British, French and American Operatives Assigned to Hunt Gaddafi Down and Kill Him


British and French Operatives Assigned to Hunt Gaddafi Down and Kill Him

 

In Mafia don fashion, UK PM David Cameron, French President Sarkozy  and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have dispatched assassins to kill Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. Remember what Hillary Clinton said when she arrived in Tripoli on the 18/10/2011

The British security service MI6 and France’s Directorate-General for External Security agents will hunt down the dictator in Operation Fire And Forget, The Daily Star reported earlier this week. News of the assassination plan was ignored by the corporate media in the United States.

The assassins speak Arabic and have lived in Libya for years, according to the report. “These agents if they get caught they will disappear and won’t survive an hour,” the paper quoted a senior security source.

Money is no object. It is estimated the operation may cost around a million pounds a week, the source said.

Government officials have sent conflicting messages on killing Gaddafi. In April,  French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé said it is not France’s objective to kill Gaddafi or his family.

The same month, British Defense Secretary Liam Fox said Gaddafi is a legitimate target if he does not give up as NATO and the United States demand.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on April 25 that U.S. Predator drones would be used to kill Gaddafi.

On April 24, appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” program, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham called for killing Gaddafi and bombing Tripoli.

Arizona Senator John McCain also called for killing Gaddafi and using more firepower against those who would resist militarily enforced regime change in their country.

In 2009, McCain praised Gaddafi for his peacemaking efforts in Africa and called for Congress to expand ties with him. Now he wants to kill him. *** So what is wrong with this picture? 2 years ago McCain was praising Qaddafi and in 2011 he said he was a legitimate target! Did McCain blackmailed Qaddafi??? Think about it… Qaddafi had paid Sarkozy for his presidential election, did McCain ask for the same treatment and Qaddafi refused? Or is McCain a Manchurian candidate who is brainwashed? But what we do know is that when Hillary arrived  to Tripoli on the 18th October with the Airforce One on the plane where very highly trained killers. As they landed these people where not seen they immediately blended with the Libyan (NTC) militias and they disappeared into the night the rest is history… here is the video where she admits but bites her tongue. This woman has only poisonous venom in her mouth and everything she touches dies. She is accountable for the cold blood murder of a leader as she is responsible for the murder of the Late Stevens and the death of other 3 well-trained soldiers who were trying to protect him. This is the woman who has nothing to show for achievements only  dead corpses who were against her policies. She is the one who will lead the Empire of the USA… God help us all….

 

 


Libya and “The Arab Spring”: Neoliberalism, “Regime Change” and NATO’s “Humanitarian Wars”

by Michel Chossudovsky, Finian Cunningham and Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya – November 2011 – GlobalResearch

 

INTRODUCTION

First in Global Research’s Interactive Reader Series, we bring to the attention of our readers a collection of Global Research articles on the “Arab Spring”, covering recent developments in several countries across the Middle East and North Africa region. The Interactive Reader is a collection of previously published articles on Global Research. Its objective is to provide an overview as well as a comparative understanding of country-level experiences of the upheavals.

This selection of articles is intended to dispel the notion that the “Arab Spring” is just a pro-democracy movement spreading spontaneously from country to country, opening the way to a meaningful change in the political and economic landscape. The term “Arab Spring” is itself a Western-imposed term conjured up by people who appear to have little understanding of the complexities and realities of the region.

The double-standards of the U.S. and the European Union have become visible during the course of these tumultuous events. Both the US and the EU have kept silent about the brutal repression of unarmed civilian protesters in the Persian Gulf sheikhdoms, such as Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, while, by contrast, the Western powers have vehemently pushed for conflict with Libya and Syria.

America is no “role model” of democratization for the Arab World, comprising some 22 countries with a combined population of 300 million. US military presence imposed on Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and other Arab countries over decades, coupled with Washington-inspired “free market” reforms, are the root cause of state violence.

