On 27 March 2011, Democratic congressman Dennis J Kucinich wrote about war games and Libya (Libya's struggle ...):

According to Kucinich:

1. On 2 November 2010 France and Great Britain signed a mutual defence treaty.

This was to lead to "Southern Mistral" (, a series of war games.

Southern Mistral involved an air attack, called Southern Storm, against a dictatorship in a fictitious southern country called Southland.

The joint military air strike was authorised by a pretend United Nations Security Council Resolution.

The "Composite Air Operations" were planned for the period of 21-25 March, 2011.

2. On 20 March, 2011, the USA joined France and Great Britain in an air attack on Libya.

3. Are the war games Operation Odyssey Dawn?

4. Were the Libyan opposition told about the existence of Southern Mistral/Southern Storm?

This could have encouraged them to violence?

5. Libya was attacked, we have been told, because Gaddafi allegedly had killed 6,000 of his own people.

But is this true?

It sounds like Iraq: "Saddam was killing his own people, will kill his people, or will kill us if we don"t get him first."

The Iraq war begins its ninth year.

The cost is in excess of $3 trillion.

The intelligence making the case for the war was "sexed up".

"In the name of saving the people of Iraq, we bombed the country, invaded, changed the regime and it is still a carnival of death."

It appears that in seeking to punish Iraq, the Congress was influenced by another incident that occurred five months earlier in another Iraqi-Kurdish city, Halabjah. In March 1988, the Kurds at Halabjah were bombarded with chemical weapons, producing a great many deaths. Photographs of them Kurdish victims were widely disseminated in the international media. Iraq was blamed for the Halabjah attack, even though it was subsequently brought out that Iran too had used chemicals in this operation, and it seemed likely that it was the Iranian bombardment that had actually killed the Kurds.

Nice job Anon.


It's a big doc, but one thinks the most pertinent phrase is "The EC strategy has one overarching objective: to consolidate Libya’s integration in the rules based international political and economic system"

thx Anon, thx local949

You know that 2008 war on Gaza which was suppose to be an Israeli defense attack against Hamas rockets? They did the war games thing in 2004. They built a $4 million (if I remember correctly, mabe it was more) city in the Negev desert of Gaza complete with schools and mosques and played war games. Can you imagine? Schools and mosques? And that's exactly what got targeted in the Cast Lead operation. Sure, defensive and people really bought that. It's insulting to then come and hand people such bullshit.
