Libya: The Greatest Betrayal

In handing Libya to Al Qaeda, the line has been forever crossed.
an editorial by Tony Cartalucci


First - let's not labor under any delusions. Obama, Cameron, and Sarkozy are heads of state in name only. It is the depravity and megalomania amongst the banks, corporations, and the institutions they have contrived, that are responsible for the most egregious betrayal in Western history. For 10 years the West's leadership have stirred up hatred and fear amongst their populations to justify a lengthy and very costly global war that has sent US, British, Canadian, German, French, and many other troops, around the world, into dangerous adversity, and ultimately to their graves to fight "the forces of terror."

Now, almost as if savoring the irony, the New York Times, on behalf of the corporate-financier oligarchs that presume dominion over the Western world, fully admit that Al Qaeda terrorists, men who literally killed US troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan are now in Libya and are the benefactors of billions of dollars in Western aid, diplomatic recognition, training, weapons, the lending of intelligence assets, the full unwavering support of the West's "media," NATO-member air support, and even graced with Western special forces fighting side-by-side with them on the ground. This timely confession is also in response in part to revelations that the Libyan rebel commander now filling the streets of Tripoli with indescribable horror is a hardcore Al Qaeda leader, reported first in the Telegraph months ago, and again this week on RT and covered in depth by respected geopolitical analyst Dr. Webster Tarpley.

While naive Americans are brimming with pride as the military machine bankrupting them into destitution rolls over another minute nation an ocean away, they seem ignorant or unable to wrap their minds around how egregiously they've been betrayed. After 10 years, thousands of dead troops, tens of thousands broken mentally or physically, an economy diverted to war, occupation, and "nation building" overseas while America's infrastructure rots beneath her, the corporate-financier oligarchs have decided to betray and infinitely humiliate America's armed forces in the worst manner imaginable - have them provide air cover, intel, and special operational support for blood-thirsty mercenaries that hunted and killed their brothers in arms for the past decade.

Entire families have been destroyed, communities devastated by the loss of their brothers and sisters, friends, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, fighting what they thought was a war for the very survival of their way of life. Today, in Libya, with Al Qaeda literally being handed a nation-state by these corporate-financiers through their political and military proxies, the leaders we have elected and the corporations we have helped grow to monstrous proportions now squat upon the graves our nation's fallen and defile their memories and the ideals they believed they were giving their lives for in an unforgivable way.

And while it will be claimed by many that this is "Obama's War," it most certainly is not. The very cadre of Neo-Conservatives that engineered the last decade of debilitating global war at the expense of American blood and treasure have been quietly cheerleading the expansion of NATO's intervention in Libya. This can be seen in unequivocal terms in a letter written to US House Republicans imploring them to end their resistance to the current, unconstitutional war, and instead discard the UNSC resolution and give even more support for the terrorists seizing Libya on their behalf. Paul Wolfowitz, Elliott Abrams, Max Boot, Frederick Kagan, Karl Rove, Ellen Bork, Robert Kagan, Liz Cheney, William Kristol, Dan Senor, and James Woolsey are just some of the names of individuals that affixed their signatures at the bottom of this letter. Quite clearly, this is not exclusively "Obama's War," rather one engineered and promoted by the Fortune 500 banks and corporations that include both Obama and America's most notorious Neo-Conservatives as loyal servants.

If ever there was a time for our military, not just the rank and file, but the officers that lead them and whose hands young fighting men put their lives into, to recall their oath given to the US Constitution and their duty to protect and defend their nation and their people, it would be now. If ever there was a time to recognize our self-proclaimed leadership, crutching their legitimacy along with the facade of "democracy" as the self-serving egregious traitors they are - the time is now. And when the people's faith in their government falters, let us be vigilant against pretend reformers. Let us make sure military men stepping forward to rectify our nation's slide into the surreal aren't corporate-fascist serving Council on Foreign Relations members like General Stanley McChrystal or General David Petraeus, both of whom are guilty of helping to foist this facade upon the American people at tragic costs to us all.

For the average man or woman in America, now would be a good time to start putting these corporations and banks out of business. Boycott and replace them systematically, day to day, little by little. America has misplaced their faith in these world-spanning corporations and have traded their independence and self-reliance in for the illusion of convenience. It is time to take that independence back. It is also time to vote each and every incumbent out of office that has served these agendas and promoted this war, now exposed as an absolute hoax. Those like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Joe Lieberman come particularly to mind. Finally, it is time to start getting organized as a community. Reach out to your neighbors, start a marksmanship club, help each other with starting a garden, and start standing up for one another when this corrupt, parasitic system comes searching for sustenance to continue fueling its dark deeds. By exercising each and every one of your Constitutional rights, collectively as a community and on a daily basis, you ensure their vigor in standing up against tyranny of all kinds.

Now is the time, this far and no further - if not for ourselves, for the thousands of Americans that shed their lives in the belief they did so for a higher cause and whose memories are now being defiled by the despicable actions of Wall Street and London, and the degenerate army of sycophants that serve them, from Europe to North America, from Israel's leadership, to the corporate oligarchs that manipulate the people of Australia. This evil empire has reached an intolerable height.

CONFIRMED: Libya War is CIA Op 30 Years in the Making

by Tony Cartalucci

Alternative media activist David Icke, who has been warning about the false nature of the "Arab Spring" since it began over six months ago, has pointed out an astounding "flashback" regarding an August 3, 1981 Newsweek article titled, "A Plan to Overthrow Kaddafi."

‘The details of the plan were sketchy, but it seemed to be a classic CIA destabilization campaign. One element was a “disinformation” program designed to embarrass Kaddafi and his government. Another was the creation of a “counter government” to challenge his claim to national leadership. A third — potentially the most risky — was an escalating paramilitary campaign, probably by disaffected Libyan nationals, to blow up bridges, conduct small-scale guerrilla operations and demonstrate that Kaddafi was opposed by an indigenous political force."
....

Quite obviously this plan has been executed verbatim with the necessary addition of a NATO intervention to rescue the above stated "paramilitary" campaign from Libyan security forces - a contigency plan explicitly spelled out in another Wall Street-London subsidized, signed confession, Brookings Institution's "Which Path to Persia?"

Using Military Force to Assist Popular Revolutions, page 109-110 (page 122-123 of the PDF): "Consequently, if the United States ever succeeds in sparking a revolt against the clerical regime, Washington may have to consider whether to provide it with some form of military support to prevent Tehran from crushing it." "This requirement means that a popular revolution in Iran does not seem to fit the model of the “velvet revolutions” that occurred elsewhere. The point is that the Iranian regime may not be willing to go gently into that good night; instead, and unlike so many Eastern European regimes, it may choose to fight to the death. In those circumstances, if there is not external military assistance to the revolutionaries, they might not just fail but be massacred.

