Libya Lies – Rape as a Weapon of War – Made in the USA?


Libya Lies – Rape as a Weapon of War – Made in the USA?

By Felicity Arbuthnot | Dissident Voice

It’s really 19th century behavior in the 21st century, you just don’t invade another country on phony pretexts in order to assert your interests.
— Secretary of State, John Kerry, “Meet the Press”,  March 2, 2014

Various professional psychology sites state succinctly: “Projection is a defense mechanism which involves taking our own unacceptable qualities or feelings and ascribing them to other people.”

Further: “Projection tends to come to the fore in normal people at times of crisis, personal or political, but is more commonly found in the neurotic or psychotic – in personalities functioning at a primitive level as in narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder”, opines Wiki.

With that in mind it is worth returning to the assault on Libya and the allegation by Susan Rice, then US Ambassador to the UN, in April 2011, that the Libyan government was issuing Viagra to its troops, instructing them to use rape as a weapon of terror.

However, reported Antiwar.com, MSNBC was told “by US military and intelligence officials that there is no basis for Rice’s claims. While rape has been reported as a ‘weapon’ in many conflicts, the US officials (said) they’ve seen no such reports out of Libya.”

Several diplomats also questioned Rice’s lack of evidence, suspecting she was attempting “to persuade doubters the conflict in Libya was not just a standard civil war but a much nastier fight in which Gaddafi is not afraid to order his troops to commit heinous acts.” ***(here is were everybody is making the same fatal mistake there was no civil war, there was a protest march were the protesters had guns killed 4 police officers and 2 soldiers, question to you readers what would your government do if your protesters had killed police officers?)

The story was reminiscent of the pack of lies which arguably sealed the 1991 US-led Iraq onslaught — of Iraqi troops leaving premature babies to die after stealing their incubators. The story, of course, was dreamt up by global public relations company, Hill and Knowlton Strategies, Inc., then described as the world’s largest PR company which had been retained by the Kuwait government.

A tearful hospital “volunteer”, Nayirah, gave “testimony” which reverberated around an appalled world. It transpired she was the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Washington and was neither a “volunteer”, “witness”, nor in Kuwait. Amnesty International obligingly backed up the fictional nonsense suffering lasting credibility damage.  However, as with Libya two decades later, Iraq’s fate was sealed.

The US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice and Foreign Affairs advisor, Samantha Power are credited with helping persuade President Obama to intervene in Libya. By the end of April 2011, Rice was also pushing for intervention in Syria, claiming that President Assad was “seeking Iranian assistance in repressing Syria’s citizens …” In the light of all, she vowed: “The United States will continue to stand up for democracy and respect for human rights, the universal rights that all human beings deserve in Syria and around the world.” (Guardian, April 29, 2011)

Looking across the world at the apocalyptic ruins of lives and nations resultant from America’s continuance in uninvited “standing up” for “democracy”, “human rights” and “universal rights” there are surely few who could not only silently weep.

Amnesty, perhaps “once bitten” not only questioned the Libya Viagra nonsense but denied it in categorical terms. According to Donatella Rovera, their Senior Crisis Response Advisor, who spent three months in Libya from the start of the crisis: “We have not found any evidence or a single victim of rape or a doctor who knew about somebody being raped.”

Liesel Gerntholtz, heading Womens Rights at Human Rights Watch, which also investigated the mass rape allegations, stated: “We have not been able to find evidence.”

The then Secretary of State, Hillary “We came, we saw, he died” Clinton, was “deeply concerned” stating that: “Rape, physical intimidation, sexual harassment and even so-called ‘virginity tests’ “were taking place not only in Libya, but “throughout the region.” Presumably leaving the way open for further plundering throughout Africa in the guise of bestowing “democracy”, “human rights” etc.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court obediently weighed in, telling a Press Conference of:  “ … information that there was a policy to rape in Libya those that were against the government. Apparently (Colonel Gaddafi) used it to punish people.” A bit of a blow for the impartiality and meticulous evidence of the ICC it might be thought.

A week after the bombing of Libya started in March 2011, Eman al-Obeidy burst in to a Tripoli hotel telling the international journalists there she had been raped. She was removed by Libyan security. Government spokespeople claimed she had mental health problems, was drunk, a thief, a prostitute and would be charged with slander. The world sneered.

By June 2011 Ms al-Obeidy had ended up in Boulder, Colorado, US, granted asylum with remarkable speed, with the help of Hillary Clinton, according to US news outlets.

In November 2014 al-Obeidy, now known as Eman Ali, was arrested for “violating conditions of her bail bond and probation.” It was her third arrest. Prosecutors allege that she tested positive for opiates and alcohol. The probation and bail bond relate to an alleged assault case in a Boulder bar with Ms al-Obeidy-Ali accused of pouring drink over a customer and then lobbing a glass at her.  The trial is scheduled for 17th February with the possibility of her asylum status being rescinded.

