We are approaching the 10th anniversary of the horrendous atrocities of September 11, 2001, which, it is commonly held, changed the world. On May 1, the presumed mastermind of the crime, Osama bin Laden, was assassinated in Pakistan by a team of elite US commandos, Navy SEALs, after he was captured, unarmed and undefended, in Operation Geronimo. A number of analysts have observed that although bin Laden was finally killed, he won some major successes in his war against the US. "He repeatedly asserted that the only way to drive the US from the Muslim world and defeat its satraps was by drawing Americans into a series of small but expensive wars that would ultimately bankrupt them," Eric Margolis writes. "'Bleeding the US,' in his words. The United States, first under George W Bush and then Barack Obama, rushed right into bin Laden’s trap ...
By Jim Rossignol on September 27th, 2011 at 3:24 pm. Hey, everyone, please join in with the rest of the internet and laugh at ITV. They’ve only gone and made a documentary about Gadaffi’s links with the IRA, and then used footage from Arma II to illustrate it. “IRA Film 1988″ it says over a dodgy Frapsing of Arma II. No, they actually did that.
As promised by Mathaba, the liberation of Tripoli is underway. No matter the outcome in this round, the Jamahiriya never ceased to exist, and the world media, governments and organizations were all exposed, and stand naked on the wrong side of history CIA-NATO Headquarters Raided, Green Flag Flying On Wednesday 28th, mass demonstrations took place in Tripoli in favor of people’s power (jamahiriya) and the African Muslim revolutionary leader Muammar Qaddafi, liberator of humanity, author of The Green Book , advocate of the Third Universal Theory . The masses demonstrated against the terrorist mercenary foreign armed forces which have been occupying key areas of Tripoli since 5 weeks after massive non-stop bombing and missile attacks by the world’s strongest military forces, 40 countries which are bankrupt, including USA, Canada, England, France, and most of Europe.
Guinea Bissau Prime Minister Carlos Gomes Junior says Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi would be welcomed "with open arms" in the West African country. "If Gaddafi asks to come to Guinea Bissau we will welcome him with open arms and we will ensure his security," Gomes Junior was recorded as saying by radio station Radio Diffusion Portuguese (RDP). He made the statement to journalists while attending the inauguration of Cape Verde's new president Jorge Carlos Fonseca on Friday. However, in his speech of September 8, the Libyan leader vowed to stay in Libya, saying leaving is impossible: "We will never leave the land of our grandfathers".
By Tony Cartalucci - BLN Contributing Writer Despite desperate attempts by Wall Street and London to proclaim their intervention in Libya a success, even going as far as sending their political proxies Nicolas Sarkozy of France and David Cameron of the United Kingdom for a quick photo opportunity at the rebel held airport in contested Tripoli, vast swaths of the nation are still fiercely resisting NATO and their proxy rebel forces. This includes entire cities still standing in defiance against rebel attempts to "starve them out" and dozens of daily NATO airstrikes (NATO report for September 22) aimed at breaking the population's will to fight on.
Fidel Castro (AFP Photo / Adalberto Rooue) 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.
CIVILIANS pouring out of the besieged city of Sirte accused NATO of committing genocide yesterday as revolutionary forces reinforced their numbers and prepared for a new attack on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's home town. Long lines of civilian vehicles were seen leaving after a night punctuated by NATO air attacks. Forces fighting for the National Transitional Council (NTC) added their own artillery and mortar rounds at regular intervals. Civilians, many looking scared or sullen, said that conditions inside Sirte were "disastrous". They made claims which, if verified, offer a conundrum for Nato, which operates with a UN mandate on the need to protect civilian life. "It has been worse than awful," said Riab Safran, 28, as his car was searched by revolutionary fighters.
September 26, 2011 Despite the visit of British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolai Sarkozy to Libya on September 15, the struggle for the control of the oil-producing North African state of Libya is far from complete. Battles for the control of Bani Walid and Sirte illustrate that the people who support the government of Muammar Gaddafi still represent a disciplined fighting force against the U.S.-NATO fighter jets and military operatives who are backing the National Transitional Council (NTC) rebels. The visit of the leaders of Britain and France was carried out to demonstrate their support for the NTC rebels who have so far failed to pull together a provisional government.