Consequently, if the United States is to pursue this policy, Washington must take this possibility into consideration. It adds some very important requirements to the list: either the policy must include ways to weaken the Iranian military or weaken the willingness of the regime’s leaders to call on the military, or else the United States must be ready to intervene to defeat it."
....

The disinformation campaign began in February as overt, now verified lies were told to the public regarding both the nature of the uprising and the Libyan government's reaction to it. As tank driving, jet flying battle hardened LIFG Al Qaeda mercenaries waged war against the Libyan army, the corporate media in tandem with NATO member states preparing to intervene, portrayed the uprising as peaceful placard waving activists being mowed down by machine gun fire and strafed by Libyan warplanes. Evidence now confirms no such atrocties took place, however the UN citing this intentional disinformation authroized NATO intervention.

The very nature of the Benghazi rebels has been deceptively presented to the public. In fact, they are a collection of extremists and mercenaries, many of whom had been fighting recently in Iraq and Afghanistan against US forces. These mercenaries, who have been backed by the CIA and MI6 for the last 30 years (see time line), are being portrayed as an "an indigenous political force" opposing Libya's government. It has just been recently revealed that the rebel commander attempting to seize Tripoli is none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj, an Al Qaeda asset who was previously captured by in Malaysia, tortured by the CIA in Bangkok, Thailand in 2003, before being release back in Libya where he is now fighting on behalf of NATO.

Additional disinformation comes in the form of media attempts to portray Qaddafi as a rambling madman who despite the disparagement, has turned out to be one of the few heads of state speaking any truth at all regarding the conflict besieging his nation. From his earlier claims that the uprising was foreign backed Al Qaeda, to now verified claims that the rebellion was nothing more than a means to usher in a foreign occupation and the despoiling of Libya's resources, he has been spot on.

As rebels loot his home and his compound in central Tripoli, he is now being disingenuously portrayed as an opulent tyrant who hoarded state resources at the cost of his population. Betraying the duplicity of this lie is the UN's own Human Development Index which lists Libya as one of the most developed nations in Africa and is ranked higher than many other nations including Russia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and Malaysia. Quite obviously Libya's oil wealth was put to good use, and as Libya has ensured the West's nefarious corporate-funded NGOs were excluded from Libyan society, no other explanation for Libya's development exists beyond the government's own initiatives.

What we are witnessing in Libya is a concerted, admitted war of aggression by corporate-financier interests who have openly conspired to carry out a campaign of military and economic conquest throughout the Middle East (and beyond), including Northern Africa and specifically including Libya. From Wesley Clark's 2007 speech, to Newsweeks' 1981 article, we have been handed a signed confession that "our" governments are the true enemies of free humanity, masking their agenda with the thinnest veneer of moral justification, almost as if to insult the intelligence of so many who eagerly continue to empower them as they maliciously move forward. Once again, we must commit ourselves to identifying the corporate-financier interests truly driving this agenda, lurking behind the military and political leaders paraded before us as the executors of "international policy." We must also commit to boycotting and replacing these corporate-financier interests as well as ending the recognition of any of the legitimacy they endlessly heap upon themselves.

Libya: Tripoli Stands in Defiance of NATO

Reports of rebel leaders presiding over Tripoli a confirmed lie.
by Tony Cartalucci

Despite sweeping headlines claiming the Benghazi rebel terrorists have shifted their leadership over to Tripoli after continuous claims of the city falling to rebels after over a week of continuous fighting, BBC has slipped out the fact that this claim is a verified lie. Buried within an article titled, "Horror scenes at Tripoli hospital," BBC conceded that the rebels have constructed a makeshift landing strip in the western Nafusa mountains where they are "reported to be staying," only visiting Tripoli in daytime for quick photo opportunities. The article continues by also conceding the self-proclaimed, unelected leader of the rebels, Abdul Jalil and "other key leaders" are staying in the east because of "the lack of security in Tripoli." That is of course when these "key leaders" aren't groveling in Doha, Paris, and Rome before their Western sponsors.

This definitively exposes the current operations inside Libya as a desperate psychological war with the corporate media explicitly deceiving the public with misleading headlines under which facts are buried by mountains of minutia, carefully worded propaganda, unverified innuendos, and outright lies.

NATO & Rebel Murder-Spree Creating a Real Humanitarian Crisis

In another disturbing development, it appears that the rebels control a single concentration of troops within Tripoli that are scrambling from one NATO designated objective to another, streaming in after aerial bombardments on civilian infrastructure and leaving in their wake mass murder and complete social dysfunction. A hospital in the previously government controlled Abu Silem district has been abandoned after a NATO bombardment followed by rebel advances. NATO bombs also destroyed a local fire station and there are now reports of black Africans turning up in large numbers, dead, in hospitals. While BBC has officially written them off as "suspected mercenaries," it should be noted that just like every nation on earth, Libya's population includes diverse demographics, and considering its location on the continent of Africa, many black citizens.


Photo: Images and reports are beginning to trickle in as NATO-backed genocide unfolds throughout Tripoli's streets, indicating the destruction of infrastructure and the specific targeting of black Africans written off by the corporate media as "suspected mercenaries." Benghazi rebels have been long reported to harbor extremist ideologies and an intense ethnic & racial hatred.
....

Respected geopolitical analyst Dr. Webster Tarpley has long warned from the beginning of NATO's operations in Libya that Benghazi's rebel terrorists harbor vicious racial and ethnic hatreds that were manifesting themselves in brazen atrocities as NATO helped them move westward toward Tripoli. Corporate funded human rights organizations were force to recognize this alarming trend, though their reports were mostly muted, and in conjunction with corporate media spin, obfuscated from public scrutiny and debate. It should be remembered that the UK, US, France, and Qatar have all admitted their special forces and intelligence agencies were on the ground leading these very rebels. This means that not only are these atrocities taking place at the hands of rebels receiving NATO air support, funding, weapons, and political recognition, they are taking place at the hands of rebel militants literally led on the ground by NATO forces themselves.

For more on verified reports regarding the Benghazi rebels' atrocities please see "Libyan War Gets Weird," "Libya's Not-so-Noble Rebels," "Al Qaeda: Pawns of CIA Insurrection from Libya to Yemen," and "The CIA’s Libya Rebels: The Same Terrorists who Killed US, NATO Troops in Iraq."

Libya: NATO Humiliation Increasing per Airstrike

You don't bomb a "captured" city.
by Tony Cartalucci

Each NATO warplane that passes over Libya's coast and releases its ordnance upon the city of Tripoli is a glaring reminder that not only have the NATO-backed rebels failed to take the city, but the fighting there is beyond their ability to face without constant air support. As each bomb tears through Tripoli's already NATO-battered infrastructure - most recently destroying a fire station in the Abu Salim district - the world is given daily affirmations of just how duplicitous and premature NATO's desperate claims of "victory" were, made now nearly a week ago. To add injury to insult, UK's Foreign Secretary William Hague was imploring South Africa to release funding to NATO's proxies in Benghazi and suggested that failing to do so would be "risking a humanitarian disaster." Hague has not yet explained how the persistent aerial bombardment of a heavily populated city isn't already causing a verified humanitarian disaster.