Washington’s agenda for Egypt and Tunisia was to hijack the protest movement; what prevails in Egypt is the maintenance of a de facto military regime. In Tunisia, following the October 2011 parliamentary elections, the neoliberal policy framework remains unscathed.

From Washington’s standpoint, regime replacement no longer requires the installation of authoritarian military rulers, as in the heyday of US imperialism. Regime change can be implemented by co-opting political parties, financing civil society groups, infiltrating the protest movement, and by manipulating national elections.

The ultimate objective is to sustain the interests of foreign powers and to uphold the “Washington consensus” of the IMF/World Bank economic agenda that has served to impoverish millions throughout the Arab World and beyond.

Moreover, Western powers have used “Political Islam” –including the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda-affiliated groups– to pursue their hegemonic objectives. Covert operations are launched to weaken the secular state, foment sectarian violence and create social divisions throughout the Arab World.

In Libya, the “pro-democracy” rebels were led by Al Qaeda affiliated paramilitary brigades under the supervision of NATO Special Forces. The much-vaunted “Liberation” of Tripoli was carried out by former members of the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG)****(The leader of LIFG is Abdulhakim Belhaj MI6 asset and very close friend of the Late Ambassador Stevens, Hillary Clinton, Senator McCain and last but not least the UN representative in Libya “King Bernandino Leon” who gives orders and demands that the HoR international recognized government sits down and talk negotiations with the terrorist GNC holding captive the capital of Tripoli; which are: MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, LIBYAN DAWN/FAJR, SUNRISE, ISIS/DAESH, AL SHARAIA, AND ALL OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS. I ask you had your country been in situation like Libya would they sit down and negotiate with TERRORISTS?)

Destabilization of sovereign states through “regime change” is closely coordinated with military planning.

War preparations to attack Syria and Iran have been in an advanced state of readiness for several years. The road to Tehran goes through Damascus. A US/NATO-sponsored war on Iran would involve, as a first step, a destabilization campaign (“regime change”) including covert intelligence operations in support of rebel forces directed against the Syrian government.

A “humanitarian war” under the logo of “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P), as seen in Libya, is on the Western powers’ agenda for Syria. Such a venture would also contribute to the ongoing destabilization of Lebanon.

Were a military campaign to be waged against Syria, Israel would be directly or indirectly involved in military and intelligence operations. The hitherto covert role of Saudi Arabia and Turkey in destabilizing Syria would also emerge as open aggression towards long-time regional rival Iran.

A war on Syria could quite possibly ignite a conflagration across the entire Middle East and North Africa, with repercussions on a global scale: Iran’s historic allies, Russia and China, will be pitted against the US and NATO powers; and religious schisms across the region could vent into an explosion of internecine conflicts; also proxy wars currently being waged in East Africa by Western powers could escalate with untold human suffering in an already famine-hit region.

War plans directed against Syria are coordinated with those pertaining to Iran.

Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons programme is the pretext and the justification. Tehran is also identified as a “State sponsor of terrorism”, for allegedly supporting the Al Qaeda network.

In recent developments, what is unfolding is an integrated attack plan on Iran led by the US, with the participation of the United Kingdom and Israel.

The military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the World simultaneously.

Militarization at the global level is instrumented through the US military’s Unified Command structure: the entire planet is divided up into geographic Combatant Commands under the control of the Pentagon.

The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest. According to (former) NATO Commander General Wesley Clark, the Pentagon’s military road-map consists of a sequence of war theaters : “[The] five-year campaign plan [includes]… a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.”

