Brian has supplied us with more links on Libya:

US fomenting violence in Libya (24 February 2001 -Associated press /

Venezuela and Cuba have both stated that the USA is organising the unrest in Libya to justify an invasion in order to seize oil reserves.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro questioned the truthfulness of media reports on Libya.

"They are creating conditions to justify an invasion of Libya," Maduro said.

Castro has said the unrest in Libya might be a pretext by the US to push for a NATO invasion.

Who are the protesters in Libya? (

The National Conference for the Libyan Opposition was formed in 2005 in London, and is led by the National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL).

The most recent National Congress of the NFSL was held in the United States in July, 2007.

The CIA trains and finances the NFSL.

The CIA's Freedom House has agents from Libya.

PressTV - 'Gaddafi will not flee from Libya'

According to Ali al-Ahmed, director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs:

"Gaddafi ... has a lot of loyalists...

"Unlike other leaders, Gaddafi, himself, does not live a life of luxury...

"He basically lives a fairly simple life and until a month and a half ago he was walking in Tripoli among the people without fear of anybody attacking him. So, he has support within the Libyan society...

"I remember reading a book by Mr. Gaddafi. It was called The Village.

"He wanted to keep Libya basically like a village and maybe that is his own vision to keep the country like a village, because he said the village is purer and does not have the same sins of the city...

"Libya ... is one of the biggest investors in North Africa...

"He has a lot of supporters, who are willing to die for him for sure...

"The fact that he continued to rule for this long tells you that he still has a lot of supporters among the Libyan people...

"Regarding the United States' statement, they have always wanted to make him look bad because he was their enemy."

Voice of Libyan People

"The Voice of the Libyan People had a four year career with broadcasts against Muammar Qadhafi and Libya between 1984 and 1988.

"It was proclaimed as the voice for the National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL)...

"This group, according to Perry Shultz, established ties with the CIA...

"The station began broadcasting from the Sudan in March 1984 as a psychological warfare tool, just two months before the NFSL attempted a coup. The coup was crushed...

"The CIA planned another covert action, called Flower / Rose, which consisted of an armed NFSL rebellion based in Egypt, Algeria and Chad in 1986...

RM.libya - ACORN Home Page

From 1987-89 Israel and USA were training a "contra force of libyans" in west and central african countries.


"It also appears that the NFSL is already armed to the teeth and waging a military campaign against Qadaffi on the back of US-stoked regional instability.

"Even Qaddafi himself is accusing the West of arming the NFSL in this latest round of Libyan unrest.

"BBC propagandist Jon Leyne's unlikely narrative that Qaddafi's security forces were overwhelmed by unarmed protesters first in Banghazi's city center, then nearly 10 miles to the east at Benina International Airport and a nearby army base defies reality."

Here's a suggestion that the plan goes beyond the Arab world and intends to weaken the $ and create discontent in America, to facilitate a New World Order.

"U.S. is on the verge of engineered economic collapse, driven mainly by the steady and purposeful devaluation of the dollar and our quickly expanding national debt. If you are a corporate central banking group seeking the death of the greenback as the world reserve currency, you face the very serious problem of avoiding immediate blame or retribution for your actions. What better way to escape the torches and pitchforks of the furious populace than to find a scapegoat, or a distraction even more terrifying than poverty?

Middle East turbulence provides the perfect smokescreen for the inflationary destruction of the dollar."

that CIA page on NSFL is te most important thing ive seen shows the US has been working to create assassins...and in effect have engineered the current crisis, which they now blame on Gadaffi.

brian said...

Its not really Obamas coup...This was begun decades ago. NFSL was formed in 1981 and is a Reagan project...but the president is just a figure head, behind which we have the power elite...

Order Out of Chaos....

Please read my post by the above name at

In it The Olive Grower explains all of this perfectly clearly! He does not go into the who what where when or why, but he does explain every little bit of it from the spiritual perspective ....

This is probably one of the most timely posts I have had the privilege of putting up and I do think it should be a must read for as many as possible.

Frankly, it terrifies me yet gives a modicum of hope, just a whisp...

But no one outdoes Aangrfan with political analysis...

