Shocking Revelations: The Horrifying Truth About Libya

Shocking Revelations: The Horrifying Truth About Libya

by: Bobby Powell

The “revolution” in Libya was anything but a popular uprising. The “protestors” that overthrew Moammar Gadaffi were in fact al-Qaeda terrorists that had been unleashed on the country by the CIA under the direction of Barack Hussein Obama, and I prove this in this latest episode of The Truth Is Viral.

Even more shockingly, you will hear an exclusive TTiV interview with a NATO spokesman who states, for the record, that the reason Obama had given for intervening in Libya was an utter lie. Obama had claimed that Gadaffi was about to use chemical weapons on the “protestors,” when in fact he had been dispossessed of any WMD capability as early as 2003. NATO not only knew this, they were the ones who had been helping Gadaffi get rid of those weapons.

Barack Obama, however, is not one to let a few facts get in his way when it comes to implementing whatever evil agenda he wishes. Under orders from a cabal of international bankers Obama, who has been doing whatever he can to support radical Islamists across the Middle East, the CIA trained and equipped al-Qaeda terrorists and set them on a path of revolution that ended with a new Libyan Central Bank and the black flag of al-Qaeda flying over the Benghazi courthouse.

Assisted by NATO forces and Qatari Army Soldiers, and supplied with weapons by the Qataris, these al-Qaeda terrorists succeeded in removing the Libyan leader from power before brutally murdering him.

Now, the very same al-Qaeda terrorists Obama has been supporting since he lied during his first inauguration when he swore to support and defend the United States are tear-assing around Syria, wiping out entire Christian villages. Christians are being beheaded and crucified for their faith, their children forced to watch as the evil scum Obama loves so much use the heads of their parents as soccer balls before being dismembered and killed themselves.

And your tax dollars are supporting that horror.

Please share this episode of The Truth Is Viral in every way you can. Particularly, send it to every talking head you can think of at FOX news. At least they won’t have the excuse that they didn’t know. They know, believe me. We just have to let them know that WE know, hopefully shaming them into covering this story properly. Of course, since FOX News is more than 40% owned by the Saudi royal family (also sponsors of al-Qaeda,) that may be too much to hope for.

But we have to try.

God bless and Semper Fi,



A great project for the water in the villages of Libya

A great project for the water in the villages of Libya

By:  Vera Zasulich for GilGuySparks

The great man-made river, the largest and most ambitious project of the Jamahiriya, is a network of pipes that supplies the areas that had none before and the northern industrial, drinking water purer Libya through tanks groundwater from oasis located in the southern part of the country. According to independent experts, is the largest engineering project in the world that currently exists. Misunderstood the project, due to the fact that the Western media hardly reported on it, and in the meantime, the project has come at the cost of building the world’s largest: the project at the end it will cost $ 25 billion.

Gaddafi began working on the project in the 80s, and at the beginning of the current fighting, he was practically implementing it.

And this fact certainly suggests a thought, control over water resources is becoming the most important factor in world politics. The current war in Libya is the first war for drinking water?

The operation is based on the artificial river water harvesting in 4 huge water tanks located at Hamada, in the oasis of Kufra and Sirt Morzuk and containing about 35,000 cubic kilometers of artesian water. The volume of water could completely cover the territory of a country like Germany, with the depth of the tanks would be about 100 meters. And, according to recent studies, the Libyan artesian water sources will be sufficient for almost 5000 years.

In addition, this water project scale can be rightly called “the eighth wonder of the world” because it provides the transportation of 6.5 million cubic meters of water per day across the desert. 
The “lazy river” is not comparable to that provided by the Soviet leaders in Central Asia to irrigate cotton fields and that led to the disaster of the Aral Sea. The fundamental difference with the Libyan irrigation project for irrigation of agricultural land is used practically inexhaustible undercurrent rather than a source of surface water, easily subject to considerable damage in a short period of time. The tunnels were built to transport water through the use of 4000 km of steel pipes, buried deep in the earth. The artesian water from a reservoir is pumped from aquifers 270 to several hundred meters deep. One cubic meter of crystal clear water of the Libyan underground tanks, considering all the costs of production and transportation and storage at the Libyan coast was only 35 cents, which is roughly comparable to the cost of one cubic meter of cold water in the main cities of Russia, for example in Moscow. However, if you take into consideration the price of a cubic meter of drinking water in European countries (about 2 euro), it is estimated that the value of stocks of artesian water from underground storage tanks in Libya is a total of almost € 60 billion. When you consider that this amount continues to rise, as the price of the resource, it may be of interest even more important than oil, taking into account that you can study an alternative to oil.