Photo: The rebels, led on ground by NATO special forces and protected by NATO planes in the air have still failed to take Tripoli after a week of fighting. Attempts to seize other cities still under Libyan government control are also significant tactical failures. The media, unable to point to a victorious rebel government seated in Tripoli is now attempting to sell the "chaos" angle - that combat is degenerating into genocide, in hopes the world will beg for a stabilization force. The only problem is that "genocidal" rebels are led, armed, trained, and organized by NATO officers on the ground.
....

There are now reports that NATO's Al Qaeda brigades have been stalled before entering the coastal cities of Sirte and Bin Jawad, both lying between Benghazi and Misrata. In fact, by reading between the rhetoric, we see that the rebels have not only failed to achieve anything beyond the most symbolic of victories amidst immense chaos sown throughout Tripoli, they are in fact in a more tenuous position than ever before, with their forces stretched in multiple locations facing an entrenched Libyan army on multiple fronts.

By claiming victory while conducting daily air strikes upon a "captured city," for those that are able to put the pieces together, NATO exposes a tenuous grip on a bungled drawn out campaign. Of course there is no possible way NATO believed Libya could be taken over within days, not weeks, and must be acutely aware that even if Tripoli fell tomorrow - which it most likely won't - there will still be entire cities under Libyan government control along with Libya's vast southern interior. Occupation was NATO's true endgame from the beginning, waiting only for the proper pretext to begin landing troops on the ground. Getting that pretext has proven to be difficult.

Occupation cannot begin until either Benghazi's terrorist leaders are able to squat in Tripoli long enough to call in NATO forces for assistance, or if NATO can create enough chaos, murder, and mayhem to get the "international community" to beg for a "stabilization force." However it appears that the rebel forces are incapable of producing either result without NATO's constant bombardments from overhead, betraying media reports that "Tripoli has fallen" or that NATO has achieved any sort of victory.

AP reported what they claim were rebels binding and executing activists who erected a tent near Bab al-Aziziya compound as a sign of solidarity with Qaddafi. Such a report, if true, would certainly seem like the beginnings of the genocide geopolitical analysts like Dr. Webster Tarpley had predicted if Benghazi terrorists ever reached Tripoli. NATO perhaps hopes this will be the catalyst it needs to sway Western political camps resistant to the idea of a "stabilization force." There is one complication however.

France, the US, UK, and Qatar have all admitted they have special forces on the ground leading, assisting, arming, and training the rebels. Any chaos or atrocities attributed to these rebels would then directly implicate NATO's own forces leading them. NATO's premature victory celebration has turned into humiliation mired by ineffectual rebels on the ground, exposed lies, and a public now aware that Western special forces are in fact leading the unpredictable, brutal rebels.

It is up to the alternative media to expose these facts ad infinitum so that NATO is unable to sell their lies about achieving victory or portraying the rebels as "murderous loose cannons" requiring NATO's intervention. Of course there is the concerted attempt to repackage February's verified lies regarding Qaddafi's alleged atrocities against civilians, coupled with the classical feigned fears of "WMDs," and use this as a pretext to land troops. These lies too must be vigorously exposed, forcing NATO to either continue its tactical stalemate until its September deadline or forcing it to continue destroying its reputation and exposing its true criminal agenda before the world as it ham-handedly stumbles through the finish line.

While NATO and its corporate sponsors believe a victory in Libya will pave the way for operations in Syria and beyond, the globalists and their propaganda machine have never taken a beating as badly as they have in Libya, a nation of only six million people. Activism, informing others, and boycotting the Fortune 500 corporations lurking behind these wars does indeed make a difference and are things we can all do even just 10 minutes a day.

NATO-backed Libyan Rebels Attempt to Arrest Indy Journalists

Voltaire Network denounces the attempt by the "rebels" to arrest Thierry Meyssan

Voltaire Network, Thursday, 25 August 25, 2011, 3:25 p.m. - The journalists who had been trapped inside the hotel Rixos in Tripoli since Sunday were evacuated yesterday, 24 August 2011, at 5 p.m, by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The four members of the Voltaire Network team - journalists Thierry Meyssan, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Mathieu Ozanon and Julien Teil - were among them.

However, after their release, the rebels tried to detain Thierry Meyssan, well known for his articles exposing the crimes of NATO. The ICRC intervened to prevent his arrest.

The journalists were taken to another hotel, where they are no longer under ICRC protection.

The journalists have thus far been unable to reach the ship chartered by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which is supposed to have already docked in Tripoli.

Voltaire Network is extremely concerned about the attitude showed by the NATO-sponsored "rebels" towards its journalists. It is hereby launching an international appeal to the international community urging for the protection of its journalists and for their safe departure from Libya.


Battle for Tripoli & Greater Libya Still On

NATO calls Qaddafi "delusional" even as their "hours, not days" Tripoli operation nears 1 week mark.
by Tony Cartalucci

Racing desperately against both an approaching deadline on their mandate and their departing credibility, NATO is desperately declaring victory in Libya regardless of what the facts on the ground may be. Parading before the public, videos of rebels looting empty compounds and dancing briefly in a square that may or may not have even been in the country, NATO's declaration of victory teeters entirely on the corporate-media's ability to obfuscate what is obviously a citywide battle overturning earlier rebel "gains" in Tripoli.

Photo: While NATO is under no delusions as to how tenuous their ongoing murder spree is in Libya, their psychological warfare and claims of a decisive victory for NATO-backed rebels were shattered when Saif al-Islam reappeared after the ICC "confirmed" he was captured by rebels, and began leading a counterattack that has now drawn out for nearly a week. Despite herculean feats of wishful thinking on the globalists' behalf, the battle for Tripoli and greater Libya is still on.
....

Voice of America, a US State Department mouthpiece, conceded Wednesday that Qaddafi's troops were holding and contesting multiple locations across the capital of Tripoli and still held entire cities along both Libya's coast and throughout the nation's vast interior. With NATO already declaring victory within the realm of these glaring facts, it appears as if NATO is merely rushing to the next phase of their war of aggression - the occupation, which by necessity will require an initial invasion and the establishment of a "Green-Zone" to protect NATO's rebel proxies.