However, back to projection. It transpires that the Pentagon has been supplying Viagra to US troops since 1998. That year it spent $50 million to keep troops, well, stiffened up.  “The cost, roughly, of two Marine Corps Harrier jets or forty five Tomahawk cruise missiles …”

By 2014 the cost of extra-curricular military forces’ frolics had risen to an astonishing $504,816 of taxpayers money. An additional $17,000-plus was spent on two further erectile enhancing magic potions.

The Washington Free Beacon helpfully estimated: “that the amount of Viagra bought by the Pentagon last year could have supplied 80,770 hours, 33 minutes, and 36 seconds of sexual enhancement, assuming that erections don’t last longer than the 4 hour maximum advised by doctors.”

Surely coincidentally on February 14, St Valentine’s Day, Joachim Hagopian released an article: “Sexual Assault in the US Military – More Rapists Attend the Air Force Academy Than Any Other College in America.”

In a survey taken in 2012 “an unprecedented number” of over “26,000 incidents of unwanted sexual contact was reported by service men and women.” Further, weekly: “another high profile officer often in charge of reducing assaults was being investigated and charged himself.”

The US Air Force at Colorado Springs, writes Hagopian “has more rapists on Campus than any other college in the country.”

But then the US military planners would seem to be sex and bodily function obsessed. In 1994 they contemplated releasing pheromones (a hormonal stimulus) against enemy troops “to turn enemy soldiers into flaming love puppets whose objects of affection would be each other.”

“While enemy troops were preoccupied with making love instead of war …” America’s finest could blow them to bits. This bit of military dementia was dubbed the “gay bomb.”

Also dreamed up have been halitosis, flatulence and vomit-inducing chemicals to unleash on foes. Body function obsession clearly rules in the armed forces, officially and unofficially.

Projection: “ … is more commonly found … in personalities functioning at a primitive level.” Indeed. And to think both Saddam Hussein and Colonel Gaddafi were labeled mad by such as these.

The Most Important Moral Lesson of the 21st Century Is Known by Few!


The Most Important Moral Lesson of the 21st Century Is Known by Few!

by Jack Speer-Williams

Death and destruction of all life forms are the hallmarks of the military forces controlled by the foreign Banking and Monetary Cartel

The non-reporting of this story is a prime example of the deception designed to darken our souls with apathy and ignorance – an arrogant ignorance at that.

once-640x216

…. not so long ago, in a far away land, there lived a benign ruler of a diverse people, a people who had little history of being a territorially distinct nation. For many of the people in this country, their nation-state allegiances ended at the boundaries of their particular tribe.

The kindly ruler’s problems were exacerbated by the sheer size of his country – a whopping 1,760,000 square kilometers – and its disparate and aggressively autonomous tribal groupings were of no help either. How could anyone form these huge cultural differences into one cohesive nation?

In this hot dry land of mostly desert waste was the additional problem of food, which was always at a premium. More important yet was water, which was as valuable as gold. How could the head of such a country become a benign ruler of a people who had no sense of national unity and no willingness to come together as one people, one nation?

It is said that when the right man meets the right opportunity, miracles will occur. Such a man appeared: his name was Muammar Gaddafi. The opportunity was oil – lots of it. The country? It was Libya, in northern Africa on the Mediterranean Sea.

If anyone knows of a national leader who shared the wealth of his country’s resources with the people of his nation more than Colonel Gaddafi did, please tell me who that man is or was. For years, the banker owned and controlled press demonized Muammar Gaddafi; but what he accomplished for his people during that time period seems to be that of storybook legend.

It has been said, that Colonel Gaddafi was never happier than when he was in the desert, amongst his people, and was always traveling with his Bedouin tent. He was truly a man of his people.

LIBYA MAN MADE RIVER

LIBYA MAN MADE RIVER

And by operating his country outside the tight financial orbit controlled and owned by the pathological and morbid International Banking and Monetary Cartel, Gaddafi made his country and its people the richest in Africa. As a result, however, he made some very powerful enemies – those who will not tolerate any economically independent nations to exist.

It was, however, his plan to exchange his nation’s oil for gold (or a gold-backed currency), instead of the inflated US reserve currency that probably prompted his brutal killing.

Such men as Muammar Gaddafi only come our way once in a century, proof of which is how he stood up to the most potent, anti-life power on earth. But in time, the wolves circled and eliminated him, then blackened his name in history.

This short piece is my humble effort to give a great man a better eulogy.

