Libyan peace talks blocked by the U.S.

Len McCluskey: Libyan intervention should be halted and peace talks should be launched

6/4/2011 - The attack on Libya by British, French and US forces is wrong and should be halted without any further delay or futile loss of life, Len McCluskey, general secretary of Unite the Union, considers.

In his article published by The Guardian McCluskey writes: “I believe the present military intervention is a mistake which shows the lessons of Iraq have still not been learned.” Prolonging the conflict will surely lead to more civilian deaths at the hands of troops on both sides, in addition to those directly caused by the bombing, according to the author. The present action raises the alternative possibility of escalation, leading to military occupation of all or part of Libya. Similar occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan have shown how disastrous and counter-productive such interventions are, McCluskey reminds. “Escalation and "boots on the ground" will cost British soldiers' lives and will once more stoke up hostility to Britain across the Middle East and the Muslim world,” the author warns.

Rather than pumping up a civil war, coalition-members should be joining others in pushing for a ceasefire followed by international assistance in negotiating a better future for Libyans. “This could only lead to an extension of democracy in Libya at the very least, something that will be made harder by prolonged conflict” the author concludes.

Israel's ethnic cleansing plan

Since 2001, Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs and leader of Israel’s far right party, Avigdor Lieberman, proposes to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians. He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas.
Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.

Washington's support to ethnic cleansing and Apartheid of Israel

November 15, 2010 – ’U.S. President Barack Obama has praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US government also promised Israel that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated.’

The secret war in Libya: impeachment procedure ?

The White House is a pure facade for a so called ‘democratic’ America, with its imperialist wars and where millions live in poverty.

Why do the Americans need the White House if all of their government decisions are secret ?

———–

Obama lies again

While President Obama has insisted that no American ground troops join in the Libyan campaign, small groups of C.I.A. operatives have been working in Libya for several weeks and are part of a shadow force of Westerners that the Obama administration hopes can help set back Colonel Qaddafi’s military, the officials said.
The Central Intelligence Agency has inserted clandestine operatives into Libya to gather intelligence for military airstrikes and make contacts with rebels battling Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s forces, according to American officials.

Obama signs a secret order

31.3.2011 - President Obama has signed today a secret order authorising covert US support for the Libyan collaborators, Reuters reports, citing government sources. The CIA and the White House have declined immediate comment.

Faddis, a retired CIA operations officer and the former head of CIA’s WMD terrorism unit: ‘From July 2002 to May 2003, I was in charge of a CIA base in the mountains of Kurdistan, running intelligence collection operations and covert action directed at the regime of Saddam Hussein.  We had a host of missions to perform, but one of our key tasks was to persuade Iraqi military leaders to lay down their arms and come over to our side in advance of the American invasion of the country in the spring of 2003′.

Libyan NATO collaborators retreating

1956suezInvasion.jpg‎31.11.2011 - LIBYAN NATO COLLABORATORS RETREATING - NATO STILL BOMBING THE 'NO-FLY ZONE LIBYA'

The collaborators have been retreating from former strongholds along the eastern coast, and have lost the key oil port of Ras Lanuf and the nearby town of Bin Jawad, and are also in full retreat from Brega.
The White House has refused to comment on reports that US President Barack Obama has approved covert American support for the collaborators in Libya. Mr Obama has said only that he is considering arming the rebels.
Nato's Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has said he is 'opposed to the idea of arming Libyan rebels, stressing Nato is in the country to protect and not to arm Libyans', AFP reports. 
After the lies about the so called no-fly zone that was used for a military intervention in Libya and was well prepared by an international media-campaign, nobody believes the statements of NATO and U.S.
The NATO allies still hope for a civil war, military supported by bombings of NATO, in Libya.
Meanwhile, Syria's President Bashar al-Assad has well survived the organized political destabilization of his country.

NATO BOMBINGS IN YUGOSLAVIA (24.3- 19.4.1999)

From the onset of NATO aggression against our country up to 19 April 1999, the North Atlantic Alliance made over 7,000 criminal attacks against the territory of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. 700 warplanes, of which 530 combat planes, were used; more than 2000 cruise missiles were launched and over 6,000 tons of explosives were dropped.
About 500 civilians were killed and more than 4,000 sustained serious injuries e.g.  Three million children are endangered in our country as a result of war and bombardment by NATO. 
After these barbarian attacks hundreds of thousands citizens have been exposed to poisonous gasses which can have a lasting consequences on the health of the entire population and the environment. 
After the demolition of the Petrovaradin bridge, Novi Sad and Petrovaradin were cut of water supply (600 000 citizens) since the main and city pipeline was constructed into the bridge. About one million citizens in our country are short of water supply due to the bombardment of NATO.
About 500 000 workers became jobless due to the total destruction of industrial facilities all around the country. Two million citizens have no means for living and cannot ensure the minimum for existence. 
Overall material damage is enormous. Preliminary estimates indicate that barbaric air strikes of the NATO alliance, since the beginning of the unprovoked aggression on the SR of Yugoslavia, on industrial, commercial and civil facilities and structures, have incurred damages in excess of 10 billion dollars. In the territory of the northern province of Vojvodine alone, damages have been estimated in excess of 3,5 billion dollars.