As the corporate-financier-funded Atlantic Council both "congratulates" NATO and celebrates Obama's ability to lead America "into battle without the hard work of securing authorization from a partisan Congress," we see just how far and how recklessly the globalists have gone in pursuit of global hegemony. They have explicitly declared that Libya is a matter of establishing the primacy of international law over the sovereignty of the nation-state and that failure would balk their plans to proceed on toward Syria, Iran, and beyond to Russia and China's peripheries before ultimately undermining and collapsing Moscow and Beijing. With this much at stake, despite endless promises that "boots on the ground" was a hysterical conspiracy theory, we will undoubtedly see NATO troops landing in Libya and occupying Tripoli. There is no lie too big, nor a transgression against humanity too egregious that can confine the globalists' ambitions now, only direct, concerted opposition to their agenda.

NATO's mandate ends in September and without a victory, real or imagined, Libya will become a tactical and political defeat. If NATO can feign victory long enough, they can circumvent UNSC r.1973's constraints and begin expanding their presence on the ground in Libya which really will forever topple Qaddafi. By exposing the lies of NATO and its corporate-financier backers, by exposing to the world the true agenda and despicable personalities lurking behind this bloodbath, by exposing the truth behind the rebels' real associations, the alternative media has an opportunity to, if not balk the invasion of Libya, at least make it obvious to the world what an overt, monstrous crime against humanity it is. Force the monsters to show their true colors and expose the A-Z lies peddled to the public before they try a repeat performance in Syria and beyond.

While the fates of both Libya and Syria and the destruction of their sovereignty by a growing global empire may not seem important today, each victory for this global corporate-fascist monstrosity gives it increasing strength to impose its will upon you when the time comes, where ever you may live.

Land Destroyer Twitter Account Suspended

Follow @LanddestroyerW for now.
by Tony Cartalucci

Quite obviously my coverage of Libya has a lot of people upset. I had received a concerted barrage of attacks by suspiciously similar accounts all tweeting 24/7 for weeks regarding Libya, all overtly pro-NATO just before my account was suspended. I was covering the Rixos Hotel and how even mainstream media admitted that snipers were targeting the building and Qaddafi's troops were attempting to protect it. Despite this the media suggests the journalists are "hostages." The troops have now, in fact, allowed them to leave. This was yet another hoax, on par with the "Saif al-Islam" hoax where a very much free and energetic Saif showed up to personally dispel BBC, CNN, Al Jazeera, NATO propaganda.

Image: Please note that the user is featuring the NATO-backed, Al Qaeda infested Libya rebel tri-color flag as their logo. This user is attempting to rally other cyber-trolls to censor Land Destroyer's message regarding the truth in Libya by concertedly reporting the account as "spam." (Click image to enlarge.)
....

Twitter may or may not be directly behind this - there is no way of knowing - however they have a "report spam" feature that is easily exploited by large groups of organized bloggers who can simply "report as spam" any message not to their liking. What sort of investigation or oversight goes on behind the scenes to vet these reports, I do not know, I was also never sent any sort of e-mail regarding why my account was suspended. This also occurred at the height of the Malaysian Bersih hysteria - where US-funded protesters were trying to gain momentum against Malaysia's decidedly anti-globalist government. A Land Destroyer account was also suspended as I exposed US funding and its agenda behind the street protests.

@landdestroyerW still works - so please feel free to follow Land Destroyer's commentary there. Also, Land Destroyer maintains a WordPress site http://landdestroyer.wordpress.com/ which is being updated and will continue to be updated in tandem with this site in case it goes offline.

Calls for NATO Occupation of Libya Deafening

Libya's future hinges on the globalists' ability to lie long enough to get an occupation force in place.
by Tony Cartalucci

(image: CFR Neo-Con degenerate, Max Boot.)

It was reported that Richard Haas, president of the Fortune 500-lined Council on Foreign Relations, had stated clearly that "Libya now needs boots on the ground," NATO boots to be specific. Now joining the growing chorus of globalists calling for a full NATO occupation of Libya is Neo-Con degenerate, fellow Council on Foreign Relations conspirator Max Boot who recently wrote an editorial for the LA Times titled, "Libya's problems are far from over," where he emphatically states "peacekeeping troops" are an absolute necessity to head off what the media is already trying to brand an "insurgency" referring to the Libyan government's defense of Tripoli.

To compound Boot's apparent contempt for his readership's intelligence, he claims that occupation forces will be needed to secure Libya's "weapons of mass destruction," and give the Libyan rebels time to build up professional security forces - rebels who are admitted members of Al Qaeda, many of whom are fresh back from murdering American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Boot's only regret regarding the disastrous and still failing US occupation of Iraq was that more troops were not committed, seemingly suggesting Libya will be "done right" and a massive force will be landed to ensure the nation progresses as Wall Street and London desire.

Boot's final insult to our intelligence is the claim that NATO currently appears to be refusing to commit to any such occupation force. In reality, NATO's denials of such an occupation force are for perception-management purposes only. NATO troops are already on the ground, including SAS special forces, Qatari funded British mercenaries, Qatari and Emarati troops, and MI6 and CIA operatives. The UK has already admitted to having prepared at least 200 more troops to land in Libya at any given moment and arrangements are already underway to tap NATO members for additional troop commitments.

The only complication for Boot and his degenerate co-conspirator Haas' narrative is that Tripoli has not yet fallen. The rebels, even with NATO ground forces assisting them, are approaching now a full week of fighting to take the capital in operations that promised to be over "in hours not days." The mainstream media has been perpetually assuring its dimwitted viewership that Tripoli is "virtually," "almost," "about to be," "on the brink of," "any moment," falling into rebel hands. As rebels rush from one hallow photo opportunity to the other in an attempt to sell their "victory" to the world, the Libyan military forces have been hitting them from the southern situated Rixos Hotel, to the international airport in the far east of Tripoli. Quite clearly the capital is still contested, while other cities across Libya still remain firmly in government hands.

While Boot, Haas, and the degenerate bankster-serving media propagandists assume the public has bought the narrative that Libya is now a "NATO victory" and the occupation force will merely be a prudent conclusion to their operations to "ensure stability," the reality is that Qaddafi and the Libyan army cannot be defeated by the rebel forces alone. By rushing the rebels' contrived government from Benghazi to Tripoli, declaring them the victors in the capital amidst a historically unprecedented disinformation campaign, and now beginning to portray the Libyan army as "insurgents," they are in fact setting the stage for a ground invasion - not occupation - to deal the Libyan military a death blow.

It is now confirmed that the ground operations against Tripoli that started last weekend were overwhelmingly a psychological operation attempting to belie NATO's weakness. Outrageous propaganda and staged chaos following an unprecedented aerial bombardment by NATO was designed to panic and collapse entirely Tripoli's defenses and utterly rout Libyan troops. Instead, troops weathered the chaos and as it ebbed, counterattacked with Qaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam leading the way. Saif had been "confirmed captured" by the Wall Street-London "International Criminal Court." This is now exposed as obvious disinformation and the epitome of the sort of lies and propaganda employed by NATO in their desperate last-ditch bid to take Libya.