Here are the key dates in the history of the Libyan irrigation project “great artificial river”, in 2008, Guinness has recognized as the largest in the world:

October 3, 1983 – has been called the General People’s Congress of Libya and has held a special meeting in which it was announced the start of the project funding.
August 28, 1984 – The leader of Libya lays in starting the construction of the project, the first stone. 
August 26, 1989 – begins the second phase of construction of the irrigation system.
September 11, 1989 – the ‘water enters the tank of Ajdabiya.
September 28, 1989 – the ‘water enters the reservoir Grand Omar Muktar. 
September 4, 1991 – the ‘water enters the tank Gardabiya. 
August 28, 1996 – the beginning of the daily distribution of water from the artificial river in Tripoli. 
September 28, 2007 – the water comes to Garian.

Interestingly, speaking at a commemoration of the start of construction of the river, on 1 September 2010, Al-Gadhafi said:

” Now that this result of the Libyan people has become clear, the threat of the United States against the double our country! “

Also, some years ago, Gaddafi had declared that the Libyan irrigation project would be ” the most serious response to America, who constantly accuses Libya of Islamist terrorism. “



How Gaddafi`s Great Man-Made River Project became part of the Water Wars

How Gaddafi`s Great Man-Made River Project became part of the Water Wars

From: Mathaba

It was Muammar Gaddafi`s dream to provide fresh water for all Libyans and to make Libya self-sufficient in food production.

Libyans called it the eighth wonder of the world. Western media called it a pet project and the pipe dream of a mad dog. The “mad dog” himself in 1991 prophetically said about the largest civil engineering venture in the world:

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.

Gaddafi’s dream

It was Muammar Gaddafi’s dream to provide fresh water for all Libyans and to make Libya self-sufficient in food production. In 1953, the search for new oilfields in the deserts of southern Libya led to the discovery not just of significant oil reserves, but also of vast quantities of fresh water trapped in the underlying strata. The four ancient water aquifers that were discovered, each had estimated capacities ranging between 4,800 and 20,000 cubic kilometers. Most of this water was collected between 38,000 and 14,000 years ago, though some pockets are believed to be only 7,000 years old.


After Gaddafi and the Free Unitary Officers seized power in a bloodless coup from the corrupt King Idris during the Al-Fateh Revolution in 1969, the Jamahiriya government nationalized the oil companies and spent much of the oil revenues to harness the supply of fresh water from the desert aquifers by putting in hundreds of bore wells. Large farms were established in southern Libya to encourage the people to move to the desert. It turned out that the majority of the people however preferred life in the northern coastal areas.

Therefore Gaddafi subsequently conceived a plan to bring the water to the people instead. The Libyan Jamahiriya government conducted the initial feasibility studies in 1974, and in 1983 the Great Man-Made River Authority was set up. This fully government funded project was designed in five phases, each of them largely separate in itself, but which eventually would combine to form an integrated system. As water in Gaddafi’s Libya was regarded to be a human right, there has not been any charge on the people, nor were any international loans needed for the almost $30 billion cost of the project.

In 1996, during the opening of Phase II of the Great Man-Made River Project, Gaddafi said:

This is the biggest answer to America and all the evil forces who accuse us of being concerned with terrorism. We are only concerned with peace and progress. America is against life and progress; it pushes the world toward darkness.

Development and destruction


At the time of the NATO-led war against Libya in 2011, three phases of the Great Man-Made River Project were completed. The first and largest phase, providing two million cubic metres of water a day along a 1,200 km pipeline to Benghazi and Sirte, was formally inaugurated in August 1991. Phase II includes the delivery of one million cubic meters of water a day to the western coastal belt and also supplies Tripoli. Phase III provides the planned expansion of the existing Phase I system, and supplies Tobruk and the coast from a new well-field.

The ‘rivers’ are a 4000-kilometer network of 4 meters diameter lined concrete pipes, buried below the desert sands to prevent evaporation. There are 1300 wells, 500,000 sections of pipe, 3700 kilometers of haul roads, and 250 million cubic meters of excavation. All material for the project was locally manufactured. Large reservoirs provide storage, and pumping stations control the flow into the cities.

