons decided, as asked by the staff of its Secretary General, to deal with the matter “confidentially.” In other words, the cost overruns and delays in construction are being deliberately concealed from the public in the hope that NATO’s executives will not appear incompetent.

Meantime, while trying to conceal their flaws, faults and failings in management of basic administrative affairs, NATO’s chiefs are squaring up to Russia in an attempt to persuade the world that President Putin is about to mount an invasion from the east. The focal point of NATO’s contrived alarm is the corrupt and chaotic regime in power in Ukraine, which has serious disagreements with Russia and is therefore energetically supported by the United States to the point of distortion, menace, and mendacity.

As reported in the UK’s Daily Telegraph on March 4, the commander of US troops in Europe, General Frederick “Ben” Hodges, has accused Russia of having 12,000 troops inside eastern Ukraine, which was irresponsible nonsense.

Hodges was formerly the army’s Congressional Liaison Officer in Washington where he obviously acquired a taste for political grandstanding, as in a political speech of the sort that generals have no right to make he declared that “We have to raise the cost for Putin. Right now he has 85 per cent domestic support. But when mothers start seeing their sons come home dead, when the price goes up, domestic support goes down,” which was as offensive as it was hostile.

In February the Wall Street Journal reported Hodges as saying “I believe the Russians are mobilizing right now for a war that they think is going to happen in five or six years—not that they’re going to start a war in five or six years, but I think they are anticipating that things are going to happen, and that they will be in a war of some sort, of some scale, with somebody within the next five or six years.” Just what President Putin was supposed to make of that is anyone’s guess — but it is certain that Hodges’ bellicose meanderings did nothing to persuade Moscow that there would be any attempt by the US-NATO coalition to modify its policy of uncompromising enmity.

Other pronouncements by NATO leaders have been equally threatening and intended to convince the public of western Europe that Russia attacked Ukraine.

But even if Russia had indeed invaded Ukraine, it would have had nothing whatever to do with anyone else.

The US-NATO coalition willfully ignores the fact that Ukraine is not a member of either the European Union or NATO and has no treaty of any sort with any nation in the world that would require provision of political, economic or military support in the event of a bilateral dispute with any other country. Yet NATO has seized upon the Ukraine-Russia discord to justify its policy of unrelenting hostility to Moscow.

NATO should have been disbanded at the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union because that threat was the sole reason for its existence; but it decided to multiply membership and extend its military presence closer and closer to Russia’s borders. There is little wonder that Russia is apprehensive about NATO’s intentions, as the muscle-flexing coalition lurches towards conflict.

NATO’S Supreme Commander, US General Breedlove, has also contributed greatly to tension and fear in Europe by issuing dire warnings about Russia’s supposed maneuvers. On March 5 he indulged in fantasy by claiming, without a shred of evidence and no subsequent proof, that Russia had deployed “well over a thousand combat vehicles” along with “combat forces, some of their most sophisticated air defense, battalions of artillery” within Ukraine. This pronouncement was similar to his downright lie of November 18, 2014, when he told the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that there were “regular Russian army units in eastern Ukraine.”

The swell of anti-Russian propaganda, confrontation and attempted intimidation by NATO has increased, and if it continues to do so it is likely that Moscow will take action, thereby upping the stakes and the danger even more. It is time that NATO’s nations came to terms with the reality that Russia is a major international power with legitimate interests in its own region. Moscow is not going to bow the knee in the face of immature threats by sabre-rattling US generals and their swaggering acolytes. It is time for NATO to forge ties rather than destroy them — and to build bridges rather than glitzy office blocks.

SECRET DOCUMENT SHOWING THE INVOLVEMENT OF THE LIBYAN AMBASSADOR IN WASHINGTON(USA) TO DESTROY LIBYA


SECRET DOCUMENT SHOWING THE INVOLVEMENT OF THE LIBYAN AMBASSADOR IN WASHINGTON(USA) TO DESTROY LIBYA

A confidential official secret document surfaced indicating the involvement of the Libyan Ambassador Ali Suleiman Aujali in Washington (USA) dated on 01/01/2012. THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

