WHY ENGLAND AND THE UNITED STATES VETOED IN NOT LIFTING THE SANCTIONS: WEAPONS SALES IS GOOD BUSINESS


WHY ENGLAND AND THE UNITED STATES VETOED IN NOT LIFTING THE SANCTIONS: WEAPONS SALES IS GOOD BUSINESS

Hundreds of tonnes of weapons are pouring into Libya by land, sea and air to fuel its civil war, a UN sanctions committee report came out this week.

In the most comprehensive report ever made public on Libya’s arms imports, a panel of experts set up by the UN Security Council says the country is awash with weapons, unchecked by an international embargo.

The providers include companies from Belarus, Bulgaria, Egypt, Hungary, Ukraine, Greece, Jordan, Sudan, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Qatar and Turkey.

The report, delivered to the UN Security Council in February and made public, lists weapons imports ranging from pistols to Mig fighter jets, all violating an embargo ordered by the UN in 2011.

It portrays a country in anarchy with militias battling one another amid a rising tide of casualties and the absence of embargo enforcement means “continuing large scale illicit trafficking is inevitable.”  ****(While America, UK, Qatar and Turkey are getting richer with arms dealing and is with the blessing of the UN there is no other explanation why they do not lift the ban so that the National Libyan Army can get rid of the terrorists. In the list that is mentioned above (Egypt and the United Arab Emirates are assisting the National Libyan Army together withe the international recognized government which is situated in Tobruk) and the rest of the list are assisting the Militias ie ISIS/DAESH, LIFG, LIBYAN DAWN, SUNRISE, AL QAEDA, HASSI’s GROUP NAMED ISLAMIC ARMED MOVEMENT AND LETS NOT FORGET THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD. The irony of the UN is that its concerned but does nothing to stop it and INSISTS that Al-Thinis government has to sit down and discuss with the terrorists and force a unity…. something that the democratic elected government refuses.)

The report castigate UN member states for poor controls, in one instance recording a passenger telling inspectors he watched ammunition boxes unloaded from an Afriquiya flight on 17 September last year after it arrived in Tripoli from Istanbul. “When passengers protested about their luggage being left behind in Istanbul the militia, controlled a well-known Fajr (Libya Dawn) commander and overseeing he unloading of the boxes, ordered them to leave the airport,” the report says.

Egypt, meanwhile, is accused of sending jets and a helicopter, with photos published indicating Egyptian helicopters are now in use in Libya. The panel noted a “significant increase in the capacity of the air force in the past few months,” saying “while some of the aircraft have been refurbished in Libya it appears that some aircraft and spare parts have been obtained from abroad.” ****(Yes we have to charge Egypt for protecting its borders from the psychopath terrorists of trying to enter Egypt plus we have to charge the for assisting the government to get rid of the terrorists for spoiling their arms dealing and weaving and all these companies are loosing money by Egypt. Shame on you…. ITS NOT ENOUGH THAT THE UN AND NATO DESTROYED LIBYA THEY ARE SHAMELESS IN BEING ANGRY WITH COUNTRIES WHO WANT TO HELP LIBYA TO GET BACK ON ITS OWN TWO FEET.)

Some states are said to be complicit in the trade. “While the Panel is still seeking conclusive evidence, its investigations indicate that military material currently entering Libya is sponsored by a number of (UN) member states,” it concludes. ****(We have sent conclusive evidence to the UN and it does show very clearly that they are sponsored by a number of the UN members states in arming illegally the militias and the Muslim brotherhood just see all the videos of Derna, Tripoli and other smaller cities with new Cruiser Toyota cars and guns and the UN needs more proof, Really??????)

“To date, despite the violations reported in the Panel’s three previous reports, no action has been taken against most of the violators. What is more, some have been involved in further violations.”

Weapons imports include hundreds of tonnes of ammunition and millions of bullets.

The picture it paints of Libya is bleak, saying militias are paid by the state with some also supplementing their income through bank robberies, kidnap-for-ransom and people-trafficking.

One of the many lists in July 2013 order with Belarus for “more than 3,000 tonnes of ammunition for small arms and light weapons. The end-user certificate was signed by Khaled Al-Sharif, [the former deputy defence minister who belongs to Muslim Brotherhood and is very well-connected with terrorist militias also he is a very good friend with Bernard Levi had secret meetings with him in Sabratha] and the deal was brokered by Slobodan Tesic through Chariso Limited.”

Many of the weapons go straight back out again, and have “reinforced the military capacity of terrorist groups operating in different parts of the region, including Algeria, Egypt, Mali and Tunisia.”

