Voor de moord op Gaddafi noemde men het een revolutie, een opstand tegen een dictator, of zelfs een vrijheidsstrijd. Nu Libië zogenaamd geregeerd wordt door de nationale overgangsraad NTC, noemt men het een burgeroorlog. De waarheid is dat de NTC geen enkele macht heeft in Libië. De macht is in handen van de Westerse corporaties en de NATO, die met grof geweld een einde hebben gemaakt aan de democratische Jamahiriya. In Benghazi, waar de “opstand tegen Gaddafi” begon, hebben demonstranten nu het NTC-regeringsgebouw bestormd. En Bani Walid, een stad waar de bevolking en het Libische leger zich tot het laatste moment hebben verzet tegen de CIA-Al Qaida rebellen van de NATO, lijkt weer bevrijd van de NATO-NTC. Nu noemt men het een burgeroorlog, maar het is verzet tegen de buitenlandse bezetters en hun collaborateurs! Die strijd is nog lang niet voorbij!

Franklin Lamb bevindt zich weer in Tripoli. Hij schreef op 15 januari:
Will A Pro-Gadhafi “Green Revolution” Topple The NTC?

There is clear and growing pro-Gadhafi political and military activity here and it is why NTC leader Mustapha Abdul Jalil, the other day warned against the Gadhafi children raising an insurrection. Aisha Gadhafi, given Saif’s current incarceration, is perhaps the likely leader, given her intelligence, energy and strong commitment to replace “NATO’s rebels”, vindicate her father, preserve his correct legacy, and organize a reform movement along the lines that she and some family members and loyalists were working–with the approval, she claims, of her father before his death.

Every night more pro-Gadhafi graffiti appears on street walls, buildings and around Green (Martyrs) Square. Activists, and there appear to be more every day, assert that so far the NTC has not attacked them and they feel fairly free to speak out and even organize. It is anyone’s guess how long this situation will exist before a violent crackdown and open fighting.

Dat heeft dus nog geen week geduurd! Het resultaat is wel dat er opeens weer nieuws uit Libië verschijnt, maar we gaan eerst even naar de hopeloze achtergrond van deze zogenaamde strijd van de VS en de NATO tegen het “terrorisme”. Het gaat om een interview van RT met een voormalige CIA officier, Michael Scheuer, uit november vorig jaar. Ook de situatie in Libië komt aan de orde.

Washington’s Enemy ‘Doesn’t Exist’ : Former CIA Officer

RT Interview with Michael Scheuer

Americans are in the crosshairs of terrorists worldwide purely due to Washington’s policy in the Muslim world, not because there is an Islamic enemy whose only aim is to kill Americans for their freedoms and lifestyle, insists a former CIA officer.

‘Western puppets smash dreams of new Libya’

De westerse “vrijheid en democratie” viert hoogtij in Libië, maar Aisha Gaddafi heeft aangifte gedaan van de moord op haar vader en haar broer Mutassin. Zij is samen met haar moeder en twee van haar broers gevlucht naar Algerije, waar ze diplomatieke bescherming heeft gekregen. Het Internationale Strafhof in Den Haag maakt echter volstrekt geen haast met het onderzoek naar de openlijke moord op haar vader, terwijl de YouTubes van deze oorlogsmisdaad overal op Internet rondslingeren!

US-NATO war crimes in Libya
23 January 2012

A report released last week by Middle East human rights groups presents extensive evidence of war crimes carried out in Libya by the United States, NATO and their proxy “rebel” forces during last year’s war, which brought down the regime of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. The “Report of the Independent Civil Society Fact-Finding Mission to Libya” presents findings of an investigation carried out last November by the Arab Organization for Human Rights, together with the Palestinian Center for Human Rights and the International Legal Assistance Consortium.

Based on interviews with victims of war crimes as well as with witnesses and Libyan officials in Tripoli, Zawiya, Sibrata, Khoms, Zliten, Misrata, Tawergha and Sirte, the report calls for the investigation of evidence that NATO targeted civilian sites, causing many deaths and injuries. Civilian facilities targeted by NATO bombs and missiles included schools, government buildings, at least one food warehouse, and private homes.

The report also presents evidence of systematic murder, torture, expulsion and abuse of suspected Gaddafi loyalists by the NATO-backed “rebel” forces of the National Transitional Council (NTC). It describes the forced expulsion of the mostly black-skinned inhabitants of Tawergha and the ongoing persecution of sub-Saharan migrant workers by forces allied to the NTC and its transitional government.

The investigators report savage and repeated beatings of prisoners held without trial or charges, the summary execution of pro-Gaddafi fighters, and witness reports of “indiscriminate and retaliatory murders, including the ‘slaughter’ (i.e., throat slitting) of former combatants.”