 A confidential document showing the involvement of the Libyan ambassador in Washington (USA), Ali Suleiman Aujali this confidential document (official) dated on 01.01.2012: the sender is: Libyan ambassador in Washington (USA), Ali Suleiman Aujali consignees: the leaders of the military battalions and security leaders and heads of Militias (Twenty-three office), including: (Ghebrel- Ali Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Zeidan- Masmari). The Fax number shown through the document that the message was actually sent from Washington, note that Mr. Ali Suleiman Aujali is close to Mahmoud Jibril, who has been funded by some Gulf countries, notably (UAE) text of the document: By reading the document, we can see that the Libyan Ambassador Ali Suleiman Aujali sent this secret telegram with direct instructions of the leaders of security and military battalion commanders to target sow discord in Libya between armed cells and political currents as ordered. The leaders explicitly military battalions planting horror and growing insecurity in the Libyan street and careful to disrupt the public life and disrupt services to citizens such as(electricity cutand watersocial services and health sectors) the document was also keen to categorize and directing the battalion commanders and security chiefs sowing discord between the Libyan tribes and also arming affiliated categorize the former regime (follow Gaddafi) even enter into a military conflict with their enemies and avenge the purpose behind this scheme already as we mentioned that the Libyan ambassador in Washington (Ali Suleiman Aujali) is very close to Mahmoud Jibril, who received significant funding from the United Arab Emirates (and we have the evidence) and through the document it’s clear to us that the Libyan ambassador in Washington did not give this instruction alone he is simply an intermediary for major powers and are likely to be (USA), which seeks to implement the agenda. Acts are stipend precisely in Libya, the consignment was at the beginning of two thousand and twelve (after toppling the Gaddafi regime) and if we look closely at the content of the document, which urges to plant  lawlessness in Libya and to sow discord, discord among the military battalions and the security cells and between tribes. All of these Libya have become events experienced today in two thousand and fifteen. Where suddenly appeared the splits in the center of the Libyans, fighting between the battalions militia, which was yesterday (allied with each other), and after a period turned miraculously into hostile enemies of the truth behind all of this.

The scheme is: to plunge the Libyan streets in growing lawlessness and defections and disrupt public life and servicesall of these things will have repercussions categorize (the Libyan citizen) who lives a great horror.  Only in this in the way its been proposed of foreign military intervention (UN) on the Libyan people would accept the proposal, but they will demand from the gulf because the Libyan people who live this civil war between the battalions and militias and live a hard life (because of disabled public services) will not keep him ill claim intervention Council security international to send foreign military forces to Libya to save them – and that is exactly what the Western powers are behind this scheme and that works for the Ambassador Ali Suleiman Aujali looking through this document and to understand that Western financiers and foreign allies actually plans for military intervention in Libya (by US forces with the participation of NATO) or by their allies (Council GCC – Morocco – Jordan – Egypt) who make up the majority of the Arab League, and this is what is currently happening in Libya. Yemen has the same scenario.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: UN asked to investigate human rights violations in Libya


 

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: UN asked to investigate human rights violations in Libya

The Rusaifa agency writes: the Human Rights Council at the United Nations asked the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to investigate the violations committed in Libya since the fall of the late Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime. All of us activists can sent to the HR commissioner all the documents we have for all the atrocities that occurred from the time of the illegal war in 2011 till today. We have videos, pictures, and very few prisoners who escaped that tell their horror in the hidden prisons that exist in the whole of Libya. We know for a fact that the HRight’s people will do nothing because all these documents that we have will have to go to the ICC which also includes foreign soldiers who were on the ground and unfortunately they have stayed till today, also NATO nations who were involved in these atrocities… but lets take this in good faith will they put in prison their star leader which is Abdelhakim Belhaj? or the phony PM Hassi? How about the lunatic Badi? lets not forget the 2 people the United States kidnapped from Libya and have them in their custody, well now one the other died or so they say during an operation he had and somehow a healthy man died on the operation table it’s just a fortunate coincidence so that he would not address the court and reveal what the American foreign policy together with the CIA did to Libya….

The Human Rights Council of the United Nations to begin an investigation into the crimes since 2014 in Libya violations witnessing the chaos since the fall of the former regime and the dispute adjudicated two governments. Well good luck to them first assailants are the USA, FRANCE, BRITAIN, QATAR, SAUDI ARABIA then come Belhaj and his crew which created 240 militias in Libya to terrorize all Libyan civilians.