Gaddafi’s government had its own wholly-owned central bank that issued loans to its people free of interest, as riba (usury) was not permitted in Libya at that time. This was, of course, serious sacrilege to the usurers of Earth and it peoples.

Beyond the nomadic Bedouin and Tuareg tribes, most Libyan families owned both a house and a car. Again, Colonel Gaddafi had to be eliminated as the banking cartel considers middle classes anywhere as threats to their power.

Before the fifty-plus daily US/NATO bombings of Libya, and its defenseless civilian populations began, Muammar Gaddafi’s government gave everyone free healthcare and education.

Libyans enjoyed a literacy rate of over eighty percent. Literacy and an education that teaches critical thinking was also a threat to the power structure. Had Colonel Gaddafi followed the American model of governmentally forced stimulus-response education, he might have bought himself a few more years of life.

Before the bombings, largely of American origin, life expectancy in Libya was seventy-five years, the highest in Africa, and about ten percent above the world average.

Preceding the US-led air attacks, there was little to no unemployment in Libya.

Note: The United States of America has long been under the heavy control of the International Banking/Monetary Cartel; and as a result, today, we have, at least, 92 million unemployed citizens.

One of the biggest lies ever promoted by the corporate press is “War is good for the economy.”

War destroys economies due to the extensive debt-based, usury lending involved. Strong economies are made by producing in abundance needed and wanted goods and services that are sold at home and around the world.

Production, not destruction, builds a healthy economy.

Libya was a nation that had the highest gross domestic product in Africa, with less than five percent of its population classified as poor.

Libya, a hot, dry, dusty country, long suffered with a lack of clean water. Under the leadership of Muammar Gaddafi, however, the world’s largest infrastructure project was completed. It was a man-made, underground river that provided clean drinking water to seventy percent of the Libyan people, and held the potential of turning vast wastelands into farmlands – that is, until US/NATO bombs destroyed its pumping stations, thus destroying the entire project.

In 1991, at the gala opening of the Man-made River Project, the good Colonel Gaddafi spoke to the invited dignitaries and assembled crowd:

“After this achievement, American threats against Libya will double. The United States will make excuses [but] the real reason is to stop this achievement, to keep the people of Libya oppressed.”

 The Colonel’s words were prophetic.

libyaAfter American super bombers laid waste to Libya’s water and electricity, the bombers destroyed the country’s main food supply.

Massacre of Native Camels

For many decades, beginning in the summer, thousands of camels made a three-month journey from the grasslands of Libya to metropolitan markets. Amid the horrifying wailing and whimpering from thousands of camels and herdsmen being mindlessly and thoroughly slaughtered, the US/NATO bombs fell until animal and human flesh were ready to rot in the hot Libyan deserts.

For months and years the American mainstream media had demonized Muammar Gaddafi, often saying the goal was to bring democracy to Libya by removing their dictator.

So how did the US government justify the barbarity of butchering thousands of camels, while people were starving all over the rest of Africa?

Perhaps you heard the absurd answer from your own television set:camel

“The camels were carrying weaponry to support those loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.”

Sadly many Americans were happy with that answer never realizing that certainly, during the dark of nights, Libyan troops could have quickly transported their weapons all over their country in a matter of days, not months.

Death and destruction of all life forms are the hallmarks of the military forces controlled by the foreign Banking and Monetary Cartel.

The awful destruction of the once free and independent Libya should serve us as a moral lesson, representative of our atrocities in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, where hundreds of millions of people have been killed, injured, or made homeless in a radioactive hotbed of chaotic waste, with no known way of cleaning it up.

For no military tactical or strategic reasons, depleted uranium (DU) has been employed in all of our bombings in the Middle East… And still, the Western press calls our insane international crimes against humanity humanitarian interventions.

I now ask my brothers and sisters in America and Europe to join with me in a prayer that the US/NATO axis of evil destruction desist from any more such humanitarian interventions.

NATO/UN Desperately Seek Ceasefire To Save ISIS After Syrian Army Encircles Aleppo


NATO/UN Desperately Seek Ceasefire To Save ISIS After Syrian Army Encircles Aleppo

by Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In a military victory that may very well rival the liberation of Qusayr in terms of significance, on February 17, the SAA officially encircled the entirety of Syria’s largest city Aleppo. In so doing, the SAA was also able to seal off the road leading into the city from the North which has been used as a supply route for the terrorist death squads receiving reinforcements and supplies from Turkey since the beginning of the crisis.

While not controlled by the Western-backed terrorist forces entirely, large portions of Aleppo have fallen under death squad control since NATO began backing jihadists forces in earnest in 2010. The Syrian military has long sought to establish control over the entirety of the city and, over the last several months, the SAA has been fighting to do just that. Over the last few weeks, however, the SAA was able to win a number of key battles and take control over a several key villages that enabled it to position itself all the way around Aleppo.

