Brian reported:

'As Asia Times Online has reported, a full Arab League endorsement of a no-fly zone is a myth.

'Of the 22 full members, only 11 were present at the voting.

'Six of them were Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) members, the US-supported club of Gulf kingdoms/sheikhdoms, of which Saudi Arabia is the top dog.

'Syria and Algeria were against it.

'Saudi Arabia only had to "seduce" three other members to get the vote.

'Translation: only nine out of 22 members of the Arab League voted for the no-fly zone.

'The vote was essentially a House of Saud-led operation, with Arab League secretary general Amr Moussa keen to polish his CV with Washington with an eye to become the next Egyptian President.

'Thus, in the beginning, there was the great 2011 Arab revolt.

'Then, inexorably, came the US-Saudi counter-revolution .'

Don't tell that lying scumbag Joe Lieberman that. He and the rest of the murderous psychopaths in the US government keep insisting that the "Arab street" is on board with the illegal bombing of Libya.

the same GCC that supports the US invasion of Libya, also supports the crushing of bahrains protestors...that tells us how dodgy is the GCC

Hi Aangirfan,
This one is in the WTF category...

DARNA, Libya—Two former Afghan Mujahedeen and a six-year detainee at Guantanamo Bay have stepped to the fore of this city's military campaign, training new recruits for the front and to protect the city from infiltrators loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi.

The presence of Islamists like these amid the opposition has raised concerns, among some fellow rebels as well as their Western allies, that the goal of some Libyan fighters in battling Col. Gadhafi is to propagate Islamist extremism.""

hmmm Ok.

Neat answers in the original article's discussion by @Nixakliel.

There was never any Great Arab Revolt. It was all pre-planned for years by western intel agencies. the top dominoe was Egypt, going back to 2005.

Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich (both principled and commited non interventionists) move to defund unconstitutional war and both call it an "impeachable offense":

-"Opressed, rag tag" Libyan rebels create an oil company and central bank obviously with CIA/M16 help in order to debase the Libyan currency and get them into petrodollars:

-More on cb/oil:

-More from Bishop Martinelli who reports 50 abortions due to trauma and shortages of food, water and fuel:"Pray+for+Libya"

-Reportedly 1000 massacred in Ivory coast:

-Massive inflation in Iran forcing 3 zero to be lopped off currency, possible catalyst for further unrest:

-Al-Ciada in Brazil:

brian said...

another lie exposed

brian said...

in a real debate the libyan opposition can only rant and scream and walk off:
meet the man who rages at Gadaffi and says 10000 women and children were killed by him...that number alone is bogus...But his arrogance is what reallly shame the Trans council...

brian said...

the albaida massacre examined:

awkward insights: this article attempts to investigate the al-baida massacre, one of the founding atrocities used to justife US/NATO'intervention:

The writer says:'So it appears these regime-loyal fighters were not murdered for refusing to “shoot protesters.” Rather, it could be they were offed for refusing to join the insurgency. This goes strongly against t...he once-prevailing idea that the whole country had effectively mutinied, leaving an illegitimate and insanely depraved tyrant in charge with only a few paid thugs. '

this is likely, if so it shows once again how lies lead to war and truth is the first 2nd and third casualties