Members of the 47 countries in the Council has unanimously adopted a resolution in this sense, the initiative of the African Group and the Group of Arab countries and a large number of EU countries, including France and Britain. Isn’t that grand the same countries that bombed Libya murdered in cold blood the President of the country so that they could have a regime change.. Who are they kidding?

The Council requested in this decision of the High Commission of the United Nations for Human Rights “to immediately send a mission to investigate violations and abuses of international human rights law committed in Libya since the beginning of 2014″. Do not go far, we have all the documents here ABDULHAKIM BELHAJ, BADI RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GARGOUR MASSACRE, TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT OF TRIPOLI, You also have Hassi the taxi driver he is also responsible for attacks of HoR in Tobruk you can also look into the Muslim Brotherhood who altogether are financed, protected by the USA/QATAR/SAUDI ARABIA/UN. So you see whatever they say they want to do it’s not going to happen as they are all involved.

The investigators should “establish the facts and circumstances … so that there will be no impunity.” Yes this will happen when hell freezes over.

These will provide the first oral report in September, followed by a written report within a year during the thirty-first meeting of the Council.

The UN Security Council asked the International Criminal Court in February 2011 an investigation into crimes committed in Libya during the events that led Western military intervention after the fall of the late Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime. HERE GOES THE SAYING BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.

But can not be available to the Court, means to conduct an investigation because of the chaos that prevails in the country

US-Saudi Blitz in Yemen: Naked Aggression, Absolute Desperation


US-Saudi Blitz in Yemen: Naked Aggression, Absolute Desperation

(Tony Cartalucci – NEO) – The “proxy war” model the US has been employing throughout the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and even in parts of Asia appears to have failed yet again, this time in the Persian Gulf state of Yemen.

Overcoming the US-Saudi backed regime in Yemen, and a coalition of sectarian extremists including Al Qaeda and its rebrand, the “Islamic State,” pro-Iranian Yemeni Houthi militias have turned the tide against American “soft power” and has necessitated a more direct military intervention. While US military forces themselves are not involved allegedly, Saudi warplanes and a possible ground force are.

Though Saudi Arabia claims “10 countries” have joined its coalition to intervene in Yemen, like the US invasion and occupation of Iraq hid behind a “coalition,” it is overwhelmingly a Saudi operation with “coalition partners” added in a vain attempt to generate diplomatic legitimacy.

The New York Times, even in the title of its report, “Saudi Arabia Begins Air Assault in Yemen,” seems not to notice these “10” other countries. It reports:

Saudi Arabia announced on Wednesday night that it had launched a military campaign in Yemen, the beginning of what a Saudi official said was an offensive to restore a Yemeni government that had collapsed after rebel forces took control of large swaths of the country. 

The air campaign began as the internal conflict in Yemen showed signs of degenerating into a proxy war between regional powers. The Saudi announcement came during a rare news conference in Washington by Adel al-Jubeir, the kingdom’s ambassador to the United States.

Proxy War Against Iran 

Indeed, the conflict in Yemen is a proxy war. Not between Iran and Saudi Arabia per say, but between Iran and the United States, with the United States electing Saudi Arabia as its unfortunate stand-in.

Iran’s interest in Yemen serves as a direct result of the US-engineered “Arab Spring” and attempts to overturn the political order of North Africa and the Middle East to create a unified sectarian front against Iran for the purpose of a direct conflict with Tehran. The war raging in Syria is one part of this greater geopolitical conspiracy, aimed at overturning one of Iran’s most important regional allies, cutting the bridge between it and another important ally, Hezbollah in Lebanon.

And while Iran’s interest in Yemen is currently portrayed as yet another example of Iranian aggression, indicative of its inability to live in peace with its neighbors, US policymakers themselves have long ago already noted that Iran’s influence throughout the region, including backing armed groups, serves a solely defensive purpose, acknowledging the West and its regional allies’ attempts to encircle, subvert, and overturn Iran’s current political order.

The US-based RAND Corporation, which describes itself as “a nonprofit institution that helps improve policy and decision making through research and analysis,” produced a report in 2009 for the US Air Force titled, “Dangerous But Not Omnipotent : Exploring the Reach and Limitations of Iranian Power in the Middle East,” examining the structure and posture of Iran’s military, including its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and weapons both present, and possible future, it seeks to secure its borders and interests with against external aggression.