The war devastated the country. The NTC—an unstable coalition of ex-Gaddafi regime officials, Islamists, including some with links to Al Qaeda, and Western intelligence assets—itself estimates that the war took 50,000 lives and injured another 50,000 people. Rising infighting between the NTC’s factions is opening the door to full-scale civil war between rival clan-based and regional militias.

Just this weekend, amid warnings from NTC Chairman Mustafa Abdel Jalil of looming civil war, a crowd demanding the resignation of the transitional government forced its way into the NTC’s headquarters in Benghazi. Abdel Hafiz Ghoga, the vice president of the NTC, promptly resigned.

Maar niet alleen heeft de vicepresident van de NTC zich terug getrokken, ook andere NTC leden zijn op non-actief gesteld!

Libya suspends transitional government members

BENGHAZI, Libya — The head of Libya’s transitional government on Sunday suspended delegates from Benghazi, the city that kicked off the movement that toppled ruler Moammar Gadhafi last year.

The suspension the latest sign of discord within the body that led the anti-Gadhafi uprising but has struggled to establish an effective government to replace his regime.

The move follows protests in Benghazi accusing the body of corruption and not moving fast enough on reform. It was prompted by street protests and rejected by the delegates.

The announcement came the day after protesters stormed the National Transitional Council offices in Benghazi and carted off computers, chairs and desks while Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, head of the NTC, was holed up inside.

Volgens Sukant Chandan, een woordvoerder voor British Civilians for Peace in Libya, kan ook het hoofd van de NTC, Mustafa Abdel Jalil, beter zijn biezen pakken voor hij wordt vermoord!

‘NTC head may resign – if he makes it out alive’

De “vrijheidsstrijd van de Libische rebellen” is nu veranderd in een “burgeroorlog!” Verder is er niet veel veranderd, er worden alleen andere woorden gebruikt.

    Beste Ankie,

    Tot op heden heb ik geen enkele bevestiging gezien van de vrijlating van Saif. Ga er maar van uit dat het niet waar is.

    Intussen in Libië:

    Libya: a year on

    Yevgeny Satanovsky, a political scientist and Director of the Middle East Institute, fears the barrel might explode before the fuse is neutralized.

    “Libya is not a unified country any more. Formally, it has retained its borders, but operating within those borders are various tribes, militants and radical Islamist groups of the Al Qaeda stripe, who hadn’t been there under Gaddafi. They are fighting one another in what appears to be a smoldering civil war. Libya is gradually falling apart and is beginning to look more like Somalia, with signs of a deepening conflict between Berbers and Arabs in the west along the border with Tunisia and Algeria. Chaos and mismanagement are reigning in the provinces and human rights are being grossly violated. It’s common practice – the new authorities are taking a bloody revenge on the tribes which supported Gaddafi a year ago. Humanitarian aid is being looted in the most appalling way.”

    The United States has spent $2 billion on special operations aimed at toppling Gaddafi. France has spent 300 million euros. Saudi Arabia and Qatar contributed by unleashing a broad anti-Qaddafi campaign in the media, sending mercenaries and supplying arms to the rebels. The fact that the West managed to win some of the Arab countries over to its side is another lesson that needs to be learnt from the Libyan war. Hussein Nasrullah, chief editor of the Al-Mutauasset magazine, thinks that the West is successfully pursuing a divide-and-rule policy towards the Arab world.

    In the Arab analyst’s view, the West has devised and tested a technology for the seizure of Arab countries, which it is going to apply in the Middle East in the future.

    “The military strikes against Libya made it clear that the West was targeting infrastructure facilities and committing genocide against Libyans. Now the focus is on Syria. The West may destabilize the entire region if the Libyan scenario repeats itself in Syria. The West turned the Libyan campaign in its favor, split Tunisia with the help with the Muslim Brotherhood, divided Egypt through the Higher Military Council, succeeded in Yemen, and is now accomplishing the fragmentation of Sudan. And we don’t know what may happen in Iraq and Algeria in the near future.”

    National survey reveals Libyans would prefer one-man-rule over democracy zegt de Universiteit van Oxford!

    OXFORD, United Kingdom, Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The first ever National Survey of Libya suggests that the population would still prefer one-man-rule over alternatives like democracy. The publication of the survey of over 2,000 Libyan people coincides with the anniversary of the first protests triggered by rebel forces against Gaddafi, which ended after months of fighting when he was killed in October 2011. Despite the widespread hatred of the Gaddafi regime, this survey of public opinion reveals that in five years’ time 35 percent would still like a strong leader or leaders for the country. Only 29 percent of those surveyed said they would prefer to live in a democracy. However, 69 percent of respondents also insisted that ordinary citizens should have a say in how the country should develop.

    New clashes rock Libyan desert town

    Tripoli: Fresh tribal clashes erupted today in Libya’s remote southeastern desert, with one man saying five members of his clan had been killed, a toll that could not be independently verified.