Libya fights back: ship with aid for Gaza

Libya fights back: ship with aid for Gaza


Our Libyan Charity Foundation organized in June 2010 a ship with aid for Gaza. The ship was blocked by Israel, Greece (member of the NATO) and Egypt. 
Greece and Egypt are closely related to the U.S. and Israel. 
I don’t understand why everybody is demonizing my father. The U.S. are delivering for billions of dollars to Israel. Israel uses this money for weapons and air planes. All the U.N. resolutions critical of Israel. are actually blocked by the U.S. and its allies. That’s why Palestinian people are driven from their homes and why Gaza is bombed.

They accuse my father from bombing ‘his own people’… 
In 1986 the US launched air strikes on Libya.
At least 100 people have died after USA planes bombed targets in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, and the Benghazi region.

Bruxelles: Manifestation 'pour la paix en Libye'

'NiKhadafi,NIl'OTAN'.jpg

NOUS NE PARTICIPONS PAS AU MANIFESTATION 'POUR LA PAIX EN LIBYE'

Nous n'aimons pas le slogan 'Ni Khadafi, Ni l'OTAN' parce que la campagne médiatique avec le diabolisation de Khadafi était justement l'excuse de l'OTAN pour un soi-disant no-fly zone et une intervention militaire. 
C'était la même chose en Iraq, Yougoslavie et Afghanistan (et bientôt en Iran). 

-----

N'oubliez pas:

- En 1986, les États-Unis ont lancé des frappes aériennes sur la Libye.
Au moins 100 personnes sont mortes après que les avions américains ont bombardé des cibles dans la capitale libyenne, Tripoli, et dans la région de Benghazi. 
http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/april/15/newsid_3975000/3975455.stm

- La 'Libyan Charity Foundation' de Saif al-Islam, fils du colonel Mouammar Kadhafi, a organisé en Juin 2010, un navire avec une aide à Gaza. Le navire a été bloqué par Israël, la Grèce et l'Egypte. 
La Grèce est membre de l'OTAN. 
La Grèce et l'Egypte sont étroitement lié aux États-Unis et Israël. l'Egypte travaillait avec Israël à la construction du mur autour de la bande de Gaza et le gouvernement égyptien travaillait dans le programme 'anti-terroriste' du CIA qui est bien connu pour les enlèvements et la torture des activistes musulmans. 

- Tout le monde diabolise Khadafi. Au même temps Hillary Clinton était bienvenue en Egypte. Mais on cache que les États-Unis bloquent toutes les résolutions de l'ONU critique d'Israël et qu'ils sont directement responsables pour les bombardements sur Gaza.

Not afraid of Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton to Gadaffi's supporters: "Do you really want to be a pariah? Do you really want to end up in the international court?"

Our reply: We are not afraid of you Hillary. We don't accept your lies about the so called no-fly zone over Lybia and we are ready to end up in the international court.

Green imperialisme

sarkozy-cohn-bendit.jpg

GREEN IMPERIALISME - Daniel Cohn-Bendit, the president of the Green parliamentary group in the European Parliament, loves military interventions, as long as they satisfy imperial interests. His demand to impose a no-fly zone over Libya is only the first step. It would not be the first war which he would like others to fight for him; to this end he has been downplaying Nazi fascism for years: In 1993 he shouted at the Green party conference that war had to be waged against Yugoslavia because the Bosnian Muslims were a “part of European culture" and were "people with our same blood". In 1994 he seriously likened the situation in besieged Goražde with the Warsaw ghetto. Currently he is abusing the memory of the Spanish civil war, the crushing of the social revolution by the fascists, to justify a war against Libya: “… I know that every historical comparison is a bit silly, but still - [19]36 in Spain, we allowed the Germans, with Franco, to massacre the Republicans; it was horrendous, but the French, the English did nothing back then. I think that our generation should behave differently in this respect.”

No-fly zone Libya: role of Israel

It is clear that the Israeli government who does not speak of the genocide on the Palestinians, does not support Gaddafi.
This is not surprising. Israel is the main military ally of the United States, Great Britain and France who, for the reason of oil, want a complete control over the Middle East.

Israeli minister favours Libya no-fly zone

Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, seen here in 2009, has said he believes a no-fly zone should be imposed on Libya to stop a "danger of genocide".

AFP - Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Tuesday said he believed a no-fly zone should be imposed on Libya to stop a "danger of genocide".

Speaking at a conference in Brussels, Ayalon said international moves to impose a no-fly zone over Libya to stop Moamer Kadhafi using air strikes against his own people, had not been discussed by the Israeli government, but added:

"If you ask me personally, I think it should be imposed," he said.

There was "a danger of genocide" in Libya, he said.

"Morally we have to stop it", Ayalon said, adding "Its best to have the UN's okay."