It should be noted, that Max Boot was one of the many Neo-Con warmonger, corporate fascist globalist stooges that signed a June 2011 letter addressed to US House Republicans imploring them to ignore both the will of the American people and the contrived UN mandate in order to lend the rebels "more assistance." Fellow signatories including William Kristol have been promoting a ground invasion and the forceful removal of Qaddafi from power since the beginning of NATO operations, making an open mockery of the very "international laws" Kristol and others presume the US should be enforcing upon the world.

In war, when one relies on disinformation on the scale seen now used by NATO in Libya, it betrays their image of strength and the vitality of their campaign. If NATO and the rebels were truly as powerful and as capable as we are being told, there would be absolutely no need to obfuscate the facts on the ground in Libya to the extent that it is. Indeed, NATO's latest attack on Tripoli was an absolute bluff which has been called by the Libyan people now in full resistance. The continued lies being peddled now by the media indicate a smokescreen being set up to give the rebel "government" enough time to squat in Tripoli and call in NATO troops.

The very fact that Libya's rebels are still meeting in Paris and Doha to complete their "transition" instead of in Tripoli exposes how ignominiously deceptive news of their "victory" is. Qaddafi has vowed to fight on for years - and seeing how he has been the only one telling the truth from the beginning, be it the fact that the rebels are Al Qaeda terrorists or that the rebels were paving the way for an inevitable Western occupation - we would be wise to believe him rather than the infinitely duplicitous Western media - who promised us "no boots on the ground" for an operation that was promised to end months ago.

Intelligence Outfit: Foreign Special Forces Behind Tripoli Showdown

Editor's Update: Reports including the Guardian's "SAS troopers help co-ordinate rebel attacks in Libya" and the UK's Mirror's "Britain's Secret War in Libya: British Special Forces uncovered on the ground," confirm the entire report below. NATO troops are indeed on the ground and fighting in Tripoli and across Libya leading efforts to topple Qaddafi's government.

Additionally, rebel leaders from Benghazi are rushing to Tripoli to claim the capital amid fierce street fighting while NATO, the Council on Foreign Relations, and other globalist outlets openly talk about an inevitable NATO occupation force that has been pieced together and prepared since the beginning of NATO operations earlier this year. This latest assault on Tripoli was never meant to fully take the capital, but merely prepare the rhetorical landscape for increasing the number of NATO "boots on the ground" until full occupation is incrementally achieved and circumvent the constraints placed on NATO via their own contrived UNSC r.1973.

British, French, Jordanian, Qatari military crack forces are behind compound siege

Steve Watson
Infowars.com
Aug 23, 2011

Rebels

An intelligence-gathering outlet that has proven accurate in the past has reported today that far from being merely a rebel uprising, the showdown in Tripoli over the last 48 hours is being “spearheaded” by British, French, Jordanian and Qatari Special Operations forces.

Israeli open source intelligence gathering outfit DEBKAfile reports:

“This is the first time Western and Arab ground troops have fought on the same battlefield in any of the Arab revolts of the last nine months and the first time Arab soldiers have taken part in a NATO operation.”

As we reported yesterday, the operation, nicknamed “Mermaid Dawn”, is being directed by US and NATO forces. The rebels have received training and arms from special forces and are being directed by Western intelligence operatives on the ground in Libya.

NATO is now planning a “humanitarian” occupation of Libya with thousands of British and American soldiers, risking the possibility that troops could be sent into yet another quagmire to rival Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Debkafile report continues:

“Our military sources report that the British have deployed SAS commandoes and France, 2REP (Groupe des commando parachutiste), which is similar to the US Navy DELTA unit, as well as DINOP commandos. Fighting too are Jordan’s Royal Special Forces, specialists in urban combat and capturing fortified installations like the Qaddafi compound in Tripoli, and the Qatari Special Forces, which were transferred from Benghazi where they guarded rebel Transitional National Council leaders.”

The report also states that the rebel fighters being directed by these special forces groups are very uncoordinated small groups of tribal fighters.

“NATO is trying to import better-trained fighters by sea from Benghazi and Misrata.” the report states. This information dovetails with intelligence revealed by journalist Webster Tarpley on yesterday’s nationally syndicated Alex Jones show.


DEBKAfile notes that its military sources say many key facilities within Gaddafi’s compound, which is now under seige, are located underground.

The “chambers are interconnected by a network of corridors, some broad enough to accommodate tanks. The network branches out to the sea and locations outside Tripoli.” the report states. Indeed, it is believed that Gadaffi 12th Tank Division is stationed in these vast tunnels.

This indicates that the “victory” scenes playing out across the media at time of writing with rebels clambering over statues within the grounds are somewhat premature.

DEBKAfile’s previous analysis has proven to be on the money. Indeed, back in July the website received intelligence indicating that should Gadaffi continue to resist an agreement to step down before the UN mandated September 2nd deadline, then NATO was prepared to instigate a crushing military blow in which the United States had also agreed to take part.

Libya: NATO Psy-Op Collapses - Qaddafi Prevails Again

NATO bluff called by Qaddafi, rebels' victory facade crumbles.
by Tony Cartalucci

Update: You can't make this up - the International Criminal Court (ICC) now claims it never confirmed that Qaddafi's son Saif Al-Islam was captured. Here is the Telegraph article quoting ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo as having indeed confirmed his capture. Here is a farcical Reuters report now claiming such a confirmation was never claimed. ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo should resign, so should editors at both the Telegraph and Reuters and a myriad of other media agencies complicit in spreading this willful and malicious propaganda.

August 23, 2011 - Once again a defiant Qaddafi has prevailed against the full might of NATO aggression including a murderous bombing campaign followed by NATO special forces on the ground supporting mobs of US/UK/French/Qatari backed Al Qaeda thugs which swarmed Tripoli over the weekend. "Illustrious" news agencies from the Qatari government's AlJazeera, to the now exposed frauds at CNN, BBC, Reuters, AP, AFP have been caught perpetuating a concerted war propaganda campaign in order to break the will of both Libya and in particular Tripoli.

Photo: Taken overnight, Qaddafi's son Saif Al-Islam "confirmed" to be captured and ready to be transferred to the Hague by the illegitimate International Criminal Court, is actually very much free and leading efforts to drive out NATO backed Al Qaeda thugs from Tripoli.
....

