CRUSADERS & LIBYA

Odin's Raven drew our attention to the blog of Adam Curtis.

Adam Curtis's Blog refers to GOODIES AND BADDIES

Curtis wrote about the Libya Intervention:

"Some see it as a noble, disinterested use of Western power. Others see it as a smokescreen for a latter-day liberal imperialism."

on 29th Mar 2011, Bob Long commented:

Just been reading about Richard I and the crusades and something that comes across very strongly is that there can be a Great Project (capturing the Holy Lands, protecting innocents, whatever) which The People believe in completely sincerely and which becomes an opportunity for their leaders.

Those leaders can make great mileage by openly espousing the Great Project while using it to pursue their own ends.

In the Crusades, many leaders had no interest in freeing the Holy Lands but had a strong interest in getting a military foothold there - some arrived and promptly allied with the Muslims.

Likewise, many Muslims had not a jot of interest in who owned Jerusalem but fighting the infidel was a good route to political influence.

Felix left a comment on "LIBYA'S WATER":

All built by the Americans via the back door subsidiary of Brown & Root (Halli burton) in the UK, using Malta as the hop-off point, during the times when anyone else was in big trouble for trading with Libya,post Lockerbie.

I'm sure most are aware of this:

Interesting considering the French are so adamant in overthrowing Ghaddafi, and Ghaddafi's son apparently hangs out with Nat Rothschild and other Zionists.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/feb/27/gaddafi-son-saif-al-islam-profile

"Geneva places a high premium on guarding secrets, but rumours are a different currency. Amid momentous scenes being played out across the Middle East last week, sources in the Swiss financial centre were privately gossiping about a visit to Geneva earlier this year by Farhat Bengdara, the governor of the Central Bank of Libya.

According to one popular rumour, Bengdara had visited Geneva with a purpose. He was there to make changes to key Swiss accounts, into which flow hundreds of millions of dollars of Libyan oil money that are then allocated to the Libyan Investment Authority and the Libyan Central Bank.

Financiers in Geneva gossip that, as far back as 17 January, Bengdara established that four new names would be added as signatories on three crucial accounts controlling much of the money. The signatories were Colonel Muammar Gaddafi; his son Khamis, who heads Libya's infamous martyrs' battalion; the Libyan leader's daughter Aisha; and his son Saif al-Islam.

Where Libya's petro-dollars may have been channelled in the weeks since tensions first erupted across the Arab world is hard to say. But those who know him would be surprised if Saif did not hold the answers.
....

Saif is an acquaintance of Lord Mandelson and met the former Labour minister at a Corfu villa the week before it was announced that the Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, would be released from a Scottish prison. The two men met again when they were guests at Lord Rothschild's mansion in Buckinghamshire.

Rothschild's son and heir, Nat, also a close friend of Mandelson, held a party in New York attended by Saif in 2008. Saif in turn invited Nat Rothschild to his 37th birthday party in Montenegro, where the financier is investing in a luxury resort."

Hmmm....either way, another war that benefits only those that initiate them.

Definitely, coz Clooney's "beard" (aka girlfriend) is involved with mafia and high rank prostitution.

'The probable interactions between the English Puritan movement, culminating in the Civil War and the Protectorate, and the contemporary Amsterdam Jewish community , with its intense religious and cultural life, and its earnest Lurianic Cabalism in expectation of the Messiah, is a phase of religious history that has not been examined. Both Jews and Puritans lived in excited expectation of a coming divine event. The Puritans expected the Second Coming and the Christian millennium. It has recently been argued that Puritan cultivation of science had as a motive the bringing-in millennium working to make the world worthy of it, which would hasten its advent. Jewish Lurianic Cabalists worked with intensive meditation and prayer towards making possible the advent of the Messiah. The two movements may have interacted upon one another in more ways than we know."

This was the foundation of the British-Dutch Empire [ a lot more focussed on the British] which was built on vision[s] of a one future world.

The Jewish Messiah came in 1665 but promptly converted to Islam in 1666 , but , perhaps the 'work' had been done [ i.e getting certain people into positions of strategic, financial and military power].

Nowadays they seem to be able to dump a 'reality' on us and there are always enough who will take it up and belittl;e those who dare question the wisdom of the mythmakers.

The myth of the Land of Israel - well , u can even get other countries to defend that one .

In the late 1800s there was a shift away from GB seeing FRance as an enemy to GB seeing Germany as an enemy - which got everyone into a copule of nice wars.

You have me confused with this one?
Or perhaps it is the fact that religion would play any type of rational role in attacking any nation?

Scratching my head.

Or perhaps I need to consider that many people are insane. Deluded.
Whatever?

Or perhaps it is the fact that I am reading The Sane Society.
Erich Fromme, and am trying to understand the insanity in a so called Sane society, that is simply insane!

Sigh

Hi Aan,
I find the silence of BP this year re-Libya rather interesting. Apparently it was all ready to go off Sirte in 2011, thought there was an unexplained dispute with Exxon
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-12-10/bp-to-bring-pride-oil-rig-to-drill-libya-next-year-after-delay.html
There was also BP drilling expected to start onshore near Ghadames.
Worth going back to the Channel 4 piece on BP/Libya on Feb 21st
http://blogs.channel4.com/faisal-islam-on-economics/libya-bp-the-curse-of-oil-and-what-gaddafi-jr-failed-to-learn-at-the-lse/13783
Otherwise, it seems to be a case of "no comment" which is rather odd when it had a USD 1 Billion investment in these two projects over 7 years

FYI
is this why the ministes went over to the opposition/

'On February 16, 2009, Gaddafi took a step further and called on Libyans to back his proposal to dismantle the government and to distribute the oil wealth directly to the 5 million inhabitants of the country.
However, his plan to deliver oil revenues directly to the Libyan people met opposition by senior officials who could lose their jobs due to a parallel plan by Gaddafi to rid the state of corruption.
etc..very good article
