In Tripoli is de kruitdamp nu iets opgetrokken en de journalisten kunnen de toestand weer overzien. Toch is er helaas nog niets vernomen van de vermiste journalisten, geen nieuws van Franklin Lamb, Lizzy Phelan, Mahdi Nazemroaya en Thierry Meyssan. De journalisten van Al Jazeera die zo trouw de rebellen volgden, waren de eersten die de stad in konden. Wat een bloedbad! Wat een lijkenstank! Russia Today stuurde ook een journaliste, wat zij aantrof was een vrijwel uitgestorven Tripoli. Alleen de rebellen met hun guns durfden zich te wagen op straat. Waar een week geleden het dagelijkse leven ondanks de NATO-bombardementen nog gewoon doorging, heersen nu angst, verwoesting, dood en verderf!

RT in Tripoli: It feels rebels only people left in Libya

Geüpload door RussiaToday op 26 aug 2011

British Tornado jets have fired cruise missiles at Colonel Gaddafi’s command and control bunker in his hometown of Sirte, despite previous claims the coalition would not assist rebels in hunting him down. The colonel’s whereabouts are still unknown. RT correspondent Maria Finoshina is in Tripoli.

Deze ordinaire olieroof maakt definitief een einde aan iedere Al Qaida-mythe die de NATO ooit heeft verkondigd. Wat in 2003 nog mogelijk was in Irak, kan in 2011 echt niet meer. De protesten zullen zeker nog aanzwellen als de lijken zijn geruimd, de doden zijn geteld, de gewonden zijn verzorgd en de schade is opgenomen. Alleen de stad Sirte is nog niet in handen van de rebellen, terwijl de NATO de stad bombardeert, zijn de NATO-rebellen Sirte nu aan het veroveren! Ze willen hun hoofdkwartier trouwens verplaatsen van Benghazi naar Tripoli, maar ze zitten voorlopig wat krap bij kas! En waar is Gaddafi? George Galloway is bepaald geen vriend van Gaddafi, maar deze analyse is toch wel verhelderend:

Libyan Rebels strive to reach Gaddafi´s hometown of Sirte CCTV News

Fighting continues in Tripoli, despite rebels gaining control over large areas of the capital. Thursday saw gunfights erupting in the city’s Abu Salim district, one of the few remaining Gaddafi strongholds in the Tripoli. Further east, opposition forces are also trying to reach Gaddafi’s hometown of Sirte.
Heavy gunfights erupted in the Abu Salim district as NATO airstrikes cleared the way for rebels. Opposition forces swept through houses and side streets to flush out snipers.
Some hoped Muammar Gaddafi was hiding in the district with some of his sons. But it turned out that most residents were driven out of the city as the battle escalated.
Elsewhere in the capital, rebel forces are purging streets of diehard gunman still loyal to Gaddafi, as the war nears its end. Rebels have also claimed that they have secured Tripoli’s Airport after intense fighting with Gaddafi loyalists.
Abdul Salam Sakali, rebel commander, said, “We have total control over the airport from 4 directions. Our problem is with Gaddafi’s army. It is located in a far area and shoots at the airport. This area is totally secured and under control of the rebels. Airport officials can come and operate the airport as of today.”
Further east from Tripoli, rebels are still trying to put pressure on the last main bastion of Gaddafi’s forces along the Mediterranean coast. They are approaching Sirte from two sides as there is speculation that Gaddafi could have fled to the town. But rebel fighters have seen massive resistance in the towns of Bin Jawad and Ras Lanuf.
An opposition spokesman said they are trying to negotiate the surrender of defenders in those areas and hoped Gaddafi’s loyalists would eventually abandon Sirte.

The head of the Libyan rebel government has again called for the urgent release of frozen Libyan assets, saying it could face a “legitimacy crisis” if the people’s needs are not met, Associated Press reports. Mahmoud Jibril, head of the National Transitional Council, on Friday also urged the African Union to recognize the rebel government, a move that would ease the freeing up of Libya’s frozen assets. The opposition needs the money to pay state salaries and maintain services in Libya, including in areas still under Muammar Gaddafi’s control. The US and South Africa reached a deal Thursday that will release $1.5 billion in frozen Libyan assets in American banks.

De politieke consequenties van deze massamoord, deze rooftocht van de NATO onder het mom van “Responsability to Protect”, zullen zeker enorm zijn. Mathaba bericht:

On Wednesday Venezuela’s ambassador in Libya denounced the looting of his official residence by armed men, calling the assault “a violation of Venezuelan sovereignty” by “NATO itself.” The governments of Cuba, Ecuador, Bolivia, among other ALBA nations, denounced the violent attack as a “breach of international law,” as did Venezuela’s ruling United Socialist Party (PSUV).

Geüpload door RussiaToday op 27 aug 2011

The UN is calling for a halt to violence in Libya, as the rebels are advancing on Colonel Gaddafi’s hometown of Sirte with aerial support from NATO. British Tornado jets have fired cruise missiles at his command-and-control bunker in the town, regarded as Gaddafi’s last stronghold. The NATO bombings come despite previous statements from the Alliance that it wasn’t assisting rebels in their hunt for Gaddafi. There’s also been intense fighting near Tripoli’s international airport. RT’s Maria Finoshina, who’s in the capital, says many there are now living in fear of anarchy.

    10 Myths About Libya? Rejoinder

    Okay, spot on for the NATO alliance, which is exactly the problem. Africa has increasingly become a chess piece in a global competition for resources and cheap labor. It is no accident that the U.S. recently formed an African Command (Africom)—the Libyan War was the organization’s coming out party—and is training troops in countries that border the Sahara. It is already intervening in Somalia, and a recent story in the New York Times about an “al-Qaeda threat” in Northern Nigeria should send a collective chill down all our spines. NATO has already “war gamed” the possibility of intervention in the Gulf of Guinea to insure oil supplies in the advent of “civil disturbances” that might affect the flow of energy resources.

    Remembering a Neglected Atrocity: One Year After the Abu Salim Hospital Massacre

    August 21, 2012

    Planet Earth

    One year ago, the roughly week-long NATO-backed conquest of Tripoli was raging. The days starting on August 20 saw victory against a government accused of horrific abuses across Libya during the war, as well as numerous scenes of the same kind of barbarity in the capitol as their order crumbled there.

    The two largest among these warranted further study, and have now both received part of that due, thanks to the Citizen’s Investigation Into War Crimes in Libya (CIWCL). In June we released our first major report A Question Mark Over Yarmouk: Re-Thinking the Khamis Brigade Shed Massacre (152 pages – PDF download page). This exposed the largest and “most clear-cut” mass execution of the war, allegedly by government forces against 157 civilian prisoners. The best evidence, however, consistently points to this being a massively covered-up crime of the rebel militias.