Reports that Qaddafi's son Saif Al-Islam was "captured" by Libyan rebels by the disingenuous media outlets and "confirmed" by the Fortune 500 contrived International Criminal Court (ICC), who went as far as saying preparations were already under way to transfer Saif to the Hague, are now confirmed lies with Saif Al-Islam very much free, appearing to journalists at the Rixos Hotel in southern Tripoli flanked by Libyan military forces and very much leading what appears to be a significant Libyan government counterattack. It appears that NATO operations are ending just as they began, based on a verified pack of lies. (Please see March's "Libya: Another War, Another Pack of Lies")

Everything we have been told, from President Obama's teleprompter readings to Luis Moreno-Ocampo of the ICC's claims of Saif's "confirmed" capture, to the mainstream media and the Al Qaeda infested "Transitional National Council" are now systematically being exposed as overt, verified lies as part of what may be the biggest psychological operation in modern history. Al Jazeera who was already featuring lofty "The Last Days of Gaddafi" narratives is now forced to face reality and irrefutable evidence that the rebel operations in Tripoli were clearly over-hyped war propaganda and the reality is Qaddafi and the Libyan people have called NATO's bluff.

To illustrate just how absurd the Western media has become as their lies break upon the rocks of reality, a recent farcical attempt to save face regarding Saif's appearance before journalists at the Riox included an Al Jazeera report claiming that rebel leaders had confirmation Saif al-Islam was arrested "but have no idea how he escaped." To help out the media it might be suggested that Saif was never captured in the first place and that reports of his arrest were simply a ploy to embolden rebels and make it appear as if the momentum had swung in favor of NATO. (For more on US State Department lies rehashed through "media" please see: "Libyan Rebels Lying Left and Right")

Image: Here, the International Criminal Court "confirms" the now verified lie that Saif Al-Islam was being held by rebels. ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, in a fit of unmitigated lies claimed, "we have confidential information from different sources that we have within Libya confirming this." He would continue, "it is very important to make clear there is an obligation to surrender Saif to the ICC in accordance with the Security Council resolution." Along with UN Chief Ban Ki-Moon's claim that the "international community" is obligated to comply to the ICC we see unfolding a criminal organization of liars and degenerates of unprecedented proportions.
....

What follows next is unsure. With Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haas and others calling for an expedient landing of NATO occupation forces it seems they above all others knew just how tenuous the rebels' hold on Tripoli was. As explained previously, the war in Libya goes beyond pilfering the nation's material wealth, it is about establishing the Wall Street-London international order and its primacy over the nation-state. A NATO failure in Libya would infinitely complicate planned operations against Syria, Iran, and along Russia and China's peripheries. While it appears that NATO's last ditch murder spree has failed, with so much on the table, everything from continuous carpet bombing to a NATO land invasion under the guise of UN "peace monitors" or Haas' NATO occupation forces are possibilities already being planned.

What we do know is how desperate the corporate-financier elite are and how absolute their control is over the mainstream media. Such a large, wide scale disinformation campaign is only possible if each news agency, from AP, Reuters, BBC, Guardian, Telegraph, New York Times, CNN, Al Jazeera and others, are completely compromised by corporate-financier interests. The following lists show that indeed many of these "news agencies" share consortium memberships with some of the largest corporate-financier interests on earth presenting an immense conflict of interest obviously producing astronomically duplicitous improprieties.

Council on Foreign Relations
Chatham House (Major Corporate Members)

Brookings Institution (page 20 of Annual Report)

When we see Reuters sitting side-by-side oil giants like BP, Exxon, Chevron within the halls of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Chatham House and then see reports gloating over Western oil companies moving in to replace Chinese and Russian investments in Libya, their duplicity and lack of independence in their reporting becomes glaringly obvious. These media organizations are in fact PR fronts for the Fortune 500 and their collective goal of implementing a global empire, nation to nation. For now, they are currently obsessed over Libya and the implications its conclusion will have on their future planned conquests, the next being Syria.

It would be a good idea for those following the current NATO murder spree in Libya to abandon any trust in Reuters, BBC, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, and any of the "reputable" newspapers wasting paper and space on our nations' newsstands, all of whose fates are tied directly to the corporate-financier interests pinning their hopes on a NATO victory in Libya. Instead, we must commit ourselves to vetting reliable alternative news sources as well as committing ourselves to the responsibility of researching the news of the day on our own. Let this be proof positive as to how essential it is to boycott and replace everything eminating from the Fortune 500 including their army of professional liars also known as the "mainstream media."

Globalist Richard Haas Calls for NATO Occupation of Libya

Or, "How the Devil Pays"
By Tony Cartalucci

The Financial Times has featured an editorial penned by Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haas titled, "Libya Now Needs Boots on the Ground," where the arch globalist states that Libya's rebels are in no way capable of rebuilding Libya properly and will require an "international force" to maintain order. Haas breathtakingly admits that the NATO intervention to "protect civilians" was in fact a political intervention designed to bring about regime change. With NATO leading the offensive against Tripoli, a relatively calm city until now, the alleged cause of "protecting civilians" rings hollower than ever.

Haas goes on to explain that NATO's "success" is what requires this international assistance in the predictable form of an occupation force to deal with looting, "die-hard regime supporters," and tribal war. Haas also implores Obama to reconsider his decision to rule out American boots on the ground and to do so quickly.

Of course, NATO didn't just spend the last 5 months conducting 7,000+ airstrikes on Libya to "protect civilians" and then ride off into the sunset. This was a war of conquest from the very beginning, with globalists openly declaring it would determine the "primacy of international law" over the nation-state. In fact, the initial uprising itself was gestated in Washington and London where opposition leaders were provided resources and safe-havens to conduct their sedition, with globalist stooges like Ibrahim Sahad literally sitting in front of the White House calling for NATO to bomb his homeland. NATO, its members, particularly the US, UK, and France, and the globalist corporate-financiers behind them, fully intend to rebuild Libya according to their own aspirations shoehorned into a national consensus imposed upon the Libyan people under the guise of "democracy" and "civil society." We are watching a modern empire expand its boundaries into yet another sovereign nation.

Readers may remember an April 2011 article titled "Libyan Rebels Fighting the Globalists' War" with the ever increasingly appropriate subtitle, "How the Devil Pays." In it a caption attempts to sum up Libya's future by stating, "if these rebels really think the West is going to hand them Libya and its riches, they have another thing coming. The Neo-Con arm of the globalist agenda is already seeding the ground to deal with "extremists" coming to power after the "Arab Spring" runs its course. That means Libya's oil & future will be left in the hands of NATO troops, not the Libyan people."

The article continues:

"While the dichotomy of Western politics is merely for public consumption, what each camp states publicly can be put together as a composite giving us a clearer picture of the overall globalist agenda. Neo-Conservative war monger Daniel Pipes, a PNAC signatory, CFR member, and co-conspirator in many of the darkest chapters of recent American history, was recently sharing his "doubts" over the final result of the "Arab Spring." He believes that ultimately extremists will prevail in many cases and only complicate US relations with certain countries.