The last two phases of the project should involve extending the distribution network together. When completed, the irrigation water from the Great Man-Made River would enable about 155,000 hectares of land to be cultivated. Or, as Gaddafi defined, the project would make the desert as green as the flag of the Libyan Jamahiriya.

In 1999, UNESCO accepted Libya’s offer to fund the Great Man-Made River International Water Prize, an award that rewards remarkable scientific research work on water usage in arid areas.

Many foreign nationals worked in Libya on the Great Man-Made River Project for decades. But after the start of NATO’s so-called humanitarian bombing of the North-African country in March 2011, most foreign workers have returned home. In July 2011, NATO not only bombed the Great Man-Made River water supply pipeline near Brega, but also destroyed the factory that produces the pipes to repair it, claiming in justification that it was used as “a military storage facility” and that “rockets were launched from there”. Six of the facility’s security guards were killed in the NATO attack, and the water supply for the 70% of the population who depend on the piped supply for personal use and for irrigation has been compromised with this damage to Libya’s vital infrastructure.

The construction on the last two phases of the Great Man-Made River Project were scheduled to continue over the next two decades, but NATO’s war on Libya has thrown the project’s future – and the well-being of the Libyan people – into great jeopardy.

A German language documentary shows the size and brilliance of the project:

Water Wars

Fresh clean water, as provided to the Libyans by the Great Man-Made River, is essential to all life forms. Without fresh water we simply cannot function. Right now, 40% of the global population has little to no access to clean water, and that figure is actually expected to jump to 50% by 2025. According to the United Nations Development Program 2007, global consumption of water is doubling every 20 years, more than twice the rate of human population growth. Simultaneously, every single year most of the major deserts around the world are becoming bigger and the amount of usable agricultural land in most areas is becoming smaller, while rivers, lakes and major underground aquifers around the globe are drying upexcept in Gaddafi’s Libya.

In the light of the current world developments, there is more to the NATO destruction of the Great Man-Made River Project than being an isolated war crime. The United Nations Environment Program 2007 describes a so-called “water for profit scheme”, which actively promotes the privatization and monopolization for the world’s water supplies by multinational corporations. Meanwhile the World Bank recently adopted a policy of water privatization and full-cost water pricing, with one of its former directors, Ismail Serageldin, stating: “The wars of the 21st century will be fought over water”.


In practice this means that the United Nations in collaboration with the World Bank plans to secure water resources to use at their disposal, and that once they totally control these resources, the resources become assets to be reallocated back to the enslaved nations for a price. Those prices will rise while the quality of the water will decrease, and fresh water sources will become less accessible to those who desperately need it. Simply put, one of the most effective ways to enslave the people is to take control of their basic daily needs and to take away their self-sufficiency.

How this relates to the NATO destruction of Gaddafi’s Great Man-Made River Project in July 2011 can be best illustrated by the Hegelian Dialectic, popularly known as the concept of Problem -> Reaction -> Solution. In this case, by bombing the water supply and the pipes factory, a Problem was created with an ulterior motive, namely to gain control over the most precious part of Libya’s infrastructure. Subsequently a Reaction in the form of an immediate widespread need was provoked as a result of the Problem, since as much as 70% of the Libyans depend on the Great Man-Made River for personal use as well as for the watering of the land. A month after the destruction of the Great Man-Made River, more than half of Libya was without running water. Ultimately a predetermined Solution was implemented: in order to have access to fresh water, the inhabitants of the war-torn country had no choice but to fully depend on – and thus to be enslaved to – the NATO-installed government.

A ‘democratic‘ and ‘democracy-bringing’ government that came to power through the wounding and killing of thousands of Libyans by ‘humanitarian bombs’, and that overthrow the ‘dictator’ whose dream it was to provide fresh water for all Libyans for free.

War is still peace, freedom is still slavery.

NATO War Crimes in Libya

Although the rationale of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) for entry into Libyan conflict invoked humanitarian principles, the results have proven far from humane. In July 2011, NATO aircraft bombed Libya’s main water supply facility, which provided water to approximately 70 percent of the nation’s population. And, in a failed attempt to appear unbiased and objective, the BBC has revealed, almost a year after the information was relayed by independent media, that British Special Forces played a key role in steering and supervising Libya’s “freedom fighters” to victory.