    Clashes between the Zwai and the Toubu tribes in the town of Kufra broke out for a third consecutive day today after 17 people were killed in fierce fighting over the first two days.

    Turki Tobawi, from the Toubu tribe, told AFP by telephone that five of his comrades had been killed today, but another member of his clan said there were only injuries reported in the fighting.

    Tobawi said his people were surrounded by members of the Zwai tribe.

    Tension high after 100 dead in Libya

    Tripoli – Tribal clashes in the southeastern city of Kufra cost more than 100 lives and displaced half the population, the United Nations said on Monday, adding the situation remained tense despite a truce.

    “More than 100 have been killed as a result of fighting and as much as half of the town’s population has sought refugee elsewhere,” UN agencies said in a joint statement based on an assessment mission to the area.

    Libya ‘close to disintegration’ – PM

    Speaking on the first anniversary of the anti-Gaddafi revolution in Misurata Monday, interim Libyan Prime Minister Mustafa Abdeljalil warned of complete national disintegration if the rival tribes and clans that had laid hands on Gaddafi’s arsenals continued to refuse to submit to the authority of the central government.

    Libya militia boss says not ready to lay down arms

    TRIPOLI (Reuters) – A powerful Libyan militia will not heed a government request to disband because the incentives on offer are not generous enough, the force’s leader said, demanding houses, cars and loans for his men so they can “realise our dreams.”

    Militias fought to end Muammar Gaddafi’s 42-year rule, but five months later their heavily-armed units are still patrolling the streets, answering only to their own commanders and flouting the authority of the country’s new rulers.

    Assessing Al-Qa`ida’s Presence in the New Libya

    Mar 22, 2012
    Authors: Aaron Y. Zelin, Andrew Lebovich

    A year after Libyans rose up against Colonel Mu`ammar Qadhafi, Western governments and observers continue to watch the security situation in that country with trepidation, concerned with instability in the wake of Qadhafi’s ouster but also watchful for a possible spread of al-Qa`ida in the sparsely populated, oil-rich country.

    This article provides an overview of the history of Libyans in jihadist organizations (including al-Qa`ida), an assessment of al-Qa`ida and affiliated media activities following the Libyan uprising, an analysis of available evidence of a potential al-Qa`ida presence in Libya, and an evaluation of the possible role the group could occupy in a new Libya.

    A Coup In Mali – Made In Libya?

    Yesterday, Malian soldiers made a lightning grab for power in the West African nation and today they seem to be wholly in charge, prompting calls from the UN, U.S. and others for a swift return to democratic government.

    I freely admit I know diddely-squat about Mali, but I know of some very clever people who do and they are by-and-large all saying the same things: that Mali wasn’t exactly the “bastion of democracy” in West Africa that Hillary Clinton is making it out to have been and that the coup is another of the forseen-but-unplanned-for consequences of intervention in Libya last year.

    Wat heeft Sarko toch een mazzel. Ligt al maanden achter bij de socialist Francois Hollande op de geigerteller van de komende Franse presidentverkiezingen. Moet zich als een razende derwisj verdedigen tegen beschuldigingen dat ie betrokken was bij een gevalletje onderzeebootcorruptie in Karachi en dat Khadaffi hem poen in de gleuf had bezorgd bij de vorige verkiezingscampagne. En wat gebeurt er? Ineens slaat ene Mo Merah toe en knalt losjes wat militairen en Joodse kinderen neer. De ferme Sarko die kortgeleden al pleitte voor het sluiten van de grenzen voor Mo’s en aanhang is meteen de linkse kerkleider rechts gepasseerd in de peilingen en lijkt op weg naar een tweede termijn.
    Opvallend: Merah was bekend bij de Franse snuffelorganisaties. Was in Afbaardistan en Pakistan geweest en kon zomaar bij het door de CIA geregisseerde Al Schijthuis horen. Maar ze deden verder niks. Tot het te laat was.
    En daarmee toont deze Mo sprekende gelijkenis met bijvoorbeeld de Noorse Bibi- en Gelleraanbidder Anders Breivik, de Luikse kerstman Nordine Amrani, Madrileense treinontregelaar Abdilmajid Fakhet, Theo van Gogh’s killer Mo Bouyeri en winkelcentrumschutter Tristan van der Vlis. Alle vijf eenzame wolven, die bekend waren bij petten- of secretsmurfen of er duistere contacten mee onderhielden. Al dan niet via een U-bocht.
    En deze Mo Merah zal niet de laatste wolf van deze roedel zijn. Er zullen er meer komen. Al was het alleen maar om de autoriteiten een handvat te geven om de zogenaamde veiligheidsmaatregelen aan te scherpen. Mochten de massa’s in de komende tijd aanleiding vinden om desnoods met geweld een eind te maken aan de uitkleedpraktijken van de neo-nali’s en de neocons dan staat het apparaat klaar om de boel met alle middelen en de wet in de hand neer te knuppelen.