What this collection of essays demonstrates is that Western intervention in this pivotal world region is far from the benign rhetoric frequently spouted in Washington, London, Paris and Berlin, espousing universal human rights and democratic freedoms. Rather, we are witnessing a neo-imperialist intervention that is self-serving, expedient and ultimately setting the world on a path of incalculable destruction.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is hiding from the press


Hillary Rodham Clinton is hiding from the press

An unknown artist placed a poster on a traffic signal in front of the building where Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign offices are located, Sunday, April 12, 2015 in the Brooklyn borough of New York. A top adviser to Clinton

By JOHN HAMMER

The spin is incredible.  Hillary Rodham Clinton announced her presidential bid via Twitter and a video, and the left-wing mainstream media have celebrated this as somehow better than making an announcement in front of a live audience.

Two reasons for announcing on Twitter and by video versus a live audience jump to mind.  One is the fear that she would be announcing at a half-full venue, unless it was someone’s living room, and the other is that Hillary Rodham Clinton is hiding from the press because even the most liberal mainstream media outlets can’t ignore the State Department email scandal.

There was no reason for Hillary Clinton to wipe the hard drive that held all of her State Department emails unless there was something to hide, and that something had to be bad enough for the Clinton team to determine that the bad press would still be better than revealing whatever was on that hard drive.  Of course, there is always the chance that those emails have been saved somewhere, it will just be harder to find them.

The argument by Hillary Clinton that the emails to State Department personnel are all archived by the State Department is just a lie because Hillary Clinton’s top aide while secretary of state, Huma Abedin, also had an email account on her server.  Certainly not all the emails between Hillary Clinton and Abedin were personal.  At some point they must have sent some emails back and forth that dealt with State Department business.  If not, why was the State Department paying Abedin a big salary even when she was only a part-time employee.

No doubt when some reporter finally gets the chance to shout a question at Hillary Clinton as she dashes from one private residence in Iowa to another, she will answer, “What difference does it make?”

The late New York Times columnist William Safire, who was an expert on the English language, branded Hillary Clinton a “congenital liar,” and it stuck.  Hillary Clinton is one of those rare people who would rather tell a lie than the truth.

It’s not just her missing emails that Hillary Clinton doesn’t want to answer questions about, she has been stumped by being asked what she accomplished as secretary of state.  The answer seems to be that she flew over one million miles.  Flying over a million miles in a government jet cost the American people a fortune, but what on earth did it accomplish?

She is the first secretary of state since 1978, during the administration of President Jimmy Carter, to have an ambassador killed in the line of duty, and her response to that death and the deaths of three other State Department employees was, “What difference does it make?”

Hillary Clinton has become the Major Major of the presidential race.  She claims to be open and transparent, yet she is hiding from the people.

For those of you who aren’t up on World War II fiction.  Major Major Major Major, referred to throughout the novel Catch-22 by Joseph Heller as Major Major, would allow his orderly to make an appointment for anyone to see him, but they could only see him when he was out.  They would wait and when Major Major had left his office they were allowed in and could stay until Major Major was coming back and then they had to leave before he arrived.

Major Major had been promoted to major by accident.  The army computer could not compute Private Major Major Major, so the computer promoted him to Major, much like Hillary Clinton is a presidential candidate, not because of anything she has done on her own, but because of the accident of her marriage.

Hillary “Major Major” Clinton says that she has nothing to hide about her career, including the huge ongoing email scandal.  But she has only held one press conference on that email scandal and reporters had to apply for credentials 24 hours in advance to get in the United Nations building where it was held.  Since the announcement was made less than 24 hours in advance and the UN did nothing to speed up the credentialing process, the press that was present was not made up of political reporters but UN reporters, and they were allowed a very limited number of questions.

Is the reporter from Turkey covering the UN really up on American politics?  Her only press conference on the issue has been in front of mostly foreign reporters.

Hillary Clinton made the announcement of her presidential bid by Twitter and a video.  No way the press can ask a video questions.  Then she gets in a van and starts traveling toward Iowa.

When is the big speech where she answers questions from the press?  She can’t hide for an entire presidential campaign, or can she?  The first time she ran for the Senate, she was still the first lady and she used her Secret Service detail to keep the press away from her.