The European Union is revealed to have had guns and ammunition sent to its security detail stolen at Tripoli National airport last April including 20 rifles, 70 handguns and 42,000 rounds of ammunition.

The panel accuses the United Nations Special Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) of failing to facilitate travel in Libya for the experts, despite persistent requests.

In evidence that may form the basis of war crimes prosecutions, it names a series of militia leaders in Tripoli responsible for torture and mistreatment in detention centres.

The panel also lays bear the chaos in Libya’s finances, saying that 1.7 million of Libya’s 6 million population are paid by the central bank as public employees, including militia members.

Some successes have been noted, including the seizure by Greece of a Turkish vessel with 1,103 tonnes of ammunition bound for Libya from a Ukrainian company.

The panel calls for the UN to set up a naval “monitoring force” to screen merchant ships for weapons, along with the establishment of “safe areas” to give civilians refuge from attacks.

But to date the UN, which first received the report a month ago, has given no indication of following the recommendations. Nor is it clear what happens next. This is the last report of the sanctions committee. Its tenure was extended under last summer’s UN Security Council resolution 2174, promoted at the time as “tightening” a sanctions regime that its experts say is being comprehensively violated.

FINALLY NATO ADMITS:NATO to overthrow regime of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was a mistake


FINALLY NATO ADMITS:NATO to overthrow regime of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was a mistake

cropped-aboiyuocaaajwcu2.png

RT Arabic writes:

Said a senior official at NATO, Wednesday, March 4 / March, the NATO military intervention in Libya to topple Colonel Muammar Qaddafi’s regime in 2011 was a mistake.

***(Better late than never to recognize the big mistake NATO and its allies did. Does that mean they are going to pay back the damages? Restore everything as it was? Bring Qaddafi back from the dead? Get rid of the terrorists? Or by admitting their mistake they are preparing for a new attack?)

The official said during talks with members of the Algerian delegation from the National Assembly will visit NATO Beruksl Treaty Organization, the international military intervention in Libya in 2011 was a grave mistake committed by the international community and the Libyans, ruling out a new intervention in Libya.

According to the agency APS, the official has confirmed the absence of follow-up, after the military intervention, in order to stabilize the situation in Libya, stressing that any new intervention will be more difficult than it has been in 2011.

Through the administrator in the context of talking about the NATO is ready to provide support in order to improve the security situation in the Libyan territory. ****(Here NATO is lying because NATO’s bosses which are (F.UK.US) vetoed the lifting of the ban for arming the Libyan military they will only lift it if the government of Tobruk unites with the Muslim Brotherhood/ Daesh/ AlQaeda/HMS which holds captive the Capital of Libya Tripoli. NATO AND THEIR BOSSES know this will never happen as the international recognized government in Tobruk will never accept to sit with TERRORISTS KNOWN WORLDWIDE…. so how will NATO provide support? From my informants in and out of NATO they say the will provide support to Hassi’s illegal government who belongs to ISLAMIC ARMED MOVEMENT(HMS) and Muslim brotherhood which they hold captive Tripoli… so in the long run although they admit their mistake they keep doing the same mistake. They do not want to see Libya independent EVER AGAIN.)

Algerian Minister Delegate in charge of the affairs of the Arab Maghreb and Africa, Abdelkader Messahel, said that the West bears the full responsibility for the outcome of the Libya shambles, stressing that Algeria had repeatedly warned of a military intervention.

Experiencing Libya since the fall of the late Colonel Muammar Gaddafi regime, in 2011, deterioration in the security situation due to the armed conflict between several parties, in addition to the control of armed militias on different areas of the country, and the Libyan scene grew complicated after the emergence of the organization of the Islamic State “Daash” and his quest for control at several places.

West failing in Libya


West failing in Libya

by Richard Galustian

TIMES OF MALTA.COM

The barbaric terrorist organisation, Isis (Islamic State) declared its war on Libya and Egypt last week with its ‘Message signed in blood to the Christian nation’.

If there was ever a time for the West to support Libyan Prime Minister Abdullah Al Thinni’s democratically-elected, internationally-recognised government in Tobruk, it should have been now.

In an address to the United Nations Security Council last Wednesday, Libya’s Foreign Minister, Mohammed al-Dairi, called on the international community to help Libya combat Isis by allowing it to build its national army: “This would come through a lifting of the embargo on weapons, so that our army can receive material and weapons, so as to deal with this rampant terrorism.”

Yet, despite this plea to the UN, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said: “The problem is that there isn’t a government in Libya that is effective and in control of its territory. There isn’t a Libyan military which the international community can effectively support.”

He also claimed that “the first condition has to be the creation of a government of national unity… then the international community needs to rally very quickly around that government of national unity and ensure that it has the means to deal with terrorism”.