    AP Interview: Libya leader admits failure on stability as 20 killed in tribal clash in south

    BENGHAZI, Libya — Libya’s leader acknowledged Monday that his government has failed to act quickly to restore stability, just as at least 20 people were killed in tribal battles in a southern city.

    The deadly clashes underlined the fragile nature of Libya after the fall of longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi. The central government has been unable to impose its authority even in the capital, and Libya is ruled instead by squabbling tribes and militias.

    Clashes in Southern Libya Kill Nearly 50

    TRIPOLI—Three days of clashes between rival militias in southern Libya spread to the center of the country’s fourth-largest city on Tuesday despite the deployment of army troops trying to quell the violence, which has so far killed nearly 50 people.

    The clashes highlight the challenges the government faces in imposing its authority after the ouster of Moammar Gadhafi.

    Fighting between gunmen from Sabha and fighters from the Tibu ethnic group had reached the center of Sabha, Libya’s fourth-largest city, Ibrahim Misbah, a doctor at the main hospital, said.

    An Interior Ministry official said the army had sent 300 soldiers stationed in southern Libya to help calm the situation on Monday. Another 300 soldiers left Tripoli on Tuesday to assist, he added.

    TRIPOLI, Libya — Militias from rival towns in western Libya battled each other with tanks and artillery on Tuesday in fierce fighting that killed at least 22 people, local officials said.

    The clashes erupted over the weekend between the Arab-majority town of Ragdalein and the Berber-dominated town of Zwara, some 110 kilometers (70 miles) west of the capital Tripoli. The violence is fueled by deep-rooted animosity between the neighbors, who took different sides in Libya’s civil war that toppled Moammar Gadhafi last year.

    The gunmen were “protesting the decision of the National Transitional Council to stop financial grants allocated to the revolutionaries,” who waged war against the regime of slain leader Moamer Gathafi last year.

    Prison Poison: Thousands jailed, many tortured by Libyan rebels

    Gepubliceerd op 12 mei 2012 door RussiaToday

    Thousands of supporters of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi are still being held in Libyan prisons, with many of them tortured – according to a UN report. Many jails are secret and under the control of armed rebels who refuse to comply with the country’s new government.

    Lawrence Freeman from the Executive Intelligence Review Magazine talks to RT. He says that there’s no sign Libya is getting closer to democracy.

    AMMAN: As the casualties mount from fresh clashes in southern Libya between soldiers and tribesmen, the security situation in the capital Tripoli, Zintan, Misrata and the eastern city of Benghazi remains shaky as militia groups extend their control.

    Militia from former rebel strongholds have mounted a series of attacks over the last week, including a blast at the office of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Misrata on Tuesday.

    A convoy carrying the British ambassador to Libya was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade in Benghazi on Monday, and days earlier, a rocket-propelled grenade was also fired at the US consulate in the eastern city. Two weeks ago, the international airport in Tripoli was seized by armed militia.

    Libya’s tribal clashes leave 105 dead

    Recent tribal clashes in western Libya left 105 people dead and some 500 injured, the government has said.

    Government spokesman Nasser al-Manaa said there had been no fighting in the mountainous area since Monday, following the deployment of the army.

    The area includes the towns of Zintan, Mizdah and Shegayga, some 150km (90 miles) south of the capital Tripoli.

    The week-long clashes were seen as a test for Libya’s new government, which has struggled to assert its authority.

    Snatched and detained – Libya’s “jungle law”

    TRIPOLI (Reuters) – Abdulnasser Ruhuma was asleep in his bed when the militia fighters barged into his Tripoli home. The shouting woke the Libyan bank worker and he rushed downstairs to find around 40 men pointing their rifles at him.

    Moments later they started beating him. Ruhuma’s wife and relatives begged the intruders to stop but they dragged him and his uncle away. Punched, hit with rifle butts and cut with knives, Ruhuma was taken to a makeshift detention centre in the middle of the night.

    In a stark reminder of the lawlessness that prevails in Libya eight months after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, the gunmen never told Ruhuma why they abducted him. He says it stems from a family issue – a relative wanted revenge, so he called on the help of an armed brigade.

    Tunisian plane destroys 2 vehicles near Libya

    TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — A pair of Tunisian fighter jets attacked and destroyed two vehicles filled with weapons crossing the desert border from Libya, while a third escaped to Algeria, a Tunisian security official said Thursday.

    The incident happened Wednesday evening near the triangle shaped no-man’s land in the Sahara desert where the borders of Tunisia, Libya and Algeria converge.

    The jets were on a routine patrol when they were fired on by the vehicles, which were carrying rocket propelled grenades, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because it was a matter for the Defense Ministry.

    The Defense Ministry has made no public comment about the incident, which has been widely reported in the Tunisian media.