The report admits that:

Iran’s strategy is largely defensive, but with some offensive elements. Iran’s strategy of protecting the regime against internal threats, deterring aggression, safeguarding the homeland if aggression occurs, and extending influence is in large part a defensive one that also serves some aggressive tendencies when coupled with expressions of Iranian regional aspirations. It is in part a response to U.S. policy pronouncements and posture in the region, especially since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The Iranian leadership takes very seriously the threat of invasion given the open discussion in the United States of regime change, speeches defining Iran as part of the “axis of evil,” and efforts by U.S. forces to secure base access in states surrounding Iran.

Whatever imperative Saudi Arabia is attempting to cite in justifying its military aggression against Yemen, and whatever support the US is trying to give the Saudi regime rhetorically, diplomatically, or militarily, the legitimacy of this military operation crumbles before the words of the West’s own policymakers who admit Iran and its allies are simply reacting to a concerted campaign of encirclement, economic sanctions, covert military aggression, political subversion, and even terrorism aimed at establishing Western hegemony across the region at the expense of Iranian sovereignty.

Saudi Arabia’s Imperative Lacks Legitimacy 

The unelected hereditary regime ruling over Saudi Arabia, a nation notorious for egregious human rights abuses, and a land utterly devoid of even a semblance of what is referred to as “human rights,” is now posing as arbiter of which government in neighboring Yemen is “legitimate” and which is not, to the extent of which it is prepared to use military force to restore the former over the latter.

The United States providing support for the Saudi regime is designed to lend legitimacy to what would otherwise be a difficult narrative to sell. However, the United States itself has suffered from an increasing deficit in its own legitimacy and moral authority.

Most ironic of all, US and Saudi-backed sectarian extremists, including Al Qaeda in Yemen, had served as proxy forces meant to keep Houthi militias in check by proxy so the need for a direct military intervention such as the one now unfolding would not be necessary. This means that Saudi Arabia and the US are intervening in Yemen only after the terrorists they were supporting were overwhelmed and the regime they were propping up collapsed.

In reality, Saudi Arabia’s and the United States’ rhetoric aside, a brutal regional regime meddled in Yemen and lost, and now the aspiring global hemegon sponsoring it from abroad has ordered it to intervene directly and clean up its mess.

Saudi Arabia’s Dangerous Gamble 

The aerial assault on Yemen is meant to impress upon onlookers Saudi military might. A ground contingent might also attempt to quickly sweep in and panic Houthi fighters into folding. Barring a quick victory built on psychologically overwhelming Houthi fighters, Saudi Arabia risks enveloping itself in a conflict that could easily escape out from under the military machine the US has built for it.

It is too early to tell how the military operation will play out and how far the Saudis and their US sponsors will go to reassert themselves over Yemen. However, that the Houthis have outmatched combined US-Saudi proxy forces right on Riyadh’s doorstep indicates an operational capacity that may not only survive the current Saudi assault, but be strengthened by it.

Reports that Houthi fighters have employed captured Yemeni warplanes further bolsters this notion – revealing tactical, operational, and strategic sophistication that may well know how to weather whatever the Saudis have to throw at it, and come back stronger.

What may result is a conflict that spills over Yemen’s borders and into Saudi Arabia proper. Whatever dark secrets the Western media’s decades of self-censorship regarding the true sociopolitical nature of Saudi Arabia will become apparent when the people of the Arabian peninsula must choose to risk their lives fighting for a Western client regime, or take a piece of the peninsula for themselves.

Additionally, a transfer of resources and fighters arrayed under the flag of the so-called “Islamic State” and Al Qaeda from Syria to the Arabian Peninsula will further indicate that the US and its regional allies have been behind the chaos and atrocities carried out in the Levant for the past 4 years. Such revelations will only further undermine the moral imperative of the West and its regional allies, which in turn will further sabotage their efforts to rally support for an increasingly desperate battle they themselves conspired to start.

America’s Shrinking Legitimacy 

It was just earlier this month when the United States reminded the world of Russia’s “invasion” of Crimea. Despite having destabilized Ukraine with a violent, armed insurrection in Kiev, for the purpose of expanding NATO deeper into Eastern Europe and further encircling Russia, the West insisted that Russia had and  still has no mandate to intervene in any way in neighboring Ukraine. Ukraine’s affairs, the United States insists, are the Ukrainians’ to determine. Clearly, the US meant this only in as far as Ukrainians determined things in ways that suited US interests.