So the press is free to ask Hillary Clinton any question it wants as long as nobody asks Hillary Clinton a question.

What is incredible is that the mainstream media have such undying love for the Clintons that the media are not up in arms over her treatment of them.

Hillary Clinton – who is paid $200,000 for a speech, owns two multimillion homes and has a net worth of over $25 million – is running a campaign based on trashing people who make a lot of money and identifying with the working poor.

Hillary Clinton has not driven a car in over 20 years.  It would be interesting to know the last time she was on a commercial flight.

Hopefully, during the campaign, some of the federal government employees who had to work for her, like members of her Secret Service contingent, will come forward with stories about how Hillary Clinton actually treats working men and women.  But the only place you will read those stories will be in conservative publications.

This is a woman who, while her husband was governor, borrowed $1,000 from a cattle futures investor and turned it into $100,000 in a matter of months by only making trades that were profitable.  She had to be guessing because she had no background in investing in the futures market, much less the cattle futures market, and the most amazing thing is that after making a 10,000 percent profit in a few months, she quit investing in cattle futures, forever.

This is a woman who has always been really interested in making money.  If you believe her story, she studied the cattle futures industry so thoroughly that she knew it far better than the top investors.  She took the $1,000 that she borrowed and by shrewd investments turned it into $100,000, but then didn’t use that vast knowledge of the cattle futures business to ever invest another dime in it.  If she is telling the truth, in a few more months she could have turned that $100,000 into $10 million, and inside of two years could have been worth $100 million, making all of her money worries go away.

When Hillary and Bill Clinton left the White House, according to Hillary Clinton they were “dead broke.”  That might explain why they stole the White House furniture, some of which they were forced to return.  But it doesn’t explain why she didn’t invest in cattle futures and make a few million to tide them over.

One thing is certain, the mainstream media are not going to delve into Hillary Clinton’s background like they do the Republican presidential candidates.

At her first, small group meeting, there were more press present in the room than supporters, and most of the press was kept outside.  There was no report that she answered a single question from the press.  But then again there was no report that she was asked any questions by the press, which dutifully stood behind the yellow tape strung across the room to keep the press as far from Hillary Clinton as possible.

Eventually some members of the press who are being treated so poorly by the Hillary Clinton campaign may get tired of being prevented from doing their jobs, even by a candidate most of them worship.

Can you imagine the outcry from the press if a Republican candidate tried to campaign without ever speaking to the press or answering a single question?  It would be front-page news in all the mainstream media outlets, but Hillary Clinton is allowed to do it, and so far there has barely been a whimper from the press.  Hopefully, at some point, the reporters covering Hillary Clinton will start trying to do their jobs, and it is not their job to do whatever the Hillary Clinton campaign tells them do.

Even President Barack Hussein Obama, who has run the most closed and opaque presidency in modern history, occasionally takes a few questions from the press.  Most of them are planted and screened in advance, but every now and then a real reporter steps up and asks a real question.

Everything Hillary Clinton does is so scripted that even supposedly impromptu remarks are written for her and probably put before a focus group before she says them.  Which makes the typo from the announcement she is running for president from her campaign committee particularly delightful.

Here it is: “From her mother’s own childhood—in which she was abandoned by her parents—to her work going door-to-door for the Children’s Defense Fund to battling to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program, she’s fought children and their families all her career.”

We added the bold italics, but the rest is copied and pasted from a press release.  It is really too rich.

Sen. Marco Rubio made the announcement that he is in the presidential race this week, and he seems to be on the right track, talking about not looking back but looking toward the future.  What he should go ahead and say is, does the US really want to be lead by an aging hippy, which is what Hillary Clinton is.

If Bill Clinton were not making millions giving speeches he would be a great candidate for one of those long white ponytails you see on men who were hippies in their youth, cut their hair and worked for 40 years and are now retired.  They can’t get their youth back, but at least they don’t have to cut their hair anymore.