Of course, Pipes most likely didn't miss the memo and is fully aware that the "Arab Spring" is a US funded gambit, one his fellow "Neo-Cons" lining the National Endowment for Democracy and the fraudulent Freedom House are admittedly involved in. At the very least, he must have picked up the New York Times and read as much. So what exactly is Pipes trying to tell us? He is saying that as soon as the Libyan rebels secure Libya, or the Muslim Brotherhood takes hold of Syria, or Yemen, or wins out in a co-opted counterrevolution against International Crisis Group stooge Mohamed ElBaradei in Egypt, the blinders Western propagandists seem to be wearing will suddenly drop and point out that indeed the globalists have installed extremists "by accident."

To rectify this, Libyan rebels will be betrayed just as quickly as Qaddafi was. They will be removed from power, and replaced by Western stooges protected by NATO ground troops, conveniently already being put on the ground in Libya, and will stay there permanently. The globalist "Neo-Con" think tank Foreign Policy Initiative has stated, "The best way to reduce the potential dangers posed by extremist infiltration is for the United States and its allies to remain engaged in Libya."

This engagement most likely will take the shape of the other unending "engagements" in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the years of cross-border raids into Pakistan. The oil money that once built water ways, public housing, and farms from Benghazi to Tripoli, will be funneled directly out of the country and into the corporate-financier's accounts. The corporate-financier oligarchs will have taken yet another nation-state down with the help of its own gullible population, and for their gullibility, they will pay for the rest of their lives, as will their children and their children's children.

To understand the full scope of the global corporate-financier oligarchy's designs toward any given nation, we must simply look back at the brazen admissions made over the intended future stemming from the outright military conquest of Iraq and Paul Bremer's (CFR) planned economic reformation of the broken nation. The Economist enumerates the "economic liberalization" of Iraq in a piece titled "Let's all go to the yard sale: If it all works out, Iraq will be a capitalist's dream:"

1. 100% ownership of Iraqi assets.
2. Full repatriation of profits.
3. Equal legal standing with local firms.
4. Foreign banks allowed to operate or buy into local banks.
5. Income and corporate taxes capped at 15%.
6. Universal tariffs slashed to 5%.

Anyone who would willfully make a deal with such people must have their discernment called into question. As Hugo Chavez of Venezuela said of Hosni Mubarak's decades of appeasing the globalists and his eventual ousting from power at the hands of US funded, trained, and supported protesters, "that's how the devil pays." Indeed it is, and it is an instructive lesson for others including the rebels of Benghazi to consider as they attempt to make their own deals with the globalists today."

And indeed, as NATO rushes through to the finish line with a spectacular display of mass-murder and mayhem in Libya, and with the rebels dancing in the streets as NATO warplanes roar overhead, the time is soon approaching for Benghazi to pay back the West for their "help."

As pundits in the duplicitous corporate media feign ignorance over the future of Libya, as if it is truly in the hands of the Libyan people as Obama cartoonishly portrayed in his latest teleprompter reading, the self-proclaimed "Transitional National Council" leader Gibril Elqarfally gave us cyrstal clear picture of Libya's future - one inspired by globalization. In a May 12, 2011 talk before the Brookings Institution, he claimed “what’s taking place is a natural product of the globalizational process that started in the mid-80′s.”

Elwarfally talks about a “new global cultural paradigm,” “new global values,” common values, shared by many “young people.” These young people, he says, are calling for human dignity, democracy, and inclusion at all levels of national government, repeating verbatim statements coming from geopolitical meddler Zbigniew Brzezinski and the myriad of US-funded NGOs that promote these “new global values.”

Photo: Libyan rebel leader Gibril Elqarfally stands before the Fortune 500-funded Brookings Institution openly declaring fealty to the globalist agenda of interdependency and subservience to a Wall Street-London international order.
....

When asked by an audience member what Libya will look like in 2025, it turns out conveniently he was part of a study by Libyan professors and “Libyan practitioners” in 2007-2008 titled “Libya: Vision 2025.” Not surprisingly, this project was conducted with input from the IMF and involved Libya’s placement within the “global scene.” Elwarfally laments that Libya’s oil reserves are limited and that the solution is a transition to a service economy. He also claims Vision 2025′s conclusion included an education shift, turning Libya into “a lake” to develop the skills of Africans to serve the needs of the European Union.

Surely Africans are eager to once again be in the service of wealthy Europeans, who at one point owned tremendous swaths of their continent, some tycoons naming entire nations after themselves in the ultimate expression of imperial megalomania. Elwarfally, a man educated in Pittsburgh, and apparently a lifelong fan of globalization, stuns us with his frank comments and his disturbing vision for the future of not only Libya, but the role it will play in directing Africa’s efforts and resources toward American and European corporate-financier interests.

While Qaddafi's comments are dismissed out of hand, a recent message sent to his followers amidst fighting in Tripoli declared, "the traitors are paving the way for the occupation forces to be deployed in Tripoli." It seems no truer words have ever been spoken and the Libyan people, including the rebels, will have no one but themselves to blame if they allow such a way to be paved.

Is the “Imminent Liberation of Libya” Propaganda?

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
August 21, 2011

The corporate media today is reporting that the so-called Libyan rebels consisting of tribal gangs and al-Qaeda under the direction of NATO and the CIA are close to liberating Tripoli and deposing Muammar Gaddafi.

Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the rebel leader and member of the al-Qaeda linked Harabi tribe, told Al Arabiya on Sunday that his group will “strangle Gaddafi’s troops tonight,” according to Bloomberg.

“Gaddafi’s days are numbered,” boasted U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman from the CIA-rebel “stronghold” of Benghazi. “The best-case scenario is for Gaddafi to step down now… that’s the best protection for civilians.”

In other words, if Gaddafi does not “step down” and stop resisting the foreign takeover of his country by NATO and the U.S., the CIA’s rebels (known for brutalizing civilians) and NATO bombing raids will kill more innocent Libyans.

Is al-Qaeda in Libya and the CIA really on the verge of “liberating” Libya from Gaddafi? Depends on who is doing the reporting.

According to the Pentagon script-readers at ABC-CBS-CNN-Fox et al, the rebels are on the verge of victory. However, independent journalists report a far different story (as Lizzie Phelan did for RT, see video below).

Neocons and supporters of NATO’s terror bombings have criticized reports from Russia Today because the network is owned by the Russian government. RT routinely interviews independent journalists and analysts ignored by the alphabet corporate media, thus providing an alternative view of the situation in Libya.

Indeed, RT and and Iran’s Press TV are government media operations. On the other hand, the CIA’s Mockingbird corporate media in the United States is largely a Pentagon psyop churning out 24-7 war propaganda.

Following the documented WMD lies foisted on the public by the corporate media in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq – current death toll: 1.5 million – the public should be more than skeptical about any claims “reported” about Libya from hotels in Qatar by “journalists” and former military careerists working for the corporate media.

Color Revolutions 101

Color Revolutions & Geopolitics: covering a new weapon in the neo-imperialists' arsenal.