The encirclement of Aleppo comes as the SAA has launched a new offensive against death squad forces in the south, near the occupied Golan Heights and the Syrian/Israeli border.

Even the Huffington Post has been forced to admit that “If government forces succeed in fully besieging opposition-held areas, the move will pose the greatest threat to the rebels’ position in the area since anti-Assad fighters stormed parts of the city in 2012.”

 Conveniently, however, as the Syrian military is poised to make such a monumental victory over the Western-backed jihadists, the United Nations has announced its plans for a ceasefire in and around Aleppo.

The plan, spearheaded by UN envoy Steffan de Mistura has apparently been in the works for months – since about the time that the Syrian military began its encirclement operation around Aleppo.

De Mistura’s plan would involve a six-week truce and the halting of aerial bombardment and artillery shelling of Aleppo in all quarters of the city. De Mistura claims that he received assurances from Syrian President Assad that the Syrian government is willing to participate in the truce.

However, it is worth noting that the peace deal benefits only the death squad fighters funded by the West and operating on the ground inside the country, particularly those fighting inside Aleppo. For instance, the proposal seeks to end all aerial bombardment and artillery shelling of all quarters of the city – handcuffs that affect the Syrian military much more so than the death squads since the jihadists have no air force with which to bombard the city.

Also, while it is true that Western-backed insurgents often fire indiscriminately into civilian areas or target the Syrian military in government-held territory using artillery, the Syrian government is not bombarding the portion of the city that it holds itself – thus making the death squad held areas of Aleppo the main target for a ceasefire. After all, with the encirclement of the city, the terrorist-held areas of the city are now in a decidedly defensive position.

Few can deny that the proposed “truce” is very “convenient” in its timing from the point of view of NATO strategists. As Tony Cartalucci of Land Destroyer writes,

It is curious because talks of “truces” were completely absent just as recently as 2011, when both organizations, the UN and NATO, backed hordes of terrorists sweeping across Libya, committing abhorrent atrocities including the systematic, genocidal extermination of Libya’s black communities.

Indeed, NATO and UN peace treaties only seem to appear when the NATO terrorist proxies encounter serious trouble on the battlefield.

The United Nations peace plan is thus nothing more than an attempt to buy time for Western-backed jihadists to regroup, resupply, and re-strategize in hopes that some other “convenient” event take place in Syria that will break the encirclement in the meantime.

While peace is no doubt to be desired in Syria, Western powers should not be allowed to use the concept as a weapon against the Syrian government or the Syrian people.

The United States, UK, France, NATO, and the UN do not want peace. They want a reprieve for their proxy forces.

If the ISIS fighters encircled in Aleppo want peace, they should have the option of unconditional surrender. Amnesty, upon surrender, could also be discussed at the pleasure of the Syrian government.

Otherwise, the encirclement should continue and the liberation of Aleppo must necessarily follow.

Fake peace agreements and politically based “truces” are no longer acceptable and they are no longer credible in the eyes of any informed observer.

Only true and total peace, stability, and reconstruction are acceptable options for Syria.

CIA Contractor: We Fabricated ISIS


CIA Contractor: We Fabricated ISIS

Posted by  Sean Adl-Tabatabai   in  ,

Former CIA contractor Steven Kelley has said on record that ISIS/ISIL are a fabricated terrorist group made and funded by the CIA in the United States.

According to the video description:

“This is a completely fabricated enemy,” he said in a phone interview with Press TV from Anaheim, California on Thursday.

“The funding is completely from the United States and its allies and for people to think that this enemy is something that needs to be attacked in Syria or Iraq is a farce because obviously this is something that we create it, we control and only now it has become inconvenient for us to attack this group as a legitimate enemy,” Kelley added.

He made the remarks as US President Barack Obama is under pressure to seek congressional approval before expanding Washington’s military air campaign against ISIL targets from Iraq into neighboring Syria.

The Pentagon has already launched at least 100 airstrikes on ISIL positions in northern Iraq since Obama authorized the use of force against the terrorist group earlier this month.

The White House insists it does not need explicit congressional authorization for those operations because they are intended to protect American personnel and interests inside the Arab country.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Monday that Obama “will not hesitate to use his authority” to keep Americans safe, but added that the president was “committed to coordinating and consulting with Congress” on a decision to hit ISIL targets in Syria.

“If you want to get to the root of the problem and remove this organization, the first thing they need to do is to remove the funding and take care of entities responsible for the creation of this group,” Kelley said.

“I believe that this ISIS group would probably go away, would be easily defeated by the armies of [Syrian President] Bashar Assad,” he said.