US and European leaders have been weighing the use of NATO air power in a no-fly zone as Kadhafi fights a bloody rearguard action against encroaching rebels.

European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek: 'democratic transition'

European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek.A.Lieberman.jpg

Brussels, 2 March 2011 - "Europe has a historic duty today to support the people in their fight for freedom and democracy against authoritarianism, repression and human rights violations," said European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek in a special meeting of the Conference of Presidents on Wednesday.   The Parliament's political group leaders expressed their support for the efforts made by the High Representative and also argued that the EU should play the principal role in helping the countries of the region in their processes of democratic transition, and urged a strong EU effort to help them in financial and economic terms, as well. On Libya, some wondered whether there is any possibility for further imposition of sanctions against the Gaddafi regime.

Baghdad, February 25, 2011 - At least 19 people were killed in Iraq on Friday as tens of thousands defied an official curfew to join a nationwide "Day of Rage," echoing protests that have roiled the Middle East and North Africa since January.

Despite pleas by the government and Shiite religious leaders for Iraqis to stay home, demonstrators gathered by the hundreds and thousands from Basra in the south to Mosul and Kirkuk in the north.
Protesters expressed anger and rage at local leaders as well as at Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, storming provincial government offices in several cities and calling for more jobs, electricity and clean water, better pensions and medical care.
Security forces used tear gas, water cannons, sound bombs and at times live bullets to disperse the crowds. Fatalities were reported in Mosul, Fallujah, Tikrit and a town near Kirkuk, when security forces opened fire on demonstrators who were surrounding--or in some cases storming--government buildings. There were also clashes in Ramadi.
In the southern province of Basra, about 10,000 demonstrators forced the resignation of the provincial governor. In Fallujah, protesters forced the resignation of the entire city council.
In Baghdad, where Maliki imposed a curfew that banned cars and even bicycles from the streets, people walked, often many miles, to reach the city's Tahrir Square. Several thousand had gathered by early afternoon.
Surrounded by hundreds of police, soldiers and rooftop snipers, with military helicopters buzzing overhead, protesters waved Iraqi flags and signs reading "Bring the Light Back" (a reference to the lack of electricity), "No to Corruption!" and "I'm a Peaceful Man."
A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad downplayed the protest-related violence and the impact of the curfew, saying that Iraq's security forces "generally have not used force against peaceful protesters."

Hillary Clinton, the American Secretary of State, will meet members of Libya's opposition fighting to topple Muammar Gaddafi, though no details were given about how those arrangements would be made. 
The US also announced that it was suspending relations with the Libyan embassy in Washington, as President Barack Obama faced criticism at home for not taking a stronger leadership role in tackling Libya.
Several of the president's potential Republican rivals for the 2012 election have joined calls for the imposition of a no-fly zone to control Col Gaddafi's air power.

War propaganda in the Iraqi no-fly zones

IZD002Arabicf.jpg

In the Iraqi no-fly zones, the Coalition (U.S., England, NATO,) broadcasted the usual Arabic music and news, and messages aimed at dividing the Iraqi people and military from Saddam Hussein. One message, broadcast from a United States Air Force EC-130E Commando Solo aircraft flying over Iraq said, “Saddam has built palace after palace for himself and has purchased a fleet of luxury cars all at the expense of the Iraqi people. This money would be much better suited to build libraries and schools. This money would have gone a long way to provide better food and medicine for the people of Iraq. The amount of money Saddam spends on himself in one day would be more than enough to feed a family for a year".

The so called no-fly zone is a preparation for War

IraqNoflyLeaflet.jpg

In fall 2002, the United States of America began preparations for a second war against Iraq. Part of the strategy was to increase the number of flights over the so-called "no-fly" zones.  The Iraqis were aware of the increased surveillance and met it by targeting Coalition aircraft with radar and occasionally firing anti-aircraft artillery or missiles toward the aircraft. This caused an escalating chain reaction. As the Iraqis fired on the aircraft, more aircraft dropped warning leaflets against such actions, which led to increased anti-aircraft fire. This led to the bombing of such sites and continued escalation.

By October 2002, there were 46 strikes by U.S.and British aircraft during the course of the year. Thirty-six of those were in the southern zone. The strikes increased, as it became clear that President Bush was considering ordering an invasion to oust Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

Iraqi no-fly zones were illegal

Iraq_NO_FLY_ZONES.png

The Iraqi no-fly zones were a set of two separate no-fly zones (NFZs), and were proclaimed by the United States, United Kingdom and France after the Gulf War of 1991. Iraqi aircraft were forbidden from flying inside the zones. The policy was enforced by US, UK and French aircraft patrols until France withdrew in 1998. While the enforcing powers had cited United Nations Security Council Resolution 688 as authorizing the operations, the resolution contains no explicit authorization. The Secretary-General of the UN at the time the resolution was passed, Boutros Boutros-Ghali called the no-fly zones "illegal" in a later interview with John Pilger.