There is a well-researched new blog titled "Color Revolutions & Geopolitics" run by Eric Pottenger and Jeff Friesen breaking down the terrifyingly effective fake "pro-democracy" movements that are destabilizing nations around the world and making way for Wall Street-London puppets to take over and roll each nation into a growing global empire.

They have been recently featured on Russia Today and write well-researched, in-depth articles regarding the intricacies of Western engineered color revolutions operating under the guise of "pro-democracy" movements. The information in the side-bar of the site alone is worth a look and guaranteed to challenge the convictions of those still laboring under the delusion that America is some sort of benevolent dispenser of democracy and human rights.

What we are seeing on TV each evening and are being told are spontaneous, indigenous revolutions are clearly planned years in advance with an immense amount of theory, experience, money, and networking invested to make the scenes of chaos now unfolding throughout Northern Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Asia a reality. Color Revolutions & Geopolitics breaks it down in detail and reveals the tricks behind this political illusion.

The site also serves as a nexus for other articles from across the web focusing on the phenomenon of color revolutions. Recent nations covered include Ukraine, Zimbabwe, Iran, and Bosnia. Below are two instructive interviews given on RT by both Eric Pottenger and Jeff Friesen.

Forget the Hoax, Ron Paul is a Presidential Front Runner

Desperate Bid To Sideline Texas Congressman As Fringe Candidate

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Infowars.com
Saturday, August 13, 2011

The Republican establishment, spearheaded by neo-con talking heads like Rush Limbaugh, are once again party to an orchestrated hoax as part of an effort to sideline Ron Paul by claiming he is a fringe candidate even as his success in national polls prove he is a powerful front runner for the 2012 presidential election.


During a recent monologue on his radio show, Limbaugh, who once admitted that he was a water carrier for the Republican Party, claimed that Ron Paul would destroy the GOP, and that Paul’s supporters were “nuts on parade”.

As the video above illustrates, not only has Ron Paul received more than double the amount of donations from active duty military personnel than all of the other Republican candidates combined, he has also raised more money from the troops than President Obama himself.

By characterizing Ron Paul supporters as “nuts on parade,” Limbaugh has simultaneously insulted the thousands of U.S. troops he routinely claims to support.

The Texan Congressman’s recent success in nationwide polls underscores how promising his chances are as we approach the height of the election season, a prospect that has the establishment running scared.

- According to numerous different polls, Paul romped to victory in Thursday’s presidential debate in Iowa. He received more than triple the number of votes garnered by runner-up Newt Gingrich, according to a Fox News poll which was later pulled from the Fox News website.

- The Washington Post speculates that Paul could win the key Ames straw poll this weekend or at the very least perform well against the likes of Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty.

- A new CNN/ORC poll shows that Ron Paul is a front runner nationally, currently tied in third with 12 per cent behind Romney and Perry.

- Ron Paul has consistently won major Republican straw polls, including the Republican Leadership Conference poll, and the crucial CPAC straw poll.

- Ron Paul led the other candidates in both first and second quarter fundraising.

- Every other candidate is a compromised RINO Republican who has betrayed their own rhetoric with their past behavior. Mitt Romney was the author of an almost identical proposal to Obamacare, Rick Perry is an affirmed globalist, Michele Bachmann, the so-called Tea Party (Taxed Enough Already) candidate, is a former tax collector, Herman Cain is a former Federal Reserve insider. Ron Paul is the only genuine true conservative who can be trusted to stick to his principles.

As we pointed out last year, Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate who can defeat Obama. Despite Obama’s plummeting popularity, Paul’s GOP rivals, the likes of Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, have all lost support at a similar pace to the President.

The talking point being repeated by neo-cons and other establishment media types of ‘I like Ron Paul, but he cannot win,’ is a transparent bid to manipulate the American people by pretending that Paul is a fringe candidate even as his poll successes prove he is a front runner.

Only by challenging this fraud head on can we communicate the fact that Ron Paul’s policies represent the only solution to help rescue a crumbling America that has been gutted economically, socially and geopolitically by decades of phony partisanship and a complete abrogation from both parties of the constitutional foundation of the country.

Complete Course in Food & Population Control as a Weapon

SOMALIA: FAMINE FOR PROFIT AND THE EAST AFRICAN FOOD CRISIS


Written by Nile Bowie
Photographed by James Nachtwey

Few parts of the world aptly fit the description of hell better than Somalia’s crumbling capital city, Mogadishu; a nation ravaged by imperialism, domestic instability and economic sabotage from foreign forces. Parades of malnourished Africans queuing up to receive rations are trumpeted in thirty second news pieces on most mainstream media outlets, of which offer embarrassingly insubstantial examples of journalism with little explanation for such images of unparalleled inequality, past the effects of droughts, while never missing the opportunity to highlight the threat of al-Qaeda. While it cannot be denied that the current droughts in East Africa, which have been reported to be the most dire in sixty years, have been negatively exacerbating the climate of food availability in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia; the mammoth aid conglomerates which ‘shake their coin cup’ for incoming donations from the predominately cash-strapped civilian populations of the ‘developed’ world and the reporting mainstream media outlets consistently fail to maturely scrutinize the basis for such economic dysfunction in East Africa, responsible for the starvation of thousands of people. In Somalia’s case (a nation once self sufficient in it’s food production), the ‘economic medicine’ of the International Monetary Fund and the behest of colossal oil robber-barrens have contributed far more devastation than droughts towards producing the images of deprived and inebriated bodies you see on television.

While a percentage of people around the world enjoy the supersized culture of fast food Globalization in our age of 3D HDTV, quadruple-decker cheese burgers and senseless commodity overproduction, three billion people or nearly half the world’s population individually sustain themselves on less than two USD per day amidst an annual surge in the global price of food, which has increased by thirty seven percent since last year. The loathsomely bias individuals which comprise the International Community, of whom are capable of feeding the entire African content with the loose change in their couch cushions, use today’s reports of legitimate or fabricated human rights abuses in Africa and all over the world as a pretext for exercising avenues of modern imperial conquest in the morally bankrupt pursuit of private geopolitical, economic and militarily strategic gain; this should lend serious credence to the motivations of East African aid supplied by Western Political & Financial Institutions, which have contributed to the very economic genocide responsible for requiring such aid to begin with. The area designated as modern day Somalia is a region believed to have produced the first Homo sapiens, who were responsible for crafting vast anthropological treasures and archeological artifacts, evidence of a highly sophisticated ancient civilization. The region once thrived as a bustling hub of commerce and lucrative international trade, Somali merchants of the time were chieftains of commercial exchange between Asia, Persia and Africa during the time of the Ming Dynasty and were even responsible for influencing Chinese linguistics during the period. Today, the people of Somalia are regarded as little more than ants at a picnic for the Intelligence Agencies and Corporate Interests that seek to occupy this strategically located area. The weapon of choice against them is man made famine.