This is ever more evident now in Yemen, where the Yemeni people are not being allowed to determine their own affairs. Everything up to and including military invasion has been reserved specifically to ensure that the people of Yemen do not determine things for themselves, clearly, because it does not suit US interests.

Such naked hypocrisy will be duly noted by the global public and across diplomatic circles. The West’s inability to maintain a cohesive narrative is a growing sign of weakness. Shareholders in the global enterprise the West is engaged in may see such weakness as a cause to divest – or at the very least – a cause to diversify toward other enterprises. Such enterprises may include Russia and China’s mulipolar world. The vanishing of Western global hegemony will be done in destructive conflict waged in desperation and spite.

Today, that desperation and spite befalls Yemen.

 

HERE IS TODAY’S JOKE: “Haftar holds the key to peace in Libya”


HERE IS TODAY’S JOKE: “Haftar holds the key to peace in Libya”

The Middle East Eye has an article written by Mattias Toaldo who is policy fellow in the Middle East and North Africa Programme at the European Council on Foreign Relations and thinks he knows Libya very well.

Haftar showing his feminine side

Haftar showing his feminine side

He say’s :The UN Special Envoy for Libya Bernardino Leon (by the way he is a Muslim Brotherhood and in these talks are only the militias and Muslim Brotherhood) announced this week that the factions he gathered in Morocco could be very close to signing a national unity deal, leading to a consensus government for which names are being discussed. Yet, regardless of the outcome of those talks, the real kingmaker of Libya’s civil war will remain Khalifa Haftar, the man who started it and the only man who can stop it.” Now let me explain Haftar did not begin anything he was coached by the CIA in February 2014 to do a coup de eta which was not successful and he run away for his life and hid behind the skirts of the US ambassador Deborah Jones who kept him in-house for a couple of months till she could ship him to Benghazi. To try a second coup which again was not successful but got some people from the Libyan army to follow him. He was given assistance by the USA and allies to go forward but gave up on him from the moment he started loosing and always running away from any battle. Hafter is also responsible of a whole village killing Libyan civilians in Benghazi in the summer of 2014. Nobody supports him even though HoR put him as a head of the military, we all know he is a traitor and does not love Libya, he does not have the strength or the balls of Qaddafi may he rest in peace. NO LIBYAN TRUSTS HIM, he can try but he will never be trusted, he has too much Libyan blood in his hands.

He continues to say “For some months now, UN-led negotiations in Libya have moved in parallel with the fighting. The latter track has obviously hampered the former, as different eruptions of violence have from time to time delayed or even blocked the talks brokered by Leon.” but the eruptions as he puts it are no eruptions but cleaning the terrorist militias that “Leon”is supporting and its done by the tribes who are cleaning the mess “Leon and his friends” are supporting. “This collision between talks and fighting is not an accident but rather part of a deliberate strategy. Nowhere was this clearer than on Friday 20 March, when a military offensive was declared on the same day in which talks were due to resume in Morocco. The eastern-based, internationally recognised government of Abdullah al-Thinni and its “top military commander” Khalifa Haftar stated that the goal of the offensive was to recapture Tripoli.” What Matias is not saying here is that Tripoli has been hold captive since August 2014 by the militias of Muslim Brotherhood which include Libya Dawn, Sunrise, Al Qaeda, Isis/Daesh which the leader is Abdulhakim Belahj, governor of Tripoli installed by NATO and the Islamic Armed Movement(H.M.S) and its leader is Hassi the taxi driver from United States plus a CIA asset. Al Thinni is doing everything in his power to bring peace in Libya but the US with its allies and UN do not want peace with the democratic elected government and that is why the ban of arms is not lifted, also Al Thini was warned by them not to put Heftar as a top military reason was not given and the PM did not oblige but did what he thought is necessary which speaks volumes about his act to dismiss their warning.

