The Washington Times, Wednesday, May 11, 2011.
Less than two weeks after U.S. special operations commandos killed Osama bin Laden, a resolution viewed as an expansion of the legal basis for the global war on terror is moving through Congress.
The House Armed Services Committee added language to the fiscal 2012 Defense Authorization bill on Wednesday that would define the current war on al Qaeda to include the Taliban and affiliated armed groups, affirming the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia’s interpretation of the …

Gaddafi’s refusal of the World Bank, IMF, Western multinationals & AFRICOM: the real casus belli obscured by ‘humanitarian’ deceits

Libya’s Robin Hood and the Robbers

With every passing day, the Libyan picture becomes clearer. The emerging picture confirms what most people, including imperialists, know — that the reason for the military action against Libya is anything but humanitarian.
Protecting Libya’s civilians from Muammar Gaddafi’s forces is only a cover for a campaign aimed at regime change and the plunder of the resources not only of Libya but also of the whole of Africa.
According to a shocking article posted on OpEdNews.com, the Libyan war has its …

Why Is Gaddafi Being Demonized?

By Anonymous African Woman / April 21st, 2011.
It was [Mouammar] Gaddafi’s Libya that offered all of Africa its first revolution in modern times – connecting the entire continent by telephone, television, radio broadcasting and several other technological applications such as telemedicine and distance teaching. And thanks to the WMAX radio bridge, a low cost connection was made available across the continent, including in rural areas.
It began in 1992, when 45 African nations established RASCOM (Regional African Satellite Communication Organization) so that Africa would have its own satellite and slash communication …

Flat-out lies continue as NATO moves to invade Libya

Britain and France escalate war in Libya
By Patrick Martin.
Great Britain and France, the two European powers spearheading the war against Libya, are taking new steps to escalate the military intervention. British Foreign Minister William Hague announced Tuesday that as many as 20 British military officers were going to Benghazi to direct the forces fighting Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi. France has deployed additional air capability, including the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle.
The British decision is the most fateful, since it is a clear signal that the NATO powers, including the United …

Imperialist powers prepare escalation of Libyan war

By Patrick Martin.
The United States, Britain and France are moving towards a significant escalation of the war against Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi, with leaders of the US-backed rebellion calling for the deployment of ground troops from the NATO powers, as well as stepped-up bombing.
The impetus for escalation comes from the evident failure of the initial intervention, which combined heavy NATO bombing with an offensive by the US-backed rebel forces based in eastern Libya, with their headquarters and political center in Benghazi.
Over the weekend, Gaddafi’s forces continued to hold the military …

Washington’s Long War Against Africa

By James Petras / April 17th, 2011.
The US bombing of Libya in support of rebel clients in the spring of 2011 is part and parcel of a sustained policy of military intervention in Africa since at least the mid 1950’s. According to a US Congressional Research Service Study published in November 2010,1 Washington has dispatched anywhere between hundreds and several thousand combat troops, dozens of fighter planes and warships to buttress client dictatorships or to unseat adversarial regimes in dozens of countries, almost on a yearly bases.
The record shows the …

BBC, Libya, & Cluster Bombs

Globalists want to expand Libya war- rhetoric fortuitously changes in tandem.
By Tony Cartalucci.
Bangkok, Thailand April 16, 2011 – The ink was not even dry on the joint op-ed in New York Times written under the names of Obama, Sarkozy, and Cameron, when justification for their proposed expansion of the conflict was conveniently rolled out for public consumption. Reports by the corporate-financier fundedHuman Rights Watch immediately followed up calls to expand the mandate in Libya, claiming “cluster bombs” were being used in the city of Misrata.
The Libyan government has denied these allegations stating …

Libya: All About Oil or All About Banking?

By Ellen Hodgson Brown / April 14th, 2011.
Several writers have noted the odd fact that the Libyan rebels took time out from their rebellion in March to create their own central bank – this before they even had a government. Robert Wenzel wrote in the Economic Policy Journal:
I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising. This suggests we have a bit more than a rag tag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some …