The demand from London (reiterated by Washington) for a unity government is something that Libyans will inevitably fail to achieve and just buys Isis more time to seize Libyan territory. It represents a gross error of judgement by the UK, in particular, which threatened to use its veto in the UN Security Council.

Don’t the UK and the US realise that recent events in Libya pose a real and imminent threat to Europe and all western interests?

In addition to the obvious arms needed to defeat Isis, there is clearly a requirement by the Libyan air force for air lift transport planes and helicopters if only for humanitarian missions across the length and breadth of the vast country.

In addition, there is a need for used fighters that could be satisfied from friendly Arab countries.

Moreover, there are requirements for fast patrol craft for maritime surveillance operations given the huge numbers of illegal refugees flowing to southern Europe.

So Libya has no time to waste.

In 2013, while attending Idex, the world’ largest defence exhibition in Abu Dhabi, Abd El Nasser Busnina, a senior air force officer and prominent leader of the February revolution four years ago, said: “We have 2,000 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline to defend and six borders with African countries… We need to rebuild our armed forces. The equipment we have is old and in need of repair.”

Those words are as true today as they were two years ago.

It’s interesting to note that Busnina is undergoing advanced officer training at a US war college and will be one of a handful of American-trained officers to return to Libya in 2016.

Russia wants to fill the void left in Libya by the Americans and the British and supply arms directly to Tobruk, something Moscow is already doing indirectly through Egypt.

This helps Russia widen its sphere of influence throughout the Mena region.

It is important to remember that the Libyan air force is mostly of Russian and former Eastern bloc origin.

The US and the UK must alter their policies so that North Africa remains in the Western camp or, alternatively, resign themselves to cede a part of North Africa to Russia and certain EU countries commercially, politically and militarily.

A notable exception in the West is the French, who seem to have understood the dynamics of the Maghreb, in common with the Russians.

Paris, of course, is already fully engaged in the Maghreb and Mena region, from Mali to the Arabian Gulf, with the appropriate force structure, sales and what looks like a thought-out strategy.

France’s coup in selling its Rafale fifth generation fighters to Egypt last week inevitably will create a domino effect of similar extremely valuable contracts for France from other countries in the Middle East.

Libya is the Maghreb country most in immediate danger, with the tragic miscalculation by the West, which continues to talk to Tripoli’s rebel Dawn coalition.

This is coupled with the UK’s and America’s decision to reject the Libyan government’s plea for a lifting of the arms embargo to fight IS and the consequence of trying to impose a ‘unity government’.

This would effectively force the existing democratically-elected Tobruk government to resign, which it will resist, and could be the trigger that starts a process of partitioning the country into two states. Shame and blame on the international community falls squarely on the shoulders of the West if that occurs.

All these developments in the Maghreb region, particularly in Libya, should be of great and immediate concern to Malta.

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.

 

 

Castro calls out Obama for genocide in Libya


Castro calls out Obama for genocide in Libya

Fidel Castro is calling out US President Barack Obama for his words before world leaders last week at the United Nations in New York City.

According to Castro, Obama misrepresented the wars America has involved itself in, calling his speech before the United Nations last week gibberish and blaming the US and NATO for the mass murders of the Libyan people.

“In spite of the shameful monopoly of the mass information media and the fascist methods of the United States and its allies to confuse and deceive world opinion, the resistance of the people grows, and that can be appreciated in the debates being produced in the United Nations,” Castro wrote over the weekend on the cubadebate.cu website.

Speaking before the UN’s General Assembly last week, President Obama called the dictatorship of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi a “mass atrocity” that went unchallenged throughout his rule, but said that the United Nation was able to bring to help bring it to a halt.

“The Security Council authorized all necessary measures to prevent a massacre,” said Obama. “The Arab League called for this effort; Arab nations joined a NATO-led coalition that halted Qaddafi’s forces in their tracks.”

Castro, however, believes that Obama and NATO orchestrated an assault on the Libyan that is being skewed through the commander-in-chief’s own explanation. “Who understands this gibberish of the President of the United States in front of the General Assembly?” the former Cuban leader asks in an editorial published to the governmental website. “What position to adopt about the genocide of NATO in Libya? Does anyone wish it recorded that under their direction, the government of their country supported the monstrous crimes by the United States and its NATO allies?”

Castro isn’t the only one to question America’s intentions, too. The United State Congress has previously attacked Obama over his insistence on going to Libya. Earlier this summer, lawmaker Dennis Kucinich called out the president for heading overseas without congressional approval. “Since when does NATO trump the Constitution of the United States?” asked Kucinich. Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York similarly proposed “Shall the president, like the King of England, be a dictator on foreign policy?”