“As part of this onslaught, Tripoli’s only remaining airport of Maitiga was hit. This facility is civilian, although according to a recent UN report, some of the commercial flights coming in from Turkey had been used in the past to smuggle small weapons to the militias now in control of the city.” It’s amazing how you can manipulate the truth, the military airport Metiga was rightly HIT because it did not bring “small weapons” but a full load of arms, military cars, terrorists who are willing to fight for the right price, from my own experience traveling from Istanbul to Metiga I did not get my suitcase because on the flight in its cargo instead of having our luggage was fully filled with ammunition and arms, when we complained we were nearly put in jail. “According to a recent UN report” is absolute bull as its trying to cover it up that they are not supporting Muslim Brotherhood.

“Prime Minister Thinni had abandoned the capital last summer, in the midst of the fighting between the militias of Zintan – which previously controlled the city – and those coming mostly from Misrata that eventually gained control of Tripoli after destroying its international airport.” Again a whole of misinformation, Matias either he has no idea of the facts or he is purposely misinforming the facts. The HoR abandoned the capital because through the Muslim Brotherhood and Libyan Dawn were harassing and threatening their livelihood together with their families and the reason for this was that the Muslim Brotherhood had lost the elections in June 2014 and the USA together with MB would not allow this. As for the destruction of the International airport it was the doing of Libyan Dawn who come from Misurata as they wanted the airport to be able to bring more arms and terrorists. Libyan Dawn broke the agreement with the Zintan after 24 hours as the Libyan Dawn wanted by all means to get the international airport as it brought in a lot of money… so that they could finance their militias. While Libyan Dawn could not get a hold of the airport they decided to destroy it by hitting the petroleum deposits causing one of the biggest disasters to the ECO SYSTEM. We have to thank the Libyan dawnshits together with the UN/FUKUS  for supporting them instead of supporting the legal government.

“Hitting civilian airports is against international law and yet too many “military commanders” have gotten away with it – starting with those responsible for the events of last summer. This occurred despite a specific UN Security Council Resolution (2174) allowed for issuing individual sanctions against those responsible for violating international law and human rights.” Now really his talking BS what International law? Where was the international law when NATO was BOMBING US WITH DEPLETED URANIUM? BOMBING SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS, INFRASTRUCTURE, WATER RESERVES AND WATER PUMPS? WHEN IT WAS KILLING INNOCENT CHILDREN, WOMEN AND OLD MEN? He is talking about the UN security council resolution and sanctions for what? The torture to death that these militias did to prisoners of war? The continuing of kidnapping, rapping, killing innocent civilians??? Is this man for real? When you talk about International law it has to work for everything not to choose on what  you are going to sanction.. 

“Haftar’s sense of impunity in leading successive attacks against Tripoli’s civilian airport is further heightened by a powerful web of international patrons and by the current political situation in Libya.” please get a grip of yourself what successive attacks if it wasn’t for the Libyan tribes…. to afraid to mention about the tribes and what they are doing and hiding behind Heftar? really?

“Ultimately, the Thinni government, sitting in Tobruk, has increasingly come to represent just one side of the civil war. This was particularly evident after the gradual integration with Operation Dignity, launched in May 2014 by Haftar himself with the aim of uprooting Islamists of all stripes from Libya.” what a load of crap, what operation dignity? you mean operation of wimps because Hafter did nothing but kill innocent people. Hafter could not uproot any Islamists if it hit him in the face… he is no leader but a wimp has no power over people continues to run to his mummy the CIA and complain while he has shitted his pants from fear, his NO QADDAFI and never will be so stop trying to make him look like a hero because he is nothing but a Judas and will always remain a Judas.

He keeps on saying that Hafter has powerful friends Like Italy and France which I doubt that. One thing I can say about Matias his trying very hard to portray Hafter as a leader and that he is one of the main links for the discussions with UN but unfortunately that is not true.. The Leaders who are controlling the scene are the Tribes and only the tribes will be able to control Libya and bring peace, the sooner the UN and its allies realize this the better for the Libyan people. No Hafter, Hassi or any other asshole could control Libya not even Isis/Daesh and Libyan Dawn. The Libyan race it’s completely different race than the other Arab countries the only thing that is tying us with them is the religion we have nothing in common with them and that is why NO MILITIA, ISIS/DAESH, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WILL NOT SURVIVE IN LIBYA. We are tribal people it may take us another 50 years to get rid of the colonizers but we will get rid of them or we will die trying.