Agree with Brian - Presidents are just cut to whatever pattern concensus (and fashion) favours at the time - and their time in office is equally dictated by the power brokers and business elites. Time reported that Gadaffi has already ordered his security forces to blow up oil facilities.

If the political and economic ideals of the party figurehead and administration coincides with the interests of those who put them in office then the shit hits the fan.

What is one man's democratic ideals is another man's pot of gold.

To exploit what's happening to take shots at the Obama administration (whilst enoyable) leaves a dirty right-wing smell in my nostrils.

Perhaps the Republicans are hell bent on having another Bush-figure in the white house come the elections. What better way to drag the democrats into the mire than having them march into another controversial invasion.

Oil is a security concern. There's no getting away from that fact.

There is another opposition than the CIA-backed NFSL. It's islamic royalists backed by the CIA. See the insurgents fly flag of the kingdom.

Please spread the word. The mass media try once again to fool the world.

another somewhat useful piee on Libya

brian said...

keep in mind that much of what we read comes from dodgy soures:

' Ian Black, for instance, observes: "Exiled groups such as the National Front for the Salvation of Libya are thought to enjoy little support among the country's 6.5 million people." To be sure, much of the media are not only heavily relying on "information" from the NFSL but also presenting its leading members as credible alternative leaders as well as political experts, but that is all the more reasons to be skeptical. Recall the efforts to spin the Egyptian revolution first and foremost as a Facebook revolution engineered, behind the scenes, by Gene Sharp-reading, Otpor-emulating young professionals schooled in the Academy of Change in Qatar.

interesting article on Libya

'One week after the Day of Rage, and scratching beneath the surface of the myriad of events coming out of Libya, one week after we asked in this column Who or What is behind the "uprising" against Colonel Muammar Gathafi, the first answers begin to appear...and interesting ones they are.

43480.jpegThe Libyan "uprising" appeared a little strange from the beginning, due to the fact that it was presented as another wave of Middle East protest against corrupt regimes which held the people down, siphoned off the resources and put nothing back in return. While that was true in Tunisia and Egypt, where the "Revolutions" were concentrated in the capital cities, Libya's centre of unrest was way out East in the tribal lands of Cyrenaica. Odd.

Libya vs iraq
the spectre of colour revolutions means that words get twisted around.
What we have in Libya looks like an insurgency, which is an uprising against a legitimate govt:

'An organized movement aimed at the overthrow of a constituted government through use of subversion and armed conflict.
Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms. US Department of Defense 2005.

which is the word used for the iraqi that case, the resistance is not an insurgency as the govt there is illegitimate!

organised movement...= colour revolution.

The Politics of Al Jazeera

The Libyan government has shut down the internet and phone lines and an information war is underway. Although one of the most professional news networks in the world, it has to be cautioned that Al Jazeera is not a neutral actor. It is subordinate to the Emir of Qatar and the Qatari government, which is also an autocracy. By picking and choosing what to report, Al Jazeera’s coverage of Libya is biased. This is evident when one studies Al Jazeera’s coverage of Bahrain, which has been restrained due to political ties between the leaders of Bahrain and Qatar.

Reports by Al Jazeera about Libyan jets firing on protesters in Tripoli and the major cities are unverified and questionable. [9] Hereto, the reports that Libyan jets have been attacking people in the streets have not been verified. No visual evidence of the jet attacks has been shown, while visual confirmation about other events have been coming out of Libya.

Al Jazeera is not alone in its biased reporting from Libya. The Saudi media is also relishing the events in Libya. Asharq Al-Awsat is a Saudi-owned paper that is strictly aligned to U.S. interests in the Middle East-North Africa (MENA) region. Its editor-in-chief is now running editorials glorifying the Arab League for their decision to suspend Libya, because of the use of force by Tripoli against Libyans protesters – why were such steps not taken for Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, or Yemen? Inside and outside the Arab World, the mainstream media is now creating the conditions for some sort of intervention in Libya.

whats interesting is that these attacks which have stirred half the world (like the baby incubators of 20 years ago) are unverified..and likely never occurred. But then the public is used to trusting the professional press....
